CLINIC: Planned Parenthood (unclear). How may I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering, do you guys do abortions there?
CLINIC: Not here.
CALLER: Oh. Well, do you know of any place that does?
CLINIC: The Phoenix (unclear) here in town.
CALLER: Oh. Well, do you have the number for the one in Phoenix?
CLINIC: Yeah. Can you hold on?
CLINIC: You have a pen?
CLINIC: It’s 623-924-3244. And there’s another one too, okay? 602-277-1168.
CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know, I’m just really worried because like — well I’m going to be 14 next month, and my friend told me 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’re 14?
CALLER: Well, I’ll be 14 next month.
CLINIC: Next month?
CLINIC: I really am not sure, but they’re making — I don’t think they’ll say anything.
CLINIC: Yeah, because that’s what they were trying to — when I went to the last meeting over there, they were saying that they were going to keep it like a secret because there’s a lot of teenagers that are under 18 that do it and they end up doing it wrong.
CALLER: Doing what wrong?
CLINIC: They go to another place to get their abortion and it doesn’t come out right.
CALLER: So you wouldn’t tell anybody about me?
CLINIC: No, I don’t think they would.
CLINIC: You can call and ask.
CALLER: Okay. Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test just to make sure? I’m just really worried about all this because I haven’t had my period since like December 26.
CLINIC: Yeah. You can come in.
CALLER: Okay. Well, do you think that there would be any way that I wasn’t pregnant?
CLINIC: If you would have came sooner, like when he went in on you, you could have taken the morning after pill.
CALLER: Oh. Well, could — if the pregnancy test there came that — if it came out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control?
CLINIC: What did you say?
CALLER: If the pregnancy test came out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?
CLINIC: Hold on, please. If you were pregnant what?
CALLER: If I wasn’t pregnant, could I come in and get birth control there?
CLINIC: Yeah. Yeah. You just have to have your pap smear and everything done. Yeah.
CALLER: But would anybody have to know about that?
CALLER: Oh, okay.
CLINIC: Nobody has to know about that.
CLINIC: It’s confidential here.
CALLER: And nobody would have to ask anything about me and my boyfriend or anything?
CLINIC: No. No. No. If you weren’t pregnant, you can just come in and we’ll make you an appointment to have your pap smear done and check for STDs and then you ask the doctor for pills, and he will give you some, and that’s it.
CALLER: Oh, okay.
CALLER: Well, I just have a lot of questions I can’t think of right now. Could I call you back and talk to you?
CALLER: What’s your name?
CLINIC: Okay, then.
