CLINIC: Hello. May I help you?

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. Do you guys do abortions there?

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Oh, okay. That’s what I was calling about. Do you know how much it cost for that?

CLINIC: Yeah. If you’re between 12 weeks and under, it’s $320 cash.

CALLER: Well, how do you know how far along you are?

CLINIC: You have to do a — what you do is you call, you make an appointment, and everything is done in one day if you’re 12 weeks and under. They do an ultra sound, they do pregnancy tests, they do everything.

CALLER: Okay. Well, my last period was January 3rd?

CLINIC: Um-hmm.

CALLER: So how do you know if you’re 12 weeks and under or not?

CLINIC: All it takes is if you’re pregnant (chuckle). Let me see.

CALLER: Well, I haven’t had a pregnancy test yet. I just haven’t had my period in a long time, and I’m scared.

CLINIC: You haven’t had a period in a long time. Like how long?

CALLER: Well, since January 3rd.

CLINIC: January?

CALLER: January 3rd.

CLINIC: Okay. Let me see.

CALLER: The thing is, I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend said that you guys would have to tell my parents I was getting an abortion. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever it is, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No, no. There’s nothing to do — uh-uh, she’s wrong. Your friend is wrong, okay?

CALLER: All right. So you don’t have to tell my parents then?

CLINIC: No, no. In the state of California, the parents have no right. If you’re under age and you’re pregnant, and you want to have a termination or if you want to have the baby, it’s up to them. All right? That’s in the state of California. So your friend told you wrong that you’re suppose to tell your parents. No. Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Let me see.

CALLER: The other thing was too, my boyfriend and I were talking about all this. And he said that he would pay for everything. But we don’t want anyone to know about us. Would he have to sign anything if he was paying for everything?

CLINIC: No, ma’am. I said no, uh-uh. Nobody. Okay? You’re about I would say nine weeks. So you’d better hurry up and make an appointment. Because if you’re over 12 weeks it’s a two-day procedure, and it’s more money, okay?

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

CLINIC: Why don’t you talk to your boyfriend and see what he’s going to do, okay, and if he’s going to pay for it.

CALLER: Well, he said he would pay for everything.

CLINIC: Oh, okay. What city are you in?

CALLER: I’m in Marino Valley.

CLINIC: Do you want to come in tomorrow? I can schedule you an appointment for tomorrow morning.

CALLER: Well, what time?

CLINIC: At 9:30?

CALLER: Okay. Would you do the pregnancy test first, and then go from there?

CLINIC: No, no. They do everything there, okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: I need your full name.

CALLER: Well, I need to call him and see if that’s a good time for him, and then call you back. What was your name?

CLINIC: Just call me back. I’ll be here, okay?

CALLER: All right.

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do. Hold on a minute?

(Pause)

CALLER: Okay. The thing is, I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend said that you guys would have to tell my parents about all this. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No. We don’t tell anyone. Everything that we do here is confidential.

CALLER: Okay. All right. We were talking about all this, and he said that he’s going to pay cash for everything. But we just don’t want anyone to know about us. Would he have to fill out any forms if he was paying?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Let me go ahead and transfer your call, okay?

CALLER: To who?

CLINIC: To the manager. Hold on.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: Thank you for holding. How may I help you?

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering about getting an abortion?

CLINIC: For an appointment?

CALLER: Well, yeah. I was wanting to ask questions. I’m going to be 14 next month, or later on this month —

CLINIC: Fourteen years old?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: My friend told me that 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 on me?

CLINIC: If you’re 13 years old, we would have to contract Department of Social Services.

CALLER: Who is that?

CLINIC: A social worker.

CALLER: Okay. Why?

CLINIC: Why? Because you’re 13 years old.

CALLER: Okay. Well, should I wait until I’m 14?

CLINIC: I can’t tell you what to do, but we would have to contact that department if you are 13 years old.

CALLER: Okay. Well, my last period was January 3rd. That’s why I’m just really worried about all this.

CLINIC: Let’s say you are in your first trimester, which is six weeks, up to 13 weeks, counting from the first day of your last period —

CALLER: That was January 3rd.

CLINIC: And your periods are regular?

CALLER: Usually.

CLINIC: Usually?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Not all the time?

CALLER: Well, I’ve been late before but only like a week.

CLINIC: You already had a pregnancy test done?

CALLER: Well, no. I just haven’t had my period since January 3rd, and I’m just really scared.

CLINIC: Thirteen weeks is April 4th. So once you’re over 13-and-a-half weeks pregnant, then it would be a two-day procedure. But as long as you’re between six and 13 weeks, it would only be a one day. So I’m not going to tell you to wait; you know what I mean?

CALLER: Okay. Well, I’ll be 14 on March 19th.

CLINIC: Okay. Well, if you want to wait until then, go ahead and do so, and then make your appointment.

CALLER: But would you have to report to the people there?

CLINIC: Not at all.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right. So it would just be better to wait then?

CLINIC: Well, I can’t tell you what to do, but only if you don’t want your parents to know. I’m telling you that we would have to let them know if you’re 13 years old. Okay?

CALLER: So could I come in there for a pregnancy test though just to make sure?

CLINIC: Yeah, you could.

CALLER: Well, what time do you normally do those?

CLINIC: We’re doing them now. You could just walk in. We close at 4:30. So you might want to try to come in before then, okay?

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend’s got to get the time off work.

CLINIC: If not, Monday through Friday, 8:30 to 4:30. You could come in tomorrow.

CALLER: Okay. But would you have to tell anybody if I was getting a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay. Well, if it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes. First you would have to come for a pap smear, which is $80. And then we’ll give you a six-month supply of pills.

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

CLINIC: If you were 13 (laughing)?

CALLER: If I was 13, they would have to know?

CLINIC: Hold on.

(Pause)

CLINIC: Hello?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: If you were just coming in for a pap smear and birth control, then we wouldn’t report it.

CALLER: Okay. So it would be all right if my boyfriend was there with me, and you wouldn’t tell anybody about us or him or anything?

CLINIC: Excuse me?

CALLER: It would be all right if my boyfriend was there with me? Because he said he would pay for everything.

CLINIC: He could wait for you in the lobby. But when you’re having a pap smear, no, he cannot be there with you. You know what I mean?

CALLER: But he can be in the lobby, and he can pay for everything?

CLINIC: He can wait for you there. Yeah.

CALLER: And he wouldn’t get in trouble or anything?

CLINIC: No. That wouldn’t be a problem.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: So if it ended up that I was pregnant, I should call you after the 19th?

CLINIC: Um-hmm.

CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to report it then?

CLINIC: No, not if you’re 14.

CALLER: Okay. If I had any other questions, could I call you before — I need to talk to my boyfriend and see exactly when he can get off work to take me.

CLINIC: Sure. But you might want to come in and get a test though. You can just walk in for that.

CALLER: Okay. Well, what was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Ferthice. You can talk to anyone. It doesn’t matter. Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All righty. Bye bye.

CLINIC: Family Planning Associates. Helen. How may I help you?

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Do you know how much they cost?

CLINIC: 350 for surgery, and it’s 425 for the abortion pill.

CALLER: Okay. The thing is, I’m going to be 14 later on this month —

CLINIC: Fourteen weeks?

CALLER: Fourteen years old. My birthday is on the 19th. But my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents.

CLINIC: We don’t have to tell anybody. No, that is not correct. But we do have to report it to Child Protective Services for anybody that’s under 13.

CALLER: Why?

CLINIC: That’s a law.

CALLER: Oh. Is there any way not to have to do that? What do you mean?

CLINIC: You’re under 13?

CALLER: Well, I’m 13 right now. I’ll be 14 on the 19th.

CLINIC: Okay. When was the first day of your last normal period?

CALLER: January 3rd.

CLINIC: And when did you want to do the procedure?

CALLER: I don’t know.

CLINIC: Ma’am, from the age of 13, it would be reported. If you are 14 on March 19th, you might want to wait until you’re 14 to come in then.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? Because at that point, it will not be reported.

CALLER: Okay. Well, my boyfriend’s 22, and he said he would take care of everything. Would that make any difference?

CLINIC: That makes it even worst if your boyfriend’s 22 and you’re 13.

CALLER: Why?

CLINIC: Hold on, please.

(Pause, music playing)

CLINIC: Just so you understand, legally, if you’re 13 years there’s something called statutory rape. It’s sexual assault. That’s what it’s considered.

CALLER: But he’s not raping me. I mean, we’re in love. We’re going to get married. He said he’s going to take care of me forever.

CLINIC: Would you listen to me, ma’am? I’ll just explain it to you. This is the legal law, a California law. It has nothing to do with us, or what we believe, or if you’re getting married or any of that. So legally we would have to report it to the authorities. That’s just so you understand, okay?

CALLER: So what can I do then?

CLINIC: At that point, they’ll come to your house. They’ll probably send a social worker to come investigate.

CALLER: What can I do so that they don’t do that?

CLINIC: You can’t, ma’am. If we know how old you are, then legally we have a responsibility to inform the Child Protective Services because you’re legally considered a child.

CALLER: But I’ll be 14 after the 19th.

CLINIC: Okay. But still there’s an age difference; 14 and 22, ma’am, still falls into that range. Okay?

CALLER: So what shall I do then? I don’t know what to do?

CLINIC: Do you want to schedule for an abortion, ma’am? I would have to take information. When you come in, just be aware that they would have to send that through California state. So they’d probably send a social worker or somebody to your home, somebody assigned to you, ma’am, to check on you. And they possibly will press charges. It’s not going to be anything that you want to or not. The state can take that upon themselves to do that at that time. You can call an attorney if you’d like, get some legal advice. But other than that I can only tell you what we would do here.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I haven’t had a pregnancy test yet. Do you guys do that there?

CLINIC: Yeah. The test is free, ma’am. You can walk in at any time. Just no children are allowed.

CALLER: But would you have to tell people then if I was coming in for a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: Not for a pregnancy test.

CALLER: Well, if turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control from you guys?

CLINIC: We’d have to schedule you for a pap smear. We could take care of that for you. Yes.

CALLER: Okay. But would anybody have to know if I was on birth control?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: You can come in at any time. Why don’t you come in and take a test, and then we’ll go from there.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: But you promise you won’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No, ma’am. Legally, I don’t have to tell anybody if you’re coming in for a pregnancy test.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: All right.

CALLER: What time do you normally do pregnancy tests?

CLINIC: We’re here until 4:30.

CALLER: Everyday?

CLINIC: Yes, ma’am.

CALLER: If I had any other questions, could I call you?

CLINIC: Of course.

CLINIC: Family Planning Associates. This is Mary. May I help you?

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

CLINIC: We do.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know how much it costs for that?

CLINIC: We do them up to three months, and that’s $350.

CALLER: Okay. How do you know how many months you are?

CLINIC: You have an exam when you come in.

CALLER: Okay. I just haven’t had my period since like January 3, and I’m just really worried, so.

CLINIC: Have you had a pregnancy test done?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Okay. You can do that first.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay, we do free testing here. You don’t need an appointment. You can come in any time between 8:00 and 4:30.

CALLER: Today?

CLINIC: Any day.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: And if it’s positive then we’ll go ahead and schedule that appointment for you.

CALLER: Okay. I was just really wondering like my main question is, 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. Could he just sign whatever it is and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No, he doesn’t sign anything. You would sign your own forms when you come in.

CALLER: Oh. So you wouldn’t have to tell anybody then?

CLINIC: No. We don’t release any information on any of our patients that comes in.

CALLER: Oh, all right. Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control from you guys?

CLINIC: Sure.

CALLER: Really? How much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: You would have to have a pap smear, which is — and that’s $80. And then we would give you the first three months supplies of pills with that.

CALLER: Okay. The thing is, I’m going to be — well me and my boyfriend were talking about all this, and my boyfriend and I decided we don’t want anyone to know about us. But he said he was going to pay for everything, so does he have to sign anything though?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: If he was paying for it all?

CLINIC: No, he doesn’t.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: He doesn’t have to sign anything.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All righty.

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: You’re welcome.

CALLER: Bye.

CLINIC: Bye.

CLINIC: Family Planning Associates. This is Elizabeth. May I help you?

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

CLINIC: Yes.

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

CLINIC: How far along are you?

CALLER: I’m not really sure. How do you know?

CLINIC: What’s the first day of your last period?

CALLER: January 3.

CLINIC: So you’re in the first trimester, so it would be $350.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — I’m kind of worried because like I’m going to be 14 later on this month and my friend said that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever it is?

CLINIC: No. That’s why we have to report it because you’re underage and he’s an adult.

CALLER: Who do you have to report it to?

CLINIC: We have to report it to the authorities.

CALLER: Oh. Well, well, what could happen?

CLINIC: They’ll contact your family.

CALLER: Well, they can’t tell my parents. I mean —

CLINIC: But honey, we have to. You’re only 13. He’s 22.

CALLER: So there’s nothing I can do?

CLINIC: No, unless you talk to your parents first.

CALLER: But I can’t talk to my parents. I mean, if they — they know my boyfriend. They just —

CLINIC: But it’s a state law, sweetie, and we can’t go against that.

CALLER: But I just — okay. Well, could I come in for a pregnancy test just to make sure?

CLINIC: Where do you live?

CALLER: I live in Cypress.

CLINIC: In Cypress? So you’re calling the Cypress phone number?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Okay. They’re no longer open. We’re in Long Beach.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So we’re probably closest to you, right?

CALLER: Yeah.

CLINIC: Yeah, you can come in for a free pregnancy test.

CALLER: Would you have to report it then?

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Did you take a home test?

CALLER: Well, no.

CLINIC: Why don’t you do that?

CALLER: Well, I didn’t know that they were right.

CLINIC: Yeah. They’re pretty accurate as long as you follow the instructions. Why are you dating a 22-year-old guy at 13?

CALLER: Well, I mean, he’s a sweetheart. I don’t —

CLINIC: Yeah? But unfortunately with you only being 13 we have to report it.

CALLER: Well, what can I do?

CLINIC: I can’t help you with that one. I mean, we just have laws that we have to go by.

CALLER: Oh. Well, if it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control from you guys?

CLINIC: You’d have to make an appointment for a pap smear. Those are $80. Or I can give you the number to Memorial Women’s Center that’s in Long Beach.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: They go on a sliding scale. Their phone number is 933-2998.

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

CLINIC: Okay.

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

CLINIC: No.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: So all right.

CLINIC: I’m sorry. I know. I understand that you’ve got family situations and everything, but unfortunately, like I said, it’s a state law.

CALLER: Okay. Well, but if I wasn’t pregnant you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No, because there’s no reason. There’s nothing to report.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: All righty. We’re open from 8 to 4:30 Monday through Friday for the pregnancy testing and 8 to 1 on Saturday.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay.

CALLER: Okay. Thank you.

CLINIC: You’re welcome. Bye bye.

(dialing sound) (ringing 2X)

CLINIC: Good morning. Surgical Center. Sophia speaking. How can I help you?

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

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

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

CLINIC: Depending on how far along you are. Do you know the first day of your last normal period?

CALLER: My last period was January 3.

CLINIC: Looks like you would be approximately about 8 weeks today. So the cost for that would be $600.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: If you’re less than 10 weeks the procedure is $600. If you’re over 10 weeks then it just depends on how far along you are in your pregnancy.

CALLER: Okay. I was just wondering — it’s just 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 take care of it and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: You’re 13 and he’s 21?

CALLER: He’s 22.

CLINIC: 22? Okay, well, legally in California that’s considered statutory rape.

CALLER: What do you mean? I mean, he’s not raping me or anything.

CLINIC: I understand —

CALLER: We’re in love. We’re going to get married.

CLINIC: I understand that, but you know, the legal laws in California would consider that, even though if it is consensual.

CALLER: Well, what would happen?

CLINIC: That I’m not quite sure. You know, we wouldn’t — would probably have to do something with the police.

CALLER: The police?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

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

CLINIC: Well, if they’re going to investigate this and then they might have to, you know, discuss it with your family members.

CALLER: Well, they can’t — well, what can I do?

CLINIC: Let me have you call the National Abortion Federation.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: That’s 1-800-772-9100.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay? And you can tell them your situation and they can give you some resources.

CALLER: Oh. Well, could i come in there for a pregnancy test just to make sure I am pregnant?

CLINIC: Sure. Hold on just a second, okay?

CALLER: All right.

(classical music)

CLINIC: Hello?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Okay. We can go ahead and see you for the pregnancy test, but if it does come out positive then we are going to have to file a report.

CALLER: Oh.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, if it came out negative could I get birth control?

CLINIC: No. We would have to have a pap smear on file.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: So that you have a normal pap smear because we’re not allowed to give any sort of sample unless we have an okay pap smear on your record.

CALLER: Well, if I wasn’t pregnant could I get that?

CLINIC: Could you get a birth control pill? No, because if we don’t have —

CALLER: Could I get like a pap smear thing?

CLINIC: We don’t do pap smears here. You would have to get that with your regular doctor.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: But if I had that would you guys be able to do birth control?

CLINIC: Your pap smear on file?

CALLER: Right.

CLINIC: Right, but we don’t do that unless we see you for the termination. We don’t just hand it out. You know, that’s something you would want to go through Planned Parenthood or something like that.

CALLER: Planned Parenthood?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Okay. But would they have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: It really depends on what you decide to tell them, how much you let them know.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Well, if I didn’t tell you about my boyfriend would I be able to get the abortion?

CLINIC: I know from right now if you were to give me too much information I wouldn’t be able to answer that. That’s — you know, if you want to have that done you would want to be a little bit more discreet about the information you give. But if they find out you’re not legal age then they will have to file a report to the state.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: So even if my boyfriend wasn’t 22?

CLINIC: Even if he wasn’t — if you’re under 14 it is considered rape in the state of California.

CALLER: Okay. All right. So all aright. If I had any other questions could I call and talk to you? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Sophia.

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: But I recommend you call that number. They have a lot of great resources for any information you need.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: The number for the National Abortion Federation? They know?

CLINIC: Yes.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay?

CALLER: Okay.

CLINIC: All right. Anything else I can help you with?

CALLER: No.

CLINIC: Okay, then.

CALLER: Okay. Thank you.

CLINIC: You’re welcome. Bye bye.

CALLER: Bye.
