SAO PAULO (AP) – Brazil’s health ministry has removed a web page proclaiming “I am happy being a prostitute.”

The message was aimed at reducing the AIDS-related stigma suffered by prostitutes, but it was dropped from the ministry’s website Tuesday.

Health Minister Alexandre Padilha told reporters: “I don’t think this is a message the ministry should be sending. Our campaigns orient people how to avoid sexual transmitted diseases.”
