MANILA, Oct. 29, 2012—In a massive display of brotherhood, hundreds of members of the Knights of Columbus from the provinces of Nueva Ecija, Aurora and the prelature of Infanta gathered on the weekend for a motorcade to protest the controversial Reproductive Health (RH) bill.
State Program Director Bonifacio B. Martinez during the round-table dinner urged hundreds of fellow knights not to vote for pro-RH politicians.
“Elections are coming up and there are pro-RH politicians, aren’t there? So it is up to you to determine who those are; I won’t tell you anymore. And I hope you don’t vote for these pro-RH politicians,” Bonifacio said in Filipino.
Dubbed a “Celebration of Life,” the event kicked off with a Eucharistic celebration, followed by the motorcade that started from St. Nicholas of Tolentine, Crypta Cabanatuan City to the Nueva Ecija High School, where a round-table discussion of District Deputies took place. It was attended by prominent personalities from the province, including Suzuki Philippines president Satoshi Uchida.
Members of the Knights of Columbus vowed to continue promoting a negative vote campaign, which they said would be carried out nationwide. (CBCP for Life)
