Educational awareness on the side of a van

On 11.11.22 AbortusInformatie lauched a new initiative, to educate the Dutch public on highways. On the side of a van a baby 7 weeks from conception is portrayed in an ultrasound image, alive in the womb, and what a surgical abortion might look like for the baby. “Relevant information helps form an opinion on the topic of abortion, so people can make an informed decision” says founder Salome van der Wende. The choice was made for this 7 week age due the plans of having the abortion pill available via family doctors. More information can be found on our Dutch website here

Boxes sent to Dutch government senate and house of representatives

In 2022 sent around 50 boxes addressed to 110 politicians in the Dutch government house of representatives, due to plans to change abortion laws for the first time in 40 years. The boxes included models of babies (6-7 wk, 11-12 wk and 18 wk from conception), along with information cards and images of baby development and abortion, so they would know what they were to vote about. Later also sent to the political parties in the Senate.  This was due to plans to omit the mandatory 5 day waiting period, along with making the abortion pill available via the family doctor, instead of only through abortion clinics and hospitals. In the future the embryo laws are planned to be expanded for experiments etc. on older embryo’s with beating hearts, and developing embryos with no brainstem or spinal cord so not viable, where minister Kuipers imagines changing the definition of ’embryo’ to differentiating between ‘intact’ and ‘not intact’ embryo’s that cannot reach full development of an embryo. More information on these boxes can be found on our Dutch website here.

Too ‘sensitive’ and too ‘shocking’ – major Dutch TV channel refuses advertisement showing 4 and 6 week* alive baby in the womb STER NPO1 2 and 3.

“The censoring by STER is the best evidence that Dutch pro-aborts feel threatened that medical scans of an alive baby in the womb would expose abortion for what it is”, says spokesperson Salome van der Wende. initially intended in 2021 to show a 30 second educational advertisement on STER NPO 1, 2 and 3. STER however responded saying: “Given the sensitive subject, this can be perceived as too shocking for viewers. Also, we do not want this from a legal and company perspective.”

Another channel is however showing the ads. (* from conception) More…

Billboard advertising by

In 2021 we held an advertising campaign for a number of weeks in 11 cities throughout the Netherlands, along roads, at busstops, and railway station. The image merely depicted a 6 week from conception baby in the womb, for educational purposes. Some billboards were defaced, and we were taken to court. The advertising commission, after the court hearings, dismissed all three the allegations. We were also discussed in various council meetings of cities who objected to our work, Some impressions can be found on our Dutch site here and our recent media page there. held a street awareness campaign outside the EO Evangelische Omroep media company offices in Hilversum, on their 50th anniversary. Reason? A few days prior on a Pauw TV roundtable program some prominent leaders had said they had been ‘too activist’ on ethical / moral issues in the past (Pauw 17.4.2017).

A man claiming to work for EO (who twice when asked refused to give his name):

(a) attempted to confiscate and walk away with’s courtesy sign, during our education display on the public walkway, that let’s people know there are images ahead;

(b) when we asked for it to be returned, he put our sign behind his back out of reach, and sat on it;

(c) then attempted to silence Ms. Van der Wende later by blocking her path as she walked, forcing her sign down to the ground, arms over the sign, and in an intimidating manner warned not to inform others of what had taken place. More…

We held an educational display to bring awareness to around 20.000 visitors of the 2017 EO Jongerendag youth day held in Arnhem Gelredome, many of whom passed us on either side on the way in.

A politician of the D66 party in Arnhem was furious, believing it to be EO youth displaying our signs, instead of us –

After one passerby complained, EO staff walked up. Responding that we had done the paperwork with the council beforehand, and this was the area they had allocated, they left to check. ‘Helaas stonden deze mensen niet op het terrein van het Gelredome en konden ze daardoor niet weggestuurd worden door medewerkers’.

Earlier years we have also had run-ins with the staff of the EO Jongerendagen, who don’t want us there. More…
