Are You Late? British Abortion Clinic Ad

Marie Stopes International is Charity in the UK that gives advice and medical treatment for woman.  They are the British version of Planned Parenthood.  They ran a first of it's kind ad on British TV that aired yesterday and it is causing quite a stir.  The charity denies that this ad is geared towards offering women abortion, but since they perform about 65,000 per year, that is a little hard for pro-life advocates to believe.  The ad never uses the word abortion, but I personally think that the message is pretty clear.  Especially when you read these statistics:


Termination in numbers
1/3 of British women have had an abortion
195,296 officially recorded abortions in 2008 There were 198,499 in 2007
19-20 peak age for having an abortion
91% of abortions are NHS- funded. Just over half are in independent clinics such as Marie Stopes
24 weeks upper time limit for abortion
90% of abortions are carried out under 13 weeks

Talk about dehumanizing the baby. This is all described as fixing the problem of a late period. Sounds like national denial to me.

That is exactly the view point of the pro choice side. It is about fixing a problem, not about a baby. That is why they will fight mandatory ultrasounds tooth and nail.
