Filipino president may damage his popularity with support for family-planning bill
Catholic World News - May 04, 2011
President Benigno Aquino of the Philippines may have hurt his own political standing with his aggressive support of a family-planning bill, according to a spokesman for the nation's episcopal conference.
Bishop Deogracias Iniguez, the chairman of the bishops' public-affairs committee, said that Aquino's declining polls numbers could reflect public dissatisfaction with his inflexible stand in support of the legislation, which the Catholic Church leadership has strongly opposed.
