The Department of Health (DOH) is now ready to implement the reproductive health (RH) law even as several pro-RH law groups are asking the Supreme Court to restore the penal provisions it struck down when it declared the law legal.

Neither toothless nor Pyrrhic. This was how the principal author of the reproductive health (RH) law described the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the constitutionality of the law, but striking down eight provisions partially or in full.
The Supreme Court ruling that declares the reproductive health law as constitutional has not deterred the spirit of the Visayas-based pro-life advocates who vowed to continue fighting the law, which they have described as “immoral.”

Now that the Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of the much-debated Republic Act No. 10354 or the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act of 2012 (RH law), the government is gearing to implement the measure sans any legal impediment.
Apparently more Filipinos agree that the much vilified Reproductive Health law should be deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court, if the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey is to be believed.
