CLINIC: It’s 1-800-352-1901.
CALLER: Okay. What was the Women’s Center in Indianapolis?
CLINIC: Yeah. It’s a Woman’s Choice.
CALLER: Okay. And that’s the 1-800 number?
CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know like — my friend said that my parents have to sign some stuff. Is it all right if my boyfriend does it because he’s 22?
CLINIC: That I’m not sure. That I can’t answer you. You’d have to ask them.
CALLER: Is there like — well do you know if there’s like an age limit or anything to have an abortion? Like I’ll be 14 in March.
CLINIC: No, not that I know of.
CLINIC: Okay? You’ll just have to call and ask, talk to them about it.
CALLER: Okay. Do you know like — do you know if my parents have to know or anything?
CLINIC: That I’m not sure of either.
CALLER: Well, could I come into there and get a pregnancy test?
CLINIC: To make sure that you are?
CLINIC: Yes, you can.
CALLER: Would you guys have to tell my parents?
CALLER: They just can’t find out at all.
CLINIC: No. We don’t — that’s confidentiality.
CLINIC: And it’s $5.00 for the pregnancy test.
CALLER: Okay. Is it all right if my boyfriend brings me?
CALLER: It is?
CALLER: Okay. Do you guys have to know anything about him at all?
CALLER: All right. So like you wouldn’t be asking like a whole bunch of questions or anything?
CLINIC: No. We just do the pregnancy test on you and talk to you about it, and give you whatever information you’d like to have.
CALLER: So if it ended up 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 was on birth control?
CLINIC: No. That would be your choice.
CALLER: All right.
CLINIC: Okay? And to that, it’s $27 to do HOPE which is called the (unclear) exam, and then your pills are $11 per pack.
CALLER: All right. Well, is it okay if like I call you back to get an appointment?
CLINIC: You don’t need an appointment to do neither one of those.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well if my boyfriend had questions or anything that I didn’t think of, could I call and talk to you? You’re just nice. I don’t want to talk to anyone else.
CLINIC: Yeah. I’ll be here.
CALLER: What was your name?
CALLER: Thank you.
