s/o--consent for abortion?

What states, if any, require parent consent for a girl to get an abortion?  Anyone know?

 And what's acceptable as evidence of parental relationship?  For example, I never took DH's name.  So my driver's license isn't going to prove that I'm DD's mother.  What If I did take his name but later lost legal custody of DD?

hypothetical here...DD is 2 and 1/2!!

I think that's wrong. If I can't make them abort I shouldn;t be able to stop them.

A birth certificate will prove maternity.

And I know Oklahoma requires parental permission.

Idk. This is anecdote so it may not count, but I live in Kentucky. In 2008 I had a friend (she was either 16 or 17 at the time, it was her senior year in high school) who had to get an abortion due to medical concerns but she didn't want her parents involved; somehow (I'm not clear on the details) her boyfriend's mom and her were able to go to court and get a declaration that she could use her bf's mom's consent in lieu of her own parents' consent.
