Kristine L. Alave and TJ Burgonio of The Philippine Daily Inquirer report that on Thursday, August 2, Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Tagle "issued a circular urging the faithful to converge at the Edsa Shrine on Saturday (August4) for a mass and rally against the bill."

 

The report quoted Tagle’s letter, wherein he said, "Relying on the power of prayer and the necessity of informed awareness, we will gather together to be informed, enlightened and emboldened once more. We also wish to express why we believe the reproductive health bill is not the solution to our many problems as individuals and as a country as it will even give rise to many other problems more pernicious and pervasive than the ones we face in the present. I enjoin all parish priests and leaders of communities and lay movements to rally their members and endorse participation in this important gathering aimed at communicating a strong and sincere appeal to the goodwill of our legislators."

 

The report noted: "On August 7, the House will vote on whether to wrap up debate and move the bill forward.  CBCP officials said they would have a vigil at the House on the eve of the vote and that mass actions would also be held in other dioceses."
