The University of Nottingham Students Union has chosen to become pro-choice in terms of abortion. This is not a point of abortion but the Students Union is meant to be a representative of all students; by doing this they no longer representing the whole student body.

By the Students Union introducing a pro-choice policy, this sets an ideal that the Students Union will be allowed to be opinionated on multiple different topics. This reduces our ability to be able to be open in our views at the Students Union because it allows the Students Union to be shut down people and groups. There is a chance that they'll begin to bring forward views upon politics and religion. This is a very slippery slope leading to much larger issues.

The final issue is that the Students Union and the University is meant to be a place of learning and a place where people can formulate opinions and views on different subjects. Especially in a world where we choose too often than not to talk and discuss issues allowing extreme views. The Students Union, by making this choice, closes off a place where freedom of speech is able to be exercised is fueling humanities issues. We need the Students Union to be neutral because otherwise where will they stop? They are now choosing to say opinions can be wrong and excluding a collective of students. 

This act by the Students Union will make it a defunct organisation for it can no longer claim to be representing the entire student body.
