CLINIC: Thank you for calling Orlando Women’s Center. Princess speaking. How may I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling to see if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: Yes, we do.
CALLER: How much does it cost for that?
CLINIC: How many week are you?
CALLER: I’m not really sure.
CLINIC: Do you know the first day of your last period?
CALLER: January 3rd.
CLINIC: You’re right now about nine weeks.
CALLER: Nine weeks?
CALLER: Okay. So how much would it be then?
CALLER: All right. The thing 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. Could he just sign whatever it is, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: No, we don’t tell anybody. There’s no age requirement, sweetie.
CALLER: The thing is, my boyfriend and I were talking about all this, and we decided we don’t want anyone to know about us. But he’s going to pay for everything with cash. Would he have to sign anything or fill out any forms?
CLINIC: He will have to be here if he’s paying. I mean, if he’s paying cash, he can just give you the money. But if you get anesthesia, you’re going to need a driver.
CALLER: Okay. Well, he said that he would be there.
CLINIC: Well, then you’d be fine.
CALLER: All right. Do you guys do like a pregnancy test beforehand just to make sure?
CLINIC: Yeah. Did you take a pregnancy test though?
CLINIC: Well, I think you should take an at-home pregnancy test first so you don’t waste your time coming here and spend the whole day here and then told you’re not pregnant.
CALLER: Are those usually right though?
CLINIC: Huh? Yeah, EPT.
CLINIC: So just get an EPT at least to be safe. Because you have to be here four to six hours. It’s like an all-day affair. And then you go through everything, and then get told you’re not even pregnant, that’s a waste of time.
CALLER: Okay. Well, if I wasn’t pregnant, could I come in there for birth control?
CLINIC: We don’t do any pap smears right now, but you might want to call Planned Parenthood. I know they do it.
CALLER: Oh, okay. But would they have to tell anybody if I was on birth control though?
CALLER: Oh, okay?
CLINIC: All right.
CALLER: If I had any other questions, could I call and talk to you? What was your name again?
CLINIC: Princess. Okay, sweetie?
CLINIC: No problem. Bye.
