Faith Schools

On his 2012 by-election campaign website, concerning Croydon schools:

Hindu-ethos school
We have a number of great Christian schools in the borough and the Al Khair Islamic school. It would be great to have a Hindu-ethos school. Our Conservative Council is working with the Avanti Trust to help them bid for funding and our candidate, Andy Stranack, will do everything he can to help.[1]

Abortion

In November 2012, the "Inside Croydon" blog sent a number of questions to the Croydon North by-election candidates. Mr Stranack's answers can be found at: http://insidecroydon.com/2012/11/19/election-questions-andrew-stranack-conservative/

On the issue of abortion, one question was "Should the term for abortion be shorter than 24 weeks?". Mr Stranack answered:

My main concern is that children with disabilities can be aborted after the 24-week limit. I think that this sets a precedent at the very start of life that people with disabilities are second-class citizens. The truth is that every human being is a mixture of abilities and disabilities and we need to be honest about this fact.[2]
