Family Code Of The Philippines Tagalog Version Pdf
despite the legal prohibition on abortion, the philippines has a mixed abortion policy. the government actively supports womens reproductive health, providing state-funded contraception and family planning services to women through a network of public and private hospitals and health care centers. government support for contraceptives is particularly strong: in 2009, government sources provided more than half of contraceptive supplies received by filipino women, including condoms, pills and iuds. 7 government hospitals and clinics also provide safe abortion care for women who have an unsafe abortion and who either have a desire to terminate the pregnancy or have already completed a pregnancy that is considered to be an unwanted one. however, a significant percentage of the clinics and hospitals that provide abortion care report unmet demand for safe abortion services. 5 this can be attributed to the poor quality of the services that are available, the stigmatization of women who have an abortion, and the lack of support from the health care system. when health care providers are unable to provide sufficient services, women seeking safe abortion care may be forced to seek it elsewhere, or may be forced to return to their local health facility with complications. as a result, the incidence of complications from unsafe abortion is likely to increase, particularly among younger women, who are less likely to seek care in public facilities.
