After being very vocal about her sentiments on Mocha Uson’s appointment as PCOO assistant secretary, newly crowned Binibining Pilipinas International Mariel De Leon turned to Twitter again to advocate for women’s reproductive health.
Following the calls for the Supreme Court to lift the Temporary Restraining Order that is restricting the procurement and distribution of female contraceptives in the country, Christopher de Leon and Sandy Andolong’s daughter posted a series of Tweets calling the attention of the Supreme Court.
“TRO on contraceptives. Birth control pills are slowly going away. What will you do when they’re all gone? Let’s take our bodies back,” the beauty queen said. “What about women with PCOS, acne, severe dysmenorrhea, irregular period, [et cetera]? What about our freedom of choice when it comes to family planning? What about women’s health?” her series of tweets continued.
The 23-year-old beauty queen even tagged the official Twitter account of the Supreme Court (@SCPh_PIO) to alert them to the posts.
“You’re not ‘pro life’ if you deprive women of something that’s good for our health and our future,” she said in another tweet.
