(Dialing, phone ringing)
CLINIC: Planned Parenthood, Rape Crisis Service. Becky speaking. Can I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. Do you guys do abortion there?
CLINIC: We refer you. But the first step is to come to Planned Parenthood for a pregnancy test, then we can do referrals and stuff for you.
CALLER: Okay. Do you guys have to tell my parents about anything?
CALLER: I just can’t tell my parents. My boyfriend’s 22, and we’re going to get married. But they think he’s too old for me.
CLINIC: I see. Okay. Can you hold on for just a minute?
CLINIC: Thank you.
CLINIC: Thanks for holding. And what’s your name?
CALLER: My name is Christine.
CLINIC: Last name, Christine?
CLINIC: And your date of birth?
CALLER: It’s March 19, 1988.
CLINIC: Did you want to set up an appointment?
CALLER: Well, I’d have to talk to my boyfriend to see —
CLINIC: Oh, okay.
CALLER: — if he can get off work. But you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody at all?
CLINIC: No, no. We’re a confidential agency, okay?
CLINIC: It is expensive. The pregnancy test itself is only 15 to $17, something like that. And then if you were to go for the abortion through Planned Parenthood, it would be $460.
CALLER: Oh, okay.
CLINIC: Just to let you know up front. But we can do referrals and stuff for you like that after the pregnancy test.
CALLER: Okay. If like after the pregnancy test, I wasn’t pregnant, do you guys do birth control there?
CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody about that either?
CLINIC: The only thing we can’t control is who sees you come in here, okay? You know what I mean?
CLINIC: But your first step would be to find out whether you’re pregnant or not. Okay?
CALLER: So like if my boyfriend had questions, is it all right if I call you back?
CLINIC: Sure, no problem.
CALLER: And what was your name?
CLINIC: My name is Becky.
CALLER: Cool. Thanks.
CLINIC: All righty. Bye bye.
