CLINIC: Good afternoon. Planned Parenthood. This is Cynthia.

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

CLINIC: No, we sure don’t.

CALLER: Do you know of any place that does?

CLINIC: Yes, I sure do. Hang on just a second, and I’ll give you the numbers.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: You can call the North Florida Women’s Health and Counseling.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: That number is 877-3183.

CALLER: Okay.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, is it all right if I ask a couple questions? Like I’m just scared. I don’t know. But like my friend told me that you guys have to know — you guys have to tell my parents and stuff. Like I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Right.

CALLER: Like do my parents have to know?

CLINIC: Well, I don’t — we don’t do the abortions here, and if we did they wouldn’t know. But I don’t know what to tell you on that because you’ll have to call one of those numbers I gave you and ask them.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: If you ask them if you can be anonymous.

CALLER: Okay. Would they ask anything about my boyfriend or anything? Because he said he was going to take care of everything because he’s 22, and he’s going to take care of everything, but would they have to know anything about him?

CLINIC: I wouldn’t think so.

CALLER: Okay. So it would be all right if he paid for everything, but they wouldn’t say anything about him?

CLINIC: They shouldn’t. I mean, like I said, you can call and ask them.

CALLER: Okay. Well, my friend actually just gave me your number because she went there. But is it okay if I had like a pregnancy test there?

CLINIC: Yeah, you can have a pregnancy test here.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: To confirm it if you’re not sure.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I don’t know. But is it okay like to have a pregnancy test and you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody that I was there?

CLINIC: No, we don’t tell anybody anything.

CALLER: Okay. Like after the –

CLINIC: You’re the only one that we would only talk to, and that’s it.

CALLER: Okay. If it ended up after the pregnancy test that I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody that I’m on birth control?

CLINIC: Right. Okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, is it okay if my boyfriend picks up the pills or whatever?

CLINIC: Yeah, as long as you leave his name.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

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?
