Outcry over Marie Stopes TV ad for abortion advice


An advert offering abortion advice is being shown on British television for the first time on Monday.

It will be screened on Channel 4 and will direct women to the sexual health care organisation, Marie Stopes.

The Roman Catholic Church has warned the advert could turn abortion into a consumer service.
