MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Jejomar Binay is confident that the Supreme Court’s decision, declaring the Reproductive Health (RH) law constitutional, will now put to rest the issue that has been dividing the country.

“The Supreme Court decision on the Reproductive Health (RH) Law addressed the contentious issues squarely,” Binay said in a statement on Wednesday.

He said the ruling did not only recognize and uphold the right of women to choose, but it also defined the role of government, and allayed the concerns of religious groups.

“Now that the highest court has spoken, I am confident that we can all put this divisive issue behind us,” Binay said.
