What if she were even younger? What if she were older?

At what age, if any, is this a decision that should be made by the parents rather than by the pregnant girl?
This is a toughie. While I disagree with abortion, this is a tough decision. If it she isn't in any danger by being pregnant, I would let her carry and if she wanted to keep it, I agree with a pp by raising the baby and trying to get her to help until she turns a certain age to be able to take the responsibility on. Or if she doesn't think she could handle it wants to give her or him up for adoption, I'd support her in that decision. Now if she wanted to have an abortion... I just don't know what I'd do.

ETA: My best friend had a baby at that age, we were both going to the same school... it can be done and I know she was healthy enough to do it. I'm not certain about all girls though.
