I'm not trying to fix anything.
I'm saying the teenager (we'll call her Sally) should have some outlets to protect herself from unwanted pregnancy if her parents are unwilling to help her do it or forbid her from doing it.
I'd rather Sally be able to get birth control without her parents consent than not. By extension, I"d rather her be able to get emergency contraception, too.
We all know that saying Sally should just not have sex is a foolish and unrealistic.
