Demand that Life repay the £250,000 donation from tampon tax funds

This petition had 39 supporters

We the undersigned request that the anti-abortion charity Life repay the British tax payer the full amount donated to them from the Tampon Tax fund. 

We do not agree with the biased agenda of this charity, nor the pseudo-science it uses to back up its claims, and believe this was a wholly inappropriate allocation for these funds which should be reversed with immediate effect. 

The Tampon Tax is already controversial which has been discussed elsewhere, but the donation of these funds to an organisation that actively opposes women's freedoms and bodily autonomy is nothing short of an insult to every one of us who has paid this non-optional tax. As has been pointed out in the media, this money would be better spent providing sanitary products for those who can't afford them to ensure their periods don't hold them back from participating in school and work. 

In short, we who pay the tampon tax and our friends and allies oppose this donation and demand that Life pay it back for redistribution to charities who support choice, freedom and equality.
