TAPE – 392

(Dialing, phone ringing 2x)

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood, (?).

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

CLINIC: No, not here. In Appleton and in Milwaukee.

CALLER: Okay. Do you have the numbers for those?

CLINIC: Yeah. 1-800-472-2703.

CALLER: Is that for both of them?

CLINIC: It’s Milwaukee, but they can help you out.

CALLER: Okay. Well, could I ask a quick question? I’m just really worried. My friend told me that since I’ll be 14 in March, she said that they would have to tell my parents I’m getting an abortion. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever, and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?

CLINIC: You’re 14?

CALLER: Well, I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: You’re not even 14?


CLINIC: You’re not even 14?

CALLER: I’ll be 14 in March.

CLINIC: And your boyfriend’s 22?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: I don’t know. He’s probably going to get in trouble.

CALLER: What kind of trouble? What do you mean?

CLINIC: You’re a minor. And you have to be a 25-year-old — I do believe it’s a 25-year-old relative at the least; otherwise, under 18 you have to be with a parent.

CALLER: Well, my parents can’t find out at all. I mean, they know that we’re going out. They just hate him because they think he’s too old for me. But if they found out that we were having sex, I don’t know what they would do.

CLINIC: That’s what happens. He should have known better.

CALLER: Well, what can I do? I just don’t know what to do.

CLINIC: And you’re positive that you’re pregnant?

CALLER: Well, no. I was wanting to come in for a pregnancy test because —

CLINIC: I think you should.


CLINIC: Did you miss a period?

CALLER: Yeah. Well, I haven’t had my period since December 14th.

CLINIC: Have you ever been here before?


CLINIC: So you’re 13. Are you able to get here?

CALLER: Well, my boyfriend would be able to take me. Would he get in trouble?

CLINIC: No, no, not here. I’m just saying let’s say you were — I don’t know. I don’t know what would happen. But here, no. This is all confidential.

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: What’s your name?

CALLER: It’s Christine.

CLINIC: Christine?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

CLINIC: Do you spell it with a “C”?


CLINIC: C-h-r-i-s-t-i-n-e?


CLINIC: And last name?

CALLER: Smith.

CLINIC: S-m-i-t-h?


CLINIC: And you’ve never been here before you said?

CALLER: Right.

CLINIC: We close at 2. Are you able to get here before then?

CALLER: I would have to call him and see, but I think so.

CLINIC: Okay. Maybe call a cab or something, whatever, but you need to get your butt in here, okay?

CALLER: Okay. If I wasn’t pregnant, could you guys do birth control there?

CLINIC: Yeah. Yeah, definitely.

CALLER: But would anybody have to know that I was on birth control?

CLINIC: No, no.

CALLER: All right. And you wouldn’t have to tell anybody about my boyfriend or anything?

CLINIC: No, no.

CALLER: Would it be okay if he picked up the birth control? Because I can’t drive.

CLINIC: Yeah. That would be fine if he came in here to pick them up for you.

CALLER: I just have a lot of questions, and I don’t know what to do. Could I call and talk to you if I thought of anything else? What’s your name?

CLINIC: Angelica.


CLINIC: Yeah, just make sure you get in here. And we can talk to you about everything too, okay?


CLINIC: All right. Make sure you call somebody and get over here, okay?

CALLER: All right.

CLINIC: All right. Bye.
