MANILA, April 30, 2013—With barely two weeks left before Filipinos cast their votes in the midterm elections, speakers from Catholic Vote Philippines (CVP) shed more light on responsible voting and on the Reproductive Health (RH) Law for some 400 residents of various towns in Leyte.
Linda Valenzona and Rey Echavez, M.D. of CVP, an organization of lay Catholics who provide voter education and election catechesis, spoke before the attendees of the seminar held at the Eastern Visayas State University in Tacloban on April 27.
Valenzona discussed the three ethical principles in choosing a candidate while Echavez tackled the RH law and its implications.
The event was organized by lay group In Defense of Life and Family (INDOLAF) of the Archdiocese of Palo, Leyte, and had some 400 participants from the four suffragan dioceses of Palo—Borongan, Calbayog, Catarman and Naval— as well as Maasin, a suffragan of Cebu.
As a result of the talks, participants expressed eagerness to spread the word about CVP and the drive to empower more people with election catechetical instruction.
