Catholic bishops coming to the House of Representatives to monitor voting on the RH bill

Members of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines will be going to the House of Representatives on Wednesday to monitor how lawmakers will vote on the Reproductive Health bill.

Members of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines will be going to the House of Representatives on Wednesday to monitor how lawmakers will vote on the Reproductive Health bill.

 

Evelyn Macairan of the Philippine Star quotes Fr. Melvin Castro, executive secretary of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines-Episcopal Commission on Family and Life as saying bishops will be at the House to watch voting on the controevrsial bill.

 

"It was also a sentiment presented by the anti-RH legislators because they said they need the moral, spiritual and physical presence of the bishops. But the main reason why the bishops will be there is to pray for them (lawmakers)," he also said.

 

The bishops, anti-RH lawmakers, and other opponents of the bill will hold a  Catholic mass at noon on Wednesday at St. Peter Church along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City. "In a way it's also a blessing and prayer to them before they go to Congress to vote," Castro said.
