CLINIC: (unclear) Woman’s Clinic. This is Karen.

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling to see if you guys do abortions there.

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know how much it costs for that?

CLINIC: There’s two visit. The first visit is $50 cash. The second is if you’re 10 weeks or less it’s $400 to $460, depending upon your blood type.

CALLER: Okay. How do you know how many weeks you are?

CLINIC: At your first visit they’re going to give you an ultrasound.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, okay. It’s just the main reason why I’m worried is because like, well I’m going to be 14 later on this month and my friend said you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: No? What do you mean?

CLINIC: You’re responsible for yourself.

CALLER: Okay. So you don’t have to tell my parents or anybody?

CLINIC: All I can do is tell you we’re not going to check your ID when you come in.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So when you fill out your application, your information forms, you can just put a different date.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right. Well, my boyfriend said that he would pay cash for everything, but is that all right –

CLINIC: It has to be cash.

CALLER: Okay. Well, is it all right if he’s there with me?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: It’s just, we don’t want a whole bunch of people to — we don’t want anyone to know about us, so like would he have to sign any papers or anything?

CLINIC: No. He won’t, no.

CALLER: Okay. All aright. Well, so — well if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: Yeah?

CLINIC: Did you take a pregnancy test?

CALLER: Well, no. I just haven’t had my period since like January 3, and I’m — we’re both just really scared.

CLINIC: Okay. I think you should probably go have a pregnancy test, either go buy one at the store.

CALLER: Are those usually right though?

CLINIC: Yeah. They’re pretty accurate.

CALLER: Oh. Well, do you guys do one there that’s better?

CLINIC: It’s probably not any better, no. It’s $20 cash if you want to come in and do it here.

CALLER: Okay. I would just probably feel better if you guys did it, so. Would I do that on the first visit that I was there or –

CLINIC: No. You need to come and do that beforehand.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: When do you guys normally do pregnancy tests then?

CLINIC: You can just come into the office.

CALLER: Okay. What are your normal hours?

CLINIC: For that it would be between 9 and 11 and 2 and 4.

CALLER: Okay. Today?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Do you ever have hours on Saturday?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay. So it’s just Monday through Friday?

CLINIC: Yes. Not Tuesday afternoon and not Friday afternoon.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, let me call my boyfriend and see when he can bring me but if I had — if I was on birth control would you guys have to tell anybody though?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay. All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right. Okay. Thanks.

CLINIC: Um-hum.

(dialing sounds) (ringing 2X)

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. This is Amanda.

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

CLINIC: We sure don’t. We refer everyone to the Fayetteville Women’s Clinic.

CALLER: Oh. Well, do you have that number?

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Let me get it real fast. It is 442-8166.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — like I’m just really worried because like, well I’m going to be 14 in March. And my friend told me 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: I’m not really sure. You would have to ask them since they, they deal more with it. But I do know that you have to have a guardian kinship.

CALLER: Oh, really?

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: Do you know if there’s any way not to have to tell them? Because I don’t — they can’t find out at all. I mean, if they –

CLINIC: I’m not really sure. I would call the Fayetteville Women’s Clinic and ask them because they — you know, like I said, they deal with it more.

CALLER: All right. Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test? I mean, I’m just really worried about all this because I haven’t had my period since like December 21st, and I’m scared.

CLINIC: Yeah. We do pregnancy tests. They’re $15.

CALLER: But would you guys have to tell anybody about that though?

CLINIC: No. No. Whenever you come in here, and you don’t have to have parental consent or anything like that.

CALLER: Well, do you know, like my boyfriend would be the only way I could get there. Could he be in there with me?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: Okay. I would just feel better if he was there actually.

CLINIC: Yeah. And you would just need to make an appointment, and we could get you in.

CALLER: Okay. But he was actually wondering if you guys would have to know anything about him. He’s just –

CLINIC: No. We don’t — no. You’re the only — you have to fill out one short page of paperwork.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: We don’t ask anything about him.

CALLER: Well, he said he was going to pay for everything. Would he have to sign anything?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: No, it’s just $15, you know. That’s it. We don’t ask him anything.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: But would you have to tell anybody that I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Everything that you do here is confidential. The only way we tell anyone is if you ask us to.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know if it would be all right if — like I can’t drive. Would it be all right if my boyfriend picked up the birth control pills?

CLINIC: You actually have to be an established patient here.

CALLER: Okay. What would I do for that?

CLINIC: We have two ways that you can do it. We do recommend that you have an exam done. And that entails a breast exam, a Pap smear, that kind of thing. The cost of that runs anywhere between $60 and $100. It’s based on your monthly income.

CALLER: But I don’t have a job.

CLINIC: Right. So, and you’re a student. You are a student, right?

CALLER: Well, I’m homeschooled. Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. It would be $58.50.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: For an exam and a pack of pills. Then, you know, if you can’t get the money right away, what we do is call the HOPE program. You fill out some paperwork. There’s a $23 charge, and you talk with the nurse practitioner and she does a prescription for several months of birth control, and then she does ask that you have your exam.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: And as long as you can prove that you are a student, you know, with some kind of grades or something, we do give you a 25 percent off discount.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: So your pills would be $11.25 each month.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? And for everything that, you know, you would need to set up an appointment to come in.

CALLER: Okay. Well, is it — do you know if there’s any way I could buy like a lot of pills at once and not have to come in all the time?

CLINIC: For the first few months we do ask that you get just one pack since — you’ve never taken pills. Is that correct?

CALLER: Right.

CLINIC: Yeah. You would need to get just one pack at a time for three months, just to make sure that you’re going to be okay on the pills. And then after that you can buy two to three packs of pills each time you come in as long as you have, you know, the pills left.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, does anybody have to know that I’m on birth control though?

CLINIC: No. No. As long — you know, you come in here, it’s confidential.

CALLER: It’s just me and my boyfriend don’t want to have worry about all this again, so.

CLINIC: Yeah. Yeah. No. Once you — I mean, I can’t even tell anybody that you called me. I don’t know your name or anything. And we go by patient numbers. We don’t go by your name.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: You do have to put your name on the paperwork, but as far as signing your chart and everything, it’s by numbers and not your last name.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay. All right.

CLINIC: So if you need to set up an appointment, just let us know.

CALLER: Okay. Let me call him and call you back. Your name was Amanda, right?

CLINIC: Right. Okay?

CALLER: Thanks.
