TAPE – 559
(dialing sounds) (ringing 2X)
CLINIC: Good morning. Planned Parenthood.
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there?
CLINIC: No, we don’t.
CALLER: Well, do you know of any place that does?
CLINIC: There’s a place in Madison. There’s a place in Rockford. Neither one are Planned Parenthood. Did you want phone numbers?
CALLER: Yes, please.
CLINIC: Which one do you want, Madison or Rockford?
CALLER: Well I’m not really sure which one. But do you know — like I’m just worried because like my friend told me that since like — well I’ll be 14 next month.
CALLER: And she said that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he hold enough to take care of it and —
CALLER: — they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: You want to go to Rockford then. Don’t go to Madison.
CLINIC: Because in Wisconsin we’ve got parental consent where you’d have to tell your parents, but Rockford doesn’t.
CALLER: Well, what’s the number for Rockford then?
CLINIC: Yeah. Let me find it here for you. Here we go. 815-963-4101.
CALLER: Well, do you know if I could come there for a pregnancy test just to make sure?
CLINIC: You’re better to go —
CALLER: It’s just, I haven’t had my period yet since like December 21st, and that’s why I’m really worried.
CLINIC: Have you done a home test?
CALLER: No. I didn’t know that those were right.
CLINIC: Sure. The same thing we use.
CALLER: Oh. Well, I would just rather come in there to have you guys do it. But would that be all right?
CLINIC: You can. There’s a cost for it though.
CALLER: Oh. Well, my boyfriend said that he would pay for everything.
CALLER: It’s just, we were talking about all this, and we don’t want anyone to know about us.
CLINIC: That’s fine. Yeah.
CALLER: Would he have to sign anything though?
CALLER: If he’s paying for it?
CALLER: Oh, okay.
CLINIC: No. You can just come in.
CLINIC: Don’t come any later than 5:00.
CALLER: Oh, okay.
CALLER: If it ended up that I wasn’t pregnant, could I get birth control there?
CALLER: Well, would you have to tell anybody about that?
CLINIC: No. No.
CALLER: It’s just — okay. We just don’t want to have to worry about all this again. So.
CLINIC: Right. Right. As long as he’s paying for it, that’s fine.
CLINIC: All right?
CALLER: Well, I just have a lot of questions. I don’t know if —
CALLER: But if I think of something else, could I call and talk to you? What was your name?
CLINIC: My name’s Joleen.
CLINIC: Yep. You can call and talk to me any time.
CLINIC: Yep. Bye bye.
