"I know of only two guys, presidents, who did it and it was (Fidel) Ramos who was a Protestant, and ako na talagang pinipilit ko sa aking siyudad ang land reform," he told agrarian reform beneficiaries.

Then President Fidel V. Ramos emphasized reproductive health and human rights as a policy framework for the implementation of family planning programs.
