Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

Support some groups who empower Filipino families to exercise their reproductive health rights even when the Department of Health could not.
It was around Christmas time in 2012, then President Benigno Aquino III quietly signed the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health (RH) Act into law. It was the fulfillment of Aquino’s promise to give every Filipino the RH information and services they need to plan for their families.
The passage of the RH law was the gift of the right to choose. Its triumph was the result of decades of tireless lobbying by women’s groups and grassroots leaders. But as far as victory celebrations went, it was a short-lived one.

Pope Francis extends Catholic priests' right to forgive abortion
By Tim Hume, Cristiana Moisescu and Lindsay Isaac November 21, 2016

Pope Francis has extended the powers of Catholic priests to forgive abortions, making the announcement in an apostolic letter "MISERICORDIA ET MISERA" released Monday.

E.g. extract:
It continues a special dispensation granted last year for the duration of the Year of Mercy, which finished Sunday.
"I wish to restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life. In the same way, however, I can and must state that there is no sin that God's mercy cannot reach and wipe away when it finds a repentant heart seeking to be reconciled with the Father," the letter states.
"May every priest, therefore, be a guide, support and comfort to penitents on this journey of special reconciliation," the letter continues.
"I henceforth grant to all priests, in virtue of their ministry, the faculty to absolve those who have committed the sin of procured abortion."
