Rosary Crusade against passage of RH Bill in the Philipines

My dear friends,

We are launching a Rosary Crusade for the Defense of God's Law on Life and Family especially for the Philippines.

The Philippines is now threatened by a proposed Reproductive Health Bill also known as the RH Bill.

This bill is a full frontal attack on the Catholic Church, its Hierarchy, its morals, its missionaries, its clergy, and its laity. This House Bill 96 attacks the Catholic Church trying to put to jail every bishop as the "responsible officer of the juridical entity" that refuses to participate in the Reproductive Health Services guaranteed by this law.

This proposed law threatens Catholic foreign missionaries and Non-Government Organization workers with jail sentence / fine and immediate deportation without further process upon the refusal to cooperate in mandatory reproductive health care service

This bill even punishes all who shall speak against the evils of contraceptives. This RH Bill wants to make the Public Health Sector anti-Catholic and hostile to morals and faith.

This bill has provisions that will send to jail or fine all doctors and health care providers who shall refuse to cooperate in "modern Methods of Family Planning" such as IUD, ligation, vasectomy, and promotion and distribution of condoms and pills and so on.

This RH Bill considers having many children a cause of poverty. On the contrary, our beloved nation the Philippines needs more good citizens, holy men and women to work hard resisting corruption, the best doctors and professionals for the country. The true solution is not to reduce the children but to educate our children well.

This bill considers pregnancy a disease and acknowledges that the contraceptives are essential medicines. Life is a gift of God.

This bill, if passed, will be the beginning of the total destruction of the morals and families in the Philippines.

We deplore this threat on our Church in the Philippines. This is why at this moment of danger, we call on all Catholics to pray the holy Rosary for the Philippines. This is why we call, we appeal to all of you to join our Rosary Crusade. Our Lady never fails us when we invoke her aid.

For this crusade, record the number of rosaries you pray daily and submit to us monthly by email, by fax, by phone, or by mail.

This crusade starts on October 31st. By January 16, 2011, feast of Sto. Niño, we want to collect one million rosaries for Our Lady.

Please help us! Please join our Rosary Crusade.

In the hearts of Jesus and Mary,
Father Thomas Onoda

One million rosaries by January 16th, 2011(feast of the Sto. Niño).
