Catholic Church archbishops suggest ‘key voting issues’

Catholic voters should consider their candidates’ stance on issues including abortion and assisted suicide, ahead of the general election, the Catholic Church in England and Wales has said.

In a letter urging Church members to vote on 7 May, the archbishops of Westminster and Southwark suggested “key issues” for reflection.

They include faith-based education, the living wage and climate change.

Last week the Church of England called for a “fresh moral vision” in politics.

More than 500,000 copies of the letter have been sent to Catholic parishes across England and Wales.

The letter does not endorse any political party, but urges Catholic voters “to think about the kind of society we want here at home and abroad”.
