(Dialing, phone ringing 1x)

CLINIC: GYN Choices.

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: How far are you?

CALLER: I don’t know. How do you know?

CLINIC: When was the first day of your last period?

CALLER: January 3rd.

CLINIC: By your date, you’re a little bit over nine weeks. That’s going to be 350.

CALLER: Okay. The thing is, 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.

CLINIC: No, no, that’s not true.

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend’s 22. He could just take care of it, right?

CLINIC: No, that’s irrelevant. You could come in here by yourself. That’s irrelevant. And it’s a patient-doctor confidentiality. So even if your mom had found out and called here and wanted to verify that you were here, we wouldn’t be able to tell her anything without your consent.

CALLER: Me and my boyfriend were talking about this, and we don’t want anyone to know about him and me. Would he have to fill out any forms or anything if he was paying?

CLINIC: No. You would. There’s a form when you first come that you’ve got to fill out. It has like your last name, your first name, your middle name, sex, birth date, age, race, address, your home phone number, marital status, whether you’re employed. It’s just a little — do you know about your medical history like in your family?

CALLER: Oh, yeah.

CLINIC: Okay. As long as you know that, you’re fine.

CALLER: Oh, okay. So his name wouldn’t be on anything?

CLINIC: As long as you have the money and yourself, you’re fine. You don’t have to worry about anybody else besides you and your boyfriend knowing about it. Anybody else who knows will be somebody ya’ll tell.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: (Chuckle).

CALLER: Well, do you do the pregnancy test beforehand because I really haven’t had one of those yet.

CLINIC: Um-hmm.

CALLER: How much does it cost for that?

CLINIC: That’s included. That’s free.

CALLER: If it turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control from you guys? It’s just we don’t want to have to worry about this anymore.

CLINIC: Um, yeah.

CALLER: How much does it cost for birth control?

CLINIC: On the amount of time that you’re late, I think it’s more probable that you are pregnant.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: But we do an ultra sound and all that. They give you pills and everything.

CALLER: So you’re sure that nobody would have to know about me and my boyfriend, and you wouldn’t have to tell my parents or anybody?

CLINIC: Positive. You wouldn’t have been the first. Don’t worry about it. If that makes you feel any better.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Um-hmm.

CALLER: When do you guys have appointments?

CLINIC: I could give you an appointment for Saturday.

CALLER: What time on Saturday?

CLINIC: 8 a.m.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I have to call my boyfriend to see if he can take me. But can I call him and call you back? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name is Neika (ph).


CLINIC: What’s your name?






CLINIC: L-i-s-a?

CALLER: Right.

CLINIC: All right. I just wrote it down so I know what you’re talking about.

CALLER: Okay. So I’ll call you back.

CLINIC: All right.

CALLER: Okay, bye.
