    Georgina Hernandez On the Distribution of Condoms Issue

    Here is the full answer of Vice President Leni Robredo on the issue of distribution of condoms, dated January 14, 2017. The interview was done in Cebu:

    Q: Reaction on distribution of condoms by the administration?

    “Ako kasi dapat bahagi ito ng isang mas malaking programa. Iyong pagbibigay ng condoms hindi lang siya programa on its own. Pero isa siyang bahagi ng napakalaking programa – ang programang ito ay ang pagsabatas ng reproductive health law. Ang pagbigay niya puwede siyang maging mabuti, puwede siyang maging masama. Puwede siyang maging mabuti kung bahagi siya ng mas malaking programa na ine-educate mo ang tao bago mo binibigay. Pero ang akin iyong parang for the sake na makapagbigay lang, tingin ko delikado iyon. Delikado in a sense na baka nag-popromote tayo ng kultura ng promiscuity. Sa akin, while naniniwala tayo na kailangang masusing tingnan ang problema sa populasyon, naniniwala na tayo na ito mas education. Mas education na parang freedom of informed choice dapat. Ito ang dapat na sundan, hindi iyong basta lang mamimigay. Kasi ang accessibility sa family planning methods, it’s just one aspect.”

    To reiterate, the vice president said that the distribution of condoms should be part of a more comprehensive program in the implementation of the reproductive health law. As she supports the administration’s family planning policy, she has long pushed for a holistic package, which includes education and informed choices.
