On Saturday, Dorries posted as follows:
Further information regarding the reasons why we need informed consent.
We can no longer continue to harm women by witholding the facts. They have a right to know and a right to choose.
Women do have the right to know but that right extends to both sides of the debate.
The paper to which Dorries links is a critical response to an earlier article, the author [of the critical response] of which is a pro-life advocate. Dorries doesn’t mention this.
In her speech in the Commons, Dorries says, “it is vital for women to receive information that is absolutely accurate”. It is disappointing that Dorries doesn’t follow her own advice but gives only the pro-life view.
By the way I haven’t received a reply to my email to Dorries about errors in her speech to the Commons.
The original paper by Brenda Major - she may be pro-choice: I don’t know - can be read here.
The critical paper by Priscilla Coleman – she is pro-life – can be read here.
Update @ 20 Nov 2010 16.35: The link to Priscilla Coleman now works. Thanks E.
