We all seek to preserve, not destroy life, by making it less difficult for the poor, our women, and their children to access health services.

This was the statement of reelectionist Sen. Loren Legarda as she thanked the Purple Ribbon for RH for endorsing her candidacy along with selected senatorial candidates.

"Experience has shown that we cannot always agree on every issue. That is part of a thriving democracy. I am certain, however, that as Filipinos, we all share the desire to make democracy work in favor of those who have lesser in life," Legarda said.

She said she remains committed to the cause of women's rights, including freedom from violence, quality healthcare, education, and access to jobs. "I look forward to continue working with you on these issues," she added.

Legarda is credited with passing laws to protect the rights of women and promote their welfare such as the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act, the Magna Carta of Women, and the Expanded Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act.

Purple Ribbon for RH is made up of supporters of the RH law, including NGOs, civil groups, business groups, former government officials, private institutions, youth, writers, artists, and celebrities.
