This May, one of the most divisive issues in society today is going to be dissected and talked about in a grand debate and the country’s first all-news and documentary channel on free TV is going to make it happen.
In line with its continuing advocacy to discuss and deliver the most pressing issues of the day, GMA News TV is mounting “Reproductive Health (RH) Bill: The Grand Debate”.
In a rare occasion, representatives from the government, religious groups and women sectors gather and engage in a healthy and informative discussion on the controversial House Bill Number 4244 or the Responsible Parenthood, Reproductive Health and Population Development Act of 2011”, otherwise known as the Reproductive Health (RH) Bill. Pitting lawmakers versus lawmakers, women versus women and church versus church, the debate will present and tackle the pros and cons of the RH Bill with representatives from opposing camps defending their side on every motion. The special aims to educate the people and satisfy their need for information.
Aside from the debate happening on the program, the public can also participate in an online debate on Twitter by sharing their opinions using the hash tags #proRH or #antiRH and by visiting www.gmanews.tv.
“RH Bill: The Grand Debate” is hosted by respected broadcast journalist Mel Tiangco and assisted by GMA News TV personalities, Pia Arcangel and RJ Ledesma, the two being former debaters in their college days.
The special airs Sunday, May 22 at 4 PM, with a replay at 9PM on GMA News TV.
