The C.A.G today issued its Voter's Guide for Catholics in the run up to the forthcoming UK General Election. The guide is non-partisan, but is unequivocally pro-life. It warns Catholics that they may incur "Eternal Hell Fire" if they deliberately vote against Church teaching on the five non-negotiables and remain unrepentant. It will be made available to the UK's five million Catholics via a national advertising campaign, mailshots, e-mails, hand outs and free download via its website at www.catholic-action.com.

Robert Williams, the group's Secretary remarked: "We have just lost a Pope who lived a pro-life message and died with dignity despite his suffering. We are imploring Catholics to use their vote as a weapon for the dignity of life and as a mark of respect for the late John Paul II - the Great."

The material in the guide is mainly based on a similar version issued in the United States, which was read by over 15 million of its citizens in the run up to the recent Presidential election, where the pro-life Catholic vote made an impact in the deciding state of Ohio.

C.A.G's pro-life spokesperson, Chris Walsh (Ex Chairman of SPUC) stated: "Our guide lays down clearly, the non-negotiables that any serious Catholic cannot ever morally support i.e. Abortion, Euthanasia, Embryonic Stem Cell Research, Human Cloning and Same-Sex Unions. Catholics need to be made more aware of how serious a sin it is to vote for moral evils so clearly opposed to the Church's teachings. This guide assists them with regard to MP candidate selection in a clear way. From experience, MP's words on pro-life issues are meaningless, it is how they actually vote that really matters."

C.A.G's National Coordinator, John Gunn commented: "Catholic voters need to be made much more aware of the consequences of their voting actions. For instance, to knowingly elect pro-abortionists, with a given alternative, is a crime against humanity. To open a fair abortion debate, we have publicly requested that the BBC host such a debate. Its horrors need to be known by all. Being pro-abortion is an easy position to take when you are not the one being killed. Over the next 5 years of parliament, another 900,000 pre-born potential UK citizens may be legally murdered in the womb if this horror is not stopped now. Voting for pro-abortion candidates can leave these victim's blood directly on your hands."
