GENERAL ELECTION 2011 – Use Your Vote to Protect Human Life
The Pro Life Campaign has launched a new postcard initiative.
We are asking those who believe in protecting the right to life to send postcards to their local politicians telling them that they will only vote for candidates or parties with a record of defending life in the next election. The threats to unborn human life at present in Ireland are as grave as Ireland has ever faced.
The Supreme Court has ruled in the R-v-R case last december that the lives of human embryos in clinics or laboratories are not protected under Article 40.3.3 of our Constitution. The Government is preparing new legislation on this and unless pro-life people act now, we could be faced with legislation allowing the destruction of human embryos in clinics and laboratories. And it is possible that the outcome of the A, B & C -v- Ireland case in the European Court of Human Rights will trigger a new push for legislation allowing abortions to be carried out in Ireland.
To tell your politicians that you are against these proposals, and that any politician who supports them will not receive your vote in the next election, send one of these postcards to each of your local TDs and Senators, and ask your family, friends and acquaintances to do the same.
It's a simple, effective way for you to play a real part in sending a strong and united message to our politicians, urging them to protect human life from its fragile beginnings. See the postcard and order your free copies here.
