CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. This is Lisa. How can I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there?
CLINIC: Not this clinic, ma’am, but the one on Babcock. You want the number over there?
CALLER: Yes, please.
CLINIC: Okay, it isn’t Planned Parenthood, however. It’s 736-3262.
CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — like I’m going to be 14 in March. My friend — I’m just worried because like my friend said that they would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: You would have to ask them because they’re the ones that take care of it.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test though?
CLINIC: Yeah, the pregnancy test, the urine is $10 and the blood is $25.
CALLER: Okay. Well, would you have to tell anybody that I was getting a pregnancy test though?
CLINIC: No. Uh-uh.
CALLER: Okay. Well, my boyfriend said that, like we were talking about all this, and he said that he would pay for everything. Would it be all right if he was there with me?
CLINIC: Can you hold on for one second?
CLINIC: Okay, ma’am? Pay for what, ma’am?
CALLER: The pregnancy test and everything.
CLINIC: Oh, that’s fine.
CALLER: Really? Well, would he — would you guys have to talk to him or ask him any questions? He just — we just don’t want anyone to know about us, so.
CLINIC: You just get the $10 and you can come in for the pregnancy test.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, if it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control too?
CLINIC: You could. However, you would need an appointment for that.
CALLER: Oh, okay. But would you have to tell my parents I was on birth control?
CLINIC: No. Um-um. It’s confidential.
CALLER: Oh, okay. So, okay.
CALLER: Well, do you know — like how much does it cost for a birth control actually?
CLINIC: How old are you?
CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.
CLINIC: It would just be a donation because there wouldn’t be any charges for you.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, if I was on birth control, would my boyfriend be able to pick up the pills? Because I can’t drive. He’d be the only way that I could get them.
CLINIC: Yeah, as long as you were to put him down.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Okay.
