PATCHOGUE, NY 11772-1555

TAPE – 078

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood of Patchogue (unclear). How can I help you?

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

CLINIC: We do pregnancy testing, and we confirm the duration of the pregnancy so that we know what type of an abortion you would want if that’s what you want, give you all your options, and then we would help you figure out where you need to go.

CALLER: Okay. So do you know how much it will cost or anything?

CLINIC: For which thing?

CALLER: For the pregnancy test.

CLINIC: About $20. Did you want to schedule?

CALLER: Well, I’d have to talk to my boyfriend. But do you know if they have to tell my parents or anything?

CLINIC: No, of course not.

CALLER: Okay. Well it’s just my parents can’t find out at all.

CLINIC: That’s fine.

CALLER: My boyfriend’s 22, and we’re plan on getting married. But they think he’s too old for me. And if they found out we were having sex, they would totally freak.

CLINIC: Well, none of that is any concern of ours. Okay?

CALLER: Is there an age requirement to have an abortion?

CLINIC: No, hon.

CALLER: I’m going to be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Okay. So you just need to come in.

CALLER: Do you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: Okay. And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody about that either?

CLINIC: No, hon.

CALLER: Is it okay if I call my boyfriend, and then call you guys back?

CLINIC: Sure, of course.

CALLER: What was your name?

CLINIC: I’m Janet, but it doesn’t matter. You can talk to anybody here.

CALLER: All right. Thanks.

CLINIC: Bye bye.
