Is there parental responsibility if a son gets someone pregnant?

If your son who is 16 get someone pregnant, do the parents have to take care of the baby ?

Answer #1

Dear nanncolo2007, In Canada they would be responsible till their son reaches 19 or until their son is no longer living in their home. Sue

Answer #2

in my opinion, i think that the teen will have to take care of the baby. only if the parents want to do it without any regret they can do it.

Answer #3

NO…but i would think as a parent you would be there for the both of them and help them..

Answer #4

No, the parents do not HAVE to take care of the baby….probably the best answer for the baby is adoption to a loving/stable home.
