Here comes the next phase of attack on family and life.  Let us gear up for this new fight.  

images (7)Gabriela Women’s party-list group will soon refile a bill allowing divorce in the Philippines. Gabriela Party-List Rep. Luzviminda Ilagan said they will refile their divorce bill from the 15th Congress, which got stuck at the committee on the revision of codes.  In the recently-concluded 15th Congress, Gabriela filed House Bill (HB) No. 1799 or “An Act Introducing Divorce in the Philippines” which died before the House committee on revision of laws.  

Representative Ilagan vowed to refile the measure without major changes from the version that was submitted last Congress. Under the divorce bill last Congress, the measure allows those who have been separated for five years and those already legally separated for two years to apply for divorce.
