Manny Pacquiao opposes RH Bill, says using condoms is sinful
Earlier today, Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao said he opposes the Reproductive Health Bill, reports GMANews.tv. The devout Catholic urged the public to opt for the natural family planning method, particularly abstinence.
"Dapat may pagtitiis tayo. Makasalanan yung paggamit ng condom at pagpapalaglag ng bata (We should control ourselves. Using condoms and having abortion are both sinful)," the boxing champion said at a press conference in the House of Representatives. "Magsakripisyo kayong mga lalaki. ’Yong mga babae din pala. Minsan ’yong babae pa ang nangangalabit (Men should control their urges. Women too, because sometimes it’s the woman who initiates the move)." Pacquiao added that the Catholic bible does not advise parents to limit their children to two.
The official Twitter account of GMANews.tv reported a few minutes ago that Pacquiao has been awarded the Congressional Medal of Distinction for his "latest (boxing) triumph, bringing prestige and honor to the country."
