Hundreds to join March for RH in Laguna

Contrary to claims of some clergy and Catholic leaders that Laguna is anti-RH, women leaders from various districts of Laguna will join the march aimed to show support for the highly clamored Reproductive Health (RH) bill.

The event dubbed “Laguna Speak out for RH!: A forum for the Passage of the RH Bill” aims to highlight women’s rights, including access to reproductive health services, and the importance of passing the proposed RH law.

The event will also launch the Purple Ribbon Campaign for RH in Laguna. Purple Ribbon is the symbol for growing RH movement in various communities of the country.
