OFFICES OF DR. KEYS
222 N 2ND ST.
BOISE, ID 93702
TAPE – 844
(Dialing, phone ringing 2x)
CLINIC: Dr. Keith’s (sp) office.
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: The fee for that procedure is $440, and that amount has to be paid for in cash money only. We do not accept checks or charges.
CALLER: Okay. Well, my boyfriend said he would pay for everything in cash. But the thing is, we’re kind of worried because 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. Is he old enough to take care of it, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: No. With Idaho law you have to have parental consent —
CLINIC: — if you’re 17 and under.
CALLER: Well, is there any way not to have to tell my parents?
CLINIC: You have to get a court junction.
CALLER: Okay. Well, how do you do that?
CLINIC: If you want, you could call Planned Parenthood of Idaho for information, and they would be able to help you do that.
CALLER: Okay. Well, does the judge usually say yes?
CLINIC: That I don’t know. They have more familiarity with that than I do.
CALLER: Well, do you know if I need a lawyer or anything?
CLINIC: I think they help you take care of all of that.
CALLER: Could I come in there for a pregnancy test?
CLINIC: Actually it’s still with a consent law.
CALLER: So if I go to the judge and he said it was okay —
CLINIC: You should go to Planned Parenthood for a test.
CALLER: Oh, really?
CLINIC: So what you probably need to do is call them first and see what you need to do.
CALLER: So Planned Parenthood wouldn’t have to have my parents’ consent for a pregnancy test then?
CLINIC: That I’m not sure about. But call them and they’ll let you know for sure.
CALLER: All right.
CLINIC: Bye bye.
