BBC repeats the screening of a drama depicting pro life campaigners as murderous terrorists.

BBC repeats the screening of a drama depicting pro life campaigners as murderous terrorists on February 10th. Several details have a striking resemblance to real pro-life campaigners. The actress playing one of the pro-life kidnappers bears a striking resemblance to real pro-life campaigner, Josephine Quintavalle, who battled with the BBC in 1997 over the broadcaster’s decision to censor a party political broadcast by the Pro-Life Alliance. We thank The Christian Institute for reporting on this case.
