Bagong Benilde Party is a socio-political organization in De La Salle- College of Saint Benilde which aims to establish social justice and student involvement via principled leadership towards the integration of CSB with our nation’s society. We fulfil our mission by empowering political consciousness and societal participation, emphasizing democratic governance, student involvement and social justice, and eradicating of all discrimination based on gender, sexuality, religion and ethnicity. The passing of RH bill last December 21, 2012 and became Republic Act 10354 also known as Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act of 2012. RH Law guarantees universal access to methods of contraception, fertility control, sexual education, and maternal care. Shortly after the implementation of the RH Law, the Supreme Court issued a status quo ante order which delays its implementation for 120 days. As a part of a greater society, Bagong Benilde Party exercises its freedom of expression and involvement in various issues that greatly concerns not just the students but all the Filipinos across the globe. Today, we make a stand: BBP supports the upholding of RH Law.

BBP sees and believes the importance of RH Law on the following aspects; First is to improve the quality of health services and its accessibility to everyone for this will give the Filipinos the chance to plan a family and to access contraceptives and proper medications if needed. Second, to provide sex education for the Filipino youth in order for them to gain awareness and further understand the consequences and responsibilities of being a parent. Lastly, promoting safe sex which will provide proper information regarding the use of contraceptives and most importantly to prevent the spread of diseases specifically HIV/AIDS.

The Party recognizes the importance of RH Law in enhancing the quality of life of the Filipinos. It is now time to take bigger steps towards progress. The Philippines is only at its first step towards the change that we are all waiting for. BBP, together with the people, looks forward to the proper execution and implementation of the RH Law in the future.
