Minority Report
Posted Wednesday, 31 October 2007 at 00:08

I am posting my statement to the press, and a copy of my minority report presented to the Science and Technology Select  Committee, which has been issued to the press at one minute past midnight on this blog.
I have not been able to say anything up until this time as I am not allowed to comment until the Select Committee has released the Chairman's report to the press.
The Committee was hi-jacked by those who have powerful financial vested interests in the abortion industry.
The statement and minority report says it all.
A while ago I wrote a blog entitled 'Behind the Scenes at the BMA' - tomorrows will be entitled behind the scenes at the RCOG.
The RCOG  'Abortion Guideline Committee', paid for by the government, informs government thinking, influences policy making and provides the guidelines within which the abortion industry operates. That Committee is almost entirely made up of individuals and organisations who are financially dependant upon a thriving abortion industry.
The press statement says the rest. Click here to read my statement and minority report.
I could never have put my name to the majority report which has been published. I regard the report as a veiled attack upon women and women's rights, but even worse, as a direct attack on unborn infants. I say this as someone who accepts abortion as a fact of life, who is not anti-abortion, but who is appalled at the way women are being manipulated in the name of a so called fictitious campaign of pro-choice. What is more, I know I have the support of public opinion behind me.
My day will start today with the 7.30am slot on the Today programme.

It seems that at both ends of the spectrum of life we are crapped on.

And as the cost of living increases, the cost of life just got cheaper.Money talks to silence babies cries,shame on those with vested interests.You may be in the minority as regards this committee but I believe you have the support of the public majority. Thankyou for being a caring, decent human being.

Too often, vested interests are allowed to mislead whilst those charged with ensuring a balanced debate stand idly by. This is a classic example - but particularly shameful because of the sensitive and important subject involved. It would not have come to light without your minority report. I hope the press and other MPs are paying attention. - Thank you Nadine. I wish more MPs would stand up for openness and transparency and what is right.

Good for you. You're doing an amazing job on this issue, and have done throughout the committee and before. You come across as both reasonable and principled, which can be a difficult task on such an emotive issue. My prayers are with you 100%

Clearly you have done what you believe to be right and should be admied for doing so. You mention the 'Abortion Industry'. I'm interested in what you think this comprises and how you think it works. Any further comment on this?

You came across extremely well on the Today programme Nadine. Well done for taking a principled stand.

Whatever side of the argument one is on, no vital natinal decision should be made on the basis of vested interests presenting their selfish interest as the national interest. I hope the Cons Party in office will be much tighter on this.

Good for you Nadine. We're run by "vested interests" everywhere

Nadine - would you say you were wholly anti-abortion? I'm not quite clear exactly what your stance is. Apologies if you have addressed this elsewhere.

Well done. How disappointing neither the BBC or ITV carried this on their early evening news bulletins. However good to see it made a 2 page spread in today's Daily Mail.
