Iglesia ni Cristo, other religious groups favor RH bill

Unlike the Catholic Church, the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) has expressed support for the highly controversial Reproductive Health (RH) bill.

“We are ready to support the bills on Reproductive Health as long as there would be no immoral elements in them,” INC executive minister Eduardo Manalo said in a letter dated October 12, 2010 to Rep. Rogelio Espina, chairman of the House committee on population and family relations.

This is the first time the INC has expressed its stand on the issue.

President Benigno Aquino III had earlier said he is willing to risk excommunication from the Catholic Church in pushing for the passage of the Responsible Parenthood (RP) bill.

” There’s nothing wrong with the Catholic Church not favoring the RH bill. But opposing it, and worse, excommunicating the President? I personally believe they’re getting out of line already. If according to their belief the RH bill is immoral, then by all means, they can preach against it to their church. But not oppose it nor excommunicate the President. Perhaps they should be reminded that not every Filipino is a Roman Catholic. The government laws and bills should favor ‘all’ the Filipinos, not just any particular religious group. ”
