TAPE – 831

(Dialing, phone ringing 1x)

CLINIC: New Orleans East Women’s Clinic.

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling actually to see if you guys do abortions there?

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: How much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: How far pregnant?

CALLER: I’m not really sure. How do you know?

CLINIC: When was your last period?

CALLER: January 15th.

CLINIC: You usually get pregnant two weeks before your period. Going by a period of January 15th, you’re going to be right about eight weeks right now. It will be $350.

CALLER: The thing is, I’m kind of worried. I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend said that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just take care of it, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No, he’s not your legal guardian. The only way you can get out of telling your parents is if you’re married and you’re legally emancipated. You’d have to just bring in your marriage license with an id, or you’d have to go to juvenile court and ask the judge to give you permission to terminate on your own being a minor.

CALLER: Do they usually say it’s all right then?

CLINIC: I think it really depends. Each case is different. I’ve had some girls go down there, and they get the paper; other girls were sent away. It really depends on what parish you live in. What parish do you live in?

CALLER: I live in New Orleans.

CLINIC: New Orleans. Usually it’s harder in New Orleans, Jefferson, for some reason.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Me and my boyfriend were talking about all this, and we don’t want anyone to know about us. But he said he would pay for everything. If I went to court and the judge said it was all right, would it be okay if he paid for everything, and you wouldn’t have to have him sign anything or have his name on anything?

CLINIC: No. His name doesn’t have to be on anything.

CALLER: Would you guys do a pregnancy test beforehand just to make sure I am pregnant?

CLINIC: Yeah. But you can do a home test also. They’re very accurate.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control from you guys?

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: How much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: It would be $60. And that would include a birth control full prescription for six months, a pap exam and breath exam.

CALLER: Okay. But would you have to tell anybody about that though?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Well, if I had any other questions, could I call and talk to you? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Liz.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: All right. Thanks. Bye.

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. This is Glenda. May I help you?

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t. I can give you two names, two numbers for two places we have.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay, the first one is Carlsby (Crosby?) Medical Suite, and the number is 837-1272. And the next one is New Orleans East Women’s Clinic, and the number is 244-9681.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And that’s it. That’s all I have.

CALLER: Well, do you know — like I’m just worried because my friend said that — well, I’m going to be 14 in March. And she said that you guys — that they would have to tell my parents I’m getting an abortion. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of all that and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: Yeah. I don’t think they would tell your parents. Just call in. Right. Just call and talk them and see what they say, okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, I’m just really scared because like my period — I haven’t had my period since December 21st. Is it all right to come in there for a pregnancy test just to make sure?

CLINIC: Yes. It’s fine.

CALLER: Okay. Well, would you guys have to tell anybody that I was there for a –

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: — pregnancy test?

CLINIC: Uh-uh. It’s strictly confidential.

CALLER: Well, is it all right if my boyfriend is there with me?

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Okay. It’s just, we were talking about all this and we don’t want anyone to know.

CLINIC: Oh, that’s fine. If it’s strictly confidential, okay?

CALLER: All right. Well, if it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes, you will have to make an appointment for that. If you want to come in and take a pregnancy test you can just come on in and just walk in. You don’t need an appointment. But if you want to get on birth controls, you have to make an appointment. Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, would anyone have to know that I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Um-um.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Thank you.

CALLER: Thank you.

CLINIC: You’re welcome. Good bye.
