Re: Pregnant Teenage Daughter Wants to Give Child Up for Adoption
So let me get this right. You and your husband, both presumably adults and supposedly responsible for the health and welfare of your minor child suspect that your child has been RAPED (a very strong word) and you don't go to the authorities because she (a minor child who knows nothing about life) doesn't want you to?????
Suppose she got hit by a car or shot in the head. If she didn't want you to call the police or an ambulance would you respect her wishes then? Why or why not. The fact that none of you want to call the police means that this was anything BUT rape, but a couple of teenagers that let their hormones take control and now your angel baby has second thoughts about her actions, especially since there is a baby in her belly.
As for him, he has the legal right to contest the adoption and what YOU want is inconsequential since you have no legal rights to the child your daughter is carrying. If he wishes to raise the child, he can do so and sue your daughter for child support.
If you wanted babies all to yourself, you should have created them by yourself. Until you do that, children have the right to BOTH parents, especially since you found them suitable to procreate with.
