The inquirer’s headline is: “Aquino bucks Church, backs birth control” and the CBCP is more “hurt than disappointed.”
“I think the government is obligated to inform everybody of the responsibilities of their choices. At the end of the day, government might provide assistance to those who are without means if they want to employ a particular method,” Mr. Aquino said at a town hall meeting with Filipino expatriates here.
“But after saying that, I will not embark on a situation that forces couples to go one way or another,” he added, leaving to couples the choice of birth control method they want to use.
An honest to goodness reproductive health law that gives people knowledge about their options is a good thing.
