Healthcare is not a moral issue, otherwise you'd still be treated with trepanation and mercury.
Unless your goal is to specifically follow one religious teaching, you should approach the issue by setting sensible goals - avoiding teen pregnancy is one of them, because if the mother is not yet fully grown (even after a girl had reached her adult height her hips will continue to develop) the birth will be associated with a higher risk.
Outcomes like the rates if STDs are measurable. Same goes for education attained for young mothers as well as for children of young mothers.
If you make it a moral issue, the outcome will be unfavourable.
