Risa Refiles Absolute Divorce Bill: Senator Risa Hontiveros tells reporters during the Kapihan sa Senado, Wednesday, July 10, 2019, that she has refiled a bill legalizing divorce in the Philippines. “While the state continues to recognize the sanctity of family life, it is also duty bound to promote and protect the well-being of its citizens. It is a duty that should extend to circumstances whereby this well-being is being compromised by the inability to break free from irremediably broken marriages and start anew in healthier family and living arrangements,” she said.
