Of course we do. I'm not going to ask my kids if they want to go to the dentist. I'm the parent, I understand long term consequences, and they need to go to the dentist. End of story. Children cannot and should not make health decisions for themselves. And I can't just put off healthcare decisions until they turn 18. It's my job to keep them safe. It's not just my right - it's my moral and legal obligation to make health decisions for my children.
