Where does Planned Parenthood stand on parental involvement laws?

Planned Parenthood strongly opposes laws requiring parental involvement in minor girls’ abortions, even though such laws are supported by 70% of the American public. Though parental approval is required for a minor girl to get her ears pierced or take an aspirin dispensed by the school nurse, Planned Parenthood insists parents have no right to know if their daughters get abortions.
