Bishop raises RH ‘red alert’

Bacolod Bishop Vicente Navarra yesterday raised a “red alert” for the Catholic faithful in the Diocese of Bacolod to fervently pray for the conversion of the lawmakers who voted Yes to the Reproductive Health Bill in the House, so that they will vote differently when the bill is brought up on third and final reading in the House next week.

In the wee hours of Thursday, the House voted 113-104 in favor of the RH bill on second reading.

Members of the House and the Senate are expected to vote on the bill again on Monday.moremoremore

Col. Francisco Patrimonio, 302nd Infantry Brigade commander, however, said they will pursue the filing of criminal charges against the 19 alleged rebels, who were arrested Thursday at the encounter site in Sitio Mahopaho, Brgy. San Agustin, Isabela.

The Isabela encounter claimed the lives of PFCs Dennis Acosta and Oliver Grecia. Three of the four injured soldiers were identified as 2Lt. Shannon Pamitan, Sgt. Romeo Castellano and PFC Justin Esquibel, all assigned at the Alpha Company of the 11th Infantry Battalion.moremoremore
