TAPE – 820

(Dialing, phone ringing 1x)

CLINIC: Dr. Waterman’s office. This is Beth.

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling to see if you guys do abortions there.

CLINIC: We do.

CALLER: How much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: Were you referred by anyone?

CALLER: Yeah. I talked to the Planned Parenthood, and they gave me this number.

CLINIC: Okay. It would $400. That has to be paid in cash at the time of the procedure. Somebody has to come with you to drive.

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend said he would bring me. Would that be all right?

CLINIC: That’s fine.

CALLER: My main question is, I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend said that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22, and he was wanting to take care of everything. But he would pay for everything in cash. And we just don’t want anyone to know. Would you have to tell my parents or anybody if he was taking care of it all?


CALLER: All right. Okay.

CLINIC: You’re 14?

CALLER: Well, I’ll be 14 on the 19th.

CLINIC: Okay. What was the date of your last period?

CALLER: January 15th.

CLINIC: You had one in January.

CALLER: Right. That’s when my last one started.

CLINIC: So right now you’re about eight weeks.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: I don’t think I have any openings until
next week.

CALLER: Would that be all right?

CLINIC: You’re still okay, yeah.

CALLER: Well, I haven’t taken a pregnancy test yet. Would you guys do that there just to make sure beforehand?

CLINIC: No, we don’t normally. I mean, you haven’t taken one?


CLINIC: Do that first.

CALLER: Okay. Well, where shall I go to get one?

CLINIC: You can just get one of the ones over the counter.

CALLER: Oh. Are those usually right?

CLINIC: They’re pretty accurate.

CALLER: If it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control from you guys. It’s just me and my boyfriend don’t want to have to worry about all this anymore.

CLINIC: Right. Well, to be honest, because you’re going to have to pay for everything, you might want to go through Planned Parenthood. They have a teen program.

CALLER: Would they have to tell anybody?



CLINIC: All right?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: All right?

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: So find out first if you’re pregnant.

CALLER: And then call you back?


CALLER: Well, when do you normally have your appointments and stuff?

CLINIC: What do you mean? We’re a regular doctor’s office. But as I said, I won’t have anything until, I know, at least next week.

CALLER: It’s just my boyfriend would have to take off work to bring me, so I need to tell him.

CLINIC: We could give you enough time so that he could get the time off.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: All right?

CALLER: Okay. Thank you.

CLINIC: All righty.
