The #BBC says it will not include abortion information on its Action Line website - a site that provides signposting for viewers seeking support on issues covered in their programmes - because it's too "contentious".

These organisations have written to the @BBC calling on them to reverse their stance. Read our letter in full here: bpas.org/media/3103/let…
The issue emerged after an episode of #CallTheMidwife, in which a woman died from an illegal backstreet abortion. Viewers visited BBC Action Line for support but were unable to find information on abortion.

Hi tweeps! Remember back in March, I made a mega-thread of amazing #WomenInSTEM that you should follow, especially for #IWD2018? If not, here's the 'moment' I made from it twitter.com/i/moments/9718…
Well, today (19 Nov) is #InternationalMensDay #IMD2018, and I wanted to mark the occasion. So here are SIXTY men working in STEM who also happen to be some of my favourite tweeps. This is by no means an exhaustive list - please don't be offended if you're not on it!
PS: I have some actual (paid) work to do today, so I'll update the list when I can, in between all my other commitments. Please be patient 😊
