BBC: Williams urges debate on abortion
The Archbishop of Canterbury has joined the debate on abortion by calling for an urgent review of the current law.
Religion and politics, eh, don't you just love them? We're turning into America. Anyone would think there was a general election in the offing.
While we're at it, can we please also have an urgent review of the separation of church and state (or lack thereof in England), hereditary bishops in the House of Lords, creationism in British schools, homophobia in the Anglican church, and whether the existence of an omniscient god denies humans free will?
They don't like it up 'em, Mr Mainwaring!
