Choosing Choice: Abortion

Choice - it's the very basis of our humanity... but in some places we are being denied that right to choice. In countries where abortion is illegal thousands of women every year are denied their human rights and forced into motherhood... lack of access to abortions doesn't save lives, it ruins them.

How I Turned My Unhappy Past Into a Happy One

I was brought up in an agnostic house- my parents were not particularly interested in religion and made it plain to us three children that we could do whatever we wanted. In a sense I am grateful to my parents who both came from relatively liberal families and were not that ingrained with God and the rest.

If Trees Could Give Off Wi-Fi Signals

We are connected to this world in more ways than imaginable, in the ground and in the air; everything is made up of the basic building blocks of life, carbon, oxygen and nitrogen. Trees are one of these givers of life, and how humans and trees correspond to give each other life is one of the most fundamental, yet essential aspects of ecology that much of the world lets slip from their minds...

How Plausible Is a Good Person?

"How plausible is a good atheist?" asked Christian Today last week. Given that most people in Britain are de facto atheists, living their lives with only a desultory nod to religion, the question might as well have been "How plausible is a good person?"

Nelson Mandela Will Be With Us Forever

Saints are part of our shared humanity. Mandela has gone, but not really. He is still with us and has left such a powerful legacy that it is still alive within our consciousness. We are so sad that he has finally left this life, although we all knew that his body was finally getting old and tired.

International Education Week: Why Education is so Important

Education is a process of providing structured information. It is accessible to every child for free in the developed world, so much so that it's almost taken for granted. The developing worlds are still striving to gain easily attainable education systems like ours, because education is seen as a platform whereby children can greaten themselves.

Quit Scaremongering Over My NHS

We're all aware of the challenges faced by the NHS and its staff, and how savings have made life difficult for a lot of people working in Trusts across the UK, but what doesn't really help patients and their families - which is what the NHS is there to do - is flaming, berating, scaremongering and being straight-up inappropriate on places like Twitter.

Have We Given Up Being Nice?

BritChick Paris

We have lost respect for our fellow human beings. We don't respect their personal space, their feelings, their boundaries, them full stop. We have become so self-obsessed we can't see as far as our own nose. We have so much yet nothing is ever enough. It all spells one word. Ingratitude.

But when Isobel was finally diagnosed with cerebral palsy and global developmental delay at one year old, I found myself dealing with extraordinarily complex psychologies. Yes, I had a label; but it wasn't what I expected.

God is Not a Christian

Desmond Tutu

Peace, prosperity and justice - we can have them all if we work together. There is no 'us' or 'them'. God is not a Christian but neither is S(he) an adherent of any other religion because no religion has monopoly on God.

Ain't Nothing but a Label

How many labels do you hear each day? What about the numerous labels you place upon yourself throughout the day? It seems that today's society is made up of endless classifications and identifiers, but are they helping us or are they simply restricting our soul progression?

Syria, What a Victorious Revolution!

Syrians didn't expect to be let down by the same humanity who didn't abandon their Tunisian, Egyptian and Libyan brothers. Dear so-called humanity, what makes Syrians unworthy of receiving your real support of our aspirations to live in freedom and dignity?
