Rally supports condom bill
The rally was led by former congressman Ruffy Biazon and former health secretary Esperanza Cabral (both residents of the village).
“This should not happen because lives of women are at stake here,” said Elizabeth Angsioco, head of an organization of women.
“We will not allow rich barangay (village) councils to make poor women and their families suffer more. This ordinance should be put in a trash bin where it belongs,” she added.
But a leading opponent of the bill, Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo, head of CBCP’s national secretariat for social action, again urged Filipino Catholics to “march, pray and rally for life” in a Facebook note.
