Can a 17 year old girl move out of her house in Texas?

Not legally without parental permission. The age of majority is 18. Until then you are the responsibility of your parents. They determine where you live and much of what you can do. There seem to be a misconception that you are an adult at 17 in Texas - you are not in any state unless you get an early emancipation by the court or get married. Running away is not moving out legally in any US state and it does not become more legal or make you any more of an adult if the police does not drag you home when they find you. You are still not emancipated until you are 18yo.

Is a minor emancipated in Texas when they have a child?

NO! You will be emancipated in any of the ways: Marriage, court ordered, turn 18 or join the armed services. Mainly teenage parents find this to be true, but it isnt. You are still responsible for your child, but until you are emancipated you are still under control of your parents. The reason being in Texas you can not enter legal contracts until the age of 18... examples: leases, owning cars/ house, opening lines of credit.
