CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. Federal Way. This is Kathy. How can I help you?

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do. We provide abortion services on Wednesdays only.

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

CLINIC: Our usual and customary fee is about $650. You may be eligible for a discount based on income and family size.

CALLER: Oh. The thing is, I’m going to be — I’ll be 14 like later on this month, and I don’t have any income. But my boyfriend’s 22. He has a job. Could he just pay for it?

CLINIC: Um-hum. So are you — how far along are you?

CALLER: I’m not really sure. I just — the main reason why I’m worried about all this is because I haven’t had my period since like December 26. So. We’re just really worried.

CLINIC: Where is my little calendar? Have you had a pregnancy test yet?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Well, that’s probably the first thing you should do is come in and get a pregnancy test.

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

CLINIC: They’re free.

CALLER: Oh. Okay.

CLINIC: So if you want to come in today, we’re doing them until 4:00 on a walk-in basis.

CALLER: Well, would you have to tell anybody if I was there for that?

CLINIC: No. Uh-uh.

CALLER: Okay. It’s just, my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But would you really have to, or –

CLINIC: No. Not in the state of Washington.

CALLER: Oh, okay. All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, so what time are you doing the pregnancy test?

CLINIC: Until 4:00.

CALLER: Today?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right?

CALLER: Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control today?

CLINIC: Well, we would have to schedule an appointment for you to be seen by the clinician.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: Yeah. That’s prescription drug, so you have to be seen by a medical provider, and we don’t do that on a walk-in basis.

CALLER: Oh. But if I was on birth control, would you have to tell anybody then?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: All righty?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: Well –

CLINIC: Yeah?

CALLER: (laughs) I just have a lot of questions. Are you guys open tomorrow if I can’t come in today?

CLINIC: No, we’re not. We’ll be open again on Monday, and we do that from 9:30 to 1;00 and then again from 2:00 to 5:00.

CALLER: Okay. Are you open like during the lunch hour?

CLINIC: We are open, but we don’t do that during the lunch hour because our employees need to go to lunch too.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay> Thanks.

(Phone ringing 1x)

CLINIC: Good morning, Planned Parenthood. This is Beth.

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

CLINIC: At our Tacoma Clinic. And that number is 779-3900.

CALLER: Okay. I’m just worried. I’m going to be 14 this month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it, and you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: Well, 22 is a little bit too old for a 14-year-old.

CALLER: What do you mean?

CLINIC: It’s against the law.

CALLER: Why?

CLINIC: Because he’s an adult and you’re a minor.

CALLER: So would he get in trouble?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: Well, what kind of trouble?

CLINIC: Well, like I said, it’s against the law for that.

CALLER: Well, what could happen?

CLINIC: Well, I don’t know what would happen. He could be charged.

CALLER: For what?

CLINIC: Because you’re under age. You’re a child in the eyes of the court.

CALLER: I’ll be 14.

CLINIC: (Chuckles) You’re still a child in the eyes of the court. That’s how that is, and it would be against the law.

CALLER: Well, what can I do?

CLINIC: Well, you need to —

CALLER: I mean, I don’t want him to get in trouble.

CLINIC: Well, he should be.

CALLER: Why?

CLINIC: Because he should be. Anyway, what you need to do is find out first — do you know if you’re pregnant?

CALLER: Well, not really. I just haven’t had my period since December 26th, and I’m just scared.

CLINIC: Well, what you need to do is come in for a pregnancy test first.

CALLER: But if I come in you would get my boyfriend in trouble?

CLINIC: I didn’t say that. I’m just telling you what could be repercussions of all this.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: We’re giving pregnancy tests — you won’t be able to do it until Tuesday, Tuesday at 10:30 to 12:30 in the morning.

CALLER: Well, how much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: There’s no charge.

CALLER: Oh. But would you have to tell anybody if I was there for that?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh, all right. Well, if I got the pregnancy test and I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes, you can.

CALLER: But would you have to tell anybody about that?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh, okay. My parents can’t find out at all. They know me and my boyfriend —

CLINIC: He is an adult and you are a minor. Like I said, it’s against the law.

CALLER: Well, would you have to tell my parents?

CLINIC: No. I’m telling you.

CALLER: What should I do then?

CLINIC: Well, I can’t tell you what to do. I would recommend that you come in for a pregnancy test if you’re concerned about being pregnant.

CALLER: But would anyone get in trouble if I was there though?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: All right. Okay. But if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant I could get birth control and nobody would have to know anything?

CLINIC: That’s correct.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Do you think it’s possible that I’m not pregnant though?

CLINIC: Well, I have no idea. I’d have to have you tested first.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: So if you can try to come in next week we’ll give you a free pregnancy test, and we’ll go from there and see what happens.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All righty.

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: Bye bye.

CLINIC: Olympia Planned Parenthood. Can you hold, please?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Hi. How can I help you?

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

CLINIC: We don’t at this clinic. Are you looking for a place in Olympia that does?

CALLER: Well, yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. I can tell you about the two that do. One is called Eastside Women’s Health. It’s on Eastside Street, right down Helm. The other is called Sound Choice. And you can look both of them up in the phone book.

Have you already had a pregnancy test?

CALLER: No, I just haven’t had my period since December 26th, and I’m just worried about it.

CLINIC: Well, we do do free pregnancy tests.

CALLER: Oh, really?

CLINIC: Yeah. And if you come in for those and it does turn out that you’re pregnant, we can give you a referral to one of the places that do abortions.

CALLER: Well, the thing is, I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of everything, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: We don’t have to tell anybody in any case.

CALLER: Oh, really?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Even if I was getting an abortion?

CLINIC: Yeah. Well, we don’t do abortions, so we wouldn’t deal with abortion.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, I was actually just wanting to find out if I was pregnant so I could come in there.

CLINIC: Yeah, you can. We usually only do pregnancy tests in the morning. But if you feel like you really can’t wait until Monday, then it’s okay.

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

CLINIC: Yes, you can.

CALLER: Could I get it like the same day?

CLINIC: Probably if you think you’re going to want to do it that way I think the best would be to wait until Monday because we’re going to be really busy this afternoon. Can you wait until Monday?

CALLER: I think so. But if I got birth control, would anybody have to know about that though?

CLINIC: No. Let me put it this way. We don’t check on how old you are. You don’t have to provide proof. So you’re as old as you tell us you are.

CALLER: Well, the thing is, I can’t drive yet. Would my boyfriend be able to pick up the birth control pills?

CLINIC: Yes. If you sign that it’s okay, then he can.

CALLER: Oh, okay. I need to talk to him to see if he can bring me in. Could I call and talk to you if I had any other questions? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Karen, and you absolutely can. Anybody who works up here can answer questions for you. I should let you know about one other thing.

CALLER: What’s that?

CLINIC: In the state of Washington if you are under age and your boyfriend’s 22, that’s considered statutory rape.

CALLER: But what is — he’s not raping me. I mean, we’re in love. We’re going to get married.

CLINIC: I know. That’s the way the law is written, and it’s not a matter of whether or not you consent. I’m just telling you because if you come in and you tell us that, we’re required by the law to tell Social Services about that.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: So I’m just letting you know what all your options are. So you can come in and get that pregnancy test if you want to.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay. Thanks.

CLINIC: Bye.

CALLER: Well, how much does that cost?

CLINIC: It’s free.

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

CLINIC: No. There’s the steps that you could carry through on confidentiality.

CALLER: The only thing is I can’t drive. Would my boyfriend be able to pick up the pills?

CLINIC: Yes. You could make him the person that could pick up your pills for you.

CALLER: Okay. Would you have to say anything about him?

CLINIC: Here in Yakima Valley?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Do you have proof of pregnancy?

CALLER: Well, I just haven’t had my period since like December 26. So I’m just worried about it.

CLINIC: Okay. There is a clinic here. There’s other providers, but you do need referrals for that in order for you to go in to have that done — if you are pregnant. But we can schedule an appointment for a pregnancy test if you’d like.

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

CLINIC: You sure can.

CALLER: Okay. But would you have to — it’s just, the thing is –

CLINIC: We would do the pregnancy test first.

CALLER: The thing is, I’m going to be 14 next month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of everything and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: We don’t — we are Planned Parenthood. We are strictly confidential. We don’t tell your parents.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: Unless you want us to, but we don’t. Like say for instance your mom called to say, well my daughter was in there you know. I’m sorry. We can’t — you know. If she says, you know, can you look, or whatever, we cannot. We won’t tell anybody anything unless we have something in writing from you.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okaying us, saying you can tell Dr. So and So what was done at my visit here with us. But unless we have written consent from you, we do not give any information out to anyone.

CALLER: Okay. It’s just me and my boyfriend were talking about all this, and he said that he was going to pay for everything, but we just don’t want anyone to know about us. So like if he was paying for it would he have to sign anything?

CLINIC: Being that we don’t do the abortions here, we have — and being that you’re pregnant and you need, you want to have an abortion, we can give you referrals for like medical coupons.

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: And the medical coupon would pay for that service so your boyfriend wouldn’t have to pay for it. The state would.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So –

CALLER: But would the state have to, would the state know and have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No. Not at all.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: No. Your parents don’t find out about that. Of course, when you come in if you do qualify for medical coupons then if you don’t — they’ll probably send them to you in the mail so one think you would want to remember is, don’t put the address, your home parents address. Put your boyfriend’s address.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: That way they go to his house and not to your house.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And you’re 14?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 on the 9th.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And we are strictly confidential. Let me mention that again.

CALLER: Okay. If it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant and I was on birth control — it’s just the thing is I’m not old enough to drive yet. Could my boyfriend pick up the pills?

CLINIC: When you come in, you fill out a form, and then on the form it asks you, an alternate person like say for instance you can’t come in, you want to put him on there to pick up pills for you, then if you put it on there then, yes, he can come.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: We’re here between 1 and 5. And the sooner you get here the better it is because sometimes we get busy but sometimes we’re not. But the sooner that you can get here to be seen we’ll be able to see you for whatever visit you have today.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: I just wish I could talk to my mom like I talk to you.

CLINIC: Ohh. I’m sorry. You know, I wish you could. You know, it’s hard I know. Parents just can’t understand. But I don’t know. But you know, if you ever have any questions whether you come here or not in the future, you’re more than welcome to call and we always have counselors that are — we’re always willing to help even if you wanted a phone number for Safeway we’d be able to give that to you. We don’t — you know. You know, don’t — if you ever feel that you need to speak to someone you can always call and talk to someone here. You don’t even need to come in person. You can call on the phone.

CALLER: Could I call and talk to you if I thought of anything else?

CLINIC: Probably more in the range of $550 to $595.

CALLER: Okay. Do you know — I’m just kind of worried because like my friend — well I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it?

CLINIC: You’re 14 and your boyfriend’s 22?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Well, that I can’t really help you with. But, no, we don’t need parent. We don’t need parent consent in the state of Washington.

CALLER: Okay. So would anybody have to know about this then?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay. So could I come in there for like a pregnancy test just to make sure I was pregnant?

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: Okay. When do you normally do pregnancy tests?

CLINIC: You can come in this afternoon. What is your name?

CALLER: It’s Lisa.

CLINIC: Okay. Can you come in at 3:00?

CALLER: I think so. I’d have to call my boyfriend to see if he could bring me but –

CLINIC: What is your last name?

CALLER: It’s Carter.

CLINIC: Okay. We’ll see you then. It’s anywhere from $6 to $10 charge for this visit also.

CALLER: Well, do you know — like I’m just wondering, do you — if it came out that I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys have birth control there?

CLINIC: You can use condoms and stuff until we can get you for an exam if that were to be negative. You would have to have an exam before we do any birth control.

CALLER: Okay. Would anybody have to know if I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: Not if you want them to know, no.

CALLER: Okay. It’s just, the thing is, I can’t drive. Would my boyfriend be able to pick up the birth control pills?

CLINIC: We’ll discuss that with you when you come in if you’d like.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right. Well, I need to call my boyfriend to see if he can bring me in.

CLINIC: Call me back and let me know if you’re going to be able to or not.

CALLER: Okay. So what’s your name?

CLINIC: Dora or you can tell anybody here.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay, thanks.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Bye.

CLINIC: Good afternoon. Planned Parenthood.

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t. The closest place you could get one done would be in the Tri-Cities, and they only do first trimester.

CALLER: Okay. Do you have a number for that?

CLINIC: Uh-huh. It’s 783-2859.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, do you know — I’m just kind of worried because, well I’m going to be 14 later on this month. But my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22.

CLINIC: No.

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

CLINIC: No. You would actually be responsible for your own self. Your boyfriend couldn’t sign anything for you.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: If you wanted to get services through us, you could. We don’t release any information unless you give us permission to.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, it’s just the thing is, the main reason why I’m worried about all this is I haven’t had my period since like December 26, and I’m just scared.

CLINIC: Yeah. What I would probably do is go ahead and schedule an appointment to at least have a pregnancy test done.

CALLER: Could I come in and do that with you guys?

CLINIC: Well, yeah. Let me — hold on a second, okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: (pause)

CLINIC: — schedule an appointment?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Okay. We can go ahead and do that for you. Did you want to come in on Monday, have that done?

CALLER: I would have to call my boyfriend to see. But do you know like if the pregnancy test came out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: Uh-huh. We could go ahead and schedule an appointment and get you started on birth control. We would go over any birth control methods you were interested in and give you information on that. We would need to schedule an appointment for either to have a full exam or to have us just review your medical history and okay you for birth control. So if you want to check with him, you can do that and then you can just give me a call back and we can go ahead and schedule that.

CALLER: Okay. So what was your name?

CLINIC: Connie. And your options are as far as scheduling an appointment, Monday, Tuesdays or Thursdays.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? So check with him and then give us a call back.

CALLER: Well, if I was getting birth control, could — the thing is, I can’t drive yet. Could my boyfriend pick up the pills?

CLINIC: If you give us permission and you put his name on the form, he can.

CALLER: Okay. And nobody would have to know anything about it?

CLINIC: No, we don’t release information unless you give us permission to.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: Okay, thanks.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Bye bye.

CLINIC: Cayman Island Planned Parenthood. This is Cheryl.

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling to see — well, do you guys do abortions there?

CLINIC: Not here.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: No. We refer out to places on the mainland.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? What kind of information did you need? Did you need to come in and get any testing done, and for conformation?

CALLER: Well, I was just wondering if I could ask some questions really, like I’m just worried about all this because — well I’ll be 14 next month, and my friend told me that they would have to tell my parents I was 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: We have completely confidential means on taking care of that.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: And we also have programs that would cover the cost.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Especially because of your age.

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

CLINIC: Well, that’s very good. That’s very nice. (laughs) So we wouldn’t have to worry about that. Do you need to come in and get a confirmation though by getting a pregnancy test?

CALLER: Well, I just — I don’t know what I really need, but I just am worried because I haven’t had my period since like December 26, and I’m scared.

CLINIC: Understandably so. Are you able to come in today and do that pregnancy test?

CALLER: Well, what are your hours today?

CLINIC: We’re open until 5:00.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Otherwise, Jean is here Monday from 10 until 2:00 and she’d be able to do that for you then.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: It’s pretty much whatever will work better for you.

CALLER: Well, I would want my boyfriend to come with me. Would that be all right?

CLINIC: That is perfectly fine. He is more than welcome.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So if you wanted to come in today and have that test done, that would be great. If not, Monday from 10:00 to 2:00 Jean would be more than happy to see you.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I come there for birth control?

CLINIC: You sure could, and everything would be taken care of, or your boyfriend would be more than — it would be more than nice for him to help. (laughs) But we do have programs if you needed some assistance. But we do the birth control pills plus the shots once a month or once every three months.

CALLER: Well, would he be able to pick up the pills for me if –

CLINIC: Certainly. I would just have to have you sign a piece of paper that has his name on it that authorizes him to pick the pills up for you.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay. So that way my parents — well, you wouldn’t have to tell my parents about birth control?

CLINIC: Not at all. We would put an alert in the computer that you are not to be contacted at all.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So it’s pretty much you come here or he comes here, and that’s it.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: So nobody would have to know about any of this?

CLINIC: Nobody at all.

CALLER: Oh. All right.

CLINIC: It’s completely confidential.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: We strive for that, because we understand. We’ve been there too.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So if you can get here before 5:00, if you get here a little before that would be great so that we — because we have a little bit of paperwork to do.

CALLER: Right.

CLINIC: But if not, Monday 10 to 2:00 Jean is here, and just wander on in. Do you know where we are?

CALLER: Well, yeah. My boyfriend does.

CLINIC: Okay, good.

CALLER: All right. Thank you.

CLINIC: You’re very welcome.

CALLER: Bye.
