So are to be the rules that allegedly exist about promoting condoms and abortions on television. Such advertisement – for so it is, of commercial products or services – will now be “permitted” before the “watershed”, which has not existed for donkey’s years.
If you can find a programme of any kind which is not already an advertisement for condoms and abortion, then you are doing very well indeed.
Still, there will apparently be none such during programmes aimed at the under-10s. Isn’t that a mercy? Condoms and abortions from 10 up, though. Of course.
Condoms are practically thrown even at very young children. They have been for far, far longer than anyone now at school has been alive. Yet the rates of teenage pregnancy, of abortion and of venereal disease continues to rise inexorably. If something does not work, then we should stop doing it.
Meanwhile, will the abortionists be advertising in the Northern Cross? Mates’ rates? We shall see...
