Anti-abortion group stages demo in Oro

Correspondent . 

ANTI-ABORTION demonstrators took to the streets on Saturday morning to dramatize their call for the Duterte administration to reject a bill that seeks to legalize abortion in the country.

Dubbed as “Walk for Life,” some 5,000 Roman Catholics marched from the Press Freedom Monument to the St. Augustine Cathedral.

The march was organized by the Council of Lay Ecclesiastical Movement of the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro (Clemoaca) which is headed by Archbishop Antonio Ledesma SJ.

Lawyer Proculo Sarmen, “Walk of Life” chairman for the city, said the demonstration was simultaneously conducted in Luzon, Visayas and in Mindanao.

“Atong gipakita nga supak kita sa abortion, death penalty ug sa tanang mga bala-od nga gusto ipapasar sa Kongreso sama sa same-sex marriage, RH bill ug uban pa,” Sarmen said.
