Marie Stopes abortion mill accepted millions of pounds from porn baron

Marie Stopes International (MSI) has received more than £7.5million from American sex-toy salesman Phil Harvey.

Harvey’s business, Adam & Eve, was established as a mailorder firm in 1971 and it has become one of America’s leading suppliers of erotica, with £60million of adult film and sex-toy sales last year. 

Adam & Eve gives away 25 per cent of its profits through Harvey’s charitable foundation, DKT International.

According to accounts, this includes at least £7.5million in cash and supplies to MSI since 1995. 

Harvey, 82, is a trustee of MSI, but the charity makes barely any mention of him on its website.

London-based MSI, which arranged about five million abortions last year and received £48million of British foreign aid funding, was recently reprimanded by the Charity Commission after chief executive Simon Cooke had his pay doubled to £434,000. 

Andrea Williams, chief executive of Christian Concern, said: ‘Serious questions need to be asked about why MSI, an organisation which says it is dedicated to empowering women, has received millions in funding from an industry that achieves the opposite.’
