The BBC has drawn criticism from pro-life groups over plans to broadcast a live radio program from an abortion clinic.
“News that a publicly funded radio station – BBC Radio 5 – is going to record inside an abortion clinic is being seen by many of us as biased support for the abortion lobby,” said Josephine Quintavalle of the ProLife Alliance.
Quintavalle called the move “contrary to the neutrality that is obligatory under the BBC charter,” in comments to CNA April 27.
The two-hour live program will take place next month at a location yet to be disclosed. The BBC says it will feature interviews with mothers who are having their babies aborted as well as with clinic staff.
