(dialing sound) (ringing 1X)
CLINIC: (unclear) Woman’s Clinic. This is Karen.
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling to see if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: Yes, we do.
CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know how much it costs for that?
CLINIC: There’s two visit. The first visit is $50 cash. The second is if you’re 10 weeks or less it’s $400 to $460, depending upon your blood type.
CALLER: Okay. How do you know how many weeks you are?
CLINIC: At your first visit they’re going to give you an ultrasound.
CALLER: Well, okay. It’s just the main reason why I’m worried is because like, well 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. Is he old enough to take care of it and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CALLER: No? What do you mean?
CLINIC: You’re responsible for yourself.
CALLER: Okay. So you don’t have to tell my parents or anybody?
CLINIC: All I can do is tell you we’re not going to check your ID when you come in.
CLINIC: So when you fill out your application, your information forms, you can just put a different date.
CALLER: All right. Well, my boyfriend said that he would pay cash for everything, but is that all right —
CLINIC: It has to be cash.
CALLER: Okay. Well, is it all right if he’s there with me?
CALLER: It’s just, we don’t want a whole bunch of people to — we don’t want anyone to know about us, so like would he have to sign any papers or anything?
CLINIC: No. He won’t, no.
CALLER: Okay. All aright. Well, so — well if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?
CLINIC: Did you take a pregnancy test?
CALLER: Well, no. I just haven’t had my period since like January 3, and I’m — we’re both just really scared.
CLINIC: Okay. I think you should probably go have a pregnancy test, either go buy one at the store.
CALLER: Are those usually right though?
CLINIC: Yeah. They’re pretty accurate.
CALLER: Oh. Well, do you guys do one there that’s better?
CLINIC: It’s probably not any better, no. It’s $20 cash if you want to come in and do it here.
CALLER: Okay. I would just probably feel better if you guys did it, so. Would I do that on the first visit that I was there or —
CLINIC: No. You need to come and do that beforehand.
CALLER: When do you guys normally do pregnancy tests then?
CLINIC: You can just come into the office.
CALLER: Okay. What are your normal hours?
CLINIC: For that it would be between 9 and 11 and 2 and 4.
CALLER: Okay. Today?
CALLER: Do you ever have hours on Saturday?
CALLER: Okay. So it’s just Monday through Friday?
CLINIC: Yes. Not Tuesday afternoon and not Friday afternoon.
CALLER: Okay. Well, let me call my boyfriend and see when he can bring me but if I had — if I was on birth control would you guys have to tell anybody though?
CALLER: Okay. All right.
CALLER: All right. Okay. Thanks.
