No need for RH bill – Golez

Bacolod Rep. Anthony Rolando Golez, Jr. said in a press release that there is no need to insist in making the Reproductive Health Bill into a republic act because the current administration is already taking care of family health and responsible parenting issues.

Golez said the Department of Health already has existing programs that address the concerns of those advocating for the RH Bill. If they find those programs inadequate, the DOH and the PNoy Administration is already addressing such inadequacy through putting more efforts on it, the press said.

It added that efforts to fill the inadequacies are primarily proven by the increase in budget allocation. In Republic Act No. 10147 or the General Appropriations Act for 2011, the budget of the DOH for family health and responsible parenting was only P731, 349,000.

Golez said the Executive Department is already addressing the needs for family health and responsible parenting and the Legislative Department is supporting it by approving the budget allocations being asked by the current Administration, the press release said.

“The 3rd SONA of President PNoy, for me, was all about rallying support for the government in its efforts to make the Philippines better, Golez said in the same press release.*
