RESPONSIBLE
PARENTHOOD
The Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act of 2012 (R. A No.
10354) informally known as the Reproductive Health Law or RH Law, is a law in the
Philippines which guarantees universal access to methods on contraception,
fertility control, sex education, and maternal care.
The bill mandates the government to promote without biases, all effective,
natural, and modern methods of family planning that are medically safe and legal.
Although abortion is recognized as illegal and punishable by law, the bill states
that “the government shall ensure that all women needing care for post-abortion
complications shall be treated and counseled in a humane, non-judgmental, and
compassionate manner.”
The bill calls “multi-dimensional approach” which integrates a component of
family planning and responsible parenthood into all government anti-poverty
programs. Age-appropriate reproductive health and sexuality education is required
from grade four to fourth year high school using “life-skills and other approaches.”
The bill also mandate DOLE to guaranteed the reproductive health of its
female employees. Companies with fewer 200 workers are required to enter into
partnership with health care providers in their area for the delivery of reproductive
health services. Whereas, companies with more than 200 workers shall provide
reproductive health services to all employees in their own respective health
facilities.
The national government and local government will ensure the availability of
reproductive health care services like family planning and prenatal care. Any
person or public official who prohibits ore restricts of legal and medically-safe
reproductive health services shall be held liable.
