Tories shun their colleague in opposition to Ganley style abortion laws

The campaign to toughen Britain's abortion laws was losing momentum as Tory MPs on Friday backed a rival amendment and questions emerged about links to Christian counselling services that might benefit from the proposed reform.

Legislation initially proposed by Nadine Dorries and Frank Field would strip abortion providers such as Marie Stopes of their counselling role and hand it over to "independent" organisations not linked to abortion clinics.

But Dorries confirmed to the Guardian that the organisations supporting her campaign include a "crisis pregnancy centre" (CPC) a type of advisory service often linked to religious anti-abortion activists.

Dorries is coming under pressure to reveal how her allies are funded. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/sep/02/anti-abortion-critics-nadine-dorries

Delighted the chickens are coming home to roost on this. Its too often these right wing nut jobs get a say in a womans life and the choices she has with her body, Hope the Torys come up with an alternative to these anti abortion fruit and nuts

Frankly, I don't see this one ever getting off the ground in the UK. Too many people have had abortions at this point anyway, there, and the levels of Christian belief are at about 5-10% (regular attendance). I lived there for over 5 years and saw very little impassioned debate on this, despite efforts of the far right to bring it up repeatedly

It also suits the NHS to be paying for fewer special needs, etc. They do abnormality scans at 18 weeks, giving you another 6 to seek a termination, should you need to.
