Abortion providers[edit]

I noticed that there was a controversy in the pro-life/pro-choice debate about the recognition of abortion providers as human rights defenders. Perhaps this could be mentioned if a sufficent context were provided. [1] ADM (talk) 04:00, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Defender vs Activist[edit]

Human rights activist redirects here. Is there any difference between the two words and if so what is it? In general when a person is described as a human rights activists, would it be a inaccurate to add him/her as human rights defender? Mohamed CJ (talk) 15:49, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

I think that the expression "human rights activist" may popular under influence of the activism, that seeks social change or lobbying. However "human rights denfender" is more proper for this Article because they are all persons or origanizations "to promote and protect peacefully human rights universally recognized", according to UN Declaration on Human Rights Defenders described in this page. Therefore, the expression "human rights defender" is more proper than "human rights activist" because thay defend rights rathar than to change. United Nations Special Rapporteur also uses "human rights defenders" (see also [2])--LilyKitty (talk) 11:08, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
I agree. Human rights defender is the proper term, and should be the name of this article (Human rights defender or Human rights defenders). JohanahoJ (talk) 08:23, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
