Abortion votes are, by convention, not subject to party whip. This is an area of policy-making that is best kept out of the party political structure - witness the way the issue has polluted the political environment in the US.
Conservative MP (and member of the Tombstone group of right-wingers) Nadine Dorries has strong views in opposition to abortion and has enthusiastically leapt aboard the Alive and Kicking campaign which is highlighting MPs who have voted in favour of choice and have majorities under 5000. Curiously, the three she has picked on so far have all been Labour women - Laura Moffat, Barbara Follett and Jacqui Smith.
In the name of balance, here's a couple of equally vulnerable Tories that should draw her attention - and a Lib Dem as well.
Termination of Pregnancy Bill
Ben Wallace - Con, majority 4171
Mark Lancaster - Con, majority 1665
Lorely Burt - LD, majority 279
I hope that Nadine will feature these in future columns - I wouldn't want to think that she's exploiting a serious ethical issue for cheap political gain.
