HLI urges Philippines president to resist population-control pressure
February 03, 2011
Human Life International (HLI) is organizing public demonstrations in the Philippines urging President Benigno Aquino to resist demands for aggressive population-control policies.
“The Aquino government has already received more than 900 million dollars from agencies like USAID, UNFPA and others that press rigid population control policies, and that makes it difficult for him to move backwards,” notes Rene Bullecer, the HLI director in the Philippines. The pro-life group is organizing prayer vigils, processions, and public discussions to call attention to need for “family and demographic policies that will fully respect the value of human life.”
