A Fair Debate....
Posted Wednesday, 23 January 2008 at 14:27

It is no secret that I was extremely unhappy with the Science and Technology Committee report into reducing the upper time limit at which abortion can take place.

 

Not least because the overwhelming majority of people called to give evidence were from the pro-abortion lobby, and, pro-abortion MPs on the Committee heavily influenced the outcome of the report.

 

A minority report was produced in which I highlighted my concerns; however, MPs who wish to facilitate easier access to abortion will use the main report to influence the opinion of other MPs during the debate.

 

In an attempt to highlight the other side of the story, I will be chairing a discussion on Monday night (28 January ) in the House of Commons.

 

On the panel will be Professor Sunny Anand, the world’s leading authority on foetal pain; Professor Stewart Campbell, the pioneer of 4D screening which now shows us exactly how a foetus behaves in the womb; and another speaker to be confirmed.

 

The meeting will take place on Monday night in Westminster Hall between 6-8pm.The Hall will take a maximum of 100 people and entry is strictly controlled by invitation only.

 

The purpose of the discussion is to give people like Professor Anand, whose research was disregarded by the Committee, a platform from which they can present the other side of the argument to MPs, the press, and the rest of society;  including the 72 per cent of the general public who agree that 24 weeks is too late.

 

The reason that I, and all MPs, are in this place should be to represent the will of the people.

 

When it comes to the issue of abortion and what takes place in Parliament, it is very easy to see whose will is being carried out. You look to see where the money is, follow it, and guess which doors you find yourself outside?
