Mature enough for what?

This makes me feel a bit queasy.

I mean, really. What the heck? They say she's not "mature" enough to make her own choice about abortions, but she's mature enough to have a baby at 13? Baffling. I could understand if the situation was as in less developed countries where the methods aren't developed enough to be considered safe, but this is in the US. I admit that people's bodies develop at different rates, but is a 13-year old girl really obligated to give birth just because she got pregnant?
