CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. How can I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there?
CLINIC: No, we don’t.
CALLER: Oh. Well, do you know of any place that does?
CLINIC: Hold on for just a minute.
CALLER: Thank you.
CLINIC: (pause) Thank you for holding. How may I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering about getting an abortion, but she —
CLINIC: We don’t do that service here. I can give you referral information.
CALLER: Okay. I actually had a question. Like I’m just worried because like my friend told me that since like I’ll be 14 in March that you guys would have to tell my parents I’m getting an abortion. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever and —
CLINIC: These are questions that you can certainly check out with — I’m going to give you two numbers here to call.
CLINIC: And definitely ask these questions of them.
CLINIC: Okay? Dr. Philip Waterman — 941-574-8200. And Ft. Myers Women’s Health Center — 941-936-4494.
CALLER: Okay. Well, could I come in there for like a pregnancy test?
CLINIC: You can get your pregnancy test here.
CALLER: Okay. I’m just really scared because like my last period was like December 14, and I don’t know. I’m just really worried.
CLINIC: Okay. Now we close at 5:00 today and then we’ll be open tomorrow from 9 to 2.
CALLER: Well, if the pregnancy test here ended up being that I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys have birth control there?
CLINIC: Yes, we do. In fact, we have a teen clinic on Thursday afternoons from 2:30 to 5:30 that you may want to get some information on.
CALLER: Well, would you guys have to tell anybody that I was on birth control?
CLINIC: No. Everything is confidential.
CALLER: Okay. Is it all right if my boyfriend’s there with me? I just would feel better if he was there. Would that be all right?
CLINIC: He can wait in the waiting room, sure.
CALLER: Okay. But would you guys have to ask any questions or have him sign anything? He just —
CLINIC: No. He doesn’t need to sign anything.
CALLER: Because we just don’t want anybody to know about us. So.
CLINIC: Okay, but he’d be welcome to come, sure.
CALLER: Well, if I had any other questions, could I call and talk to you?
CALLER: What’s your name?
CLINIC: And you might want, if you have a lot of questions, you know, we can have an educator talk to you. There’s no one available right now.
CALLER: Oh. Well, what’s your name then?
CLINIC: Well, my name is Nancy.
CALLER: Who’s the educator?
CLINIC: That would either be Andrea or Jodie.
CALLER: Should I ask for them instead do you think?
CLINIC: If you come in, you get the pregnancy test, you have a lot of questions, then why don’t you ask to talk to them?
CALLER: All right.
CALLER: Thank you.
CLINIC: Bye bye.
