When asked about Abortion, Mr Rees-Mogg replied in an eloquent fashion and said it was “morally indefensible” regarding Abortion and added that his views wouldn’t change the law of the land as the issues were already ‘settled’.

He added: ”Life is sacrosanct and begins at the point of conception”

Rees Mogg was also asked about his views on same-sex marriage, which he opposes due to his religious beliefs.

“I am a Catholic and I take the teachings of the Catholic Church seriously,” he said.

“Marriage is a sacrament and the decision of what is a sacrament lies with the Church not with Parliament.”

The Church’s teachings on faith and morals were “authoritative”, he said, but he added it was not for him to judge others.

“With same-sex marriage, that is something that people are doing for themselves,” he said.

“With abortion, it is something that is done to the unborn child. That is different.”

Mr Rees-Mogg also said that his views wouldn’t change current laws on Abortion and Same Sex marriage because these things have already been settled and are the “Law of the land”.
