Anti-abortion protest outside Tynwald

Placard images cause upset online

An anti-abortion protest outside Tynwald this morning has triggered some upset on social media.

It was organised by the Abort 67 campaign, part of the Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform UK Group.

Placards used had graphic pictures of aborted foetuses.

The organisation is on the Island as part of an "Awakening Tour" and a further protest is planed for Regent Street tomorrow lunchtime.

Andy Stephenson from Abort 67 defended the use of the images:-
