CLINIC: Thank you for calling Planned Parenthood. This is Maria. How can we help you?

CALLER: Hi. I was calling to see — well, do you guys do abortions there?

CLINIC: No, we don’t, but I can give you a referral.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Ready?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. It’s 827-0616. And the name of the clinic is West End Medical Clinic.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: Where is that exactly?

CLINIC: That is close to (Meadowen Mall?), but they’ll give you directions to get there.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — I’m just worried because like — well I’ll be 14 next month, and my friend said that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my –

CLINIC: Oh, no!

CALLER: But my boyfriend is 22.

CLINIC: Not at all.

CALLER: Well, it’s just my boyfriend’s 22. Would he be old enough to take care of it?

CLINIC: What do you mean, care of it?

CALLER: Well, I don’t know. Would he be able to just sign whatever it is and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: They don’t have to tell anybody. You don’t even have to have your boyfriend with you.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, he just said that he would pay for everything, so would it be all right if he was with me?

CLINIC: Yes. I don’t think they’re entitled to do anything regarding that.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, the main reason why I’m worried about it is because I haven’t had my period since like December 26.

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: And I’m just scared.

CLINIC: Have you had a test done?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: You probably do need to get one done.

CALLER: Well, could I come in there for that?

CLINIC: Yeah, you can come in today between 1:00 and 4:00 for the pregnancy test.

CALLER: Okay, but how long does that normally take?

CLINIC: About 30 minutes to an hour today just because we have drop-in clinic today, and that means nobody has an appointment, so first come, first serve.

CALLER: Well, how much does that cost?

CLINIC: $5.00.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: We can — it will be based on a lot of things, so whenever you can come in we can discuss that.

CALLER: Oh. Well, so –

CLINIC: Because you know, if you haven’t had a period, you’re late, or let’s say you’re not pregnant, we still will have to wait two more weeks with you abstaining. That means no sex — and then run another test.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Because, you know, if it doesn’t show up that you’re pregnant now you could have gotten pregnant a week ago, but it still won’t show.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Oh. Well, if — but after everything is all right and I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control?

CLINIC: OH, yeah. Yeah. Of course.

CALLER: Okay. Well, would you have to tell anybody if I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: No. You don’t need your parents permission to come to us, to go to that clinic you talked about to get birth control.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: You don’t have to.

CALLER: It’s just, I just don’t want anybody to know about this, so.

CLINIC: Oh, we can’t.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: Well, if I thought of any other questions could I call and talk to you?

CLINIC: Yeah. No problem.

CALLER: And your name was Maria?

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay, thanks.

CLINIC: Okay, bye.

CALLER: Bye.

CLINIC: Thank you for calling Planned Parenthood. This is Pat.

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling to see — well, do you guys do abortions there?

CLINIC: No, but I can give you the phone number of the doctor in town who does.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: 827-0616.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know, like — I’m just kind of scared because like — well I’ll be 14 next month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22.

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Is he old enough to take care of it?

CLINIC: What do you mean, old enough to take care of it?

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever it is and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: You don’t need any consent at all from the doctor who does the termination. You just call and make your appointment.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, do you know — like the main reason why I’m worried about all this is because I haven’t had my period since like December 26. Would there be –

CLINIC: Have you run a pregnancy test?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: You need to run a pregnancy test first.

CALLER: Oh. Well, could I come in there for that?

CLINIC: Between 2:00 and 5:00.

CALLER: Today?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, what are your — do you do it tomorrow?

CLINIC: Yeah, Monday through Friday, 2:00 to 5:00.

CALLER: Oh, okay. But would you have to tell anybody I was there for that?

CLINIC: No, we don’t.

CALLER: Oh. Well, another thing is, like my boyfriend said that he would pay for it, but when we were talking about this we decided that we didn’t want a whole bunch of people to know about us.

CLINIC: Nobody knows about it but you.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right.

CALLER: But if it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: We can make you an appointment certainly.

CALLER: Okay. But would anyone have to know about that?

CLINIC: Like I’ve already said three times, nobody will know but you and whoever you want to know about it.

CALLER: Okay. Well, the thing is, I can’t drive. Would my boyfriend be able to pick up the birth control pills?

CLINIC: Once you’re on them, he could, yeah.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: You would have to come in for your appointment first, so we’ll have to rule out pregnancy first.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right? So 2:00 to 5:00?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Okay. All right. Thanks.

CLINIC: You’re welcome.

CALLER: Bye.

CLINIC: Bye bye.
