Anti-pregnancy poster from 1970

FLASHBACK to MArch 1970: The pregnant man poster was issued by the Health Education Council. Such posters were distributed in their thousands to persuade men to seek advice on contraception. Dr Bill Jones, Director General of the Health Education Council said: “We want to make any ignorant or unthinking man stop and consider the suffering and problems he can cause through an unplanned pregnancy.”
