Requires a court to order a person convicted of statutory rape resulting in a pregnancy to pay restitution to the victim for any reasonable and necessary expenses relating to the pregnancy and childbirth. Specifies that the lack of a prosecution or conviction for statutory rape does not bar a person from initiating a paternity action and seeking child support and payment for expenses relating to the pregnancy and childbirth. Provides that consent to an adoption is not required from a biological father of a child born out of wedlock who: (1) was conceived as the result of a statutory rape; and (2) is the subject of an adoption.
