Bishops will be watching RH vote

By |


Catholic bishops are expected to troop to Congress on Wednesday to watch how the lawmakers will vote on the controversial reproductive health (RH) bill and to show their support for those who stand by the Church’s position.

According to Fr. Melvin Castro, executive secretary of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines-Episcopal Commission on Family and Life (CBCP-ECFL), the presence of the prelates in the gallery would be an expression of support for lawmakers who would vote against the family planning measure in line with Church dictates.

On the other hand, President Aquino had earlier called on his Congress allies to finally vote on the measure, which he has endorsed.

All the lawmakers are now in the “pressure cooker” because of the interest groups watching and trying to influence the outcome of the measure in the House, said Ifugao Rep. Teddy Baguilat, a coauthor of the bill.

These include Catholic Church officials and church groups, as well as Malacañang, Baguilat said, adding that both sides were expected to mount their own pressure tactics to attain victory.

Nonetheless, Baguilat urged his colleagues to take a stand and not shy away from the voting.

He said it would do the lawmakers good to listen to their constituents when they decide on how to vote on the bill. And as a coauthor of the measure, he believes they are on his side.

The majority of the population, particularly women, are in favor of family planning, surveys have shown.

Listen to the people

“It’s best to listen to what the people, the final arbiter in this debate, have to say,” he said. With this, no lawmaker should be afraid to take a stand on the bill, he added.

The RH bill mandates age-appropriate sex education in the schools and the promotion of birth control methods—both natural and artificial—by government health center. The measure is in line with women’s rights to information and access to reproductive technology. It also supports a more vigorous campaign against the spread of HIV-AIDS.

The Catholic Church, which is against artificial contraception, launched an all-out campaign against the passage of the bill.

In an interview with reporters, Castro said anti-RH legislators had urged the attendance of the bishops at the House gallery, saying they “need moral, spiritual [support] and the physical presence of the bishops.”

Prayer the main thing

“But the main reason the bishops will be there is to pray for the lawmakers,” the priest said.

While he couldn’t say how many bishops were expected to observe the crucial voting, Castro said he was hopeful there would be more of them on Wednesday than at previous deliberations on RH measure.

Before proceeding to Congress on Wednesday, anti-RH supporters, together with the bishops, will attend a noon mass at St. Peter’s Church on Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City, Castro said.

“After, there will be a procession all the way to the Batasan. If all of us cannot be accommodated inside then we’ll just stay outside to pray,” Castro said.

Many other religious groups in the Philippines, however, are not against the measure.

Majority Floor Leader Neptali Gonzales II said the important thing was to get the lawmakers to attend the session and vote.

The House had been beset by attendance problems since November. But following the meeting with President Aquino last Monday, a quorum has usually been attained.

Gonzales said he hoped the lawmakers would participate in the actual voting and not stay away to avoid having to take a stand.

“I prefer that all members cast their vote one way or the other, or even abstain if that is their position, rather than not attend sessions or skip the actual voting round,” he said in a text message.

 

Each side has numbers

Supporters and opponents of the controversial bill both say they have the numbers on their side.

The reproductive health bill only got moving again last week with the opening of the period of amendments after a personal call from President Aquino to finally put the measure to a vote.

Since August the bill has not moved forward because of quorum problems and because opponents of the bill had been making lengthy privilege speeches.

The period of amendments has been moving relatively slowly as well because opponents have introduced nearly line by line amendments to the measure.

    These trouble maker bishops should stay home. No need to go to Congress to pray. They can pray in their own churches. Their reason to go to Congress it to pry, not to pray. Alamero primera klase itong mga unggoy na cone heads. This is government business-not Catholic church business. Mahiya naman kayo mga kapal muks. You will only be disappointed because your prayer will not be answered-mind you.

    To the cone heads at the CBCP:

    1. Round one-you lost-you prayed for him.
    2. Round two- RH vote -you will pray again-you will lose again.

    • Leonardof

      The bishops are possessed with the vanity that they hold the power over the conscience of the greater number of the Philippine population that is predominantly the sheepish catholics. They don’t care or they could be so dumb about the separation of the state and the church. The bishops presence at the Congress only shows their vanity of having influence over the congressmen.

    Philippine laws do not restrict access to healthcare. The Philippine Constitution already guarantees the rights of individuals or families to make healthcare decisions on their own or to consult medical doctors of their choice. The internet, iPads, smartphones, television, and other media have significantly increased the dissemination of information and made a lot of relevant healthcare information freely and widely available for people to make informed decisions. The poor may not have the latest iPad but they know about texting, SIM cards, and social networking like Facebook. The poor families who are being unfairly portrayed as ignorant and irresponsible by RH bill marketing consultants are more tech-savvy and more informed about reproductive health than the brainwashed RH bill supporters. More science education and technical training are needed instead of wasting taxpayer money on Big Pharma RH training.  Government and business sectors should be held more responsible in fighting corruption and providing equal opportunity.  The RH bill will only limit and interfere with the rights of women, children, and parents in making healthcare decisions. The RH bill is racist, unnecessary, and waste of taxpayer money. Population growth and climate change are being used as scare-tactics by the foreign-funded RH bill special interest groups to advance their population control and eugenics agenda.

    • AntonioPeYangIII

      Social media is only one of many tools, my friend.

      And even assuming that the poor do have cellphones, is that a guarantee that they’ll know which websites and sources are credible? 

      How will they know that the website they’re visiting, for instance, is accredited and reliable as a source?

      It’s no secret that most of the websites on the net carry unreliable – and oftentimes totally false – medical data, and I fear you are asking too much of our people to sift through all of the rubbish just to get the information they need.

      • AntonioPeYangIII

        //Government and business sectors should be held more responsible in fighting corruption and providing equal opportunity.//

        False dichotomy fallacy there, chum. We can be against corruption and still be for the RH Bill – insinuating that these two are mutually exclusive is being intellectually dishonest.

    The Philippines is set to become the sixteenth-largest economy (16th-largest) by 2050, up 27 places in 2012, according to “The World in 2050″ by HSBC Global Research. The Philippines has a “favorable demographic profile” and will benefit from a rapidly growing population. The high population growth rate of the Philippines is seen as a “driving force for economic growth.” The increase in population will make the Philippines an “attractive base for manufacturers” and should “boost economic growth.”  Women and poor families will be the biggest beneficiaries of economic growth.

      Have you been a long resident of this country? Several years  have shown a growth in the economy but the poor are not benefitting from it. Why is that? Because of the population explosion. Whatever gains the Government is making, the resources are easily dwindled in giving out assistance to the poor residents who are unemployed and uneducated. These studies have a hidden agenda for their own benefits, not to the Filipinos.

      Yes, the GDP will grow fast but what matters is the GDP *per capita*. You can have a high GDP and still be a poor country if the only reason you have a high GDP is that there are tons of people.

    I guess concerned women intimately involved in the lives of priests and bishops should also be there in Congress bringing along with them the children of these “holy” men of the cloth. Likewise, victims of child molestation and other sexual abuses committed by the RC clergy should also be there in full force.

    Representatives must take into consideration what would be good for their constituents in particular, and the country in general.

    It can’t be denied that not only women but even men desire that a health program be accorded to women in particular the pregnant ones but the friction only ignited to cause severance of the unity of desires hinges on the used or introduction of condoms and contraceptives since to us, true believers of God find these contraceptives as abortifacient–a killer drug to the seed of life in the sperm and proven to inflict serious side effects on women using it without prescription and monitoring from able doctors.

    Now here’s the jinx, It can’t be rub out that with the proliferation and saturation of free condoms and contraceptives, any unwed female can make used of it to abort her unwanted baby due to shame of discovery, in short, the RH Bill is providing a door for this immoral and horrible act to happen. Such is an old story which, every family condemns to happen to their female children and it would multiply in a jiffy upon the enactment of the dreaded RH Bill.

    To the issue that overpopulation breeds poverty as the ground to reduce the poor families children is First Anti God and Second is its reduction is meaningless and unproductive because if these poor families don’t have jobs or livelihood employments then where will they get food to eat, hence, they remain poor as a rat–a heckle to the program. The gov’t isn’t solving directly the problem on poverty which is part of their plan instead the gov’t is creating more problems for the people to contend with like the aforesaid immoral and horrible acts to eventuate to unwed females, the serious side effects of the drugs and the foreseen corruption of the billions of funds but the most to contend with is the act to depopulate our country is a  grave sin, it defies the words of God go forth, multiply and fill the earth. As a typical example, my 6th grade grandson joined a debating contest in an Anglican School here in Baguio City and the topic was RH Bill, they won because the pro when they admitted that they were Christians failed to rebut the words of God on the 6th day of creation,”go forth, multiply and fill the earth.

      Saying that such a specific law will be the extinction of a nation is irresponsible, and have yet to be proven scientifically. In fact, no country who passed their version of the RH law have dipped into a dangerously low level of population, let alone near extinction.

    They failed to identify the root causes of our problems by simply closing their eyes, then they presented the wrong solutions which will in fact create more problems.  I hope the lawmakers will begin to think clearly like a good auto mechanic. Incompetent mechanics will ruin the car and drain the car owner’s finances. We, the people, are the car owner.  We expect the mechanic to have acquired knowledge of the inner workings of the car.  We expect them to study carefully the dire consequences of dumbness.  The culture of death caused economic havoc in the US.  No to RH bill.

    Mr. Aquino you can never win the fight against poverty in the country if you neglect to provide the basic solution which is employment. Though you be successful to stop these poor people from increasing their off springs but devoid of a program to hire them or grant a livelihood employment then they shall remain in their sad state to be still a despicable eye sore of society

    You aren’t solving an innate social problem but instead prolonging it to wallow in a quagmire of uncertainty and distrust towards the gov’t. You can’t make this nation great because you address problems incorrectly by way of not uprooting the main root but simply snipping off the twigs.

    To put an end or at least curb the escalating incidence of poverty is to attack it head on not going in circles like what you’re doing now. Give jobs to the poor and they’ll have food on the table. You can do it easily by way of amending the mining act and allow the gov’t to venture in mining operations as a means to provide jobs to the poor and in this manner, the gov’t has ample raw materials of iron , copper and lead to build sophisticated armaments, planes bombs, etc to bolster our defense security so that we won’t be depending solely from the US of A for protection in case of aggression.

    Another source of fund to provide employment for the poor is to stop once and for all corruption in the gov’t and the proceeds be allocated for livelihood projects making the poor as the beneficiary.

    In this manner a solution is feasible but if you skirt around the poverty problem to reduce children by way of investing billions of funds yearly just to buy condoms and contraceptives then the poverty problem remains to pester our country

    The RH bill is being defeated in public opinion and Congress despite commissioned surveys and sensational stories about poor families. The racist population control and eugenics agenda of the RH bill have been exposed and the pro-RH special interest groups were forced to make major concessions and amendments to the RH bill due to the weaknesses of their arguments despite their foreign-funded propaganda machine. The RH bill is a despicable and deceptive piece of legislation that pretends to be for women’s rights and reproductive rights. Pro-RH marketing consultants even misappropriated and plagiarized the language of women’s rights to sell the RH bill, which is another blame-the-poor program for the comfort and convenience of the wealthy and privileged few. The RH bill is about empowering the State, Big Pharma, and the Population Control Establishment, which includes the Population Council, Club of Rome, International Planned Parenthood Federation, to reduce the fertility of Filipino men and women, control women’s bodies, control healthcare decisions, control access to healthcare products and services, and control the education of children using taxpayer money. The poor should be provided with economic opportunities instead of wasting taxpayer money on the RH bill.

    • joshmale2004

      In addition to being crowded, our population is comprised of 23% belonging to 0 to 9 years old, 21% belonging to 11 to 19 years. This is a whooping 44% dependents on our entire population. While 42% of our entire population belonging to 20 to 50 age bracket. This sector is considered the working sector and if you remove the 11% unemployment rate, this leaves around 37% of our entire population is working. Add to the fact the 44% dependents will have a few years more before they can become productive via work force. This is if all 44% will be given proper education to prepare them to become workers. Your figure of 43k per SQK will soon become 50K per SQK which will leave our land with 20meter per person.

    The Philippines has a lower population density than Singapore, Bahrain, Taiwan, South Korea, Netherlands, Lebanon, India, Israel, Belgium, and Japan. Overcrowding and overpopulation have different meanings. Overcrowding in major urban centers does not necessarily mean it is overpopulation. The rural areas of the Philippines are not overcrowded or overpopulated. The Philippines is not a confined area, unlike a petri dish. Manila is a crowded city but it is not the Philippines. The Philippine Constitution guarantees freedom of movement or freedom to travel.

    • joshmale2004

      You are right. The Philippines(777) has lower density compared to Taiwan (1849), South Korea(1288), Netherlands (1,259), Belgium (889) but higher than Singapore (241) and Bahrain (239). But the comparison is not applicable to this countries as they are classified as economic hubs while Philippines is classified under a Third World Country. Among Third World Countries and in Asia where it is more appropriate to compare our density, we are among the highest as compared to Cambodia (204), Malaysia (192), Vietnam (672), Nepal (536), Brazil (58), Indonesia (351), Thailand (327). We are even higher than China (365) which is a super power and North Korea (497).

    • Rae_E

      I find it mind-boggling that some insist that the Phils. is not “overpopulated”. They often cite Singapore, Taiwan, Hongkong etc, as denser than Phils. But overpopulation is best gauged by GDP per capita rather than population density.Yes, Singapore or Macau is denser but their income is higher too. GDP per capita measures the country’s income over population. It indicates the country’s standard of living. As per GDP/capita, Singapore ranks 6th in the world, Macau-40th, Hongkong-12th & the Phils-161st! Thus it’s obvious we’re living beyond our means as our income/resources are not enough to sustain our population. That’s why 33% of our popn. lives below poverty line, 40% lacks food &  we have 11M OFWs.

      FREEDOM OF CHOICE

    Does it include the freedom of babies to choose life? Whose freedom are they protecting? The freedom of perverts and murderers?  The elite of the world would like to see criminals rewarded and the innocent  condemned.  That’s the satanist agenda, to subvert the order of God.  Pharaoh did it.  Herod did it. 

    Don’t call me conspiracy theorist because the push for same sex marriage, legalization of abortion, legalization of prostitution, etc. is as real as the Starbucks coffee the congressmen are enjoying now.

    Freedom of choice is a euphemism for the murder of the innocent and total tyrannical control that will extend all the way to your body.  Its the freedom to do evil with the backing of law.

    THE BIG QUESTION IS WHY MAKE A LAW ABOUT IT?  It’s because the law will make way for the formulation of tyrannical policies and the police will have to enforce it because it will have legal basis. And it will be very difficult in that time to defy the interpretation of the government.  After such initial success, foreign funding will pour again to the pockets of the traitors to spouse another agenda.

    And what overpopulation are they talking about?  The countryside are almost empty of people.  The poor are forced to populate growth centers because there is not much employment opportunities in their lands.

    And what do you mean overpopulation is the reason why people are living along river banks?  They are there because they cannot afford to finance decent homes.  There are no shortage of condominiums in the country, and Megaworld can build more.

I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.

    To improve the country’s standard of living and have a more sustainable population growth, the more responsible and effective policy is to have a more equitable distribution of wealth and better management of resources.  The Philippines has a lower population density than Singapore, Bahrain, Taiwan, South Korea, Netherlands, Lebanon, India, Israel, Belgium, and Japan.  The population growth of the Philippines is a driving force for economic growth.

    • joshmale2004

      A.) This isn’t a population control bill: it’s a ‘help poor people improve their lives’ bill.

      B.) There are so many drivers of economic growth that your little comparison is just amazingly limited.  Every country you’re using for comparison has so many factors differentiating them from the Philippines that it isn’t even funny.

      C.) Population growth is a positive force for economic development IN GENERAL.  However, it needs to be balanced out by what the State will have to pay to support that extra population if that population cannot support itself (which is the case in the Philippines).  Frankly, one engineer (or doctor, or lawyer) who earns a good salary is going to contribute more to the economy than 10 squatters.  The RH Bill in theory means more kids will be able to go to school, and those higher average education levels mean more economic growth.

  • joshmale2004

    The ANTI RH Bill keeps on insisting the Bill as promoting Abortion. We have existing laws on ANTI-Abortion (See below articles under the Penal Law) and very clearly, the criminal offense of Abortion is defined in our Penal Law and was supported by HB 3667 by Congressman Bagatsing increasing the penalty on abortion. It is common sense that we can not have 2 contradicting laws which promotes abortion at the same time another law penalizing abortion. If the intention of the RH Bill is to supercede the Anti Abortion Law, then it should have explicitly said so in the RH Bill. But in reality, it is not the case. Do you know why the sectors fighting against the RH Bill can not go to the SC to petition the Bill? This is because they know that the SC will render judgment that the RH Bill is not superceding the existing ANTI Abortion Laws. ” SEC. 4.Prohibited Acts and Penalties. –The corresponding penalties for the crimes of Intentional Abortion, Unintentional Abortion, Abortion Practicedby the Woman Herself or by Her Parents, Abortion Practiced by a Physician orMidwife, and Dispensing of Abortives are hereby increased.  For this purpose,Articles 256, 257, 258 and 259 of the Revised Penal Code are herebyamended to read as follows:“Article 256.Intentional abortion. –Any person who shall intentionallycause an abortion shall suffer:1.  The penalty of  [reclusion temporal] RECLUSION PERPETUA,if he shall use any violence upon the person of the pregnantwoman.2.  The penalty of [prision mayor ] RECLUSION TEMPORAL, if.without using violence, he shall act without the consent of the woman.3.  The penalty of prision[correccionalin its medium andmaximum periods] MAYOR, if the woman shall haveconsented.“Article 257.Unintentional abortion. -The penalty of prision [correccional]  MAYOR in its minimum and medium periods shall  be imposed upon any person who shall cause an abortion by violence,but unintentionally.“Article 258.Abortion practiced by the woman herself or by her parents.-The penalty of prision[correccional]  MAYOR in its mediumand maximum periods shall be imposed upon a woman who shallpractice an abortion upon herself or shall consent that any otherperson should do so.Any woman who shall commit this offense to conceal herdishonor shall suffer the penalty of prision[correccional] MAYOR in itsminimum and medium periods.If this crime be committed by the parents of the pregnantwoman or either of them, and they act with the consent of said womanfor the purpose of concealing her dishonor, the offenders shall sufferthe penalty of prision[correccional] MAYOR in its medium andmaximum periods.“Article 259.Abortion practiced by a physician or midwife and dispensing of abortive.-  The penalties provided in Article 256 shallbe  imposed  in  their  maximum  period,  respectively,  upon  anyphysician  or  midwife  who,  taking  advantage  of  their  scientificknowledge or skill, shall cause an abortion or assist in causing thesame.Any pharmacist who, without the proper prescription from aphysician, shall dispense any abortive shall suffer [arresto mayor ]PRISION CORRECCIONAL and a fine not exceeding [1,000 pesos] ONEHUNDRED THOUSAND PESOS (P100,000.00)

    Not only that. They also use dirty tactics like fear mongering.
    They said that typhoon Pablo was sent by God because of the RH Bill.
    And then they tried to ride on Manny Pacquiao’s fame by asking the laity to
    pray for him. Never mind the victims of typhoon Pablo. But God certainly disagreed,
    God doesn’t take sides in boxing tournaments. But the bishops do. And then they send
    young high school students to the Batasan grounds to make their case. Do parents even
    know their children were sent by the Catholic clergy to lobby at the Batasan ? The bishops

    Current fear mongering and intimidation of the Church and it’s supporters on particular members of Congress is getting close to a  clear  violation of the PH Constitutional principle of Separation of Church and State. Their supporters rationalize that Pres. Aguino is doing what the Church is being accused of.
     
    But Pres Aquino, as the Head of the Executive Department, is clearly a part of the PH government, while the Church is not. So to remind everybody, Article II. Section 6  of the 1987 PH Constitution says, as follows : 

     ” The Separation of Church and State shall be Inviolable “————( Websters dictionary says ‘ Inviolable ‘means cannot be violated …..incorruptible…..etc.)

    No studies so far have shown that there is causation between population and economic growth.  To those intellectual dishonest pro-RH, please show proof that there is.

    Besides, population is an important factor for economic growth.  Coupled with good governance and sound economic system, our country can achieve its goals.

    Oh the contradictions:

    Pro-RH:  RH can help curb population growth problems.  Our population growth is unbridled.

    UP Professors (pro-RH):  RH bill is not a population control measure.

    Who is lying between the two?  HAHAHA.

    Besides, as UP professors have stated in their position paper, there are overwhelming evidence that would show that population control measure is not needed to achieve the goals of the government.

    Why the fvck we need this RH bill if population control measure is not needed?  The pro-RH people are dumbfounded. 

    Then they would retort that this is not a population control measure bill.

    If it is not a population control measure bill, then why the fvck would you declare in your propaganda (proponents of the bill are included) that our population growth will be addressed with this bill?

    Again, some pro-RH people are definitely lying.  They are releasing propaganda materials that are in contradiction with each other. 

    Pro-RH people are also liars that they hide, or avoid to highlight the following truth:
    1.  Population growth rate is decreasing.
    2.  Total fertility rate is decreasing.
    3.  Offering choices will not necessarily lead to decreasing population growth rate.
    4.  Corruption is the main problem of poverty.
    5.  Some contraceptives are abortificients.
    6.  Education is the key solution and the long term solution to our problems.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EXFI4EUGM23PQ4FMQKLVH36OXI Jose

      It isn’t a population control bill: the likes of Sen. Cayetano have flat out said so.  The population control is, however, going to be a side effect of the bill, which is why some are trumpeting it.  It, however, is not and never has been the point of the bill, as can be seen by the lack of a dictated ‘ideal family size’.

      The main aim of the bill is to help the poor.  Everyone, including the UP professors, has been unanimous on that.

      As for your truths, those are generally correct (though I’d argue that all of those are consistent with the bill), but overall the RH Bill has been estimated by people who know more about the subject than you or I to be a bill that will help the poor economically.

      Which is why I, and many Filipinos, support the bill.

      Oh, and I’d watch out about the lying accusations, especially as the Church has lied so much on this issue that they’ve fought to have an amendment included that says they can basically spread misinformation.

      • boldyak

        population control is not the main aim???? ….and the main reason is to help the poor????…how this bill help the poor?…the answer is control the number of their children…and we are back to the main reason of this bill which is to control the population…hahahahaha…wag nyo kami paikotin…susss naman…

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EXFI4EUGM23PQ4FMQKLVH36OXI Jose

        Well, you clearly haven’t read the bill.

        The main aim of the bill (as can be seen by the fact that the vast majority of funding is going to it) is to improve maternal health.  That means improving current maternal wards and increasing the number of midwives available around the country.  IIRC (though I’m not sure about the numbers) the bill’s funding will be around P13B, with around P11B of that going to these programmes.  So yeah, the main aim of the bill IS to help the poor, indisputably.

        But let’s move on to the bit that people who haven’t read the bill (such as you) think it is all about: the sex education and contraceptives.  Yes, it is pro-poor, because it gives the poor CHOICES.  It gives them the power to more effectively chose how many children they want to have, and provides for them to learn more about reproduction in general.  You’re focusing only on population control, but do you know how devastating it can be to have an unplanned child for a young couple before they’re ready to support him / her?  Or to a young woman who is still in college?  Or to a poor family that already has 6-7 kids they cannot support? 

        People will have the power to choose the number of kids they want, and with that power will presumably have a number of kids they can support.  Those kids will have a better chance of being able to finish school and escape the poverty trap.  Population control (if it actually happens) is going to be a side effect, not the main point.

        Economically it’s an obvious win.  Socially it does not impose anything, and gives people choices.  Morally some will object, but overall the government’s job is not to act as the arbitrator of morality.  It’s a no brainer, and it’s sad that so many people are ignoring logic so brazenly.

        I’d suggest reading the bill before posting further.

    ‘“The RH Bill is wrong because it assumes that contraceptives are good for mankind and women.”

    1. I agree, the RH Bill is not good for women because it might draw a woman away from her one, true, universal purpose – the uninterrupted production of healthy babies.

    2. Furthermore, the role of women in society and the universe is to make babies. That’s why God made women. That’s their sole purpose in life. They’re not good for anything else. Ever wonder why there are no women in the clergy? Because they’re not good enough.

    3. Contraceptives would allow women to enjoy the benefits of physical intimacy while maintaining a successful and productive career, if she so chooses. That is so wrong. Only men should be able to enjoy that privilege.

    4. Women should get pregnant every single time they have sex and onlyimmoral women enjoy sex without the possibility of conception. In fact,a better alternative would be for women, in general, to follow the example made by Mother Mary – to learn how to conceive without having sex.

    “The RH bill will put Filipinos at risk of extinction!”

    1. I agree. If we pass the RH bill, we will become extinct, like dinosaurs. The dinosaurs are all dead. If we don’t want to be extinct, we should not pass the RH Bill. I mean, do you really want to be a dinosaur?

    2. In my opinion, it wouldn’t even be far-fetched to speculate that the most probable reason the dinosaurs became extinct was because they used contraceptives.

    3. Population decline is just bad for nations. Just look at the countries which have a declining population – Italy, Japan and Singapore. They’re in such a bad shape. The Philippines obviously has a better economy and has a higher literacy rate than these countries. In fact, many Italians, Japanese, and Singaporeans go to the Philippines for work. That only goes to show that a decline in population is bad for the economy.

    “Our population is our biggest asset!”

    1.  In my opinion, people should make as many babies as they can because the population is not a problem. In fact, the more babies a person has, the more assets he has. Forget real estate properties, stock investments, or Jollibee franchises. The real secret to increased wealth is babies.

    2. If you have 15 babies, you’re practically wealthy because babies are assets:
    2.1 If you need money, you can sell them.

    2.2 If you can keep them alive until they can walk, they can one day beg for money in the streets – they’re going to have to anyway because there’s no way in hell you’ll be able to provide for all of them on your own.

    3. If ever a person is not able to feed the 15 babies he made, it’s the governments fault, because it’s the governments sole responsibility to make sure that every Filipino baby is fed.

    4. The best way a person can contribute to his country is to contribute to its population.’ -D Celestino

    • artz555

      Talking about contraception, extinction, and population decline. 
      Majority of the countries discussed above, including Singapore, Japan, USA  and Western Europe and most developing countries, have had  universal RH for all it’s people for decades now. Have we heard of the extinction of the peoples in these countries after they implemented their RH ? Not at all.

      As to contraceptives and other RH methods, these methods have been used by these countries in their RH programs for their decades now. Have we heard from these countries that these methods are bad and harmful and should bee scrapped from their RH programs ? Not at all. One method maybe more appropriate for one person, and another method may be appropriate for another.

      As to the declining populations, countries with moderate or low population growth rates have higher per capita GDP’s ( from Singapore to the USA ) and therefore higher living standards of living, than countries with high population growth rates, like PH. 

      One main reason for this is the ‘ Demographic dividend ‘ in that countries with higher population growth rates like PH is loosing this ‘ dividend ‘. This is happening  because PH is shifting a lot of it’s resources to it’s dependent young ( aged 1 to 19 years old ), instead of to nation building. And the countries with low population growth rates gain from this  ‘  dividend ‘, and use this dividend for nation building, thereby raising the living standards of it’s people.

      As to those Singaporeans and Japanese who work in PH, they are probably expatriates who  still earn their S dollars and yens from their mother countries, where these currencies go a long way in PH with a low standard of living. But most ordinary native Filipinos are still earning their low per capita GDP with their pesos. 

      Hence, the RH implementation of RH in PH should surely raise the living standards of all Filipinos.

    OVERPOPULATION MYTH

    The overpopulation theory is a myth. There are several studies showing the issue isn’t overpopulation but the lack in distribution of wealth. There’s just a concentration of people in the city. Take a plane ride and look down, you will see a lot of space.

    Overpopulation is wrongly connected with poverty. The admitted cause is corruption.

    HUMAN LIFE

    It’s not just about the union of the husband and wife. The union sould always be open to life

    Artificial contraception eliminates the possibility of a pro-creative element. Thus, Kung hindi kasi open to life, the sexual intercourse would just be like for the human satisfaction and pleasure. When you engage in the sexual act, that means you are ready to take the responsibility. The natural law is pro creation.

    bishops are welcome in the house. i believe our congress is more sober than those bishops. the congress will not bash the bishops in the house. unlike bishops they are bashing the congress in their sermon.

    i just hope the bishops will be men enough to accept the defeat.

    Talaga lang na ipaglalaban ng simbahang katoliko na hindi maipasa ang RH bill sapagkat alam na nila ang maaring kahantungan pag nakontrol na ang populasyon tulad ng nangyayari New Zealand na mas marami pa ang baka kaysa tao, tiyak uunlad ang kabuhayan at makalimutan na ng mga Pinoy ang pumunta sa simbahan para humingi ng biyaya sa Panginoon at maging kukunti na ang kanilang matanggap na abuloy at hindi na sila maka bili ng mamahaling sasakyan, magagarang kombento na aircon na tiles pa ang sahig.

Ang problema kasi ng mga pulitiko natin doble kara, gusto nsa gitna hnd makapag decide kung saan sila papanig natatakot, pag pumanig s simbahan hnd cla iboboto ng pro RH, pag nag pro RH naman cla takot cla baka hnd cla iboto ng mga katoliko, makikita mo personal agenda ang umiiral…yung posisyon ng simbahan nandyan na yan kht pa sa mga bansang may mga ganito ng batas yun parin ang posisyon nila pro life cla.

    I say freeloading because they pay no taxes yet somehow feel they can dictate government policy. That “somehow” is of course their concept God is watching our every move and judging us…

    If that was the case and we were being “tested”, as they are fond of pointing out, …. then we should examine their own handling of their many child molester priests…or their failure to part with their many priceless treasures in the Vatican to support the starving poor they claim God wished for…..

    One has the virtue of being true and provable and studiable, and the other doesn’t.

    All of this could be part of a plan – there is no way an atheist can prove that it is not – but it is some plan isn’t it. All set in motion on a scale beyond our imagination – all so that the pope can tell people not to jerk off.’ – Hitchslapped

    Population growth can be a driving force for economic growth and result in economies of scale. To improve the country’s standard of living and have a more sustainable population growth, the more responsible and effective policy is to have a more equitable distribution of wealth and better management of resources. The Philippines (308) has a lower population density than Singapore (7,280), Bahrain (1,631), Taiwan (644), South Korea (503), Netherlands (497), Lebanon (421), India (382), Belgium (365), Israel (359), and Japan (338) (pop./sq. km). Women and poor families will be the biggest beneficiaries of economic growth.

    The internet, iPads, smartphones, television, and other media have significantly increased the dissemination of information and made a lot of relevant healthcare information freely and widely available for people to make informed decisions. The poor may not have the latest iPad but they know about SIM cards and social networking like Facebook. The poor families who are being unfairly portrayed as ignorant and irresponsible by RH bill marketing consultants are more tech-savvy and more informed about reproductive health than the brainwashed RH bill supporters. The RH bill will only limit and interfere with the rights of women, children, and parents in making healthcare decisions. The poor should be provided more science education and technical expertise training instead of wasting taxpayer money on Big Pharma RH training. The government and business sectors should be held more responsible in eliminating graft and corruption and providing equal opportunity. The RH bill is racist, unnecessary, and waste of taxpayer money. Population growth and climate change are being used as scare-tactics by the foreign-funded RH bill special interest groups to advance their population control and eugenics agenda.

    It will take courage to vote “NO” to the RH Bill.

    There will be NO money in voting “NO” to the RH Bill.

    The people who have the money are the special interests groups who will gain windfall profits from the passage of the RH Bill and the public servants who will receive kickbacks.

    And just because the RH Bill stipulates the free distribution of oral contraceptives to the “poorest of the poor” women, does NOT mean any will actually be delivered.  After all, more money can be made if NONE is delivered. The “poorest of the poor” women will be NONE the wiser and NO one will be watching.

    After everything is said and done, the real intent of the RH Bill is to institutionalize a billing process that will facilitate the transfer of taxpayer money to these special interests groups.

    NO one will be exposed to the “unnecessary risks of oral contraceptives” because more money can be made if NOTHING is delivered. In the end, God’s mercy will prevail as always.

    And the fools as always will be the strident, derisive, pro-RH advocates who championed the RH Bill on false intellectual premises for NO pay.  They may even be taxpayers who will forgive their government anything — even human rights violations.  After all, the government (with its guns, its prisons, and its power to tax) can be trusted more than an unarmed Church.

    Of course, there were those who were paid. But their services will NO longer be needed after the RH Bill passes into law.

    It will take courage to vote “NO” to the RH Bill. But take heart. One can count on God’s mercy always, even when courage fails.
