I am a pregnant minor. I have already decided that I’m keeping the baby. Under my states law, there’s no law that says a parent has to provide for their grandchild even if their child is a minor. The thing is, I don’t can’t work, go to school, and take care of a baby at the same time. I would just fail all my classes and not graduate. My boyfriend is a full time student so he can only work weekends while I stay home with the baby. His income is not enough. I really need my parents financial support until I graduate. There’s no way in hell I can manage to hold down a job in the middle of all this. When I told them I’m keeping the baby, my parents told me to start looking for a job before I start to show because then, employers wouldn’t hire me. Like I said before, it’s too hard for me to work while staying at home with the baby and going to school.
