UK abortionists offend with Christmas ‘sex’ ad pushing abortifacient morning after pill
LONDON, UK, December 6, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), one of the largest abortion providers in the UK, is once again using sexually provocative advertising to attract clients for their abortion ‘services,’ but this time with a festive twist.
A British Pregnancy Advisory Service poster ad features the word SEX in Christmas lights, with the caption, “Getting ‘turned on’ this Christmas?” The ad continues: “He’s hot, he lights you up inside, you can’t switch it off and before you know it, the sparks are flying….”
“The thing is, we see more women with an unplanned pregnancy in January than any other time of year,” the ad says, concluding by offering free morning after pills throughout December.
While the morning after pill can act as a contraceptive by prevention fertilization, it can also cause an abortion by preventing a newly conceived life from implanting in its mother’s womb.
While claiming to offer free services, BPAS is paid by UK tax dollars through the National Health Service on a per client basis. A recent report indicates that the NHS hands over nearly $100 million for abortions annually.
The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children has condemned the Christmas promotion, saying, “BPAS is a money-grabbing organisation which has a vested interest in increasing the irresponsible sexual activity which often leads to abortion.”
Paul Tully, SPUC general secretary, noted that BPAS wants a greater share of the multi-million pound government contracts in state-funded abortion and birth control. “BPAS is advertising the scheme as free, when in fact it will be taxpayers who foot the bill via the government’s business deal with BPAS,” he said.
“Christmas is about the gift of life, yet BPAS are offering instead the gift of death,” said the SPUC spokesman. “According to the manufacturers, morning-after pills can kill newly-conceived human embryos by making the womb’s lining hostile. It is a sick idea, and an appalling reflection on society, that an abortion-inducing drug can be supplied over the phone as a Christmas promotion.”
In a similar campaign in 2008, BPAS featured a semi-pornographic photo of a woman in a sexual pose with a man dressed as Santa Claus.
