Billy Keane: Ultrasound picture shows a tiny baby, not a foetus or an embryo or a thing

I HAVE been putting off writing this column for weeks now. I was afraid. It is not easy for a man who writes about women's issues. Not easy to play God either.

I am for gay marriage, contraception, women priests, sex between consenting adults, a free press and equal rights for all.

Most of my friends are in the liberal camp. I often have difficulty here in expressing forthright views because of cowardice, the wish to be seen as everyone's friend and also because I have so many skeletons rattling around in my cupboard that there is hardly room to store a tin of beans. There is a very slippery slope attached to the high moral ground.
