Speaker rules out abortion, divorce


FOR the nth time, Speaker Feliciano Belmonte, Jr. has ruled out legalizing abortion or passing divorce bill into law. Belmonte, who represents Quezon City’s 4th District, made the pronouncement in light of speculations that abortion bills, divorce and even gay marriage will be tackled next by Congress since the Supreme Court has declared the Reproductive Health bill constitutional. The RH law mandates the state to provide natural and artificial family planning services to families, including condoms, pills and intrauterine devices. Likewise, it provides optional and age-appropriate sex education.
