In an effort to raise awareness on reproductive health rights and
further secure public support for the passage of the Reproductive Health Bill, members of Akbayan Party gave away free condoms to the public coinciding with this year's celebration of Valentine's Day.
In a statement, Akbayan Representative Kaka Bag-ao said her group is continuing an initiative set by the Department of Health (DoH) under then Secretary Esperanza Cabral, when it distributed condoms on Valentine's day last year as part of its campaign to curb the increasing HIV/AIDS cases in the country and to highlight its support for the proposed law on reproductive health.
"Love yourself. Love your partner. Love your family. Be safe. This is the message we want to convey to the public. The campaign to push for the passage of the RH bill is not only about securing and protecting our rights, it is also fundamentally about love," Bag-ao said.
