A Repost From SPOT

Jinkee Pacquiao admitted to using birth control pills in article published January

(SPOT.ph) A few minutes after anti-Reproductive Health (RH) Bill advocate Manny Pacquiao said in a live interview yesterday that he and his wife Jinkee practice abstinence, an article published in January, in which Jinkee admitted to using contraceptive pills, resurfaced, reports GMA News Online.

On State of the Nation yesterday, the Sarangani congressman compared practicing abstinence to boxing, saying the act requires self-discipline. After the interview, pro-RH Bill group Filipino Free Thinkers Tweeted a link to a Philippine Star story, reports GMA News Online. In the article published January 30, the boxer's wife was quoted as saying, "Hindi pa ako nagpa-tali, pero nagpi-pills ako (ngayon)." ("No ligation, but I do take birth control pills.")

In the article, Jinkee also said she told her husband that four children are enough. However, the boxing champion said yesterday that they will have another child after Queenie, their youngest.

According to GMA News Online, the Filipino Free Thinkers also Tweeted, "If @MannyPacquiao makes a statement that Jinkee will no longer use the pill, it will show how anti women the anti #RHBill are."

Today, Pacquiao will discuss the RH Bill with members of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), reports GMA News Online. "This is his personal way of expressing support and not a celebrity endorsing the position of the Church. It is his personal initiative to be with the Church in the advocacy against RH because of his religious conviction," CBCP Secretary General Juanito Figura said in a statement.
