Can a pregnant 17-year-old move out of her mother's home if her mother is trying to force her to put the baby up for adoption?

Legally, no. Leaving without parental consent could create more problems for the minor. However, the law presumes that the pregnant minor has the same rights as does a pregnant adult. No one can force her to have an abortion, place the child for adoption or relinquish her parental rights except a court of law. She can contact the state's department of family and children's services or, assistance in obtaining legal, medical, counseling, etc. from any of the following organizations.

Adoption services charge a fee to the adoptive mother to be, however, they typically do not charge a fee to the expectant mother. This is because most mothers who choose to adopt out aren't in a financial situation to be able to pay for the service.

The mother (the teen whatever) would have to locate a local adoption center and see the state/city's process for adoption.
