Despite FDA list of non-abortifacient

Finally, the Food and Drug Administration has issued its resolution determining that 51 specific contraceptives, including two highlighted in a TRO challenge before the Supreme Court, are non-abortifacient.

Going by the April 26, 2017 SC ruling, it is our hope that the FDA resolution means the TRO on the full implementation of the RH Law is automatically lifted.

However, I am cautiously optimistic. This fight to stop those who want to derail advances in the reproductive health of Filipino via the RH Law may not yet be over.

I wish the DOH has fully complied with all the stipulations and directives of the Supreme Court in that April 2017 ruling. I also wish the DOH is ready to fight any appeal.

While the SC did say, “the TRO would be deemed lifted if the questioned drugs and devices are found not abortifacients,” the High Court also said an administrative appeal and challenge the FDA resolution could still be lodged before the Office of the President.

There is also a worrisome condition of “after compliance with due process” also in the same SC ruling.

Those against the RH Law might use this dependent clause to continue fighting the RH Law before the Supreme Court if they see their chances of appeal to Malacanang as not promising.

As one of the House Leaders, I urge the TRO proponents to finally admit defeat. The science and real facts of RH have always been against their harsh campaign adversely affecting women’s health and the health of our nation. It is time to move on and let the Department of Health fully implement the RH Law. (END)
