On Josie Cunningham and abortion

I am pro-choice. I believe that every woman knows what is best for herself at the moment she makes the decision to have an abortion or continue a pregnancy whilst living within a capitalist-patriarchy.

I support Josie Cunningham.

With no ifs, ands or buts.

I just support Josie Cunningham.

  1. Hurrah. So do I. If her conscience dictates , then so be it. I just doubt her avowed, and well publicised , stated reasons may not fall within the parameters of the 1967 Act….. Which is why I’d prefer that women were never required to give a reason. We’re not required to when procuring contraception, so it seems counter to logic to require one for abortion.
    I don’t care why a woman doesn’t want to be pregnant, she shouldn’t have to justify herself to anyone.

    1. I find the discourse around women having the right to “choose” in the UK deeply problematic. If women need 2 doctors to sign off on their abortion, then we don’t have the right to make a choice about our own bodies. No woman should have to justify her reproductive choices. Ever.

  2. Me too, her abortion is legal and if she doesn’t want a child she shouldn’t be forced to have a child. I am disappointed that lots of the hate comes from women, I think these women really need to think about the poison they are sprouting about another woman.I believe this story has made people talk about a difficult subject so maybe she’s an accidental feminist, strange.

  3. I completely agree. I don’t think anyone should have to justify why they want an abortion or feel ashamed for wanting to have one. This outcry is totally woman-hating and it’s heinous

  4. when UK law was amended in the 1920’s, many women were astonished to find it was a criminal offence. The whole thing is ridiculous; women always need to terminate unwanted pregnancies. We all have good reasons.
