Politics lecturer, 32, at Southampton University is suspended for likening abortion to NECROPHILIA on social media

A university lecturer has been suspended after likening abortion to necrophilia on social media then responding ‘it’s a great tweet’ following a furious backlash.

Dr Justin Murphy, from the University of Southampton, was blasted by students after a string of ‘hateful’ tweets including one where he used the slur ‘retard’.

‘If you’re pro-choice in the abortion debate, I find it very difficult to see how you could possibly have ethical objections to necrophilia,’ the politics lecturer tweeted.
