Make your vote count!
Why do I need to Vote Pro-Life?
There is a concerted campaign to legalise abortion in Northern Ireland. Pro-abortion organisations like AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL and BPAS (British Pregnancy Advisory Service) are conspiring with politicians – both here and in Westminster – to change our pro-life laws and legalise the killing of unborn children, right up to the moment of birth!
Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK and Ireland where unborn children are still protected in law. But with the political stalemate in the Stormont Assembly, MPs in Westminster are undermining the democratic process by trying to force abortion on Northern Ireland against the wishes of the people.
While Councils in Northern Ireland have no direct power over abortion laws, local Councils are now being used to support motions calling for the legalisation of abortion up to birth. In 2018, Sinn Féin, SDLP, Alliance, and Green Party members of Belfast and Derry City Councils voted in support of abortion motions.
Abortion groups are also urging Councils to create “censorship zones” which would criminalise pro-life groups praying, or offering help to women, outside abortion referral agencies. On Thursday 2nd May 2019, vote for pro-life candidates to show that you want unborn babies and their mothers to remain protected from abortion.
Make your vote count for unborn babies
Please make full use of the ‘Transferable Vote’ system to elect only pro-life Councillors. On your ballot paper, mark number 1 beside the pro-life candidate of your choice. Remember to continue on for as long as you like along the ballot paper, marking 2, 3, 4, 5, etc, beside other pro-life candidates in order of your preference.
But DO NOT mark any number beside a pro-abortion candidate!

What must I do?
Before you vote on 2nd May, contact the candidates in your constituency and ask them where they stand on the abortion issue. If a candidate cannot promise to protect the right to life of unborn children in all circumstances, they cannot be considered a suitable candidate for public office – no matter how appealing their other policies may be. If a candidate is unwilling to protect the life of a little unborn baby, how can they respect your value and dignity as a human being?
REMEMBER! - without the right to life, all other rights are meaningless
There are many ways to contact your candidates. Some of the most commonly used methods are: phone; email; sending letters; Facebook; Twitter; visiting their Constituency Office.
For the candidates contact details, see the inside page - “What are the Political Parties’ views on abortion?” or telephone Precious Life on 028 9027 8484 for further details. You can also help the “VOTE Pro-Life”Campaign by distributing more leaflets to your family, friends, church, and community. Contact Precious Life to request more leaflets.
