Marie Stopes forced to end
'morning after' pill promotion
The abortion market is a lucrative business and new
products of death are continually appearing on the horizon. Needless
to say, the 'morning after' pill is as much a cause of death for the
human embryo it seeks to destroy as an abortion is for the unborn baby.
This is why we were horrified to learn last Christmas that Marie
Stopes International (MSI) were seeking to capitalise on the Millennium
celebrations by marketing the 'morning after' pill in a millennium party
A consumer, splashing out on this tasteless party pack, would receive
not only an abortifacient drug but a party balloon as well. This
highlights the levels to which MSI are prepared to go in order to market
their products of death. 'Money talks'! Perhaps this explains why Marie
Stopes are so unconcerned about the health of women, and have total
disregard for those they destroy in pursuit of profit.
It is up to those of us who care about life to do all we can to protect
it. So once this cynical marketing ploy had been uncovered, Student
LifeNet, (with valuable help from a pro-life law student), learning that
promotion of a prescription only medication in this cavalier way was
actually a criminal offence, immediately contacted the Medicines Control
Agency and reported the scam. They, too, were astounded that Marie
Stopes were acting so irresponsibly. The Medicines Act (1968),
that MSI had breached, is there to protect the public from organisations
and pharmaceutical companies carelessly promoting the use of any
dangerous medication, which clearly covers prescription only medication.
As a result of our action, Marie Stopes were forced to end their
campaign and clear their site of all references to it.
A victory for pro-life persistance death and killing should not be
marketable products, and we should do everything in our power to ensure
that promotion of the morning after pill is always stopped, so take the
initiative and take action.
The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) are also under
investigation for potential breaches of the Medicines Act. The
Advertising Standards Agency has received reports that both Marie Stopes
International and BPAS are misleading women by promoting the 'morning
after' pill under the guise of contraception.
