TARLAC, Philippines—The “Team Patay/Team Buhay” posters have reached many provinces and Tarlac is no different as its San Sebastian Cathedral also greets churchgoers with its own such posters.
Draped on its facade are three posters, one which lists Team Buhay composed of San Juan Representative Joseph Victor Estrada, Senator Gregorio Honasan, Zambales Representative Milagros Magsaysay, Senator Aquilino Pimentel III, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, former Las Piñas Representative Cynthia Villar, Lito David, Llasos Marwil and JC delos Reyes.
It also includes Buhay, 1-Sagip, Ang Prolife and Pacyaw partylists.
The other poster lists senatorial candidates whom the church has deemed to be pro-Reproductive Health or pro-divorce: Aurora Representative Juan Edgardo Angara, Bayan Muna Representative Teodoro Casiño, Paolo Benigno Aquino IV, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, Cagayan Representative Jack Enrile, Risa Hontiveros, Senator Francis Escudero, Senator Loren Legarda, and former Senator Jamby Madrigal; including Gabriela, Akbayan, Bayan Muna and Anakpawis partylists.
The poster above the cathedral’s entrance reads: Vote as God the author of life would wish you to vote. Vote to protect family and life.
