Paternity would have to be established first. The father could then get custody and child support from the mother; she does not need to relinquish her parental rights for this.

But, if this involves aborting her rights by dropping the child at an ER or with family services, his chances of getting the child is about 15%, while still being required to pay child support and having little to no visitation rights. Often the child is place in foster care over 100 miles away.
