MANILA, June 15, 2011?The Reproductive Health (RH) Bill and how it goes against Filipino values will be the focus of a talk at St. Paul University in San Miguel, Bulacan, on June 16 at 10:00-12:00 noon.
â€œ[The RH bill] undermines Filipino values such as bayanihan, family-centeredness, God-centeredness, respect, hospitality,â€ says Filipinos for Lifeâ€™s Noel G. Bernardo, one of the speakers at the activity.
