Re­pub­lic Act 10354, bet­ter known as the Re­spon­si­ble Par­ent­hood and Re­pro­duc­tive Health (R.H.) Law of 2012, is one of the most im­por­tant pieces of leg­is­la­tion in the coun­try. It not only seeks to ad­dress some of the Philip­pines’s most press­ing con­cerns, such as mak­ing health care and sex ed­u­ca­tion more read­ily avail­able to women of all classes, but also rec­og­nizes the im­por­tance of a woman ex­er­cis­ing her rights over her body while pro­mot­ing equal­ity among all gen­ders, classes, races, cul­tures, and re­li­gions.
