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: 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.
