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.
Yes, that's exactly what you're trying to do. You're trying to substitute your judgment for that of Sally's parents and fix what you perceive as a problem because her parents apparently don't perceive it that way. Another way to put this is that you're trying to impose your morality on Sally's family.
