Yes, the compulsory education law of MO. is 16, and the legal age of majority is 18. The situation is slightly different if there is a court order pertaining to child support.

Can a pregnant 14 year old get emancipated in Missouri?

No. There is no judge who would do that. At 14 you are not done with school and can not get a job or a place to live. You need your parents to support you and if emancipated they are no longer responsible for you and you are completely on your own. 14 is too young for that. When pregnant and after you decide things regarding your baby but your parents still decide regarding you.
