CLINIC: If you came, if you paid cash you can give any age you want.

CALLER: Okay. And then that way you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: Exactly.

CALLER: Okay. All right. Well, would you guys like do a pregnancy test beforehand or — it’s just I haven’t taken one yet.

CLINIC: Okay, when you come in for services here all our services are confidential. We wouldn’t need to include your parents or your boyfriend.

CALLER: Okay. It’s just my boyfriend — we were all talking about this and he said that he would pay for everything, but would he have to –

CALLER: Okay. How much is it going to cost?

CLINIC: It runs anywhere from $350 to $475.

CALLER: Okay. It’s just, the thing is I haven’t had my period since like December 26, and that’s the main reason why I’m wondering about all this.

CLINIC: Okay. Well, you can come in for a pregnancy test on Tuesday between 4 and 6 and they’ll explain, they’ll do a pregnancy test and then explain your options and if you decide to terminate they’ll explain the procedure to you.

CALLER: Okay. So if the pregnancy test came out that I wasn’t pregnant I could get birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes, you can.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: But not on that time slot. Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So why don’t you come in between 4 and 6, and then if everything’s good then we can make you an appointment for that same week to come in for birth control.

CALLER: Okay. But would anyone have to know if I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: All information is confidential. The only way they would know is if they went through your stuff. They call us, we can’t say anything.

CALLER: Okay. You want me to come in at 4?

CLINIC: It’s best if you come in at 4.

CALLER: Okay. I have to call my boyfriend to see, but is it all right if he comes with me?

CLINIC: That’s fine.

CALLER: Okay. I wouldn’t have any other way to get there. All right. Thank you.

CLINIC: All right then. Bye bye.
