Children have a right to be protected and valued

• On November 10, the citizens of Ireland have the opportunity to show that we are people of action, a nation of people who truly stand behind the premise that children are our most precious commodity.

We are being given the opportunity to prove not only to ourselves, but also to the world, that we are a people who do not merely say we value our children, but take action to ensure it.

We can do that by voting Yes for a change in the Constitution that will acknowledge that all the children of Ireland have equal rights and are entitled to the same basic protections under the law. They have a right to be cared for, protected and valued.
