The five-point position on responsible parenthood of President Benigno S. Aquino III:
I am against abortion.
I am in favor of giving couples the right to choose how best to manage their families so that in the end, their welfare and that of their children are best served.
The State must respect each individual’s right to follow his or her conscience and religious convictions on matters and issues pertaining to the unity of the family and the sacredness of human life from conception to natural death.
In a situation where couples, especially the poor and disadvantaged ones, are in no position to make an informed judgment, the State has the responsibility to so provide.
In the range of options and information provided to couples, natural family planning and modern methods shall be presented as equally available.
