MANILA, May 4 (PNA) – Catholic bishops have urged anti-reproductive health bill advocates to put stickers and posters against the controversial measure in homes, businesses and cars.
Jaro Archbishop Angel Lagdameo said he supports the campaign to show the government that many families are against the measure.
In his archdiocese, for instance, he said, anti-RH bill posters can be seen outside parish churches and in several houses.
“I support it. In fact we already have it in all our parish churches and there are several houses with posters and placards against the bill,â€ Lagdameo said.
For his part, Cotabato Auxiliary Bishop Jose Colin Bagaforo is also backing the campaign to raise peopleâ€™s awareness about the RH bill.
He added that families can also place red ribbon outside their homes â€œwhich symbolizes life.â€
“We chose life rather than death,â€ Bagaforo said.
Former Manila Mayor Lito Atienza, chairman emeritus of Pro-Life Philippines, earlier called on Filipinos to show their objection against the bill through posters and placards.
The drive, he said, is part of a â€œsilent protestâ€ not just by Catholics but by other religious groups valuing life.
â€œFilipinos should show President Aquino and the lawmakers their strong opposition and sentiments against the RH bill,â€ Atienza said. (PNA)
