Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Conservative MP who is tipped to be a strong contender in a future Conservative party leadership contest, has publicly declared he is against same-sex marriage and opposes abortion, even in cases of rape.


The Tory MP was asked by ITV’s Good Morning Britain whether he was in favour of gay marriage and said: “I’m a Catholic, I take the teaching of the Catholic church seriously. Marriage is a sacrament and the view of what marriage is is taken by the church, not parliament.”

“I support the teaching of the Catholic church. The marriage issue is the important thing, this is not how people arrange their lives.”


The father of six also said he was “completely opposed to abortion” and said he believed life begins at the point of conception.
