More Ateneo profs endorse RH Bill

InterAksyon.com
The online news portal of TV5

More faculty members of the Ateneo de Manila University have signed on to a statement in support of House Bill 4244, or The Responsible Parenthood, Reproductive Health and Population and Development Bill.

Thirty-three professors added their names to the statement, again stressing that they took their position as individuals, and that they are "in no way speaking for the Ateneo de Manila University, the Society of Jesus, or the rest of their colleagues."

In updating its list of signatories, Prof. Marita Concepcion Castro Guevara, on behalf of the other signatories, said they had taken out one name erroneously included in the original list of statement endorsers.

"One name was included in error," Prof. Guevara said. "We apologize to Mr. Arturo A. Valencia for including his name, as he has not indicated any intention to support the RH Bill. We further apologize for whatever misperception and misunderstanding this may have caused to the person of Mr. Valencia and to the organizations to which he belongs."

In all, with Mr. Valencia's name taken out, and with the 33 additional endorsers, 192 of Ateneo's faculty members have now signed the statement, which InterAksyon.com had published earlier here.

The updated signatories list now reads as follows:
