Mr. Celdran's protest was an exercise of free speech in support of reproductive health for the nation's poorest people. 

Even though Carlos Celdran’s protest may have been perceived as offensive by some, such peaceful action is protected by the right to freedom of expression, which is guaranteed under international human rights law. As a state party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the Philippines has a duty to uphold the right to freedom of expression, and ensure that its legislation does not impose unnecessary limitations to this right.
