So I had an abortion and now my mother-in-law wants to take me to court for that and is constantly texting me and threatening that she will take me to court and that she will go to my house .
Tell her to stop harassing you and wasting her time. If she wants to go to court tell her to do it and you will be happy to accept service so she can mail the papers to you. Remind her that you will be asking for her to pay your costs and expenses, including attorney fees because they will probably be awarded by the court because her claim is frivolous.
If her son cannot object to you having an abortion why does she think she can?
You could respectfully suggest she read the US Supreme Court decision in Planned Parenthood of Missouri v. Danforth before she decides to waste her time and money attempting to sue you. If you feel in any way threatened by her messages then do not hesitate to contact law enforcement.
