Anything is possible. Call your local county court house and ask the clerk of the court for help with this question. == Rights of Pregnant Minors = No. A pregnant minor has the same legal rights in such an matter as does an adult female. She cannot be forced to have an abortion, place the child for adoption or sign over her parental rights unless a court rules otherwise. In some states the parents of a minor may request a hearing concerning custodial issues of their minor daughter's child after the child is born. A judge cannot order a minor to place her child for adoption, obtain an abortion or relinquish parental rights, but can appoint a temporary custodian or guardian for the minor and her child. If the issue becomes one of the court, the judge will also appoint a Guardian Ad Litem to represent the minor in all legal matters concerning her pregnancy and parental rights. If the minor needs assistance she can contact the state's division of children and family services or if she prefers, Birthright, 1-800-550-4900, Planned Parenthood, 1-800-230-7526, http;//
