TAPE – 374
(Dialing, phone ringing 2x)
CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. May I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: No, ma’am, we don’t. We refer out for that procedure.
CALLER: All right. Do you have a number then?
CLINIC: Excuse me? A number?
CLINIC: Uh-huh– 329-8120.
CALLER: All right. Do you know if they would have to tell my parents? My friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that they would have to tell my parents I’m having an abortion.
CLINIC: You do have to have parental consent.
CALLER: Okay. Well, my boyfriend’s 22. Is there anything that he could do instead?
CLINIC: Nope. You’d have to go out of state. Let me give you a couple of phone numbers.
CALLER: All right.
CLINIC: I can give you a number for one in Dallas.
CLINIC: It’s 214-373-1868.
CALLER: Well, could I come there for a pregnancy test then?
CLINIC: Yes. You can walk in for those, and they’re $8.
CALLER: Well, does anybody have to know that I was there?
CLINIC: No. You can come tomorrow for that if you’d like.
CALLER: It’s just my boyfriend doesn’t want anybody to know.
CALLER: Well, if I come in for a pregnancy test, if it was negative, do you guys have birth control there?
CLINIC: Yes, we do.
CALLER: Well, would you have to tell anybody that I was on birth control?
CLINIC: No. You can consent for yourself with that. And it would be $12 plus the cost of the pills, which is 13 a month.
CALLER: Okay. I just have so many questions. If I think of anything else, could I call and talk to you? What was your name?
CLINIC: You sure can. My name’s Amy.
CALLER: All right. Thanks.
CLINIC: Uh-huh. Bye bye.
