In another probable government blunder Jeremy Hunt has admitted he backs a 12 week limit from conception on when abortions may legally take place.

The sensational claim in tomorrows London Times from the Health Secretary is sure to stir up much debate for the next few days at least.

tbg. would be very surprised if this becomes Tory policy as Cameron has said in the past he'd only consider bringing the limit down from the current 24 weeks to 20.

We must never go backwards on womens' rights or allow the illegal underground surgeons to prey on millions of what would be desperate and vulnerable people.

+UPDATE+ 22:56 - Tory MP Nadine Dorries has Tweeted she is delighted with Hunts comments on abortion.
