Don't Lump Muslims With Jacob Rees-Mogg On Abortion After Rape - We're Not That Extreme

Sufiya Ahmed | Posted 13.09.2017 | UK Politics

The 'What if a Muslim had said this' argument implies that Muslims secretly agree with Mr Rees-Mogg, but are just too frightened to voice their real views. This is simply not true. Muslims have not stood up to claim that they disagree with a raped woman's abortion simply because they do not believe that. The vast majority of the 1.6billion Muslims in the world do not believe that ALL abortion is forbidden. Yes, you read that correctly.

Religion Has No Place In Politics And It Never Will

While religion plays a huge part in many people's lives, they recognise that it's not appropriate to bring it up in certain aspects of life. It's a particularly tricky topic of conversation in today's climate as people are offended easily and it is the single greatest cause of war on our planet. One area it is completely counter-productive in is politics.

How Politics Has Become A Reality TV Freak Show

A political world in which clowns like Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg can be seriously spoken of as potential prime ministers is a world in which the nursery is mistaken for the university library. Any day now, I expect Liam Fox to throw his toys out of his playpen. It'll probably be entertaining, if nothing else.

Anti-Gay Marriage, Anti-Abortion: PM Rees-Mogg Would BE A Disaster

John Reynolds | Posted 07.09.2017 | UK Politics

So, to conclude: if Rees Mogg became Prime Minister then the Conservatives and Labour would become even more polarised than they currently are, offering the electorate an even greater choice between the parties. However, it would be a complete disaster for people who support equality and a fairer society for all. Is it likely to happen? Probably not. But you never know. So continue to spread love and stand up for what is right.

Why We Shouldn't Be Complacent About The Idea Of Jacob Rees-Mogg Becoming Prime Minister

Lee Burkwood | Posted 06.09.2017 | UK Politics
Lee Burkwood

Make no mistake, if the Conservatives ditch the unauthentic and robotic May and go for someone that appears a lot more genuine, authentic yet more extreme in their views like JRM, this could help them a lot. We need to take the idea that Rees-Mogg could become Prime Minister seriously and for those of us that abhor his views, start the fightback now by exposing him and openly criticising him as much as possible whilst presenting a positive alternative.

Jacob Rees-Mogg's Stance On Abortion Isn't Eccentric, It's Extreme

Katherine O’Brien | Posted 06.09.2017 | UK Politics
Katherine O’Brien

At bpas, we believe that every politician is entitled to hold their own opinion on abortion. However, we will always stand firm against MPs allowing their own personal convictions to stand in the way of women's ability to act on their own. And we must be clear: the views Rees-Mogg expressed this morning are not "traditional" or "eccentric" - they are extreme. And neither the British public nor our parliament will support them.

The most obvious obstacle is the unpopularity of his opinions. Mogg an emphatic social conservative. He has consistently voted against gay rights, criticised abortion laws for being "a form of contraception" and was guest speaker at the annual dinner of Traditional Britain - a group that wants to repatriate ethnic minorities.
