Since abortion is illegal in the Philippines except to save a woman's life, and is highly stigmatized within this largely Catholic society, many women suffer the devastating effects of unsafe abortion. There are an estimated 473,000 abortions performed each year, many of which are illegal and unsafe, and which result in the hospitalization of 79,000 women.
In the Philippines, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) works to improve contraceptive use among adolescents [ I thought this is for birth control? Why involve the young and the unmarried?] and youth through peer education and outreach programs, and reduce the rate of maternal death and disability by increasing access to comprehensive and quality post-abortion services.
Since 1971, PPFA has been working with partner organizations in the Philippines to increase the provision of youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health care services, including peer counseling programs in which youths increase their awareness and encourage each other to make responsible reproductive health choices. PPFA's work also involves training doctors and mid-level providers in post-abortion care to ensure that women have access to safe and quality services. [Safe service? Post abortion care? Are they talking about taking care of women who attempted to have their babies aborted and are in the brink of death because of clandestine operations? Hey, folks, women who attempted abortion should be taken cared of if there were complications arising from the botched operation and then...sent to jail!]
PPFA's programs in the Philippines are expanding fast, with programs such as the Reproductive Health Program for Street Children and Yo! LEAD, which are dedicated to reproductive health peer education and peer leadership programs for underserved and out-of-school youth in areas like Metro Manila.
The Prevention and Management of Abortion Complications project, implemented by Likhaan — one of the country's key women's rights organizations —[ugh! they always run that line that anything that a woman wants with her body is her right. Ok, then. Immolate yourself in public, jump from a skyscraper...the authorities will not intervene? not a chance!] trains private and public health care workers to provide comprehensive post-abortion care services for women suffering from complications from unsafe abortions. [jail them!] The project also enables the provision of gender-sensitive [abortionists and gay marriage peoplpe] and rights-based quality information and services to Filipina women, and thereby serves as an important vehicle for reproductive rights advocacy in the Philippines. [how can a veiled campaign of same sex and abortion advocates got anything to do with reproductive rights?]
Be on the lookout folks!
The Devil's agents have landed on our shores!
