Jacob Rees-Mogg attacks abortions as ‘cult of death’ and a 'modern tragedy'

Jacob Rees-Mogg made his feelings about abortion known during today's Westminster Hall debate (29 November) on its inclusion in the government’s planned Bill of Rights.

Rees-Mogg has strong Catholic beliefs, however, his response was met with horror from many.

"The extraordinarily high number of babies that are destroyed is something that should sadden us all to the depths of our souls.”
