(dialing sound) (ringing 2X)

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. This is Darcy.

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t.

CALLER: Do you know of any place that might?

CLINIC: Center for Choice and Toledo Medical Services. Would you like their phone numbers?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Center for Choice is 255-7769.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And Toledo Medical Services is 407-4800.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know if they have to say anything to my parents? Because like my friend told me that — like I’ll be 14 in March, and she said that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22 –

CLINIC: There is a process that you can go through that, where you don’t need parental consent, but they would be able to tell you what that is. It’s called judicial bypass.

CALLER: Yeah?

CLINIC: But I’m not sure what it entails. But they could tell you there.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Is it okay if my boyfriend like signs for me, because he’s 22.

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: No?

CLINIC: Nope.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Just like the judge or whatever?

CLINIC: Yeah. The judge has to give you permission.

CALLER: Okay. Do you know if he ever says no or anything?

CLINIC: I don’t know anything about it since we don’t do that here, hon.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: Ask one of the clinics. They’ll know.

CALLER: Do you do pregnancy tests there?

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Is it all right if my boyfriend brings me because that’s the only way I’d get there?

CLINIC: Have you had a pregnancy test yet?

CALLER: Well, I took a home pregnancy test, but I don’t — over the weekend. But I don’t know if it, if I did it right.

CLINIC: Was it positive?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. If it was positive, it’s right. You’re not going to get a false positive.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: So instead of wasting your money and time, you should probably just call Center for Choice first because they can also follow up and make sure. They’re going to do an ultrasound and make sure you’re pregnant anyway.

CALLER: Oh. Well, it’s just my friend told me to talk to you guys.

CLINIC: Yeah. You should probably call one of the clinics first because the earlier you get things done, the cheaper it is and the less risky it is. So you don’t want to waste any time.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, do you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: After you have your procedure it’s recommended that you come in within a week so we can get you started.

CALLER: Okay. Well, would you guys have to tell anybody –

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: — if I’m on birth control?

CLINIC: No. You can come in by yourself. We don’t need parental consent.

CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody about my boyfriend or anything?

CLINIC: Nope.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right.

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: Thanks. Bye bye.

CALLER: Bye.
