At every general election, volunteers from the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children seek to interview candidates about their voting intentions on pro-life issues and inform voters about their candidates’ views. A few minutes ago, on returning home after an appointment with a constituent, I found the following leaflet among the mail in my hall:
I am glad to reaffirm my commitment to the pro-life cause.
You can also see my voting intentions on pro-life issues at Where Do They Stand. (Green indicates a pro-life response. At the time of writing none of the other candidates for Preston have offered responses; you can ask them via the find a candidate page.)
I have also (today, coincidentally) replied to an enquiry from We’re All Equal. They asked
Would you vote in support of a Bill, similar to Lord Shinkwin’s Abortion (Disability Equality) Bill, that would seek to remove section 1(1)(d) from the 1967 Abortion Act?
If elected I would vote in support of a bill similar to Lord Shinkwin’s Abortion (Disability Equality) Bill. I would make it a high priority. Abortion is a terrible thing, and the eugenic discrimination against disabled children enshrined in the 1967 Abortion Act is a doubly damning indictment of our society’s failure to protect the weakest among us. Lord Shinkwin’s campaign to protect disabled children in the womb is inspiring and I support it wholeheartedly.
