Journalist Raissa Robles, via her blog on ABS-CBNNews.com, points out that Senator Tito Sotto was able to crack jokes about family planning just a couple of years after his son died. Sotto had alleged that contraceptive pills had caused his late son to have a heart defect.
Robles’ post, titled "Sen. Sotto endorsed family planning two years after the death of his son" is in the form of a letter addressed to Sotto. Robles gives credit to one of her followers for digging up a YouTube upload (see the video embedded on this page) of the humorous album, Tough Hits, that Sotto had made with his brother Vic Sotto and fellow comedian Joey de Leon. The Tough Hits segment was dubbed "The Family Planning Department." Below are Robles’ words:
Dear Senator Sotto,
Despite the fact that your first son died on August 13, 1975, allegedly because your wife took contraceptives, here you are some two years after that not only singing praises of contraceptives but also wholehearetedly endorsing their use in family planning in a hit record album you recorded together with your brother and friend.
Thank you @Bayonic for finding this and explaining your gem-of-a-find in this manner.
Robles then embedded the said video (se video also embedded on this page" and emphasized: "This was from their Tough Hits album which came out in 1977 or two years after the claimed death of his son from alleged complications from contraceptives."
