    Several things: How old are the girls were talking about? Are they of age in the state? Do we not already recognize that legal guardians should be involved in other medical decisions? Since these girls are under the age of majority (because society recognizes them as too young to make certain decisions), can they legally consent to any medical treatment beyond first aid or emergency care? How does the right to privacy apply when it comes to the underage, especially in light of the aforementioned?

    At first instinct, requiring parental involvement seems perfectly fine. But then again, how many pregnant teens have parents who are involved in their lives in healthy and productive ways?
