The way you worded that question is scary. You have god given rights, and legal rights. Neither of these change simply because you become pregnant. * A minor female in any US state has the same rights to her child as does an adult. She cannot be forced to have an abortion, place the child for adoption or relinquish her parental rights. Any minor who is being pressured to make any decision concerning herself and her unborn child and wishes to receivecounseling and legal assistance can contact the state's department of family services, or Planned Parenthood, http://plannedparenthood.org, 1-800-230-7526 or Birthright, http://www.birthright.org, 1-800-550-4900. Although the circumstances cited does not automatically confer emancipation to a minor female; all states have procedures which allow the court to emancipate a pregnant minor or one who is already has a child, for the purpose of said minor receiving public assistance such as Medicaid.

No, in Virginia you are not emancipated automatically when you are pregnant. It does not mean one has the ability to take care of yourself. You do have certain rights as to obtaining assistance for you and your child, but you are still the responsibility of your parents until you turn 18.

The Bill of Rights, written by James Madison, was influenced by the Virginia Declaration of Rights and the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom in many ways. The first ten amendments of the Bill of Rights are similar to the Declaration of Rights, written by George Mason. For example, Article 8 of the Virginia Declaration of Rights keeps people from "being deprived of his liberty except by the law of the land", which later developed into part of the federal Bill of Rights. There are also sections of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, written by Thomas Jefferson, that can compare to the Bill of Rights. The five basic freedoms, found in the first amendment, are still prevalent in our communities and governments today. Separation of church and state is still an issue. People everywhere still adament that they have religious freedom.


Yes. Being pregnant does not strip you of your civil rights.
