ABS-CBNNews.com reports that in a news briefing held on Wednesday, August 1, "Malacañang called on the Catholic Church to review its stand on the Reproductive Health (RH) Bill." According to the report, presidential spokesman Atty. Edwin Lacierda cited a Social Weather Stations survey, which revealed that "around 70 percent of 95 million Filipinos want Congress to pass the RH Bill." The report quoted Lacierda, who said, "We would hope that they (Catholic bishops) would consider the views of the people. They should take note of the survey (on) why there is a need for a Responsible Parenthood Bill."

 

According to the report, Lacierda emphasized that President Noynoy Aquino "had supported proposals to provide couples a choice on the methods to use in planning their family since he was a senator." To reiterate his point, Lacierda added, "When you see a mother who is only 16 and has already five or six kids and who was not given proper information on family planning, you would see the urgent need for a Responsible Parenthood Bill."
