CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. May I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: No, we don’t. We do pregnancy tests.
CLINIC: Have you had a test?
CLINIC: Okay. Have you missed your period?
CALLER: Yeah, that’s why I’m really scared. My last period was December 14th.
CLINIC: Okay. We can do a urine test. It’s $8.
CALLER: I’m just scared because my friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of everything, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: Well, I mean, it’s confidential, you coming in. If you wanted to come in for a test, that’s fine.
CALLER: Okay. Is it all right if he’s there with me? Because I would just feel better if he was there.
CLINIC: Sure. That would be fine.
CALLER: He’s just worried about you guys asking a lot of questions though. Would you have to ask him anything?
CLINIC: I’m sorry?
CALLER: Would you have to ask him anything? He’s just wondering that people would ask a lot of questions and stuff.
CLINIC: What did you say? I’m sorry. I’m having a hard time hearing you.
CALLER: My boyfriend, he wants to come and be there with me, but he doesn’t want to be asked a lot of questions. Would you guys be asking questions and stuff?
CLINIC: Well, we would just talk to you when you came in. Okay?
CALLER: If it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys have birth control there?
CALLER: Would you have to tell anybody that I was on birth control?
CLINIC: Well, we encourage you to talk to someone about that, but we can talk to you about that when you come in.
CALLER: Oh. Well, I can’t talk to my parents. They can’t find out at all. If they found out that I was having sex, I don’t know what they would do.
CLINIC: Well, we just encourage it. It’s not a requirement, but we encourage you to do that. But if you haven’t had a period since December, it would be a good idea to have the test done.
CALLER: Okay. Well, I just have a lot of questions. Is it all right I call you back if I think of something else? What was your name?
CLINIC: My name’s Connie. But if you’d like to make an appointment, just call us, and we can make you an appointment.
CALLER: All right. I have to call him and see. But is it all right if I call you back?
CALLER: All right. Thanks.
