QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau)- Outgoing Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo issued a very strong statement following the U.S. Supreme Court’s overturn of the landmark 1973 Federal abortion rights ruling, Roe vs. Wade.
In a statement issued by the Office of the Vice President, Robredo said:
“It is every woman’s right to row a boat and wade in the waters. These are inalienable rights. I applaud the U.S. Supreme Court decision and hope this puts a stop to possible similar laws or rulings in the Philippines. Mabuhay ang mga kababaihan!”
