"A native of Chile, I graduated from the University of Chile and became a Full Professor in Obstetrics there in 1970. In 1973, I had to leave Chile after the military coup and became an advisor to the Mother and Child Health and Family Planning program in the Dominican Republic. In 1976, I moved to Brazil, where I resumed teaching at the School of Medical Sciences in São Paulo.
I was deeply touched by the tragedies of botched abortions I witnessed as a medical student in Chile. Since then I have dedicated much of my life to reducing stigma surrounding abortion.
