The British Government is so concerned about the teenage pregnancy soar in the country  that they’ve decided to change their politics and let abortion clinics advertise on TV and radio, as well as allow condom manufacturers to broadcast ads at any time of the day or night according to TheDailyMail.co.uk.

Two points to consider…

“The problem is that the Government strategy on teenage pregnancy, based on condoms, the morning-after pill and abortion, has failed. Allowing the advertising of abortion services is not dealing with the real problem. This is the approach of having the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff to deal with the casualties,â€� Dr Peter Saunders, of the Christian Medical Fellowship, said. “The whole approach from Government and officialdom creates an atmosphere where it is seen as acceptable for teenagers to indulge in recreational sex without regard to the very serious consequences in terms of physical and emotional health.â€�

“It is a step forward for sexual health services to be able to advertise and clearly state what they do. It can be very confusing for a woman if she doesn’t know which organisation will refer her for an abortion,â€� proponents of the provision say.

Personally, I’m all for having more information in order to make a better decision, yet this does spark some interesting  questions.  What will the “call-to-action” be in these ads?  Will they offer any specials?  Will the advertising rule apply to make the message sexy.  I literally can’t imagine it! 

So what do you think…can this be done and support both perspectives???
