TV abortion ad statement given cautious welcome by leading pro life group SPUC

TV abortion ad statement given cautious welcome by leading pro-life group SPUC London, 1st March 2010 - Reports that Britain's broadcast regulator BCAP (Broadcast Committee of Advertising Practice) has shelved proposals for advertising by abortion agencies has been given a cautious welcome by the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), Britain's largest and oldest pro-life group.

John Smeaton, SPUC director, said: "BCAP's statement suggests there was overwhelming opposition to TV abortion advertising in response to their consultation. However, a word of caution: We hope that the statement is not conditioned by the impending general election and the desire to conceal a decision in favour of abortion advertising on TV for which the government would be blamed - especially in view of David Cameron's speech last July when he said: 'Even when a power is delegated to a quango, the minister remains responsible.'"
