Philstar.com reports that Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Dr. Enrique Ona-during the 105th PMA annual convention last Wednesday, May 16-asked the Philippine Medical Association (PMA) to back the Responsible Parenthood bill.

 

The report quoted Ona, who told the group: "Another bill that I would like all of us to support is HB 4244 or the Responsible Parenthood Bill, which I know some are not in favor of. I believe that families, especially the very poor, should be empowered to decide on their family size. It is just giving mothers the power to decide the size of their family."

 

According to the report, Ona further pointed out that "around 2.2 million Filipino mothers "have an unmet need for family planning."
