Bishops willing to go to jail to stop immoral laws

No, not the US bishops. (Wouldn't that be something though?) The Filipino bishops have announced a "civil disobedience" campaign against proposed reproductive health laws.

In short, these bishops are willing to go to prison in order to stop a law that will allow sale of abortifacient contraceptives, family planning programs in schools and deny conscience protection for health-care workers.

Now that's some holy backbone.
