Philippines: SC: RH law constitutional
The Supreme Court upheld on April 9 the constitutionality of the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act of 2012 but nullified some of its provisions. “The Court, after scrutiny of the various arguments and contentions of the parties…unanimously held that Republic Act No. 10354 is not unconstitutional,” high court’s Information Chief Theodore Te said, announcing a ruling that struck down more than a dozen petitions against Republic Act No. 10354 by church groups.
