You mean give it up for adoption, I assume? I'll tell you the same thing I told someone else on this board: Most states, and I feel pretty certain it's *every* state have laws against this. No one can force you to give your child up for adoption. Teenage parents have the same rights as adult parents in regard to the right to have custody of their children. A minor's consent to give up her parental rights and allow the child to be adopted must be "voluntary, intelligent, and deliberate." If the teenager's consent to allow her child to be adopted is forced by her parents, or anyone else, then such consent will not be valid. If your parents are trying to force you do this, then call Legal Aid and ask to speak with someone about the rights of teenage parents. However, while your parents can not force you to give up your baby, they are also not responsible for taking care of/financially providing for your baby. Can you do that? This child will need clothes, diapers, formula, medical care, daycare (so that you can attend school and/or work), etc. That's a lot of expense. Do you have the money for that? You've made a adult mistake here by getting pregnant, so now you have to make an adult decision. The decision of rather or not to give the child up for adoption should be based on what's *best for the child* not what you want. Parents have been through the teen years, made their fare share of mistakes, and witnessed many things that give them wisdom. As a teen, you may think that taking responibility for your baby means to raise it on your own no matter how hard. Well, I am 17 and thought the same thing 8 months ago when I found out I was pregnant. You need to consider what responsibility means. Im sure you're a strong person who could raise a child with lots of determination. But, why not give this baby to a very capable family who knows what responibility is and maybe cant even have children of their own. A baby needs love, support, and nurturing and dont forget they take time and money.Tteens dont have a stable career that give them time and money to raise a baby. The most grown up and responible thing you can do is to give this baby to a family who you know can take care of him/her, and give her the wonderful life that he/she deserves. Not the mediocre life that you could barely give to him/her. Just think about whats best for your baby and also whats best for you. You need to get through school so that one day when you have another chance to bring a beautiful baby into this world (when your grown, and more capable).. you will have the type of job that can pay to take care fo a baby. And it will make your baby proud to have you as a mother. they cant make u give up ur baby in any way its totally ur decision dont let them trick u and tell u different

Everyone can make their own decisions. Whether they are allowed to act on them is another story. Having a baby does not automatically make the girl and adult. It does give her certain rights to look after the child and make sure she and the child are safe. It does not relieve her parents of their responsibility to take care of her.

Can the parents of a teenage pregnant daughter make the mother give up her baby or make her abort or do the young mothers have their own voice for their babies?

They cannot make you do anything. You have all the say and you can choose to keep or give the baby up for adoption. Since you are still very young, you should consider giving the baby away to a family who will love it and support it. Abortion shouldn't even be a thought, it would be irresponsible and there are many physical and mental problems that will come later because of it. Parents are trying to do what is best for the teenager, but the teenager has rights and can choose. Pick your councel wisely. It isn't easy to give a child away, but it is rewarding to the couple you choose. Plus, you can make it an open adoption so you will have some contact over the years. No one can make a mother give up her baby even if the mother is not an adult. And you shouldn't let anyone tell you not to place a baby for adoption or not to have an abortion. Those kind of people are not taking the responsibility for you or your situation so it is none of their business.
