Act now to get government to block advertising by commercial abortion centres
1 February 2012
The two bodies which draft the advertising code of practice have made changes to allow "commercial post-conception advice services" - in reality, abortion clinics which earn income from performing abortions - to advertise on television and radio, in print and elsewhere.
Anthony Ozimic, SPUC's communications manager, said that the advertising industry's "supposed 'watchdog' is acting as the abortion industry's poodle." [SPUC, 21 January]
The change will come into effect on 30 April. The government should use its powers to stop such advertising - SPUC's question-and-answer briefing will give you the information you need to help make this happen.
