Buses in Australia have been carrying anti-abortion advertisements linked to a pro-life movement.

The images, which appeared on public transport in Newcastle, New South Wales, show two hands making a heart shape across a pregnant stomach.

Written alongside the picture is the words: A heart beats at four weeks.

The advert was provided by Emilys Voice, a pro-life organisation that aims to deter women from abortion.

Keolis Downer, the company that runs Newcastles bus system, have since taken the images down after the New South Wales Minister for Transport said he was appalled by them.

A spokesperson for the firm said: A third party manages advertising on Newcastle Transport buses. Keolis Downer acted immediately and the advertisement has now been removed.

Advertising must comply with Transport for NSW content standards and guidelines. An investigation into this matter is now underway.
