R (ProLife Alliance) v BBC

R (ProLife Alliance) v. BBC[1] was a House of Lords case on the extent to which matters of good taste and decency are sufficient to justify the censorship of a party political broadcast.

The ProLife Alliance had submitted a video that showed the results of an abortion. The video was held to violate statutory regulations requiring public broadcasts to be decent. After extensive legal proceedings, the Court of Appeal ruled in favour of the ProLife Alliance. However, the decision was overturned by the House of Lords.
