Public hearing on Ayala Alabang Barangay Ordinance, Saturday March 19 at 9:00 AM

Are you infuriated with Barangay Ordinance 01-2011?

Do you believe that this ordinance is a direct violation of our right to liberty, privacy, free speech, information, and reproductive health care?

If this ordinance gets passed (although it has been struck down by the Muntinlupa City council), it can be used as a model for other barangays in the Philippines to replicate.

This is not a time to be quiet.

Wear yellow to the public hearing and support the people who plan to fight this ordinance!

Let’s get our fight on!

Scheduled on Saturday, March 19 at 9:00 am is the public hearing on Ayala Alabang Barangay Ordinance No.01 Series of 2011 “An Ordinance Providing for the Safety and Protection of the Unborn Child within the Territorial Jurisdiction of Barangay Ayala Alabang; Fixing Penalties for its Violations, and, for, Other Purposes”.
