(Dialing, phone ringing 1x)

CLINIC: North (in) Health.

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: It depends how far along you are and your blood type.

CALLER: Okay. Well, how do you know how far along you are?

CLINIC: Well, when was your last period?

CALLER: January 3rd.

CLINIC: January what?

CALLER: 3rd.

CLINIC: Okay. One moment.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Was it normal?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. You did a pregnancy test, right?

CALLER: Well, not yet.

CLINIC: You haven’t?

CALLER: No. I just haven’t had my period in a while, and I’m just scared.

CLINIC: So you didn’t have it February nor March?

CALLER: Right.

CLINIC: I would do a pregnancy test first.

CALLER: Could I come in there for that?

CLINIC: You can’t (unclear). I have no one to run it. I can put it in the refrigerator and call back in the morning. They’ve just left. We can do that, and they are free. I would have to have you call back in the morning if you did that.

CALLER: Well, could I just come in tomorrow then?

CLINIC: Tomorrow you can come in 9 to 4 to do that. Have you been under a lot of stress or anything or a different atmosphere.

CALLER: I’m not really sure. The thing is, I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend 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 I was getting an abortion?

CLINIC: Well, right now, they went to court on Monday about that. Our administrator has not told us a word about it. Evidently, I’m not sure that that law went through yet. She hasn’t told us that you do need consent. Right now you do not need a parent’s consent.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And she will be here tomorrow also. But she would have told us right away if it was into effect, and she hasn’t told us anything. So I’m sure it’s not in effect yet. Sometimes it takes like 15 days or something like that. So you look like you’re fine.

But first of all, you do need to start with a pregnancy test, and then we can go from there. And it would be $305 to $340 for that, depending on your blood type. But at first start with a pregnancy test, because a lot of things keep you from having your period. Are you on the pill or anything?

CALLER: No. Like I was wondering, we were wanting to get that if I wasn’t pregnant or afterwards.

CLINIC: That’s fine. We do do (unclear) and give out birth control and things like that. So what you can do, if you want to come in in the morning, they are free. Just walk in before 4, and they’d be happy to do a pregnancy test on you. And then we’ll go from there.

CALLER: The thing is, me and my boyfriend were talking about all this, and he said he would pay cash for everything. But he was just worried that he would have to — we don’t want anyone to know about us.

CLINIC: We don’t tell anybody. We’re very confidential. The thing is — and my director will be here to verify that you don’t need a consent right now. I mean, we had some people come in this weekend, and we have not been told to tell them that they have to have a parental consent. So my thing is that it’s not passed yet. Like I said, sometimes it takes days for that to go through anyway, if it is passed. So apparently it hasn’t gone through yet. And sometimes it takes two and three court dates. So right now it looks as though you don’t need it. But we’ll have more information for you on that tomorrow if you want to come in.

CALLER: So if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, I could get birth control, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: Tomorrow? That one too, no. We don’t have to tell anybody for birth control. That’s for you.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: You guys are open tomorrow from when?

CLINIC: From 9 to 5, but you have to get here before 4:00 for that pregnancy test.

CALLER: Do I need an appointment for that?

CLINIC: No, you don’t. You walk in.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right. Well, of I had any other questions, could I call and talk to you? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name’s Beverly.

CALLER: Okay. All right. Thanks.

CLINIC: I’ll be here tomorrow.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay. Bye.

CLINIC: Thank you for calling Orlando Women’s Center. Princess speaking. How may I help you?

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: How much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: How many week are you?

CALLER: I’m not really sure.

CLINIC: Do you know the first day of your last period?

CALLER: January 3rd.

CLINIC: You’re right now about nine weeks.

CALLER: Nine weeks?

CLINIC: Um-hmm.

CALLER: Okay. So how much would it be then?

CLINIC: 375.

CALLER: All right. The thing is, I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend 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, we don’t tell anybody. There’s no age requirement, sweetie.

CALLER: The thing is, my boyfriend and I were talking about all this, and we decided we don’t want anyone to know about us. But he’s going to pay for everything with cash. Would he have to sign anything or fill out any forms?

CLINIC: He will have to be here if he’s paying. I mean, if he’s paying cash, he can just give you the money. But if you get anesthesia, you’re going to need a driver.

CALLER: Okay. Well, he said that he would be there.

CLINIC: Well, then you’d be fine.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Um-hmm.

CALLER: All right. Do you guys do like a pregnancy test beforehand just to make sure?

CLINIC: Yeah. Did you take a pregnancy test though?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Well, I think you should take an at-home pregnancy test first so you don’t waste your time coming here and spend the whole day here and then told you’re not pregnant.

CALLER: Are those usually right though?

CLINIC: Huh? Yeah, EPT.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So just get an EPT at least to be safe. Because you have to be here four to six hours. It’s like an all-day affair. And then you go through everything, and then get told you’re not even pregnant, that’s a waste of time.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if I wasn’t pregnant, could I come in there for birth control?

CLINIC: We don’t do any pap smears right now, but you might want to call Planned Parenthood. I know they do it.

CALLER: Oh, okay. But would they have to tell anybody if I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: Nope.

CALLER: Oh, okay?

CLINIC: All right.

CALLER: If I had any other questions, could I call and talk to you? What was your name again?

CLINIC: Princess. Okay, sweetie?

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: No problem. Bye.

CLINIC: (Unclear) Medical Services. How may I help you?

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: How much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: How many weeks are you?

CALLER: I’m not really sure. How do you know?

CLINIC: By the first day of your last period.

CALLER: Well, that was January 3rd.

CLINIC: Okay. Hold one second.

CALLER: Okay.

(Short pause)

CLINIC: Okay. At nine-plus weeks the procedure’s $350 if you’re positive blood type. And if you want IV sedation, it’s 425.

CALLER: The thing is, I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend said that 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: You’re how old?

CALLER: I’m going to be 14 on the 19th of this month.

CLINIC: Okay. So you’re going to be 14. So you’re 13 right now?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Most likely, no. In the state of Florida you don’t have to have parent consent. But you’re not going to want him up here, because if he comes up here, the police officers would have to arrest him.

CALLER: Why?

CLINIC: Because you have to show your i.d. When he comes in he has to show his i.d., and you have to show your i.d. to get in. And if they see the age on there, they could arrest him at that point.

CALLER: But I don’t have an i.d.

CLINIC: You’re going to have to get a picture i.d. from the Drivers License Bureau to be able to get into the building.

CALLER: So would it be better if he just dropped me off then?

CLINIC: Yeah, definitely. You don’t want to put him in that situation.

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Now, the thing is, with you only being 13, there’s no guarantee we’ll be able to do the procedure. It will be based upon an examination of your cervix, to make sure that you’re built to where we can do the procedure at this point.

CALLER: Okay. I haven’t had a pregnancy test yet. Could I come in there and do that before?

CLINIC: We don’t offer that here. We no longer offer the free pregnancy test. But if you just go and get a pregnancy test, that way you can find out for sure if it’s positive.

CALLER: What kind should I get?

CLINIC: The EPT. EPT is in a purple and white box. And that’s the same ones we do offer here on procedure day.

CALLER: If it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control from you guys?

CLINIC: Yes. You’d have to have a pap smear, but yes you can get birth control from us.

CALLER: Well, how much does it cost for a pap smear?

CLINIC: Seventy-five dollars.

CALLER: Okay. If I was coming in for an abortion and everything, how much should I bring?

CLINIC: Are you positive blood type?

CALLER: I’m not really sure.

CLINIC: It would be $390. Because of your age, if you haven’t had a pap done, I do recommend you having the IV sedation, which would be 465.

CALLER: Okay. So how much money should I tell my boyfriend to get?

CLINIC: 465 total.

CALLER: 465?

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: Do I need to make an appointment for that?

CLINIC: Well, go ahead and do that test, and then call us and let us know.

CALLER: Should I call you back? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name’s Glenda.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay? Thanks. Bye.

CLINIC: No. He doesn’t need to sign anything.

CALLER: Because we just don’t want anybody to know about us. So.

CLINIC: Okay, but he’d be welcome to come, sure.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, if I had any other questions, could I call and talk to you?

CLINIC: Well, my name is Nancy.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Who’s the educator?

CLINIC: That would either be Andrea or Jodie.

CALLER: Should I ask for them instead do you think?

CLINIC: If you come in, you get the pregnancy test, you have a lot of questions, then why don’t you ask to talk to them?

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t. I can give you a number to a place where we refer our clients to.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: It’s called A Choice for Women, 305-630-3363.

CALLER: Well, do you know if they would have to say anything? My friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that they would have to tell my parents I’m getting an abortion. But my boyfriend’s 22.

CLINIC: What you would do is, honestly, call there and find out how they would do it because I’m honestly not sure because I don’t work there, so I’m not sure. But we’ve checked them out and everything and it’s a decent place. But otherwise you’d have to call them in order to find out the age and all that kind of stuff, okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, I’m just really scared, and I don’t know what to do. Could I come in there for a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: Did you do a pregnancy test already?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: So how do you know you’re pregnant?

CALLER: Well, I’m just really scared because I haven’t had my period since December 14th.

CLINIC: Since December? They do pregnancy testing there for free. So what you would do, you’d go there, do the test, and then if that’s what you wanted to do — if you didn’t want to continue — they’d be able to help you out. They’d do some counseling and everything with you there.

CALLER: It’s just my friend told me that you guys were better to go to. But if I came in there and got a pregnancy test —

CLINIC: You’d get a referral. You’d pay $15 for the pregnancy test, and then from there we’d give you a referral. And then that’s where we’d send you to if that’s what you wanted to do.

CALLER: Well, if it said that I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys have birth control there?

CLINIC: We offer birth control pills. But you’d have to do the exam, which is a pap smear, breast exam and pelvic exam. And then from —

CALLER: How much does that all cost?

CLINIC: Regular price is 60 to $80. And then after that you’d be able to buy birth control pills from us, and that’s 17 to $28 per pack, depending on which type. We also have a class that’s going to be this evening at 5:30 that’s for teens 18 and under. And if you want you can go to the class, and that will help discount your exams and everything with us and your birth control pills if that’s what you decide that you want to do.

CALLER: What all does the class talk about?

CLINIC: They’re going to talk about birth control pills and the types of exams that we do here. And then they also talk about STDs and things like that. So it’s real cool. Everybody there is 18 and under, so it’s not like you’re going to be with older folks, you know what I mean?

CALLER: Well, I would just really prefer my boyfriend to be there with me —

CLINIC: He can go with you.

CALLER: It’s all right?

CLINIC: He can go with you. That’s fine. The class is going to be this evening at 5:30.

CALLER: I just don’t want anybody to know about us or anything.

CLINIC: No, it’s fine. The only way they would know is if you told them because we don’t give out any information unless you’ve authorized us to do so.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if I was on birth control, you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody or anything?

CLINIC: No. Only if you told somebody would they know you’re on birth control.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? So did you want the information for the class this evening?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Do you have our address?

CALLER: Yeah, my boyfriend does.

CLINIC: So basically what you’re going to do is go to the class. It’s on the third floor, and it starts at 5:30, and it finishes at 6:30, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And then when you finish the class they’ll give you a little card that you bring with you when you come for your exam and everything. And then what we can do when you come, we can do your pregnancy test. And then if it’s positive, well, we’ll take it from there, and if it’s negative we’ll take it from there as well, okay?

CLINIC: Okay. If it started on the 12th then right now you would be right around 10 weeks, and you have up until 14 weeks, so you’re probably going to need to do it pretty soon if that’s what you want to do.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? Did I give you their phone number?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. Then just, like I said, don’t forget to mention that you’re referred from here.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Say that I came in to you guys to get just make sure I got a pregnancy test just like a second opinion but say that I wasn’t pregnant. Do you guys have birth control there?

CLINIC: Um-hum. We do.

CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody about that?

CLINIC: Okay. No. Uh-uh.

CALLER: Okay. Would it be all right like if my boyfriend came and picked them up?

CLINIC: Picked up what?

CALLER: Like the birth control?

CLINIC: You would need to have an exam first.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So you would get them while you’re here for your exam. We have a teen clinic on Tuesdays.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: It starts at 3:00.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: During that time your exam is just $10.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? And then your birth control is free for you until you’re 18.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, if I talk to my boyfriend and he had another question that I didn’t think of can I talk to you?
