Written by Dr. Marilen Danguilan, The RH Bill Story: Contentions and Compromises chronicles the 11-year journey of the reproductive health bill as it passed through the legislative mill of various Congresses. It also documents how the country’s population policies evolved under past administrations until the bill was finally signed into law by then President Benigno Aquino on December 21, 2012. But beyond policymaking and legislation, the book tells the collective stories of the bill’s supporters and adversaries as they tried to influence the discourse on RH to favor their opposing views and agenda.
