(Dialing, phone ringing 4x)

CLINIC: Raleigh Women’s Health. How can I help you?

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

CLINIC: We do.

CALLER: Oh, okay. How much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: 350 awake, 525 asleep, as long as you’re not more than 12 weeks.

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

CLINIC: What was the first day of your last menstrual cycle?

CALLER: January 15th.

CLINIC: Hold for me.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Raleigh Women’s Health. How can I help you?

CALLER: Yeah. I was talking to someone else real quick, and I got —

CLINIC: Hold on.

(Pause)

CLINIC: What’s the first day of your last cycle again, hon?x

CALLER: January 15th.

CLINIC: Okay. Judging from that you are about eight weeks.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And that will be — your price is 350 and 525.

CALLER: Okay. I’m just kind of worried. Well, I’m going to be 14 on the 19th of this month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he hold enough to take care of everything, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No, ma’am. (Unclear) boyfriend. And you’re a minor, so you’re going to need a parent with you. The only way around that is that you go to the courthouse and get a judicial bypass.

CALLER: What is that?

CLINIC: Where the magistrate will grant you the right to get the termination done.

CALLER: Okay. And they wouldn’t have to tell my parents?

CLINIC: Right. And I wouldn’t advise you to say anything about your boyfriend being 22, because that’s statutory rape.

CALLER: What do you mean? He’s not raping me. We’re in love. We’re going to get married.

CLINIC: Right. But I wouldn’t advise you to tell the magistrate that because he may not grant you that right knowing that.

CALLER: Oh, really? All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay. If I get that, I could come in there —

CLINIC: Without a parent, yeah.

CALLER: How much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: 350 awake and 525 asleep.

CALLER: No, like the judicial bypass.

CLINIC: You would need to go to the court system. I don’t know that there’s a charge. You can call down to the clerk of court and ask them what you would need to do to get a judicial bypass.

CALLER: Well, do they normally say that it’s all right, and they let you do it?

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: Well, me and my boyfriend were talking about all this, and he said he would pay cash for everything. But we don’t want anyone to know about us. If he was paying for it, would he have to sign anything or have his name on anything?

CLINIC: He’s going to have to sign you in if he brings you. He’s going to have to sign you in because we can’t do a procedure on you without a signature from someone. Now I mean, it doesn’t have to be him. It can be a friend of yours, anybody 18 or older. Okay?

CALLER: All right. So if he came in, then you wouldn’t tell anybody about him?

CLINIC: If he came with you?

CALLER: Right.

CLINIC: No, we wouldn’t discuss you or your visit with anyone at all, not without your permission. So even if your parents are trying to find out, we wouldn’t discuss it with them either as long as you have that judicial bypass.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: I haven’t had a pregnancy test yet. I just haven’t had my period for a while. Would you do it there first?

CLINIC: We can do one here for $15.

CALLER: Okay. How soon would I be able to come in to do that?

CLINIC: How soon could we see you?

CALLER: Yeah, for a pregnancy test.

CLINIC: Oh, we could see you today for that.

CALLER: Oh. How late are you guys there today?

CLINIC: Until about 6. If you decide that you want to come, just give us a call back so that we’ll know to expect you.

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

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody that I was on birth control?

CLINIC: No, ma’am.

CALLER: Oh, all right. Well, let me talk to my boyfriend and see if we can come there tonight. What was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Ladora (sp), but anyone you call would be able to help you.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: All right. Thank you.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Bye bye.

CALLER: Oh. Do you know of any place that does?

CLINIC: Are you in the Raleigh area?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Raleigh Women’s Health does them. Their number is 783-0444.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know, like, if there’s a specific age for that or anything? Like I’ll be 14 in March. Is it all right to have an abortion then?

CLINIC: In the state of North Carolina if you’re under 18 you have to have parental consent.

CALLER: Oh. Is there any way not to do that?

CLINIC: Or you can do the judicial bypass.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Go in front of a judge and plead your case.

CALLER: And they wouldn’t have to tell my parents or anything?

CLINIC: No. But it’s up to the judge whether you can get a termination without your parents’ consent.

CALLER: Well, do I have to get a lawyer for that or anything?

CLINIC: No. Hang on just one second.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Ma’am?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: This is the number you need to call at the courthouse. It’s 755-4109.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And they can tell you exactly where you need to go in the courthouse and more about the procedure.

CALLER: Okay. Well, so I don’t have to get a lawyer or anything?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Or you don’t know?

CLINIC: No, you don’t have to get a lawyer.

CALLER: Okay. Well, like do you know if like do you guys do pregnancy tests there?

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

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

CLINIC: There’s no charge.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, is it all right like if my boyfriend brings me? Like he’s 22. He said he was going to take care of everything, so.

CLINIC: Yeah, that’s fine.

CALLER: Okay. Well, like you don’t have to be a specific age to get a pregnancy test either?

CLINIC: No. There’s no law in North Carolina about family planning things.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, like my boyfriend — or my friend actually said that you guys have to know about my boyfriend when I come in. Is that –

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Because like –

CLINIC: We don’t need to know anything about your boyfriend.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Why would she say that then? I don’t understand.

CLINIC: Who said that?

CALLER: My friend.

CLINIC: She obviously — I don’t know. Because we don’t need to know anything about him.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, he was also wondering about birth control. Do you guys do that there?

CLINIC: Yes, we do. What you need to do is get a full GYN exam, and once that is done we can give you birth control here.

CALLER: Okay. But you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody that I’m on birth control?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, if I — I need to talk to my boyfriend, but is it cool if I talk to you later if he has any other questions that I didn’t think of?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: What was your name?

CLINIC: Melinda.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Bye.

CALLER: Bye.
