A 22-year-old massage therapist is now under observation in a hospital in Sampa-loc, Manila, after allegedly having an abortion and suffering certain implications.
The patient, said to be residing in Sampaloc, Manila, was said to have suffered complications two days after she had her four-month-old male fetus aborted.
Initial reports said that the woman was forced to have an abortion on orders of her boyfriend, identified as ‘Rommel’, 39, said to be an agent of the Land Transportation Franchising Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and residing at Tangerine St., Marikina City, whom she met only through Facebook.
Det. Jonathan Bautista of the Manila Police District- Crimes Against Persons Investigation Section (MPD-CAPIS) said the abortion took place at 3 p.m. of September 9 on Craig Street in Sampaloc.
The woman is said to be 32 weeks pregnant when she left home at 12 p.m. last September 9 purportedly to have an ultrasound. When she came back home two days later, she was said to be already running high fever and asked her landlady to take her to the hospital.
There, it was discovered that she had complications that stemmed from an abortion and that she could have died if she was not taken to the hospital.
Reportedly, the abortionist was recommended to the patient by a friend of hers and that she paid P10,000 for it.
The said abortionist, according to the police, was met by the woman at the Quiapo Church.
Charges are now being readied against the woman, her boyfriend and the abortionist.
