Condoms in Davao

THE Catholic Church on Thursday denounced moves by the Davao City government, led by the Duterte political clan, to buy condoms and other contraceptives and distribute them to communities under a local version of the reproductive health bill.

“We will counter any government official pushing for the passage of a city ordinance allowing the distribution of condoms and other contraceptives,” said Surigao del Sur Bishop Nereo Odchimar, president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines.
“We will tell people not to obey them.”

The bishops oppose the reproductive health bill being debated in the House of Representatives, which would establish a national policy on population management and institute a program of sex education in schools.
