CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. Can I help you?

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

CLINIC: No, we don’t.

CALLER: Do you know of anybody that does?

CLINIC: Contact Dayton.


CLINIC: Contact Dayton Abortion Clinic.

CALLER: Do you have the number for that?

CLINIC: 1-800-672-6810.

CALLER: Okay. Well, is it okay if I ask a quick question?


CALLER: Well, it’s just, my friend told me that my parents have to sign for something. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he take care of that?

CLINIC: I doubt it.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Um-hum.

CALLER: Because there’s just no way my parents can find out at all.

CLINIC: Well, if you’re under 18 years old —

CALLER: Well, I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: Well, you’re going to need parental consent.

CALLER: Is there any way not to do that because I don’t know what they would do if they found out.

CLINIC: No, ma’am. You’re going to have to have parental consent. You’re just a minor.

CALLER: Okay. Well, there’s just no way they can find out. Like what can I do?

CLINIC: Nothing. They’re going to have to find out. If you’re trying to get an abortion and you’re 14 years old, and you’re pregnant by a 22-year-old — first of all, that’s rape.

CALLER: But we’re in love. I don’t understand. That can’t be rape. We’re in love. We’re going to get married.

CLINIC: Law is rape. That is rape by law.

CALLER: Well, what can I do?

CLINIC: Well, you need to talk to your parents because you can’t get an abortion without their consent.

CALLER: But is it all right like if I came in there to get like a pregnancy test?

CLINIC: Yeah, you can do it Wednesday, Thursday from 2:00 to 4:00 —

CALLER: Would you guys have to tell anybody at all?

CLINIC: No. Well, depending on the type of information that you give us, yeah, we will have to turn him over to the authorities.

CALLER: But what if I just didn’t say anything?

CLINIC: That would be up to you.

CALLER: Okay. Well, so like if I didn’t say anything it would be all right and you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: Well, you just need to quit feeding me information now.

CALLER: Oh. All right. Well, like say the pregnancy test was negative. Do you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: Yes, we do.

CALLER: And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No, we wouldn’t.

CALLER: Okay. Is it all right if I call you back? Like I need to see if my boyfriend had any other questions. But could I call you back and talk to you?

CLINIC: You absolutely sure can.

CALLER: What was your name?

CLINIC: Shawn (sp).


CLINIC: All right.

CALLER: Thanks.

CLINIC: You’re welcome.


CLINIC: Bye bye.
