Remove LIFE anti-abortion organisation from Wolverhampton
We, the undersigned, petition the council to Not support LIFE (anti abortion) charity by allowing them premises for charity shops.
Wolverhampton has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in England, some wards have over double the national average. We DO need immediate, non judgemental intervention with this but what we do NOT need is an anti abortion charity making our women especially young women (as they are more vulnerable and impressionable) feel guilty about an already incredibly difficult decision. At the moment LIFE have a prime location to target women and girls and force their outdated and judgemental opinions, this causes a detrimental effect on the mental health and wellbeing of women but also has an impact on continued unwanted pregnancies through feelings of guilt or remorse. LIFE have been in Wolverhampton for far too many years and it is about time that they were not supported further by the council by offering them premises to further their cause.
