As someone that has worked in the system this infuriates me. I don’t understand how we think criminalization and involvement of #socialservices in this situation will do anything BUT further #traumatize this family. 1/
On FB I read ‘pearl clutching’ comments that this had occurred two times already. We are in a surreal time, most of us trying to get by. I wonder 💭 how many of those making judgmental comments have struggled to access necessary resources and been placed in a situation where 2/

Thread on #DreamAndPromise Act and #Criminalization🧵:

Despite efforts to improve the bill and eliminate the harmful criminalization bars that will exclude thousands of Black and brown youth, the bill remains the same.

A (HAPPY) THREAD: The #Montréal city council today passed a motion to call on the #GOC to decriminalize possession of drugs for personal use. We @HIVlegal applaud this initiative and congratulate all who fiercely advocated for it. We are proud to stand among you. #drugpolicy 1/7
Today’s motion joins the growing call for #decriminalization in municipalities across Canada, including #Toronto, #Vancouver, and others. Cities now recognize the many harms of #criminalization, which marginalizes people who use drugs and pushes them away from #harmreduction. 2/7
Removing the threat of criminal law will allow people who use drugs to do so more safely. Lives will be saved. #canpoli #Montréal 3/7

With the #abortion bills in the US effectively banning abortion in all circumstances, it is time we remember Henry #Morgentaler, a Canadian physician who challenged the #criminalization of abortion in Canada and went to prison for it.

Dr. Morgentaler was born in Poland in 1923. He was imprisoned in Nazi concentration camps during World War II. After the war, he immigrated to Canada to study and practice medicine. 2/25
From the beginning he had an interest in reproductive health, becoming one of the first physicians to perform vasectomies, place intrauterine devices (IUD, a form of birth control), and provide birth control pills to unmarried women. 3/25
