The exact figures: 113,798,224 in 2022 from its current count of 104 million this year.

“These will be the first of the many adverse effects of derailing the full implementation of the RPRH law with a temporary restraining order (TRO) by the Supreme Court (SC) still hanging in the air,” the PopCom said.

This, it noted, is aside from the expected rise in the number of mothers dying during childbirth during the same period.

Current data indicate that the maternal mortality rate in the country is at 231 per 100,000 individuals.

Back in June 2015, the SC issued twin TROs, particularly against the distribution of progesterone subdermal implant (PSI) as well as prohibiting the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from the re-registration of current contraceptive methods.

Supporters of the RH law have promptly pointed at the twin TROs as the main reason for the inability of the government to fully implement Republic Act No. 10354. – Gerard Naval
