Hundreds of pro-lifers turn up in Congress

Posted By: admin On:

MANILA, Dec. 3, 2012—Some 500 life advocates representing different parishes, dioceses and schools trooped to the House of Representatives today to show their disapproval of plans to pass the reproductive health (RH) bill, which was reported to take place today after Malacañang and President Benigno Aquino III’s allies met to discuss the measure.

Present to show their pro-life stand and to support the anti-RH legislators are pro-lifers from the archdiocese of Lipa, the dioceses of Novaliches, Antipolo, Malolos, and Parañaque; representatives of the Basilica Minor of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo; and members of Couples for Christ – Foundation for Family and Life (CFC-FFL), Alliance for the Family Inc. (ALFI), Knights of Columbus, and UP for Life; and students and faculty members from the University of Asia & the Pacific (UA&P).

An insider revealed that security personnel had been earlier advised to open the doors of the third floor galleries due to the expected arrival of hundreds of concerned pro-life citizens, who had been enjoined to be present during legislative proceedings. (CBCP for Life)
