We see a man and a woman appear to be engaged in active sex with the man above the woman (they both appear fully clothed) and the woman's legs around the man's waist as he appears to be thrusting.

A man is raping a young woman in exchange for performing an abortion: he thrusts above the young woman (he appears to be wearing boxer-style underwear) while the young woman's legs are seen wrapped around the man's waist and she is crying.

We see a fully nude man (his bare back and genitals are seen). We see a shirtless young boy (his bare chest and back are visible).

A man (posing as a doctor) asks a woman if she wants an abortion and he remarks that he could go to jail for performing the procedure; the man then implies that he will ask the young woman to perform a sex act in order to pay for the abortion and instructs her to come back later in the day. We hear a young woman's voice over saying that she had sex with a young man and that her brother had his suspicions; the voice over implies that she is pregnant and needs to go into town to have an abortion. A young woman implies to a pharmacist that she would like to buy medication to cause her to abort; the man scolds her and tells her that no amount of money would purchase medication to self-abort.
