(dialing sound) (ringing 3X)

CLINIC: Medical Clinic. Can I help you?

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Oh. Do you know how much it costs?

CLINIC: When was the first day of your last period?

CALLER: December 26.

CLINIC: December?

CALLER: Yeah. Like the day after Christmas.

CLINIC: Okay. You would be looking at $320 to be awake with valium or $400 to be asleep.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, do you know, like I’m just kind of worried because like my friend said that since I’m going to be like — I’ll be 14 later on this month, and she said that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever it is and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No, it’s got to be a legal guardian. When are you going to be 14?

CALLER: Like on the 9th.

CLINIC: Of March?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Oh. Well, I would just wait until then.

CALLER: Oh, really?

CLINIC: I could set you up an appointment for after that date.

CALLER: Oh. Well, how much would it cost?

CLINIC: Okay. Well, you need to get in here before you’re 12 weeks, okay? Because that’s when our price changes.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So if you’re going to be 14 on the 9th, any Monday or Thursday actually after the 9th, either on or after the 9th because our doctors are only here on Monday and Thursday.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: So I just need to tell my boyfriend how much it will cost then because he said he would pay for everything. How much would it cost then?

CLINIC: If you get in here before the 20th of March then you’re looking at the fees that I told you.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: $320 to be awake and $400 to be asleep.

CALLER: So if I do it after my birthday you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No, we wouldn’t.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, it’s just my boyfriend would have to bring me. Would that be all right if he was there with me?

CLINIC: Well, we don’t let anybody go in the back with you. We have other patients back there. But I mean, he can wait in the waiting area.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: But he was going to pay for everything. Would he have to sign anything?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: No, not at all.

CALLER: It’s just we don’t want a whole bunch of people to know about us, so.

CLINIC: Yeah. No. Just tell him it’s cash only, no personal checks.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Or we take Visa or Mastercharge.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, is — do you guys do pregnancy tests there just to make sure?

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Yeah. We repeat the pregnancy test when you come in, and you’ll also have an exam by the doctor.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

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

CLINIC: Well, we’re not really a birth control clinic. There’s a clinic here in Stockton called Delta Healthcare, and we send a lot of patients there for the birth control method.

CALLER: Well, would they have to tell anybody if I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: No. No. Not after you turn 14, no.

CALLER: Oh. Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: So basically just wait until I’m 14 and –

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: And that will be good?

CLINIC: Yeah. But go ahead and let him know what the prices are, and like I said we can set the appointment up ahead of time because you don’t want to wait until you’re 12 weeks because then it will be more expensive.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, are you going to be open tomorrow?

CLINIC: No. We’re closed on the weekend, hon.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: We’ll be open Monday morning at 9:00.

CALLER: Okay. So I need to call and get an appointment with you?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: Well, what was your name?

CLINIC: Cathy.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Bye.

CALLER: Bye.

CALLER: Everything?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if — the thing is, if I was on birth control, I don’t have a — I’m not old enough to drive. Would I be able to send my boyfriend to pick up the pills?

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CALLER: That would be probably be better.

CLINIC: Okay. Do you prefer for me to make, just to make the appointment then?
