The RH bill pending since 1998 until last night was truly a “history in the making” for women and families for every Filipinos all over the world.

The Philippine NGO Council on Population, Health and Welfare Inc. (PNGOC) lauds Congressman Edcel Lagman and all the PRO RH congresspersons who voted for its passage. PNGOC also lauds Senator Pia Cayetano and Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago and other PRO RH senators for passing the measure.
