I believe that we need to use taxpayers money to educate people on responsible parenthood than reproductive health, funding this RH Bill will bypass those highly needed medical / wellness / food programs. Access to contraceptives will trigger more abortion because it implies that babies are unwanted. I read from Harvard School Journal that when you allow people to have access on contraceptives/condoms,the more it set one's mind that they're doing it safe, the more they will engage into more risky sex which can lead to cervical/breast cancer because of constant use of oral contraceptives. It may cause to more pre-marital sex which can harm one's health in the process. You cannot control something that's about personal practices/beliefs. The solution should be more jobs / opportunities / better education, that poverty in the Philippines will not be blamed to population growth.
