Have you read the Reproductive Health bill?
The Reproductive Health Bill has passed the Committee level and has been consolidated. This is good news but this will still be deliberated at the Plenary.
The measure, entitled “An Act Providing for a Comprehensive Policy on Responsible Parenthood, Reproductive Health and Population and Development,” is a consolidation of the bills filed by the following lawmakers: House Minority Leader Edcel Lagman, Iloilo Rep. Janette Garin, Muntinlupa City Rep. Rodolfo Biazon, Iloilo Rep. Augusto Syjuco Jr., Akbayan party-list Reps. Arlene Bag-ao and Walden Bello, and Gabriela party-list Reps. Luzviminda Ilagan and Emerenciana de Jesus.
The committee will prepare a report on its approval of the consolidated bill and will submit this report to the House Committees on Rules and Appropriations, after which the measure will be presented in the plenary, where lawmakers will discuss and vote on the measure on the floor.
Once the chamber approves the measure, it will submit the bill to the Senate for consideration. The Senate can either pass its own version of the bill or adopt the bill passed by the House.
After this, the bicameral conference committee will be convened to reconcile the respective versions of the House and Senate. Once the bicameral committee approves the bill, it will be returned to the House and Senate for approval and third reading. Then it will be submitted to Malacañang for the signature of the President. —
