Beniño Aquino says no to pro-abortion bill, yes to responsible parenthood
President Beniño Aquino announced that he no longer backs the Reproductive Health bill, which has been at the centre of a fight with Catholics.
His decision comes after he talks to the country’s bishops. In lieu of the draft bill on reproductive health, the president will propose a law that will be closer to Catholic sensibilities. Birth controls and methods of contraception will not be mentioned.
