Compare and contrast

Ah yes, Maria Miller, the new equalities minister, opts out of the page 3 controversy:

Asked if she thought topless pictures degraded women, a cause recently reignited by the nomorepage3 petition, she sidestepped. "It is for newspapers to decide what they print and it is for consumers to decide what they buy.
"That is the way it should be, and I don't think it is right for ministers to dictate what goes on any page of a newspaper, whether it is page 3 or not."

And yet, this same minister, apparently regardless of medical evidence, is more than willing to dictate when a woman may have an abortion.

As they say, go figure ...
