"PPIL has opened my eyes to a world that is often forgotten by middle class people, women's health! Without PPIL thousands of women every year would be left out of the health care system." - Anonymous, Sept 09
"... [W]omen need the right to an abortion, as well as sex education, and access to birth control. If abortions were illegal, women that were determined enough would still receive them... As for comprehensive sex education, if women are to [be] safe, they need to know all the facts. So many women and teenage girls have incomplete or incorrect knowledge about sex, pregnancy and abortion. This needs to be changed." - Ben, Age 16
