She Decides Philippines

SheDecides Philippines launched on 26th April 2019.

The Importance of SheDecides

SheDecides Philippines had its vibrant open house on 29th April 2019.

This provided an opportunity for SheDecides friends and champions in the Philippines to highlight, leverage and catapult action, instill the importance of the SheDecides manifesto in the Philippines legislative agenda and became an avenue for ways of moving forward to achieve even more results for women and girls.

The following are the key priority areas of SheDecides in the Philippines: teenage pregnancy, adolescent reproductive health, comprehensive sexuality education, policy advocacy around the age of sexual consent, services: particularly demand and supply side (condom/ contraceptive use of adolescents & young people) and destigmatization of safe abortion (post-abortion care as an entry point.)

The local movement maximizes its energy and mobilizing power to bring together diverse individuals, youth, social influencers, creatives, and groups to achieve these priority issues.

Trump reinstated the “Global Gag Rule”, more formally known as the Mexico City Policy, to restrict women’s lives and deny them the freedom of choice over their own bodies. Trump did not invent this regressive policy.
