The Reproductive Health Bill has become quite an issue in the Philippines. Although a number of people would be in favor of the Bill, considering the fact that overpopulation is one of the problems of the country, some sectors are still against it. Despite the evident increasing number of "unplanned parenthood" in the country, some organizations and religious sects argue the moral aspects in the issue should not be overlooked. Opposing groups would even claim that promoting this bill is almost the same as “promoting promiscuity” as it would encourage a society permitting casual sex.Up to now, statesmen and clergy people still argue on whether the moral grounds outweighs the need for the bill to be passed.
