CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. Can I help you?

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there.

CLINIC: No, ma’am. Let me give you the number that does. You ready?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: 531-7526.

CALLER: Where is that exactly?

CLINIC: That’s on Forest Parkway, down by Boeing* Hospital.

CALLER: Is it all right if I ask you a quick question?

CLINIC: Uh-huh, go ahead.

CALLER: My friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March that you my parents have to sign some stuff. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of that?

CLINIC: Actually, how old are you?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Okay. Hold on. Hold one second.



CLINIC: Ma’am?


CLINIC: I’m not really sure. Go ahead and call the number for me, and they can answer any questions that you have about that situation, okay?


CLINIC: Because I’m not really sure.

CALLER: I actually had a couple of other questions. It’s just that I’m scared because my last period was December 14th, and I don’t what to do. Could I come in there for a pregnancy test maybe?

CLINIC: Now that you can do. You can come in here for a pregnancy test. You can do that. They are $10, okay?

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend said he would pay for everything.

CLINIC: That’s fine.

CALLER: Is it all right if he’s there with me?

CLINIC: That’s fine.

CALLER: Well, could he sign for the test?

CLINIC: For the pregnancy test?


CLINIC: You can do that yourself. You don’t need a consent for the pregnancy test. But as far as the abortion part, you need to call them because I’m not really sure.

CALLER: Well, does anybody have to know that I’m getting a pregnancy test there?

CLINIC: No, ma’am.

CALLER: Oh, okay.


CALLER: Well, if the pregnancy test turned out negative, could I get birth control?

CLINIC: Yeah, we can make you an appointment for one our teen clinics and start getting birth control if you’re not pregnant.

CALLER: Well, how soon could I get birth control?

CLINIC: You have to wait until the next available teen clinic. Since you’re 13, I’m pretty sure you don’t have really any income.

CALLER: Right, I don’t have a job.

CLINIC: Right. So we want to put you on one of our teen clinic days where you don’t have to pay for anything. And that’s some time in March, okay? So you’re going to come in today for the pregnancy test?

CALLER: I’d have to call my boyfriend and see. But if I was on birth control, could my boyfriend come and pick it up? Because I don’t have any way to — I can’t drive to come get it.

CLINIC: Right. I understand, honey. First you have to get here for an appointment, first off.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: So first try to get here for the pregnancy test, and we’ll work from there. We’ll make your appointments or whatever we need to do before you leave here.

CALLER: Okay. If I had any other questions, could I call and talk to you? What was your name?

CLINIC: Yes, you can. My name is Kowanna (ph). You can call me back if you need to.

CALLER: Okay. Thanks.



CLINIC: Bye bye.
