I am currently 13 n have a 17 yr old boyfriend n he wants to have a baby with me but I am scared to because I do not want him to go to jail if it is illegal.
Very bad idea. You are too young. You cannot legally consent to sexual intercourse. Your boyfriend needs to respect that, and recognize that he could potentially face jail/sex offender registration. If he does not, then he's not much of a boyfriend.
The response I have provided is general in nature, and does not create an attorney-client relationship. My practice is based in Rhode Island, and the law and practice in other states or jurisdictions may be different.
Yes, he can get you pregnant if you are capable of having monthly periods. He also can go to prison if he does get you pregnant. And if your family allows this, they might be sent to prison too.

Is this a legal question or a biology question?
Biologically, the answer is yes. Who is going to support this baby?
