Philippines: Bishops praise Sen. Sotto for anti-RH exposé

Last August 15, Senator Vicente Sotto III delivered the continuation of his “turno en contra” speech  representing the Senate opposition to the controversial Reproductive Health (RH) Bill.  In his speech, the senator bared the foreign agenda behind the RH Bill, and how certain local groups were working to legitimize abortion in the Philippines, with financial help from  certain foreign organizations.  

We continue to pray that the Holy Spirit will help bring into light all that is being hidden in the dark on the issue of the RH Bill.

Senator Vicente Sotto III has won praise from ranking Catholic bishops for his expose surrounding the controversial reproductive health (RH) bill.

“We appreciate those who advocate for pro-God policies,” said Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma, Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).   He further said, “The advocacy of leaders really depends with many things and other context of morality. We are grateful for those who support pro-life laws.”

For his part, Antipolo Bishop Gabriel Reyes, chairman of the CBCP’s Episcopal Commission on Family and Life, said they are still hopeful the RH bill will not be passed into law.  “We are still hopeful even if we really don’t know what our lawmakers are thinking. We are still praying that it will not be passed,” Reyes said.
