CLINIC: Planned Parenthood in Hammond. This is Trunette (sp). May I help you?

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

CLINIC: They’re done in our Maryville office.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: The number is 769-6500.

CALLER: Okay. Well do you know like — my friend told me that, like I’ll be 14 in March, and she said that I would have to have my parents sign some stuff.

CLINIC: Right.

CALLER: But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he sign whatever it is?

CLINIC: Uh-uh.

CALLER: No?

CLINIC: Uh-uh.

CALLER: Like, so is there any way not to have to tell my parents, because I don’t know what they would do if they –

CLINIC: Not in Indiana. You can go in Illinois, but not in Indiana.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, so would it be okay to come in there and get like a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: And you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay. Well, so would it be okay if my boyfriend brings me because that’s the only way I’d be able to get there.

CLINIC: That’s fine.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: It’s a $5 charge for the test.

CALLER: How much?

CLINIC: Hmm?

CALLER: How much is the charge for that?

CLINIC: It’s $5.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, if I wasn’t pregnant could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: Yeah, you can.

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

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: It’s just that I can’t let my parents find out or anything.

CLINIC: No. Only for the abortion, but not for birth control services.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay, thanks.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Bye bye.

CALLER: Bye.
