Don't give public money to anti-abortion groups, give the 'tampon tax' money to other women's charities instead
Why is this important?
The government announced this week that they are going to give some of our tax money to an anti-abortion group. It’s money that comes from the “tampon tax”, the extra money we pay on sanitary products. Money that the government promised would go to charities that help women.
But instead of helping women, the government’s decided to give one of the biggest amounts - £250,000 - to an anti-abortion group who give one-sided advice to women, instead of providing a fair service. It puts even more pressure on women who are already dealing with a really tough decision.
If you think that our tax money shouldn’t be supporting anti-abortion groups, then please sign the petition now.
