Leaders of "pro-life" groups are due to meet in the central Philippine city of Cebu tomorrow to formulate new strategies to fight a proposed reproductive health (RH) bill in congress. Rene Bullecer, Human Life International country director, said the declaration of President Aquino early this week to prioritize the controversial bill "signals an 'open war' with the Catholic Church." Father Melvin Castro, executive secretary of the Episcopal Commission on Family and Life, said proponents of the bill should not rejoice yet because the fight is still not over. "The fight is just starting…. There’s still a long way to go," he said.
