(dialing sound) (ringing 1X)

CLINIC: Good afternoon. Planned Parenthood.

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t. They’re done in our Dover office and in our Annapolis office. Did you want the phone numbers?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. Did you have insurance at all?

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend said he would pay for everything. He’s got a job. He’s 22, so.

CLINIC: Okay. Do you have insurance at all?

CALLER: No. He was going to pay cash.

CLINIC: Okay. The Dover is 302-678-5200. And Annapolis is 410-269-1020.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know if there’s like an age limit for anything like that? Like I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: You probably have a better time going to Annapolis then.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: The laws in Delaware are a little different.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: But call both places and see if you want, because Dover’s a little bit closer.

CALLER: Oh. Do you know if they have to tell my parents or anything because they can’t find out.

CLINIC: That I’m not sure of. I’m not sure of the laws. The laws in Maryland I know you don’t. You’d be okay.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: Okay? So you may just want to go ahead and call Annapolis.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, like say that I wasn’t pregnant. My friend told me to go to you guys, so that’s why I’m calling you.

CLINIC: Have you had a test done to confirm it?

CALLER: Well, not really. I took a home pregnancy test over the weekend.

CLINIC: Okay, did you want to come in here?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: We’ll be here today until 4:00, and we can at least do the test.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: I need you to bring your school ID with you though.

CALLER: Well, I’m homeschooled. I don’t have one.

CLINIC: I need some kind of proof of income.

CALLER: But I don’t have a job.

CLINIC: Yeah, I know. I don’t know — well, just come in and we’ll figure it out when you get here, okay?

CALLER: Well, should I bring anything?

CLINIC: I don’t know what you should bring. (laughs)

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Right?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: You don’t really have anything.

CALLER: What about like my boyfriend’s income?

CLINIC: Well, but you don’t live with him, right?

CALLER: Right.

CLINIC: Yeah. No. Just come in. We’ll get you to fill out a form and we’ll try to –

CALLER: Does he have to fill out anything then?

CLINIC: No. Uh-uh. You’re the patient.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: Okay? And do you know where we are?

CALLER: Well, he does.

CLINIC: Okay. We’re in Court Plaza 13, okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, like after the pregnancy test like if I wasn’t pregnant or anything, do you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes. We could get you some pills.

CALLER: We’re just really scared. We just — but you guys don’t have to tell anybody about that, right?

CLINIC: Everything is confidential.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Is it — like I need to talk to my boyfriend and see.

CLINIC: We’re here until 4:00 if you could come in before 3:15 that would be best, okay?

CALLER: Okay. Is it all right if I call you back if I think of anything else to ask?

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: What was your name?

CLINIC: Becky.

CALLER: Becky? All right. Thanks.

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: Bye.

CLINIC: Bye
