Fictional Program Does not Reflect any Realities of British Pro-Lifers   ENGLAND, May 15, 2002 ( – The BBC has launched a new spy-thriller series called Spooks. As reported in the Daily Telegraph, the villains in the first episode were not terrorists like Al-Qa’eda or the IRA, but the pro-life movement.

The name of the abortionist-killing group is Unborn Alliance, “an amalgam of two real organisations: the Society for the Protection of the Unborn Child (Spuc), which campaigns against abortion, and the ProLife Alliance, which put up scores of candidates at the last general election,” reported the British paper.  “Spooks made no attempt to offer a balanced view of the complex issues raised by abortion. In one scene, an officer lures one of the British pro-lifers into a hospital, to be confronted with the dying daughter of the murdered abortionist. Upset but unrepentant, she gives away a vital clue. The subliminal message here is that pro-lifers do not really care about children, only about foetuses.” The show also demonized the Catholic church.  See: Why does the abortion debate terrify the BBC?;$0UANQ2YAAA13BQFIQMGSFGGAVCBQWIV0?xml=/opinion/2002/05/15/do1501.xml&sSheet=/portal/2002/05/15/por_right.html (copy and paste entire link into browser address line)
