Teen's Privacy

I was just watching a news report about a bill that could restrict teenager's medical privacy in favor of the parents' "right to know." They interviewed a doctor who has her qualms about it, but totally re-framed what she said to mean something different. After quoting her about her hesitations, they said, "But she does agree parents have the right to know" and then show her saying "I understand how parents would want to know." Woah, understanding their desire and saying that desire should override the teenager's desire are two totally different things. But anyway, my question is - at what age do you think someone should have the right to privacy over their own medical records?

And on a totally different note, when sleeping together with someone (as in actually sleeping) are you a snuggler or do you need your space?
