House ends RH debate

Church aghast as bill nears approval

By ,

DEBATES OVER. Lawmakers attend a session at the House of Representatives Monday, opting to end debate on the controversial Reproductive Health Bill. AP

With resounding “ayes,” the contentious debates on the reproductive health (RH) bill came to an abrupt end Monday in the House of Representatives, just hours after President Benigno Aquino summoned congressmen to the Palace and pleaded to bring the measure forward to its second stage.

This means the controversial population control measure would now go through a period of amendments, before it is put to a vote on second reading on the floor.

For the first time since 188 congressmen agreed to impeach then Chief Justice Renato Corona in blitzkrieg fashion last December in a Japanese restaurant, lawmakers went to lunch in the Palace Monday to attend to yet another priority administration project.

There, they heard Mr. Aquino make what one attendee described as a “diplomatic appeal”—no, the President did not issue marching orders according to this congressman—to 182 lawmakers present during the two-and-a-half hour meeting to end the interpellations in the House that had bogged down progress in discussions  of the bill.

Back in the House later, the majority of the 231 members present—including former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao who both oppose the RH bill—yelled “aye!” when asked for a viva voce, or voting orally.

The vote came 24 hours ahead of schedule, short-circuiting attempts by the Catholic Church hierarchy to mount yet another protest against the measure originally set for decision Tuesday. Church leaders have threatened to campaign in next year’s election against lawmakers favoring the RH bill.

‘God have mercy on him’

Navotas Rep. Toby Tiangco moved for nominal voting in an apparent bid to identify those favoring the bill, but withdrew his motion after it was largely ignored as the evening session broke up.

“God have mercy on him and on us,” said Fr. Melvin Castro, executive director of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines-Episcopal Commission on Family and Life, of the President’s action just two days after the Church led an anti-RH rally at the  Edsa Shrine attended by a crowd of about 10,000. He warned that the Church would not take the move lightly, saying “2013 is just around the corner.”

In the upper chamber, however, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, who attended Saturday’s rally, announced he had questions about the bill, calling for the reopening of interpellation. Enrile is against the bill.

Senate Majority Leader Tito Sotto, who is also against the measure, said the House action “does not affect the Senate, as far as I’m concerned.”

Proponents of the bill in the Senate have complained that the leadership was sitting on the measure, threatening to derail administration plans to enact the bill into law this year to afford the poor access to maternal health care and family planning methods.

One opponent of the bill, Anwaray Rep. Florencio Noel, said the period of amendments—the next stage in the lawmaking process—could be equally contentious. This is where compromises may be made and battles on corrections would take place.

Opponents of the bill immediately opposed the formal motion to end the debates when Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales II introduced it on the floor.

Cagayan de Oro Rep. Rufus Rodriguez complained that the original agreement was that the vote would be held Tuesday, adding he still had many questions to ask.

Manila Rep. Amado Bagatsing objected that the No. 6 in the date Monoday—August 6—was unlucky because it was associated with the devil. Batangas Rep. Hermilando Mandanas and Zambales Rep. Milagros Magsaysay wailed against the move as well.

Despite this, the vote to terminate the debates pushed through. By 6:07 p.m., it was all over.

Conscience vote

The decision to terminate the debates was made during a meeting with the President, where he shared his thoughts on responsible parenthood with 182 lawmakers, consisting of both supporters and opponents of the measure, according to participants.

Gonzales said the President told lawmakers that the RH bill had been through so much debate and everybody was already familiar with the issues.

Mr. Aquino said the debates should end, and the lawmakers could move on to the next stage to perfect the measure.

But the President also made it clear that he was not telling lawmakers to vote for the bill. He just wanted an end to the debates, which had been going on for years, Gonzales said.

“Everybody agreed. More than that, the consensus was instead of doing it [Tuesday], might was well do it today [Monday],” Gonzales said in a phone interview, though he added later that Mandanas had dissented during the Palace meet.

He said Parañaque Rep. Roilo Golez proposed moving up the vote, noting that this was a good idea since the situation in the gallery on the scheduled vote today would probably be tense after interest groups announced plans to troop to the House during the vote.

Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman, a staunch proponent of the bill, said that the President had asked lawmakers to cast a “conscience vote,” to summon the courage to decide as leaders, undeterred by threats of reprisals at the polls, and address health problems and the backlog in education, aggravated by a ballooning population.

Prochildren by choice

Lagman also said the President was for “children by choice, not by chance.”

Eastern Samar Rep. Ben Evardone said among the 182 lawmakers at the Palace lunch were  Minority Leader Danilo Suarez and 10 others in the opposition, along with members of the ruling Liberal Party, the Nacionalista Party, the Nationalist People’s Coalition, Lakas-CMD and some party-list groups.

“Both pro- and anti-RH were there,” Gonzales said.

Evardone, a member of the ruling party, made it clear that Mr. Aquino did not pressure House members to speed up the floor debates. “No, in fact, they are all in favor of terminating the period of debates,” he said.

He said that the President was “very diplomatic.”

“He was not very forceful. He did not issue a marching order. He was just appealing, but I think it was a masterstroke on his part to make that bold move to appeal to all the members of Congress regardless of whether you are a supporter or anti-RH,” said Evardone.

    “God have mercy on him and on us,”

    I think He just did. May God bless the Philippines.

    Why is that our dear President is asking to “Vote with your conscience”" while those who supposed to author such advise..the Rev in SUV…are the one sounds more than a politician by threatening candidates for the mid-term election. 

    I think this development will now show who is in the side of GOD…hate to say this…God have mercy unto those bishops who think that they are GODS.

    • Michael Paras

      Yes. That’s a very good observation. I think the church leaders are getting desperate, that’s why they now have to resort to threats.

      You weren’t born yesterday, you were born back in the Jurassic era with your way of thinking. Even the anti RH law makers said there was no marching order and the president was diplomatic throughout. Why do you need to put words in the mouths of those who were there? Why can’t you just take it for what it is.

    Government has nothing to worry about.  62% of the electorate made it clear they were in favor of the RH Bill, and that was before the last election –  it has increased dramatically since that time.

    Thank God after almost almost 500 years, the reign of Padre Damaso in this country is at an end.

    Thank you Mr. President for finally liberating us from the stranglehold of the Roman Catholic Church.

    Let us now thread the path of science and objectivity towards progress. No more superstition, bigotry and clerical oppression. 

  • quirinomayer

    We will now see the more virulent and uglier face of the CBCP aka Padre Damaso. They will hold never ending rallies daw. Meaning more lies about the RH Bill and threats against Pnoy and the brave congressmen.

    But with Pnoy firmly in command, victory for the RH Bill and the nation is only a matter of time.
    It will be next to impossible now for Padre Damaso to  turn the tide in Congress and like a domino effect, Senate will also follow in approving the RH Bill.

    With what happened in Congress yesterday, the enemies of the RH Bill and the nation are now mortally wounded.

    Thank you Pnoy and congressmen!

  • Hey_Dudes

    After this bill is passed, I hope congress will propose taxing religious organization to enable their arguments to stand on solid grounds. As it is, like in the case of the catholic church, they meddle in every ways even when they are not paying taxes?  Now they even have the gumption to threaten those who will vote positive on the bill next election?  These shameless hypocrites should be taxed so they can be better members of the nation’s tax paying citizens.

    he Catholic church do not want to put this law into effect because to them it is anti-life. This priest are pro-life and they even practice creating life themselves I know a lot of them have fathered a child outside of their profession and this children lived their lives in total secrecy to avoid scrutiny and shame what a pity for this innocent people. I believe in God but I have a second thought now believing this people of the Church. There are so many abuses and crimes being committed under the cover of their hood and still they think they are holy and untouchables. Church now are all business and very corrupt -baptism, house blessings,weddings, mass for the deceased, car blessings, etc all of this have pricelist and count your voluntarily donations too during calamities al of this goes to their pockets. .

    When INC called for their prayer rally, close to a million marched to the grandstand at Luneta.  When the hypocrites CBCP called on the people to march to EDSA to show support for the anti RH bill, they used the word “Massive” to describe those expected to attend.  The massive went flop and only 7 to 10,000.00 souls showed up. Is this not enough reason to make these CBCP hypocrites embarrassed seeing their influence waning  due to their mentality?  Many Catholics are now joining other faiths disgusted with the continued high handed tactics of these hypocrites.

      The Vatican itself HAS a universal RH law.  Remember that the Vatican does not have a legislature, so in accordance with the Lateran Treaty that created the Vatican, all the civil, criminal and political laws of Italy become the law of the Vatican as well.

      That means that the Vatican has divorce law as well because that is an Italian law.

    Congratulations to the Filipino People! This has been a long fight.  But, last night, we finally saw some indications on how the final vote will come to.  There are many heroes in this struggle.  But We the People are the true owners and heroes on this landmark achievement.

    The period of amendments, Second Reading and Final Reading — and the corresponding process in the Senate — are still ahead of us.  But last night’s vote was a crucial indication of the support of Congress.  Victory is at hand, guard it up to the finish line and behind.

     

    • isidro c. valencia

      But the President also made it clear that he was not telling lawmakers to vote for the bill. He just wanted an end to the debates, which had been going on for years, Gonzales said.

      Crystal clear, because for over decades, the bill is still pending. It has to be amended to erase the provisions of “abortifacients” drugs and pills that kill the unborn babies. This is the second round.

    • Rigoberto_Doronila

        Pass the RH Bill now and tomorrow, the Philippines will become a developed nation, because:

      1. Foreign investors would start flocking to the Philippines because of investor-friendly provisions in the constitution.
      2. Manufacturing would see a sudden boost because we have one of the cheapest electricity rates in the world.
      3. Research & Development would take off because we have the best science and maths education in Asia.
      4.
      Businesses will grow exponentially because the cost of doing business
      here (including red tape, kickbacks, payoffs) is very low.
      5. All
      those OFWs will start coming home because of the many jobs that will be
      instantly created once this Bill is passed. Nevermind that they will
      start having sexy time with their spouses once here, therefore, risking
      making more babies, because contraceptives will be highly available.
      6.
      Rich professionals and businessmen will love staying here because of
      our 35% + top income tax (for income anywhere) is much better than Hong
      Kong’s 15%. Not to mention, their personal security is assured because
      we have no kidnappers, carnappers, holduppers.
      7. Countries like the
      US, in Western Europe and Japan experience their biggest economic
      growth, not in the 50s population boom, but these days, when the birth
      rate is very low.
      8. Our tourism infrastructure is the best in Asia.
      9. There’s no corruption in government. There’s a level playing field in private business. THIS I’M VERY SURE OF.
      10.
      IN OTHER WORDS, Because those poor kids running around are themselves
      the reason why they are poor. They should stop being born. THEY’RE THE BIGGEST DEVELOPMENT PROBLEM THE COUNTRY FACES. Let’s not devote public
      money to just maternal and child care. We should spend those billions on
      condoms and IUDs.
      FINALLY, DEVELOPMENT IS NOT THE BEST CONTRACEPTIVE. Contraceptives are the best for development. LOL.

    During the Senate Budget hearing and upon Enrile’s grilling of NEDA Director Balisacan. the latter admitted that the U.N. had set a 2.1 fertility rate for countries. When asked by Enrile how the Philippines fared, Balisacan was forced to admit thus, “actually we are 1.98 per cent” which means that is way below the standard set by the U.N. Sen. Recto emphasized the obvious by saying, “more or less we are in a sustainable growth rate.” Ngayon, sam at tamumd at lahat ng dilaw, asan na natin hahanapin yong sinasabi ninyong over population? Yong laughdog ninyo sa NEDA umamin ng wala sa oras.

       Have you not seen the streetchildren everywhere in Manila? Unless you are blind.

    • lucidlynx

      Anong laughdog? Lapdog siguro ang ibig mong sabihin.

      At ang fertility rate ng Pinas is more than that, more than 3. And besides, fertility rates refer to births/woman. Kung malaki ang female population, then marami ang births. If you have 40 million women in the Philippines, let’s assume kalahati lang ang manganganak, say 20 million. 20 million x 3 = new births in a woman’s lifetime say 80 years. So in 80 years, 20 million x 3 ang madadagdag sa population ng Pinas.

      We are now 85 million.

      • Michael Paras

        Yes you are right. Enrile is completely wrong here. Plus, our population at 2012 is around 100 million. We were 92 million back in 2010.

        The average number of babies produced in our country is twice the world average. Hence, our growth rate is also almost twice the world average. Glad to know there’s someone else here who’s seen the error on Enrile and herculubus’ part.

      Stop peddling outright lies!!! Enrile is totally wrong on this one. Fertility rate is NOT the growth rate. The average world growth rate by 2011 was at 1.1%. We are above it by .89%. That’s almost twice the average figure. Hahaha! Outright BS and they didn’t even care to look up the definition and difference between growth rate and fertility rate. Total face palm to each and everyone who bought this grave error.

    Finally, the fictional character in Noli Me Tangere named Padre Damaso is exposed in today’s battle between Pro and anti RH.

    The true color of the bishops are now known even to children. They lied, they threaten, they bullied, in their
    extreme desires to junk RH bill. But it’s look like, the reign of padre damaso will come to an end, after more than 300 years of despotic terror.

    If defeated, this will signal the beginning of new era where the priests and bishops will be nothing but kibitzers only.

    This is also a warning for the church not to interfere anymore with the affairs of the state or it will face embarrassment again.

    The church has mobilized it entire arsenal and  yet, it appears, it is headed to a grand embarrassment. Time for Padre Damaso to surrender and just concentrate on its role to safeguard the morality of the people.

    Tama na ang pakikialam sa estado kung hindi, pahiya na naman kayo.

      Finally, napaamin ni Enrile si NEDA Director Arsenio Balisacan sa budget hearing na walang over population sa Pilipinas.  2.1 ang U.N. Standard for growth rate, 1.98 lang ang growth rate ng Philippines. Sino ngayon ang sinungaling? Sino ngayon ang na-exposed? Yong bata ninyo sa NEDA either kulang sa briefing o di marunong magsinungaling gaya ni PNoycchio at mga alipores niya kagaya mo.

        Fertility rate po ang 2.1. Ibig sabihin, eto yung average na anak ng mga pamilya sa buong mundo. Yung average growth rate ng mundo ay 1.1%. Mas mataas tayo ng .89% sa average. Mali po ang binigay niyong facts. As usual mali nanaman si Manong Enrile. Kawawa naman si Neda Director.

      • arthur1401

        what is there to celebrate if balisacan was cornered by enrile.
        For your education so that you will be enlightened, these are the gloomy figures and facts why phil needs to trim its population on a long-term basis.

        The phil is #12 most populous country in the world. Of the 12 most populated countries, the phil has the highest desity/Sq KM at 310 person/ SQKM, second only to japan at 377/sqkm. But japan has controlled its population growth to only -.11%. Japan will not control its population unless its economic standing will not be affected. If growth is not controlled, time will come that there will not be enough space for each filipino.

        The growth rate of the following countries speaks why these countries are more progressive: China=0.51%, Thailand-0.56%, US-0.86%, Malaysia-1.66%. Most of the low growth countries are developed countries and has very large land mass and would like to expand their growth rate.

        Take note Herculobos that the Phil is #69 in the list with highest population growth. All  countries with growth higher than the philippines are very poor and under-developed and they are concentrated in asia and africa. Only Brunei and singapore has higher growth than the phil but these countries really need more people to maintain economic growth. 

        Now, it looks like than the only reason why you are anti-RH is because pnoy is pro-RH. There is no substance in your argument, so better research before you post comment such as the above.

        WHO, UNAIDS, UNFPA, demographic experts and scientists have recommended RH passage and yet the uneducated yet learned ones like the bishops, you, etc, still refused to accept the fact that we no longer live in medieval ages and the world is flat thoery. we are now in the internet world living dangerously because the resouces are slowly being depleted.

    The congressmen are not telling the truth when some of them say that Noynoy did not give them marching orders. Was their meeting with him prior to speed up the approval of the RH bill mere coincidental? Measure such as this which will have a permanent effect on the future of this country especially of our children should not be fast tracked just because of the wishes of the President. Western societies now due to this contraceptive mentality are not only suffering moral problems affecting their families and their people individually but  suffering economic problems like greying population and the refusal of their women to bear children despite incentives being offered by their government. Noynoy and his cohorts are being simplistic and irresponsible in addressing our   economic problems brought about by selfishness of some families and individuals. Their solution to solve poverty which is RH is even a worse selfish solution where fetus or young human beings who can not defend themselves because they are sill inside their mothers’ wombs most of whom are of poor parents. Their predecessors deprived our forefathers of money and economic opportunities while this time through RH, they are depriving us the poor and our future generations of our lives and the opportunity to live because they have prejudges us that we can not rise  poverty which their forefathers incidentally started with our own forefathers. We the people should rethink our position. These officials of ours, do we see in their lives and in heir lifestyles that hey are truly with us the poor? Are they not living luxurious lives while condemning us notdeserving to beget children just because we are poor?

  • Pedro Mateo

    My observation; The original bill is 14 years old, on this congress, they had debated it for 18 months so it was proper to stop debating it and put on their commends, recommendation, suggestion and conduct leveling on contested provisions. . This will make the law more perspective to everybody. .That’s is lawmaking not filibustering. . Like Cong. Rufus is filibustering and he is not clean as he was. . Estoryahee. . Let us pass the Bill and see whether it will give impact of the lives of the poor people to think twice before making babies. .

    ” He warned that the Church would not take the move lightly, saying “2013 is just around the corner.”

    And if the church keeps embarrassing their following with the ludicrous rhetoric we have been hearing in the last week…topped off by the Archbishop claiming God’s plan is in progress to end the world…they won’t have much of a following left by 2013. It was only a few years ago nobody would dare speak out against them but now their redundant thought is being ignored, or rather “courteously  endured” by the palace.

    This issue is the churches’  Achilles’ heel , which they are well aware of. A replay of how they lost in the USA, not only the birth contol/abortion issue but also a massive slice of their congregation. Then the floodgates opened with child abuse victims coming forward, sensing their weakest moment. Then it was mostly all over for their game.

    So it’s no surprise to see the churches’ desperation on this issue and we can probably expect the exact scenario to play out in the Philippines as it moves into the modern era. Just as the church and state should be separate… God and the church will be separate in many Filipinos minds….

    YES to RH Law

  • TagaMlang

    This is just the first hurdle.  After the amendments, the biggest hurdle is the second and final reading for the approval of the RH Bill.  Hopefully, the RH Bill will be approved by Congress.

    In the Senate, the Senate version of the RH Bill will have to be approved also.  I understand that the senate battleground as far as the RH Bill is concerned will be bloody.

    Once both RH Bills are approved in the Senate and Congress, it will go to the Bicameral Committee for consolidation.  Then after the bicam comes up with the consolidated bill, it will now be presented to the President for his approval.  After the approval, an Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) will be formulated prior to the implementation of the RH Law.

    So it takes time for the RH Bill to be enacted into law and its subsequent implementation.

    Meantime, let’s keep our fingers crossed that couples who are not into family planning restraint from copulating, but with the “cold and conducive” weather, I doubt it very much.  Hey guys, I know what you are thinking….

    Inconsistency in the stand of the damasos.

    First, they said sex is only for procreation. 

    Then, they said, procreation can also be avoided by natural method of withdrawal.

    Withdrawal has the same effect as using condom – the sperms die.

    Clearly, the stand of the damasos is condradictory to their own dogma.

    In desperation, the damasos are resorting to misinformation to mislead the public about the RH.

    But for sure, they can not mislead the lawmakers.

    This is for the education of the bishops and all those anti-RH fanatics whose only reason for going against RH bill is because they want to embarass pnoy and nothing else. I am pretty sure that they know that the uncontrolled population will bring our country to the same abysmal condtion of poor countries in Africa and asia but they are in denial.

    For your enlightenment bishops and other anti-R supportersH, here are the gloomy figures and facts why phil needs to trim its population on a long-term basis.The phil is #12 most populous country in the world now. Of the 12 most populated countries, the phil has the highest desity/Sq KM at 310 person/ SQKM, second only to japan at 377/sqkm. But japan has controlled its population growth to only -.11%. Japan will not control its population unless its economic standing will not be affected. If growth is not controlled, by the year 2050, the density will be 514 person/sq km at 154M people. It is unimaginable to think how it will be in urban areas like metro manila. i can imagine that people will be fighting for an open 1 sq inch for habitation. There will be mayhem. Phil will become one of the most dense population in the world and less and less green areas will be left for agriculture.

    The growth rate of the following countries speaks why these countries are more progressive: China=0.51%, Thailand-0.56%, US-0.86%, Malaysia-1.66%. Most of the low growth countries are developed countries and has very large land mass and would like to expand their growth rate.

    Take note that the Phil is #69 in the list with highest population growth. All countries with growth higher than the philippines are very poor and under-developed and they are concentrated in asia and africa. Only Brunei and singapore has higher growth than the phil but these countries really need more people to maintain economic growth.

    The bishops are not looking beyond the simple arithmetic and logic. In their eagerness to embarass pnoy, they are threatening the pro-RH legislator with non-support in 2013 election, not knowing that those legislator will have more supporters, a whooping 80% of the people.

    1. Foreign investors would start flocking to the Philippines because of investor-friendly provisions in the constitution.
    2. Manufacturing would see a sudden boost because we have one of the cheapest electricity rates in the world.
    3. Research & Development would take off because we have the best science and maths education in Asia.
    4. Businesses will grow exponentially because the cost of doing business here (including red tape, kickbacks, payoffs) is very low.
    5. All those OFWs will start coming home because of the many jobs that will be instantly created once this Bill is passed. Nevermind that they will start having sexy time with their spouses once here, therefore, risking making more babies, because contraceptives will be highly available.
    6. Rich professionals and businessmen will love staying here because of our 35% + top income tax (for income anywhere) is much better than Hong Kong’s 15%. Not to mention, their personal security is assured because we have no kidnappers, carnappers, holduppers.
    7. Countries like the US, in Western Europe and Japan experience their biggest economic growth, not in the 50s population boom, but these days, when the birth rate is very low.
    8. Our tourism infrastructure is the best in Asia.
    9. There’s no corruption in government. There’s a level playing field in private business. THIS I’M VERY SURE OF.
    10. IN OTHER WORDS, Because those poor kids running around are themselves the reason why they are poor. They should stop being born. They’re the biggest development problem the country faces. Let’s not devote public money to just maternal and child care. We should spend those billions on condoms and IUDs.
    FINALLY, DEVELOPMENT IS NOT THE BEST CONTRACEPTIVE. Contraceptives are the best for development. LOL.

      “MORE THAN 10% OF THE POPULATION ALREADY OUT OF THE COUNTRY FOR OBVIOUS REASONS.” What are the reasons? I’ll state some, no jobs, no peace/security, no discipline, and most people are corrupt. Those 10% choose to seek the Green Buck, $$$$… they are seeking better opportunity because not enough job here in Philippines….We have a lot of untap natural resources that can support the lives of Filipinos, the government just need to exploit and not corrupt it.

    “God have mercy on him and on us,” said Fr. Melvin Castro, executive director of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines-Episcopal Commission on Family and Life, of the President’s action just two days after the Church led an anti-RH rally at the  Edsa Shrine attended by a crowd of about 10,000. He warned that the Church would not take the move lightly, saying “2013 is just around the corner.”

    Fr. Melvin why not pray instead for god’s mercy on Pope Alexander VI who sexually molested and had an incestuous relationship with his own daughter, Lucrezia Borgia.

Mabuti naman at isinaisangtabi na ang debate, at pag-ukulan na ng pansin ang pagbalangkas ng RH Bill. Cong. Pong Biazon further said: “Pakinggan natin ang tao, 80% ay pabor sa RH Bill.” Hehehe, ibig sabihin, hindi tao ang mga Obispo at Pari?

    MISSAYA (ano ka, bisayang ngongo?) atbp pang ayaw sa RH bill – walang catholic vote kahit pa anong pamamaluktot na sinasabi ng simbahan. Ang INC at Ecumenical groups ay pro na pro po sa RH bill! Kaya kung boto at boto lang ang ipinapanakot ng simbahang katoliko, malamang sa kangkungan lang ang punta ng mga kontra RH bill sa election. Mananakot pa na susunod na raw ang abortion after RH bill? Haller!!! Paninira lang po yun. Magbasa muna sila. Mismo sa Roma where the Vatican is) at sa Spain (who brought us Catholicism) di lang divorce may abortion pa, sino naman itong Pilipinas na banal na aso pero santong kabayo?

  • PikonNaKami

    A mother who knows that she has raised her children well will not worry about the temptations that her children will face.   But the Catholic Church is like a errant mother who knows that her children will succumb to temptation at the slightest provocation.  

    If the Catholics are strong in their faith, then why should the Catholic Church hierarchy worry about their flock using condoms?  Is the Catholic Church’s teaching so weak and meaningless that a municipal health center offering free contraceptives will undermine the resolve of the faithful?

    What will the bishops lose if free condoms are offered in municipal health centers? What will the Bishops lose if the children are taught about sex education?  If the Catholic parents are offended by the schools’ teaching of sex education, then the parents can talk to their children and tell them that there are certain lessons in school that do not conform with their religious beliefs.  They can even include in their debriefing that dinosaurs do not really exists since it was not mentioned in the Bible.

    Catholics schools should be given special dispensation not to teach sex education to their students and let their parents do the teachings. I am sure the parish priests will eagerly volunteer to teach little boys about sex education. What kind of a  religion ensures that only the rich Catholics can afford good reproductive healthcare?  Why is it that in Makati, when a beggar with a baby in her arms knocks on the door of an SUV with a “No to RH bill sticker”, the car owner does not even look at the beggar?

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

    RH Bill looks at the Filipino poor like pest infestation to be stopped by free mandatory contraceptives ordered by UN to retard the alleged over population growth in the Philippines. Noynoy followed suit and ordered his lieutenants-congressmen to pass the bill asap and the congressmen obliged ALL IN THE NAME OF THE MIGHTY god OF MONEY they all worship!

    I don’t see any genuine human concern for the poor on the part of Noynoy and these congressmen. What past presidents dribbled not to pass the last 14 years, Noynoy simplistically thinks he can better them by passing the bill during his term. Now Noynoy will proudly declare I DID IT in 2 years what those 3 presidents coudnt do during their terms, not knowing the 3,despite UN pressure, did it purposely so it won’t appear they’re delaying it because their conscience and faith doubted its wisdom.

    Noynoy is an easier simpleton for the UN to manipulate.

         kung mali ang pangulo marcos man o si gasino kakalabanin ko na walang takot. PANININDIGAN ang usapin dito. Tignan mo wala na si marcos ngayon AbNoy naman na walang kakayahang maging marcos ngunit nag asta astahang marcos. His parents Ninoy and Cory are turning in their graves – ano ba tong pinaggagawa ng anak natin. Sa an tayo nagkulang at bakit kulang siya?

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

    Dapat ang pagkaabalahan ng gobyerno ni AbNoy ay ang KORUPSYON, BAHA AT POVERTY hindi RH Bill na isang DIKTA lamang ng UN at ng mga Masons na nagpapatakbo sa ating mundo ngayon. Masons (Bill Gates, Buffet, Rothschilds, Obama and others anonymous yet) now dictate world policies being implemented by the UN, World Bank, US etc.

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

    Kung salot ang tingin ng UN, ni AbNoy at mga kongresista niyang kaalyado sa mga mahihirap nating kababayan, ba’t hindi na lang nila pagpapatayin ito na parang daga at ipis at huwag nang ida an sa RH Bill na kunwari mi malasakit sa kanila (REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH KUNO?) ang dating. Niloloko nyo lang ang mga tao.

        I suggest just ignore the guy bro. Siya lang naman nagmumukhang kawawa at KSP na ngawa ng ngawa dito, feeling nagmamagaling, pero mukha namang tanga sa paulit na ulit na walang kwentang sinasabi. Hehehe. Yung mga ganyan pinagtatawanan na lang.

      • PaengSaAmerika

        I would suggest na ‘binyagan’ natin si Boypalaban ng bagong pangalan. Dahil sa sobrang loyal niya sa mga modern Damasos, ang itatawag natin sa kanya eh “Boysakristan”. Agree?

      • sked482

        I was thinking more along the lines of “Boyngawa”, hehehehe, but sure, I’ll go with you. Although, he seems to be agitated enough already by the pro-RH posts here and is already entertaining enough as it is with all his kangangawa. Hahahaha.

      • INQ415

        BoyBawang na lang. sigurado iiwasan mo sa personal dahil sa hininga kaya typing lang nagngangawa

      • sked482

        Nandamay pa, obvious na puro condom laman ng utak mo, kaya panay ngawa mo. Cge pa ngawa pa ng ngawa, baka may maawa sayo magsaksak ng condom sa bunganga mo. Hahahaha. BOYLOSER.

      • boypalaban

        LOSER….sorry di ko sadya talunin ka…

      • sked482

        May isa pa ko naisip, pwede rin natin tawaging “Boycondom”. Napansin niyo puro condom nginangawa ni Boy, mukhang may hangover sa condom to eh. Kaya mukhang condom. Hahahaha! Kung bibigyan kaya natin to ng condom, titigil na. Ay huwag na lang, sayang pagpapatawa niya. Hahahaha.

      • PaengSaAmerika

        Kakabagan naman ako sayo niyan, sked482! Hey, gumaganti si Boysakristan, eh bawang, eh ngawa…. TSUPAENG SA MALACANANG daw bago kong pangalan. Aba, e di kung ganon, related din sa responsible parenthood yun, di ba? Gets mo?

      • sked482

        Oo nga eh. Pero hayaan lang natin ngu-mawa, sayang din pagpapatawa niya, eh siya lang naman nagmumukhang tanga. O isa ko pang naisip, boytanga. Hahahaha.

    mali lang ang basa natin noong libing ni Cory. Ako man at 100+ na

  • bgcorg

    This was a wrong move, Mr. President.  You would be leading the country to you know not where. It would have been better to have the Lower House by itself.  Now, the blame for wrong policy-making can be laid squarely at your door.  The administration should have tackled more effective poverty alleviation measures that directly address the problems of the poor.  The condescending and patronizing attitude of this president smacks of the usual haciendero mentality and comfort zone.  It is giving them “cake” when they ask for “bread”; it is giving them fish for the day instead of teaching them how to fish.  He misappreciated the real roots of the problem and, like a pied piper, is leading his followers to certain catastrophe. 

    It is now clear that his solution to the wrongly identified problem of overpopulation is to adopt the contrary way, erasing the competitive advantage of the country while neglecting full human development as a constitutionally mandated goal by denying them equal opportunities, adequate jobs, livelihood, gainful means to add to the income of their families, provide affordable education for the many especially in the remotest parts of the country, work for peace and order especially in identified dissident and rebel areas and provide more primary medical services, especially child and maternal care to a wider population and making such affordable.  But the symptom is not the real problem. If the very poor see hope as a light to their darkness and a quality life is made realistic and meaningful by the reign of social justice in the land, there will be little time, if ever, to resort to free recreation by means of sex among the poor couple. An aggressive birth control program as a state policy (that is by law) does not develop our human resources as they are now or give a reversible alternative as we go overboard within this generation and escape a “demographic winter”.  It does not provide for a healthy “replacement rate” fo our population now which is below what you consider “standard” to keep our country competitive in the global stage.  It does not give real hope to the very poor or promote social justice in the land.  Rather, and sadly, it puts this country into the mold other advanced countries would  like it to be in, truly trapping us in. 

    This administration wants this country perhaps forever in the oppressive claws of greed and dependence sooner because we do not want to look beyond the horizons and welcome the solutions  other countries have prescribed for us, for the pittance of aid, at the sacrifice of our sovereighnty as a people, with our own aspirations, ideals,  and identity as a people.

    We succumb to our greed, the stirrings of passion, the false security of power and authority to sacrifice the poor by killing their “ilk,” so that we can enjoy our lack of generosity and be open to life.  We are pro-life only if we can destroy the poor so that in our time we could enjoy ourselves according to our chosen lifestyle and convenience.  Lord, have mercy.

    • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

      Half tama ka jan and that’s what’s happening in Europe now after decades of RH existence. You wont see children hearing mass anymore lahat matatanda na. Wala ng naglalakad na bata sa Zurich kasi zero population na sila at ayaw na nilang mag anak. RH changed their social and moral philosophy. They only value their convenience and hate having kids because it’s stressful. They’d rather adopt cats and dogs or adopt if ever kids from Africa or from the Philippines. Tama ka INQ415 – that’s the target scenario of UN in all RH bill countries 20 years from now. And that’s where the roadmap of RH bill points to.

      • INQ415

        zurich is still growing. and their population is enough to sustain their economy and live a healthy and secure life. 

        now, compare that to the 25.5 million people in metro manila. you say they hate kids because it is stressful. isn’t it stressful to feed 5-10 children and ending up with no money left for your retirement? everyday the lord makes, you think of ways on how to just make it to another day while keeping your sanity?

        add the crime and everyday dangers that you have to face because other people are looking for easy ways to make money too, even if that means taking another person’s life.

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

    RH Bill weakens the family as a social institution and the foundation of society by preventing the births of so many innocent and precious lives who one day could change the country. Our people is our most valuable resource and that’s our competitive edge over other countries now on zero population mode. So why follow the wrong dictates of the UN!!!

    • INQ415

      unplanned pregnancy also destroys the lives of young or unprepared people AND the life of the innocent precious unborn fetus that will be bombarded with negative thoughts while still in the womb.

    • Helloherehellothere

      Valuable resource? Eh di mo nga mapakain, mapaaral ng matino. And please spare us your irrationality. There are no births or precious lives that are prevented–as you stubbornly and continuously claim–because there is no biological life that has started in the first place. So quit talking about a culture of death. Is it so hard to understand when you are guided by blind faith? Seems that way.

      And please lang, I’ve seen your posts in the other article. Use rationality to argue with rationality, not bible quotes. Not religion. Not hot air and feelings. I hope you can use the brain that God has given you, and stop insulting him with your persistently faulty arguments.

      • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

        Are you there helloherehellothere? you can only see a foot ahead in your thinking and you claim to be full of wisdom you lousy lout. Have you been to europe and see what’s happening to their cities and have you seen how RH culture has improved their countries now besieged by bankruptcies left and right. that’s where we are going with RH Bill BECAUSE IT WILL NOT AND CAN NEVER SOLVE THE PROBLEMS OF ECONOMY. Preventing births of innocent lives will not prosper the nation in fact I bet RH Bill can never be successfully implemented here. You will just subject those poor Filipino mothers to cancers and other disease with your CONTRACEPTIVES and other harmful practices allowed under the RH BIll and make them guinea pigs.

      • Helloherehellothere

        Nope, I’ve not been to Europe, and on you go arguing I have no wisdom just because I have not stepped on their land. Who said it will solve all the problems of economy? It is just one bill after all, a step towards development which you will obviously counter again.

        I respect that you have chosen a side, I just hope you will use arguments with more sense, not quotes from your religion or facts that you misinterpret. Morality is a person’s choice, not whether he or she is associated with a certain religion or institution.

      • angtangamo

         oh that’s right. According to the CBCP’s scientific research, condoms or contraceptives causes cancer. Bwahahaha. Bunch of idiots.

    • Tony Deb

      Obviously you have never lived in an urban or rural poor community, and have not seen ‘t children suffering because their parents are unable to feed them adequately. Isn’t that a greater evil than encouraging the husband to use a condom during the wife’s fertile period? Now you are going to say condoms cause cancer or something so patently unscientific.

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

    RH Bill is worse than the death penalty. The death penalty only deprives one guilty person of his life. While the RH Bill prevents the births of so many innocent and beautiful lives. Who are we to prevent the births of precious lives who have done nothing wrong yet. Who are we to punish innocent lives for the deeds of people we call under the RH Bill as irresponsible parents?

    • Helloherehellothere

      Prevent birth=abortion. What is there to prevent when life is not started? And better do your research man, maternal deaths are not only caused by childbirth, but of abortion.

      Youre hopeless. you don’t event try to understand all the good arguments people are posting here. Like what I said in the other article, magdasal ka na lang at baka biyayaan ka pa ng bible quotes na pwedeng ibato, sadly you only insult your god. Separate church and state. And don’t forget, your religion is not the only religion in this country. And even atheists can have morals, but you deem everyone else below you just because of your false belief that your faith is so strong. Sadly it’s blind faith that you forego of logic and good reasoning.

    • Helloherehellothere

      Grabe ka lang I just realized. Di mo pa rin makuha ang simpleng konsepto at kaibahan ng contraception sa abortion at death. Hindi mo ba naaral ang konsepto ng REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM? Alam mo ba ano ang sperm at egg cell at kung kailan nagsisimula ang biological life?

      You are pathetic. You misinterpret facts, you misinform people just to prove an invalid point. So pathetic.

      Please lang…..KUMUHA KA NG DICTIONARY. at i-post mo ang mga definitions dito. para malinawagan kami sa mga sinasabi mo na sa tingin ko’y di pa rin mangyayari.

      Sabi ko pa naman sana you’ll use your wisdom and the brain God has given you. I’m sorry to say, pero mukhang wala e. I’m sure you are still blessed with other things, like persistency despite your invalid arguments. Good luck sa buhay, sana maging matagumpay ka.

      • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

        You dont understand your RH Bill because you can only see a foot ahead.
        Why does UN want the bill passed so it can prevent 100,000 births that
        caused 221 maternal deaths. Is preventing 100,000 births the answer to
        avoiding 221 maternal deaths. Not even rich mothers who died during
        childbirth can prevent their untimely deaths. Maternal death is an
        entirely different issue from preventing births of innocent lives. AND
        YOUR MYOPIC SOLUTION – GIVE THOSE MOTHERS FREE MANDATORY CONTRACEPTIVES
        and we solve both. PATHETIC YOU! 

        Why dont you state your case objectively? tell us your ubderstanding of the salient points of RH Bill so we can intelligently debate here and stop your name callings because it’s contagiousl Every time you call me names i tend to hit back.

        ayun na nga eh, kung may RH Bill edi parang binigyan nyo na din ng legal na rason para magpakatanga ang mga tao. Kung may RH Bill matututunan ba nila ang TUNAY na pagiging responsable? Hindi ba’t pag naging batas ang RH Bill ay lalong hindi matututo magpigil at maging responsableng mamamayan ang mga tao? basic discipline man lang. At sa tingin mo ba worth it na bawasan pa lalo ang budget ng mga MAS IMPORTANTENG sektor gaya ng edukasyon para lang matutong gumamit ng contraceptives ang mga tao? Reklamo kayo ng reklamo na ang papangit ng mga opisina ng gobyerno tapos papayag pa kayong bawasan ang budget para sa maintenance nito? Grabe.

      • KIBOR

        Tell that to the uneducated poor , tingnan mo kung kaya nila magpigil and see where does basic discipline fit in to their scenario. The RH Bill does not concentrate on the contraceptives alone, educate the people on Family Planning and Reproductive Health, give them a CHOICE and let them DECIDE!  

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/NXGVW6VVTCLNGGU2EE2SIP6PPI Simple

        Doesn’t the government already have programs educating the masses about this? Have they been successful? I’d much rather put the allotted budget elsewhere to more worthwhile projects. And that’s exactly the problem, where does discipline fit in? Walang disiplina ang mga tao. Wouldn’t the RH Bill aggravate this even more? You don’t discipline kids by letting them repeat their mistakes or help them in ‘improving’ their mistakes.

      • boypalaban

        this is a classic example of an ignorant comment. if a young mother has a heart ailment and pregnancy will put her life at risk, the RH Bill will require health workers to inform this young mother of her alternatives. kung puro kamunduhan lang ang nakikita mo sa mundo, kawawa ka naman.

    To Anti-RH Bill advocates, your arguments are irrelevant and immaterial. The RH Bill wills surely pass to be a law.

    • Helloherehellothere

      It will be, because God will find a way to bless us if we use the freewill he gave us with rationality and good purpose. Too bad some people here can’t stop quoting religion as arguments.

      Let’s just let them be. I’m tired of bothering with them and pointing out the purpose of the bill. Their problem is that they make generalizations like IT KILLS ALL PRECIOUS LIVES and PREVENTS BIRTHS and WILL NOT SOLVE PROBLEMS OF THE ECONOMY. whoever said it will do all that? Their blind faith tells them that.

      There are enough arguments here and there, and I am just another citizen contributing my thoughts on why I am pro-RH. What anti-RH people need to do is to actually read and understand these. But sadly, they continue with irrational arguments. Ok lang sana if it were valid, but they aren’t. So, let’s just engage ourselves in debate with people who can give an eye for an eye….rationality for rationality.

    You don’t use contraceptives.. but you curse your neighbor.. does that make you a saint??

    DON’T be selfish.. 

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

    Let’s talk sense and end name callings!

    Fr. Joaquin Bernas Stand on the RH Bill:

    “First, let me start by saying that I adhere to the teaching of
    the Church on artificial contraception even if I am aware that the teaching on
    the subject is not considered infallible doctrine by those who know more
    theology than I do. 
    Third, the obligation to respect freedom of religion is also
    applicable to the state. Thus, I advocate careful recasting of the provision on
    mandatory sexual education in public schools without the consent of parents. (I
    assume that those who send their children to Catholic schools accept the
    program of Catholic schools on the subject.) My reason for requiring the
    consent of parents is, in addition to free exercise of religion, the
    constitutional provision which recognizes the sanctity of the human family and “the
    natural and primary right of parents in the rearing of the youth for civic
    efficiency and the development of moral character.” (Article II, Section 12).

    Fourth, the duty to care for sexual and reproductive health of
    employees should be approached in a balanced way so that both the freedom of
    religion of employers and the welfare of workers will be attended to.  In this regard it may be necessary to
    reformulate the provisions already found in the Labor Code.

    Fifth, I hold that public money may be spent for the promotion of
    reproductive health in ways that do not violate the Constitution. Thus, for
    instance, it may be legitimately spent for making available reproductive
    materials that are not abortifacient. 
    Public money is neither Catholic, nor Protestant, nor Muslim or what
    have you and may be appropriated by Congress for the public good without
    violating the Constitution.

    Seventh, in addition, I hold that abortifacient  pills and devises should be banned by
    the Food and Drug Administration. However, determining which of the pills in
    the market are abortifacient is something for the judicial process to determine
    with the aid of science experts. 
    Our Court has already upheld the banning of at least one device found to
    be abortifacient.

    Tenth, I have never held that the RH Bill is perfect. But if we
    have to have an RH law, I intend to contribute to its improvement as much as I
    can.  I hold that the approval of
    the RH Bill today will not end all debate about it.  It will only shift the arena for debate from the raucous and
    noisy rally fields to the more sober judicial arena where reason has a better
    chance of prevailing.

    Finally, there are many valuable points in the bill’s Declaration
    of Policy and Guiding Principles which are desperately needed especially by
    poor women who cannot afford the cost of medical service. There are specific provisions
    which give substance to these good points. They should be saved even if we must
    litigate later about those which we disagree on.  In other words, let us not burn the house just to roast a
    pig.”HAS THE PRESENT RH BILL ORDERED FAST TRACKED BY NOYNOY ADDRESSED SUFFICIENTLY THE CONCERNS OF BERNAS? MUST WE END THE DEBATE OF WISDOM PEREMPTORILY WITHOUT ADDRESSING ALL CONCERNS THAT MAKE POOR MOTHERS GUINEA PIGS? WHAT IS CONDEMNABLE IS THE ALACRITY WITH WHICH NOYNOY ORDERED THE END OF DEBATES! Let us show our human concern for the would be guinea pigs of the bill….

      HAS THE PRESENT RH BILL ORDERED FAST TRACKED BY NOYNOY ADDRESSED SUFFICIENTLY THE CONCERNS OF BERNAS? MUST WE END THE DEBATE OF WISDOM PEREMPTORILY WITHOUT ADDRESSING ALL CONCERNS THAT MAKE POOR MOTHERS GUINEA PIGS? WHAT IS CONDEMNABLE IS THE ALACRITY WITH WHICH NOYNOY ORDERED THE END OF DEBATES! Let us show our human concern for the would be guinea pigs of the bill….

      First off, I think Fr Bernas article is a good starting point for any RH bill discussions.

      1. Whoever said the RH Bill was fast tracked? Isn’t 14 years of debates long enough? How many more years do you propose we continue the debates before all your concerns are satisfied? Should we continue blah-blah-blah for ten more years while our maternal death rates continue to rise and while Filipino couples are unable to limit their children to their desired number?

      2. The RH Bill won’t force any method on anybody. Whatever methods will be used by couples will be their own choice. So your penchant for calling recipients as guinea pigs is plain wrong. When you choose to drink a particular brand of medicine, does that make you a guinea pig, when that medicine is your choice?

      • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

        But has the present bill addressed Bernas concerns? answer is a BIG NO! so why end the debates. The debates in the past are no real honest to goodness debates. Now is the time to start an honest discussion until every concern has been thoroughly addressed. Let us not be cowed by the UN deadline because we’re making guinea pigs out of our poor mothers if ever we fail to address safety concerns. THATS MY POINT MY FRIEND!

      • sked482

        I already addressed your “guinea pig” penchant so I’ll ignore that part of your post.

        What makes the past discussions unreal? Just look through the debates that have been going on in congress recently and for the past years. The same arguments against the bill gets answered and gets repeated over and over again. Whatever you say about the way the bill was passed now, it has NOT been fasttracked.

        For the RCC, I propose a solution, and that is for you to use your considerable resources to promote amongst the catholic laity your preferred method of family planning. Even if the RH bill is passed, couples will be free to use their own preferred method, so catholics are free and may even receive government assistance and education on their preferred methods.

        Which part of Bernas’s concerns in your post above, do you think is not addressed by the present bill. For the sake of argument, please be specific.

      • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

         choice must be educated not by chance, and are you not wondering why so many today are suffering from cancers etc because by our uneducated choice we choose to eat mcdos and all those burgers and hotdogs and donuts. let’s have a rsponsible choice and lets debate more not cut short any honest debates and call any opposition as mere filibustering. That’s intolerance and dangerous because it promotes ignorance..

      • sked482

        That’s exactly what the bill intends, which is to inform couples about the pros and cons of each method, including the failure rate and the risks associated with each. Then in the end, it is still the couple who will decide for themselves after receiving the information. That is why education is a big component of the RH Bill, so that couples can make informed choices, and not just on the say-so of the media, their peers and friends, or even their priest or minister.

      • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

        now we’re talking sense and we should be because we’re dealing with lives here, not cartoon statistics. when i was my atheist self years back i might be one of your pros as my concern would only be ‘the end justifies the means’. thank God i am past that self! and i know many atheists are supporting this bill.

    • angtangamo

       There is no point talking sense to you because you are irrational and close minded. I would rather hit myself in the head with a dos por dos than argue with you. Like I said to you previously, get your nose out of the bishops anuses so you can get some fresh air and clear your mind a bit. Wala na kasi oxygen yung utak mo kaya ka nagiging deluded.

    • Tony Deb

      Haven’t you noticed that he is in not opposed to the passing of an RH Bill but just wants voices like his to be heard. Why can’t you you hysterical opponents of the RH Bill be as rational as he is.

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

    Part of the Stand of the Catholic Church vs the RH BIll:

     
    Why do you say that the bill violates to the Constitution ?

    By seeking to depopulate the
    country through a Government-funded program of aggressive proliferation
    of contraceptives thereby fostering a contraceptive mentality to attain a
    “satisfying and safe sex life”, known as contraceptive sex and
    implementing a mandatory sex education in private and public schools
    covering Grade V to 4th year, it infringes the Constitutional mandate
    that provides : “The state recognizes the sanctity of family life and
    shall protect and strengthen the family as a basic autonomous social
    institution.” (Sec 12 Art 11).

    It usurps the parents’ “natural and primary right and duty” in the rearing of the youth” (Sec 12 Art ll).

    By seeking to implement a
    massive distribution of contraception most of which are really
    abortifacients, it will put at great risk and endanger the health of
    both the mother and the unborn child . This is contrary to the
    Constitutional injunction “to protect the life of the mother and the
    life of the unborn from conception” (Sec. 12 Art ll).

    By compelling healthcare
    providers to refer the person seeking RH services he believes to be
    immoral and against his conscience to another healthcare provider
    willing to do the service sought violates the Constitutional guarantee
    of “the free exercise and enjoyment of religious profession” (Sec. 5 Art
    111).

    Since it has been medically
    established that use of oral contraceptives and devices pose danger and
    harm to the health of women with its side effects some causing cervical
    cancer, breast cancer, and lately it was discovered also to cause liver
    cancer, not to mention that many popular pills are abortifacients
    preventing implantation of the zygote in the uterus causing the abortion
    of the unborn. This is directly opposed to the Constitutional mandate
    “that the State shall protect consumers from trade malpractices and from
    substandard or hazardous products (Sec. 9 Art XV1)

    Why is the Church against the Bill ?

    First of all the bill is wrong not because the Church is opposing it, the Church is opposing it because it is wrong.

    According to Pope Benedict XVl
    whenever the Church (and Catholics too ,for that matter) intervenes in
    the public square, its principal focus of such participation must be
    consistent with the three Fundamental Non-negotiable Principles, which
    are -

    (i) the protection of life in all its stages, from the first moment of conception until natural death,

    (ii) the recognition and
    promotion of the natural structure of the family, as a union between man
    and woman based on marriage, and

    (iii) the protection of the rights of parents to educate their children.

    All these three fundamental
    non-negotiable principles have been compromised, undermined and
    conveniently set aside in the bill to propel its single-minded agenda of
    aggressive contraception in an effort to depopulate the country of the
    “poorest of the poor and the marginalized’, which also spawns hedonistic
    lifestyle devoid of any moral sense.

    This is the reason the Church is against it, among many other reasons.

    The bill in its present form
    poses a serious threat to life of infants in the womb, as it is a source
    of danger for the stability of the family and places the dignity of
    womanhood at great risk for which reason it is unacceptable to the
    Church ( cf CBCP Pastoral Statement on the RHB, Standing Up for the
    Gospel of Life, 2008).

    By actively opposing the
    Bill, does not the Church violate the principle of separation of Church
    and State, and meddles in the political arena which is outside of its
    competence?

    The Principle of Separation of
    Church and State simply means that no official state religion shall be
    established and the state shall not interfere in the affairs of the
    Church. No law bars the Church from participating in public activities
    nor to articulate a particular viewpoint, or forcefully advocate a
    specific stand in public policy issues. It is Church law or Canon law
    that prohibits individual members of the clergy from dipping his hands
    into active partisan politics.

    “To the Church belongs the right
    always and everywhere to announce moral principles, including those
    pertaining to the social order, and to make judgments on any human
    affairs to the extent that they are required by the fundamental rights
    of the human person or the salvation of souls. (Compendium of the Social
    Doctrine oif the Church).

    Thus, it is the prophetic duty
    of the Church consistent with its social doctrine to proclaim the Gospel
    into all the world, including the public square. As a moral voice of
    society its intervention in public action or discourse affecting human
    life, the dignity of the person, human rights, the protection of the
    family and marriage as an institution and the promotion of social
    justice is not to meddle but to uphold its role as a compass of faith
    and morals. Politics in a general sense means governance and involves
    action that may harm or benefit man and society. There is thus moral
    significance in governance and it is within the competence of the Church
    to make its voice heard even in the temporal order to ensure justice.

    NOW WE CAN DEBATE WITH WISDOM NOT WITH AD HOMINEMS, THE REFUGE OF THE BIGOTS AND IRRATIONALS.

      ok. now you’ve been heard. now let congress vote

    • Tony Deb

      I have posed this challenge several times to Anti-RH proponents in various fora but none have dared take it up.

      I dare the Catholic Church to spend the billions that it has stashed away in stocks, cash, etc. to feed, clothe, shelter, educate unwanted children born under the following quite restricted conditions:

      1. The unwanted children are Catholic and were born because of the parents ignorance of natural family planning
       2. The children were born despite the parents practice of natural planning methods
      3. The children were born because the husband forced himself on his wife, during the time she is most fertile, when the woman is the most physically attractive.

      I also dare devout and pious lay Catholics to set aside at least 10% of their income for this purpose. 

      If you are unwilling to support this measure, all the flowery, sanctimonious, self-righteous words that you spout are not worth the pixels they are written. Put your money where your mouth is or shut up.

      • Jamm3r

        1. The unwanted children are Catholic and were born because of the parents ignorance if natural family planning.

        —— first how sure we are that those unwanted children are catholic, anyways ignorance of natural family planning is not the fault of the church. it depends on every individual’s perception. the government has a family planning program since marcos time sa simbahan meron ding pre marriage seminar at doon ay itinuturo din ang tamang pagpapamilya, then how sure we are that through this RH Bill people will grasp better understanding on the “family planning” ang isang bagay po kung gustong intindihin ng isang tao maiintindihan pero kung ayaw intindihin hindi talaga maiintindihan. are we also implying couples are mandatory to attend family planning lectures? if not paano matututo ang mga tao kung may RH BIll nga ayaw naman mag attend ng couples.

        2. The children were born despite the parents practice of natural planning method.

        —– this is debatable dahil ang mga nagsasabi naman ay hindi natin alam kung totoo ngang nag practice ng tamang natural planning methods. dahil kung ipagpipilitan ito, meron ding urban legend na nabutis kahit naka condom or naka pills di ba? what i’m saying is this is not an issue at all.

        3. the children were born because the husband forced himself on his wife, during the time she is most fertile, when the woman is the most physically attractive.

        —– what is the issue here? hindi ba marital rape ito at kahit may RH Bill hindi nito mapipigilan ang mga ganitong sitwasyon? dapat dito eh sexual harrasment law hindi RH BIll ang sagot dito sa ganitong kaso. pwede ring marriage counselling kung papayag yung lalaki. so ther again it all depends sa isang individual.

        You dare the Catholic Church to spend billions? nakabisita ka na ba sa mga bahay ampunan? sa mga home for the aged? sa mga lugar kung saan hindi nakakarating ang ilan sa ating mga government officials? the catholic church has nuns and sisters who helped in this institutions without wages. pero kumakain din sila at nagugutom, may basic needs na hindi naman galing sa gobyerno ang ginagamit nilang panggastos. nagdodonate? oo hindi man bilyon pero malalaki rin naman. iyong kanilang mga missions sa mga lugar na hindi nararating ng ibang tao, napupuntahan nila iyon pero kailangan pa bang ipamalita sa lahat ng tao ang ganun? iyan ang pagkaka-iba ng simbahan sa gobyerno ang pagtulong nila ay hindi na kailangan pang ipagmaka-ingay. kasama sa turo ang humbleness kasi. hindi lang naman kasi pati sa pilipinas ang ginagawa nilang pagtulong, kundi sa buong mundo iisipin natin hindi  lang bilyon ang kanilang itinutulong, kaya lang hindi naman pilipinas lang ang dapat tulungan, bagamat tumutulong sila, ang pangunahing responsable sa mga batang kapus palad sa pilipinas ay ang ating gobyerno at tayong mga pilipino na rin. let’s not pour our so much anger in the catholic church, we might be barking at the wrong tree.

      • Tony Deb

        1. Hindi mo nakuha yung logic ng challenge ko sa inyo. Kaya ko rinistrict sa mga Catholics yung proposal hindi dahil puro Katoliko ang mga unwanted children kung hindi dahil sa Katolikio lang may responsibilidad ang  
        Catholic Church. Walang responsibility and Catholic church sa protestante at muslim kaya di niya dapat sagutin ang pagaruga ng mga unwanted children ng mga eto. So binawasan ko na yung bilang ng mga bata na kailangan nyong alagaan. Hindi ka ba masaya nyan.

        2. Kahit kaunti lang ang magiging case pananagutan par rin niyo kung sakaling pumalya. Ang tanong ko sa inyo, meron ba kayong extensive na responsible parenthood campaign na pinapatakbo na binubusahan ninyo ng milyon milyong piso? Yung pera ng Catholic Church inirereserve ata para isettle yung cases ng child molestation and rape. Hundreds of millions of dollars na ang nabayaran ng Catholic Church para isettle ang mga kaso na eto.

        3. Nakapunta ka na ba sa slum or rural area at nakita mo ba kung gaano ka-patriarchal ang mga lalaki doon? Sunod sunuran lang ang babae sa lalaki dahil na rin sa turo ng simbahan. Tingin mo ba makakahindi yung babae kung ipupwersa or “pakiusapan” siyang pumayag makipagtalik during her fertile period. Are you aware that women are most desirable during this period? May asawa ka ba?

        Aware ako sa mga mission ng mga Catholics sa mga mahihirap na lugar sa Pilipinas. Nakasilumuha ko ang marami sa kanila. Para sa akin sila ang mga tunay na Kristiyano, at hindi etong mga bishops na sagana ang buhay at nakatira sa mga air conditioned na kuwarto. Surprise, surprise marami sa mga pare at madre na eto ay naniniwala sa modern means of contraception, pero tumatahimik lang at baka censure.

        —– hindi mo rin nakuha ang logic ng paliwanag ko sa iyo, ke katoliko or any other religious denomination hindi sinisino ng katoliko ang tutulungan, pero hindi dapat isumbat lahat ng pag-aruga ng kapus palad sa katoliko, ano ang silbi ng gobyerno kung ganun? nakakasaya ba ang sagot mo para sumaya  ako?

        —– ayan ka naman eh init na init ka sa pera eh, at puro ka spekulasyon. maglahad ka muna ng konkretong responsibilidad ng simbahan bago mo hingan ng pondo. kahit nga sa gobyerno hindi ka bibigyan ng pondo kung wala kang project. kung nakikinig lang lahat ng tao sa misa at iniintindi ang sinasabi dito, araw araw maririnig mo ang hinahanap mong responsible parenthood campaign. ang hirap yung gusto n’yo lang pakinggan ang gusto n’yong marinig, yung gusting makita ang gusto makita, kapag ipinaliwanag sa inyo hindi paniniwalaan. subukan mo kayang intindihin ang sermon mga pari at hindi yung puro na lang kamalian ang nakikita natin. isa pang tanong, may sumeryoso ba sa aral na ibinigay ng simbahan? kailangan ba lagi ang campaign materials bago ito matawag na programa? ano ba ang responsibilidad ng simbahan? spiritual at morality para sa mga tao, ang responsibilidad ng pag aaruga at pagpapakain ng mga kapus palad ay sa gobyerno pa rin. pasalamat na rin tayo kung katiting man ang tulong ng simbahan.

May asawa ka ba?
         
        —– nakakasiguro ka ba na iyong mga sinasabi mong patriarchal eh nagsisismba? At paano mo nasabing iyon ang turo ng simabahan? nagsisimba ka ba? huwag mo akong tanungin sa mga bagay na baka ikaw mismo ay hindi pa nagagawa ang mga tinatanong mo, pero sa ikaluluwag ng dibdib mo, bago ako nag-asawa ay tumutulong na kami sa mg missions ng madre bilang volunteer catechist  hindi lang sa slum or rural area kundi sa mga lugar na may sakit na halos hindi pinupuntahan ng karaniwang tao. doon sa may estrella sa makati ang convent nila, hindi ko lang sure kung andun pa sina sister paz at sisister leonor ang mother superior noon dun pag napunta ka pakikamusta na lang ako. tatlo na rin ang anak ko na ipinagkatiwala sa akin at niloob ng Diyos.

        —– well good for you na nakasalamuha mo sila, and i wont argue with your opinion on who you’ll consider to be a true christian and not, my only concern is your hatred on the church including its bishops, i have been to cardinal sin’s residence while he was still the cardinal, in mandaluyong and i can never say they are living extravagantly.  and sleeping in an airconditioned room is not a proof of living comfortably, our priest, try to visit our ninong sa kasal in saint pancratius sa laloma si ninong ardie ong, see for yourself kung gaano ka simple ang kanilang tirahan.
         
        as i was saying, cease your hatred in the catholic church, as you may be barking at the wrong tree. God Bless my friend.

      • Tony Deb

        Once again you are skirting the issue and unwilling to address the challenge head on. There many more millions of poor unwanted children in the Philippines than in Vietnam, Thailand, or Indonesia. This is mainly because of the absence of a vigorous family planning program, mainly due to the lobbying of the Catholic Church. These are indisputable facts. Thus, what I’m only asking is that the Catholic Church takes responsibility for its actions and spend the billions that it possesses on a highly targeted segment of society, poor Catholic unwanted children. Is this too much to ask? 

      • Jamm3r

        what issue are you asking ba? na ang simbahan ag maging responsable dahil tutol sila sa isang bill? ano’ng klaseng katwiran yan na kapag ang isang organisasyon o samahan eh salungat sa inihahain na batas eh sila na ang dapat maging responsable positibo man o negatibo ang resulta? eh nakakatawa ka ngang tao sayang lang ang paliwanag ko sa iyo dahil ang utak mo sarado na sobrang kitid pa. ang gusto mo simbahan ang managot sa kalibugan ng mga taong hindi nakikinig sa turo ng simbahan o nang pamahalaan man. sayang lang oras ko sa iyo me pa chalenge chalenge ka pa eh nang sagutin ko isa isa punto por punto ang tanong mo sasabihin mo nililihis ko ang sagot. aminin mo na lang na lihis ang pang-unawa mo at hindi na tumatanggap ng rason dahil sarado at makitid. pagpalain ka ng Diyos.

  • Jamm3r

    tanong lang po paki educate naman po ang lahat, paano po makakatulong sa actual na scenario ang RH BIll para mapigilan ang paglaki ng populasyon? hindi ko po kasi maintindihan kung paano ito isasagawa ng pamahalaan. may nagsasabing libreng gamot may nagsasabing libreng condom. paano nga po ba ito isasagawa para makatulong sa sinasabing problema sa paglaki ng populasyon? salamat po sana ay maibigay po natin ang maayos ang tamang sagot sa simpleng tanong.

    • sked482

      First off, the reduction of the population is not a priority or target of the RH bill and may just be one of its byproducts.

      Here’s the text rom the guiding principles of the RH Bill:

      “10. There shall be no demographic or population targets and the mitigation of the population growth rate is incidental to the promotion of reproductive health and sustainable human development;”

      Having said that, the RH Bill will cause lower population growth by helping couples receive education and assistance on their preferred family planning methods, thereby helping them achieve their desired family size. Helping families achieve their desired family size may translate to overall national reduction of population growth. If you have time, just read through the RH Bill text.

      Text on desired family size:

      “SEC. 20. Ideal Family Size The State shall assist couples, parents and individuals to achieve their desired family size within the context of responsible parenthood for sustainable development and encourage them to have two children as the ideal family size. Attaining the ideal family size is neither mandatory nor compulsory. No punitive action shall be imposed on parents having more than two children.”

      • Jamm3r

        very educational, but is that all? but of course these so called educating and assisting the families had been doing by the government eversince i can remember, there’s family planing program, meron pag population education, even prior to marriage merong tinatawag na seminar and it includes responsible parenthood. so what is the need of an RH BIll if one of it’s main objective as you said is to assist and educate the couples and not population concern? i was thinking kasi how would it have an eventual result of reduction in population kung noon pa eh ginagawa na ito. ano pa ba ang nakatago sa likod ng RH Bill na ito? dinig ko nga kasi na bibigyan daw ng libreng condom ang mag asawa legal man o hindi. ang tanong ko lang naman eh kung totoo nga iyo, araw araw bang bibigyan ng contraceptive or condom ang bawat pamilya? pangalawa, hindi naman sa kabastusan, halimbawa lang nakaramdam ng libido ang isang mag-asawa eh naubusan sila ng condom, ang ibig bang sabihin eh tatakbo muna sila sa health center para humingi ng libreng condom. of course this is  rare case scenario, but what i’m saying is for how long will the government sustain the urge or the filipinos? it may sound funny pero baka sa susunod na deliberation ng national budget eh pinakamalaki ang hingin ng DOH dahil diyan, once ma approve ang RH Bill. please do enlighten me more. thanks.

      • sked482

        It is true that the government has been doing that but as evidenced by surveys on unmet needs and by many families having more children than they desire and can support, it is clearly not enough. The government has been doing education programs and providing help through health centers but this often depends on the whims of the national and local leaders. For example, there was a time when contraceptives were banned from health centers in the city of Manila by the mayor if I remember correctly, which deprived those who wanted or needed it. Also, depending on who’s sitting at congress, RH services can be funded one year and then deprived of funds the next. During the time of GMA, pills were even used as fertilizers, since the national leadership didn’t have the political will to channel these to those who need them. Putting these RH services into a law such as the RH Bill will make the services more organized and regular and will make sure that they get funded and implemented whoever is sitting at the national or local levels, not only for one year, but regularly into the future.

        As for the nitty gritty details, these shall be decided and worked on at the health center with the couple themselves. For example, after knowing all the choices, if a couple decides on exclusively using condoms (I personally think this is very unlikely) and are unable to afford it, they can work out a plan at the health center where the center will provide them with the amount they need. Note that this depends on the couples decision and their ability or inability to buy for themselves. Couples who opt to use natural methods or other methods does not need to receive condoms. This is just an example, as I said the nitty gritty details like these are not spelled out in the bill, but would be worked out with the couples themselves.

      • Jamm3r

         ito nga po ang pinaka main concern dito iyong gritty details. ang bill na ipinapasa ay very general but the gritty details were not clearly take-up yet which i think is very critical and important to discuss as this has been a issue for long now.  para din po kasi iyang pagpapagawa ng bahay o alin mang construction, dapat ang plano ay may detalye and i think the pro RH Bill authors needs to explain this in details sa mga tao. mahirap yung kapag andyan na tsaka na lang iisip ng paraan kung paano aayusin. kasi maging praktikal tayo tutal usapang RH Bill, ang isang mag asawa kapag bago hindi lang dalawa or tatlo kung magtalik yan. at aminin po natin kung saan pa nandoon iyong mga sabihin nating walang trabaho sila pa yung mas maraming mag-anak. sa tingin po ba natin itong mga taong ganito na sa paghahanap ng trabaho ay naging irresponsable, maging responsable kaya silang mag attend ng mga programang gaya ng inihahain ng RH Bill. why i’m saying this kasi sila po ang mas nakakaraming populasyon ngayon sa lungsod ng maynila. at isa pa po, mayroon nga po tayong RH Bill kung saka-sakali, eh kung hindi naman po naiintindihan ng tao gaya ng nasabi ko ano ang magiging silbi nito? di ba babagsak na namn tayo sa depende sa isang indibidual. para sa akin lang, mas maganda ngang pagtuunan ng pansin ng pamahalaan ang korupsyon dahil nasimulan na ito at may maganda nang ibinubunga. dahil ito ang tunay na sagot sa paghihirap ng bayan, alisin ang kurapsyon, hindi man ngayon sa susunod na henerasyon ay mararamdaman ang pagbabago. sa ngayon ang nakikita ko pa lang ipagpaumanhin na ay ang natatagong interest ng mga nagsusulong nitong batas na ito sa magiging magandang epekto sa kanila sa magiging tulong ng mga drug companies at condom companies na mag su-supply once na ma-approve ito. maaring spekulasyon pero masisi mo ba ako kung isipin ko ito lalo na sa kalakaran ng gobyernno? at ang RH Bill hindi naman nito masosolusyunan ang biological needs ng mga taong nakakaramdam ng pangangailangan. kaya ang RH Bill ay condom lang din sa tunay na problema ng bayan sa aking pananaw.  kahit sampu pa ang anak kung may kakayahan magpamilya ang isang tao walang problema, kahit walang RH Bill di ba? so ano ba talaga ang dapat solusyunan?

      • Elle_Philippi

        Just some insights: 

        1. Actually, kung tataas man ang hihingin ng DOH, majority dito ay para sa PhilHealth. I hope you notice naman na talagang nag improve ang mga benefits at coverage ng PhilHealth ngayon (covered na nga pati some forms of cancer and chronic diseases). 
        Ang PhilHealth membership ay pwedeng gamitin ng mahihirap to gain access to a full range of modern family planning methods on a no-balance billing. Kung gusto ng couple na mag-spacing on her next pregnancy, PhilHealth shall pay for full cost of family planning. (Sec. 7) 

        What is better is in Sec. 14 is that PhilHealth can now be used for Serious and Life-Threatening Reproductive Health Conditions including HIV, AIDS, and majority of female reproductive diseases. 

        DOH budget will also go to paying pro-bono health workers

        2. I just got married and there was no seminar at all (pinag bayad lamang ako for the fee) dahil walang lecturer. Hopefully, sa RH Bill, ensured ang age-appropriate Reproductive and Sexual Education from Grade IV to 4th Year (Sec. 16)3. RH bill would require reproductive health workers (including obgyn) to render 48 hours of probono services to our indigent citizens, especially pregnant adolescents.  (Sec. 22)4. Pagdating sa provision and distribution of condoms and other supplies, it is the LGUs who are supposed to propose a budget allotment based on:a) no. of women of repro age and couples who wants to space or limit their childrenb) contraceptive prevalence rate, by type of method used andc) cost of family planning supplies.My interpretation of this is that the supplies will be available at all public health facilities. 5. RH Bill is more of a measure to actually lessen the incidences ng Maternal and Infant Mortality since ang hindi tamang pagplano ng panganganak at ang kakulangan sa facilities for reproductive health ay isa sa malaking causes nito.

    how can the summation of this bill be responsible parenthood? How are you teaching these people responsible parenthood when you’re giving them a legal reason not to be? You’re basically giving them fish instead of teaching them how to fish.

    RH bill will only affect the poorest of the poor.Middle class with jobs and above will be less affected.Tumingin ka sa paligid mo kung sino pa yung me mga trabaho at maykaya konti lang ang anak.RH bill will help our nation a lot.Damasos are enraged because their clout on helpless and hopeless faithfuls will diminished.85% of the mature thinking Filipinos approve RH bill.THe remaining 15% are mongoloid filipinos who think reproduction is a matter of chance and not a matter of choice!!!

    Dapat matuto tayong manindigan sa inaakala nating tama at hindi sa dikta ng simbahan o sino mang politiko.Dahil sa bandang huli tayo rin naman ang mahihirapan sa usaping pamilya at hindi sila.Choice lang naman ang RH at di sapilitan.Kung ayaw mo e di huwag mo.Ito ang fair sa lahat!Mga tatay ko 13 sila magkakapatid walang nakapagtapos,nnay ko 9 sila magkakapatid, 1 lang nakapagtapos.Kaya kami 4 magkakapatid tig 2 lang mga anak with the help of contraceptives.Tatay ko laborer dati, ako professional na nagiging negosyante, sa trend na ito anak ko negosyante na magiging malaking negosyante.Ako di ko na kailangan ang RH kasi nasubukan ko na ito 13 years ago pa at I can see the big big difference!For me this law is undebatable!Wag kayo  maniwala na sa panahong ito dadami ang isang pirasong isda at tinapay sa hapag nyo para sa 6 o 8 o 10 nyong mga anak.

       Many
    concerns have taken the Church [priests and bishops]  away from the serious psycho spiritual  formative aspect of pastoral care. Concern
    about investmens, cars,  personal financial
    security [single
    nga sila – and everything is provided and overly provided],
    material[ism]
    over concern for self maintenance or parish, building maintenance –  make them mere busy bodies and on Sundays-  clanging cymbals and  noisy gongs,… no time to study, reflect and
    pray.  You will know them by their long half
    cooked, or unprepared, scattered and no focus,  devoid of formative substance homilies they deliver. [They havebecome show biz people].

     [I hate to say this,… many times the Church appears
    to treat the faithful like small children, maybe the Church wants the faithful
    to remain kids, she does not want her children to grow in age, in wisdom and
    grace… informed and formed… that,  being
    informed and formed in the biblical/Christian teachings, they can make good
    choices].

    Bigyan ng inpormasyon na maaring isubo ng mga tao,
    nguyain ng maigi, lunukin at tunawin at mapakinabangan  nila “members of the Body of Christ”… at
    makakatulong sa kanila upang to grow in knowledge, in age, in wisdom and
    grace…and empowered to make an enlightened choice.

    RH Bill History:

     
    What is the NSSM 200 and how is it related to the RHB?

    The National Security Study
    Memorandum (NSSM) 200, was a top-secret report (believed to be drafted
    by Secretary of State Henry Kissenger) compiled by the National Security
    Council in 1974 entitled “Implications of Worldwide Population Growth
    for the U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” It states that population
    growth in the developing world threatens U.S. security because nations
    with growing populations will yield significant political power and
    influence, that the U.S. and its Allies have a vital interest in
    strategic materials which have to be extracted from developing
    countries, and a large population growth in relatively disadvantaged
    nations jeopardizes U.S. investments.

    It recommended an aggressive
    population control program –all-out abortion, contraception,
    sterilization in countries with growing population in exchange for
    attractive financial assistance package and other funding programs
    coursed through the UN agencies, the World Bank, and private foundations
    of giant multinational corporations as fronts.

    Part of the strategy is to
    convince heads of government of these countries to adopt population
    policies against their own people and US diplomats have been directed
    “to be alert to opportunities for expanding our assistance efforts and
    for demonstrating to their leaders the consequences of rapid population
    growth and the benefits of actions to reduced fertility.” The NSSM-200
    was assailed in the Bucharest Population Conference of l974 by both
    Latin American and East European nations including the Holy See.

    NSSM-200 technically however,
    remains in place as the US policy in population, only the guidelines may
    differ from one administration to another.

    The report identified 13
    countries of “special US political and strategic interest” that have
    been targeted for population control –India, Brazil, Egypt, Nigeria,
    Indonesia, the PHILIPPINES, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Mexico, Thailand,
    Turkey, Ethiopia and Colombia.

    It is clear that the RHB
    proponents taking direction from a foreign power are merely adhering to
    the U.S. global agenda on population reduction in 3rd world countries
    which includes the Philippines.

    This is why for so many years
    the proponents have been attempting to pass a birth control program
    deodorized as reproductive health bill.

    • LAMBFORGOVERNOR

       get some sleep dude.. you dont even make sense…

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

     What specific provisions of the RHB are objectionable?

    The requirement for a mandatory
    RH and Sexuality education from Grade V to 4th year high school in
    public and private schools which includes “the use and application of
    natural and modern family planning methods” and “RH health and sexual
    rights (Sec. 13 RHB 96) This is a coercive provision and undermines the
    parents primary right to educate their children. This also infringe on
    the Principle of Subsidiarity.

    It seeks to penalize those who
    will speak against the RH law by way of “malicious disinformation” (Sec.
    22 RHB 96). Who determines what is malicious or not. This is oppressive
    and offends the Constitutional guarantee of free speech

    It proposes two children per
    family as an ideal size (Sec. 17 RHB 96). A backward step in the light
    of recent demographic reality of aging populations of many countries
    including neighboring Singapore, South Korea, Japan who had a two-child
    policy before. It is doubtful if they can reverse their fast declining
    people.

    The bill compels employers with
    at least 200 employees to provide them free RH services, supplies (e.g.
    condoms, pills, IUDs), surgical procedure (e.g. tubal ligation and
    vasectomy), under threat of imprisonment or fine or both for failure to
    so provide them (Sec 18 and 22 RHB 96). Why should it be the burden of
    the employer if his security guard is going to a date and pay for his
    condom.

    Tubal ligation and vasectomy are forms of mutilation and is offensive to the Principle of Totality in Bioethics.

    The bill classifies
    contraceptives such as pills, IUDs, injectables, condoms, as essential
    medicines where billions of pesos of public funds will be used for its
    purchase (Sec. 9 RHB 96). Pregnancy is not a disease to be treated or
    Fertility a kind of malady. Why not spend the money for improvement of
    hospitals, real medicines, schoolbulding or salaries of government
    doctors and nurses.

    Only the multinational drug companies will benefit here.

    The bill violates the healthcare
    provider’s conscience by compelling him to refer a person seeking RH
    services he believes to be immoral to another healthcare provider under
    penalty for failure to make the referral ( Sec 22 a{3} RHB 96)

    The bill compels the healthcare
    service provider, whether private or public to perform reproductive
    health procedures (e.g. tubal ligation and vasectomy) on a person of
    legal age or, if married person even without the consent of the other
    spouse. (Sec 22 a{2} RHB 96)

    Is it true that the bill if enacted will prevent resort to abortion according to its proponents?

    On the contrary, in fact the
    bill uses the term “reproductive rights” which is used in many other
    context as inclusive of abortion. Hilary Clinton admitted that
    “reproductive health” encompasses abortion. Every country that went on
    the contraceptive mode ended up in abortion.

    Malcolm Potts, former medical
    director of the International Planned Prenthood Federation said in 1973 :
    “As people turn to contraception. There will be a rise, not a fall in
    the abortion rate.”

    Since most artificial means of
    birth control have high failure rates, resort to abortion is most likely
    to be the alternative. Contraception is the slippery slope to Abortion.

    Can one claim to be an authentic Catholic at the same time embrace and support beliefs contrary to the teaching of the Church?

    Unity is one of the four marks
    of the Catholic Church and such unity is also assured by the “visible
    bonds of communion: the profession of faith received from the
    apostles..” (CCC 815). Hence, Pope John Paul ll exhorts:

    “No damage must be done to the
    harmony between faith and life: the unity of the Church is damaged not
    only by Christians who reject or distort the truths of faith but also by
    those who disregard the moral obligations to which they are called by
    the Gospel.” VS 26).

    In sanctioning a so-called
    Catholic group in the U.S. aggressively supporting abortion, the U.S.
    Bishops’ Conference in a definitive statement said that “because of its
    purposes and activities deliberately contradict essential teaching of
    the Catholic faith, the Catholics for a Free Choice merits no
    recognition or support as Catholic organization .”

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

     Former senator Juan Miguel Zubiri, meanwhile, said there is no need
    to pass a law on reproductive health as the provisions of the bill are
    already contained in the Magna Carta of Women.

    “We don’t need to legislate RH. The local government’s participation
    is already provided for in the Magna Carta of Women,” Zubiri, who
    co-authors the bill, said.

    “We put in Magna Carta the need of women and family, not only
    pregnant mothers, for medical purposes of government,” Zubiri said.

    • LAMBFORGOVERNOR

       real boring

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

     RH Bill promotes cancerous abortifacients and why it shdn’t be passed –

    By seeking to implement a massive
    distribution of contraception most of which are really abortifacients,
    it will put at great risk and endanger the health of both the mother and
    the unborn child . This is contrary to the Constitutional injunction
    “to protect the life of the mother and the life of the unborn from
    conception” (Sec. 12 Art ll).

    By compelling healthcare
    providers to refer the person seeking RH services he believes to be
    immoral and against his conscience to another healthcare provider
    willing to do the service sought violates the Constitutional guarantee
    of “the free exercise and enjoyment of religious profession” (Sec. 5 Art
    111).

    Since it has been medically
    established that use of oral contraceptives and devices pose danger and
    harm to the health of women with its side effects some causing cervical
    cancer, breast cancer, and lately it was discovered also to cause liver
    cancer, not to mention that many popular pills are abortifacients
    preventing implantation of the zygote in the uterus causing the abortion
    of the unborn. This is directly opposed to the Constitutional mandate
    “that the State shall protect consumers from trade malpractices and from
    substandard or hazardous products (Sec. 9 Art XV1)

    • LAMBFORGOVERNOR

       getting boring

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

     Through RH Bill, instead of teaching every Filipino family
    about “responsible parenthood”, we are teaching our people, especially
    the poor, to be dependent to the government (including business and
    health sectors) who will supply their condoms, contraceptives and other
    RH services;

    What is responsible parenthood? I think, a separate article should be
    written to further discuss this. But as a gist and in relation to this
    bill, I believe that it will teach the other way around.

    Instead of making couples as responsible in rearing their family,
    this bill will teach them, particularly the poor,  to be dependent to
    the government (including business and health sectors) in providing
    their RH services.

    Responsible Parenthood should educate couples how to become prepared
    in facing challenges of being future parents NOT to spoon-feed them or
    provide FREE RH services in expense of the tax payers’ money. Poor
    parents to become responsible must have good jobs to start with- with
    decent income to sustain the needs of their family members NOT to
    provide them CONDOMS and CONTRACEPTIVES, which are temporary solutions
    to the over population problem.

       you dont hear this guy offering to raise and educate the unwanted children of the poor… proof he is all talk and no walk…

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

     RH BILL IS EVIL AND STUPID HENCE SHOULD BE KILLED

    Yes, we can help the poor all we want. But we cannot be charitable by
    getting money from other people through taxes and by having the
    business, health and education sectors under state control in the name
    of helping the marginalised sector of the society.

    If the government is really sincere in helping curbing out poverty,
    it must work its ways on how to INCREASE THE AVERAGE FAMILY INCOME OF
    EVERY FILIPINOS, instead, and NOT in WASTING our TAXES to buy CONDOMS
    and CONTRACEPTIVES! Why the government can’t focus in PROVIDING JOBS for
    its PEOPLE? INCREASE INVESTORS’ TRUST? AND INCREASE ITS COMPETITIVENESS
    IN THE WORLD MARKET?

    I am a licensed forester and I learned from my professors during my
    college years about their frustrations on how the government has
    overlooked the agriculture and forestry sectors in terms of curbing
    poverty in this country using our available rich and diverse resources.

    UNLESS lawmakers will GUARANTEE NO CORRUPTION and it WILL ALLEVIATE
    POVERTY in a drastic way, will I believe that they were sincere in their
    intentions to help the poor. For now, forgive me, but I believe this
    bill is EVIL and STUPID.

    I believe that there is a large amount of lobbying money behind this.
    That this will encourage immorality, abortion, corruption, will
    legalise stealing money from the tax payers and will violate our
    constitutional rights- the main reasons why this bill is EVIL!

    It is STUPID because 1. It is just a waste of our money (to
    distribute condoms and contraceptives without assurance that recipients
    will use these) and 2. It makes us believe that by giving out these for
    free and also by teaching our Grade 5 students about sex education will
    solve our country’s problem of over population and poverty.

    RH Bill is evil and stupid, the main reason why this should be
    killed! We have existing good laws that only proper implementation is
    needed. If we are really concerned about the welfare of the poor (and
    women), why we don’t provide them DECENT JOBS with GOOD SALARIES? Why
    not go after big fishes and collect their taxes so that we may have
    higher revenues? Why not protect our FORESTS (oceans, and others with
    ecological importance)? Why not manage our lands well, and distribute
    them properly (not only in the ownership of the few elites) so that we
    may increase our resources? Why not implement MORAL RECOVERY PROGRAM,
    instead?

    Let us stop war in Mindanao! Let us provide the poor with greater
    access to basic services! Let us educate our people but not by teaching
    sex education to our young children!

    The poor does not NEED RH BILL! We don’t need this to be well informed! We can maintain the status quo without this!

    If RH Bill is killed, we will still have access to every promises
    lawmakers used in this bill to DECEIVE the people. What do I mean? We
    can still enjoy the freedom of choice we want: there will still be
    promotion and protection of gender equality; protection of the elements
    of the reproductive health care and ensure massive and sustained
    information drive on responsible parenthood.

    • Tony Deb

      So you believe the other Christian Churches — United Church of Christ, Episcopal Church, Methodist Church, Baptists, Evangelicals, etc. are evil and stupid because they support the RH bill? Quit with your holier-than-thou attitude and immerse yourself with the poor and see how many of them struggle trying to support a family of 5 to more than 10 children. Teach them how to practice natural family planning methods if you feel so passionate about the whole thing, but stop pontificating from your armchair.

     ”SATAN IS THE FATHER OF ALL LIES

    Last night, I am discussing this RH bill with my cousin and my
    boyfriend. But before I go to sleep, I really was alarmed how people
    were deceived by its promises. I never felt so compelled about writing
    something such as this article. I felt that there is this need to oppose
    the bill- in my own way (which is writing). So, I prayed that God may
    give me the wisdom and the courage to write about  this issue.

    Every time I am confused, depressed, and enthusiastic about something
    or before I make any important decisions in my life, I do pray and ask
    for His message. I believe that His message was written in the Bible-
    that any answer to my prayer is found in its pages.

    After I prayed, I flipped over the pages of the Bible and this particular verse in John struck me:

    “But you are exactly what your father does.”

    “Don’t accuse us of having someone else as our father!” they said. “We just have one father, and he is God.”

    “Jesus answered: If God were your Father, you would love me,
    because I came from God and only from him. He sent me. I did not come on
    my own. Why can’t you understand what I am talking about? Can’t you
    stand to hear what I am saying? Your father is the devil, and you do
    exactly what he wants. He has always been a murderer and a liar. There
    is nothing truthful about him. He speaks on his own, and everything he
    says is a lie. Not only is he a liar himself, but he is also the father
    of all lies. Every thing I have told you is true, and you still refuse
    to have faith in me. Can any of you accuse me of sin? If you cannot, why
    won’t you have faith in me? After all, I am telling you the truth.
    Anyone who belongs to God will listen to his message. But you refuse to
    listen, because you don’t belong to God.”- John 8: 41-47

    I would like to quote one of the intelligent bloggers (aka jlocute) I
    read online. This is in relation to the topic that Satan is a great
    deceiver and many have led astray because of his use of deceiving and
    encouraging words.

    “We are really at the end of time era. These are all Satan’s
    works. We should be aware how he works. As he said, ‘I pretend to love
    men in order to destroy them; serve them in order to ruin them; deceive
    them and help them in order to pervert them and draw them into these my
    hellish regions.’”

    To continue, jlocute emphasized that,

    “People have been persuaded by the devil that they are entitled
    to have sex when they choose, rejecting any unwanted life that may
    result. The enemy may tell (us): ‘that God is too demanding and
    unreasonable. If we distributed more condoms, we would not have disease
    or the need to abort babies. And that it is God’s fault (if our
    population booms or poverty prevails) because God’s Church is against
    the use of condoms’.”

    For jlocute,

    “Sexual intercourse, by its nature and intent is potentially (a)
    life giving act. This is God’s version. (But) the enemy’s version is
    that sex can be closed to give life and used for physical pleasure only.
    Enemy’s version of sex is selfish, emotionally dangerous and bad for
    humanity. The enemy offers an answer to this too, and led souls to avoid
    consequences by offering widespread contraception and abortion. Both
    men and women are now told that sinful sexual behaviours are allowable
    and acceptable. God intends that a man and woman enter a blessed union
    (through marriage) and then share their sexuality with one another.
    (Using this bill) the devil is mocking God because he depicts God’s
    purpose. He is laughing because many led astray on this sin.”

        Instead of the humble lamb attibutes you  manifest arrogance like the devil himself. If you are running for governor I recommend you run in Judea the post once held by Pontius Pilate. By attributing the Catholic faith to satan, the Church which is the Body of the Lord Jesus  your blaspemy will rebound on you. 
        You crucify Christ again just because of the RH bill. You have no difference with the devil who on the last moment tempted the crucifed Christ by saying, ‘  if you are the Son of God come down from the cross and save yourself.” The moral issue in the RH bill is that the government is trying to pass a law on legalizing handouts of contraceptives and condums that does not only compromises God’s will on creation and man’s full trust on God’s grace and mercy but ultimately stops the human Filipino mind from thinking about God’s role in creation and of family’s divine sustenance. 
        When God created Adam and Eve God’s command was ,’Go forth and multiply’ The word of God is absolute and include no compromises. And in the end stage of man’s creation God saw that it was GOOD. Still no other compromises. By the passage of the RH bill the absolute word of God’s word on creation is supressed and the devils design to stop God’s creation is certified by this government. Because it is only not about the contraceptives and condums handouts issue replacing God’s absolute word but also faith and full trust in God’s providence.
        Just one scenario, suppose a couple in exercising ‘responsible parenthood’ will say let’s do sex but babies should come later so let’s use contraceptives and condums. Then later on they wanted to have a child so they will say let’s us stop taking contraceptives and the use of condom and ask God for a child. Which is moral? And this scenario will go on and on.
         Morality is based on the God’s absolute word. Let us not infringe on His word by passing the RH bill which is a cheap shot by the devil.No human reason can be above God’s laws on creation and His word.

        There is no adequate explanation for those who would not believe. No explanation is necessary for those who believe in His word. But beware not to fall into God’s hands by trying to stop His creation that He saw was GOOD.

      You’ve just proved the old adage that even the devil quotes scripture. Seriously, all other  major religions accept modern family planning and informed choice. And all other Catholic countries have happily put medieval dark age bishops and right wingers in their place with progressive policies. So keep quoting scrpture while the rest of the country leaves you in wallowing in your incantations.

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

    To all PRO RH Bill: Pls refute the following arguments so we will know from where you are coming!

    POSITION PAPER ON THE RH BILLby individual faculty, students and alumni of the University of the Philippines*

    As
    faculty members, students and alumni of the University of the
    Philippines, we state here the bases of our objection to the
    consolidated Reproductive Health bill that is pending in Congress.
     Given the secular background of UP education, we put forward arguments from reason, to wit:1. Population is not an obstacle to development.
    The bills assume that a nation’s population hinders its development
    that is why they push for the promotion of a two-child policy, massive
    distribution of contraceptives, sex education (to acquaint young people
    with contraception), and sterilization, all of which make use of
    taxpayers’ money.  However, as early as 1966, Nobel Prize winner Simon
    Kuznets’ research has shown that there is insignificant empirical association between population growth rates and output per capita (economic growth).
    Rather, it is the rate at which technology grows and the ability of the
    population to employ these new technologies efficiently and widely that
    permit economic progress. Kuznets saw that the basic obstacles to
    economic growth arise from the limited capabilities of the institutions
    (political, social, legal, cultural, economic) to adjust.  He argued
    instead that a more rapid population growth, if properly managed, will promote economic development through
    a positive impact on the society’s state of knowledge. His findings
    have been confirmed by similar studies by the US National Research
    Council (1986), the UN Population Fund Consultative Meeting of
    Economists (1992), Eric Hanushek and Ludger Wößmann (2007), among others.2. The government has to channel limited funds to job creation and education. The latest report of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) entitled Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2010 notes
    that the “middle class has increased rapidly in size and purchasing
    power as strong economic growth in the past two decades has helped
    reduce poverty significantly and lift previously poor households into
    the middle class.”  Two factors were reported to drive the creation and sustenance of a middle class: a) stable, secure, well-paid jobs with good benefits, and b) higher education. And so, why
    not create more bills that will strengthen these two factors instead of
    channeling our limited funds to contraception and sex education?3. Fertility rates in the Philippines are progressively decreasing.
    Our Total Fertility Rate (TFR) has declined by more than 50% in less
    than 50 years: from an average rate of 7 in 1960 to an average rate of
    3.1 in 2008.  Our TFR is expected to reach the replacement
    level of 2.1 in 2025 without massive government intervention like the
    passing of a population control or RH bill. The passing of an RH bill
    will only accelerate this.  The latest November issue of
    The Economist entitled “Japan’s burden” spells out the effects of an
    aging population and it would be foolhardy for us as a nation to push
    ourselves deliberately towards that direction. In 2004, Joseph Chamie,
    Director of the UN Population Division, reported that 60 countries have
    TFRs below 2.1 which means that they will eventually experience decline
    and aging.  He asserted that the efforts of these countries
    to raise fertility rates will not be enough to bring them back to
    replacement levels. Many of these countries are now asking their people
    to have more children. Why then are our legislators thinking of cutting
    down our best asset, our people? Should this push through, future
    generations of Filipinos will be forced to pay for the mistake of
    government’s intervention to manipulate a decrease in our population and suffer its ill effects as already experienced by other countries. 
    4. The government has to channel limited resources to address the leading causes of death. In the latest available Mortality Country Fact Sheet (2006)
    of the World Health Organization on the Philippines, the following were
    listed as the main causes of death: lower respiratory tract infections,
    ischaemic heart disease, tuberculosis, hypertensive heart disease,
    perinatal conditions, cerebrovascular disease, violence, diarrhoeal
    diseases, diabetes mellitus and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.  Can
    we not channel our limited resources towards curbing these diseases—and
    violence—instead of using them for contraception and sterilization?
     5. Condoms are not a wise investment.
    We have the lowest incidence of HIV cases after Bangladesh in the ADB
    report mentioned above, whereas Thailand, which has been regarded as the
    model in condom promotion, has the highest. European epidemiologist Dr.
    Jokin de Irala refers to “risk-compensation” as the reason for higher HIV-AIDS incidences when condoms are promoted. Moreover,
    human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, by far the most common STD and a
    risk factor for cervical cancer among other diseases, is not prevented
    by condoms. HPV spreads through skin-to-skin contact, unlike AIDS, and
    condoms cannot cover all possible infected skin—a fact that is not
    commonly known. Why spend millions to buy condoms when they are
    shown to increase incidences of STDs? A government-sponsored nationwide
    condom distribution will only fatten the pockets of condom
    manufacturers.6. Oral
    Contraceptive Pills (OCPs) have been classified by the International
    Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as Group 1 carcinogens. OCP use
    has been associated with an increased risk of premenopausal breast
    cancer in general (an increment of 19%) and across various patterns of
    OCP use, with the highest risk observed among those who use OCPs for 4
    or more years before their first pregnancy (an increment of 52%),
    according to a 2006 meta-analysis of over 34 studies dating back to the
    1980s.  Corroborating these data was the landmark 2002 randomized
    controlled trial by the Women Health’s Initiative which pointed to a 26%
    higher risk of breast cancer for post-menopausal women who had received
    hormone treatment in addition to 41% more risk of cerebrovascular
    disease, 29% more risk of myocardial infarction, and 112% more risk of
    pulmonary embolism. Another study by Moreno et al. in the Lancet also
    points to an increased risk of cervical cancer with OCP use. And lastly,
    OCPs have also been shown to increase the risk of cardiovascular
    diseases, especially venous thrombosis and ischemic stroke. Will our government legislate a bill that will use taxpayers’ money to further expose women to all these risks?
     Our main argument boils down to this: that it is the State’s duty to order society by promoting the well-being of its citizens. Thus, it is a disservice to legislate what constitutes harm to its people.
    We pointed but a few of the studies showing the harmful effects of
    contraception to society, the family, the youth and women’s health.  While
    it is true that the State cannot stop people from using contraception,
    since they may personally choose to expose themselves to its risks, it is not the State’s job to facilitate access to what is harmful. What
    the government should do is craft laws that prevent people from harming
    themselves or more positively phrased, help them develop themselves and
    society.  We urge the legislators to dump the contentious and flawed Reproductive Health bill and to pass
    more bills strengthening the Filipino family, protecting its citizens
    against the risks of contraception, defending the scientific fact that
    conception begins at fertilization, providing essential medicines for
    the main causes of death, making quality education more accessible to
    Filipinos, and providing more jobs. For the love of our country,

       Hi Jeremiah_Che Guevara, please identify clearly what is the group of U.P. faculty, alumni and students that you are representing. I am quite sure you will be disowned.

    • Harvey Diaz

      How selective again — The UP School of Economics, and 3 Secretaries of Health, the UN, ADB and World Bank categorically state that large family sizes and the inability of families to plan according to their means increases poverty incidence and social risks.  Total Fertility rate has gone down in Classes A-B because of contraceptive use, while the poorer classes cannot afford these means, still have high rates, while your Catholic lip service for NFP doesn’t work at all and keeps them poorere and breeding like rabbits. Your arguments have been bandied about and have been debunked in all other countries, including in all other Catholic countries and the Philippines is going to do the same.

      If properly managed, this is a tall order. Do you have better ideas how to properly manage the wall to wall of people in Philippines? I am sure the Catholic Church does not know any better too. So SHUT UP !!!

     2. The government has to channel limited funds to job creation and education. The latest report of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) entitled Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2010 notes

    reduce poverty significantly and lift previously poor households into
    the middle class.”  Two factors were reported to drive the creation and sustenance of a middle class: a) stable, secure, well-paid jobs with good benefits, and b) higher education. And so, why
    not create more bills that will strengthen these two factors instead of
    channeling our limited funds to contraception and sex education?

    • LAMBFORGOVERNOR

       the sky is falling…

    • upupperclassman

      The government is already channeling the limited funds to education. We are still lacking in classrooms and teachers. Do you know why? There are simply too many people in Philippines. Official statistics said we are near 100 millions, we are actually way beyond. You talk like you are living in ivory tower. COME DOWN!

       habitual liar…

    • upupperclassman

       Fertility rate is decreasing in Philippines? Where did you get your figures? I hope not supplied by some U.P. institution. Stop talking nonsense.

      • Michael Paras

         It is actually decreasing. The thing is, our growth rate has been stagnating and hovering at around 2% annually. That means we’re almost twice above the world average of 1.1%. So we are growing faster than most other countries. 100 million now and counting.

      • Garote

        Those data are available with our local and national gov’t health agencies. My God you should call yourself lolowerclassman or dropout.

    • Michael Paras

       Fertility rate is at 3.15. World average is 2.1. Meaning, our child producing women generates at least 1 more baby than what is ideal for most Filipinos (2, according to PopCom). That’s a staggering figure, even though 1 may look minute.

    • Harvey Diaz

      very selective — we are among the countries with the highest HIV infection rates and are among the highest rates (1 of 7 countries, where others are going down) for the last decade since your favorite President GMA brownosed the clergy and vice versa. HPV  can be prevented by vaccines so go figure. The RH bill will help provide education and informed choice which is better than the ignorance your kind is perpetuating by keeping the status quo, where at risk people and the poorest families have no access to information or safe methods.  The Pope himself admitted condoms were useful for prevfenting HIV transmission. This is UN and DOH latest  data and others will check this for themselves beyond your propaganda.  And, a lack of choice and education which is what your Bishops want will fatten the church’s pockets and pews from more unplanned births.

       More BS….

    • Michael Paras

       Cigarettes can also cause cancer. So is burnt pork. As for the other health risks, like I said earlier, even vaccines can be harmful to your health. Pills are poison. Even your pain relievers when ingested improperly or combined with other drugs can cause harm to your body. Does that mean we stop producing them and go all natural?

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

     Our main argument boils down to this: that it is the State’s duty to order society by promoting the well-being of its citizens. Thus, it is a disservice to legislate what constitutes harm to its people.

      Actually, you’re ignoring the latest studies including the Lancet’s in 2010 which is the largest study of women for over 20 years and it shows that oral contraceptives reduce cancer risk and extend lives. You and your mischievous zealots have lost the  battle everywhere else with all other countries, including all other Catholic ones who’ve used comprehensive science to adopt family planning policies and screen these methods. The Philippines will pry itself from the Vatican once and for all. People are smart enough to do the research themselves and see through your half-truths and whole lies.

        Garote, I won’t spam and do the work for you. Go to the MulatPinoy website, and all the metastudies with citations have been outlined there, and even leads to more research.

Tamad ka lang and you don’t want to look at the facts as other Catholics in other countries have done — and put their clergy pharisees in their proper place.

    • UniTasker

      Greater harm has come from the imposition of Catholic religious dogma into the role of the state

    • Michael Paras

      Not even one of those who signed the paper earned his/her degree as a physician or who can practice medicine. Physics, game economics, computer science? They are not credible enough to fully know and understand what they have written. How can they produce the assumption and conclusion that the contraceptives (exclusively pills, as condoms I imagine isn’t poison) that will be handed out by the government is harmful to the people who will use them?

      Every pill/medicine can be harmful to the health of a person. That’s a universal truth. Even vaccines have been known to cause deaths. That’s why there will be amendments/deliberations to be made by the lawmakers to determine what is safe (note: even the word safe means there’s minute possibility that it can harm the person who ingests it, like every other medicine out there) to use.

      Edit: Actually one is a physician. Still, they made a sweeping generalization and poorly made conclusion that contraceptives are harmful to the people, when truth be told, every pill out there can be harmful to some degree. That’s why you don’t OD on them right? Or don’t take them when you’re allergic to them. Even the simplest pain reliever can be harmful if taken with other drugs.

      Well research and comprehensively written, brother Jeremiah! Now after reading your essay,  these 70% of our fellow Filipinos, who are pro-RH bill, would still support this evil bill, I hope the wrath of God will only fall on them, and not on us. PNoy, the 2 senators Cayetanos, unthinking Lagman, those judas-loving lawmakers who supported and authored the RH bill should now feel ashamed for being uncovered as paid-hacks of US and Pharmaceutical companies. To those congressmen hiding their names, you are cowards. If you honestly believed it’s for the welfare of the Filipino mothers and babies, why are you hiding your identity? 

      • Harvey Diaz

        Read the UP School of Economics Paper, the ADB, Mulat Pinoy, and Ateneo Faculty, from all diverse orientations. And kindly research on the “UP Names” — they are all right wing Catholics using the iskolar ng bayan title to disguise their narrow mindedness.

        Not really, buddy.
        Not even one of those who signed the paper earned his/her degree as a
        physician or is qualified to practice medicine. Physics, game economics,
        computer science? They are not credible enough to fully know and
        understand what they have written. How can they produce the assumption
        and conclusion that the contraceptives (exclusively pills, as condoms I
        imagine isn’t poison) that will be handed out by the government is
        harmful to the people who will use them?

        Every pill/medicine can be harmful to the health of a person. That’s a
        universal truth. Even vaccines have been known to cause deaths. That’s
        why there will be amendments/deliberations to be made by the lawmakers
        to determine what is safe (note: even the word safe means there’s minute
        possibility that it can harm the person who ingests it, like every
        other medicine out there) to use.

        Edit: Actually one is a physician. Still, they made a sweeping generalization and poorly made conclusion that contraceptives are harmful to the people, when truth be told, every pill out there can be harmful to some degree. That’s why you don’t OD on them right? Or don’t take them when you’re allergic to them. Even the simplest pain reliever can be harmful if taken with other drugs.

      well researched and wrath of God will fall on them are quite contradictory, and the sign of a very disturbed mind. Read the position papers by the UP School of Economics, the meta-papers by the World Bank, Mulat Pinoy, ADB. Not just selective Opus Dei echonomist selective research. And when you start calling out names, please look at who your Bishops and ‘prolifers’ have supported all these years, standing quietly by when all this corruption and evil went on – the Nazis, pedophiles, GMA, Corona, and their sordid ‘holy Cathoic servants’.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/4NDRNR4NH2Q4EXS7TMWEEAUWGE Pope

    @Jeremiah_CheGuevara:disqus
    I will see your 14 signatories, and raise you:

    241 faculty members of Ateneo de Manila and University of the Philippines University who voiced out support for RH Bill:

    “our studied and collective opinion is that House Bill 4244 is a vital piece of legislation. Its passage will mandate policies which will save women’s and men’s lives, improve infant survival, enhance young people’s health and well-being, and enable couples and individuals to make responsible decisions in planning their families.”

    Oh and I guess you didn’t do your research “well enough”. Otherwise you’d have found out that this position paper had already been debunked. I do admire your eco-friendly attitude by recycling a position paper that’s over a year old.

    I would post the full rebuttals here, but unlike you, I happen to know that spamming is rude.

    However, for your enlightenment you can google:  “rh bill anti-rh postion lies distortions and straw men“. I think the third result from the top that has a full text. Like I said, this is a really old paper, and the rebuttal had been posted and re-posted several times already.

    Oh and while you’re at it, I’m still waiting for somebody to refute the position of the 30 UP Economists who strongly support the RH Bill.

    RH Bill man… it’s gonna be law!

    • Garote

      If you have all these researches of the 241 Ateneo faculty members and the 30 UP Economists to prove a “strong case” for the passage of the RH bill, why then did the pro-RH bill congressmen railroad the congressional hearing prematurely and terminated the debate. It’s a sign that the pro-RH bill’s position was very weak. I believe the pro-RH congressmen have the same researches you have to back up for the passage of the bill. Because of their railroading, it would seem that these researches of he Ateneo faculty and UP economists are questionable and they stand on shaky grounds for these congressmen to hastily terminate the debate, the only time the public can hear both sides’ positions. I doubt that researches you’ve mentioned can debunk the position paper posted by Jeremiah.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/4NDRNR4NH2Q4EXS7TMWEEAUWGE Pope

        Isang taon nang tumatakbo yung debates. Railroading pa ba yun?
        You call it weakness, I call it Political Will.

        If it’s position is weak, then why do you suppose the RH Bill has amassed such a wide and ever growing support? From various sectors of society. Groups from the Academe, Business, Civil Society, Medical even Religious groups.

        Yan naman ang problema eh. Nagpakahirap akong mag-type ng information sources di mo naman binasa.

        Nag “doubt” ka lang kasi, pero di ka nag “seek”. Basahin mo muna kasi yung information. And don’t just dismiss it outright my friend.

        I urge you to set aside your preconceived notions, even for just a few minutes.
        Start with the views of Fr. Bernas, surely there is no harm in hearing the words of a priest.

        You can read his views on the RH Bll in his article titled: “My stand on the RH Bill”

        Then google “rh bill anti-rh postion lies distortions and straw men“. Read the article in response to the position paper from the rhbill org.

        Draw your own conclusions. Then if you still disagree. I can respect that.

    • http://twitter.com/philxce Felix Evangelista

      not true. only 66 ateneo faculty and it has been condemmed by the Jesuit management. The Ateneo official denounce RH bill.

      And there was no such thing as collective UP economist for RH bill.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/4NDRNR4NH2Q4EXS7TMWEEAUWGE Pope

        Weeh edi google mo “30 UP economists support the RH BILL”. Basahin mo yung article nila. They signed their names at the bottom. What do they say about the RH Bill?

        We say—based on serious evidence—that the RH bill is propoor and authentically prolife and profamily.

        As for the Ateneo Faculty. I think there is something to be said about the bravery of ordinary people who are willing to stand up for their beliefs, even with the threat of condemnation.

      • http://twitter.com/philxce Felix Evangelista

        O cge na nga nakita ko na. What a word pleasing to hear. As if like the old times when condemnation means physical and emotional brutallity. Parang lumalabas pa na they are heroes and the villain are the Ateneo officials. Galing.

        You know what, i have written quite a long paragraph a while ago but i ended up erasing them. I remember a friend who once told me, it take to be a deep faithful to truly understand the cause of what the bishops are fighting for. Perhaps its true, no matter how much we argue, we will never end.

        If Rh bill win, then enjoy the benefits of your triumph. The future will tell us all the true meaning of RH bill. But as Catholic, we  understand our stand, and we will fight for it.

        Human Vitae is a cyclical written by Pope Paul VI on 1968 as a strong opposition to Italy, Spain, or Europes embracing the RH bill.

      • http://twitter.com/philxce Felix Evangelista

        Yes i agree, perhaps we may have just stand not on the same ground but we still aim for one direction, a better Phlippines.

        Probably we could not meet our differences today because ours stand on the ground of morality as we put our faith in.In fact, we sounds hypocrite, but that we fight for. While yours is on economic benefits that is clearly visible and easily to understand for common understanding. 

        Perhaps in the future will need each other. So gudluck for both of us.

        Fr Bernas is not against RH bill but he is not completely in favor of it because he want to take away some provision that actually the very essence of the RH bill proponents which still means implied meaning to being anti-RH bill.

        As to taxation, yes of course public money is neither of any religion but its a fact majority or 80% of the tax comes from Catholics and majority of the the anti-RH proponenents are Catholics. Wether you like it or not, we are still a big group to consider.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/4NDRNR4NH2Q4EXS7TMWEEAUWGE Pope

        Actually, 70% of the country’s population want the RH Bill. That’s 70% of all the tax payers. So it’s really the minority who are against it.

        Even so, as citizens we don’t get to decide where our taxes are spent.

        And for the record…

        This country is a country of Filipinos. Citizens of every religion; of every belief.

        All equals.

        All Filipinos.

        Our forefathers didn’t fight for freedom just for Catholics. It wasn’t just the Catholics who fought and died fighting the Spaniards, the Americans and the Japanese.

        Headcount by religion does not make Catholics more Filipino than everybody else.

        This is NOT the Republic of Catholicism. This is the Republic of the Philippines!

        And we are all equal.

        So don’t lay claim to 80% of the country’s money. That’s everybody’s money. And it has no religion.

Majority of the Catholics is againts RH bill, hopeful only because we dont have actual figure but base on some indications, majority nga anti-RH. Ang problema lang, our political leaders, i dont think they still consider themselves Catholics when voting. And some if not most, dont have faith anymore.

      Noah’s ark, the flood, etc. was copied from the Epic of Gilgamesh. The writers of the Genesis was copying a myth. It goes on to say that the story of Noah and the flood is a copycat, therefore NOT REAL. so stop using this as a sort of “threat” because you sound so silly.

    The pro-RH bill congressmen’s papers, researches, and studies cannot stand against the anit’s because not only are they distorted, but some intentionally falsified to mislead the public. That’s why they railroaded the congressional hearing and terminated the debate because of this reason. This is tyranny at work by the minions of the mongoloid, the tyrant. They don’t want the public to know the truth. They employ “psyops,” propaganda, and armies of liars and mockerers, to stop the public from knowing the truth, whether in TV, Radio or newspaper. They are well financed by the unscrupulous global bankers and pharmaceutical companies to push for the RH bill that will result, as shown in the other countries who started with such bill earlier, to abortions and other instances of killing of the unborn and born babies. Their agenda are found in the UN Agenda 21, and one of these agenda is to reduce the world population from 7 billion to 100 million. Evil it is, and these pro-RH bill posters are shamelessly supporting them. No wonder everything one mentions the name of our God, they get furious because they do not belong to him. Look at how they vilify the priests and bishops, one cannot help but imagine fangs coming out of their mouths. Don’t call yourself Catholics or Christians, because you don’t deserve it, you don’t love your neighbors and you violate the God’s commandment: Thou shall not kill.

      Good morning G-man, kamusta night shift?

      Speaking of distortions and misleading the public.

      Noble Prize Winner denounces bold faced attempt by “clergy elite” to use his work for propaganda.

      A Rappler article reported that Nobel Prize-winning economist George Akerlof contradicted the CBCP’s use of his research in a public statement opposing the RH Bill.

      The truth that the “robed mafia” didn’t mention was that Mr. Akerlof’s research was conducted within an American cultural framework and therefore can not be applied to the culture of the Philippines.

      The article also points out that Mr. Akerlof was never informed, and only discovered that his research was being misused by the clergy junta.

      One can ask:
      Did the “clergy elite” purposefully and deliberately misuse Mr. Akelof’s research to spread disinformation?
      And how many more anti-rh arguments are based on disinformation?

      When asked about his real stand on the RH bill, the Noble Prize Winning economist said:

      I support fully, and without qualification, the bill in the Philippines to promote, without bias, all effective natural and modern methods of family planning that are medically safe and legal.”

      “In my opinion, giving women, whether single or married, the right to choose can only increase the dignity of marriage and its sanctity.

      Read the full Rappler article by googling: “Nobel Prize winner contradicts CBCP”.

      ——————————–

      The roaring Pro-RH movement continue to grow exponentially as more and more notable groups and individuals sign their support for the RH Law.

      While the “clergy elite’s” scheme of fear and disinformation crumble like a house of cards.

        Black pope, look at the  pills being referred to and read the literatures and labels, and understand what you read. The pharmaceutical companies that manufactured them do not guarantee that these pills will not cause cancer. So stop creating foams with your mouth.

        That is racist and we won’t stand for that.

        You know what is proven to likely cause cancer?

        - Mothballs
        - Plastic in household items.
        - Laser Printers
        - certain wood products
        - Chemicals in products including hair spray, shampoos, fragrances, and deodorants.

        Wonder why the bishops don’t rally about cancer in hair spray? Coz it’s not really about cancer.

        You can dance all around the topic. Employ all the scare tactics and doomsday scenarios you can imagine. But at the very core of all your objections is this: you think using contraceptives is a sin.
        And the clergy elite want to impose their own beliefs on the entire country.

    The pro RH bill congressmen, through sheer numbers, shamelessly and illegally stop the congressional debates, violating their own rules. The congress has  a process in passing a bill. The congressmen must follow this process. This is to safeguard that no bill will be passed without proper scrutiny and study, as all bills should. No individual or group of congressmen can just violate this process. The RH bill congressional debate has been prematurely stopped, that’s why many congressmen were complaining.

  • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

    To all PRO RH Bill: Pls refute the following arguments so we will know from where you are coming!

    POSITION PAPER ON THE RH BILL
    by individual faculty, students and alumni of the University of the Philippines*

    As faculty members, students and alumni of the University of the Philippines, we state here the bases of our objection to the consolidated Reproductive Health bill that is pending in Congress.Given
    the secular background of UP education, we put forward arguments from
    reason, to wit:

    1. Population is not an obstacle to development. The bills assume that a nation’s population hinders its development that is why they push for the promotion of a two-child policy, massive distribution of contraceptives, sex education (to acquaint young people with contraception), and sterilization, all of which make use of taxpayers’ money.  However, as early as 1966, Nobel Prize winner Simon Kuznets’
    research has shown that there is insignificant empirical association
    between population growth rates and output per capita (economic growth). Rather, it is the rate at which technology grows and the ability of the population to employ these new technologies efficiently and widely that permit economic progress. Kuznets saw that the basic obstacles to economic growth arise from the limited capabilities of the institutions (political, social, legal, cultural, economic) to adjust.  He argued instead that a more rapid population growth, if properly managed, will promote economic development through a positive impact on the society’s state of knowledge. His findings have been confirmed by similar studies by the US National Research Council (1986), the UN Population Fund Consultative Meeting of Economists
    (1992), Eric Hanushek and Ludger Wößmann (2007), among others.

    2. The
    government has to channel limited funds to job creation and education.
    The latest report of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) entitled Key
    Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2010 notes that the “middle class has increased rapidly in size and purchasing power as strong economic growth in the past two decades has helped reduce poverty significantly and lift previously poor households into the
    middle class.”  Two factors were reported to drive the creation and
    sustenance of a middle class: a) stable, secure, well-paid jobs with
    good benefits, and b) higher education. And so, why not create more bills that will strengthen these two factors instead of
    channeling our limited funds to contraception and sex
    education?

    3. Fertility rates in the Philippines are progressively
    decreasing. Our Total Fertility Rate (TFR) has declined by more than 50% in less than 50 years: from an average rate of 7 in 1960 to an average rate of 3.1 in 2008.  Our TFR is expected to reach the replacement level of 2.1 in 2025 without massive government intervention like the passing of a population control or RH bill. The passing of an RH bill will only accelerate this.  The latest November issue of The Economist entitled “Japan’s burden” spells out the effects of an aging population and it would be foolhardy for us as a nation to push ourselves deliberately towards that direction. In 2004, Joseph Chamie, Director of the UN Population Division, reported that 60 countries have TFRs below 2.1 which means that they will eventually experience decline and aging.  He asserted that the efforts of these countries to raise fertility rates will not be enough to bring them back to replacement levels. Many of these countries are now asking their people to have more children. Why then are our legislators thinking of cutting down our best asset, our people? Should this push through, future generations of Filipinos will be forced to pay for the mistake of government’s
    intervention to manipulate a decrease in our population and suffer its
    ill effects as already experienced by other countries. 

    4. The
    government has to channel limited resources to address the leading
    causes of death. In the latest available Mortality Country Fact
    Sheet (2006) of the World Health Organization on the Philippines, the following were listed as the main causes of death: lower respiratory tract infections, ischaemic heart disease, tuberculosis, hypertensive heart disease, perinatal conditions, cerebrovascular disease, violence, diarrhoeal diseases, diabetes mellitus and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.  Can we not channel our limited resources towards curbing these diseases—and violence—instead of using them for contraception and sterilization? 
    5. Condoms are not a wise investment. We have the lowest incidence of HIV cases after Bangladesh in the ADB report mentioned above, whereas Thailand, which has been regarded as the model in condom promotion, has the highest. European epidemiologist Dr.Jokin de Irala refers to “risk-compensation” as the reason for higher HIV-AIDS incidences when condoms are promoted. Moreover, human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, by far the most common STD and a risk factor for cervical cancer among other diseases, is not prevented by condoms. HPV spreads through skin-to-skin contact, unlike AIDS, and condoms cannot cover all possible infected skin—a fact that is not commonly known. Why spend millions to buy condoms when they are shown to increase incidences of STDs? A government-sponsored nationwide condom distribution will only fatten the pockets of condom manufacturers.

    6. Oral Contraceptive Pills (OCPs) have been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as Group 1 carcinogens. OCP use has been associated with an increased risk of premenopausal breast cancer in general (an increment of 19%) and across various patterns of OCP use, with the highest risk observed among those who use OCPs for 4 or more years before their first pregnancy (an increment of 52%), according to a 2006 meta-analysis of over 34 studies dating back to the 1980s.  Corroborating these data was the landmark 2002 randomized controlled trial by the Women Health’s Initiative which pointed to a 26%higher risk of breast cancer for post-menopausal women who had received hormone treatment in addition to 41% more risk of cerebrovascular disease, 29% more risk of myocardial infarction, and 112% more risk of pulmonary embolism. Another study by Moreno et al. in the Lancet also points to an increased risk of cervical cancer with OCP use. And lastly, OCPs have also been shown to increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases,
    especially venous thrombosis and ischemic stroke. Will our government
    legislate a bill that will use taxpayers’ money to further expose women
    to all these risks?

    Our main argument boils down to this: that it is
    the State’s duty to order society by promoting the well-being of its
    citizens. Thus, it is a disservice to legislate what constitutes harm to
    its people. We pointed but a few of the studies showing the harmful effects of contraception to society, the family, the youth and women’s health.  While it is true that the State cannot stop people from using contraception, since
    they may personally choose to expose themselves to its risks, it is not
    the State’s job to facilitate access to what is harmful.

    What the government should do is craft laws that prevent people from harming themselves or more positively phrased, help them develop themselves and society.  We urge the legislators to dump the contentious and flawed Reproductive Health bill and to pass more bills strengthening the Filipino family, protecting its citizens against the risks of contraception, defending the scientific fact that conception begins at fertilization, providing essential medicines for the main causes of death, making quality education more accessible to Filipinos, and providing more jobs. For the love of our country,

    I just want to share this rather lengthy quote from the website of a (non-catholic) christian church for those who might be interested. I’m sharing this because it happens to be my personal stand on RH from a christian perspective. Might be worth pondering on. Reactions are welcome. Thanks.

    Shouldn’t we let God determine the size of our family?

    Sometimes people also reason that if you really want to “trust God” to determine the size of your family, then you should not use birth control. The assumption seems to be that if you “just let things happen naturally,” then God is more at work than if you seek to regulate things and be a steward of when they happen. But surely this is wrong! God is just as much in control of whether you have children when you use birth control as when you don’t. The hands of the almighty are not tied by birth control! A couple will have children precisely at the time God wants, whether they use birth control or not. Either way, then, God is ultimately in control of the size of one’s family.

    The “trust God, therefore don’t use birth control” thinking is based upon the incorrect assumption that what happens “naturally” reflects “God’s best” for our lives, but that what happens through human means does not. Why should we conclude that the way to let God decide the size of our family is to get out of the way and just let nature take its course? We certainly don’t think that way in other areas of life. We don’t reason, for example, that we should never get haircuts so that “God can decide” the length of our hair. Farmers don’t just let the wind plant their crops in the fear that actively regulating what is grown on their land somehow interferes with the provision God wants to give them. And a family doesn’t just trust God to provide food for by waiting for it to drop from the sky, but instead goes to the store to buys it. God ultimately determines everything that will happen, both in nature and in human decisions, and He brings His will to pass through means. Human activity does not therefore interfere with his plans, but is instead itself governed by Him as the means to bring to pass His will. Hence, we should not conclude that what happens apart from our planning is “better” and more reflective of God’s desires for us than what happens through our planning. God very often causes us to plan as the means towards improving our lives and advancing His kingdom purposes.

    Further, God has revealed that it is His will for us to regulate and direct creation for His glory (Genesis 1:28). God has given us the privilege of being able to make significant life decisions because this exercises wisdom and thus shows the fruit that His word is bearing in our lives. When we rightly use the godly wisdom God has given us, God is glorified. He doesn’t want us to simply think we have to take what comes naturally, apart from our efforts, because then our sanctified wisdom is not expressed. In fact, very often it is God’s will that we not simply let things move along naturally. Going back to the analogy mentioned above, farmers don’t simply collect whatever grain happens to grow in their fields, concluding “this is what God wants to provide.” Rather, they go out and plant grain, realizing that God wants to provide not only through nature, but also through the means they employ to steward nature.

    It does not work, therefore, to conclude that the use of birth control interferes with God’s role in granting children. Birth control can be a way of wisely stewarding the timing and size of one’s family. One might be able to minister more effectively for the kingdom, for example, by waiting 3 years after marriage to have children in order to enable the husband to go to graduate school. And one might be able to minister more effectively for the kingdom by deciding to have 4 children instead of 15, so that more resources can be given to the cause of missions and more time can be devoted to other areas. If such planning is done for God’s glory and in wisdom, and if such planning continues to acknowledge that our plans are not perfect and that birth control does not absolutely ensure anything, it is pleasing to God.

    Does birth control express a lack of faith in God?

    Without regulating the size of their family, many couples would end up having more children than they can reasonably support financially. In response, some argue that we should simply have faith that God will provide the funds. However, we don’t use the “God would provide” reasoning to justify going beyond our means in other areas of life. We wouldn’t consider it wise, for example, to pledge twice our annual income to missions organizations in faith that God will supply the extra funds. God expects us to make wise decisions according to what he has given us, and not presume upon him providing from out of the blue. Reasonable financial considerations are a relevant factor: “If anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever” (1 Timothy 5:8).

    Should natural family planning be preferred to “artificial” contraception?

    Some conclude that “natural family planning” is acceptable but “artificial” means are not. But this seems to overlook something significant: in both cases, you are still seeking to regulate when you have children. And so if one concludes that it is wrong to seek to regulate the timing and size of a family, then it would have to be concluded that natural family planning is just as wrong as “artificial” means. But if one concludes that it is ppropriate to steward the timing and size of one’s family, then what makes “artificial” means wrong but natural family planning right? Surely it is not because God is “more free” to overrule our plans with natural family planning! Perhaps some have concluded that artificial forms are wrong because they allow one more fully to separate intercourse from the possibility of procreation. But if it is wrong to have intercourse without a significant possibility of procreation, then it would also be wrong to have intercourse during pregnancy or after a woman is past her childbearing years. There is no reason to conclude that natural family planning is appropriate but that “artificial” means are not.
