    Fundamental rights of all to go for a clinic and not something that courts can order. Viloating the rights.
    As well, allowing the other to sleep with them at a price is two individuals right.
    HR, open your eyes.

    These prostitutes have a better self respect than the women NGO activists who have gone to Geneva to betray Sri Lanka.
