Attacking charity

Appalled to hear Nadine Dorries MP on the Today programme making an entirely erroneous and indeed libellous accusation against a charity providing abortion services. I'm glad the Today programme published a correction. She claimed,without bothering to check and without foundation, that the British Pregnancy Advisory Service only provides one hour counselling a week to people who come for an abortion. Untrue and a disgrace that she made that claim.

She should be ashamed of herself. A thoroughly reprehensible attack. I heartily recommend the recent Blog of the admirable Fab Elsworth on this subject.

It's time Frank Field disassociated himself from Dorries.
