MPs debating abortion amendments

Labour's Chris McCafferty said limiting when a woman can have an abortion is "cynical, cruel, ill-informed and inhumane". Well said Chris.

Labour's Claire Curtis-Thomas said she was not opposed to abortion, believing that women have the right to choose. "I just hope they don't choose to have an abortion," she said, adding that she would be happier with a 12-week limit. Lets hope Labour party members don't choose her for selection to stand for Labour in the next General Election.

She went on to say "Our job is to protect the vulnerable. For me they have the right to life." The vulnerable are the women who need and choose to have an abortion. They too have a right to life.

Julie Morgan was just speaking now and gave a great speech. The vote will take place in a few minutes.
