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.

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
