MANILA, Philippines – A bishop in Sorsogon said rallies in protest against the passage of reproductive health bill in Congress will intensify in the coming days.

Bishop Arturo Bastes said every diocese in the country should stage its own protest-rallies to pressure President Aquino for him to prevent the passage of the measure.

“I am disappointed because I thought that Pnoy considers it as a non priority bill. But we bishops will continue to fight against it.. and we are determined to fight against it. Even if it will be approved, we will not follow it. Dapat tuloy tuloy pa rin ang mga kilos protesta and I hope many other dioceses will have rallies,” Bastes told Church-run Radyo Veritas.

The bishop is confident that the continuous pressure on the government will block the passage of the bill.

“Even if congress will approved if he disapproves it wala. Kung ibi-veto niya ito, walang saysay yang RH bill na yan,” Bastes added.
