Let’s admit it: Jacob Rees-Mogg has been SHAMED into dropping shares in abortion pills

Jacob Rees-Mogg on Good Morning Britain: No to abortion, no to same-sex marriage.

Let’s get this straight: First Jacob Rees-Mogg told viewers of Good Morning Britain that he believed all life is sacred, even if it was the product of rape.

Then it emerged he was a shareholder in an Indonesian firm that manufactures pills that are used for abortions. He brushed aside accusations of hypocrisy by saying abortions are illegal in Indonesia. But where else does the company sell its pills?

Apologies for the mis-spelling of his surname (it’s Rees-Mogg). This is an image by Wear Red, on Facebook.

THEN it emerged that he was a shareholder in an Indian firm that also manufactures abortion drugs.

Now his investment company has dumped those shares.

Mr Rees-Mogg insists he does not make investment decisions. Maybe not, but This Writer would be surprised if he had not at least offered advice in this instance.

Note also that his excuses are becoming increasingly secular. Whereas, with the Indonesian shares, he justified them by saying they are not intended for abortion, the Indian shares are “very small in proportion to total assets”.

But isn’t every life sacred, Mr Rees-Mogg?

Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg’s investment company has dumped stock it held in a second pharmaceutical firm selling abortion drugs.

The Sunday Mirror has learned the strident anti-abortionist had been profiting from shares held in drug firm FDC in India – where abortion is allowed.

It follows our revelations last week of similar investments in Indonesia, which the MP brushed off insisting: “The world is not always what you want it to be.”

The holding of 186,000 shares in India’s FDC, worth £467,800, was bought by Somerset Capital Management, of which Mr Rees-Mogg is a founder.

The shares, listed in the firm’s March interim report, have since been sold.

The MP for North East Somerset said he did not make investment decisions and defended the holding in the Indian firm as “very small in proportion to total assets”.

    The nasty hypocrite exposed publicly for what he is.

    Indeed, Rees-Smug, the world is not what we want it to be. I would like a strident Catholic not to sell abortion pills. And, when he’s found out, I’d like him to say something more appropriate and even humble. Like an apology to God. But no chance, in this world where he can pontificate all he likes about morals, I don’t think anyone intelligent is listening to him.

    It’s the excuses that make it worse. I’m glad that he has ditched the shares. Profiting from death is not a good thing.

    When your position on a moral choice is unequivocally black and white, “abortion under any circumstances is wrong” then “a small holding” is like being “a little bit pregnant.” Rees-Mogg is unequivocally a hypocrit.
