MANILA, Philippines – Rappler’s editor at large Marites Vitug says she’s floored by arguments raised by critics of the reproductive health law before the Supreme Court.


Find out why in her video blog.

We remember Francisco Tatad in his youthful days.
He read the historic martial law order in 1972.
Recently he made another similarly unsettling declaration.
Before the Supreme Court, men and women of reason and logic the former senator likened the Reproductive Health law to “genocide.”
The law still remains on paper 4 months after Congress passed it because the Court stopped the landmark legislation.
Really, is the RH law the equivalent of Rwanda’s genocide? Is it the same as the mass killings of one tribe by another?
Is the RH law a killing machine?
I am floored.
For a writer, Tatad takes extreme liberty with words.
He is splashing drama on a cut-and-dried law where what is needed are precise understanding, clarity of thought, and sobriety.
This is Marites Vitug for Vitug Vlogs.
