The Reproductive Health Advocacy Network (RHAN) is dismayed that President Aquino did not mention the RH Bill in his SONA. He had spoken strongly on the measure twice, at UP Diliman’s commencement exercises in March and the Philippine Medical Association’s annual meeting in Davao in May. The RH Bill is also an integral part of the legislative agenda in the president’s Philippine Development Plan. Was the omission a Freudian or political slip? Ironically, he singularly and generously mentioned Catholic hierarchy officials, the same ones who make governance difficult for him—who question his integrity and threaten him with damnation and civil disobedience.
