TAPE – 211

(dialing sounds) (ringing 2X)

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. (Doyle?).

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Well, how much does that cost?

CLINIC: How many weeks are you?

CALLER: Well, I don’t really know. Like, well, my last period was like the second week in December.

CLINIC: Let me see. Second week in December, and today we’re the 18th. You’re 9 weeks. You’re in the range of $285, ma’am.

CALLER: Okay. Well, like do you have to be a specific age to have an abortion? Like I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Well, you need to bring a parent to sign your consent.

CALLER: Is there any way not to bring a parent, because I can’t tell them at all. Like they can’t find out because they hate my boyfriend. They think he’s too old for me. Like, well he’s 22. And I don’t understand, but they just can’t find out at all.

CLINIC: Well, okay. Well, if you hold on I’ll give you that information. Please hold.

CALLER: All right.

(pause)

CLINIC: Ma’am, you need to call this number right here. It’s 761-2384.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And you just call and give them your information. I think what will happen is, you’ll have to go — you have to make an appointment.

CALLER: Who are they? What is it?

CLINIC: It’s just a permunal (sic) rights, permunal — I can’t pronounce it. (laughs) Counsel. You’re giving away your parent rights.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: What all does that involve?

CLINIC: You just go before a judge and just ask him, you know –

CALLER: Do I have to get a lawyer for that or anything?

CLINIC: I don’t know. You just have to call that number and find out.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know if the judge ever says no or anything?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: No?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, do you guys do like birth control there or anything?

CLINIC: We do.

CALLER: Okay. Because my boyfriend was wanting to know about that. But like if I was on birth control you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody or anything?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay. Would it be all right?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Like is it all right if my boyfriend brings me, or whatever?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Because my parents can’t find out about that either.

CLINIC: That’s fine, long as you have that paper signing over your rights you should be fine.

CALLER: Okay. So nobody has to know about my boyfriend or anything?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: You call that number, okay?

CALLER: Okay. Thanks.
