Editors’ note: This article highlights the shared obstacles to accessing two stigmatized public health tools—emergency contraception and clean syringes—particularly when they are distributed through private, for-profit channels, like pharmacies. It calls for advocates to promote pharmacy distribution, while promoting free community healthcare and opposing federal policies which block access. It makes an argument for increased cooperation between the reproductive justice, harm reduction and AIDS movements.
