The interior of a clandestine abortion clinique in Metro Manila. The procedure here is safe, performed by a trained nurse and only after a proper examination and confirmation from a gynecologist. However, anesthesia is not provided and the procedure of vacuum absorption is extremely painful for the patient. Some cry or even faint on a table. The nurse working in the clinic is worried that this is probably why a lot of women are still turning towards more dangerous, but less painful services of traditional healers (hilots) or the use of various medications.
