What are a woman's choices?
Generally, I find the copy and phrases used on the websites of organisations offering abortion treatment to be euphemistic, bland and comforting and aiming the woman in one direction only - the final solution a la Adolf Hitler.
They are, of course, intended for that purpose.
So when a website such as that belonging to the Marie Stopes organisation lists options, one might be lulled into thinking that they are going to give women seeking counselling, some even handed advice.
Perhaps they genuinely are offering alternatives to abortion; keeping the baby (sorry, foetus).
But, it is, I'm afraid all show and no substance; read this extract from their booklet on Abortion....
OK, so points one and two look interesting......presumably, Marie Stopes advisors will offer referral to support organisations such as adoption societies or welfare support groups....yes?
Maybe, even, referral to SPUC or 40 Days for Life....yes?
No. No on both counts.
The literature just goes on to speak about abortion options, how easy it is, how so very simple to kill a life.
No mention of other real options; it's all a facade designed to lead women down the very short path to death in the womb.
And no reference is made to the legal requirements for abortion procedures.
Surely, that means that, if counselling is given that leads directly to an abortion in breach of British law, the organisation and its 'nurses' are guilty of breaking the law?
That then means that David Cameron's mob of Tories and high principled Lib Dems will be out to ensure that all breaches of the country's laws are implemented and the guilty brought to justice.
Ha! Ha, ha, ha. Time to stuff handkerchief in mouth and roll on carpet drumming floor with clenched fists.
