Only if you want to be arrested for child abandonment. If you wish to put the child up for adoption, use the proper channels. It is better to make your wishes known sooner, rather than later, so professionals can provide you with the proper counseling and so the proper arrangements can be made to facilitate giving up the baby, if that is what you decide.
