She does not care if pregnant. She is in love and wants to be a family with him. She does not care about birth control. they have been dating for only 3 month. She is not interested in using birth control. What is wrong with her?

What is wrong w/ her? Apparently you haven't scared the snot out of her enough about the realities of unprotected sex. lol A baby is NOT the worst possible consequence of unprotected sex... she needs to be made fully aware that her actions could cost her her life... literally. Have her do some research about all the different STDs out there and also about how much it costs to raise a child for 18 years and ask her how she plans to do that when her and her boyfriend are both still in high school. Do they have jobs that can fully support themselves? If not... they have no business even having sex. At this point and w/ her attitude I would do everything in my power to eliminate all of her unsupervised time w/ this and any other boy.

And yes... I know at 16 she is going to do what she is going to do, but I sure as heck would not make it easy for her. Good luck!

Apparently, somewhere, a ball was dropped. The ball that instilled the realities of teen sex and pregnancy. She's 16. It's not up to HER to care about birth control, it is up to her parents to get her on a method that she doesn't have to do every day. Shots, depo, IUD...many different methods that don't require daily maintenance.
At this point, make her live the baby life. Plenty of places have the course now. They take home a doll that reacts as a real baby and have to learn how to parent. If that doesn't scare some sense into her, make sure she's on BC. Whether she wants to be or not.

She doesn't understand about life.
Hopefully she's not pregnant, but either way, she needs to be shown how hard it is. Maybe take her to a shelter that has unwed/teen mothers that can talk to her, let her know how hard it is, and tell her that she can't count on this boy to step up to his responsibility.
