Advertising Abortion...

I was contact a few weeks ago by an old school friend, who wanted to bring some recent news to my attention.  To our absolute disgust it has been announced, that as of April, profit making abortion clinics in the UK, can now freely advertise on television!  I know that in some countries this has been so for years, but this should still shock and upset all of us, because if it doesn't, something is surely wrong with us!

I have re-posted the following article from the Guardian.

Private clinics that charge for pregnancy services, including abortions, will be able to advertise on television and radio under new regulations.

Clinics offering a range of "post-conception advice services" (PCAS), including counselling and terminations, will be free to advertise in broadcast media because there is no justification to prevent it as long as they are not harmful, offensive or misleading, the Broadcast Committee of Advertising Practice (BCAP) said.

Not-for-profit pregnancy services are already allowed to advertise on television and radio and for-profit clinics can already advertise in all other media, including newspapers.

Under new rules clinics will have to make it clear in all advertising if they do not offer referral for termination.  This was because of strong public health grounds, BCAP said.

The new rules will take effect on 30 April.

A statement from BCAP said: "BCAP decided to remove the television rule, which effectively prevents commercial PCAS offering personal advice from advertising, and the radio rule which effectively prevents only PCAS with local authority or NHS approval from advertising.

"BCAP understood that the removal of these restrictions would allow legally available PCAS to advertise, while maintaining robust protection for general audiences through existing rules which prevent broadcast advertising from causing harm or offence."

It added: "We held a full public consultation in summer 2011 and invited the Department for Culture Media and Sport and the Department of Health to respond. We did not receive any response."

Matt Wilson, a spokesman for BCAP, said: "There is not going to be some sort of free-for-all saying 'come to us to get an abortion'. They are not there to promote abortion, they have to promote an array of services. It is about being responsible and commercial pro-life pregnancy services will now be able to advertise too."

All at BCAP are seriously deluded.  Why is this idea not abhorrent to everyone?  All this will achieve is to desensitise more people, to what abortion actually is.  Young girls will now, more than ever, think it is completely okay to abort ones own child. 

Imagine if the "advertisement" was to show what actually happened to the precious child during the abortion "service", how long would it take before people switched off, and realised that they were witnessing a murder?  One minute...two?  Or perhaps when the baby's brain had been vacuumed out, and his arms and legs had been torn off?  When will people see that this is not a "choice" to be "opted" for?

I think ALL people considering aborting their child, should be shown photographs of aborted children.  This, I believe would reduce abortion rates greatly.  You see, women just don't know what happens during an abortion.  Perhaps some don't wish to know, but it is my opinion that the monsters who carry out these "procedures" everyday, don't want people to know the truth!  If people were more aware of the horrors of abortion those "doctors" would be seriously out of pocket.  Expose their lies and save precious lives.

I have posted the following video to expose the lies of the "pro-choice" movement, and to offer the truth to those who wish to know it.  It tells how an abortion is performed on a 10-12 week baby.  It is upsetting because of the information we receive, but this video does not show graphic scenes of abortion.  Please take the time to watch it.

Now please consider giving your voice to those who 
cannot speak for themselves.  Help protect precious unborn lives; join your local or nation pro-life organisation.

Disgusting. Advertising murder, what's next? Thankfully we have none of this where I live. I get sick of the ads for erectile dysfunction drugs and more, but this would take me over the top. Praying for those in charge to have a change of heart for God.

Our Family Is His ~ I think ultimately, that people have been so brainwashed into thinking that abortion is ok, that news reports like this have almost no effect on them. What absolutely floored me about this story, was that seemingly NONE of the UK pro-life groups contested this decision. Why didn't they do anything? I looked at one group website in particular, and found it rather weak and anaemic looking. People need to speak out boldly and fight for the un-born who have no voice of their own. It saddens me deeply, that the majority of people do not seem to care.
