IRELAND – Anti-abortion group tries to use same photos as Irish Family Planning Association

The Irish Family Planning Association (IFPA) has had to change the stock photos of women it uses in its promotional materials after learning that an anti-abortion group that runs a so-called crisis pregnancy service was using the same pictures to promote anti-abortion messages. For example, they used one photo to advertise “post-abortion” care, which said: “Some women may experience feelings of sadness, grief, anger and regret following an abortion.” The IFPA are concerned that pregnant women might mix up the two organisations.
