Pacquiao debate on RH bill

When Pacquiao went home to Philippines after the fight with Mosley , he was scheduled  to fight another opponent and this was the start of his fight against  Poverty. And since the church knows that Manny Pacquiao is a religious person he became the symbol of opposition to the RH bill . He also “debate d” the author of the RH bill in Congress.

RH bill is a law that is now being discussed in Congress of the Philippines and will be passed for approval or denial of the lawmakers in the Philippines. The Reproductive Health bill, popularly known as the RH bill, is a Philippine bill aiming to guarantee universal access to methods and information on birth control and maternal care. The bill has become the center of a contentious national debate. There are presently two bills with the same goals: House Bill No. 4244 or An Act Providing for a Comprehensive Policy on Responsible Parenthood, Reproductive Health, and Population and Development, and For Other Purposes introduced by Albay 1st districtRepresentative Edcel Lagman, and Senate Bill No. 2378 or the Reproductive Health Act introduced by Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago.

Debate on the Rh bill is really a controversial issue because the church is against the passing of the RH Bill , the church stands on the position of pro-life  meaning that RH bill would be against life of the unborn child.
I know Pacquiao would be pro-life or pro church position because he is religious and believes God is guiding him and helping him with his fight. Lucky for Pacquiao but there are a lot of filipinos living on the poverty line about 40% of the population and if the population would not be controlled through this RH Bill,  Philippines would not address the many mouths to feed without a law to control or minimize the growth of millions filipinos.
I don’t think he’s being the champion on boxing , would turn the beliefs of those pro RH Bill , he maybe good in boxing but not on population control .
