Listen to the Call:
302 N. ADAMS ST
GREEN BAY, WI 54301-5176
TAPE – 681
(dialing sound) (ringing 3X)
CLINIC: Planned Parenthood of Green Bay. This is Corinna. May I help you?
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling to see if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: No, we don’t.
CALLER: Oh. Well, do you know of anybody that does?
CLINIC: In Green Bay? Or do you want a Planned Parenthood? There’s one in Appleton, Planned Parenthood. Otherwise, there’s OB-GYN Associates in Green Bay.
CALLER: Probably the one in Appleton.
CLINIC: It’s 888-844-5771.
CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — it’s just — the thing is I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend told me you guys 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?
CLINIC: You’re going to either have to — and I don’t know the rules and you’ll have to ask them — but you’re going to have to either have an aunt or priest or a sister, somebody over the age of 18, sign for you.
CALLER: Well, my boyfriend’s 22.
CLINIC: I don’t think he counts. It’s got to be a family member.
CALLER: Oh. Okay.
CLINIC: If none of them can do it, you can go to a priest and have them do it or a pastor, whatever. Or you can get a court bypass.
CALLER: What’s a court bypass?
CLINIC: That they’ll have to explain to you because I don’t know. But just call and ask them.
CALLER: Okay. Well, could I come in there for a pregnancy test though just to make sure? It’s just I haven’t had my period since January 3 and we’re just really scared.
CLINIC: Have you taken one at home?
CALLER: Well, no.
CLINIC: Okay. You can come in here for one. They are $43.
CLINIC: You need to pay that at time of service.
CALLER: Okay. Well, my boyfriend said that he would pay for everything. It’s just, when we were talking about all this we didn’t want a whole bunch — we decided we didn’t want anybody to know about us. So if he was paying for it, would he have to sign anything?
CALLER: Oh, okay. Okay. But I could come in for a pregnancy test and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: Get here before 3:30 today.
CALLER: Okay. If it came out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control today too?
CLINIC: That you have to get an appointment for. They have to do like an exam and stuff before you go on.
CALLER: Okay. But does anyone have to know if I’m on birth control though?
CLINIC: All right?
CALLER: So thank you.
