CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. Can I help you?

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

CLINIC: No, we do not.

CALLER: Do you know anywhere that would?

CLINIC: Yeah. We have — if you come in and have a positive pregnancy test we give you a list of places to go.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And there’s a place in Pittsburgh that’s like — we’re an affiliate of that place.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: But we don’t do them here.

CALLER: Okay. Well, like my friend told me that you guys have to tell my parents before I can have an abortion. Is that true?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: No? Okay. Because like my parents can’t find out at all because, well the problem is like my boyfriend’s 22, and we’re going to get married and move out, but they hate him because they think that he’s too old for me, so.

CLINIC: How old are you?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: (silence) The best I can do right now is if you want to come in and have a pregnancy test we can do that here.

CALLER: Okay. They wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay. Well, what if like I wasn’t pregnant. Do you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: We sure do.

CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody about that either?

CLINIC: Nope.

CALLER: Okay. Like, well the main reason why I’m worried about it is because my last period was like the first week in December, so I’m just — I don’t know what to do.

CLINIC: Do you want to come in today for a test?

CALLER: Well, I can’t come in today. I have to get my boyfriend to bring me and he’s at work.

CLINIC: What time does he get off work?

CALLER: He gets off at 5:00.

CLINIC: We’re here until 6:00. Can you be here at 5:30?

CALLER: Well, I’d have to see, but I think so, maybe.

CLINIC: Okay. Try to get here at 5:30.

CALLER: All right. Is it all right if like I think of any more questions to call you back?

CLINIC: Yeah. What you need to do is pee in a cup though and bring it in with you.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: First of December. Even if you don’t bring it, you’ll probably be able to pee in a cup here because it would have been long enough. Our test should pick it up.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All righty?

CALLER: Okay. And you guys like wouldn’t have to tell anybody, right?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay. So it’s all right if like my boyfriend brings me and everything?

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Be here for 5:30, no later, because we leave at 6:00.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right?

CALLER: Okay. So is it all right if I call you back and ask you any more questions if I have any?

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: Okay. What was your name?

CLINIC: Michelle.

CALLER: Michelle?

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: Okay. Thanks.

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: Bye.

CLINIC: Bye bye.

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. Could you hold, please?

CALLER: Sure.

CLINIC: How can I help you?

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

CLINIC: If we do what? I’m sorry.

CALLER: Abortions?

CLINIC: Bushings?

CALLER: Like an abortion?

CLINIC: Oh! I’m sorry. I didn’t understand. Are you on a cell phone?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Oh, okay. I was just wondering why it sounded like a little crackle. Yeah, at the Warminster Office.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And would you like to give them a call?

CALLER: Yeah. What’s their phone number?

CLINIC: I got it right here. 215-957-7980.

CALLER: 7980?

CLINIC: Correct, and what you’ll need to do is, if you’re closer — do you live close — like at the Bentel Maria (ph)?

CALLER: I live in Phoenixville.

CLINIC: Then you’re closer to — whichever Planned Parenthood you’re closest to you would have to do a compliance visit and then wait. There’s a 24-hour waiting period in the state of Pennsylvania for the procedure.

CALLER: Is it okay if I come there because like I just don’t want anyone to see me.

CLINIC: To, you mean, the Warminster office?

CALLER: Huh? To where you’re at.

CLINIC: You can come to any Planned Parenthood for the counseling.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And take the pregnancy test. They determine how long you’re pregnant, so on and so forth.

CALLER: Do you know if there’s like an age requirement for being — or having an abortion? Because like I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: No. I think that that’s fine.

CALLER: Okay. And they wouldn’t have to tell my parents or anybody?

CLINIC: No. No.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: It’s completely anonymous.

CALLER: It’s just I can’t tell my parents at all because like, well my boyfriend’s 22 and we’re going to get married and we’re in love, but like my parents hate him because they think he’s too old for me, so.

CLINIC: I see, yeah. No, that should not be a problem at all.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And, but I would call the Warminster office if you have any questions about the procedure itself.

CALLER: Okay. Well, like do you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody about that?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: All right. Would it be okay if my boyfriend brings me and everything?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: Because he’d be the only way that I could get there, so.

CLINIC: Yes. That’s no problem.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Is it all right if I call you back? Like I have to ask him a question but –

CLINIC: Well, if you’re coming in for a pregnancy test, you don’t need an appointment.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: You just come in, have the pregnancy test done, and then they’ll, you know, give you the information that you would need if you decide that if you are pregnant and you should decide to do the procedure.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Take it from there.

CALLER: Well, is it all right if I talk to you later? It’s just –

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: If I could talk to my mom like I can talk to you it would be — my life would be so much easier. But like what was your name?

CLINIC: Terry.

CALLER: Terry?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: All right. Okay, thanks.

CLINIC: You’re welcome.

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: Bye.

CALLER: Bye.
