Hilario Davide on the Philippine Constitution

From Philippines’ Constitutional Framer: More People, More Glory to God:

The Philippines stands out as the only nation, besides the Vatican, to prohibit divorce.

Our constitution prohibits divorce and abortion. We are anti-divorce, anti-abortion; we are pro-life, pro-family and pro-marriage under the constitution. The right to life of the unborn from the moment of conception is in the Bill of Rights. But, unfortunately, at one time, the Philippine legislature enacted a bill providing for the implementation of the death penalty for some heinous crimes; but it was repealed much later because it reflected badly on the Philippines, especially among the Catholics.

    The RH Bill is unconstitutional, plain and simple.. Sec.12b, Art. II provides that “It (State) shall equally protect the life of the mother and the life of the unborn from conception.” RH Bill proponents need to amend this provision to get their bill passed.
