Bishops’ presence at RH vote may backfire–lawmakers

The presence of bishops of the Catholic Church during the vote on the controversial reproductive health (RH) bill would hardly scare the lawmakers into killing the measure, and this could even backfire against the bill’s opponents, its supporters believe.

Akbayan party-list Rep. Walden Bello said the lawmakers were not likely to be swayed into changing their positions on the RH bill.  He said that based on his conversations with his colleagues, including those who are against the bill, many of  them would not appreciate being made to look like they were intimidated into voting against the measure.

“They don’t want church officials to seemingly threaten them,” he said in a phone interview.

Show support

Catholic Church officials, who are staunchly against the bill, said they would go to the House of Representatives and watch how the lawmakers would vote on the measure this week.

Fr. Melvin Castro of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines-Episcopal Commission on Family and Life said the bishops wanted to show their support to the lawmakers opposed to the bill because of the Church’s teachings.

Cagayan de Oro Rep. Rufus Rodriguez said the presence of the bishops would give  “spiritual guidance and moral courage” to the opponents of the RH bill and to those who were still undecided about their vote.

But RH bill sponsor Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman said the bishops should not order the lawmakers around when it comes to deciding the fate of the measure.

Not docile sheep

“Catholic bishops are welcome during the consideration and voting on the RH bill but they are cautioned not to demean Congress (representatives) by treating them like docile sheep to be watched and shepherded,” Lagman said in a statement.

“What (the) bishops cannot achieve by reason and persuasion, they must not pursue through fear and intimidation,” he added.

Lagman noted that the presence of bishops during House deliberations on the bill’s amendments had not succeeded in getting lawmakers to insert drastic changes to the measure.

“The presence of bishops in the plenary during the past session days did not save the ‘killer’ amendments proposed by RH critics from being voted down repeatedly,” he said.

Logical  reps

Lagman said that if the bishops had intended to sow fear or intimidation among the lawmakers with their presence, this was unlikely to succeed “because fear is destitute of reason and must be resisted with conviction, and not be allowed to deter or delay legislation.”

Bello said proponents of the reproductive health bill were leaving it up to civil society groups to decide if they wanted to similarly mobilize their forces to show public support for the measure and match the mass movement of the Catholic Church.

He said that he and other authors of the bill were more concerned about ensuring that the lawmakers attend the final stretch of the RH bill amendments period and will be present during the vote.

Texting for presence

Bello added that he and the other RH bill coauthors had taken it upon themselves to constantly send text messages and talk to their colleagues to get them to attend House sessions and to stay until these are over.

The reproductive health bill seeks to distribute contraceptives and make other family planning methods available for free to the country’s poorest families.  It however bans contraceptives that prevent the implantation of a fertilized ovum, as some consider this to be abortion.

The bill also seeks to provide age-appropriate mandatory reproductive health and sexuality education among adolescents in public schools, among other provisions.

The President Aquino, who supports the bill, had earlier gathered lawmakers in a luncheon and asked them to put the measure to a vote. But he stopped short of telling them which way to vote.

  • Hey_Dudes

    What this is – CBCP showing up in congress to watch the voting on the contentious RH bill, is their blatant disregard of separation of state and church doctrine.  This is how bad it is in our country where church clergy openly flexes muscle in an obvious threat to the state over a bill they oppose.  In other countries, these bishops will be barred from entering congress.  We Filipinos still have a long way to go to prove democracy is right for us.

    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.

    What these CBCP of the Catholic church will do in congress is a blatant violation of the separation of Church and the States as enshrined in the Constitution or the Law of the Land.

    They have no respect at all to the Philippine Constitution. They should be barred in entering the congressional hall. They do not belong there..

    These modern day Padre Damasos have no shame, no shame at all. Pathetic.

    The presence of these cone heads in the halls of congress during the voting will present a dilemma to the lawmakers who were intent to vote against the bill. A congressman, although opposed to the bill right from the beginning, votes against it will be perceived as coerced by the presence of the hooded hoodlums. If I were a congressman against the bill, I would resent the presence of these Filipino Ku Klux Klan. Kahit talangang intention ko na magvote against the bill, parang nagvote ako against dahil sa takot ko sa mga demoniong bishops.

    Cone heads don’t belong in congress. That is a DIRECT violation of the separation of church and state.

        How can the cancer inducing pill of RH bill save dying mothers or dying poor when in fact RH pills Kills the poor and make poor women die of cancer. RH pill is Killer pill. Do killers save lives ? NO ! it kills for that is what the pill is meant for. If RH pills does not kill then how can it be a tool for population control ? Now tell me that RH pill can save lives or a killers saves life. Answer at your own risk …….

      • artz555

        You are just concentrating on the reproductive pill as the only method. There other methods being recommended in the revised RH bill, including the natural method. And also, many of the developed countries of the world  who have strict laws on safety and quality, have had universal RH for it’s people for decades now. Have we heard from some of them that all reproductive pills are bad, or that their RH programs in general are bad, and should be scrapped.

         On the contrary, the countries ( and their people ) with RH, are more happy, prosperous and progressive than countries like PH, without an  effective RH. 

        Pass the RH bill now.

      • ARIKUTIK

        If natural method is truly recommended by RH bill then what for they insist on enacting a law ? RH bill forces the taxpayers to fund Killer pills for the delight of FOREIGN Drug companies which promotes contraceptive pills. If the developed countries are happy with RH like laws then how come they are now urging their citizens to produce more babies. Take for example Singapore, Japan , etc… That proves, RH bill is not the way for a nation to progress. Learn more about the develope world brefore you you answer. THE DEVELOPE WORLD IS URGING THEIR CITIZENS TO PAK FOR MORE BABIES.

    Why are pro-rh against the presence of the bishops in Congress?  It is not because they consider that unconstitutional or, as they have threatened, “it will backfire,” but because they want to forget morality, Natural Law, and a constant pricking of their conscience as Christian leaders!  Many of the pro-rh have forgotten the example of St. Thomas More who, before dying sent this message, as a rule of life for statemen: “I am the king’s faithful servant, but God’s first.” It is a pity,that  their fundamental option is to serve the Mammon and, like our First Parents, to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.  The presence of the bishops, prayer, fasting and other religious activities would, hopefully, melt the hardness of hearts of those who will lead the country into following the Natural Law in God, and allow the country to take a more reasonable and balanced view, as the teaching of the Church on life, would providentially inform their consciences.  A properly informed conscience is a “certain” conscience, not an “erroneous” conscience, i.e., formed by the right Christian principles! 

    There is no absolute need for a health bill masqueraded as a population control bill, in order to pass into law. We would be playing into the hands of extreme radicals for the legalization of contraception, abortion, same sex marriages, divorce, pre-marital sex and free sex.  Our morality as a nation would crumble, making us no different from the observed failed economic policies based on eugenics.  If it is maternal and child care that is really the concern of pro-rh adherents, a new law is not necessary; amendments could just be introduced in existing laws.  And finally, they need a bill guaranteeing “a safe and satisfying sex?”  What the…..

    Sex, for those who serve the Mammon, now guarantees a “safe and satisfying sex”?  It is an outright rejection of the purpose of sex and marriage, and focuses only inordinately into a single, partial good.  “For something to be good,” St. Thomas Aquinas writes, “it must be good in all its parts.” I  wonder what next, these legislators would think of!  So, if for any reason, the sexual union between married spouses do not turn out to be satisfying, would this be a reason to file a divorce?  Spouses, we know, by their marriage vows, are obliged to make their marriage work and should be understood in the context of man’s basic instincts of self and race preservation. Thus, the rh bill raises more questions than answers just to have a reproductive health law, and these “forces” promoting it have to be cut down to size.  Laws can never be inimical to the aspirations, moral values, cutural heritage, ethics, mores, laws, traditions, religion, practicesof the people; otherwise, we run the risk of causing a rupture in our cherished culture as a people and, moving with the dangerous currents, we could be swept into the depths of confused identity as a nation from which it may be difficult to get out of. These dangers can be avoided if the rh bill is rejected!

    VOTE “YES” TO OPENNESS TO LIFE.  RESPECT THE FEMALE BODY IN A GENUINE SENSE.  WORK WITH FOCUS AND PRIORITY TO ELIMINATE POVERTY, GIVING THE POOR A REALISTIC HOPE TO GET OUT OF THE RUT IN A CLIMATE OF A SOCIAL ORDER FOUNDED ON JUSTICE, PEACE AND LOVE, not by eliminating people, who like us enjoy the gift of life from God. Responsibility is short-lived if only induced as well as costly. NO, to the rh bill come voting time!!!

    • ARIKUTIK

      Nice argument but there were thousands words spoken before that RH bill is NOT for Health care  but for POPULATION CONTROL targeting the meek downtroden poor. It is morally unjust to force the citizens through law to inflict bodily harm to the poor by raming their throath with cancer inducing contraceptive pills. Harming both poor mother and child while the rich will be laughing out loud for the poor to die. The battle for justice and morality will go on. Bury that RH bill Now, the morally upright guided by God will never give up.  

      • artz555

        And you want the ‘ meek downtrodden poor ‘ to increase in number, and for these ” downtrodden poor ‘ to slowly suffer and die with less food, less healthcare, less housing, less education for their numerous children, less jobs for the parents, in crowded streets with rising crime,.etc. etc. etc.

        On top of that, you want the government to be overburdened, if not bankrupt, by spending more money for more increasing poor people every year, for their food, their housing, their education, their jobs, etc. etc etc.. What an argument.

        God will surely punish you for being cruel to the ‘ downtrodden poor ‘.

        Pas the RH bill now.

    • artz555

      So what you’re saying is that all the developing and developed countries around the world from Singapore, Japan, USA and Western Europe who have had universal RH for it’s people for decades now, are now suffering from uncontrolled abortion, pre-marital sex, free sex, etc. because of  their RH programs ? Be serious. Travel to this countries and find out.

      On the contrary, these countries who have effective RH, have solved most of the problems you mentioned. These countries and their people are also much richer, more prosperous and more progressive than countries like PH with no effective RH.  

      So pass the RH bill now.
