Philippines' 'Walk for Life' February 27, 2018

Filipino Catholics came out strongly against what they described as "threats to life" in rallies held in major cities across the Philippines on Feb. 24.

Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila led priests, nuns, and lay people in an early morning "Walk for Life" around Manila's main park.

In his homily, the Manila prelate appealed to Catholics to value life, even of their enemies, and society's so-called outcasts.

Among the issues raised during the march were drug-related killings, a proposal in Congress to legalize divorce, and changes to the constitution.
