List of Pro-Life and Anti-Life Bills Filed in the 16th Congress

Below is an initial list of the anti-life and pro-life bills that have been presented so far in the lower house. This was given to us by one of our allies in congress. We ask that you take time to read and study each one in order for you to have a grasp on how these bills, if passed into law, will affect us as a God-fearing nation.

Both our pro-life and anti-life congressmen have drawn the battle lines. There are fronts which we have to defend, but overall we must not rest on our laurels and be on the defensive just like the previous years. We have to take the initiative, to take the fight to them, so to speak, in order for our voices to be heard and for our bills to have a shot at being passed.

On this note, our tasks for the coming months are clear:

  • To  study these bills, analyze them, scrutinize them, and to make position papers which we could pass to our congressmen in aid of legislation;
  • To continue our mandate of educating society not only about our advocacy but about the clear and present danger the anti-life bills are bringing to our nation;
  • And to take to social and mass media to spread awareness about these bills, both the pro-life and anti-life ones, so that more people may realize the enormity and gravity of our present situation, and how they can support our pro-life congressmen and their bills to build our nation.

You may download these bills at www.congress.gov.ph

  1. Sr. Athens says:

    There is no instant solution to poverty. RH law causes more misery; their claims are based on false premises. I hope that my countrymen & women will wake-up!

  2. Bernie says:

    It’s great to know that the lawmakers who spoke out for life in the previous Congress still continue to do so. One wishes that Mark Villar were more like his parents.
