These pins cost P20, and they sold out today! Together with some friends, I attended a Pro-Life event today at the St. Francis Church in Ortigas Center. We were really supposed to have a Jericho March for Life, but Ortigas traffic officials took back the permit to march just last week because of, well, traffic concerns.
Of course, that doesn't diminish the urgency of the cause. This being the last activity for Pro-Life month, people who support the right to life still gathered together to pray for and discuss about the pertinent issues regarding protecting the Filipino family. (This afternoon, by the way, UA&P has a talk on the Magna Carta of Women, a piece of legislation some groups are trying to get passed by March--a.k.a. International Women's Month. This bill takes away a person's right to invoke his/her religious beliefs as a valid reason to not submit to the bill's provisions, among other things suspiciously not pro-women at all. But more on that some other time.)
Hopefully next time, we'll really get to march. But for now, here are some pictures I took of the event. When we do get to march, am hoping to see more excellent people around! Yes? Yes!
