CALLER: Okay. Well do you know like — my friend told me that, like I’ll be 14 in March, and she said that I would have to have my parents sign some stuff.
CALLER: But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he sign whatever it is?
CALLER: Like, so is there any way not to have to tell my parents, because I don’t know what they would do if they —
CLINIC: Not in Indiana. You can go in Illinois, but not in Indiana.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, so would it be okay to come in there and get like a pregnancy test?
CALLER: And you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CALLER: Okay. Well, so would it be okay if my boyfriend brings me because that’s the only way I’d be able to get there.

CALLER: Okay, thanks.
CLINIC: Uh-huh. Bye bye.
