Tory bigot is threat to rights

Issue No. 2251

Tory Nadine Dorries wants 13 to 16-year old girls to receive abstinence-based sex education in schools.

MPs backed her ten minute rule motion in parliament last week. The bill will receive a second reading in January.

Dorries wants to cut women’s abortion rights.

Her bill is an attack on sexual freedom. It is a warning of how some in government think we should live our lives.
