The age of consent in Mississippi is 16 years of age. If both parties are over that age, there are no criminal issues. The parents don't have to agree and can still make things difficult.

What is Mississippi's legal age to have a baby?

There is no legal age to have a baby. In Mississippi, or anywhere. Think about it. How could they stop the person from having the baby once the baby was on its way? The government is not going to enforce abortions. The legal Age of Consent in Mississippi--an entirely different matter--is sixteen, which makes good sense. But Age of Consent is fuzzier in Mississippi than it is in many states. To quote the Labor Law blog (as I cannot put it better): "The age different of the partners is a factor in the Mississippi age of consent laws. Young people who are between the ages of 14 and 16 can legally consent to sex with a partner who is no more than 36 months older. Thus, a 15-year-old girl can legally consent to sex with her 17-year-old boyfriend, but not with his 44-year-old father." Also, in Mississippi one must be twenty one years old to marry. An odd group of laws, to my mind, these. And, of course, and as with anything: Before you do, think. Think Hard.
