Even while ‘couple’ is said to be the primary target of the RH Bill, the term has not yet been disaggregated. Common understanding is that ‘couple’ is a pair of male and female. But increasingly now, ‘couple’ could mean female-female, male-male, and transgender and male. These couples have each distinct reproductive health needs.
In it’s comprehensive meaning, reproductive health covers these couples. Unfortunately, it is not made a salient part of the Bill. Where is the LGBT community? They’re not heard enough in the ongoing debate.
