Conservative Party MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, reportedly the second favourite in line for the leadership throne when Theresa May [VIDEO] is out, has appeared on ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” to voice his opinions on abortion and same sex marriage, saying that he is “completely opposed” to both – especially abortion. He said innocently, “People are entitled to hold these views,” but he’s still p*ssed off a lot of pro-choice activists and supporters who are now coming forward with counter-statements.

The British Pregnancy Advisory Service are taking a calm and diplomatic approach with their response

Rees-Mogg did say that the “democratic majority” of the UK are still allowed to marry people of the same sex and get abortions, even though his precious Catholic Church doesn’t think it’s okay, but still, some people are ticked off.

The British #Pregnancy Advisory Service called his views “extreme” and said that they are “wildly at odds” with the general consensus of the public – which is good, because it means it’s just him.

Responding to Rees-Mogg’s comments, the British Pregnancy Advisory Service’s policy research chief, Katherine O’Brien, said that Britain is “a pro-choice country” with “a pro-choice Parliament.” She added that politicians are all “entitled to hold their own opinion on abortion.” However, she said that the important thing is that “their own personal convictions” not get in the way and interfere with the legislation, and that politicians not get blinded and let their views “stand in the way of women’s ability” to do whatever they want with their own bodies. #Jacob Rees Mogg
