Laura Perrins: The hypocrisy of the nanny state pro-choicers


The pro-choice extremists have launched a campaign called We Trust Women to call for the decriminalisation of abortion up to birth. I have talked about how nasty this is before, but I will park those objections for now.

The campaign wants us to believe foeticide is A-ok, because women should have ‘total control over their own bodies.’ We should Trust Women, after all. So let’s run with this for now. In fact let’s have We Trust Everyone campaign. Everyone should have total control over their own bodies.

The pro-abortion advocates want to get the government out of women’s bodies. Goodie. So I want nanny gone as well.

This means, by logical extension, no sugar tax. If I or fat Freddy and Larry lard-arse want to drink 10 bottles of Irn-Bru a day with a Big Mac then they can. And I don’t want any more nagging from the State about what a bad idea this is.

Nor, might I add, do I want to be told I can’t get hopelessly drunk – you should trust me, don’t you know. Cease encouraging me to go ‘dry for a month’ as it will boost my health, thanks very much.

Likewise we should have ordinary packaging on tobacco. I want to see what carcinogenic toxins I am putting into my body, because as a women you trust me to make the right choice for my own body, every time. And if by God if I can abort a 7-month-old foetus then I can smoke twenty a day.

Quit telling me to get off the bus a stop early and walk, or to walk up the stairs or to eat 5 pieces of fruit a day. It is my body and my choice!

And don’t bother telling me the health stuff is different from the abortion stuff because all the fatties, alcoholics and lung cancer cases cost the NHS billions a year, so therefore it is right for the State to intervene.

Do you know what else costs the NHS at least £25 million a year? Doing abortions. Women demand abortions because it is ‘their body and their choice,’ but funnily enough it is often not their wallet.

That is the pro-choice extremists for you – high on jargon, low on logic.
