Is her mom allowed to do that?

I have a friend that's mom told her if she got pregnant she couldnt keep the baby,does her mom have the legal right to make that decision for her?

If your friend is underage her mom is saying she isn't going to be responsible for raising your friend's child.

If she is under 18 she has the right. She is considered a minor and her parents are responsible for her.

But at 16 you cant make your child come home if they runaway to a friends house & that parent is willing to let them stay there for the time being.

If the runaway's parents go to the police dept. the police will escort them to the runaway's location and they CAN make her leave with parents because at 16 she is still a minor.

it depends how old your fiend is. if shes 16 or older then i don't think so but i could be wrong. if shes under 16 then her mom more likely has the right to do that. (again i could be wrong)

yes. as long as your friend is a minor, her legal guardian has the right to do whatever she wants. as soon as your friend turns 18, though, her mom has no legal right to say that if she got pregnant she would have to give up the baby.
i'd stay out of it, though, because it doesn't really concern you.

I'll say this again, getting pregnant does not make you an adult!
If she's underage, her Mom has every right to tell her what to do!!

My mom says if I get pregnant, she'll kill me. Just because it's illegal, doesn't mean she won't. :P

I believe it varies by state and many states will let a 16 yr old move out and raise their child. If your friend is under 16 I believe her mother can make her give it up.

Her mom can say she will not help in raising the baby, money wise or help wise. but she doesnt not have the legal right to make her get an abortion.
