(Dialing, phone ringing 1x)

CLINIC: Utah Women’s Clinic.

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

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

CLINIC: If you are under 12 weeks it’s 450.

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

CLINIC: We start counting from the first day of your last menstrual period.

CALLER: Oh. Well, that was like January 3rd.

CLINIC: January 3rd?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Yeah, you’re under 12 weeks.

CALLER: The thing 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. Could he just sign whatever it is, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: How old you are? I’m sorry.

CALLER: I’m 13. I’ll be 14 on the 20th.

CLINIC: We need to have one of your parents here.

CALLER: Oh, really?

CLINIC: Yeah.

CALLER: Is there any way not to have my parents there? I mean, I can’t tell them at all.

CLINIC: No. But if you want I can give you the phone number in other state. You can talk to them about it.

CALLER: In another state?

CLINIC: Yeah, because here in Junta you need to bring one of your parents with you. That’s a problem. So you want it?

CALLER: Yes, please.

CLINIC: Dr. (unclear) Ambrino (ph). The phone number is 1-775-827-0616. Let me give you in Colorado. It’s 1-800-535-1287.

CALLER: Could I come in there for a pregnancy test though?

CLINIC: Yeah, you can come to the clinic.

CALLER: Would you have to tell anybody then?

CLINIC: No, not for a pregnancy test.

CALLER: The thing is, me and my boyfriend were talking about all this, and he said that he would pay for everything, but we don’t want anybody to know about us. Would he have to sign anything if he was paying for the pregnancy test?

CLINIC: The pregnancy test is free.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: The abortion is the one you have to have one of the parents with you.

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

CLINIC: Yeah, we can do that.

CALLER: Would you have to tell anybody about birth control though?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh, okay. I can’t drive. Would my boyfriend be able to pick up the pills if I had birth control?

CLINIC: No, you need to come and see the doctor.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Yeah, we make appointment to see the doctor. Probably they’ll be free for you, but you need to see the doctor.

CALLER: All right. I need to talk to my boyfriend and see if he had any questions. If I had any other questions, could I call and ask —

CLINIC: Just call me back, all right?

CALLER: What was your name?

CLINIC: Mariam (ph).

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right. Thank you. Bye bye.

Please hold for the operator.

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood.

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

CLINIC: We actually don’t, but I can give you the numbers of clinics that do.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: You have a pen?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: The Utah Women’s Clinic is 531-9192. And the Mountain View Women’s Center, 272-5289. And Wasach (sp) is 263-2111.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know, like my friend told me that since like I’m going to be 14 in March that they would have to tell my parents I’m getting an abortion. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: You know what? I’m not exactly sure of the laws on that, so I wouldn’t want to give you the wrong information. But I think that you do have to have parental consent at your age. I would call each clinic and see what the laws are on that. Don’t trust me for that answer. They do the abortions there, and so they’ll know for sure. Okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — like I’m just really concerned about all this because I haven’t had my period since like December 21st, and I don’t know what to do.

CLINIC: Right.

CALLER: But could I come in there for a pregnancy test to see?

CLINIC: Yeah, you can. And also the Utah Women’s Clinic, the first number I gave you — well, each of these clinics will obviously do a pregnancy test. But I know for a fact that the Utah Women’s Clinic does free testing.

CALLER: Oh. Well, my friend said to come to you guys, so.

CLINIC: Yeah, you can do either one.

CALLER: And my boyfriend said he would pay for everything, so.

CLINIC: For the pregnancy test here it’s $10 if you want to come to us, and you can do that before 7:00 p.m. tonight.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: But like the thing is, me and my boyfriend were talking about all this, and we don’t want anyone to know about us. If he was paying for it would he have to sign anything?

CLINIC: No. If you come in and do the pregnancy test with us, we don’t have to report necessarily.

CALLER: Report?

CLINIC: You can come in — report.

CALLER: What do you mean report?

CLINIC: When I mean report I mean you don’t have to have parental consent to come in here and get a pregnancy test.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: So bring your boyfriend in, come and get it, $10, and we don’t tell anybody. The abortion might be a different story. You’d have to check with their clinics.

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

CLINIC: Yeah, and that would be a separate appointment that we would have to make for that.

CALLER: Well, how long would it take to get birth control?

CLINIC: Depending on where our book is right now it would probably be a couple days out.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, would you have to tell anybody if I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: Well, that’s actually kind of different than a pregnancy test. If the clinician — the clinician will be taking you back and talking with you about your situation. If she feels there’s something going on that doesn’t sound right to here, then she does need to report.

CALLER: Like what?

CLINIC: Like someone being a lot older than you that you’re having intercourse with. I’m not the one to make that call. The clinician would. So it’s just up to each clinician.

CALLER: Well, is it bad if like my boyfriend’s 22?

CLINIC: Actually, that might be one the case you might want to call, because that’s quite a bit older than — you know, as far as the state’s concerned. I’m not saying that you’re in a wrong situation. But that might be kind of a difference in age that they would be concerned about.

CALLER: Well, who would she have to report it to if she was –

CLINIC: It’s the Child Protective Services.

CALLER: Well, would my boyfriend get in trouble?

CLINIC: These are all questions you’d have to ask the clinician, and she’d be talking to you about it. It wouldn’t be out of your hands completely. But it is something to keep in mind if you come in to us for an appointment. We try and keep things confidential, but if it’s something the clinician feels a bad feeling about then she might want to — she might call and report it.

CALLER: So I shouldn’t tell her anything?

CLINIC: Well, that is true. You could, you could do that if you wanted to.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: So, you could change his age or something if you feel that you need to.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Don’t tell anyone I said that. (laughs)

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Come in for the pregnancy test, and if it’s negative we can make an appointment for the birth control.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, you’ve been a lot of help. If I had any other questions could I call and talk to you? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name’s Audrey (Aubrey?).

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Bye.
