Letter sent to new MP.

June 3, 2010

I emailed my MP through www.theyworkforyou.com.

I sent this email-

Dear Craig Whittaker,

Congratulations on your success in the election.

I read David Cameron’s  committment to cutting the upper time limit for
abortion, two days after the general election
was called. I would like to know what your position is on this.

If you do support such a cut, I would like to know what evidence you
base this support on. Specifically, I would like to know which medical
evidence you have, its legal basis, its scientific basis and which
medical bodies support this evidence.

If you support this cut, and your objection is a moral one, I would
like to know what evidence you have to show that women are not
ethically competent to make this decision, and the reasons you believe
that womens reproductive health services should be restricted on the
basis of it.

Yours sincerely,

Lisa Ansell

We don’t know what the position  on abortion are, of many of the MPs who have recently taken their seats . But we can ask. Internet is brilliant.



  1. followed your lead and asked my own MP some similar questions.

    pushing this shit around facebook now. Just imagine, we might soon live in a world where everybody actually knows who their MP is.
