(dialing sound) (ringing 2X)

CLINIC: Good morning. (unclear) Women’s Center. How can I help you?

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Okay. Well, how much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: Anything under 12 weeks is $375.

CALLER: Okay. Well, how do you know how many weeks you are?

CLINIC: By sonogram or by an estimate of the date of your last normal period.

CALLER: Okay. So how much is it then?

CLINIC: Anything under 12 weeks, $375.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, so do I — like it’s just the thing is I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: We don’t have to tell your parents, sweetie.

CALLER: Okay. The thing is, we were talking about all this and he said he would pay for everything, but we don’t want anyone to know about us, so would he have to like sign anything?

CLINIC: That’s no problem. Just in case like say anything God forbid something happened, he would, you know, like be responsible because he’s of age. But other than that, your parents don’t need to know. Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right, Sweetie.

CALLER: Do you guys do –

CLINIC: Hold on one second. (music) Hello?

CALLER: Hello.

CLINIC: Yeah, sorry.

CALLER: I’m sorry. I was wondering if you guys do pregnancy tests there just to make sure.

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Do you want to set up an appointment?

CALLER: When do you guys normally do that?

CLINIC: We have appointments Tuesday through Saturday. You can call us the day before the day that you want to come in, okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, what time on Saturday?

CLINIC: Saturday from 7:00 in the morning until 12:00 noon.

CALLER: Okay. It’s just the main reason why I’m worried about all this is because I haven’t had my period since like January 3, and I’m just really scared.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: Do you think there’s any way that I’m not pregnant?

CLINIC: I don’t know. I doubt it very much. But you want to make an appointment, or no?

CALLER: Well, I’d have to call my boyfriend to see when he can get off work. That’s why I’m asking.

CLINIC: Why don’t you give us a call back then, okay?

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

RECORDED: — is appreciated. At Park Med Eastern Women’s Center surgical abortions are performed from 5 to 24 weeks.

CLINIC: Sorry about that.

CALLER: Yeah. I was just wondering if you guys do birth control there if I wasn’t pregnant.

CLINIC: Yeah, definitely.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, how much does it cost for birth control?

CLINIC: That’s a separate visit. That’s $100.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: For the visit for the GYN, okay?

CALLER: Okay. But would anybody have to know if I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: No, not at all.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, could my boyfriend be able to pick up the pills? It’s just I can’t drive yet, so.

CLINIC: No. You have to come.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right. Well, I just need to make an appointment. Can I call you back after I talk to my boyfriend? What was your name?

CLINIC: Of course you can. You can ask for anybody.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? All right?

CALLER: All right. Thanks.

CLINIC: Okay, bye bye.

CLINIC: No, that’s not true.

CALLER: No?

CLINIC: Um-um.

CALLER: She also said that I have to tell you guys — like he’s 22. The problem is I can’t tell my parents at all because they don’t like him because they say he’s too old for me. But there’s just no way that they can find out that we’re having sex.

CLINIC: Sure. That’s not a problem, whenever you’re ready to make this appointment. I’m just letting you know so you’re not caught off guard when they ask you that.

CALLER: Okay. Is there like an age limit or anything?

CLINIC: No, there’s not, um-um.

CALLER: Because I’m going to be 14 in March. And that’s still like all right?

CLINIC: That’s not a problem, no problem at all. You just need to make sure that you come here with somebody. It doesn’t have to be a parent. It can be a boyfriend. It can be a friend.

CALLER: So it’s all right if he brings me and everything?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: If it turns out that I’m not pregnant, do you guys do birth control there to?

CLINIC: Um-hmm.

CALLER: And you guys still wouldn’t have to tell my parents or anybody?

CLINIC: No. Nobody could even find out you were here. If your parents would even personally call, we couldn’t get them any information.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: And nobody would find out?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?
