    Background: Puerto Rican women demonstrated in the streets of San Juan, Nov 6, the nation's capital, in support of an edict from the Roman Catholic Church forbidding Catholics to vote for the Popular Democratic Party in the forthcoming Gubernatorial election.

    Puerto Rican bishops have attacked the Popular Democratic Party for condoning birth control, establishing centres for sterilization, and denying religious instruction in some schools.

    In recent days opposing groups have paraded through the streets - some supporting Governor Luis Mu????oz Marin - other marching in obedience to the church.

    Approximately four-fifths of the Puerto Rican population is Roman Catholic. But despite this majority, Mu????oz Marin is expected to win re-election for a third consecutive term of office.
