RH bill, prayoridad ni PNoy sa 16th Congress
PRAYORIDAD ni Pangulong Aquino sa pagbubukas ng 16th Congress ang Responsible Parenthood bill (RH bill).
“Priority siya, ‘di ba? It is a priority bill that we submitted. Unfortunately there are… It is a very contentious topic, subject that’s why debates have been ongoing in the House. We certainly would like to see the end to the debates but again, it will leave it with the legislature as to when the debates will end and there will be an up or down vote on the RH—on the Responsible Parenthood bill.
Inamin ni Sec. Lacierda na tumagal ang deliberasyon ng RH bill dahil sa debate ng mga mambabatas sa isyu.
“There have been several proponents and those who seek to question the bill itself, there are still plenty to—there are still plenty of them e. So I really don’t know the status right now of the debates. Maybe Congressman Boyet Gonzales can shed light on that because we’re not aware of what’s going on there,” ayon sa opisyal.
TANGGAP ng Malakanyang na may magra-rally sa Lunes, Hulyo 23, araw ng SONA ni Pangulong Aquino.
Ang katuwiran pa rin ni Sec. Lacierda ay palagi namang mayroong tinatawag na contra-SONA na sumusulpot sa ganitong mga event.
“I mean, that’s part of democratic free space—part of the democratic space. We will present, the President will present the SONA— state of the nation address. And whether they accept it or not, it’s up to them. But we believe that we are continuing our objective when President Aquino entered, I mean, became President. So the President will outline the entire, what… Well, the President will speak in SONA and let’s just wait for the—what his speech will cover,” ani Lacierda.
