CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. This is Jennifer.

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t do that at this clinic.

CALLER: Do you know of any place that does?

CLINIC: Yeah. Let me give you a number.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: 736-2262.

CALLER: Okay. Where is that exactly?

CLINIC: The Babcock Center.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, do you know if like — I’m just worried because like — well, my friend told me that they would — like I’m going to be 14 in March, and she said that they would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of everything and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: Yeah. That’s fine.

CALLER: It is?

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: Okay. Well, could I come in there for like a pregnancy test though?

CLINIC: Yeah. It’s $10 for urine, $25 for blood.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, if there’s like any way that I could — like if it said that I wasn’t pregnant, would you guys be able to do birth control?

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: Yeah?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

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

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: Okay. It’s just my boyfriend said that he would pay for everything, but he doesn’t want to sign anything. Would he need to sign anything or answer any questions?

CLINIC: Hold on. (pause) Okay, thank you for holding. May I help you?

CALLER: Oh, yeah. Are you — I was just talking to Jennifer. Are you Jennifer?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay. How old are you?

CALLER: I’m going to be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Okay. So you’re 13 right now or 12?

CALLER: I’m 13.

CLINIC: Okay. We’re going to have to report that.

CALLER: What do you mean? Who would you have to report it to?

CLINIC: Anybody that is under 14 we have to report it.

CALLER: Oh. Well, what would happen? What am I supposed to do? I mean, would they tell my parents? I mean, my parents can’t find out at all. I don’t, I don’t know what they would do if they found out.

CLINIC: Okay. Yeah. It would be reported to the police.

CALLER: Well, why?

CLINIC: Because you’re under 14.

CALLER: Oh. Well, well, but — what, would I go to jail?

CLINIC: I don’t know. Just a minute. Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: (pause) Hello? This is Esther.

CALLER: Hi.

CLINIC: Okay. You wanted to know why we had to report it?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. Because you’re a minor. According to the law you’re a minor, and if you were to come in here with your boyfriend, we’d have to call the police.

CALLER: Well, what would happen? What should I do?

CLINIC: Well, what do you need to come in for, ma’am?

CALLER: Well, I mean, I don’t know if I was pregnant or not. I was wanting to come in and get a pregnancy test. I’m just scared because I haven’t had my period since like December 21st.

CLINIC: I see.

CALLER: I just don’t know what to do.

CLINIC: Well, you know, all I — you know, I can’t tell you want to do. I mean, you could buy a pregnancy test over the counter, but –

CALLER: Are those usually right?

CLINIC: Oh, yeah, they’re accurate. But what are you going to do after that? Have you talked to your mother about this?

CALLER: No. She can’t find out at all. I mean, if she found out I don’t know what would happen.

CLINIC: Well, you know, if you came in here, we would have to report it like I said, and your boyfriend would probably get arrested.

CALLER: Well, why would he get arrested? I mean –

CLINIC: It’s statutory rape according to the law.

CALLER: But he’s not raping me. I mean, we’re in love. We’re going to get married. He’s going to take care of me forever.

CLINIC: Yeah. Well, you know, but that’s the law, ma’am. We don’t make the laws. But we have to abide by them.

CALLER: Well, so there’s just nothing I can do?

CLINIC: I don’t know how to advise you, dear.

CALLER: Well, well, what if I took like the home pregnancy test and it said that I wasn’t pregnant? Could I come in and get birth control?

CLINIC: We would still have to report it because of your age.

CALLER: Oh. Well, even if like I’m going to be 14 in March. Would that make any difference?

CLINIC: That might make some difference. I think it’s 13 and under.

CALLER: Oh. So like I could come in for a birth control after I’m 14?

CLINIC: You could probably, uh-huh.

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

CLINIC: I don’t think so.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: But meanwhile if your test is negative, you know, you could have your boyfriend use condoms.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: All right.

CALLER: Well, what was your name again?

CLINIC: Esther.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay, thanks.

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: No. Um-um. You’re 13?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: And how old is your boyfriend?

CALLER: He’s 22.

CLINIC: 22. No, it doesn’t matter. They will have to — you have to go over there to the clinic. You have to go the clinic and they have to do like your paperwork and stuff, and you have to go to court. You have to go to court and you have to get some papers from court saying that you want to have an abortion and that you don’t want your parents to find out.

CALLER: Oh. Well, how much does it cost to go to court?

CLINIC: That doesn’t cost you a thing.

CALLER: Oh, really?

CLINIC: Um-hum. When you go to that location on Babcock they’re going to give you more information about it. There’s this lady there who’s in charge of that. Her name is Rachel. She’ll be the one be able to tell you more information how about you do, what is it that you do. Even though your boyfriend’s — did you say 22?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: It doesn’t matter. He can’t sign for you. It has to be your parents.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: And does your mom know that you’re with him?

CALLER: Well, she knows we’re going out, but she doesn’t know we’re having sex. I mean, if they found out about that I don’t know what they would do.

CLINIC: Yeah. So the best thing for you to do is just call them and make an appointment because before you go to court the court people will have to tell you, you have to make sure that you already went to Planned Parenthood and you already got all your papers ready. The best thing for you to do, call them and make an appointment so you could go.

CALLER: Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: Where?

CALLER: Where you’re at?

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: My boyfriend said to go to you guys. It’s just, I’m just really scared because I haven’t had a period since like December 21st, and I don’t know what to do.

CLINIC: Yeah, you could come in and get a pregnancy test if you want and then from there we could just get you an appointment here to make your paperwork, but you have to go over there for the abortion itself.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, would you guys have to tell anybody that I was getting a pregnancy test there?

CLINIC: No. Um-um.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: The best thing for you to do — that way you could get everything done over there — they’ll probably just be better for you to go over there. That way you could talk to Rachel and she’ll give you the papers so you could go to court.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, do you know, like if I — when I get a pregnancy test if it came out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control though?

CLINIC: Yeah. Um-hum.

CALLER: Well, would anybody have to say anything about me being on birth control?

CLINIC: No. Nobody’s going to say anything.

CALLER: Well, do you know– like if my boyfriend can come with me if they would have to say anything? He was going to pay for everything, so –

CLINIC: Oh, don’t worry about that. Only about the abortion, yeah, you do have to get those court papers.

CALLER: Okay. But they wouldn’t have to say anything about my boyfriend?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: It’s just we don’t want anyone to know about us. SO.

CLINIC: No, that’s fine.

CALLER: All right.
