#Vote4RH: Various sectors urging Congress to immediately deliberate & vote on the #RHBill
March 2, 2012
This is a press statement from Philippine NGO Council on Population, Health and Welfare Inc.
Manila, March 2, 2012 – Dr. Eden R. Divinagracia, Executive Director of the Philippine NGO Council on Population, Health and Welfare Inc. (PNGOC), said “PNGOC together with various organizations/sectors which include the Interfaith Group, POPCOM and the Reproductive Health Advocacy Network (RHAN) and RH advocates are calling on Congress to deliberate and put the bill into voting now and not later. Senators and congresspersons should show their full support to the RH bill to manifestly express their political will.”
According to a report of the DOH-CHD NCR published in Philippine Daily Inquirer, February 18, 2012, there were 50 maternal deaths recorded in January 2012 in NCR and these deaths were caused by insufficient reproductive health information and services needed in preventing and responding to such complications.
PNGOC believes that having an RH bill passed into law would have supported comprehensive programs and services including sexuality education; family planning; post abortion care; treatment of common gynecologic problems such as reproductive tract infections; HIV-AIDS and cancers; sexual health and maternal and child health.
PNGOC is a national umbrella network of 97 member NGOs that believes that NOW is the right time for the passage of a Reproductive Health, Responsible Parenthood, and Population Development policy to recognize the needs of our women, children and families.
Dear Legislators, Vote Positively for the Reproductive Health Bill NOW!
