Princess Manzon: Ex-PBB Housemate Supports Young People for RH

Princess Manzon backs young people for RH 


Princess Manzon, former housemate of the hit reality TV show Pinoy Big Brother openly expressed her support to all young people supporting and advocating the much debated Reproductive Health Bill. Like Dingdong Dantes, Princes is one of the celebrities who are openly supporting the bill and is helping out initiatives to encourage others to do so as well. 

For her, it is but necessary that young people be empowered through correct information and education so that they may choose what is right for them and to protect them from early sex, unwanted pregnancies, sexually-transmitted infections and even clandestine abortions.

This year, the Youth Consortium for Reproductive Health - a national network of different youth-led organizations came up with an online campaign for young people called iProtect Campaign. This online campaign made use of social media to spread its messages to the young people.

iProtect Campaign bore the following messages:

iProtect My Future: by protecting and prioritizing goals one would achieve finishing school enabling him/her to land a good job for him/her self and his/her family.

iProtect My Loved Ones: by protecting one's self from unprotected sex & being responsible, one ensures that his or her loved ones are respected and maintaining a status of integrity to the self, family and others.

iProtect My Body: by protecting one's body is ensuring one's dignity and self worth. 

iProtect My Health: by encouraging other young people to live a healthy and protected lifestyle and by nurturing a well & responsive health-seeking behavior.

iProtect My Mind: by protecting your self from illegal substances that pollutes one's mind, one maintains a clear mind & healthy body.

iProtect My Rights: by keeping one's self informed of pertinent issues that would affect young people, one protects his or her rights and in protecting & safeguarding it.

iProtect My Society: by loving one's self, one ensures that his family, community & the society are protected, respected and is harmoniously co-existing. Young people's roles in nation-building is very important.
