(Dialing, phone ringing 3x)

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. Can I help you?

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

CLINIC: No. There’s no place in the Eau Claire that does abortions.

CALLER: Oh. Do you know of anyplace that might though?

CLINIC: The Twin Cities is the closest.

CALLER: Do you have that phone number?

CLINIC: There’s a few places there.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Do you want the ones that just have 800 numbers?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: There is Meadowbrook Women’s Clinic, 1-800-721-7708.

CALLER: I’m just really scared. I’ll be 14 in March, and my friend told me that they would have to tell my parents about it. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever, and you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No. You have a couple of different options. If you have a brother or a sister that’s over the age of 25, or a grandparent, or I believe an aunt or uncle can give consent.

CALLER: I don’t have anybody.

CLINIC: Or you can get what’s called a judicial bypass.

CALLER: Okay. What is that?

CLINIC: They can help you out with that when you call the clinic.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Do you know how much that cost or anything?

CLINIC: I don’t think that cost anything.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: It’s just you meet with a judge, and he says it’s okay for you to get an abortion without your parents’ consent.

CALLER: Well, does he ever say no?

CLINIC: As far as I know it’s usually pretty easy to get.

CALLER: Oh, okay. All right.

CLINIC: And they can help you out with all that when you call the clinic. You can ask them about judicial bypass.

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

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: I’m just really worried. I don’t know what to do because my last period was December 14th, and I’m scared.

CLINIC: Okay. Have you done a pregnancy test though?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Okay. We have a full schedule today, but we’re not busy now if you wanted to come in now.

CALLER: Oh. Well, I’d have to call my boyfriend to see if he could bring me.

CLINIC: Or you can just get a test over the counter.

CALLER: Are those usually right?

CLINIC: They’re just exactly the ones we do. So you can just get a test and run it, and you’re going to get an accurate result as long as you follow the directions.

CALLER: Okay. Well, my boyfriend and I talked about it, and we don’t want anybody to know about this. Would you guys have to say anything?

CLINIC: No. It’s all confidential.

CALLER: Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I come in there and get birth control?

CLINIC: You sure could.

CALLER: Because I just don’t want to have to worry about this again.

CLINIC: Yep, you sure could.

CALLER: Would you guys have to tell anybody I was getting birth control though?

CLINIC: No. It’s completely confidential. We’re actually more confidential than the regular doctor’s office. Because your mom can call the doctor and ask him questions; they can’t call here and ask questions.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: I won’t tell anything about your care here unless I have your written consent.

CALLER: Oh, okay. So you wouldn’t have to tell about my boyfriend either?

CLINIC: (No response).

CALLER: Well, he just doesn’t want anyone to be asking questions, and we don’t want anybody to know at all.

CLINIC: (Pause) As long as we’re doing your care, your care is confidential.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Could you hold on for just a second?

CALLER: Yeah.

(Pause)

(Call disconnected)

(Dialing, phone did not ring)

RECORDING: You have reached the Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin Auclair (ph) Clinic’s voicemail system. We are either closed or on another line at this time. Our address is 1231 Monaminy (ph) Street. Our phone number is 715-833-2279. Our clinic hours are Monday, 12 to 7; Wednesday —

(Call disconnected)

(Dialing, phone ringing 3x)

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. Can I help you?

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was on hold, and it got disconnected. I don’t know who I was talking to.

CLINIC: Okay. I just need you to hold on for another second.

CALLER: All right.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Okay. Thanks for holding. So you said your boyfriend is 22.

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. And you are?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: So you know that this is illegal.

CALLER: What’s illegal? What do you mean?

CLINIC: For him to be having sex with you at 13.

CALLER: Why? I don’t understand. We’re in love. We’re going to get married.

CLINIC: This is illegal, and it’s reportable to the police.

CALLER: What could happen?

CLINIC: And because you’re under 18, we would have to report it to the police if you came here.

CALLER: Oh. Well, what can I do?

CLINIC: This is not a good relationship for you to be in. If he is 22 and you’re only 13, do you realize he’s an adult and you are still an adolescent?

CALLER: He’s a great guys. He said he was going to take care of me until we’re old and gray.

CLINIC: I guy told me the same thing 10 years ago, and I haven’t seen him, and I have a nine-year-old daughter.

CALLER: Yeah, but he’s a sweetheart. He wouldn’t do that.

CLINIC: Guys will do that. Men will do anything and say anything to have sex with you. They will.

CALLER: But he loves me.

CLINIC: And they will say that too.

CALLER: Well, what can I do?

CLINIC: You can still come here, but we do have to report it.

CALLER: Well, then I can’t come there. I don’t want him to get in trouble and go to jail.

CLINIC: But if he is 22 having sex with a 13-year-old — if you had a 13-year-old daughter, what would you say if she came to you and said I’m having sex with a 22-year-old man?

CALLER: I don’t know.

CLINIC: You would freak out.

CALLER: Well, I don’t know. I mean, if they were in love and happy.

CLINIC: You know in 10 years when you’re 23, you could be in love and happy. But your body is still changing so much that —

CALLER: Well, what should I do then? What can I do?

CLINIC: Well, I can’t tell you what to do. But this is not a relationship that you should be in.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And that is exactly why he doesn’t want you to tell anybody, because he knows that it’s wrong, and he knows that he will go to jail.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: That’s why you’re not suppose to tell anybody.

CALLER: Well, he said he just didn’t want me to get in trouble because —

CLINIC: No. He doesn’t want himself to get in trouble. You won’t get in trouble.

CALLER: I won’t? Well, if my parents found out, I’d get in big trouble.

CLINIC: Well, he doesn’t want to get in trouble, and he doesn’t want to go to jail. That’s why he told you not to tell anybody? He knows that it’s wrong, and he knows that this is something he shouldn’t be doing.

CALLER: Well, I can’t — I don’t know who to talk to. I don’t know what to do then. I mean, if he wasn’t there for me, I don’t — there’s nobody.

CLINIC: At 13 it’s so easy to think that. And I remember thinking exactly the same thing. It doesn’t seem like it, but you do have people that are there for you.

CALLER: Well, what can I do about all of this? What can I do? I don’t know what to do.

CLINIC: First of all we need to make sure that you’re not pregnant.

CALLER: But if I come in there, you have to send my boyfriend to jail?

CLINIC: Right.

CALLER: So where can I go then? Is there anyplace that I can go?

CLINIC: You can buy an over-the-counter test if you don’t want to come in here.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: But you really should come in here and get on protection, and probably get some tests done to make sure that he hasn’t given you any diseases.

CALLER: Would you tell?

CLINIC: Yes, we would report that he was having sex with you. Under law we have to because you’re under 18.

CALLER: Okay. So you just want me to come in there and have my boyfriend go to jail, and I’ll never see him ever again. I mean, I don’t want to come in if my boyfriend’s going to be sent to jail.

CLINIC: Well, this behavior he is having is wrong. This is a relationship that should not happen.

CALLER: But we’re in love.

CLINIC: You know, it might sound like it’s coming from an old adult that doesn’t know anything, but you don’t know what love is yet. It might feel like it. And I know at 13 you think everything is wonderful and you’re going to live happily ever after — at 18 I still thought that. And he told me he was going to take care of me forever, and we were going to live happily ever after. Got me in bed, left and never came back.

CALLER: But he wouldn’t do that.

CLINIC: You don’t know that.

CALLER: Yeah, I do. I mean, well — what can I do? I don’t know what to do. Is there anything I can do?

CLINIC: Well, what I think you should do and what you think you should do are two different things.

CALLER: What do you think I should do?

CLINIC: I think you should get a pregnancy test and make sure you’re not pregnant. And you need to end the relationship. Even if you don’t come in here and we don’t report it, you still need to end the relationship. Because this is wrong for him to be doing this. There’s got to be something wrong in his mind for him —

CALLER: Well, if it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, could I come in and get birth control so that I wouldn’t have to worry about this anymore?

CLINIC: You could. But if you tell us about him, he still has to be reported for having sex with somebody under 16.

CALLER: But if I don’t tell you, it will be okay?

CLINIC: Well, you need to be open and honest with your caregivers. You need to tell them everything so that they know the best way to help you.

CALLER: Okay. All right. Well, I don’t know what to do now. But could I call and ask you if I had any other questions?

CLINIC: You sure can.

CALLER: What was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Nickie (sp).

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: And you can call me anytime I’m here.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: When are you normally there?

CLINIC: Whenever the clinic’s open I’m here. So Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. Okay?

CALLER: All right. Thank you.

CLINIC: You bet. Bye.

Please hold while I try that extension.

CLINIC: Madison Planned Parenthood. Can I help you?

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t.

CALLER: Do you know of anyplace that does?

CLINIC: Yeah. The only place in Madison is the Madison Abortion Clinic. And their number — do you have a pen handy?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: 251-5900 is their number.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I’m just really scared because my friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that they would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever, and you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: Unfortunately it does have to be a family member.

CALLER: Is there any way not to have to — I don’t know.

CLINIC: Do you have any brothers or sisters or extended family?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: No? Okay. Then the only other thing is you can go to court. What do they call it? Like request that they grant you — I forget the name of it, but request that you can get out of that. And I don’t know what that process is like. But if you were to call the clinic, the Madison Abortion Clinic, I bet you anything they could give you more information on that.

CALLER: Do you know if they ever say no?

CLINIC: No. I don’t know. Just because we don’t perform them here I don’t have the details. But like I said, I bet that they would be able to give you more information at the Madison Abortion Clinic if you could give them a call.

CALLER: Would it be all right to come in there for a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: Have you taken a home one yet?

CALLER: Well, no. I’m just really scared because my last period was December 14th, and I’m just worried.

CLINIC: Are you having any other symptoms?

CALLER: Not that I know of.

CLINIC: No? Okay. Yeah. On Monday between 12:30 and 6:00 we do pregnancy testing, and you can just walk in for that on Monday.

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

CLINIC: No, definitely not.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I would really like if my boyfriend was there. Would that be all right?

CLINIC: That’s completely fine. That’s great.

CALLER: He’s just worried that you guys would ask a lot of questions. Would he have to sign anything?

CLINIC: Nothing, absolutely not.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: He can just come for support.

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

CLINIC: Possibly that day or on another day we could definitely do that for you.

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

CLINIC: No. It’s completely confidential. (?) have access to that knowledge except for you or anybody you allowed to have access to it.

CALLER: It’s just my boyfriend and I don’t want to have to go through all this again.

CLINIC: Right, definitely. So yeah, we could definitely do that. That would be really smart it sounds like.

CALLER: Okay. Thanks.

CLINIC: You’re welcome.

CALLER: Could I call and talk to you if I had any other questions?

CLINIC: Absolutely.

CALLER: What’s your name?

CLINIC: Chelsea (sp).

(Dialing, phone ringing 1x)

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood, Wisconsin (?). This is Rebecca.

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

CLINIC: No, we do not.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know of anybody that does?

CLINIC: You’d have to call the clinic on Jackson Street. And I can give you the number there.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: It’s 276-8777.

CALLER: Okay. My friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that they would have to tell my parents I was getting an abortion. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever, and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: You’d have to ask them over there. They handle everything related to abortions. I couldn’t really give you accurate information.

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

CLINIC: If you’d have the abortion done, they’d have to give you a pregnancy test there anyway. So you might as well just go there.

CALLER: Well, my friend just told me to go to you guys because it was better to go there.

CLINIC: Well, this is a Planned Parenthood also. But this is the only Planned Parenthood that deals with abortions, the number that I just gave you. We don’t do anything abortion-related here. So you’d have to call that number and have everything — I mean, you could come here and do a pregnancy test, but they do one again when you got there anyway. So you’d be getting double services.

CALLER: Well, I just don’t know. I haven’t had one yet, and I’m scared because my last period was December 14th, and I’m just worried. I would just rather go in there real quick and see.

CLINIC: Okay. Well, we’re open for pregnancy testing until noon today.

CALLER: Okay. Well, is it all right if my boyfriend’s there with me though?

CLINIC: That’s fine.

CALLER: Because I wouldn’t have any other way to get there.

CLINIC: That’s fine. But we stop doing them at noon.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Would anybody have to know about us or ask any questions or anything?

CALLER: No, everything here is confidential.

CALLER: Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys have birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes, but we couldn’t give you any today because there’s no nurse practitioner on staff.

CALLER: Well, how soon would I be able to get —

CLINIC: You’d have to come back in. Our walk-ins are Monday. She won’t be here until after 12, so we’ll be seeing a couple patients between 12 and 2. And then our next walk-in day is Wednesday.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if I was on birth control, would you guys have to tell anybody about it?

CLINIC: No, everything is confidential here.

CALLER: Okay. Well, would it be all right — the problem is I’m not old enough to drive. Could my boyfriend pick up the birth control pills or whatever?

CLINIC: You would have to be here in order to receive the pills yourself. We can’t dispense any kind of medication to anybody but the patients.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: So if you want to get birth control pills, I’d probably come down on Wednesday. You could come in on a walk-in. You might end up waiting a while. But you could be seen by the nurse practitioner. We could do the pregnancy test. And then if you’re negative, we can start you on birth control right away.

CALLER: Okay. What was the number for the clinic again?

CLINIC: The Jackson Street clinic?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: It’s 276-8777. But you’d have to be pregnant in order to go there. They don’t do any other services there. It’s just an abortion clinic.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: So I wouldn’t be able to get birth control there?

CLINIC: No. You’d have to come and get an exam for that. And our next walk-in day is Wednesday.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Thank you.

CLINIC: Our clinic does not. It’s the Jackson Street location. Do you want that phone number, ma’am?

CALLER: Yes, please.

CLINIC: Okay. Hold on one moment. I’ve got to get my little cheat-sheet of phone numbers. Okay. Their phone number is 276-8777.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: That’s a 414.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, can I ask you a quick question?

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: I’m just really worried because like my — like I’ll be 14 in March, and my friend told me that they would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: Okay. Now are you 18?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: You’ll be 14 in March?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: If you are under the age of 18 to get an AB you need to have someone that’s 25 or older, like do you have a sibling at all that’s 25 or older?

CALLER: No. I’m the oldest.

CLINIC: Do you have an aunt that you can talk to?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Okay. You’ll have to do something. You might be able to get like a court bypass. Can you hold on one moment? I’ll get you some information?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay, hold on. Okay, ma’am?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Okay. Okay, what you need, what you’re probably going to want to do is something called — you have no other family members that you can confide in with this?

CALLER: Right.

CLINIC: Okay. You’re going to want to do what’s known as a court bypass, okay?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: And basically you file a petition to wave consent. And then basically at the public defender’s office at no charge they will act as your advocate and will accompany you to see a judge in a confidential meeting. The judge must determine that you are like mature and well-informed about the decision and that the abortion is in your best interest.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: What you may want to do is when you call them and ask them about this stuff — otherwise, what you can do is — do you live near here? Could you maybe walk? Could your boyfriend drive you here? Because we could give you like this little packet. We could just give you a packet. Oh, wait. Here. I have a phone number for the public defender’s office. Okay?

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay. I’ll give you first the public defender’s office. And their phone number is, 266-1210. And then for like other info you’ll probably have to call the Children’s Court Center. This will be the second number that you’ll probably have to call. 257-7736.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? Now if you want, we do have a little bit of a packet if you want to stop in and get that. Otherwise, if you call those phone numbers they’ll probably be able to really help you out about what you need to do.

CALLER: Do you know if the judge ever says no?

CLINIC: Most of the time the judge does not say no. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a time where a judge says no.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: All right?

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

CLINIC: Come here for a pregnancy test?

CALLER: Yeah. I’m just really scared because like my period — I haven’t had my period since like December 14.

CLINIC: Are you — okay. Have you already taken a home pregnancy test?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Okay. You have not taken — okay.

CALLER: I didn’t know if those are right.

CLINIC: Those are actually fairly accurate. You could probably go to Walgreen’s and get one for like $15. You’re more than welcome to come here, although there is a charge –

CALLER: I would rather do that.

CLINIC: You can. Okay. There is a charge for a pregnancy.

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

CLINIC: He said he would pay. Okay, because the pregnancy tests here — it’s right around $35, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right. So do you want to make an appointment then?

CALLER: Well, I guess.

CLINIC: Okay, hold on.

CALLER: I don’t know — but my boyfriend and I talked about it, but we don’t want anyone to know about us. Would you guys have to say anything?

CLINIC: Everything here is confidential.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, if the pregnancy test came out like that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes, you can get birth control here. There’s also a cost to get annual exam and to get on the pill, but did you say — would your boyfriend be willing to pay for that too?

CALLER: Yeah. Yeah. We just don’t want to go through all this again.

CLINIC: Okay. The charge for the exam because you’re under 18 there is a discount. It’s going to be around $75 or so. Pills for you are $12.25 a month.

CALLER: Okay. Well, would you guys have to tell anybody that I was on birth control?

CLINIC: No. Again, everything here is confidential. Okay?

CALLER: Okay. Well, he actually has a job. Would it cost anymore then if he was paying for it?

CLINIC: Oh, no, no. Because you’re under 18. It’s just a certain charge because when you’re under 18 there’s a discount.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay? Did you want — you want to make an appointment first for a pregnancy test?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay, hold on one moment. (pause) Can you come in at 12:15?

CALLER: Well, I don’t know. I’d have to call my boyfriend, but I think he could take me at his lunch break then. So.

CLINIC: Okay. Why don’t — all right. Do you want to give me — how about if I just get your first and last name?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: And you’re sure — like my boyfriend and I don’t want us to — don’t want anyone to know about us. And you’re sure that you guys wouldn’t say anything?

CLINIC: Everything here is confidential, ma’am.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay. Why don’t I get your first and last name, and then if he can’t give us a call back, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And we can set up an appointment for you on Monday.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay, so what’s your first name?

CALLER: Christine.

CALLER: All right. So what time do I need to be there, like 12:15?

CLINIC: 12:15.

CALLER: All right. Well, so should I call you? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Amber.

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t.

CALLER: You don’t? Do you know of any place that does?

CLINIC: I can give you the phone number to the Madison Abortion Clinic.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: 251-5900.

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

CLINIC: Um, you’re under the age of 18?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Okay. The Wisconsin law says that you have to have written consent of a parent or a close relative.

CALLER: Is there any way to get around that? Like I can’t tell my parents because like my boyfriend’s 22 and we’re going to get married, but like they can’t find out at all because they hate him. They think he’s too old for me.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Do you have an older brother or sister, aunt or uncle, grandparent?

CALLER: No. Uh-uh.

CLINIC: Okay. There is a way to get around it, but you would have to go to court for it.

CALLER: 4:00? All right. Well, he was actually wondering about birth control too. Do you guys do that there?

CLINIC: Yeah, but — we can. But obviously we’ll have to wait until after the abortion to make an appointment for you.
