Jejomar Binay is both pro-life and pro-choice in RH Bill issue

( Vice President Jejomar Binay said he is both pro-life and pro-choice in the Reproductive Health (RH) Bill issue, reported yesterday.

Binay sees nothing wrong with using condoms because "there’s no abortion" and it is "just prevention." However, he is against abortion and "abortifacient" pills. According to, he supports women’s freedom of choice as long as they do not "cross the line to abortion."

Asked what he thinks of birth control pills, he said, "Those abortifacient ones should not be allowed. Those drugs will cause abortion. But those only used for prevention (are fine) because there’s no life involved yet." He added, "My position is consistent. As long as there is life, even for one second, that’s abortion already. That’s not right anymore."
