(Dialing, phone ringing 1x)

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.

(Dialing, phone ringing 2x)

CLINIC: Tampa (unclear) Women’s Health Center. Can 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: Do you know when your last menstrual period was?

CALLER: January 3rd.

CLINIC: Okay. One moment, please.

CALLER: All right.

RECORDING: — make the best choice you can. There are other places you could go for an abortion, maybe even some that are less expensive or closer to where you live. But there is no place that will give you more care and attention to you as a whole person.

CLINIC: Ma’am, it will be $350.

CALLER: Okay. 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 everything, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: What happened now?

CALLER: My friend said that since I’m going to be 14 later on this month, that 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: No. Everything is confidential. So your boyfriend, he’s not your legal guardian, so he would do no good.

CALLER: But you don’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: You just come in for the appointment. Everything is confidential.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Would you guys do a pregnancy test beforehand just to see if I was pregnant?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: Okay. It’s just I haven’t had one of those yet.

CLINIC: They always do a pregnancy test first.

CALLER: If it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes. You would have to have a pap smear in order to have that done though.

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

CLINIC: It’s $70.

CALLER: Could I get it done all the same day?

CLINIC: No, you wouldn’t. Depending on what your status is. First you just need to come in and take a pregnancy test and go from there. And they’re $10.

CALLER: When do you normally do them?

CLINIC: We do them everyday, Monday through Saturday actually.

CALLER: So you just walk in?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: What time on Saturday do you do it?

CLINIC: We’re open from 8 to 2 on that day. I mean, we see patients up to 2:00. So if we’re still here at that time, then you can come on in. We schedule up to 2:00, but you don’t have to make an appointment for that. You can just walk in, okay?

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend works from 8 to 5, so that’s the thing. He was wanting me to call to see what your hours are so that he could get time off work.

CLINIC: Like I said, we schedule up to 2:00 on Saturday, but whenever we get done with the last patient is when we close. So I can’t tell you how long we’ll be open on Saturday. It’d be best to come in the morning somewhere between 8 and 2.

CALLER: Okay. I just have so many questions.

CLINIC: But once you came in that day, they can go over any questions that you may have.

CALLER: If I needed to call you to ask you something real quick, would that be all right? What was your name?

CLINIC: I’m sorry?

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

CLINIC: One moment.

RECORDING: — no place that would give you more care and attention to you as a whole person. Isn’t this time difficult enough without having to worry about comfort, safety and quality? You deserve the best of care.

While we direct your call, we would like to tell you more about our facility.

CLINIC: Okay, ma’am. What was your question again?

CALLER: I was just wondering if I could call and ask you any other questions?

CLINIC: Yeah, you can call and speak with anybody. They’d be able to answer your questions.

CALLER: It’s just you’ve been really nice. I’d just rather talk to you.

CLINIC: Well, I’m not always here. My name is Tiffany. But if you want to call back, you can call.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All righty?

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

CLINIC: Yeah, we do. Can you hold one moment?

CALLER: All right.

(Short pause)

CLINIC: Okay. Did you want to make an appointment?

CALLER: Well, I was just wanting to ask some questions first.

CLINIC: Go ahead.

CALLER: How much does it cost to get an abortion?

CLINIC: Well, it depends on how many weeks you are.

CALLER: Okay. Well, how you know?

CLINIC: By the first day of your last menstrual period.

CALLER: That was January 3rd.

CLINIC: Okay. Let’s see. January 3rd?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: That would put you at about nine weeks. And that would be $375 for 13 weeks and under, and above that it’s more.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: We do procedures Tuesdays, Thursdays and Friday by appointment. And everything’s included in that 375.

CALLER: I’m just kind of worried because my friend told me that — well, I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and she said that you guys would have to tell my parents about all this. 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 13?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Let me ask the doctor. It’s up to him. Hold one second.

CALLER: Okay.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Are you there?

CALLER: I’m here.

CLINIC: You’re going to have to have a legal guardian with you since you’re 13.

CALLER: Oh, really?

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: Well, is there any way not to have to tell my parents at all? I mean, they can’t find out.

CLINIC: Your parents can’t find out? By law, honey, you have to have a parent with you or a legal guardian.

CALLER: But I can’t tell them.

CLINIC: You can’t tell them?

CALLER: Is there anywhere else I could go?

CLINIC: No (chuckle). No one will let you –

(Talking to someone else) What’s the age, 16?

Yeah. You have to be at least 16 by Florida state law unless you want to try another state.

CALLER: Oh. What other state should I go to?

CLINIC: (Talking to someone else) Do you know of any other states that don’t require that law?

Hold on. I’m going to try to find out for you, okay?

CALLER: All right.

(Short pause)

CLINIC: Hi. This is Alisa (ph). Can I help you?

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was just really confused. And I was talking to someone about if my parents had to find out I was getting an abortion.

CLINIC: Okay. What is your age?

CALLER: I’m 13. I’ll be 14 on the 19th.

CLINIC: Yes. You do have to have parental consent at that age. There’s no one in the state of Florida that’s going to do a procedure on a patient that’s only 13 or 14 or even 15 without parental consent.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: That’s the law. Yeah, there’s no way.

CALLER: Well, the other lady was looking to see if there was another state I could go to.

CLINIC: Without parental consent? No, not at the age of 13. You have to have parental consent at that age.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: You can’t tell your parents?

CALLER: No, not at all. I mean, they know my boyfriend. He works with my dad, and they know we’re going out. They just don’t know we’re having sex. I mean, they can’t find out. If they knew that we were having sex, I don’t know what they would do.

CLINIC: Oh, okay. How old is your boyfriend?

CALLER: Twenty-two.

CLINIC: Oh. Yeah, that’s definitely an age gap there.

CALLER: Yeah. Well —

CLINIC: Go ahead.

CALLER: Well, I haven’t had a pregnancy test yet. Could I come in there for that, and you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: You can take a home test actually. They’re $10 usually if you buy one from the drug store.

CALLER: Are they usually right though?

CLINIC: Uh-huh. They’re usually 99 percent accurate.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant after I take that, could I come in there for birth control?

CLINIC: Yes. You would need parental consent for that though, because you’re only 13, yeah.

CALLER: Well, even after I’m 14 on the 19th?

CLINIC: No. You would still need parental consent.

CALLER: All right. Well, what should I do then?

CLINIC: Well, if you’re pregnant, you’re probably going to have to tell your parents because if you don’t, and if you continue with the pregnancy, with you being that age and your boyfriend being his age, they can throw him in jail.

CALLER: They can throw him in jail?

CLINIC: Oh, yeah. He can get thrown in jail.

CALLER: Why?

CLINIC: That’s statutory rape right there.

CALLER: But he’s not raping me. We’re in love. We’re going to get married. He said he was going to take care of me forever.

CLINIC: Yeah. But, sweetie, at 13 years old, you’re not old enough to consent to sex at 13.

CALLER: Why?

CLINIC: Because you’re only 13 years old and he’s 22. He’s an adult.

CALLER: Well, I’m almost 14.

CLINIC: It doesn’t matter. At 13 years old and he’s 22 years old, he’s an adult. They can throw him in jail for that.

CALLER: Well, he can’t go to jail. He’s the only one that’s ever there for me.

CLINIC: That’s something you need to talk over with your parents.

CALLER: But I can’t tell them. I mean, they don’t ever listen to me. They don’t understand anything.

CLINIC: Well, what are you going to tell them if you don’t have a termination and you continue with the pregnancy?

CALLER: I don’t know. That’s why I wasn’t wanting to — that’s why I was wanting an abortion.

CLINIC: (Pause) Okay. Yeah. But at that age you definitely have parental — you have to have a parent in the office with you.

CALLER: There’s no way not to have them there with me?

CLINIC: No. There’s no way. At 13 — I’ve already told you like five times — there’s no way.

CALLER: Okay. All right. Okay. Thanks

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Bye.

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.

CALLER: Okay. Because like my boyfriend’s 22. Is it all right if he signs whatever?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: No?

CLINIC: I don’t think so. Hold on. Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Hello?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Okay, you’re the pregnant one, right?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. I spoke to the first number I gave you, that 422 number?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: And I explained to her, you know, 13-year-od, and no you don’t need a consent from your parents.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: In the state of Florida you don’t.

CALLER: So I can have my boyfriend sign whatever?

CLINIC: He doesn’t need to sign anything.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: It’s your choice and this is what you want to do, and that’s up to you.

CALLER: So you guys don’t have to tell anybody like about my boyfriend or like –

CLINIC: Well, I mean, that’s up to you. I mean, but we don’t — he doesn’t, he doesn’t qualify for legal guardian.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: If that’s what you’re trying to do. He doesn’t — he is not your legal guardian.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: It has to be some something that lives with you, either an older brother, older sister. That’s considered more of a consent if you don’t want your parents to know. But you don’t need a consent to have an abortion.

CALLER: So I don’t need to tell my parents?

CLINIC: Correct.

CALLER: Okay. Well say that like I wasn’t pregnant? Do you guys — well like I don’t know, but like do you do the pregnancy test there?

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: And is it all right like if my boyfriend brings me?

CLINIC: He could — we won’t let him inside with you.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Inside the office in the back.

CALLER: Okay. Well, would you guys have to tell anybody if like I had a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: No, we’re also confidential here.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: We don’t need no consent for you to be seen here. Did you do a pregnancy test already?

CALLER: Well, I did a home pregnancy test.

CLINIC: Ah hah.

CALLER: But I don’t know if I did it right. It came out positive, but I’m not sure.
