Ligaya Acosta, PhD, Regional Director for Asia and Oceania
...
Dr. Ligaya Acosta is the regional director of Asia and Oceania at Human Life International. She worked as a loyal government employee for the Philippine Department of Health (DOH) for more than 28 years and was an avid promoter of contraceptives and a firm believer in population control. For more than 15 years, she also served as Information-Education and Communication (IEC) Manager and as a trainer for AIDS/STDs for the same office, actively advocating the use of condoms - even to high school students. With a Doctorate in Management, and Bachelor Degrees in Law and Social Work, she was well qualified for her high government post.
Her life was to change, however, after she was appointed by the government as Program Manager to oversee Natural Family Planning in the Philippines in early 2004. During her tenure with this program, she discovered the deadly deception of the international pro-death propaganda. To verify the authenticity of what she began to learn, she did extensive research that included acquiring dramatic first-hand testimonies of frontline public health workers (midwives, nurses, and doctors), and from the victims themselves. After nearly 3 decades as an avid promoter of contraceptives and population control, Dr. Acosta made a 180-degree turn and became a staunch pro-life advocate and activist.
After her amazing conversion in 2004 (which she attributes in part to the reference materials that HLI provided her), Dr. Acosta undertook impassioned work to defend human life, faith, marriage and the family, and to expose the deadly deception of the culture of death that she knew all too well. She left her job and high-paying consultancies in February 2005, to make an explosive exposé which caught national attention and occupied prominent space in Philippine media for a good period of time.
Dr. Acosta, is a multi-awarded individual, including receipt of the "Most Outstanding Public Servant in the field of Public Information" achieved while still in government service and, interestingly, a Certificate of Commendation signed by the Secretary of Health, the Philippine Directors of USAID and Helen Keller International (HKI) in "recognition of her commitment and dedication" for a joint DOH-USAID-HKI project! In February 2006 her Archdiocese awarded her a Plaque of Recognition "in grateful recognition for invaluable services rendered in defense, protection and promotion of human life in all its stages, from conception to natural death, and in upholding the sanctity of human sexuality even at the expense of one's career and financial gain."
In 2007, Dr. Acosta joined the HLI team, and since then she has done extensive activism work all over the Asian region. She resides in the Philippines.

Group expounds dangers of Ligtas Buntis program
www.thefreeman.com, 1 Mar 2005 [cached]
Former Department of Health regional information officer, Dr. Ligaya Acosta, said the program is "disastrous" to the health of its clients and to the nation.
Acosta, who worked with the DOH for 29 years until last February 28, said she resigned from her service in the agency "in protest of the Ligtas Buntis as it is revolting to the conscience."
...
"DOH has been telling lies all along," Acosta said adding that most people in that agency do not know the issue."DOH is supposed to uphold the health of the people but because of the contraceptives, it makes them sick."
Acosta recalled, "During my training I saw the horrible truth of contraceptives," referring to the training she had months before the Ligtas Buntis campaign took off.She said contraceptives, like the intra-uterine device and the pill, are "abortifacients."
Acosta accused the DOH of "brainwashing" the public on "population explosion."With the use of IUD, the bleeding that occurs on some women "is not ordinary blood but from a baby aborted," she said.
