The Sangguniang Barangay of Ayala Alabang in Muntinlupa City released an ordinance that requires, among others, pharmacies within Ayala Alabang to ask for a prescription before selling contraceptives.

The ordinance took effect yesterday, February 24. Meanwhile, some residents of the barangay are against the ordinance, “It’s a multicultural barangay with residents from other countries, and these people have different religious and cultural beliefs, which I think should be respected,” said Ayala Alabang Village resident Kevin Punzalan.
