MANILA, Philippines—The reproductive health bill is one of 12 priority bills that President Benigno Aquino III will be presenting to Congress for approval this year.

Mr. Aquino Wednesday said that the reproductive health bill, which he prefers to call the “responsible parenthood” bill, was one of the measures that he discussed with the Cabinet at a seven-hour meeting on Tuesday to firm up the administration’s legislative agenda for presentation to congressional leaders at the end of the month.

He said he wanted the features of the reproductive health bill to include the provisions agreed earlier between the Palace and the Catholic Church, such as one that says that information on family planning methods will not be forced on people and that “there will be sanctions if this was done.”

“And maybe we might also set up natural family planning centers, apart from the other methods to be done by the Department of Health,” Mr. Aquino told reporters.
