LaTrobe Abortion Promo

La Trobe University in Melbourne featured a full page advert for an abortion clinic, the Fertility Control Clinic in East Melbourne inside the front cover of its student diary, according to the March journal from Saltshakers. The advert does not mention the word “abortion” or even the expression “termination of pregnancy. The diary also contains info about the Rainbow Room – room for ‘gay, lesbian and bisexual students.”

Action: Saltshakers asks students at university to talk to the university about what they are promoting and the issues that you confront.
