Nadine Dorries: a liar for God

Hi folks. If you've turned up here wondering what Nadine Dorries and her latest "pro women" (i.e. anti-abortion) campaign is all about, here are two recent articles by yours truly that reveal the lie - and the liar - behind it:

Bloggerheads - Nadine Dorries: the missing punchline

Bloggerheads - Nadine Dorries and the mission from God

To summarise as I did here;

Nadine Dorries is completely ignorant of relevant medical procedures, and uses unsubstantiated anecdotes, distorted/falsified statistics, and outright lies to support the campaigns she supports that are unquestionably engineered by religious groups and conceived quite deliberately to restrict a woman's right to govern her own body.

I never said it

Nadine posted on Conservative Home yesterday. The usual stuff, pro-woman blah blah blah. You know it by now.

Today a post appeared on her blog reference the ConHome post...
As I predicted, those who wish to mis represent my position on abortion came out yesterday in an attempt to both discredit me and therefore undermine both the issue itself and the case of vulnerable women.
Having been challenged on my position regarding late abortion, I posted the following comment on Conservative Home (link on blog below). This morning it has been suggested that I post that comment on today’s blog in order to clarify my position on late termination.

Dorries would get challenged less if she bullshitted less and her position needs no mis-representing.

I have no idea what comments she is on about as there are only a couple on the ConHome post and non that directly call bullshit on her.

After a little more waffle Dorries then reproduces the comment she supposedly left at ConHome which for some reason resurects her Hand of Hope myth...
I have never claimed a baby 'punched' it's way out of the womb

Well I, again, call bullshit... nearly.

My second point is look at the tear in the uterus. See how jiggered it is just above the hand; and yet the rest of the surgically incised openings are controlled and neat.

This is, in all likelihood, because the hand unexpectedly thrust out. It would be a poor surgeon who allowed the uterine tear to be so messy, and this is no ‘poor’ surgeon.


OK. "Thrust" isn't quite 'punched', but in the context that Nadine is using and suggesting, it amounts to the same thing. Dorries, by bringing attention to the jiggered edges of the womb where the baby supposedly put it's arm through against the neat cut that the surgeon made, is meaning the baby forcefully broke through the wall of the uterus tearing it, finish off holding the finger of the surgeon.

Thrust/punch. in this context the action is the same.
