(dialing sound) (ringing 1X)

CLINIC: Good afternoon. Planned Parenthood. Cheryl (Jill?) speaking.

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t. We do pregnancy testing, counseling and referrals. Have you already had a positive test?

CALLER: No. Well, I took a home pregnancy test over the weekend, and it was positive.

CLINIC: Okay, that’s why I asked if you already had a positive test.

CALLER: I don’t know if I did it right, so.

CLINIC: Okay, then your next step would be to — probably you would want to come here and have it confirmed with one of our tests. How old are you?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Okay. It would $5 to do that and then the counselor will sit down with you and she’ll give you all your appropriate referrals. Depending on where you go it can be much less expensive –

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: — for termination if you have a referral, okay?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: She is here tomorrow if you want to come in tomorrow to have your test.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? Let me see where I can get you in.

CALLER: I’d have to talk to my boyfriend to see when he can get off work, but.

CLINIC: Okay. I can get you in tomorrow afternoon if you want to do it tomorrow afternoon, so why don’t you check with him and the give me a call back? Okay? My name is Cheryl. You can just ask for me since I already know what’s going on.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: What’s your first name?

CALLER: Christine.

CLINIC: Christine. Okay, Christine.

CALLER: Well, actually I had a question.

CLINIC: Go ahead.

CALLER: My friend said that since like I’ll be 14 in March that you guys have to tell my parents, but can –

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: — my boyfriend just take care of it? He’s 22.

CLINIC: Yeah. No, you don’t. You don’t need to. You don’t need to.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: So say 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?

CLINIC: Right. Right. She’ll talk to you about all that when you come in for your test, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right?

CALLER: Does anyone have to know about my boyfriend or anything?

CLINIC: I’m sorry?

CALLER: Does anyone have to know about my boyfriend at all?

CLINIC: Does anyone have to know about him?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: You can talk to the counselor about it when you come in. What do you mean by “know about him?”

CALLER: Well, like my parents can’t find out that –

CLINIC: Everything here is confidential, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Everything’s strictly confidential.

CALLER: So it’s all right if he brings me in and everything?

CLINIC: Yeah. Everything’s up to the patient whether or not you want him to sit in on the counseling. That’s totally up to you.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: All right. Let us know what you want to do.

CALLER: Okay. Thanks.

CLINIC: Bye bye.
