Maria Caulfield: Diana Johnson's bill is 'a charter for unsafe abortions'

Maria Caulfield MP, speaking in the House of Commons, opposes Diana Johnson's bill to decriminalise abortion up to 24 weeks.

Mrs Caulfield MP, says she wants to see legislation that protects "not only the rights of women but the rights of the unborn child".

"A 21st century approach to this area must be based on a fuller and richer understanding of human dignity and equality, which doesn't treat a woman as a victim of her own body, which doesn't treat children as commodities, and which doesn't treat marginalised people such as young girls or children with Down's syndrome as burdens or inconveniences."
