(Dialing, phone ringing)

CLINIC: Thank you for calling Reproductive Services. This is Veronica. How may I help you?

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Do you know how much it cost for that?

CLINIC: Yes, I do. Do you know how far along? Do you know when the first day of your last period was?

CALLER: January 3rd.

CLINIC: Okay. If you are between 7 and 12 weeks, it’s 405. If you are 13 to 14 weeks, it’s 490, and 15 to 17 weeks is 630, and that’s as far as we go here; otherwise, we can refer you somewhere else.

CALLER: Oh. Okay. So where am I then if my last period was January 3rd?

CLINIC: Well, can you hold on just one moment? And I’ll try to find out.

CALLER: Sure.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Thank you for holding. You are probably close to eight weeks, eight-and-a-half, maybe nine.

CALLER: So how much would that cost then?

CLINIC: 405. The first available appointment I have is March 20th.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Would you like to schedule an appointment?

CALLER: Well, the thing is, I was just actually wanting to ask, I’m going to be 14 later on this month — on the 19th — and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever it is, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No. I wish we could. With the new law that Governor Keating passed in Oklahoma, all minors coming in for an abortion have to have a parental consent, even if you are an emancipated minor.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: I know. So you might want me to refer you out of state, anyway. Actually, there’s a place in Dallas that will handle minors without parental consent.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: You want the number?

CALLER: Yes, please.

CLINIC: It’s 800-727-2255.

CALLER: Okay. Could I come there for a pregnancy test just to make sure?

CLINIC: Yes. And you could also — well, actually, the only thing we can — hold on just one moment, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Are you holding for the nurse?

CALLER: For Veronica.

CLINIC: Oh, okay. Hold on just a minute.

(Pause)

CLINIC: May I help you?

CALLER: Yeah. I was talking to Veronica.

CLINIC: Yes. She got busy with somebody else.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: I’ll be happy to help you.

CALLER: Well, I was wondering if I could get a pregnancy test without my parents finding out. Because I’m going to be 14 later on this month. My boyfriend’s 22. Could he just take care of it?

CLINIC: A pregnancy test or an abortion?

CALLER: A pregnancy test.

CLINIC: You can come in tomorrow, 8:30 to 3:30. And if you are two weeks late on your period, it’s a free test.

CALLER: Well, I haven’t had my period since January 3rd. That’s why I was calling, to get an abortion.

CLINIC: Well, you can’t get an abortion without your parents’ permission.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: But if you want to run a pregnancy test, we’ll be happy to do that.

CALLER: But would you have to tell anybody if I was getting a pregnancy test though?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay. You can come in tomorrow.

CALLER: Okay. What time are you guys open?

CLINIC: We are open at 8:30. Come on around 10:00 or so.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? We can run the pregnancy test. Now, you cannot have an abortion without the permission of your parents.

CALLER: Well, if the pregnancy test turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control from you guys?

CLINIC: No, you cannot.

CALLER: Oh. You guys don’t do birth control?

CLINIC: No. Just for our parents. That’s all.

CALLER: Well, could I become a patient then?

CLINIC: No. You have to have an abortion to be a patient.

CALLER: Oh, okay. And I have to tell my parents before —

CLINIC: Yes, you do have to tell your parents. I’m sorry.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: So when I come in for a pregnancy test, nobody has to know anything?

CLINIC: Well, you’re coming to a clinic. Nobody has to know anything. We won’t tell anybody.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right. If I had any other questions, could I call and talk to you? What was your name?

CLINIC: Good afternoon, Planned Parenthood West. This is Patricia. May I help you?

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

CLINIC: No, ma’am, we don’t.

CALLER: Do you know of anyplace that does?

CLINIC: You might call Reproductive Services at 665-6400.

CALLER: Okay. Could I ask you a question real quick?

CLINIC: You can ask. I’m not sure if I can answer you.

CALLER: Well, I’m just really worried because my friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that my parents have to know. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could I just have him sign whatever –

CLINIC: Concerning about what?

CALLER: Huh?

CLINIC: Concerning what?

CALLER: Having an abortion.

CLINIC: Well, hon, I don’t have any information about that whatsoever. You’ll have to call that number I just gave you.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test then?

CLINIC: We do free pregnancy tests on Wednesday afternoons from 1 to 4:30.

CALLER: Okay. Well, is it all right if I’ll be just 14 in March?

CLINIC: That doesn’t make any difference, hon.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, does anybody have to know about my boyfriend or anything?

CLINIC: No, you don’t have to write that down or anything.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well —

CLINIC: For a free pregnancy test.

CALLER: Well, if I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control right away?

CLINIC: Not that day. You would have to make an appointment.

CALLER: How long does it take to —

CLINIC: Well, we could probably do it in the next day or two.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Would you guys have to tell anybody that I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: No, not about that, uh-uh.

CALLER: Well, would you have to tell them about anything?

CLINIC: Hold on just a second, okay?

CALLER: All right.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Hon, we don’t have to notify your parents, but we have to notify DHS about it.

CALLER: What is that?

CLINIC: Department of Human Services.

CALLER: Why?

CLINIC: Because you’re a minor and he’s an adult.

CALLER: Well, what do you mean? We’re in love. We’re going to get married. Could anything happen?

CLINIC: Well, I don’t know. That would just be up to the — I don’t know.

CALLER: So should I just not come in there then?

CLINIC: Well, hon, that’s up to you. I can’t give you any advice on that. But now as far as when you come in for a free pregnancy test, that’s up to you.

CALLER: Well, would you have to tell the DHS that I was there for a pregnancy test then?

CLINIC: Well, not if the girl doesn’t know.

CALLER: Oh. Doesn’t know about my boyfriend you mean?

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: Oh. So it’s just better not to say anything then?

CLINIC: Well, I’m not going to tell you that, okay (chuckles). I mean, I’m not going to tell you one way of the other on that. I’m just telling you that if you come in and she finds out, then, yes, she will report it. And I don’t know that anything will be done. I can’t tell you that.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, would I be able to get birth control then?

CLINIC: Well, I’m — hold on just a second.

CALLER: Okay.

(Short pause)

CLINIC: Yes, you can still get birth control, hon.

CALLER: But you wouldn’t have to tell anybody about anything?

CLINIC: Well, if you tell the nurse how old he is, yes, she would report it. But you can still get birth control.

CALLER: But if I don’t tell her, she won’t have to say anything?

CLINIC: That’s right.

CALLER: Okay. Okay. Thanks.

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: Bye.
