CLINIC: Centralia Planned Parenthood. This is Linda. May I help you?

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

CLINIC: No, we do not. There isn’t a facility in Lewis County. The closest would be Olympia.

CALLER: Okay. Well, do you have the number for that?

CLINIC: Yes. Can you hold for a moment?


CLINIC: Thanks.


CLINIC: Okay. Thanks for holding. One place is Eastside Women’s Health. Are you calling long distance to Olympia?

CALLER: No, I’m from Oakville.

CLINIC: Okay. It’s 367-943-5127. I have an 888 number if you were long distance. And the other location in Olympia is Sound Choice Health Center. And that is 360-456-0291.


CLINIC: Okay? And you call each of them, and they can give you information on what their services are and their prices, et cetera.

CALLER: I’m just kind of worried. I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend told me that they would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever it is, and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody anything?

CLINIC: You’ll need to go over that with them.

CALLER: The main reason why I’m worried about all this is my last period was December 26th, and I’m just scared.

CLINIC: And you said you’re 14?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 on the 9th.

CLINIC: Okay. I would give that information to both of those facilities and see what their rules are.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test to see though?

CLINIC: To confirm if you are?


CLINIC: Have you gotten a positive pregnancy test?

CALLER: Well, no. I just haven’t had my period since like the day after Christmas.

CLINIC: Yes, you can. This afternoon we’ll be testing between 12:30 and 3:30. And what we will do is, if you are, we’ll set the time based on when your last period was.

CALLER: Okay. Would you have to tell anybody if I was getting a pregnancy test though?

CLINIC: No. No, not at all.

CALLER: Well, how much does that cost?

CLINIC: It’s free.

CALLER: Oh, okay. If it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there too?

CLINIC: We could make you an appointment to get your started on birth control. You bet.

CALLER: Well, would anybody have to know if I was on birth control though?

CLINIC: No. There’s the steps that you could carry through on confidentiality.

CALLER: The only thing is I can’t drive. Would my boyfriend be able to pick up the pills?

CLINIC: Yes. You could make him the person that could pick up your pills for you.

CALLER: Okay. Would you have to say anything about him?

CLINIC: No. If you go under the confidentiality we should be okay.


CLINIC: This afternoon between 12:30 and 3:30.

CALLER: Okay. Thanks.

CLINIC: Um-hmm. Bye bye.
