"Closing [the Morgentaler Clinic] doesn’t make abortions stop. And it also doesn’t force people to comply to an arbitrary system. What it does do is to force people into unsafe abortion procedures and put their lives at risk or continue with an unwanted pregnancy. Why? Because limiting access limits choice."

"Because of stigma and marginalization, sex workers face numerous risks to their well-being. HIV is just one of them, but HIV is often a symptom of human rights violations, such as lack of access to health care, legal protection and the right to make a living.
