Dingdong Dantes is pro-RH but is against abortion
(SPOT.ph) Actor Dingdong Dantes said he supports the Reproductive Health bill but is against abortion, reports Manila Bulletin. He added that the bill is aimed at educating people and would also aid Filipinos with family planning.
"I’m really more for the bill’s educational side which is for everyone and not just for women. There’s awareness of sexuality. There’s awareness of what can happen," said Dantes, putting emphasis on the informative aspect of the bill.
In the report, Dantes also said that while the bill educates people of alternatives, he is definitely against abortion. "I’m a Roman Catholic and I practice what’s expected." Dantes added that reproductive health still boils down to responsible parents and responsible teachers.
Dantes, who is unmarried and childless, was also asked about his own sexual practice. "I don’t want to go [get] there. But I think I’m very safe," he said.
