CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. This is Sue. Can I help you?

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

CLINIC: Unfortunately, we don’t. We do them out of our Sarasota office.

CALLER: Oh. Well, do you have the number for that?

CLINIC: Sure. It’s 941-953-4060. And do you live in the St. Pete area?

CALLER: I live in Parish.

CLINIC: Okay. So we would give you a $50 travel discount.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So your fee– how many weeks are you? Do you know?

CALLER: I’m not sure. My last period was like the second week in December.

CLINIC: Okay. So your fee would be $325.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Which is pretty good. Do you have any questions I could help you with?

CALLER: Yeah. Well, my friend told me that you — since like I’ll be 14 in March that you guys have to tell my parents. But can I just have my boyfriend do it because he’s 22.

CLINIC: You don’t need parents. You don’t need your parents’ consent.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Yeah. That’s something that’s going in front of the legislatures, but it hasn’t passed yet, and it probably won’t pass for several months, so you’re okay.

CALLER: Okay. But you guys don’t have to tell anybody about my boyfriend or anything?

CLINIC: No, absolutely not. Strictly confidential.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well do you guys — like if I come in for like a pregnancy test there, is there a way to get birth control like if I wasn’t pregnant?

CLINIC: Sure.

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

CLINIC: Nope. Nope.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Again, that’s very — that’s all confidential.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay, thanks.

CLINIC: All right. Good luck.

CALLER: Bye.

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. Can I help you?

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

CLINIC: Not at this location but I can give you some phone numbers.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Our Sarasota office is going to be your least expensive option, and then there’s a couple places locally that we recommend.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Do you want all the numbers?

CALLER: Just the Sarasota one, I guess.

CLINIC: Okay, it’s 941-953-4060.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And mention that you’re referred from Planned Parenthood down here because they do give you a bit of a travel discount.

CALLER: Okay. Well, is it all right if I ask you a question real quick?

CLINIC: Sure, if I can answer it for you.

CALLER: Well, I’m just worried because like my friend told me that since like I’ll be 14 in March that you guys have to tell my parents, but can my boyfriend do it? Because he’s 22.

CLINIC: No. Florida is a non-parental-consent state, which means you can access services without your parents’ consent.

CALLER: Okay. So like would my boyfriend have to sign anything or anything?

CLINIC: No, uh-uh. You have a right to privacy from 12 years old on, so it’s all kind of all up to you.

CALLER: Okay. Well, does anybody have to know about him or –

CLINIC: No. Uh-uh.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Nope.

CALLER: So — well like is it okay to come in there for the pregnancy test?

CLINIC: Have you done one at home?

CALLER: Well, I — yeah, I did one over the weekend, but I wasn’t sure if I did it right.

CLINIC: Okay. Did it come up positive?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay, then you probably did it right.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: When was your last period? Do you know?

CALLER: It was like the second week in December.

CLINIC: Okay. So maybe around the 15th?

CALLER: Yeah, like the 12th I think.

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?

CLINIC: Yeah, that’s fine.

CALLER: What was your name?

CLINIC: Carrie.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: Uh-huh.
