No lifting of TRO on contraceptive implants, says SC

The Supreme Court has denied the government’s request to lift the restraining order on the procurement, selling, distributing, dispensing,  administering and promoting contraceptive implants.
A restraining order was issued in July last year by the high court’s second division following a petition filed by the Alliance for the Family Foundation Philippines Inc. (Alfi) who claimed that the Department of Health’s (DOH) implemented Republic Act 10354 or the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act of 2012 (RH Law) disregarded due process and considered a grave abuse of discretion.
