CLINIC: Family Planning Associates. This is Mary. May I help you?

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

CLINIC: We do.

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

CLINIC: We do them up to three months, and that’s $350.

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

CLINIC: You have an exam when you come in.

CALLER: Okay. I just haven’t had my period since like January 3, and I’m just really worried, so.

CLINIC: Have you had a pregnancy test done?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Okay. You can do that first.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay, we do free testing here. You don’t need an appointment. You can come in any time between 8:00 and 4:30.

CALLER: Today?

CLINIC: Any day.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And if it’s positive then we’ll go ahead and schedule that appointment for you.

CALLER: Okay. I was just really wondering like my main question is, well I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend told me 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, he doesn’t sign anything. You would sign your own forms when you come in.

CALLER: Oh. So you wouldn’t have to tell anybody then?

CLINIC: No. We don’t release any information on any of our patients that comes in.

CALLER: Oh, all right. Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control from you guys?

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: Really? How much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: You would have to have a pap smear, which is — and that’s $80. And then we would give you the first three months supplies of pills with that.

CALLER: Okay. The thing is, I’m going to be — well me and my boyfriend were talking about all this, and my boyfriend and I decided we don’t want anyone to know about us. But he said he was going to pay for everything, so does he have to sign anything though?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: If he was paying for it all?

CLINIC: No, he doesn’t.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: He doesn’t have to sign anything.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All righty.

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: You’re welcome.

CALLER: Bye.

CLINIC: Bye.

(dialing sound) (ringing 2X)

CLINIC: Good morning. Surgical Center. Sophia speaking. How can I help you?

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

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

CLINIC: Depending on how far along you are. Do you know the first day of your last normal period?

CALLER: My last period was January 3.

CLINIC: Looks like you would be approximately about 8 weeks today. So the cost for that would be $600.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: If you’re less than 10 weeks the procedure is $600. If you’re over 10 weeks then it just depends on how far along you are in your pregnancy.

CALLER: Okay. I was just wondering — it’s just 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. Could he just take care of it and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: You’re 13 and he’s 21?

CALLER: He’s 22.

CLINIC: 22? Okay, well, legally in California that’s considered statutory rape.

CALLER: What do you mean? I mean, he’s not raping me or anything.

CLINIC: I understand –

CALLER: We’re in love. We’re going to get married.

CLINIC: I understand that, but you know, the legal laws in California would consider that, even though if it is consensual.

CALLER: Well, what would happen?

CLINIC: That I’m not quite sure. You know, we wouldn’t — would probably have to do something with the police.

CALLER: The police?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Well, would they have to tell my parents?

CLINIC: Well, if they’re going to investigate this and then they might have to, you know, discuss it with your family members.

CALLER: Well, they can’t — well, what can I do?

CLINIC: Let me have you call the National Abortion Federation.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: That’s 1-800-772-9100.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? And you can tell them your situation and they can give you some resources.

CALLER: Oh. Well, could i come in there for a pregnancy test just to make sure I am pregnant?

CLINIC: Sure. Hold on just a second, okay?

CALLER: All right.

(classical music)

CLINIC: Hello?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Okay. We can go ahead and see you for the pregnancy test, but if it does come out positive then we are going to have to file a report.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, if it came out negative could I get birth control?

CLINIC: No. We would have to have a pap smear on file.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So that you have a normal pap smear because we’re not allowed to give any sort of sample unless we have an okay pap smear on your record.

CALLER: Well, if I wasn’t pregnant could I get that?

CLINIC: Could you get a birth control pill? No, because if we don’t have –

CALLER: Could I get like a pap smear thing?

CLINIC: We don’t do pap smears here. You would have to get that with your regular doctor.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: But if I had that would you guys be able to do birth control?

CLINIC: Your pap smear on file?

CALLER: Right.

CLINIC: Right, but we don’t do that unless we see you for the termination. We don’t just hand it out. You know, that’s something you would want to go through Planned Parenthood or something like that.

CALLER: Planned Parenthood?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Okay. But would they have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: It really depends on what you decide to tell them, how much you let them know.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, if I didn’t tell you about my boyfriend would I be able to get the abortion?

CLINIC: I know from right now if you were to give me too much information I wouldn’t be able to answer that. That’s — you know, if you want to have that done you would want to be a little bit more discreet about the information you give. But if they find out you’re not legal age then they will have to file a report to the state.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: So even if my boyfriend wasn’t 22?

CLINIC: Even if he wasn’t — if you’re under 14 it is considered rape in the state of California.

CALLER: Okay. All right. So all aright. If I had any other questions could I call and talk to you? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Sophia.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: But I recommend you call that number. They have a lot of great resources for any information you need.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: The number for the National Abortion Federation? They know?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right. Anything else I can help you with?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Okay, then.

CALLER: Okay. Thank you.

CLINIC: You’re welcome. Bye bye.

CALLER: Bye.
