CLINIC: Thank you for calling Planned Parenthood. This is Leslie (sp). How can I help you?

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

CLINIC: Not here, but I can give you the number that will connect you to the Ft. Worth or the Dallas clinic that does.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: Okay. It’s 817-882-1175.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — like I’m just worried because like I’ll be 14 in March, and my friend said that they would have to tell my parents I’m getting an abortion. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of that and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: I’m really not sure. You’d really have to talk to the clinic that does that.

CALLER: Oh, okay.


CALLER: Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test though?

CLINIC: Yes, you can. They’re $18 cash or credit card. And it’s on a walk-in basis, and we’re open to 7:00 tonight, but you’ll need to be here by 6:00. And we go to lunch from 1:00 to 2:00, so just avoid that.

CALLER: Well, do you know if anyone would have to know that I’m in there for a pregnancy test though?

CLINIC: No. And it gets entered into the computer as Jane Doe.

CALLER: Oh, okay.

CLINIC: All right?

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend would be the only way I could get there. Would that be all right?

CLINIC: Oh, yeah. That’s fine.

CALLER: Okay. He said that he was going to pay everything, for everything, but does he have to sign for anything?

CLINIC: No, no, not at all. In fact, do you know that you’re pregnant?

CALLER: Well, not really. I’m just worried because I haven’t had my period since like right before Christmas, probably like December 21st. So.

CLINIC: Okay. Well, as long — it takes 14 days from the day you could have conceived before it will show up on a pregnancy test. It sounds like it’s been long enough.

CALLER: Well, if I wasn’t pregnant, could I get on birth control then?

CLINIC: Well, on birth control? You’d have to make an appointment.


CLINIC: And then come in for the well-woman exam which is $66, and we have both the depo provera shot that you take every three months, or the birth control pills which you take every day.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, would you have to tell anybody that I was on birth control?


CALLER: Would you have to tell anybody that I was on birth control?

CLINIC: No, no. Everything is confidential here.

CALLER: Oh, okay.


CALLER: All right


CALLER: Okay, thanks.

CLINIC: Uh-huh. Bye bye.
