Beyond the Limit – 3
Here’s another Labour MP who might want to think carefully before they vote on the Abortion amendment.
Jacqui Smith (Labour). Redditch. Majority: 2716.
Jacqui Smith has abstained during many abortion votes, however, she has taken funding from Emily’s list on the basis that she supports pro-abortion values.
As I’ve said before, abstention is fine if she feels that by voting for her pro-abortion beliefs she would be mis-representing her constituents. One to watch.
Remember, to get onto Emily’s List you have to agree to take a pro-abortion stance. In return for this you get money to help your campaign. That means that the current Home Secretary has been paid to vote a particular way on abortion.
