CLINIC: Good morning, Planned Parenthood of Yonkers. Kadea (ph) speaking. How can I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. Do you guys do abortions there?
CLINIC: No, only White Plains and New Rochelle.
CALLER: Okay. Do you have that phone number?
CLINIC: Uh-huh. Which one?
CALLER: Just both of them, I guess.
CLINIC: Both of them? Okay. White Plains is 761-6566. And New Rochelle is 632-4442.
CALLER: My friend told me that you guys have to tell my parents before I can have an abortion. Is that true?
CLINIC: No. But let me find out if that’s a new law here. Hold on, okay?
CALLER: All right.
RECORDING: Planned Parenthood fees are on a sliding fee scale based on income and family size. Special consideration is made regarding the income for teens 17 and under. Testing for chlamydia and —
CLINIC: No, everything is still confidential.
CALLER: Okay. If my parents found out — my boyfriend’s 22, and we’re planning on getting married and everything. We’re in love, but my parents think he’s too old. And they just can’t find out at all.
CLINIC: Oh, no. Everything is still confidential. You don’t have to worry about that.
CALLER: Do you know if there’s any age limit on having an abortion or anything?
CLINIC: Not at all.
CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.
CLINIC: Not at all.
CALLER: Okay. I also have another question. Do you guys do birth control there too?
CLINIC: Yes, at each Planned Parenthood, yes. At the time of your exam, they can offer you birth control at the same time.
CALLER: And no one would have to know about that either?
CLINIC: No, not at all.
CALLER: All right. Can I talk to you later? Can I call you back?
CLINIC: Okay. It gets really busy here, so I might not have that much chance to talk to you.
CALLER: I like you. You’re nice. What was your name?
CLINIC: My name is Kadea.
CLINIC: Did you already have a positive pregnancy testing?
CALLER: Well, I took one over the weekend. It said it was positive.
CLINIC: Do you want to come in for pregnancy counseling, so you can speak to a counselor at the same time?
CALLER: I have to talk to my boyfriend and see.
CLINIC: Okay. If you can do that, then call me back. And we can probably get you in this evening for that, okay?
CALLER: Okay. Thanks.
CLINIC: Bye bye. You’re welcome
