Christian MP facing deselection over abortion vote

Reports suggest Dr Lisa Cameron is the only Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) MP who has not been approved to stand in the next general election, expected later this year.

The MP says activists in the party who disagreed with her decision to vote against lifting Northern Ireland’s abortion ban are behind the decision.

According to The Times, SNP members have been asked to vote on whether they want sitting MPs to stand again or whether an internal selection should take place.

Dr Cameron has been subject to much abuse online following her vote in July.

She said she went against her party as a matter of conscience based around her faith and her experience of two late term miscarriages.

The vote was a free vote, meaning she wouldn’t be disciplined for going against her party.

Pro-life group Right to Life UK has been speaking out for the MP.
