A congregation of people for SOLIDARITY and CONSCIENCE for LIFE
Families, Communities & Housing
Marriage & the Family Unit We will campaign for the repeal of all legislation that undermines and devalues the healthy and natural attributes of family life and the family unit. We recognise the importance of the family unit and its critically important role within society. We value marriage (between one man and one woman). We believe that marriage should be cherished, respected and supported. Tax breaks should be given to married couples, especially those with children.
Parental Choice & Consent We respect the rights of parents regarding their childrens up bringing, education, medical needs etc.
The Children are our Future Our children are our future. If we invest in them we invest in our future. We must ensure that every child has access to a good education and quality health care. To protect our children, all pharmaceutical companies must be forced to have some degree of liability regarding their products (i.e. vaccinations). Presently, they are shielded from all liability for harm caused by vaccinations. We believe that all children, especially those at pre-school / primary school age, should be protected from all inappropriate sex education and that parents must have a choice as to what degree of information is given to their children. Children should also be protected from being 'sexualized'. Children should also have more access to outdoor play areas and events, such quality playgrounds and outdoor education activities, through schools, in term time.
Discrimination Each and every person within society has the right to feel safe and be protected from discrimination. We believe that every individual has a right to life - from conception to natural death. We also believe that those more vulnerable within society (such as the unborn, elderly, disabled and the ill) need even more protection and care.
Adoption & Abortion The CDP believes that abortion is never an option and that adoption should be better valued, supported and respected.
Men We will support the dignity and rights of men, supporting them in their roles as partners, husbands, fathers and providers. We will stand against the derogatory way men are often portrayed in advertising. Both men and women deserve equal respect.
Women We will campaign against female circumcision / FGM (female genital mutilation) world wide and fight to defend the dignity of all women no matter what age or race, and value their presence both at home and in the work place. We will support the dignity and rights of women, supporting them in their roles as partners, wives, mothers and providers. We will stand against the derogatory way women are often portrayed in advertising. Both men and women deserve equal respect.
