On 23 September 2021 the Daily Record published an article about Scottish Government policy in relation to vigils and the start of a new vigil by the 40 Days for Life group. The story was illustrated with this picture:
The picture features a group of men and women holding signs with the words: “Abortion? Not in our name.” In the background is a very large building with georgian windows and classical style stone columns. The picture is credited to Getty Images which is British-American visual media company and a supplier of stock images.
The Daily Record image does not provide any context but captions the picture with the text: “Campaigners say anti-choice protests should be kept away from healthcare entrances”
The Daily Record’s picture appears to be the same Getty image as that used by the BBC on 21 October 2019:
The BBC article: “Abortion recall: Another bizarre day in recent Stormont history” provides context for the picture which shows a group opposing proposed changes to the abortion law in Northern Ireland. The BBC locate the picture at Stormont, the home of the Northern Ireland Assembly, near Belfast
The Daily Record article relates to 2021 prayer vigils at Scottish hospitals or clinics where abortion is performed. The Daily Record picture shows a 2019 political event at a political location in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The red / white posters displayed relate to a Northern Irish campaign which have not been used at any vigil in Scotland
The Daily Record picture is therefore rated as MISLEADING
