R.H.L.: Youth

The 1987 Philippine Constitution according to Article II Section 12, recognizes the sanctity of family life, equally protecting the life of the mother and the unborn child. Section 15 reads as the State being able to promote the right to health of the people and instill health consciousness.

UP Manila has developed programs that serve as models and benchmarks of health education and healthcare in the Philippines, thus, dubbed the National Health Sciences Center.

As UP Manila students what should we do for the benefit of the Filipino people and how should we act with regards to the provisions of the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Law? Sean Vincent L. Aquilino, AY 2012-13 Academics and Research USC Councilor, and Doctor of Medicine Class 2016, shares his thoughts.


The University and National Issues Committee of the UPPhA Service League, in our aim to provide awareness to the UP College of Pharmacy and the UP Manila community, is proud to present this year's Colloquium entitled: R.H.L.: Religion, Health and Legislation.

We aim to provide relevant and up-to-date information regarding the situation of the RH Law and how this affects the conservative-liberal clashes in our Philippine society.

See you there!


R.H.L: Youth

The Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Law of 2012, signed last December 21, 2012 by President Aquino, guarantees access to methods of contraception, fertility control, sex education, and maternal care. Looking back, the law had many setbacks facing criticisms especially from the conservative Catholic Church.
The RH Law's legal battle is not yet over, currently it is under careful deliberation by the Supreme Court after 5 oral arguments ending last August 28, 2013. The law reflects the continuing conservative-liberal divide in Philippine Society.
To give light to the relevance of the RH Law for the youth, Cleve Arguelles, 30th UP Student Regent, shares his thoughts.
