They can't force her to give the baby up. By all means, they can choose not to support her decision but asking her to leave the house, or by not providing any financial support for her, but they have no right to make her give up her baby. Your son and his girlfriend, despite being minors, are the only ones who can make the choices here.

I would be telling the other Grandmother to keep out of it. If the parents want to raise their baby they can.
