After President Aquino’s public endorsement of the Responsible Parenthood/Reproductive Health Bill through his 3rd State of the Nation Address, the Hierarchy of the Catholic church with other Anti-RH Bill groups started again their offensives against it. It also came after congress announced that on Tueday August 7, 2012 the controversial bill will be voted on.
Yesterday several Catholic groups and Anti-RH Bill groups gathered in EDSA Shrine to (as they say) call on God to influence the mind of every Senators and Representatives not to vote for the bill. They also denied insinuations that the protest rally was done to pressure members of the congress to vote against the passage of the bill. And based on their statements and arguments it seemed that they are using the art of deception, lies and mis-information for people to back out support for this important bill in congress.
