The Tory MP for Cirencester is trying to introduce a Private Members Bill that will outlaw abortion unless the health of the mother is at serious risk, or in the case of rape.

That man has just joined my list of 'People Who REALLY Piss Me Off'. He's on equal footing with Sue Axon (the woman who tried to make it illegal for a girl to have an abortion without her parents knowledge)

Why does this piss me off?

Because people make mistakes.

Because no birth control is 100%.

Because maybe, one day, I'll be the woman who got food poisoning which made her throw up her Pill, and whose sexual partner's condom split.

Because I want to have a choice about when to have children. I don't want a series of unfortunate events to take that choice away from me.

Actually, I want children. In the dim and distant future. When I'm thirty or so. I don't want to be saddled with a kid at nineteen. I don't want any of my friends to end up pregnant and unable to do anything about it.

I want everyone to have a choice.
