FREE PORN IN FERTILITY CLINICS SLAMMED BY THINK TANK
Hosptial bosses were last night slammed for supplying porn in fertility clinics.
Think tank 2020health.org said providing DVDs and magazines to help men produce sperm samples promoted “adultery of the mind”. Some health trusts spend £100 a year on the material.
Julia Manning, the report’s author, said: “Pornography deprives women of full human status and reduces them to sex objects.”
So how does the Star decide to illustrate a story about a report that criticises porn for its 'debasing treatment of women' and for 'reducing women to sex objects'?
The bit that I've blacked out shows six women in various stages of undress in various poses.
The Star has taken the view that this story is the perfect time to advertise porn. And not just any porn but Television X - owned, like the Daily Star, by Richard Desmond.
(Other cross-promotion from the Star today: two mentions of Matthew Wright celebrating ten years at the Desmond-owned Channel Five)
