The Catholic for RH Speak Out! Movement is a fellowship of concerned individual Catholics who believe that Reproductive Health is a right.
Well-meaning individuals coming from the following organizations like Leadership Development for Mobilizing Reproductive Health (LDM), The Forum for Family Planning and Development, and Leadership for Empowerment, Advocacy and Development Network (LEADNet), Health Action Information Network (HAIN) volunteered to organize the movement.
The mission of the movement is to "bring Catholics into full harmony with their faith and realize that there is no dissonance with their being Catholic and simultaneously believing in the advocacy and goals of reproductive health and rights."
A Core of Catholics serves as the team behind the implementation of the activities concerning the movement. For information and concerns related to the movement you may contact LEADNet or the Forum for Family Planning and Development, Inc. LEADNet is currently the Secretariat and holds office at:

The Movement calls on fellow individual Catholics to join, speak out, and show support for reproductive health in general and the passage of the reproductive health bill in particular. There is a need now to raise our collective Catholic voices for the RH bill to be passed, to raise awareness on the importance of reproductive health, and to reclaim the Catholic manifestations of social justice and human rights, respect for freedom and self-determination, and affirmation of love and compassion.
