MANILA, Nov. 23, 2011?Rep. Rachel Marguerite del Mar (Cebu, 1st district) called on other district solons of Cebu to make a stand and oppose the Reproductive Health (RH) bill being debated on in congress.
“Lucky for us, most of our legislators from Cebu City and its province are against RH. As for those in the other districts, I hope they get enlightened soon,” del Mar said.
Dropping by last week’s National “Philippines for Life” Congress organized by Human Life International – Pilipinas, the congresswoman also enjoined solons to be part of 9YL or the nine young pro-life legislators who have declared their pro-life position and released an official statement against the RH bill.
“Anybody who wants to join, we welcome them,” she said, adding that the group is working to talk with people who may not yet see the piece of legislation for what it really is.
“We want to show them that [the bill] is a lot more than what they think,… They don’t really know what they are standing for,” del Mar added. (CBCP for Life)
