Britain May Allow Abortion Ads on Television, Radio

The British government has given the nod for abortionists to hawk their services on the “telly.” As reported by the London Telegraph, “Private clinics which carry out abortions will be allowed to advertise on television and radio for the first time, under new rules.” The Telegraph reported that with recently approved recommendations, “drawn up by the Broadcast Committee of Advertising Practice, which regulates TV and radio commercials, dozens of independent hospitals carrying out abortions will be able to advertise their services to consumers.”

Under previous rules, only not-for-profit abortion clinics could air advertisements, which boiled down to a single organization, Marie Stopes International. That “charity” aired just one advertisement last year, which resulted in more than 4,500 complaints from UK citizens.
