The Lawmakers were obviously pleased  on Tuesday with President Benigno Aquino III as they lauded the inclusion of the controversial Reproductive Health (RH) bill on his  list of priority measures in the Legislative-Executive Development Advisory Council (LEDAC). They believe that it reveals President’s political will.

Among  the RH bill’s main authors, Senior Deputy Majority Leader Janet Garin, lauded Aquino for his “courage” in prioritizing the controversial measure regardless of opposition from various groups, mainly the Roman Catholic Church.

Even the Gabriela Women’s party-list Rep. Luzviminda Ilagan, another RH proponent, said the inclusion of the bill in the LEDAC shows  that the Aquino administration’s main concern is to be of  service to the poor.
