Reproductive Health and Responsible Parenthood

Reproductive Health Bill is not about sex, religion, condoms and pills.With many of the RH Bill’s provisions sparking controversy and debate, only certain elements of reproductive health are emphasized by critics, such as the moral issue on contraceptives, while the rest are largely ignored.

On January 20, President Aquino ordered his Cabinet to draft the bill based on the RH bills filed in Congress and the suggestions of the religious sector.

The draft will be presented to the President on Friday for his approval.

“So we changed that RH Bill, we renamed it (responsible parenthood bill) and then ‘yung details naman ‘non is…the only guideline that the President made was dapat ma-consider ‘yung mga suggestions ng mga religious sectors on this,” Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr. said in an interview over state-run Radyo ng Bayan on Thursday.

Aquino will be presenting the RP bill, together with 11 other priority bills he will choose, to the Legislative-Executive Development Advisory Council (LEDAC) he will convene later this month.
