*Book Abstract*

For decades, population has been one of the most contentious issues in the
Philippines, and its framing and reframing by different stakeholders
present various ways of interpreting whether it is a problem and what
solution is best to address it. *The RH Wars: Framing the Population and
Reproductive Health Debates* takes a systematic look at the different
frames that have been used to discuss population and reproductive health in
public discourse from both communication and political perspectives.
Different types of frame analysis were conducted on various
population-related texts that appeared in public and policy content from
1987 to 2007. By mapping out the different frames used in public and policy
discourses, the research sought to explain the persistent impasse in
population and reproductive health policy debates. It recommends message
and audience strategies in order to move forward the conversation on
population, reproductive health, and family planning. The study ends with a
discussion on the various provisions on the RH Law and its journey after it
was enacted in 2012.
