Vote for a party ready to protect right to life

Does my vote really matter? Do we really think about the political parties' policies here in Northern Ireland before we cast our votes? Should I vote? The answer to the latter is yes, you should vote and make your vote count.

The Government determines every aspect of our lives, from healthcare to education. Voting is an important right. By voting, you are making your voice heard and registering your opinion on how you think the Government should operate.

We all know too well that in Northern Ireland the Troubles contributed in forming many of our beliefs and opinions on who we desire to run our country and govern our people.

As time has gone by and the years have passed, the Troubles have bot been forgotten. However, it should no longer be an orange versus green issue.

We need to cast our votes on a moral stance, the most prominent one: the right to life - the most fundamental right of all. Without this right, all other rights and policies are meaningless.

Without the right to life, unborn children will never see the light of day. We must, therefore, protect life from the moment of conception to natural death.

Before you cast your vote tomorrow, ask yourself, does this party/candidate stand for the most fundamental right of all? Do they deserve my vote?

It's our legislators who determine the law, both in policy and practice. Your vote does matter. Please make it count.
