Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) supports RH Bill

Iglesia ni Cristo or INC has expressed support for the controversial Reproductive Health (RH) Bill.

INC Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo said the bill needs to be passed as it is the “moral imperative” of every parent to guide their children and make sure they have food, shelter, clothing, and proper education. This can be done if they “plan the number of their children and keep it under control.” INC also supports artificial family planning methods as long as they do not induce abortion. INC also took a swipe at naturaly family planning saying that this method is unnatural, ineffective, and also are immoral as it deprives married couples of intimate marital relations for long, extended period of time.
