CLINIC: Okay. What was your question?
CALLER: Well, my friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that my parents have to sign some stuff. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could I have him sign it instead?
CLINIC: Your parents don’t have to sign anything no matter how old you are.
CALLER: Okay. Could I come there for the pregnancy test?
CLINIC: Yeah. If you are pregnant, we give you the verification. And that’s what you would take when you have the abortion.
CALLER: And you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody about having the pregnancy test?
CLINIC: No. Everything here is confidential.
CALLER: Would it be all right if my boyfriend was there with me?
CLINIC: Yes. That’s fine.
CALLER: But if I wasn’t pregnant, would you guys be able to do birth control there?
CLINIC: We can schedule you for that. Unless we’re slow at the time when you come in for your pregnancy test, then we can put you through for birth control.
CALLER: All right. And nobody has to know about birth control either?
CLINIC: Everything here is confidential.
CALLER: All right.
CLINIC: Okay? Okay?
CALLER: I need to call my boyfriend and see if had any other questions, but could I call you back? What was your name?
CLINIC: Yeah. My name is Norma. You can ask for Norma G.
CALLER: Thank you.
CLINIC: You’re welcome. Bye bye.
