I called the Planned Parenting line, and the nearest center near me is 45 minutes away in Manhattan. This SUCKS. It really does. However, I do live near an emergency room. Could I go there for stuff such as condoms or pregnancy tests? Could they give me EC? I'm only 16, and I'd rather do it without my parents invovled.


My hopes are so high, that your kiss might kill me.
So won't you kill me?
So I'd die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst.
To break or bury, or wear as jewelry.
Whichever you prefer.

You could go to a drugstore, grocery store, or even Wal-Mart for condoms and pregnancy tests. EC can be gotten from an emergency room, doctor, urgent care clinic, or sexual health clinic. Look up 'clinics' in your phone book to see what's out there. PP isn't your only option.

Just a little note. It is called Planned Parenthood, not parenting. I hope you were calling the right place.

They have a website. They have a section for finding a center near you:

My son to my 20 something brother: Why are you a boy?
My brother: why are you a boy?
My son: cause I have a penis. Do you have a penis?
my brother: beat red, high tails it out of the room

also, PP doesn't have the monopoly on low-cost reproductive health care. Check out what your city, state and county health departments provide! Or look in your local phone book under either "familiy planning" or "abortions" (just call the clinics and ask them if they offer contraception and reproductive health services because you really don't need the abortion).
