CLINIC: Planned Parenthood of Prescott. This is Louise.

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering, do you guys do abortions there?

CLINIC: No, we don’t, but I can give you the phone number to call.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: It’s in our Phoenix clinic, and the area code is 602. And the phone number is 277-1168.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right?

CALLER: Well, do you know — like I’m just worried about all this because like — well I’ll be 14 next month.

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: And my friend told me that they would have to tell my parents.

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: There is no statute on the books right now where you have to be a certain age.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Okay. Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test to see if I was pregnant?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: I just am worried because I haven’t had my period since December 26.

CLINIC: Yeah. You can drop in. Um-hum.

CALLER: Okay. Well, how much does that cost?

CLINIC: It’s $10, but if you’re 14 you don’t have to pay.

CALLER: Oh. Well, my boyfriend said that he would pay for everything.

CLINIC: Well, if he wants to pay $10, he can.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, it’s just — we were talking about all this, and we decided we don’t want a whole bunch of people to know about us. Would he have to sign anything if he was paying?

CLINIC: No, but that’s not the point. Just come in and have your pregnancy test. You don’t have to pay for it.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, if it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant –

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: — could I get birth control that day?

CLINIC: Yes. I mean, we could set you up with birth control, sure.

CALLER: Well, how long would it take?

CLINIC: An hour.

CALLER: Oh, really?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if I was on birth control would you guys have to tell anybody about that?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay. I’m just worried. I just, I don’t want anybody to find out. So.

CLINIC: Let’s do one thing at a time. We’ll first do the pregnancy test, see what happens, and then we’ll go from there.

CALLER: Okay. Well, are you guys open tomorrow?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Now, there’s no practitioner here tomorrow, so we could just do a pregnancy test tomorrow.

CALLER: Oh. Well, what time are you open tomorrow?

CLINIC: At 9:30.

CALLER: 9:30? Well, when do you close?

CLINIC: We’ll be here until 4:30.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, so, so if I came tomorrow and I did the pregnancy test would I be able to get birth control if it came out that I wasn’t pregnant, or –

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: We’d just schedule an appointment for you then.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, how long would it be before I could get an appointment then?

CLINIC: Probably a week or two.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: All right?

CALLER: All right. Okay. So if I — well the only thing is like, I can’t drive yet. But would my boyfriend be able to pick up like the birth control pills?

CLINIC: Let’s first take care of the pregnancy test.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: And then we’ll go from there.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Great.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if I thought of any questions could I call and ask for you?

CLINIC: No. I suggest you come in tomorrow.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: You can ask your questions tomorrow.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right.

CALLER: Well, should I talk to you?

CLINIC: It’s not important that you talk to me. You can talk to anyone who’s here.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Bye bye.

CALLER: Bye.
