(satire – barely)
Tory minister for women Maria Miller has backed a reduction of the abortion limit from 24 weeks to 20 weeks saying it is imperative that more women are allowed to have unwanted babies.
Ms. Miller pledged to ensure the law reflected the way advances in medical technology now mean more women are happily able to have babies which they don’t want and can’t afford to keep.
The Conservative minister for women also said she was ‘driven by a very practical impact that late term abortion has on women’ in preventing them from exercising their right as a woman to be able to give birth to as many unwanted babies as they don’t want.
Her remarks were welcomed by fellow Tory Nadine Dorries, who tweeted on Tuesday night:
Maria Miller understands the importance of recognising some women are traumatised by not being able to have lots and lots of unwanted babies. It’s real feminism to allow women to have the choice to be saddled with babies which they can’t afford, don’t want and won’t be able to feed.
