Planned Parenthood. How can I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there?
CLINIC: Not at this clinic, but at the Orange one.
CALLER: Oh. Well, do you have that number?
CLINIC: Sure. 714-633-4550.
CALLER: Do you know — I’m just really worried about talking to them because my friend told me that since like I’m going to be 14 in March that they would have to tell my parents I’m getting an abortion.
CALLER: But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever it is and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: No. Nobody — no. There’s a confidentiality agreement with you that it’s confidential.
CALLER: Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test?
CLINIC: Sure. You can come in today until 4:30.
CALLER: Okay. Well, is it all right like if my boyfriend brings me and he’s there with me?
CLINIC: Yeah, he can come in.
CALLER: It’s just we were talking about all this, and we don’t want anyone to know about us.
CLINIC: That’s fine. But he can’t go back with you to see the doctor, the nurse. But he can come with you and sit in the waiting room with you.
CALLER: All right.
CALLER: Well, if it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?
CALLER: We just don’t want to have to go through all this again.
CALLER: But would you have to tell anybody if I was on birth control though?
CLINIC: No. Nobody would have to know. Only you.
CALLER: Okay. Well, if I was on birth control could he pick up the pills? I can’t drive. I’m not old enough.
CLINIC: You’re the only one that can get them.
CALLER: Oh, okay. If I had any other questions, could I call and talk to you? What’s your name?
CALLER: Okay. Thanks.
CLINIC: Okay. Bye bye.
