Marie Stopes launches first UK TV ads for abortion services
Controversial campaign aims to 'empower women to reach confident, informed decisions about their sexual health'
The TV ad shown on Channel 4 at 10.10pm tonight, features a number of women from different walks of life who are "late". A voiceover says that being late for a period could mean pregnancy.
"If you're pregnant and not sure what to do Marie Stopes International can help," runs the voiceover. The ad finishes with the strapline "Are you late?"
The controversial campaign, which anti-abortion campaign group Life has said is "grotesque", will not be aired by Channel 4 in Northern Ireland because abortion is still illegal in the province.
