CLINIC: Good morning, Planned Parenthood.
CALLER: Hi. Do you guys do abortions there?
CLINIC: Excuse me?
CALLER: Do you do abortions there?
CLINIC: Okay. That’s not something we discuss over the phone.
CLINIC: Are you pregnant?
CALLER: Well, I took a pregnancy over the weekend, and they said it was positive.
CLINIC: Okay. What we do is you’d have to come in here for a pregnancy test. And if it is positive, then the nurse will talk to you about all your options.
CALLER: Okay. Do you know if they have to tell my parents about this at all?
CALLER: I can’t tell my parents because my boyfriend’s 22. And we’re going to get married and everything, but my parents hate him. And if they found out that we were having sex —
CLINIC: No. Everything is confidential. How old are you?
CALLER: I’m going to be 14 in March.
CLINIC: Okay. Have you ever been here?
CLINIC: Do you want to make an appointment for a pregnancy test?
CALLER: I would have to talk to him and see when he can get off work, because he’d be the only one that could bring me.
CLINIC: Okay. So get in touch with him and give us a call back.
CALLER: Okay. And you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody at all?
CLINIC: No. That’s confidential.
CALLER: If I wasn’t pregnant or anything, say like I did it wrong or whatever, would you guys be able to do birth control?
CLINIC: Yeah. Well, that would be another appointment. First you come in for a pregnancy test.
CALLER: But they wouldn’t have to tell anybody, right?
CLINIC: No. It’s confidential.
CALLER: Is it okay if I call you back?
CALLER: What was your name?
CLINIC: Just call here. I’ll answer.
CALLER: Well, how do I know it’s you instead of someone else?
CLINIC: Nobody else is here.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, what was your name?
CALLER: Lana? All right. Okay. Thanks.
