(dialing sounds) (ringing 4X)

CLINIC: Hayes Planned Parenthood. This is Jandy.

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

CLINIC: No. We don’t.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know of any place that does?

CLINIC: Yes. Let me tell you — look in the phone book in the yellow pages, and look under — hold on. I’ll have to look for you. It’s under “abortion providers.”

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: And there’s two different ones in there, and they have 800 numbers in there.

CALLER: Okay. Well, can I ask you a quick question?

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: It’s just I’m worried because my friend told me that — well, I’ll be 14 in March, and she said that they would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just take care of it and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: I don’t think so. If you’re under 18 you have to have parents’ consent.

CALLER: Oh, is there — do you know of any way that I wouldn’t have to tell my parents? Because I don’t know what would happen if my parents found out.

CLINIC: The only way would be like through the court systems. If you want and got emancipated.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: But I — that’s a long, drawn-out process. But, yeah, if you’re under 18 you have to — I know if you go to Wichita you have to have a parents’ consent.

CALLER: Okay. Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test? I’m just scared because like my last period was December 14. So.

CLINIC: Sure. We’ll be here until 3:00 if you’d like to come down and get one.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I’d have to call my boyfriend to see, but if it wasn’t — like if I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: We sure do.

CALLER: Would it be all right if like my boyfriend was there with me? Because I would just feel better if he was there with me.

CLINIC: No, that’s not a problem. He can come down here with us. Yeah, that’s fine.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: If you guys do decide to do it today as long as you’re here before 3:00 we can get all that taken care of.

CALLER: Well, it’s just — we were talking about it, and we just decided that we didn’t want anybody to know about us. Would you guys have to ask any questions or anything or have him sign anything?

CLINIC: No, it would all be around you. Everything down here is strictly confidential. Here we can, here in our office we can serve, like give services to minors without anybody knowing, like parents, anybody.

CALLER: So if the pregnancy test was negative and I was on birth control you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody about that either?

CLINIC: Uh-uh. Not at all.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well –

CLINIC: How old did you say you were?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Oh, okay. But yeah, no, nothing down here, nothing. Parents don’t know, nothing like that.

CALLER: Okay. Well, would it be all right — like it’s just I don’t drive yet. But could my boyfriend pick up the, like the birth control if I had that? Because I wouldn’t have any way to pick it up.

CLINIC: If you actually came down here and got the pregnancy test and it was negative, we’d still actually have to see you. Like if you did do it today we could do all of it — like get you a pap smear and have the nurse review your system, our health systems and everything, and then we could get you some pills. For me, there on out, yeah, if you call and tell me that he’s coming in to pick them up, that’s not a problem. Not a problem at all.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: All right? Let me — you decide what you want to do, and if you want to come down today we’ll be here until 3:00. If not, and you want to just make an appointment — otherwise, give me a call back and we’ll get you taken care of.

CALLER: Well, your name was Jan? Or what’s your name?

CLINIC: Jandy. Like Candy but with a J.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: All right?

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Bye bye.

CALLER: Bye.
