I'm 17 and i live in Ohio too. My mom wants me to have an abortion, and like you, i'm against it. the law in ohio is that NO ONE can force you to have an abortion.....the father, or your parents. If you need anyone to talk to then send me an email or anything.

You need to talk to a lawyer specializing in family law in Ohio.

Just from what I found googling Ohion state laws, the age of medical consent is 18. That means until you are 18 you do not have rights over your body, which means, yes, she can force you into an abortion. I could be wrong, but I found like five different websites stating that. If you do not have medical majority in your state, your mom can make you do anything and doctors and nurses cannot oppose her. They can refuse to do it, but that's it.

Hey there hunny!! I can so relate to you, i was 14 when i had my daughter, my family was not very supportive either and i honestly think that they didnt accept that i was having a baby until she was born, so it might take your family a long time, its hard for moms to get the idea around their 14 year old having a baby, to her your always going to be her baby (even if you dont think so) and you will understand that once you have a baby too, i know i would be so upset if my daughter got pregnant young, because i want so much more for her, even though i am so proud of myself and i love my life and you certainly can make something great of your life even if you have a child young (so i dont want you to take this a negative thing, you will make it and you will do great things and achieve everything you want to and never forget that)

anyways its so awesome that your bf;s family is supportive, my bf was also very supportive when i told him i was pregnant (both times actually but things changed - which a totally different novel) its really important that your surround yourself with people who love, care and support you, because your an amazing person and you dont deserve to have all the negative stress put on you, and people who are being negative dont deserve your time.

As for your mom wanting you to get an abortion, she can want it all she wants but in most states (and provinces) though im not familiar with the laws in your state, your mother cannot force you to have an abortion, though personally i am against abortion (for me) i firmly believe that its is YOUR body and YOUR choice and if you want to continue with this pregnancy then no one can tell you otherwise.

Good luck with your choice, its very difficult and i wish you the best of luck in what ever you end up deciding

Much Love

The dilemma in your situation is this. To be treated like a child can mean the decision will be made for you. To be treated like an adult means if you want to make your own decision, you'll have to therefore live with the consequences by taking care of your own baby, your own needs, bills, etc. In some cases (not all), you can't have it both ways. If you're old enough to have sex and get pregnant (and make the decision to keep the baby), you're old enough, or should be, to take care of yourself. You're stuck between two worlds of being a kid or a grownup.

You're mom can't technically kick you out at your age, but she can make your life hell if you decide to keep this baby. Other than that, you may just have to rely on the father's family since they're supportive. The only other option if you can't live with either of those is to give birth and place the baby for adoption. You say you don't want your baby to suffer an abortion because of your mistake. Adoption is the third option that may resolve your not wanting abortion versus your mom not wanting you to keep a child at your age. It's a really tough situation you've got yourself in. I wish you the best and lots of support no matter your decision.
