    Default Re: HELP - Anyone know Ohio Law on teen pregnancy

    You heard wrong.

    Pregnancy does not bestow the rights and responsibilities upon a minor, other than medical emancipation as it pertains to her health care and the baby's.

    When she is 18, she can go where she wants. Until then, her grandparents have the final say.
