Lily Allen - Lily Allen In Twitter Abortion Debate

British singer Lily Allen has waded into the debate about abortion by defending women who choose to have terminations.

The pregnant Smile hitmaker took to her Twitter.com page on Tuesday (09Oct12) to voice her opinion after Britain's Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt backed calls to halve the legal abortion limit from 24 weeks to 12.

Allen, who has previously lost two unborn children, tweeted, "Can small minded idiot blokes stop telling women whether or not they're entitled to abortions please? Enough now... The day the number of single father households equal the number of single mother households is the day I start to listen to their views."

The pop star was then bombarded with criticism from pro-life campaigners, but she hit back by explaining why she supports a woman's right to choose.

In a series of posts, she added, "It's really hard to work and have a baby at the same time, because a baby can't stay at home on its own all day while you go to work. Sometimes there are lovely dads who take their responsibilities very seriously and work very hard to look after their babies. These men should be applauded. But, sometimes, quite often, when the babys (sic) cry a lot the man gets frustrated and leaves the baby and the lady that had the baby. He sticks his fingers in his ears and pretends that the baby isn’t really there, he stops answering his phone when the lady calls. The lady gets very sad and feels very alone and angry and even though she loves her baby more than anything... She wonders what her life might have been like if she had never had the baby in the first place.

"So to all the Pro Lifers spamming me with s**t... This is one of the many reasons I believe a woman should have a right to choose."
