If you are 14 and pregnant can your parents or the father's parents make you give the baby up for adoption when it is born?
No, however your parents could place you into state foster care if you don't. Note that accord to the DOJ study, "Murder in Families", children raised by young mother are at the greatest danger of fatal child abuse. This accounts for 55% of fatal child abuse potentially committed by anyone.

No they can not. In the case of being a minor parent the minors have the same rights as adults to decide.
Answer . If you care about the future of your baby, it would be best to follow your parents advice. 1. Do you honestly think that you can provide for the educational and fi…nancial needs of a child? It costs a lot of money to raise a child and let's face it, you still don't have the resources to do that on your own. What skill do you have that will make employers want to beat down the door to hire you so that you can provide for your child. Do you have enough education that you will be able to give your child the emotional stimulation that he needs when he starts attending some of the AP classes in highschool? It's quite natural to believe that a mothers love is all that the child will need. But the truth is, at some level the child will resent you for being poor and un-educated. You aren't doing him any favors by keeping him and raising him as a single mother. 2. Think about the challanges to YOU as a single mother. What kind of future do you expect? I'm sure your parents will help where they can but it's a big burden and more than a reasonable person would expect of someone else. The advice of your parents is good, even though it may seem like a difficult thing to do right now. In the long run it will be best for both you and your child.. Answer .

Can the parents of a teenage pregnant daughter make the mother give up her baby or make her abort or do the young mothers have their own voice for their babies?
Answer . They cannot make you do anything. You have all the say and you can choose to keep or give the baby up for adoption. Since you are still very young, you should cons…ider giving the baby away to a family who will love it and support it. Abortion shouldn't even be a thought, it would be irresponsible and there are many physical and mental problems that will come later because of it.\n. \nParents are trying to do what is best for the teenager, but the teenager has rights and can choose. Pick your councel wisely. It isn't easy to give a child away, but it is rewarding to the couple you choose. Plus, you can make it an open adoption so you will have some contact over the years.. Answer . \nNo one can make a mother give up her baby even if the mother is not an adult. And you shouldn't let anyone tell you not to place a baby for adoption or not to have an abortion. Those kind of people are not taking the responsibility for you or your situation so it is none of their business.
Answer . No! The mother of the child is the only one who can make the decisions
Minors have the same legal rights to their child as does an adult mother unless a court rules otherwise. Parents of a pregnant minor cannot force the minor to have an abor…tion, place the child for adoption or sign over her parental rights. If the parents choose not to support their daughter during her pregnancy or afterwards, the minor female can petition the court for emancipation rights. The court will grant limited emancipation privileges to the minor female to allow her to be eligible for public assistance (such as Medicaid) during her pregnancy and afterwards for herself and her child. In most situations the minor female is placed in a group or foster home where she will be able to finish her education, learn parenting skills, receive guidance counseling and so forth. For legal assistance and counseling the minor might wish to contact the department of family and children's services in the state where she resides or, Birthright 1-800-550-4900 - See Link
Answer . \nno. your parents cannot make you give YOUR child up. you have rights too.
Answer . \nNo one can make you do anything you dont want to do. If you give the baby up for adoption it is your choice!! They cant tell you wat to do when it comes to your… child. But think if you can take care of the child. Good Luck!
Nope, you have to sign the papers. If you don't the child is yours. Parents can't make you give away your child.
I don't think so - but this is a very sensitive subject so I think you need to seek proper professional help. Also perhaps try talking to your parents if the situation allows …for that. Take Care. Legally you can not force your child to give up the custody. They are the guardian of their child and not you, no matter how old they are.
no they cant, but if your having a good relationship you could get married with the person all you need is a doctors note saying your pregnant and you could get married withou…t parent permision in Maryland. I know this because when i was 16 years of age the same thing happen to me and i wanted to know too but i found out about that and i got married. Anyways no they cant make you put the baby for adoption anywhere in the usa without your permission if you want or not.
If you are fifteen years old and pregnant can your parents or the father's parents make you give the baby up for adoption when it is born?
It's a personal choice, they cannot make you do anything actually. Do what you think is right & don't let everyone elses feelings affect your actions. You are the one, who in …the long run, will have to deal with your actions. Just remember do what YOU think is best.
No, the guardian of the baby is the female who carries it, not her parents.
If a child is underage, there are ways a parent/guardian can force their child to arrange an adoption. However, it is always better to compromise and negotiate with children, …even if they are not responsible enough to make that kind of decision, they are entitled to be educated and warned of the possible outcomes and hardships that come with raising their own children. Parents/Gaurdians who want this for your child, make sure that you approach it with love and support while keeping firm on the options that you give. As parent you don't want to make a child resent you. And I'm sure that you can understand how hard it would be to give up a child. Legally though you can not force your child to give up the custody. They are the guardian of their child and not you, no matter how old they are.
Legally no. You are the guardian of the child.
Legally no. It's up to the mother unless she has been found to be unfit.
Legally no. It's up to the mother unless she has been found to be unfit.
No. Regarding your child you are emancipated when making decisions on his/hers behalf.
