ALFI files Petition vs. RH Law
ALFI, Alliance for the Family Foundation (Philippines), Inc. – an NGO dedicated to preserving the sanctity of life & family as well as members of its Board of Trustees, friends, their spouses, children and grandchildren, filed Wednesday, 9 January 2013 at 3:18 p.m. in the Supreme Court, a Petition for Prohibition, with request for a TRO/Preliminary Injunction against Republic Act (R.A.) No. 10354, The Responsible Parenthood & Reproductive Health Act of 2012, on the grounds that it allows the use of abortifacient devices such as the intrauterine device (IUD), and the purchase of abortifacient substances using taxpayers’ money, and thus violates the Constitutional provisions protecting life and health. RA 10354 violates right to religious freedom as it mandates health providers to provide reproductive services even if against religious convictions.
