National “Philippines for Life” Congress opens today

Our country’s pro-life movement will never be outdone.  After actively participating in yesterday’s protest rally at the Manila Summit, our pro-life advocates get together again these next two days in their tireless efforts to speak up in the defense of the cause of life.  May God continue to bless our country’s pro-life movement.
