Can a pregnant teen receive Communion?

Could a 15-year-old still recieve Communion when she is pregnant and unwed? She is willing to go to confession but is not sure she can still receive the Eucharist since she is pregnant.

Any Catholic who has confessed his or her mortal sins and been absolved in sacramental confession is welcome to receive the Eucharist. Being unwed and pregnant does not, in and of itself, exclude a woman from Communion.
