MANILA, Jan. 27, 2013—Even with the Reproductive Health (RH) bill now implemented, several pro-life youth groups maintained they are not giving up the fight and will continue the battle against the law.
The Youth United for the Philippines (YUP) has organized a 1st pro-life youth meeting this year in an effort to solidify networking with other young people who want to do something positive for the country.
Called “Reclaiming our Future”, the meeting has on top of its agenda the solidifying of the Pro-Life youth network and planning for an organized strategy to educate voters for May 2013 elections.
Spearheaded by YUP President Anthon Lumicao, Mr. Robert Cortes and Mr. Vars Sunio, both instructors at the University of Asia and the Pacific, the youth meeting is an answer to the question: “What now? We’ve publicly declared our sentiments and now things have seemingly gone flat! What do we do next?”
“We are convinced that the Filipino youth can still do something to steer our nation back to the path of reason and life. If you are like us, attend this meeting along with a companion. Even better, invite other Pro-Life youth who may be interested,” YUP encouraged young pro-lifers.
The meeting is endorsed by Pro-Life public figures such as Bernie Villegas, Atty. Jemy Gatdula, Atty. James Imbong and Ms. Linda Valenzona.
Interested young participants may send their name, contact information (email and mobile number), organization they are representing and names of the people that will be accompanying them through Ms. Raisa Sarah Tan of UA&P at firstname.lastname@example.org or text/call 0915-6036245.
The meeting is slated on February 2 in Quezon City from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. (Jandel Posion)
