CLINIC: Planned Parenthood.
CALLER: Hi. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: No, we don’t. I can give you the number to the clinic on Webster that does.
CLINIC: It’s 424-5005.
CALLER: Okay. I’ll be 14 in March. And my friend told me that my parents have to sign some stuff. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he sign it?
CLINIC: Because in the state’s eyes you are not old enough to be having sex, and he is way over age.
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: Yes. That’s molestation.
CALLER: But we’re in love. He’s not doing anything —
CLINIC: That still doesn’t matter. And, yeah, your parents do have to be with you for you to get an abortion.
CALLER: But my parents can’t find out at all. If they found out, I don’t know what would happen.
CLINIC: Okay. Well, I don’t know then because I know your parents do have to be with you.
CALLER: Well, it is okay if I come in for a pregnancy test though?
CLINIC: Yeah, that’s fine.
CALLER: Would you guys have to say anything about my boyfriend or tell my parents?
CALLER: No? So you wouldn’t have to tell anybody anything?
CALLER: Okay. If I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys have birth control there?
CALLER: Would you have to tell anybody that I was on birth control?
CLINIC: Yeah, we would have to report it.
CALLER: You would?
CLINIC: Yeah. We’d have to report it to child services because you’re only 14 and you’re having intercourse and you’re having sex with a 22-year-old. So we would have to report it.
CALLER: So I couldn’t come in for a pregnancy test?
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?
CALLER: Okay. All right. Is it okay if I call you back then?
CLINIC: That’s fine.
CLINIC: All right.
