A Christian advert which suggested the cervical cancer vaccine would make teenagers sterile has been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority.
Christian Voice believes the HPV vaccine will increase teen sex and cause a surge in sexually-transmitted infections that cause infertility.
It placed an advert in New Statesman magazine which claimed: ‘Now we have the disaster of teenage infertility. Every Government initiative, including the HPV vaccine, will increase it, but as all the targets revolve around pregnancy, no-one in power knows how many young people they are making sterile and nobody cares.’
The advertising watchdog began an investigation after one complaint.
It found the advert breached codes on truthfulness, substantiation and principles.
