CLINIC: Do what now?
CALLER: Abortions? Do you do them there?
CLINIC: Let me give you the number. 602-277-1168.
CALLER: Well, where is that exactly?
CLINIC: (Seventh Street and Caliback?)
CALLER: Oh. Well, I’m just worried because like my friend told me — well I’ll be 14 next month, and my friend said that they would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: Yeah. Just some — yeah. Some, whatever. Or, he’s your guardian or something.
CALLER: Okay. Well, can I come in there for a pregnancy test just to see if I am pregnant? I’m just worried because I haven’t had my period since like December 26.
CLINIC: December 26? Yeah, you can come in and take a pregnancy test.
CLINIC: We do them from 3:00 to 5:00.
CALLER: Today or –
CALLER: — just every day?
CLINIC: Today. Oh, every day but in the mornings, nine and noon. Tuesdays from 9:00 to noon and that’s it on Tuesday.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, I’d have to call him to see, but how much does it cost?
CLINIC: They start off at $400.
CALLER: The pregnancy test?
CLINIC: Oh, no, no, the abortion. The pregnancy tests are $10.
CALLER: Oh, okay. I was like what? But do you know if it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?
CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody I was on birth control?
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, the thing is, I can’t drive. Would my boyfriend be able to pick up the pills?
CLINIC: Just as long as you give him a note saying it’s okay for him to pick them up.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Okay. Well, what time could I come in tomorrow?
CLINIC: For a pregnancy test? Nine to noon and 2:00 to 4:00.
CALLER: Okay. Well, how long does it normally take?
CLINIC: It depends the people that are here.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, like on an average?
CLINIC: About 15 minutes.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, could I get birth control right away if it came out that I wasn’t pregnant?
CLINIC: You’d have to set up an appointment.
CALLER: Well, how long does it take for that?
CLINIC: Right now we’re booking to the ending of March.
CALLER: Oh, all right. Okay. Well, if I had any other questions could I calla nd talk to you? What was your name?
CLINIC: My name is Maria.
CALLER: Oh. All right. Okay.
CALLER: All right. Thanks.
