Best answer: This isn't just going to go away, and it's critical now that you contact his parents and talk this over. The most you can do is to tell them you will be there to support them and her, whatever she decides.
It is important to realize that for now, he is on track to be the father of a child. The girl has the decision to make- not you, and not her parents, although her parents will most likely be involved in guiding her towards that decision. But no one can force her to terminate the pregnancy, and her parents may well be encourage her to keep it. Whatever she decides, that is what will determine whether or not you end up with a grandchild. It is out of your hands, and your son and you will need to face up to that reality.
Unless and until there is a baby born, you and your son have no legal responsibilities, but once there is a child, he- and therefore you, since he is as yet a minor - will be assigned child support, if the child is not put up for adoption. Once he is 18, he would be responsible for child support, until the child is at least 18. This isn't negotiable, nor can you wish it away.
As a parent of a kid who most certainly was of age, you should have been watching to make sure he already had condoms and knew what the risks were. Even then, things can happen, since teens are good at some things and not so proficient at others. But now you're into it. Time to catch up.
The best thing to do is to contact the other parents and let them know you know, and are there to be of help no matter what, and hope they do what is right for their child, rather than react badly and shut her out. She needs health care now- no matter what she decides to do.
What will be most helpful now is for you to teach your son respect, let him know that the decision is now hers, since it is her body, and whatever she decides, that is his future. They are still good kids, and it's important that you not utter another word of how you don't want him to be a father. These posts and that kind of language sticks around, until children grow up, and find they were not wanted. No child deserves that. Tech him to stand by her now, and to follow through with whatever happens. They ARE together now, until they aren't. They may end up being co-parents and you may be attached to this other family forever, so start there. because children are children, no matter where they came from.
