CLINIC: Good afternoon. Planned Parenthood. This is Sherry (sp).
CALLER: Hi. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: No, we don’t, but I can give you the number of Vaughn (sp) Street Clinic in Denver.
CLINIC: It’s 303-321-2458.
CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — like my friend told me that you guys have to — like I’ll be 14 in March, and she said you guys have to tell my parents.
CLINIC: No, we don’t.
CALLER: But can I — is it all right — you don’t have to tell my parents at all?
CLINIC: No. There’s no parental consent in Colorado. You can call that number, and it’s totally confidential, and they will not tell your parents.
CALLER: Okay. Well, it’s just the problem is I can’t tell my parents at all because like my boyfriend is 22 and they hate him, but — because they just think he’s too old for me. So they can’t find out at all.
CALLER: All right.
CLINIC: No. It’s totally confidential.
CALLER: Okay. Well, like do you guys do the pregnancy tests there?
CLINIC: We do.
CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody about that either?
CLINIC: No. Everything that we do is totally confidential.
CLINIC: We don’t tell anybody anything about your health services.
CALLER: Okay. Is it all right if my boyfriend brings me in?
CLINIC: Oh, that’s fine. And you can do that on a walk-in basis.
CLINIC: They’re $22 normally, and if you come in tomorrow Tuesdays are $10.
CLINIC: And we’re open until 7:00 today and we’re open 9:00 to 7:00 tomorrow.
CALLER: Okay. So like do you guys do birth control too there?
CLINIC: Oh, sure.
CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody anything?
CLINIC: No. We don’t tell anybody anything. I promise.
CLINIC: It’s all confidential.
CALLER: Well, if I talked to my boyfriend and he had any other questions could I calla nd talk to you?
CALLER: What was your name?
CLINIC: My name’s Sherry, but you can talk to anybody here.
CLINIC: Yeah. Anybody will be glad to help you.
CALLER: All right.
CLINIC: You’re welcome. Bye bye.
