I am unaware of any Oklahoma statute that purports to require disclosure of teenage pregnancy to parents. However, the Oklahoma reproductive legal landscape is not favorable to women. Doctors tend to act according to their believes. You should have a discussion with your doctor ahead of time and have a clear understanding. This is particularly true if if abortion may be a possibility.
