Anti-abortion Life charity will get cash from UK tampon tax
Government confirms group will receive £250,000 despite outcry from MPs and women’s groups
There are a number of women in the country who are anti-abortion. Why shouldn’t their interests be funded?
That’s the argument being made, that only “progressive” causes should receive such money, isn’t it?
As it actually happens this isn’t the point at issue anyway:
A longlist said Life would receive £250,000 for “housing, practical help, counselling, emotional support and life-skills training for young pregnant women who are homeless”. The sum was among the largest grants on the list.
One would have thought there would be a certain amount of support for this. You know, abortion is “choice” isn’t it? Aiding people in actually having a choice is a good thing then, no? Rather than choice only doing what you’re told to.
