(Dialing, phone ringing 2x)

CLINIC: (Male voice) Planned Parenthood. How may I help you?

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

CLINIC: Oh, yeah. Did you hang up?

CALLER: Well, my friend’s mom came in, and I couldn’t stay on the phone.

CLINIC: Okay. Yes, we do. We do them up to 12 weeks.

CALLER: Okay. Well, how do you know how many weeks you are?

CLINIC: I’m going to ask you right now. When was the first day of your last normal menstrual period?

CALLER: January 3rd.

CLINIC: You are approximately nine to ten weeks right now.

CALLER: Okay. How much would it be then?

CLINIC: The price?

CALLER: Right.

CLINIC: It would be $350.

CALLER: Okay. The thing is, I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend said that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No, we can’t do that. If you’re 14 years old, we have to have parental consent.

CALLER: Is there any way not to have to tell my parents?

CLINIC: Excuse me?

CALLER: Is there any way not to have to tell my parents?

CLINIC: There isn’t. That’s the law. We can’t do that.

CALLER: So I’d have to tell my parents then?

CLINIC: You have to tell your parents, yeah, because that’s already the law. Otherwise, we would get in trouble.

CALLER: Is there anyplace else I could go where my parents wouldn’t have to find out?

CLINIC: Unfortunately, not here in Oregon. I’m not really sure about Washington.

CALLER: Oh. Okay.

CLINIC: You can call Washington Planned Parenthood, but you have to travel there though.

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend said he would drive. What’s the number for that?

CLINIC: Actually, they’re all (unclear). Our affiliates are all 14. I can give you the numbers.

CALLER: Well, I’ll be 14 on the 19th.

CLINIC: I know, but you’re 13 right now.

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Either way, you still have to tell — you’re going to be 14. You still have a whole year. In other words, you have to be 15.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: (Unclear). Hold on a second. Let me look at some other numbers, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Are you still there?

CALLER: I’m here.

CLINIC: Okay. I’ll be with you in just a second, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

(Long pause)

CLINIC: Are you still there? I’ll be with you just a second, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. How can I help you?

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was talking to some other person and got hung up on.

CLINIC: Hold on.

(Long pause)

CLINIC: (Male voice) Are you still there?

CALLER: I’m here.

CLINIC: Here’s the number, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: I have to go find it.

(Short pause)

CLINIC: Okay, here it is. It’s going to be in Vancouver, Washington, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: 360-694-1188. And you don’t need to have parental consent.

CALLER: Could I come in there for a pregnancy test, so that I would know for sure?

CLINIC: Yeah. You can come in for a pregnancy test.

CALLER: But would anybody have to know?

CLINIC: No. Everything is confidential. But today we do close at 3. So if you want to come, you have to come ASAP.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Are you open tomorrow though?

CLINIC: No, we’re not open tomorrow. We’re open Mondays from 12 to 8.

CALLER: Okay. If it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: Definitely.

CALLER: Would you have to tell anybody if I was on birth control?

CLINIC: Everything is confidential. Well, if I had any other questions, could I call and talk to you? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Rapheal (ph). You can talk to anybody. Everybody here will be able to give you that information. Okay?

CALLER: All right. Thanks.

CLINIC: Okay. Bye.

CLINIC: Dr. Boor’s (ph) office.

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

CLINIC: We do.

CALLER: Okay. Well, how much does that cost?

CLINIC: It depends on how far along you are.

CALLER: Well, how do you know how far along you are?

CLINIC: Well, you have to have an ultra sound or when your last period was.

CALLER: Well, my last period was January 3rd.

CLINIC: Okay. If you’re under 12 weeks it’s $350.

CALLER: The thing is, I’m going to be 14 on the 20th, and my friend said you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No. If you’re 14, you need to have your parents’ consent.

CALLER: Oh. Is there any way not to have to tell them?

CLINIC: No. You would have to tell them if you’re 14.

CALLER: But I can’t tell them.

CLINIC: That’s state law.

CALLER: But I can’t tell them. They can’t find out at all. I mean, if they found out that me and my boyfriend were having sex I don’t know what they would do.

CLINIC: I don’t know what to tell you. You have to have a parent’s consent if you’re 14.

CALLER: Well, is there anybody that I could go to?

CLINIC: The problem is it’s Oregon state law. You’ve got to figure something out.

CALLER: Is there any other state I could go to?

CLINIC: I don’t know. They’re probably a little more strict. You might try Washington and see what their limit is.

CALLER: Do you have a number for anyplace in Washington?

CLINIC: I don’t.

CALLER: Oh, okay. All right. I just have to get a pregnancy test really. Do you guys do that there?

CLINIC: No. You can go buy one at the store.

CALLER: Oh. But are those usually right?

CLINIC: Yeah, they’re very correct and accurate.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Um-hmm.

CALLER: Well, if turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: You would have to go through your doctor or through like a — if cost is an issue, a county health department would be able to give you some for a very minimal price.

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend said that he would pay for everything.

CLINIC: Well, not if you’re not a patient right now.

CALLER: Well, could I be a patient and get birth control?

CLINIC: Not at this time. We’re not accepting patients. We’re seeing people for abortion.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, when do you normally see people for pregnancy tests and birth control?

CLINIC: We don’t usually do pregnancy tests because people can buy them themselves.

CALLER: Oh, okay. When do you guys normally see people for birth control? My boyfriend told me to call you guys, so that’s why I’m trying to —

CLINIC: Well, the first thing you need to do is to see if you’re pregnant or not. That’s the big issue.

CALLER: Well, do you think that there’s like — I just haven’t had my period since January 3rd. Do you think that there’s any way that I’m not pregnant?

CLINIC: You have to have a test.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right. So if I take a pregnancy test, could I call you back and ask —

(Phone ringing)

CLINIC: You’re going to have to hold on, okay?

CALLER: Oh, all right.

(Short pause)

CLINIC: Go ahead.

CALLER: Well, I was just wondering, if I took the pregnancy test and it came out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I call you? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name’s Angie.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: But you need to get established with a clinic to get some birth control.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right. Thank you.

(Dialing, phone ringing 1x)

CLINIC: All Women’s Health Services.

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

CLINIC: We do.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, how much does that cost?

CLINIC: Do you have any kind of insurance or do you qualify for the Oregon Health Plan?

CALLER: Well, I don’t know. But my boyfriend said that he would pay for everything.

CLINIC: Okay. Well, then the cost is going to be starting at $350, and then depending on your lab work and some medication, it could be up to 435.

CALLER: Okay. My problem is I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend said you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No. You’re the one having the abortion, so it applies to you. You have to be 15. So if you’re going to just be 14 then you need to have a parent signing off on all of the forms with you.

CALLER: But I can’t tell my parents at all. I mean, if they found out me and my boyfriend were having sex I don’t know what they would do. They can’t find out at all.

CLINIC: Well, we’re not going to provide an illegal abortion for you. That would get us in a lot of trouble.

CALLER: Well, is there any way not to have to tell my parents and you wouldn’t get in trouble?

CLINIC: It’s illegal to provide an abortion for someone under the age of 15 without parental consent.

CALLER: Well, is there anyplace I could go?

CLINIC: It’s a state law or it might be a federal law; I’m not sure. But that’s the law. So I mean, you really have —

CALLER: Well, what can I do?

CLINIC: You have to tell your parents or —

CALLER: But I can’t tell my parents.

CLINIC: Well, there’s nothing that I can do to change the law. We’re not going to provide the abortion for you unless your parents sign off on everything.

CALLER: Would you have to tell them about my boyfriend though?

CLINIC: Well, they’re going to know that you got pregnant from someone. That’s up to you. I don’t know. We just need them to sign off consenting to the procedure.

CALLER: Oh. Okay.

CLINIC: Yeah. It’s a law. There’s nothing that we can really do about it.

CALLER: Well, could I get a pregnancy test without my parents having to know about that?

CLINIC: Yeah. You can get a pregnancy test. They’re the same that you buy in the store even.

CALLER: Oh, really?

CLINIC: Yeah.

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

CLINIC: I think that you still have to be 15 to do that.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: So what should I do then?

CLINIC: Well, I mean, you might just want to talk to your parents about what’s going on in your life.

CALLER: But they don’t ever listen to me. I mean, they don’t ever understand anything.

CLINIC: Maybe it’s just time that they know what’s going on with you. And maybe it will be hard for them at first, but a lot of times after just talking things through, people can be more understanding. I mean, do you know that you’re definitely pregnant? Have you taken a pregnancy test?

CALLER: Well, no. I just haven’t had my period since January 3rd, and I’m just really scared.

CLINIC: Right. Well, do you normally miss periods?

CALLER: Well, no.

CLINIC: Okay. Have you been feeling pregnant at all?

CALLER: I don’t know.

CLINIC: Do you feel nauseous or do you have any breast tenderness or anything like that?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Okay. Well, those would be signs of pregnancy, but not everybody feels like that when they’re pregnant. Some people don’t have any signs. So I guess the best thing for you to do would be to take a pregnancy test.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: If it’s positive and an abortion is what you want, then you definitely have to tell your parents, and they need to be with you.

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend’s 22. Is that not old enough to take care of it?

CLINIC: Your boyfriend is not your parent, and the abortion is for you. So that’s a whole different issue on its own, you being 14 and him being 22. I mean, that’s a totally separate issue. But he is not your parent.

CALLER: Oh. Well, I just have a lot of questions and I’m really confused. Could I call you back if I thought of anything else to ask? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Samantha, but anyone can answer your questions if I’m not available.

CALLER: Oh, okay. All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, thank you.

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: Bye.

CALLER: What do you mean? I was put on hold.

CLINIC: I’m sorry?

CALLER: I was just put on hold.

(Pause)

CLINIC: (Unclear).

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Well, how much does that cost?

CLINIC: It all depends on how far along you are and what your income is.

CALLER: Oh. Well, how do you know how far along you are?

CLINIC: Okay. Well, when was the first day of your last period?

CALLER: January 3rd.

CLINIC: Well, you’re under 12 weeks which is really our own criteria. Do you make under or over 30,000 a year?

CALLER: Well, I don’t have a job. I’m going to be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Oh, okay.

CALLER: Or later this month.

CLINIC: Then it would be 350.

CALLER: The thing is, my friend told me you guys would have to tell my parents, and I can’t let them know. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever it is, and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: Unfortunately you have to be 15. If you’re under 15, then your parents have to be informed.

CALLER: Is there any way not to have to tell them?

CLINIC: No, it’s a law that we have to have.

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend’s 22. Is that not old enough to take care of it?

CLINIC: Well, he’s not your guardian though.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: Yeah. Your parent or guardian has to sign.

CALLER: Do you think that there would be any way that I’m not pregnant?

CLINIC: Have you had a pregnancy test?

CALLER: Well, no. I just haven’t had my period for a while, and I’m just really worried.

CLINIC: Yeah. I would recommend that you get a pregnancy test done.

CALLER: Well, could I come there for that?

CLINIC: Yes, you can.

CALLER: Okay. Well, would you have to tell anybody about that if I was there for that though?

CLINIC: No, no.

CALLER: Well, how much does it cost to get a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: The pregnancy test is free.

CALLER: Oh, really?

CLINIC: Um-hmm.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: You would have to set up an appointment to do that. So you’d have to become a patient here, and then you would talk to a practitioner, and they could give you a prescription for birth control here.

CALLER: But does anybody have to know if I’m on birth control?

CLINIC: Not if you’re going to pay for it. I mean, if you’re going to pay for it with insurance, there’s a possibility that your parents may —

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend said that he would pay cash for everything. But is it all right if he’s there with me though?

CLINIC: Yeah, yeah, he can be here with you.

CALLER: It’s just we don’t want anyone to find out about us. Would you have to tell anybody about him?

CLINIC: No. Well, can you hold on for one second please?

CALLER: Okay.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Are you still there?

CALLER: I’m here.

CLINIC: Yeah. You can come in for an appointment, and we wouldn’t need to tell your parents. Did you want to make an appointment for a pregnancy screening?

CALLER: Well, I’d have to call my boyfriend. Could I call you back? What was your name?

CLINIC: Well, you can talk to anybody who is on the phone.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, what time are you guys normally open?

CLINIC: We’re open for 9 to 5.

CALLER: Do you guys do the pregnancy test whenever you’re open or do you have specific hours?

CLINIC: Yeah. You would have to make an appointment to get the pregnancy test.

CALLER: Oh, okay. But you guys do them —

CLINIC: All during the day.

CALLER: Okay. I just have to call my boyfriend and call back. Is that okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: (pause) How can I help you?

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t. We can give you a referral of places to go, but we don’t actually perform them here, no.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you have a number of a place then?

CLINIC: Sure, absolutely. Do you have a pen ready?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. We have — are you looking just in Springfield, or –

CALLER: Well, around Eugene actually.

CLINIC: Around Eugene okay?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: There is 342-5940, and that’s All Women’s Health Services.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And then All Women’s Care Associates is 342-8550, and those are the two places in Eugene.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, the thing is like — I’m going to be 14 next month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: We actually don’t tell anybody. I would probably call one of those two places and see what their guidelines are for how old you need to be. But your boyfriend’s not your guardian, and especially since he is older and you’re that much younger it’s mandatory to report that by state law if he was to be your guardian because technically that’s statutory rape.

CALLER: But what do you mean? I mean, he’s not raping me. We’re in love. We’re going to get married.

CLINIC: I know. I’m not saying it’s wrong, but I’m just saying by law because you’re so young and he’s over — especially over 18. He’s 22?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: If you report that to them, then it’s mandatory for them to report that because technically by law that is statutory rape. So I don’t think that that would work as far as him being your guardian to sign for you.

CALLER: Oh. So what should I do then?

CLINIC: Well, that I don’t know, but I think probably the best thing not to do would be to tell them — I mean, unless you’re wanting to get into something legal as far as from the state for statutory rape from him.

CALLER: Well, no.

CLINIC: Yeah. I wouldn’t tell them that then. I would probably just call and see if there has to be an age limit, and if so does it have to be your guardian who signs for you or can somebody else sign for you.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: But if somebody else can sign for you, don’t let it be your 22-year-old boyfriend.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? (laughs) Just a word to the wise.

CALLER: Well, okay. Well, the thing — the main reason why I’m worried about all this is because I haven’t had my period since like December 26, and I’m just really scared.

CLINIC: You haven’t even had a positive pregnancy test yet?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Okay. I think that would be probably be step one.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: You’re not going to get abortion until you know that you’re pregnant.

CALLER: Well, could I come in there for that?

CLINIC: Yeah, you can. Yeah. How about you just drop in before 7:00 tonight, and we could do that service for you?

CALLER: Okay. Well, my boyfriend would have to bring me. Would that be all right, or –

CLINIC: Yeah, it’s okay. He can bring you.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: But would he get in trouble?

CLINIC: We don’t report things unless you want us to report them, but like I was saying, if you were wanting to get an abortion done and if you were wanting him to sign for you, then that could lead to trouble. But as far as –

CALLER: Well, he would have to pay for it. Would they have to have him sign anything then?

CLINIC: You know, I don’t really know how their facility works.

CALLER: Well, I mean, like to get the pregnancy test?

CLINIC: For him? No. We have a funding program that your services would be free, so you don’t have to worry about cost.

CALLER: Oh. Okay.

CLINIC: You know, unless you tell somebody in the room when they call you back for your pregnancy test, I don’t want to be with him, then that’s the only way we would report it. But abortion, that’s a different story.

CALLER: Oh. Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control the same, like tonight?

CLINIC: Not tonight, no. We’d need to set up an appointment, but we could get it for you pretty soon.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: But would anybody have to know if I was on birth control?

CLINIC: Nope. It’s completely confidential.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, if I had any other questions like I need to call him and tell him when to come in tonight, but could I call you if I had any other questions? What was your name?

CLINIC: Certainly. My name’s Dana.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And I’ll be here until 8:00, but don’t forget we do stop seeing people at 7:00 tonight.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, could I ask you a question real quick?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: It’s just — I was — I’m just worried about all this because like well — I’ll be 14 years old next month, 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: Okay. Well, we — have you had a pregnancy test yet?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: No. Okay –

CALLER: I just haven’t had my period since like December 26, and I’m scared.

CLINIC: Okay. So what you would want to do is come in and have the pregnancy test with us.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: It is completely confidential. I am going to suggest to you that you do not say when you come how old your boyfriend is.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: You don’t have him come with you because we would have to report that.

CALLER: Why?

CLINIC: Why? Because it’s illegal.

CALLER: Oh. Well –

CLINIC: For him to be having sexual relationship with you. It’s illegal.

CALLER: But if he doesn’t come in you don’t have to say anything?

CLINIC: Do not say to anyone here how old your boyfriend is.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: If you say that, then we’ll have to report it.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: So come in and have a pregnancy test, and if it’s positive then we will talk to you about what your options are, and we’ll give you information, you know, whatever information you might need.

CALLER: Okay. Well, what if it wasn’t positive? Could I get birth control?

CLINIC: Yes, you could.

CALLER: I just don’t want to have to go through all this again, so.

CLINIC: Yeah. You know, I think you’re very wise.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, it’s just — the thing is, I can’t drive. I don’t know how I would get there to pick up the birth control, or whatever.

CLINIC: Well, get here however you can. Just don’t bring your boyfriend in here.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And don’t say anything.

CALLER: Okay. But if I was on birth control, would you have to tell anybody then?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh, okay. It’s just — I have a lot of questions and I don’t — I just don’t know what to do.

CLINIC: Yeah. I think the best place to start is here.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: To give you a pregnancy test and get you set up on some birth control.

CLINIC: Good afternoon. Planned Parenthood.

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

CLINIC: No, we do not.

CALLER: Oh. Well, do you know of any place that might?

CLINIC: Do you know how far along you are?

CALLER: Well, no. I’m just really worried because I haven’t had my period since like December 26, and I’m scared.

CLINIC: You want to come in and take a pregnancy test?

CALLER: Well, yeah.

CLINIC: You can do that.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay? We do them on a walk-in basis between 9:00 and 4:00.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — like it’s just, the thing is, I’ll be 14 next month. And my friend said 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: How old are you?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 next month.

CLINIC: Okay. Just come in and take a pregnancy test, and we’re not required to tell your parents.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, it’s just me and my boyfriend were talking about all this, and we don’t want a whole bunch of people to know about us, so if he was there to — like he said he would pay for everything, but would he have to sign anything?

CLINIC: I don’t know. That’s up to them down there.

CALLER: Well, like for the pregnancy test?

CLINIC: No. It’s your signature.

CALLER: Oh. Okay.

CLINIC: You come in.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, how soon would you be able to tell me if I was pregnant or not?

CLINIC: When you come in and do the urine test.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant could I get birth control?

CLINIC: We need to set up an appointment for that.

CALLER: Oh, well, how long does it take for that?

CLINIC: We could get you in tomorrow morning for an appointment for that.

CALLER: Oh, really?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Okay. But you wouldn’t have to tell anybody that I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: It’s just, I don’t want to have to go through all this again, so.

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: Well, I just have a lot of questions. I can’t really think of right now. Could I call you back if I thought up something? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name’s Tammy, but you need to talk to a counselor. The only thing I could suggest to do is probably to come in and take a pregnancy test. They can go over your questions, and then they can if you’re not, set you up with an appointment to get you started on birth control.

CALLER: Oh. All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All righty.

CALLER: Well, if I had to get an abortion, would I have to tell my parents?

CLINIC: I don’t know. I don’t know. You’d have to talk to them down there.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Where they do it.

CALLER: So what was the number for the other place?

CLINIC: Well, I need to know how far along you are. There’s different numbers for — it’s just depending on how far along you are. I would suggest that you come in and take a pregnancy test and then –

CALLER: Well, my last period was like December 26.

CLINIC: Okay. Have you taken a pregnancy test?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Okay. Hold on.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: (pause) Okay, you’re about 9 weeks according to our — so I can give you some phone numbers.

CALLER: So what does that — okay. Well, what does that mean if I’m 9 weeks?

CLINIC: 9 weeks pregnant according to your last period.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? They’re all in Ashland.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: 488-3221. 482-6060. 482-5853. 482-3327.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: You don’t want to come in and take one here?

CALLER: Well, yeah.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: I just need to call my boyfriend to see when he can get the time off to bring me, but.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: So what were your hours again?

CLINIC: Our walk-in hours are from 9:00 to 4:00.

CLINIC: Good afternoon. Planned Parenthood.

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Oh. Well, how much does that cost?

CLINIC: It’s $350.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Are you calling for yourself?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Okay, and have you done a pregnancy test at a clinic yet?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Nope? Just a home one?

CALLER: No. I just haven’t had my period since like December 26, so I’m scared.

CLINIC: Right. I guess the first step is to come in for a pregnancy test.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And then we can go over, you know –

CALLER: Well, it’s just the thing is, I’m going to be 14 in March, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: Actually the Oregon law states that if you’re under the age of 15 you have to have parental consent to have a surgery.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: You can come in and do the pregnancy test and stuff like that. We don’t need to inform your parents. So we could start off that way, and kind of go from there.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: So is there any way not to have to tell my parents though?

CLINIC: I don’t think to have the procedure. I mean, there might be a different state that would allow it, but I doubt it.

CALLER: Okay. Well, it’s just, my parents can’t find out at all. I mean, I don’t know what they would do if I told them.

CLINIC: Right. Well, a good thing is to make sure that you’re actually pregnant first.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: A pregnancy test.

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

CLINIC: Not if you came up for the pregnancy test. The only thing is, we couldn’t do the surgery without getting your parents consent, and wouldn’t call them and tell them. You know, and tell — I mean, we wouldn’t call them and tell them. We just couldn’t do the surgery unless they were, they signed the consent form.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: But you can come in for a pregnancy test and to talk to us and stuff without your parents’ knowledge.

CALLER: Do you think like anybody else could do it without my parents knowing?

CLINIC: Nobody in Oregon can.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: I mean, it’s Oregon state law.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: So. But –

CALLER: Well, what about California?

CLINIC: You know, I’m not sure. I don’t — you know. That would be something you’d have to call someplace there and find out what their state law says.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: Yep, and we wouldn’t have to tell your parents if you wanted birth control.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Yep.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, what time do you normally do the pregnancy tests?

CLINIC: You know, you could come in. If you wanted to come in today you could come in until about 5:15 or tomorrow between 9:00 and 4:30.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I have to call my boyfriend to see, but if I had any other questions could I call and talk to you? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name’s Joanna.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: All right, thanks.

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: Bye.

CLINIC: Bye.
