Let's say a 16 year old girl manages to speak to her doctor in private during a regular appointment and requests birth control. She is afraid her parents would respond poorly to knowing she is considering sexual intercourse, and so requests the doctor make up some other excuse for prescribing the medicine, such as to regulate or manage her periods.
I assume the doctor has the right to decline to make up an excuse for the prescription, and in absence of doctor being willing to justify it a minor may not request the prescription since their parents may guess on the reason for it.
Aside from that though I'm more wondering can the doctor inform her parents of her request, and that she is considering sexual activity? Legally does she have a legal right to demand her request be kept private from her legal guardians?
Assume the minor is living with her parents and hasn't been emancipated.
