REITERATING OUR STAND AGAINST DRUG ABUSE AND CAPITAL PUNISHMENT: A Statement of the Philippines Central Conference Board of Church and Society

We are not opposed to the government’s efforts to curb and eradicate the problem of illegal drugs.  But after having said that, we ought also to assert that since human beings are created in the God’s image, their lives are sacred and therefore everyone’s right to life should be respected and protected by law, divine and human, especially the life of the innocent.
