Abortion to be advertised on TV

How appropriate that Britain’s first televised abortion advert will be broadcast during a game show hosted by Davina McCall which carries the strapline: “Do you want to be given a MILLION pounds live on TV?” How wonderfully dystopian, like something from a 1980s satire on jungle capitalism, such as Robocop or The Running Man.

and Peter Hitchens writes:

I say that Marie Stopes International (which receives about £25 million a year from the NHS, much of it for killing unborn babies under contract) should be allowed to advertise its repellent services on TV.

But on one condition. That each advertisement is followed by both of these: film of an actual abortion of a 24-week-old baby, and a brief documentary reminding viewers that Marie Stopes sent love poems to Adolf Hitler in August 1939, advocated compulsory sterilisation for the ‘unfit’, and cut her own son out of her will because he married a girl who wore glasses.

What sort of organisation would name itself after such a monstrous woman?
