The site has collected over 5,000 signatures in the last few days and urges voters to contribute information regarding an MP’s voting intentions with regard to abortion.
We know as a result of polling, that 72% of the public want to see a reduction in the upper limit from 24 weeks to 20 and that Labour MPs are largely against this move.
I would not like to be a Labour MP who votes against a twenty week amendment, and be sat on a majority of less than 5000 because Alive and Kicking are going to make sure the electorate know exactly which way every MP votes.
In addition to this, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the National press piggy back on to the Alive and Kicking idea and start running their own name and shame campaigns.
I will be launching my own 20 week web site very shortly, but in the meantime if you would like to sign the Alive+Kicking petition click on the link below.
