This will be followed by a whole night of prayers and testimonies, much like the prayer vigil the group held in June in the same venue on the last week of plenary debates before going on recess.

The June 6 event gathered some 3,000 attendees and had several women giving their personal testimonies of overcoming extreme hardship and experiencing healing and transformation through faith. Interpersed with the testimonies and a rousing talk about the mistaken notion of the reproductive health (RH) bill being pro-poor and pro-women were worship services including spirited singing, dancing and vocal prayers.

All are encouraged to attend the event and, more importantly, the plenary sessions in Congress to show their support to pro-life solons in opposing anti-life legislation such as House Bill 4244.

Solons yesterday resumed sessions in Congress after a month-long recess. Resumption of sessions for this year will be until Dec. 16. (CBCP for Life)
