SURIGAO CITY, Dis. 4 (PIA) – Si Pangulong Benigno S. Aquino III mipadayag sa iyang suporta sa Responsible Parenthood Bill bisan pa sa iyang pag-ingon nga ang mga lideres ug magbabalaod sa nasod ang adunay katungod aron mohimo og maayong posible nga mga sumbanan alang sa kaugmaon sa mga kabataan, matud sa opisyales sa Palasyo kagahapon.

"The President met today with members of the House of Representatives to discuss the Responsible Parenthood Bill. The President began his remarks by telling the gathered representatives that, if he were still a member of the House, he would vote for the Responsible Parenthood Bill," si Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda nagkanayon sa iyang pamahayag nga gipagawas kagahapon.

Matud ni Lacierda nga ang Pangulo “shared with the gathered congressman the discernment that led to his taking this position.”

Atol sa iyang pakigtagbo sa mga magbabalaod didto sa Palasyo sa MalacaƱang kagahapon, matud pa ni Lacierda, nga ang Pangulo mipasabot nga kinahanglan sa dili madugay lihukon gyud sa House of Representatives ang nakapending nga maong balaodnon.

"He suggested that a week should be adequate time to consider amendments that genuinely improve the bill—in contrast to “killer amendments”—and that at the end of that period, it is incumbent on representatives to vote," dugang pagpasabot ni Lacierda.

"There are material issues that we need to address—and we must address them in conscience, the President said. He further told the lawmakers that we are taught that our conscience is the ultimate arbiter of right and wrong—and that at the end of the day, we will all be asked: What did you do to the least of your brethren?," matud ni Lacierda.
