CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. How can I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: No, not at this facility. You either have to call Encinitas or Mission Valley.
CALLER: What? Where?
CLINIC: You want their number?
CLINIC: It’s area code 760-634-8333.
CALLER: Oh, okay.
CLINIC: All right?
CALLER: Well, do you know — like my friend told me that you guys have to tell my parents before I can have an abortion. Is that true?
CLINIC: No. There’s no law in the state of California.
CALLER: Okay. Well, is there like a minimum age or anything? because I’ll be 14 in March.
CLINIC: No, there isn’t.
CALLER: Well, do you know — so you’re sure that they wouldn’t have to tell my parents or anything?
CLINIC: Yeah. (unclear) But go ahead and call them and they will reassure you.
CALLER: Okay. Well, like — my problem is my boyfriend’s 22, and we’re going to get married and everything but they can’t tell my parents because they would totally freak. They just think he’s too old for me and they don’t want me to go out with him at all.
CLINIC: Okay. (laughs) Well, you just need to call the clinic so you can set up your appointment and let them know your situation.
CALLER: Okay. Well, say that I wasn’t pregnant. Do you guys do birth control there?
CLINIC: Yes, we do.
CALLER: Would you guys have to tell anybody about me having birth control?
CALLER: Okay. Well, like is it all right if my boyfriend brings me and everything?
CLINIC: Right. But you’re pregnant right now, right?
CALLER: Well, I think so.
CLINIC: Well, then you’re going to want to get that taken care of before you start birth control.
CALLER: Okay. Do you guys do a pregnancy test there?
CLINIC: Yes. We’ll be here until 3:30 if you want to come in today.
CALLER: Oh. Well, okay.
CALLER: I’ll call my boyfriend and see.
CLINIC: All right.
CALLER: Is it all right if I call you back if he had any questions that I forgot to ask?
CLINIC: Sure. Of course.
CALLER: What was your name?
CLINIC: Concetta (sp).
CLINIC: All right.
CLINIC: Bye bye.
