Please take a look at the thread here: Pregnant minors and emancipation and here: Pregnant Mother Emancipation in USA? - post #8

As for who's is emancipated: FA 2011 p. 57 -> Consent for minors:
"...unless minor is emancipated (eg. is married, is self-suporting, has children or is in military)." - so the list of things that make you emancipated is limited (at least for the exam itself )
"Parental consent is not required in (...) medical care during pregnancy (...)." - But that doesn't mean that the pregnant minor is emancipated, bc for example if a minor wants to have an abortion in some states parental consent is required. And bc on USMLE we won't be asked about things that are different in terms of law in different states, we should treat a pregnant minor as a non-emancipated.
Of course if a pregnant minor is in military/married she will be considered emancipated but not bc of pregnancy.

I can't remember where exactly they talked about it in Kaplan, but I'm sure they did - Dr. D wouldn't omit such an important issue
