This product of apparent parental neglect, Josie Cunningham, complete with NHS provided silicone prosthetics, is advertising her impending abortion, at 18+ weeks, because she does not want a this baby to spoil her chances to be on the “Big Brother” unreality show.
Just a couple weeks ago she was tweeting about being able to get free dental work from the NHS because she’s preggers. Now she says she’s aborting, as much for her two sons, as for her personal career ambitions.
The Mirror has some choice quotes from Josie, bound to elicit responses from their readership:
–“Channel 5 were keen to shortlist me then they found out I was pregnant.Then they suddenly turned cold. That was when I started considering an abortion. After the operation I will be going back to them and asking if they will still consider me.”
–“I want to be famous for being me – Josie Cunningham, a glamour model and celebrity in my own right. If I want to do that I need to put my career first.“I want the attention to be on me, not on who fathered my child.”
–“I’ve had five miscarriages so the one good thing about the pregnancy is that it has shown me I can still carry beyond 12 weeks.
The Mirror features a video clip of Josie which provides enough discussion of the issue to allow one to believe that the crazy quotes above could be real. Appended to the article is a survey, asking if their readers would boycott Josie Cunningham if she appeared on Big Brother after her abortion.
