Giant graphic abortion display in Westminster marks 50th Abortion Anniversary

Printer-friendly version

Anti-abortion group, Abort67, will today use a new mobile display unit to expose the consequences of Parliament's decision 50 years ago to pass the Abortion Act, since which over 8 million children have been aborted.

The mobile display, which will be driven past the Palace of Westminster, will be accompanied by a large static display on Parliament Square, and volunteers talking to members of the public.

Today's combined display will be the biggest abortion exposure ever seen in the UK, the
group says.


'Mobile graphic abortion display'

Abort67 has been using large banners with photographs of aborted fetuses in its public education project for some time, but the addition of a mobile unit represents a powerful new element that will allow Abort67 to expose much wider audiences to the truth about abortion, the group says.

Existing efforts are already changing public opinion about abortion but the use of the mobile display will allow Abort67 to quickly scale up its impact, the group adds.

Abort67 is using tired and tested principles from the history of social reform to expose the hidden injustice of abortion and bring about a revolution in social attitudes the group explains.


'Left unchallenged for too long'

Ruth Rawlins, Abort67 spokesperson, comments:

“Abortion advocates have been left unchallenged for too long, hiding the reality of abortion and its tragic effects on both the pre-born child and the mother.

"They are becoming increasingly aware of anti-abortion activity and have been frantically trying to shut down the voice of all those who oppose them. The call for buffer zones is just one example.

"But, they cannot shut down an image showing the outcome of their ‘service’ that savagely kills children in the womb. People can have opinions, but photographs cannot lie.”


'Opposition'

As well as changing minds, Abort67 is prepared to encounter opposition and possibly counter-protests as it has done at previous large displays.

The organisers advise:

"If you do not wish to see the abortion images then please avoid Parliament Square, Whitehall and the surrounding area between 11:00 and 16:00 on Friday 27th October."
