In the debates surrounding the passage of the Reproductive Health Bill, we have heard from politicians, bishops, priests, doctors, nurses, midwives, bloggers and activists. But most of the people involved in the discussions are male, middle to upper class, educated, Manila-based, and will not be directly affected by the passage of the RH Bill.
We asked some of Palawan’s underserved and lower-income women why the RH Bill is important to them. We wanted their opinions included in the debates since they will be directly impacted by the passage of the Bill. These are their thoughts.
