Families take up fight vs RH bill


Picking up where the embattled Church leaders left off, a nationwide organization calling itself Families Against the RH Bill is taking the offensive in the lobby against proposed legislation on government-funded distribution of contraceptives.

The group is holding a simultaneous sticker campaign in various parts of Metro Manila, Bataan, Pampanga, Baguio, Bacolod, Cebu, Davao and Cagayan de Oro City today. Follow-up activities will be done on April 2 and April 16.

Aside from the group’s main message, “No to RH Bill,” catchy slogans like “The Pill Kills,” “If you are not afraid, then you are not aware,” “It’s easy to be pro-choice when you’re not the one being killed,” will be distributed in strategic venues.

TV personality and former national athlete Christine Jacob-Sandejas, one of the convenors of Families Against the RH Bill, said initial funding for the stickers was contributed by the members. To sustain the campaign, the organization will ask recipients for donations of P5 per sticker. The member-families will bring along their children in offering stickers to motorists in various parts of the country.
