Dorries’ Abstinence Speech – The Fact Check

Looking back over the speech given by Nadine Dorries when introducing her ridiculous 10 minute rule bill, there are several factual innaccuracies to be added to list I started the other day. Take, for example, Dorries’ claims about the opinions of Dame Joan Bakewell… I am sure that […]

Dorries Through the Looking Glass

‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’ ‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’ ‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, […]

Visualising Dorries and the Anti-abortion Lobby

Like most veteran campaigners, experience tells you when you’ve successfully pushed your opponents’ buttons. That’s certainly what happened on Friday when Nadine Dorries and Dr Peter Saunders got wind of my exposé of Saunders’ 2007 presentation on the full aims and objectives of the mothballed ‘Alive and Kicking […]

Dorries’ amendments blown apart by RCPsych review

Let’s recap where we are here. Last week, Nadine Dorries put forward two amendments to the Government’s highly controversial Health and Social Care bill. If accepted by parliament these amendments would have the effect of preventing independent abortion service providers, such as BPAS and Marie Stopes International, from […]

The hidden agenda behind Dorries’ ‘Right to Know’ campaign

Exclusive… A document obtained yesterday by the Ministry of Truth exposes the full but hitherto hidden agenda behind Nadine Dorries’ ‘Right to know’ campaign, which has recently put forward two abortion-related amendments to the Government’s Health and Social Care Bill. The document, a Powerpoint presentation produced by Dr […]

Doing Dorries a Disservice

As might be expected, Tom Chivers’ post on Nadine Dorries’ ‘Right to Know’ campaign has drawn a response from Dorries, even if she is merely intemperately parroting the comments of Dr. Peter Saunders of the Christian Medical Fellowship: Tom Chivers has done the Daily Telegraph a disservice which […]

Does Dorries know whose ‘research’ she’s promoting?

Yesterday I ran through the ‘plethora’ of evidence that’s being promoted by Nadine Dorries in the mistaken belief that it establishes a causal connection between abortion and subsequent mental health problems experienced by women who’ve undergone an elective abortion. In the process I also introduced you, perhaps for […]

Dorries’ Abortion Risk ‘Plethora’

The latest piece of anti-abortion trash that’s being bandied around by Nadine Dorries purports to be a list of thirty studies, published in the last five years, which allegedly show that abortion ‘hurts women’s mental health’. It’s a veritable plethora of evidence, and anyone who’s familar with the […]

Dishonesty Dorries Rides [Yet] Again

It is, I think, time to give Nadine Dorries yet another lesson in honesty, openness and transparency and, at the same time, give Iain Dale a much needed lesson in checking your sources before you open your mouth and embarrass yourself. Back in May, Sunny Hundal submitted a […]

Dishonesty Dorries Rides Again

If there’s one thing worse than an cover-up, its a badly executed cover-up, and you’ll find no better example of the latter if you take the time to visit the website of Nadine Dorries. To give a quick recap of the story so far, a short while back, […]
