CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. This is Gwen. How may I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: No, we do not.
CALLER: Do you know of any place that does?
CLINIC: You’ll have to check the Yellow Pages and your phone books.
CALLER: Oh, okay.
CLINIC: Okay? Otherwise you can come down and we might be able to give you some information.
CALLER: Okay. Do you guys do pregnancy tests there?
CLINIC: Yes, we do.
CALLER: Do you guys have to tell my parents or anything about that? Like I’ll be 14 in March. Is that okay?
CLINIC: Yes. We do not tell your parents.
CALLER: Okay. Is it okay brings me?
CALLER: Because I don’t know how else I would get there. Could he sign for me and everything, because he’s 22.
CLINIC: You can sign for yourself.
CALLER: Oh, okay. If I wasn’t pregnant, and the pregnancy test there showed that, would you guys be able to do birth control?
CALLER: Would you be able to do it like right away.
CLINIC: Well, I’m not sure about tonight. Were you coming down for a pregnancy test tonight?
CALLER: No. My boyfriend would have to get off work and everything.
CLINIC: Well, let me let Carol make an appointment, okay?
CALLER: All right.
CLINIC: Hang on.
CLINIC: Okay. We can do a pregnancy test. And then if you’re not, then we can do an exam. But if you’re pregnant, we can’t do an exam, okay?
CLINIC: I do have some openings this Thursday. Are you available then?
CALLER: I’d have to call my boyfriend and see, but I think so, maybe. But you don’t have to tell my parents or anything or anybody?
CLINIC: No, we don’t.
CLINIC: I can tell you what I have open. I have openings from 1:30 to 3:45 or I have a 4:30 or 4:45 or a 5 open. And that’s on Thursday.
CLINIC: But you need to get back with me right away because they fill in, okay?
CALLER: Okay. What was your name again?
CLINIC: My name is Carol.
CLINIC: All right?
CLINIC: Yep. Bye bye.
