“Of course, I support it,” Mr. SyCip said during a Financial Executives of the Philippines’ (FINEX) membership meeting, adding that the Philippines’ being a predominantly Catholic country should not be the only consideration.

“Other Catholic countries, France, Italy and Spain, are all using condoms and contraceptives,” Mr. SyCip said.

The RH Bill — tagged as a priority by the Aquino administration and rejected by the Catholic Church and religious groups — is pending second reading approval in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Business groups such as FINEX back its approval. — KAM
