(Dialing, phone ringing 1x)

CALLER: Portage Planned Parenthood. May I help you?

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t. They do that at the Maryville Planned Parenthood.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you have that phone number?

CLINIC: 769-3500.

CALLER: My friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that they would have to have my parents sign some stuff. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of that?

CLINIC: No, you have to have parental consent.

CALLER: Oh. Is there any way not to tell my parents? Because they can’t find out at all.

CLINIC: Well, then you’re going to have to go out of state.

CALLER: Like which state?

CLINIC: Chicago. Chicago is not requiring parental consent at this time.

CALLER: Do you know how long that would take?

CLINIC: No, I sure don’t. You have to call the clinic in Chicago and talk to them about it.

CALLER: Okay. My last period was like the 14th of December —

CLINIC: Can you hold please?

CALLER: Yeah.

(Pause)

CLINIC: I’m sorry. Go ahead.

CALLER: My last period was like the 14th of December. Do you know if I could come in there to make sure I was pregnant?

CLINIC: Well, we could do a pregnancy test which is $5.

CALLER: Well, would you guys have to tell anybody that I was getting a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: No, everything here would be confidential.

CALLER: Would it be all right if my boyfriend brings me? Because I don’t know how else I would get there?

CLINIC: Yeah, that’s fine. We do pregnancy testing up until 2:30 and then from 4 to 6 this evening.

CALLER: But you’re sure nobody has to know that I’m there?

CLINIC: We’re strictly confidential for that, yes.

CALLER: If I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys have birth control there?

CLINIC: Yeah, we do.

CALLER: Would you have to tell anybody that I was on birth control at all?

CLINIC: No. Everything is confidential here.

CALLER: Okay. I don’t drive. Is it all right if my boyfriend comes and picks up the birth control?

CLINIC: Well, you’d have to go through an exam to do that. And then you can pick up supplies when you come in for your exam.

CALLER: Could I call you right back and talk to my boyfriend and see? What was your name?

CLINIC: This is Pat.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: All right. Bye.

(Dialing, phone ringing 2x)

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. Can I help you?

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

CLINIC: No, we do not.

CALLER: Do you know of anyplace that does?

CLINIC: Have you had a positive pregnancy test?

CALLER: Well, no.

CLINIC: Okay. Do you think you’re pregnant?

CALLER: Well, I think so. I missed my period. The last time I had my period was December 14th.

CLINIC: Okay. You really need to confirm a positive pregnancy test. You can come here. We can do that for $5. You can do a home one. If it’s positive, come in. We can give you lots of information.

CALLER: My friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that my parents have to sign some stuff. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever that is?

CLINIC: (Pause) Now what?

CALLER: Well, my friend said that my parents have to sign some stuff. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he sign whatever that is?

CLINIC: No. You have to have parental consent. But you really need not to worry about all that until you definitely confirm that you are pregnant.

CALLER: Okay. So I don’t have to be a specific age to get a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Is it all right if he brings me? Because that’s the only way I’d be able to get there.

CLINIC: I don’t care who brings you. Do you know where we’re at?

CALLER: Well, he knows.

CLINIC: He does?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Okay. Now, we’ve moved.

CALLER: Yeah. That’s what he said, so I think he knows.

CLINIC: But you need to confirm a positive pregnancy test before you worry about all that other stuff.

CALLER: Okay. So you guys wouldn’t have to tell my parents or anybody that I was there?

CLINIC: You’re how old?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: If you’re 13 and pregnant, we do have to report to Child Protection.

CALLER: But why? What do you mean? Why do you have to tell them?

CLINIC: There are state regulations that say —

CALLER: Nobody can find out. I don’t understand what you mean.

CLINIC: Well, there are state regulations we have to follow, okay?

CALLER: So you have to tell that I was there?

CLINIC: We don’t tell your parents; we tell Child Protection. And Child Protection takes care of it thereafter.

CALLER: But would they tell my parents?

CLINIC: Pardon?

CALLER: Would they tell my parents?

CLINIC: Probably.

CALLER: So if you tell the child protective people, then they would tell my parents?

CLINIC: Okay. You’re worried about stuff you don’t need to worry about yet. You need to confirm a pregnancy test.

CALLER: But if I come in for a pregnancy test you said that you would have to tell the child protective people.

CLINIC: Right. State regulations say, sexually active 13 — or 13-year-olds who are pregnant have to be reported. We have to follow regulations.

CALLER: Well, so what could I do then?

CLINIC: Okay. I’m not sure what you’re wanting from me.

CALLER: Well, I want to be taken care of and not have my parents find out. Because if they found out I don’t know what would happen. They just can’t find out.

CLINIC: Okay. If you’re pregnant, they’re probably going to find out.

CALLER: But they can’t find out.

CLINIC: Okay. What specifically do you want from me?

CALLER: Well, I just don’t want to be pregnant.

CLINIC: Okay. First of all you need to have a positive pregnancy test and know for sure you are pregnant.

CALLER: But if I come in there to get a pregnancy test, you guys would have to tell people that will tell my parents, right?

CLINIC: We have to tell Child Protection. Whether or not they talk to your parents is up to them. If they feel there’s sexual abuse going on, they’re probably going to talk to your parents.

CALLER: But me and my boyfriend are in love. We’re not —

CLINIC: I cannot change regulations.

CALLER: Well, then where can I go to get a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: You can go here. They have like birth right centers. You can go to the drug store and buy them over the counter. But before you worry about all this stuff, you need to have a positive pregnancy test.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if I went to the drug store, are the ones there accurate?

CLINIC: Talk to your pharmacist and ask them which one they recommend.

CALLER: But what if I wasn’t pregnant, could I come there and get birth control?

CLINIC: Well, if you run that test and you’re not pregnant, call us back, and then we can talk to you, set you up an appointment and tell you what we can do.

CALLER: But if I was on birth control from there, would you guys have to tell anybody that I was?

CLINIC: Depends on your age. After a certain age we don’t have to report it. But under certain ages we do have to report it.

CALLER: Well, I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Well, then come see us in March.

CALLER: Would you have to tell anybody then though?

CLINIC: Not if you’re 14.

CALLER: Oh, all right. Okay. You’ve been so nice. If I had any other questions, could I call and talk to you?

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Just call back, and we’ll answer any questions you have.

CALLER: Well, what was your name?

CLINIC: I don’t usually give that out because we never know who you’re going to talk to when you call. I might be off that day. But just call back anytime you need to.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All righty. Bye bye.

CALLER: Bye.

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. Can I help you?

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

CLINIC: No, not at this site. But I can give you a number if you’d like.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay? Hold on just a moment.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Are you ready?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: It’s 1-800-352-1901.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Have you already been confirmed pregnant?

CALLER: No. Do you guys do that there?

CLINIC: Yeah. I can do the confirmation, and you have to have that before you go.

CALLER: Okay. My friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that my parents have to sign some stuff. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to do that?

CLINIC: Like I said, all I can do is pregnancy confirmation. Other than that, I don’t know anything about it.

CALLER: Do you have to have my parents sign anything for that?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Not for just the pregnancy test.

CALLER: So you guys don’t have to tell anybody that I’m getting a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: That’s correct.

CALLER: Okay. Well, is it all right if my boyfriend’s there with me?

CLINIC: That’s completely fine. You’re basically going to be in the waiting room the whole time anyway. So yeah, that’s fine, no big deal.

CALLER: Would he have to sign anything or anything saying that he’s there with me?

CLINIC: Ummmmm — can you hold just a second and I’ll check?

CALLER: Yeah.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Are you there?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Actually, because of your age and his age — and I hate to say this, but we would have to report you.

CALLER: Who would you have to report me to? What do you mean?

CLINIC: You said you were 14, right?

CALLER: Well, I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Okay. So you’re actually 13 right now and he’s 22, right?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: That’s statutory rape.

CALLER: What is that? What do you mean? He’s not raping me.

CLINIC: I know. I understand that. But by our Planned Parenthood guidelines because of your age and his age, we would have to report you to the state of Indiana.

CALLER: What could I do? I don’t want him to go to jail.

CLINIC: Right, I understand that. But I’m just telling you by our protocol, if you come in here for anything, we have to report you to the state of Indiana.

CALLER: So what could I do then?

CLINIC: I have no idea. I don’t know what your avenues are from there. I’m just explaining to you what I can do.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: So you can come in here and get the confirmation for a positive pregnancy, but if you come in here I have to report you to the state of Indiana.

CALLER: Well, I can’t do that at all.

CLINIC: Okay. Well, then I’m sorry.

CALLER: If I wasn’t pregnant, could I come in there for birth control?

CLINIC: Because you’ve already told me your partner is 22, we would still have to report you.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: That’s what I’m saying. If you come in here at all, period, we’re going to have to report you because you’re 14 and he’s 22.

CALLER: Well, is there like a different Planned Parenthood that I could go to?

CLINIC: All of the Planned Parenthood protocols are the exact same. No matter where you go, they would have to report you to the state of Indiana.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: That’s why I wanted to check because I wanted to give you a little heads up to let you know. Okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, thanks.

CLINIC: You’re welcome (chuckle).

CALLER: If I took a home pregnancy test, do you think that those are accurate or anything?

CLINIC: They are accurate, yes. But if you need any other services, whether it be abortion, adoption or keeping the baby after that, you would have to have a positive, confirmed pregnancy test from a doctor.

CALLER: From a doctor?

CLINIC: Or from your doctor, right.

CALLER: Could I get birth control there? Like if the home pregnancy test was negative, could I come in there and get birth control?

CLINIC: You would have to come in and have an exam and get your birth control that way. But like I said, we’d have to report you to the state of Indiana.

CALLER: Even for birth control?

CLINIC: Yes, for anything. Anytime we find out an under-age person is having sex with an older person of that age group, we have to report it to the state of Indiana.

CALLER: Well, I’ll be 14 in March. Does that make any difference?

CLINIC: It has to be under the age of 16. So you’re below by several years.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I’m just really scared and I don’t know what to do.

CLINIC: Right.

CALLER: Could I call and talk to you again?

CLINIC: Sure, no problem.

CALLER: What was your name?

CLINIC: My name’s Maureen. And I’m the only one here besides the nurse.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: You’re welcome.

CALLER: Bye.

CLINIC: Bye.

(Dialing, phone ringing 1x)

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood.

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

CLINIC: No, not at this location. We do provide that service at our Bloomington clinic, one in Indianapolis, and one in Maryville.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Are you pregnant?

CALLER: I don’t know.

CLINIC: I recommend the first step if you’ve not had a pregnancy test, if you think you might be pregnant, go ahead and have a pregnancy test.

CALLER: Can I come to you for that?

CLINIC: You can come here. We do free pregnancy testing here. Are you late for your period?

CALLER: Well, my last period was like the second week in December.

CLINIC: Okay. Yeah, we could do a test on you if you’d like.

CALLER: Would you guys have to — my friend told me that since I’m 14 that my parents have to sign some stuff. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign that?

CLINIC: Well, you don’t have to parents’ permission just to have the pregnancy test. But in the state of Indiana you would have to have a parent’s permission to obtain an abortion.

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March. Do they still need to know?

CLINIC: So you’re not 14 yet?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: You’re only 13?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Up until 18, you have to have parents’ permission for abortion in Indiana.

CALLER: But I could come in there for a pregnancy test and they wouldn’t have to know?

CLINIC: A pregnancy test, yeah. And it is illegal for your boyfriend to be having sex with you at your age.

CALLER: What do you mean? I don’t understand. How is that illegal? We’re in love.

CLINIC: There’s a law against a man of 21 having sex with a young girl of 13.

CALLER: But we’re going to get married. What could happen to him?

CLINIC: Well, it would depend on whether your family wanted to press charges. But you guys just need to be aware of that; that that is unlawful for him to have sex with you.

CALLER: But we’re in love. We’re going to get married.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Whatever your feelings may be, that’s just the law, and it’s very black and white.

CALLER: Well, could I still get a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: Sure. You can get a pregnancy test. If you think you’re pregnant, you can have a pregnancy test.

CALLER: You guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody about him?

CLINIC: No. Pregnancy tests you can come and get just on your own.

CALLER: Well, he’d have to drive me. I don’t know how else I would get there.

CLINIC: That’d be okay.

CALLER: Would it be all right if he came in though?

CLINIC: Um-hmm. He can come in. But the nurse would probably want to talk with him some about the situation.

CALLER: Well, would he get in trouble or anything?

CLINIC: She would need to talk to the Welfare Department about it. They would take it from there.

CALLER: They can’t find out. What would happen if they find out?

CLINIC: Well, I’m not sure exactly how they would follow up on that. Would you like to talk to our nurse? Because I know she’s more involved with that than I am.

CALLER: Well, what was your name?

CLINIC: My name’s Ellen.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I guess.

CLINIC: Hang on just a second.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: (Talking to someone else) Karen? You got just a sec?

Is it okay with you if I tell her what your situation is so she can come talk to you and let you know what to expect?

CALLER: Yeah.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Hi.

CALLER: Hi.

CLINIC: You are 13?

CALLER: Yeah. Well, I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Okay. It doesn’t matter. If your boyfriend’s that old, then it has to be reported to Child Protective Services.

CALLER: So I couldn’t come in for a pregnancy test or anything?

CLINIC: Yes. If you’re sexually active, and you come in here and tell me you’re sexually active, then I have to report it to the Welfare Department.

CALLER: What if I didn’t tell you?

CLINIC: Then why would you want a pregnancy test?

CALLER: Well, I guess you’re right.

CLINIC: I’d be glad to do it, sweetheart. I’ll be glad to see you, and I’ll be glad to talk to you and whoever. But I just want you to know up front that anybody who is — it’s even against the law for a 17-year-old girl to have sex with an 18-year-old boy. So when that happens, I have to call the Welfare Department. They in turn have to report it to the county prosecutor. But if you are pregnant, then that’s going to be a non-fact because you’re going to be delivering (unclear). And if your boyfriend is 18 or over, I can’t guarantee you that the county prosecutor would not prosecute him because he has in the past.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: Well, is there anything I could do at all?

CLINIC: About what?

CALLER: To not get in trouble.

CLINIC: Not have sex. That’s the only thing you can do. Because if you get pregnant at your age, then you’re going to know that you’re pregnant. That’s something you’re not going to be able to hide.

CALLER: Well, is there someplace I could go at all?

CLINIC: For what, sweetie?

CALLER: To get an abortion?

CLINIC: Not without your parents’ permission.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Uh-uh, no. I can’t think of any state that would terminate you at your age without parental consent. There may be some, but I’m not familiar with all the laws in Wyoming or Utah or those kind of places.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: If he took you across state lines, then that’s kidnapping. Then he’s in more trouble than ever —

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: — at your age.

CALLER: Well, what should I do?

CLINIC: Do you think you’re pregnant?

CALLER: Well, my last period was like the second week in December, so I’m just worried about it.

CLINIC: Well, you can buy a pregnancy test at Wal-Mart or CVS or any of those stores and try one of those tests if you want to.

CALLER: Are they usually accurate?

CLINIC: Sometimes, sometimes not. Maybe fairly.

CALLER: But I couldn’t come in there without getting in trouble?

CLINIC: If you come in here, I have to report it to Child Protective Services that you are sexually active.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Now, it’s up to them to pursue it.

CALLER: Do they ever not pursue it?

CLINIC: I’m not aware of a time. The only thing that you can do to absolutely not get in trouble or to not get your boyfriend in trouble is to not have sex.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: All righty, sweetie.

CALLER: But could I come in and get birth control there without you guys telling anybody?

CLINIC: If you tell me you’re sexually active, I have to report.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: All righty, hon.

CALLER: Okay. Well do you know — like my friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that you guys have to have my parents sign some stuff. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he sign whatever?

CLINIC: No. State of Indiana — it’s nothing to do with us — state of Indiana you have to be 18 years of age to have an abortion without parent consent.

CALLER: Well, is there any way not to tell my parents, because well if they found out I don’t know what would happen.

CLINIC: There is nothing in Indiana that you can have it done without being 18 or older without parental consent.

CALLER: Well, what could I do? They can’t find out at all.

CLINIC: Hold on just a second, okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: (pause) Okay, ma’am.

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Okay, really the only two things that you can do is, you would have to go to court to try to get the guardianship taken away from your parents. That would be the only thing that you could do. Now there are –

CALLER: Do I need a lawyer for that?

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: Okay. Well, how would I pay for that?

CLINIC: Yeah. That’s why — I mean, your only option really is to tell your parents.

CALLER: Oh. Well, what was the second thing?

CLINIC: The only other thing is, you know, every state has their own laws of what the age has to be.

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: If you call the number I gave you — do you know that you are pregnant?

CALLER: Well, I don’t know. I guess.

CLINIC: Have you taken a pregnancy test?

CALLER: Well, I took a home pregnancy test over the weekend, but I wasn’t sure if I did it right.

CLINIC: What did it say?

CALLER: It was positive.

CLINIC: Okay. You know –

CALLER: Would there be any way to come in there and get a pregnancy test from you guys just to make sure?

CLINIC: Yeah. You can come in and get a test done. It’s a $5 charge.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And then we would be able to tell you. Are you late? I mean, how late are you?

CALLER: Well, like my last period was like the second week in December.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: Is it all right if my boyfriend brings me?

CLINIC: Yeah, that’s fine.

CALLER: And you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody that I was there at all?

CLINIC: If you’re just getting a pregnancy test, then there’s — you know, we don’t have to report anything. If you — you know, once you get any like STD checks, things like that, then you would have to — and you’re old enough to where it wouldn’t be reported anyway.

CALLER: Okay. So you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody that I –

CLINIC: No. No.

CALLER: If I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys have birth control there?

CLINIC: Yeah. But you would have to become a patient here, have an exam, and they could get you put on birth control

CALLER: Okay. But if I was on birth control you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No. No. As long as you’re — let me make sure on that. Hold on. Hey, Crystal?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: (pause) Ma’am?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Okay. It’s 13 and under.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? So you would be fine on us not reporting to anybody.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: It’s to have an abortion in the state of Indiana you have to be 18.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, so it’s okay if my boyfriend brings me and everything and you guys wouldn’t –

CLINIC: Yeah, that’s fine.

CALLER: — have to say anything about him?

CLINIC: No, no, that’s fine. Just you would have to be here by 4:00 today to get the pregnancy test.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? Do you know where we’re at?

CALLER: My boyfriend does, yeah.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: But is it okay if I call you back? What was your name?

CALLER: Well, we’re in love. We’re going to get married. I don’t understand.

CLINIC: That doesn’t matter.

CALLER: Well, what could happen?

CLINIC: He can go to jail.

CALLER: He can go to jail?

CLINIC: You can come in for a pregnancy test. But if they do anything else, then they’ll have to report it.

CALLER: Oh. Okay. Well, what was your name?

CLINIC: Laura.

CALLER: Okay. All right. Is it okay if I call you back then?

CLINIC: That’s fine.

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: But she said that you guys would have to tell my parents and have them sign some stuff. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he do that?

CLINIC: Not in the state of Indiana.

CALLER: It’s just, I can’t tell them at all.

CLINIC: Can you hold on just a minute?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Yeah. In the state of Indiana you have to have your parents’ consent.

CALLER: But they can’t find out. What could I do?

CLINIC: You have to tell them. There’s no way in the state of Indiana to get an abortion without their consent. That’s just the law here in Indiana.

CALLER: Okay. So my friend told me that she had — she knew someone that got a lawyer. Is there anything I could do with that, or –

CLINIC: Got a lawyer and went to court?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: And how far along are you?

CALLER: Well, I’m not real sure. Like my last period was like the second week in December.

CLINIC: The second week in December was your last period?

CALLER: Yeah.

CALLER: It was probably like the 14th.

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: Would you guys have to tell anybody that I was there?

CLINIC: Pardon me?

CALLER: Would anybody have to find out?

CLINIC: Um-hum. Yes, we do.

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

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay. Because my parents just can’t find out. Is it — could I go to like another state or anything?
