Personalities in favor and against the controversial Reproductive Health Bill (RH Bill) will go face-to-face this Sunday (May 8) for the “Harapan: RH Bill, Ipasa or Ibasura” live debate on ABS-CBN’s Sunday’s Best.
Multi-awarded news anchors Karen Davila and Julius Babao will moderate the timely event, which will offer a full-blown discussion on the issues surrounding the RH Bill such as morality, overpopulation, poverty, sex education, state intervention, and right to information.
ABS-CBN and the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC), which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, have put together a group of notable experts, legislators, and civil society leaders for this year’s very first “Harapan” debate.
Standing up against the RH Bill are Rep. Anthony Golez, Rep. Roilo Golez, Dr. Ligaya Acosta of Human Life International, Fr. Melvin Castro of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), Atty. Jo Imbong of CBCP Family and Life and former Laguna Governor Joey Lina.
On the other side, Rep. Janette Garin and Rep. Edcel Lagman, two of the authors of the RH bill, Protestant Bishop Rodrigo Tano, Carlos Celdran, former Department of Health Sec. Esperanza Cabral, Beth Angsioco, and former Akbayan Rep. Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel will rally behind the Pro RH Bill.
Through “Harapan: RH Bill, Ipasa or Ibasura,” ABS-CBN and ANC aim to shed light on this controversial bill so people may be equipped with the right information to make a stand on the issue.
