No RH vote? Politicians fear ire of local priests

This Palace official suspects one reason for the lack of quorum in the House of Representatives during deliberations on the reproductive health (RH) bill: Reelectionist lawmakers fear provoking their parish priests.

In the countryside, there is such a thing as a “Catholic vote,” and pro-RH lawmakers would rather absent themselves from the sessions than become the object of attacks from the pulpit in the run-up to the May 2013 elections, according to Secretary Manuel Mamba.

Mamba, head of the Presidential Legislative Liaison Office, on Sunday said lawmakers were “fearful” of provoking their parish priests by appearing in the deliberations, much more by voting for the controversial measure.

“If you’re a politician, you stay out of trouble. They (the clergy) are not even the enemy. Why provoke them? By voting for the measure, you’re provoking the Catholic hierarchy,” Mamba said in a phone interview.

“The elections are near. You don’t want to create enemies. In local politics, there is a Catholic vote, especially in areas where the clergy are very influential on their flock. If the clergy are popular, they have the pulpit. They can do it every Sunday,” he added.

So, for some pro-RH lawmakers with their eyes on the midterm elections, the option is “to absent themselves” from the deliberations, said Mamba, whose office acts as middleman between Malacañang and Congress in the choice of the legislative agenda.

Lack of quorum

Mamba said President Aquino was aware of such dynamics in local politics. Being a former lawmaker himself in  Cagayan province, Mamba said he “fully understood” where the lawmakers were coming from.

“It would have been much easier if it were put to a vote not too close to the elections,” he said.

The campaign for the midterm elections begins  in mid-February.

The Church fiercely opposes the measure. After bold predictions by House leaders that the bill would be approved, plenary debates on the measure have bogged down for lack of quorum.

Lawmakers either skip sessions or leave after the roll call. Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales II said most of the absentees were supporters of the measure.

Abortion, promiscuity

The RH bill would provide couples with information on family planning approaches, including modern contraception methods that the Church opposes. It would also widen reproductive health education in schools and government health centers.

Church officials oppose the measure, saying it might promote abortion as well as promiscuity. They consider some birth control pills as abortifacient.

The health department supports the bill, saying it would reduce maternal and child deaths in the Philippines.

The President has not issued a fresh call for his allies in the House to bring the measure to a vote.

Time to vote

“The President has said his piece,” Mamba said, referring to Mr. Aquino’s Aug. 6 caucus with the lawmakers. “He has given orders for the lawmakers to be present, have a quorum and vote on it. He will not impose whatever position they will have. What’s important is they vote on it.”

After the caucus, the lawmakers voted overwhelmingly to terminate debates. But with the lack of quorum, no amendment has been introduced.

Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said the lawmakers had yet to discuss with the President the matter of certifying the measure as urgent. Otherwise, Malacañang was leaving its approval up to the lawmakers, she said.

In the 283-member House, the pro-RH proponents have a slight edge over the anti-RH lawyers. Some congressional sources say it’s possible more anti-RH lawmakers than pro-RH proponents would show up if a vote is forced now.

‘Ripe for a vote’

“Our problem in the House is membership. Our problem in the Senate is the leadership,” Mamba said.

Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III are opposed to a counterpart measure in the chamber. Unlike in the House, the bill has better chances of getting approved in the Senate, with more senators backing it, according to Mamba.

“I think the RH bill is ripe for a vote in the Senate,” Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. said on dzBB radio. “The issues have become tedious since I sponsored my own version as a congressman. All of us are ready, win or lose.”

Marcos said Senators Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Pia Cayetano, the main authors of the Senate bill calling for a national policy on reproductive health and population, had agreed it was time to put it to a vote whatever the outcome.

“I will support the bill,” Marcos said.

But he said the 2013 elections would play a factor in the outcome of the vote.

“I’ve heard that some of the authors [in the House] have withdrawn their support because of the election. That’s the reality in our politics. If you are candidates, it’s really difficult to oppose the Church,” Marcos said. With reports from Gil C. Cabacungan and Inquirer Research

    Ngayon lumabas na ang katotohanan na maraming pulitikong takot kay Padre Damaso. Ang pakikialam ni Padre Damaso sa ating lipunan is one indication that the Philippines will always be the Sick Man of Asia. Ito lang ang bansa na pinapayagan nang gobyerno na makialam si Padre Damaso sa ating pulitika. Wala na tayong pag-asa pang umasenso hanggang nandiyan si Padre Damaso

    I know a successful advance country who has ban and expelled the Jesuit’s in 1845 
    to promote fairness and justice, Switzerland, Christian since 500 AC,
    one thousand years before RP.
     
    maybe with 200 years advance on RP for social development,
    farmers used to own their lands, almost since ever !
    A deeply rotted Democratic and freedom education Culture, respecting the poorest !

    It can help to measure how backward The Philippines are,
    reasons have to be dig out to correct the wrong’s for everybody better future,

    Philippines, compare to Switzerland, is a super rich place in natural resources
    compare to none, no sea’s, 60% of the territory can’t harbor agriculture and housing,
    one harvest a Year, compare to four in Mindanao, GUTUM in a food basket, something fishy !

    The actuation of the church is reminiscent of Jose Rizal’s Padre Damaso. The spanish friar that symbolize catholic priest hold in filipinos. These priest are corrupt, fathered children and connive with others for personal gain. 

    It is more than a 100 years since the book Noli Me Tangere was written however nothing much change. The ills of priest still hounds the country. It is unfortunate that the people elected representatives in congress who do not have the heart to do what is right and face the corrupt church. It is only the electorate who can change the system. Palitan na.

  • blainz

    If this is the case, all the more reason to go the direct democracy route and place the RH Bill on a ballot to run on a referendum alongside the 2013 elections.

    Mga walang silbi.  Cut the pork barrel of these loafing congressmen. Publish their names. They’re doing the country a dual disservice; not only are they not doing their jobs, they can’t uphold the Constitution and separate Church from State.

    • WeAry_Bat

      “place the RH Bill on a ballot to run on a referendum alongside the 2013 elections”

      That is a good recommendation. 

      Because for me, I now think why the RH Bill is getting delayed is because of the elections next year:
      1. Maybe most pro-RH politicians do not want their name on it. 
      2. Maybe anti-RH politicians do want to be named for failing to block the bill.

      Then it follows, the silent agreement of both parties is to let it die a technical death.

  • Winzum Daoas

    Why fear the catholic priests. They have lost enough of their political grasp on the people that it makes them powerless in convincing the people to their side. Such can be seen in the RH bill where those for and against are pretty much number the same. The Catholic peoples fear of these people only gives them more power to abuse. Besides, what is there to fear. They are just people like us, who have been tasked to relay the message of the bible. And it says in the bible, that God does not reside at the churches but at the hearts of men. Even if the RC church excommunicates someone, they cannot remove that mans faith. Sure they can remove his right to enter  Catholic places of worship and deny them the right to participate in Catholic activities, but that mans faith remain.

    Equally pathetic is the fact an entity who doesn’t even pay taxes wants to dictate threatening anyone harsh retribution if they don’t get their way.  If it were me to decide, I will amend the constitution and in a new one, these meddlers will have to pay their share of taxes.

      President Ferdinand Marcos was the most intelligent and best president, the Philippines ever have. He had battled the communist and protected the masses from the atrocities of the rich. The Marcos era was glorious days for Masang Pilipino. After Marcos was gone the masses were flung wallowing in poverty. Intelligent Ex. Pres. Marcos will never shove cancerous RH bill to Masang Filipino. Only the Rich, High and Mighty of todays era wants to eradicate the masses.

      • brunogiordano

        “I will support the bill,” Marcos said.

      • mcb1207

        President Marcos promoted an active and well-thoughout family planning program under his regime.  His program was can be briefly summarized as 3-3-33.  A woman should limit the size of her family to not more than 3 children.  There should be at least 3 years gap in the ages between children to give the mother time to recuperate after each pregnancy.  And lastly, the woman should have her last child by the time she turns 33 years of age.

    • superpilipinas

      It is true that the Catholic church has no so called “solid vote” the INC have. INC practically ejects those who doesn’t abide. Catholic church gives free will to everyone. Catholics believe in the Catholic teaching. If one doesn’t want to believe, he ejects himself and the church does not even have to do anything.

      The representatives need to abide by the choice of the people they represent. If they believe there will be more who will vote against them if they vote for RH, then it’s but natural that they will not vote for it.

      He-he-he. Kasi alam nila, walang kwenta yang mga survey,

      There is no such thing as “progressive/liberal catholic” or “conservative/fundamentalist catholics”. Either you are a Catholic and you believe in the Catholic teachings or your are not. Simple as that.

      However, there are those who are in denial and still trying to pretend to be “Catholics”. They were baptized and would like to be labeled as Catholics but they have ejected themselves by not following. Everyone is free to remain a Catholic or to abandon it.

      The representatives acknowledge the high number of Catholics. Which is why RH has been thrown into garbage the last 14 years.

    RH Bill, corrupts and kills!

    ‘Choice’ as a license to do everything you want and is employed to
    manipulate life is foolish.  I hope the Congressmen and Senators who push
    RH Bill learn sincerity and stop manipulating and using the poor and women to
    advance their own interest and the interest of pharmaceuticals and abortion
    provider [post abortion] clinics. 

    Problems in this country are caused by corruption, not only of money but
    also of culture, morals and Filipino decency [that’s why it’s so easy for
    voters to sell their votes].  Sad to say, that there are people who are
    “willing victims or prey” to this “deeply rooted
    corruption” and then criticize those who are just trying to remind them –
    CBCP or the Church.  I remember how my
    fellow students and activists cheered the CBCP – the Church; in making
    themselves involved with the Filipinos cause against Marcos – in the name of
    faith and morals.  And yet now,  I
    wonder how “some” or “few” who claimed as “enlightened
    ones” criticize the CBCP or the Church who simply stand firmly on that
    same principle – faith and morals.  And then we hear congressmen and
    senators who paraded their arguments to push away “faith and morals”
    in the debate of RH Bill and willingly subscribe to the principle of
    “relativism” – freedom of choice as a way to do whatever suits to
    everyone.

    Sincerely, I cannot imagine a nation to survive without faith and morals and
    submit to the dictatorship of “relativism”.  Even atheist has faith on something as a
    substitute to God which is his reference for the choice of “good”. I could only
    remember some leaders and nations who/which ended up horribly ruined. 

    I’m working with urban poor and rural poor,  I live with them [just like what pro RH
    claimed], I know how easy to manipulate my “fellow poor” in the slums
    and I witnessed how these senseless or maybe conscienceless people “ride
    on” into it – I’m referring to RH promoters who said that the poor and
    women would  benefit that bill on
    contraception.

    RH Bill is not pro poor it is pro corruption and pro business
    [pharmaceuticals and abortion or post abortion provider clinics are salivating
    to RH Bill approval].  RH Bill is like
    reducing the poor and the unborn into commodities or even treating them as
    figures in statistics. 

    Proper and discerning governance, fair distribution of taxes, “hands
    on” and “well monitored” livelihood projects, equal
    opportunities for Filipinos in education and “hanap buhay”,
    sustainable aid for farmers; these truly help the poor.

    And of course when people in government would come into realization
    “WHAT IS ENOUGH”? and “HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH”?  And voters will give a fair play to
    candidates by upholding their democratic right during election and not bow to
    500, 1000, 1500 or more – per vote.

     

    • superpilipinas

      I agree.

      The number one cause of poverty is corruption. A lot of money is wasted and pocketed because TRANSPARENCY of the government is very very low.

      We should all unite to press the government to pass the Freedom of Information (FOI) law.

      Then our government should spend more time to adequately address the three major contributors to death in the Philippines: 1. Calamities, 2. Dengue 3. Transportation Accidents.

      Only until the above 3 are minimized then we should think of other things.

      It is foolish for our government to address RH at this time. I agree with the representatives who choose to be absent during those times. RH is a risky divisive issue and besides, there are a great many other better things to do!

       

      • jenny lim

         Kaya nga nakapagtataka. Alam naman nila divisive ito kasi ang dami ding ayaw.  At sila naman nagsabi na hindi ito totally makakatulong sa problema, there are so many other ways, but some groups insist into it.  Anu kayang nasa utak ni Pia Cayetano at Lagman?

    the number aids/hiv cases in other parts of the world has dropped. in our country it has skyrocketed. and the priests do not care. they do not want you to use condoms so people die.
    why are there so many suicides? partly because they no longer believe of God. the priests who is in the business of saving a man’s soul failed. they would rather go into politics. what a shame!

      in other countries, promiscuity has gone down from the 70s and 80s to the 90s and the present.

      promiscuity is the root cause of the spread of HIV and AIDS. promiscuity is BAD!

      The solution is to elliminate the root cause. not just to patch the problem.

      condom is just a patch. it further promotes promiscuity and carefree attitude. it could even encourage elementary kids if you promote it to them.

      but when party drugs and alchohol are mixed with promiscuity and irresponsibility and immorality, who would remember or care to use condoms? and there….you have more HIV and AIDS or unwanted pregancy and worse, abortion or suicide.

    • jenny lim

      I’m not a priest but I don’t care either…because it’s a “make believe” for those who want to promote RH.

    The RH bill must be approved.Plain and simple,it is just an affordable option to adults who want to embrace it.The RH bill is not like a gun pointed at you to use it.Again,it is just one affordable option for those who feels it will benefit them,regardless of religious belief…Also,there is no such thing as a” block” Catholic vote…All the coward congressmen who skip sessions must be in attendance to tackle this bill once and for all..Either you are for, or againts the bill,stand up and be counted…Even if you get caught favoring either side of the coin,you will not land in jail…If some or many have the courage to steal,the citizenry can’t understand why your cowardice attitude in putting to a vote the RH bill is very pronounced.
    While the Catholic church can do scare tactics to the politicians,just follow your best judgement(with the betterment of the Filipino people as your yardstick) in this bill…Afterall,losing the forthcoming election just because you made a stand will not be the end of your world..At least you have done what your constituents expect of you.

  • tra6Gpeche

    I want the RH bill to become a law. If it doesn’t become a law, many ignorant, very poor and uneducated couples especially those in the squatters’ area inside and outside Metro Manila will continue to have too many children that they can not feed and that they can’t send to school (even grammar school). These children will inherit the same situation of their parents. If they grow hungry, hopeless and without any education at all, their only recourse is to be enemy of the Philippine society. It is no surprise that there are so many crimes, violent and not so violent, in the Philippines. Generally speaking, crimes are caused by empty stomach and seeing no future. If I am hungry and uneducated, I will definitely steal from or victimize someone anywhere to survive. The wealthy Filipinos, like Mr. Sotto and others, can have more than ten children because they can give them elegant house, comfort, foods and excellent education. How about those poor couples that will have 8 or even 10 children? These very poor Filipino children will not have anything to be thankful for being alive. They will probably despise everything for being alive. I would, too. For me, it will be better not to be borne in this world than to live miserably filthy poor and not being able to read and write. These poor couples should be taught the benefits of having only 2 or 3 children. That is for their own good and especially, for their own children’s welfare!

Pati ang mahirap na mag-asawa ay hindi sobrang mahihirapan sa pagkalkal ng basura sa basurahan at sa mga ilog na maraming nakalutang na basura lalo na sa Pasig River. Sila ang magiginhawan kung isa o dalwa lang ang magiging anak nila. Iyong sinasabi mong trabaho ay malabong maibigay ng gobyerno dahil mangmang ang mga batang hindi nakaabot na elementarya man lang. Hindi sila marunong bumasa at sumulat. Isa pa ang gobyerno ay hindi factory ng trabaho. Kung may factory ng trabaho ang gobyerno, wala ng pupunta sa Gitnang Silangan upang magpa-alila sa mga Arabo ang mga Pilipina. Tungkol naman sa pagkain, mapapakain mo bang lahat ang mga pamilyang nasa iskwater sa labas at loob ng Metro Manila? Imposible iyon kabayan. Ang bisa ng konting pamilya ay para sa hinaharap ng mga bata. Kapag hindi naapula ang pagdami ng Pilipinong mahihirap sa hinaharap, lalong titindi ang patayan, agawan ng cellphone, bag, relo at iba pang alahas mga lima o sampung taon mula ngayon. Magiging mas mabangis sila. Walang magagawa ang CCTV at mga pulis. Hindi ko masisisi ang mga gutom, kumakalam ang sikmura at iyong hindi nakaabot man lang sa elementarya kung sila ay magnakaw at pumatay kung kinakailangan upang sila ay mabuhay. Kung ako’y gutom, magnanakaw at baka pumatay ako para mabuhay. Sa personal kong karanasan, kahit konti lang ang aking kinikita, dahil sa dalwa lang ang aking anak, napakain at napapagtapos ko ng kolehiyo ang dalwa kong anak. Ganoon din ang mga pamangkin ko sa Tanauan at sa Sucat. Iyong maraming anak, kawawa ang mga bata…laging gutom at hindi nakapag-aral man lang ng elementarya. Mabuti pa raw na hindi sila ipinanganak! Sinisisi nila ang kanilang mga magulang!

         “may pagasa ang dalwang ito na huwag magutom, huwag magnakaw, huwag pumatay pag binata na dahil lamang sa ibig nilang mabuhay…”

        may punto ka…pero ganon ba kaagad…generalization yan sa mga mahihirap na biktima ng mga pang-aabuso ng mga pulitiko at opisyal ng gobyerno…sistema yan…kahit ilang contraceptives pa ibigay sa kanila…kahit di lumampas sa tatlo anak nila…paghihirap pa rin hanggang di nawawala yang systemic corruption na nangyayari..

      • tra6Gpeche

        Iba ng usapan ang tungkol sa mga sakim na pulitiko. Alam natin na sila ang pinagmumulan ng kahirapan ng mga Pilipino. Subalit sa Pilipinas ay walang remedyo upang sugpuin ang pagnanakaw ng mga Pulitiko. Sa akin, kung isa o dalwa ang anak ng mga walang pinagkakakitaan o pirmihang trabaho, medyo hindi sobrang hirap ang dadanasin ng mag-asawa at ng kanilang magiging anak. Para din sa kanila kung hindi napakarami ang magiging supling nila. Ang pinahihirapan nila ay ang kanilang sarili, pati ang magiging mga anak nila. Gaya ng sabi ko sa iyo, kung lumampas sa dalwa ang aking anak, sigurado akong mayruon akong hindi mabibigyan ng tamang edukasyon at mag-aagawan sila sa pagkain, sa pananamit, sa gamot, sa gamit nila sa bahay at iba pa sapagkat ang kinikita naming mag-asawa ay tiyak na kakapusin. Alam ko kung hanggang saan makaka-abot ang aming kinikita, kabayan.

        Kabayan, hindi magkakatulad ang kapaligiran, ugali, damdamin, isipan, pananaw at disiplina ng mga tao, lalo na tayong mga Pilipino. Mayruong kailangang tulungan, mayruong kailangang itulak, mayruong kailangang pilitin at mayruon ding kailangang pagpaliwanagan at kausapin ng mahinahon. Mayruon ding taong ayaw ng pakikialaman. Mayruon ding ayaw hihingi ng tulong. Sa aking kinalakihan sa Tanauan, ang malimit na nagtutulak sa tao upang gumawa ng di tama ay ang sobrang kahirapan, hindi nakapag-aral kahit sa grammar school, aping-api ang pakiramdam, kawalan ng pagasa sa kinabukasan at kawalang paggalang sa sarili dahil ay pagtrato ng lipunan. Have a great day, kabayan!

      • tra6Gpeche

        Tama ka sa isang banda kabayan. Na kahit dalwa lang ang anak at walang responsable ang magulang, wala ring patutunguhan ang buhay ng mga bata. Sa akin naman, kung lima ang aking anak, sa kakarampot kong kinikita, tiyak na tiyak kong dalwa o tatlo sa mga anak ko ang hindi makakatapos ng kolehiyo. O baka 1st o 2nd grade lang ang maabot ng iba. Kaya nga pinili kong dalwa lang ang maging anak naming. Alam ko kung hanggang saan ang kaya ko upang buhayin ng ayos ang buhay ng aking mga anak. Puede kaming mag-anak ng sobra sa dalwa subalit alam kong dalwa lang ang tama sa aming kinikita. Ayaw kong sumbatan ako at kamuhian ng mga anak kong hindi makakatapos, dadanas ng gutom at kawalang-pagasa sa hinaharap nila sa buhay na magtutulak sa kanila na gumawa ng kasamaan.

      Why are our tonggresman that hungry that is why they steal? History will tell you big time crime are perpetuated by the rich and not the hungry….

      • tra6Gpeche

        I would not disagree with you that corrupt Senators, Congressmen and other filthy politicians to be big time criminals. However, many poor Filipinos who are really hungry and without even grammar school education will have no recourse but to steal, to rob and to kill if necessary in order to survive. They grew up hungry and will never find any kind of job since they don’t even know how to count, read and write. They grew up hating their situation. The proof is the many crimes, violent and not so violent, inside and outside Metro Manila. If I am hungry and do not even have a grammar education, I would definitely do the same thing. I would even hate my parents for giving me life. I would rather not be borne than to be hungry everyday, filthy, not having a clean house, no toilet, no shower room, no bedroom, no tidy clothes, no underwear, always on foot, no toothbrush, no toothpaste, no medicine, etcetera, etcetera. If I was born like that, shame on my ignorant parents. For those criminal, filthy, immoral Politicians’ children, I would say that they are luckier because they all have the comfort of living.

  • Bad_Ong

    Yet, they’re called representatives? WTH, representatives of what, people of no balls or of the Damasos?

    Pro or anti RH they should attend every session & perform their obligations because they don’t just represent the people of their districts but they’re being paid too, very well paid, by the same people themselves and NOT by the priests who are enjoying tax privileges somehow!

    Sabagay both their houses are infested with corruptions in different ways/forms. So, may be they’ll allow and have regard to opportunities where each other interests can be achieved best!

  • Godfrey Buillon

     I think if you review the attendance records of past, you’ll notice that in an election year and Christmas season, absenteeism is rampant. The only reason this is news is because the RHbill proponents really don’t have the numbers and need to point the finger to someone and the Catholic Church is the easiest target. Funny but throughout this RHBill debate, I have never heard of any priest use his homily to touch on voting against pro-RH legislators in 2013 and yet these fellows are complaining. Why make the church a scapegoat for their absence?

    1) That is why, I and other people believe that the majority of the Church in PH ( Preists and Bishops) are the descendants of Padre Damaso, which Rizal wrote in his novels as the wicked priest representing Spain, that with the sword, kept Spain in power in PH for 350 long years or so..

    It’s hard to remove the shackles of Damaso after centuries of indoctrination by Spain, but these Representatives in Congress now, should realize who they are really representing ? Is it the Priests and Bishops, or the people who voted them into office ? They should not be worried about the the backlash of the Church, but instead should be worried about the ultimate backlash of their voters in the next election, who predominantly wants an RH bill passed in Congress.

    It is sad and unfortunate that this unique PH phenomenon above ( if allowed to flourish ) will continue to be one of the major factors that will keep PH behind most progressive countries in Asia and the world ( well most of them, except Iran and others), where their Churches generally do not interfere with the affairs of their governments. 

    2) These Representatives should not worry about their Priests or Bishops, because the Church in PH is not allowed to interfere in the affairs of the State, in view of the ” Separation of Church and State ” clearly stated in the PH constitution.

    Specifically, Article II, Section 6 of the 1987 Philippine Constitution states :

    ” The Separation of Church and State is Inviolable ”

    Webster’s dictionary says ‘ Inviolable ‘ means —-cannot be violated ,..incorruptible…etc 

    Anyone who violates this provision or other provision of the PH Constitution ( whether members of Congress, the Church, or others ),.. many believe, should be prosecuted.
