Maria Caulfield and the right to abortion

So Maria Caulfield wants to restrict the right of a woman to a legal abortion by shortening the 24 week time limit. She says she wants ‘a debate’ on this which is the cowards way of not saying that she’s in fact anti-choice and another intolerant pro-lifer.

I can’t believe that Lewes voted this vile woman in. Shame on everyone who ticked that box on Election Day.

It just shows how easy it is to fool the Lewes electorate. Twice.
Without a credible opponent I wouldn't rule out her getting a hat trick either.

Who would put themselves forward to be an MP to serve a group of people where some of them will always disagree in the most vitriolic way possible. I certainly wouldn't. Having a debate is not cowardly, it's giving more thought and energy to a particularly difficult subject. If you have an MP they need your support and a more positive form of feedback no matter how much you disagree with them. If we want an MP that we rate more highly, then we need to behave in a way that deserves one. Whether or not you agree with her views she is doing what she can.

I certainly didn't vote for her and don't agree with her on this issue but she's entitled to her opinion like anyone else.

Yes. Very badly too.

I completely agree with women having a choice, but I also think a 20 week time limit be somewhat appropriate, so it's not necessarily anti-choice (but not sure if Maria agrees of if she wants to keep shortening the time limit).

It gets pretty stupid when a group of elected MPs, who achieved their positions of power merely by propagandizing the electorate and who, as a group, are notoriously corrupt, are making life-changing decisions regarding highly scientific medical interventions on behalf of millions of women. Very few MPs have formal medical training (Lewes's own MP being an exception). And too few MPs are women anyway.

I like the fact it's safe enough to leave windows open and shops don't need to put grills up at night.
