CLINIC: Upland. This is Pat. How may I help you?

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there.

CLINIC: No, we don’t. San Bernardino does.

CALLER: Oh. Do you have that number?

CLINIC: Sure I do. Are you ready?


CLINIC: 909-890-5511. How far along are you?

CALLER: Well, my last period was like the first week in December.

CLINIC: Ohh. Okay. Do you know a date?

CALLER: It was probably like third I guess.

CLINIC: The third of December. And we are in February. Yeah. Try to call them up and set up an appointment right away.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — like my friend told me you guys have to tell my parents before I can have an abortion. Is that true?

CLINIC: Not that I know of, no. Uh-uh. Is this something you heard on —

CALLER: Like I’m almost 14. I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Is it something that she heard or something, or what?

CALLER: Well, she’s just — yeah.

CLINIC: How old is she?

CALLER: She’s 14.

CLINIC: 14, oh. Not that I know of. I’ve never heard that, so.

CALLER: Okay. It’s just the problem is I can’t tell my parents at all because like, well my boyfriend’s 22, and like —

CLINIC: Uh-huh. How old is he?


CLINIC: How old is he?

CALLER: He’s 22.

CLINIC: 22. Okay. And it was with your consent and all that?

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

CLINIC: You’re going to get married. The only thing I don’t know. They still have to report it because you’re underage but not —


CLINIC: Not to your parents.


CLINIC: Not to your parents.

CALLER: Well, who else would they report it to?

CLINIC: I think the state. They report it to the state because you’re underage, but that’s something that you were willing to have you know, intercourse.

CALLER: So why would they have to tell anyone?

CLINIC: Well, that’s what I’m saying. It’s a procedure that they would have to do. But I don’t know if San Bernardino would do that because some places do that.


CLINIC: You know? So that’s what I’m saying. When you call them up, let them know, you know, that you’re interested in terminating the pregnancy and that you want to know if you need your parents’ consent or not.

CALLER: I just — well, he won’t get in trouble or anything will he?

CLINIC: No. Uh-uh.


CLINIC: No. Just let them know, you know, what you want to do, and you ask them if they do need parents consent. I haven’t heard that people do need that, you know.

CALLER: Should I just not tell them about my boyfriend, or —

CLINIC: Well, they’re going to ask you because they’re going to ask you a couple questions and all that to see. They’re going to ask you, you know, a couple questions. It’s a form that we have to fill out, you know, about when your period, how old you are and your birthdays and all that, with emergency contact, you know emergency everything you know.

CALLER: What does the state do?

CLINIC: They just keep it in file I believe. They won’t — I don’t think they do anything.

CALLER: So like my parents wouldn’t find out or anything?

CLINIC: Not that I know of. No.


CLINIC: But they’re going to ask you questions, so it’s best to answer, you know, honest and everything you know.

CALLER: Okay. Well, like, so you don’t think anybody would have to know?

CLINIC: No. That’s what I’m saying.


CLINIC: Ask them before you do.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, if like I wasn’t pregnant do you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Okay. But would you guys have to tell anybody about that?

CLINIC: No. Everything’s confidential. That’s what I’m saying — everything’s confidential, even abortions are confidential.

CALLER: Is it all right if I call you back if I think of anything else?


CALLER: What was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Pat.

CALLER: Oh. Okay.

CLINIC: Is that your name?


CLINIC: Is that your name?

CALLER: My name is Christine.

CLINIC: Oh, okay, because you said, oh okay, so I thought your name was Pat too.

CALLER: No. That would be cool though.

CLINIC: I know. Just call me back.

CALLER: All right. Thanks.

CLINIC: Talk to you later. Bye bye.


CLINIC: Bye bye.
