Rep. Edcel C. Lagman: Resolving the “gray areas” consequent to the Supreme Court Decision on the Reproductive Health Law


“The RH advocacy is a continuing crusade – from the epic 13-year struggle for the enactment of an RH Law to the one-year confrontation to surmount the constitutional challenge before the Supreme Court, and now the mission of achieving the full and expeditious implementation of the celebrated RH Law.

“We must never rest on our laurels. One victory deserves another. The triumphant march must go on.

“Today, we celebrate one signal victory: the first year anniversary of the adjudication by the Supreme Court that the Reproductive Health Law is on the whole constitutional.”
