She couldn't. At least not openly or within the boundaries of state laws. In rare cases Family Court hears cases of a minor wanting to be emancipated. And even rarer cases grants the petition. How exactly could a 16 year old with a child survive? How would she finish her education (or would she). Support herself and her child? Even if those issues (and many others) were surmountable. The court simply would not allow a minor, take custody of a baby and attempt living on their own.
