Pro-Life Philippines issued a statement last month on the infamous Maguindanao Massacre. The statement reads:

As an organization dedicated to upholding the sanctity and dignity of all human life from conception to natural death, Pro-Life Philippines joins the rest of the Filipino people in condemning in the strongest terms the massacre of 57 innocent persons in Maguindanao. The bloody event is an outrageous affront to life, peace, and democracy.

The right to life is the most basic right and is a pre-requisite to the exercise of all other human rights as well as the organization of a peaceful and orderly society. We therefore call on the authorities to swiftly bring to justice those responsible for the massacre, no matter who they may be. The government, in cooperation with the law-abiding citizenry must put in place necessary measures to prevent similar events from occurring.

The lack of respect for life and the loss of a stable moral foundation are at the root of many of our ills. Issues such as abortion, contraception, murder, and corruption are often more related than we realize. That is why groups like Pro-Life Philippines and the Ang Kapatiran Party (which has an integrated moral and political perspective and platform) are more relevant than ever. I am humbled and privileged to be a (most unqualified) member of both of them, and I know that they are at the forefront of the battle for renewing our nation.
