CLINIC: Planned Parenthood.
CALLER: Hi. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: Uh-uh, only Maryville.
CALLER: Do you have that phone number?
CLINIC: Uh-huh– 769-3500.
CALLER: My friend said that you guys have to tell my parents. I’ll be 14 in March, but —
CLINIC: Oh, your mom has to take you or they won’t do it.
CALLER: Really? I can’t let my parents find out at all. They hate my boyfriend; they think he’s too old for me. But he’s only 22.
CLINIC: Oh, no. Your mom or dad has to go with you.
CALLER: But they can’t find out at all? What could I do?
CLINIC: Well, you can’t get it done in Indiana?
CLINIC: You can’t get it done in the state of Indiana without your parent.
CALLER: Okay. So where can I go then?
CLINIC: You can call Chicago Planned Parenthood.
CALLER: Really? Do you have that phone number?
CLINIC: Not right off hand. But if I put you on hold, I can find it.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Could I come there for the pregnancy test though?
CLINIC: You sure can.
CALLER: Would you have to tell anybody about that?
CLINIC: No, ma’am.
CALLER: Would it be all right if my boyfriend brings me?
CALLER: Okay. Could you give me the Chicago number actually?
CLINIC: Hold on.
CLINIC: Let me see. Chicago on North LaSalle, no parental consent or notification required. The number is 1-312-266-1033.
CALLER: Okay. If I came in and got the pregnancy test and it was negative, do you guys have birth control there?
CLINIC: You know what? You would have to make an appointment for an exam.
CALLER: Oh, okay.
CLINIC: All right?
CALLER: Is it all right if I call my boyfriend and then call you back for that?
CALLER: What was your name?
CLINIC: All right.
CLINIC: Bye bye.
