#TalkThursday: RH Bill and the future

Maria Ressa talks to Senator Pia Cayetano on the progress of the RH Bill in this edition of #TalkThursday

MANILA, Philippines – In this week’s edition of #TalkThursday, Maria Ressa talks to Senator Pia Cayetano about the Reproductive Health bill and how it is moving forward in the legislative process.

Cayetano, along with Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, are the two proponents of Senate Bill 2865 or the Reproductive Health act of 2011. They are hopeful that both houses of Congress will finally vote on it this year, most likely in August. 

The bill encourages government support for all forms of contraceptives as well as a nationwide education campaign in reproductive health.
