UK's first abortion services ad created by Marie Stopes

An advertisement for abortion services is to be screened for the first time on UK television next week.

The campaign for unplanned pregnancy and abortion advice at Marie Stopes clinics will raise awareness of sexual health, the organisation said.

The screenings on Channel 4 will start at 2210 BST on 24 May and run until the end of June.

Anti-abortion groups said the move trivialised the issue and a legal appeal was being considered.

This is what it’s like in the UK; Street preachers being arrested, abortion advertisements on television; if you are an Evangelical (or any other Christian) who declines to offer marriage counseling to gay people who pretend to be married, then you can get lose your job.

Makes me miss Mary Whitehouse all the more, Habesha.
