(Dialing, phone ringing 3x)

CLINIC: Dr. Boor’s (ph) office.

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling to see if you guys do abortions there.

CLINIC: We do.

CALLER: Okay. Well, how much does that cost?

CLINIC: It depends on how far along you are.

CALLER: Well, how do you know how far along you are?

CLINIC: Well, you have to have an ultra sound or when your last period was.

CALLER: Well, my last period was January 3rd.

CLINIC: Okay. If you’re under 12 weeks it’s $350.

CALLER: The thing is, I’m going to be 14 on the 20th, and my friend said you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: No. If you’re 14, you need to have your parents’ consent.

CALLER: Oh. Is there any way not to have to tell them?

CLINIC: No. You would have to tell them if you’re 14.

CALLER: But I can’t tell them.

CLINIC: That’s state law.

CALLER: But I can’t tell them. They can’t find out at all. I mean, if they found out that me and my boyfriend were having sex I don’t know what they would do.

CLINIC: I don’t know what to tell you. You have to have a parent’s consent if you’re 14.

CALLER: Well, is there anybody that I could go to?

CLINIC: The problem is it’s Oregon state law. You’ve got to figure something out.

CALLER: Is there any other state I could go to?

CLINIC: I don’t know. They’re probably a little more strict. You might try Washington and see what their limit is.

CALLER: Do you have a number for anyplace in Washington?

CLINIC: I don’t.

CALLER: Oh, okay. All right. I just have to get a pregnancy test really. Do you guys do that there?

CLINIC: No. You can go buy one at the store.

CALLER: Oh. But are those usually right?

CLINIC: Yeah, they’re very correct and accurate.

CALLER: Really?

CLINIC: Um-hmm.

CALLER: Well, if turned out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?

CLINIC: You would have to go through your doctor or through like a — if cost is an issue, a county health department would be able to give you some for a very minimal price.

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend said that he would pay for everything.

CLINIC: Well, not if you’re not a patient right now.

CALLER: Well, could I be a patient and get birth control?

CLINIC: Not at this time. We’re not accepting patients. We’re seeing people for abortion.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, when do you normally see people for pregnancy tests and birth control?

CLINIC: We don’t usually do pregnancy tests because people can buy them themselves.

CALLER: Oh, okay. When do you guys normally see people for birth control? My boyfriend told me to call you guys, so that’s why I’m trying to —

CLINIC: Well, the first thing you need to do is to see if you’re pregnant or not. That’s the big issue.

CALLER: Well, do you think that there’s like — I just haven’t had my period since January 3rd. Do you think that there’s any way that I’m not pregnant?

CLINIC: You have to have a test.

CALLER: Oh, okay.


CALLER: All right. So if I take a pregnancy test, could I call you back and ask —

(Phone ringing)

CLINIC: You’re going to have to hold on, okay?

CALLER: Oh, all right.

(Short pause)

CLINIC: Go ahead.

CALLER: Well, I was just wondering, if I took the pregnancy test and it came out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I call you? What was your name?

CLINIC: My name’s Angie.

CALLER: Oh, all right.

CLINIC: But you need to get established with a clinic to get some birth control.

CALLER: Oh, okay.


CALLER: All right. Thank you.

CLINIC: Bye bye.
