(dialing sounds) (ringing 1X)

CLINIC: Good afternoon. Warrensburg Planned Parenthood. Can I help you?

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t.

CALLER: Oh, well, do you know of anybody that does?

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood Comprehensive Health in Overland Park, Kansas does them. And the Planned Parenthood in Columbia.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you have the one in, the first one you said? Do you have the phone number?

CLINIC: 1-800-227-1918.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — like I’m just really worried because my friend told me that since like I’m going to be 14 in March and she said that —

CLINIC: You’re what?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March?

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: And she said that they would have to tell my parents I was getting an abortion. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just —

CLINIC: That doesn’t make any difference.

CALLER: Sign everything?

CLINIC: No. It has to be parents. You have to — is Kansas parents’ notification or parents consent?

CLINIC: Under 18 there has to be a guardian.

CLINIC: There has to be a guardian there that the court has appointed —

CLINIC: A parent or a parent for a legal guardian. If they don’t want to tell their parents they can get a judicial bypass and (unclear) would have to tell them how to do that. They have a judge and everything.

CLINIC: But you can call that number I just gave you and tell them and they can get a judicial bypass.

CALLER: What is that?

CLINIC: It’s a legal thing that says you can get it without your parents knowing it.

CALLER: Oh. Well, would there be — do I need a lawyer for that or anything?

CLINIC: No. You have to call up there.

CALLER: Oh. Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: Have you already done one?


CLINIC: Well, how do you know you’re pregnant?

CALLER: Well, I haven’t had my period since like December 14, and I’m scared.

CLINIC: Are your periods normal?

CALLER: Usually.

CLINIC: Every month?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Pregnancy tests are $18.

CALLER: Okay. Well, is it all right — like I would want my boyfriend to be there with me. Is that all right?

CLINIC: All it is is a urine test. You know?


CLINIC: We don’t — that’s all we could —

CALLER: But he could bring me in?


CALLER: Okay. It’s just — we were talking about it, and we don’t want anyone to know about us. Would you guys have to have him sign anything or anything?

CLINIC: No, but you’re going to fill out paperwork.

CALLER: Oh, all right. But you guys wouldn’t have to tell my parents that I was there?

CLINIC: No, but someone might see you out here that knows you.


CLINIC: You know, that we don’t have any control over.

CALLER: Oh. Well, if I wasn’t pregnant –

CLINIC: Well, you could go to WalMart and get you a pregnancy test.

CALLER: Oh. Well, either way, if I wasn’t pregnant could I get a birth control? Could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: Uh-huh.

CALLER: Would you guys have to tell anybody that I was on birth control?


CALLER: Okay. Do you know if the pregnancy tests like at Walmart are usually accurate?

CLINIC: They are if you follow the directions.

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

CLINIC: Certainly. Julie.

CALLER: Okay. Thank you.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Bye.
