Senate expected to pass RH bill Monday

By , |


Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile has acknowledged that the chamber will soon pass its version of the reproductive health (RH) bill.

“My reading is that the pro-RH has the numbers,” Enrile, a staunch opponent of the measure, said in an interview over dzBB. “It looks like [it’s going to be approved]. It might be very close.”

The House of Representatives is expected to approve its version of the RH bill on third and final reading Monday. It approved the measure on second reading on Thursday by a vote of 113-104-3.

The Senate and the House will have to reconcile their versions before the measure becomes a law.

Enrile said the bill, once it became law, could be questioned for violation of  a constitutional provision on  protection of life.

He warned that the country might not have a sufficient number of workers, and worse, people to defend the country against its more aggressive Asian neighbors.

But Enrile said he could question its constitutionality in the Supreme Court only after he left the Senate. “I will have to respect the position as part of the institution that approved it but I can raise an issue against it,” he said.

Proof that the pro-RH senators had the numbers was the vote on the individual amendments, Enrile said.

Vote of conscience

He said nobody would stop the vote, saying it was going to be a “vote of conscience.”

Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III, another fierce critic of the bill, said it was about time the measure was approved and enacted so the people would realize the “folly of passing it.”

“By all means, let’s put it to a vote once and for all so that we will prove that we’re just frittering money away on this bill, and the people would not benefit from it,” Sotto said by phone.

The measure would allow the distribution of  contraceptives and make other family planning methods available for free, giving priority to the poor. It would ban contraceptives that prevent the implantation of a fertilized ovum, as some consider this abortion.

It would provide for age-appropriate mandatory reproductive health and sexuality education in public schools.

Malacañang expressed confidence that the RH bill would be passed by Congress this week.

Turning point

Last week’s approval of the RH bill on second reading in the House could prove to be the “turning point” for the approval of the key legislation in both chambers of Congress, Budget Secretary Florencio Abad said.

After the vote, Abad, a senior political adviser to the President, said it became clear that there was a majority of supporters for the bill in both the House and the Senate.

He observed that even the senators had to wait out for the House vote before resuming debates on the RH bill.

In the Senate, “there is clearly a majority support for the RH bill as indicated by the voting on the amendments because the senators held off further debates until the House took action on the bill,” Abad said in a text message.

Responsible parenthood

And then on Thursday night, the President certified the RH bill  as urgent to hasten its passage by Congress before it adjourns this week for the holiday season, he added.

“The President has repeatedly emphasized that responsible parenthood is a critical and urgent public health intervention designed primarily to address the plight of the poor. This position resonates with and has gained traction among legislators,” Abad said.

The budget secretary said Congress needed to approve the bill, otherwise it might be too late. “We have to pass the measure this week if the bill is to become a law at all,” he said.

While the lawmakers are “men and women of faith,” they are also “elected public servants with constituents, especially the poor to take care of,” Abad said. “In the RH bill, both concerns can be addressed.”

Shorter this time

The suspense over the House final verdict on the RH bill is expected to be shorter this time around.

Unlike the five-hour voting on second reading, the bill’s third reading today would be faster because under House rules, all lawmakers would have to signify first their vote before any of them would be allowed to explain their stand, according to Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales II.

This means that the verdict would already be known by the time the representatives, if any, begin justifying their stance, Gonzales said.

During the bill’s second reading last week, many representatives opted to hold speeches—some brief and to the point, others meandering—explaining their stance before casting their vote.

    I think the arguments have been stated ad nauseum, so I won’t rehash them here, but I can sincerely say that I believe, based upon extensive reading, my conscience, and an economics degree, that the RH Bill is going to be a big step forward for our country.

    Here’s hoping it gets passed in both chambers.

    The RH bill is a Prior Restraint on life.  Prior restraint is censorship imposed on speech or expression before the speech or expression actually takes place.  The RH bill violates the constitutional prohibition against Prior Restraint.  The RH bill is a racist population control program that targets poor and middle class Filipino families for fertility reduction.  No State shall deny any person the equal protection of the laws.  The RH bill violates the Equal Protection Clause of the constitution.  The RH bill violates Due Process.  It unfairly profiles the poor and middle class families for population control.  It restricts the rights of individuals and parents to make health care decisions and limits human freedom and human potential.  The RH bill violates fundamental fairness and justice under the laws.  The RH bill is unconstitutional.

    RH Bill is just a waste of time. The Government of PH should be concentrating on how to eradicate the seemingly eternal problem in our society-RAMPANT CORRUPTION. We can’t solve a problem by creating another problem, in this case passing the RH Bill. It is another form of Corruption. If the Government is really serious about solving the issue of poverty in PH, Corruption should be addressed directly because it’s the paramount cause of all the sufferings people, especially the poor are dealing with in their everyday living. We shouldn’t be tricked with the disguise of overpopulation concern, but be determined to cut off the head of this evil giant snake-called Corruption in our society, from local to the national levels. Taxpayers’ monies shouldn’t be wasted on the implementation of RH Bill, but what the Government should be pursuing, with full conviction is to address the real issue of massive corruptions in all Government sectors. The tax payers’ monies should be collected properly & should be distributed to Government agencies with full accountability & utmost transparency to benefit the people, particularly the marginalized individuals in our society. The tax payers’ monies are more than enough to sustain the existence of our own people, if given a chance to get them through to the right channels-Govenment agencies in order to give opportunities to our citizens. Indeed, RH Bill is merely an alibi or excuse to avoiding in addressing the primary issue, the real cause of people’s suffering that is CORRUPTION.

    • mamer2

      Another case of “Mis-information” being handed down by the “anti-RH”.

      Showing “statistics” that the Philippines’ population growth has slowed down is quite the opposite of the “EVER INCREASING” number of “street-children” that we see in urban-areas…, begging, living, roaming etc.

      • Guest

         mamer2, when growth slows down that is not equal to population decrease.

        Lower population growth rate still means growth, just the pace of the increase is slowing. Differentiate that!

        Example:

        You have 50 people. Add 100%, we then have 100 people. Now add 25% to the 100. That results in 125.  You see, the population growth slowed down but it still increases!
         
        There is a difference between relative growth and absolute growth. Relatively speaking, population growth rate decreased from 2% in the 1960s to just under 2% in recent years. The population doesn’t grow that fast anymore in relative terms but it  still grows. It is all simple math!

      • Jane Tan

        Hahaha… Well, they just look at the percentages. If people had half the common sense they were born with, just passing by Edsa gives you a good idea of how much our population is growing.

      How can you compare the population of a third world country (Philippines) to these economic hub countries (1st class). their population may be bigger than philippines but their economy can sustain that’s why they are classified as economic hubs.Why don’t you compare Philippines to same third world countries like Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand and others. For sure, among the third world countries, we are among the highest if not the highest. If you don’t have the figures, I can provide you.

    On closer examination, the rh bill signifies moral corruption and is only a smokescreen for the accumulated inability of the government, this administration included, to grapple with poverty and corruption directly.  The problem of poverty and corruption cannot be overcome by giving out free condoms and contraceptives — this better change the beliefs of rh supporters.  Clearly generating more jobs and opportunities for the very poor, putting more food on the table, more in law for the small man, more shirt on their backs, more roof over their heads, more livelihood opportunities, more relevant social and medical care, among the more important and impactful projects this government can do, should receive more focus and priority by government action.  Suppressing human births is an artificial human intervention which does not directly answer poverty; it is by utilizing and enabling the poor to be economically productive, its current human resource, who should be harnessed to economic productivity!  By putting one’s weight on the reproductive health bill when there are other ways more directly responsive, and upon the clear opposition by the Church, it doesn’t look good for Christian legislators to ride two horses and justify the same as “love for the poor.”  The “end does not justify the means,” and it is a wonder how Secretary Abad, as with some legislators, could justify their lack of openness to life with the task of a legislator.  First and foremost, a legislator’s job is defined by the Constitution and his entire orientation should be defined by his Christian calling and respect for life.  Concern for the poor can be done in other ways, not by suppressing human births by artificial contraception and free condoms against man’s very nature, against the Natural Law, moral laws and the commandments.

    Man has two basic instincts: self and race preservation.  Pro-rh legislators should not do unto others what they do not wish others do to them.  The rule of conscience for them should be: “do good and avoid evil”; and, no amount of rationalization can justify killing the unborn human for specious improvement of human lives, only because our security and good life are threatened by the existence of the poor “who multiply like rabbits.”  It is by uplifting hope that this government can muster for the poor, in a climate of equal opportunities and social justice that real, genuine concern for the poor is shown.  The virtues of temperance, abstinence and sobriety are necessary for the passage of man from mere animalistic passion to true humanism and it is here that legislation should focus, if ever.  There was a time when moral values were taught in public offices, hoping that values would bring changes in the behavior of public servants.  By improving the quality of life of the poor and by teaching moral values, you eventually teach them and inform them about the value of “responsibility” and not force artificial contraception on them, ostensibly to limit population; but, in truth only encouraging couples to act irresponsibly, open contraceptive use even to those who should not be practicing it, and cowtowing to the vile wishes of those who want a legal justification for debauchery behavior (no one will admit this; but they want God and the Church out of their sexual ethics and practices in the “bedroom”).

    While it is the duty of each one to personally work out his salvation, it doesn’t mean to say that the Church should just keeps quiet if her teachings are not followed.  Of course, despite the Church, people can continue with their evil ways on which, however, the Season of Advent reminds all and sundry to “make straight his paths.”  Maternal and child care are not against Catholic doctrine; but, really, it is the lack of facilities and services which mostly account for maternal mortality.  In fact, it is so much in accord with the doctrine on the sacredness of life.  It is more the failure of this government to provide primary and immediate care to mother and child that accounts more for maternal deaths.  So many mothers had more children than what pro-rh adherents would consider desirable, but they have lived because of proper medical care and freedom from poverty.  Provisions on this matter could more properly amend existing laws, not create a multiplicity of laws which are not necesary, only because one’s pet peeve had to get attention as a law he authored, not really for its long term advantage for this country and its women and population and national “moral” future. National values, aspirations and identity as a people could vanish with artificial contraception over time.

    NO TO THE RH BILL ON THIRD READING IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.  NO TO THE SUPPRESSION OF LIFE.  YES TO HOPE AND SOCIAL JUSTICE.  NO TO STUBBORN AND BLINDED THRUST TOWARDS A CONTRACEPTIVE CULTURE.  No to a sudden rupture from Filipino values, human, moral and spiritual. Yes, to docility and obedience to the collective wisdom of the CBCP.  Yes, to life and to God.

    • ApoLapullapu

      And because corruption continue to prevail over everything in the Country, the contraceptives may not even work because fake pills, condoms that easily tear and other substandard products will be bought by corrupt procurement officials.  Post audit  by corrupt COA  Auditors will not also work.

    We posted a comment earlier, but it disappeared. We have known Senate President Enrile to be was once upon a time a smart trial lawyer, whose duty was to argue before the court a convincing argument with facts, etc. to defend his clients. But, with his stance against the RH-BILL, talking about protection of life, innocent unborn, the RH BILL is all for it. As we have said before, FERTILIZATION of any contraceptive method prevents the union of the male sperm and the female ova to a viable fetus, hence there is no innocent unborn to talk about. So, for Senator Enrile’s stubbornness to go to the Supreme Court at a later date to argue it’s constitutionality is a “WASTE of TIME” especially when it will be defeated resoundingly by the LEGISLATORS in the House of Representatives and the Senate Chamber. We guess age is catching up, and it is everybody’s conclusion that Senate President Enrile must resign or retire as a “GRACEFUL EXIT” before he becomes a kind of PULUTAN (talking topic) in every drinking spree or every social gathering. As a friendly advice, Senator President Enrile, please do an honorable thing to resign or retire ASAP, because your days are numbered, and don’t wait that the majority of the Senators will be ganging up to remove and replace you.

      A Christian conscience does not avoid criticism or face the fear of even death.  Conviction stands tall even at the risk of being misunderstood.  Conception begins at fertilization and it is not correct to impose our own mental construct from where life begins.  There is already movement or “life” from the time the ovum is fertilized by a sperm so that it can swim to the uterus and implant itself in the endometrium. A zygote is not just a non-entity, my friend.

      • wawangpenoy

         If this is your distorted logic, then ban masturbation, because the sperm is also a living thing. don’t know if you’re a lawyer but you sound like one. whenever you take side, you defend that side with all philosophical hogwash.

      • tamumd

        What an ignorant remark from a religiotard! “There is already movement or life from the time the ovum is fertilized by a sperm so that it can swim to the uterus and implant itself in the endometrium”. I would believe your b..s if you specialized in chemotaxis, diapedesis and Brownian motion. So sense your basis for life is “movement” everytime we bleed or we have wound we murder our white blood cells because they move by chemotaxis and diapedesis. Everytime a cancer cell metastasize and we treat it with chemotherapy we murder a “life”. Well hello…most of the cells in our body move. That’s how they grow and heal and work. The movement of the fertilized egg is actually facilitated by the forward rhythmic contraction of the Fallopian tube and the uterus. It doesn’t have a brain to think where to go. lol In fact more than 50% of them don’t make it to implantation.

      • zahraff

        Hey smart guy, FERTILIZATION has not occurred yet (and there is no zygote formed) because there was never been any union of the male sperm and the female ova, do you understand?

      • Jane Tan

        So… if the contraceptive is just meant to prevent the sperm from fertilizing the ovum, then… its not breaking any laws, right?

        As such, the RH Bill does not violate this rule.

        Our Constitution has already defined where life begins. If you have problem with our Constitution, change it.

    It took Britain about 150 years to double GDP per capita, the US about 50 years, and Japan about 30 years. It is taking China and India about 20 years to double GDP per capita. Population growth has resulted in economies of scale and brought economic growth. The fast-growing economy of the Philippines is being driven by its youthful population. The Philippines is the third fastest-growing economy, after China and India. Its fast-growing economy is expanding the middle class.  More people are getting out of extreme poverty.  Women and poor families will be the biggest beneficiaries of the fast-growing economy, which the RH bill will only stall or reverse.  The “slum-view” economic analysis in support of the RH bill is a distortion of the economic trends of the Philippines. Traveling outside the Manila slums will provide a more realistic perspective of the increasingly vibrant Philippine economy.

      “Traveling outside Manila slums will provide a more realistic perspective of the increasingly vibrant economy”…really? I wonder where you go.To your mansion in Tagaytay? Poor farmers depending on subsistence farming is everywhere in the countryside. Their yields are getting smaller every day as we are becoming constant victim of typhoons, flooding and draught. Fishermen are complaining of meager catch coz of over harvested fish stocks. NO wonder we even import galunggong now. Those people in the rural areas might not suffer from overcrowding but they are as dirt poor as their urban cousins. So wake up.

      You are assuming that it is population growth that has brought economic growth.  That is incorrect.  Economic growth is brought by a whole range of factors.  We have long had a big growing population but we have also been lagging behind our asian neighbors and was for a long time considered “the sick man of asia.”  It is only lately that we are experiencing a healthier economy.

    RH Bill This RH Bill is a reduplication of what were
    taught to us during our high school days. Our high school mentors
    taught us sex education, family planning, contraceptive methods and
    population explosion. However, we prefer to have more children even
    though our income is not enough. Many Filipinos have an attitude of
    “PASUWAY”. We love to counter any law or bill which will be
    against our will. We have to throw RH bill into the garbage thrash
    bin. Senator Pia Cayatano is only wasting your time in RH bill
    propaganda and she is wasting Filipino’s tax payer money in this
    useless bill.

  • Albert Einstien

    the problem with PRO-RH legislators & BLIND followers ( mostly yellow zombies with mcbook ) they dont even know what a CLASS LEGISLATION is …and they still keep on pushing for it…..DESPITE for its APPARENT unconstitutionality…..we should ONLY allow LAWYERS to be lawmakers at least they have BASIC understanding of the LEGAL environment……..

     
    RH BILL is UNCONSTITUTIONAL…..it is a CLASS LEGISLATION…..anti-poor .. it will be burried in oblivion when SC will stab it in it’s heart……KILLING the POOR..is unconstitutional…….!

    • joshmale2004

      Not so fast my friend.
      Class legislation refers to legislation that applies to certain persons or class of persons, either natural or artificial, or to certain districts of territory or state. Class legislation violates equal protection guaranteed through the fourteenth amendment of the U.S. Constitution. An Act enacted in the form of private act for the benefit of certain individual is an example of class legislation.

      RH Bill does not qualify in any of the definition above. Assuming somebody question the RH Bill with the SC, then even previous and existing laws on Family Planning, Responsible Parenthood and other health bills will also become questionable laws. However, Class Legislation was derived in the US Constitution which also has a law on Reproductive health. Knowing US, if this is illegal, US lawyers would have already questioned this law to their SC.

      • joshmale2004

        Yes correct. it will be SC who will render final decision. But I am not conforming to your presumption that it is unconstitutional. By the time this reach the SC, my prediction, I say prediction, is it will be dismissed. As to the anti poor aspect, this have to be determined first by the SC.

    Albert Einstein said:

    “we should ONLY allow LAWYERS to be lawmakers at least they have BASIC understanding of the LEGAL environment”

    You
    talk about unconstitutionality but your demand is fully
    unconstitutional. In this type of democracy, the parliament should
    represent the make-up of the people and the people don’t only consist of
    lawmakers.

    • Albert Einstien

      see those  kind of  BLINDed attacks is destroying our country…..maybe because you see the WORD ” ONLY   ” ….you concluded in an INSTANT it is unconstitutional……. to illuminate you…..there is so CALLED ELECTION…….where people may choose ONLY  lawyers to be lawmakers because they have basic legal understanding…

      my ADVICE to you sir when you lookdown at people or looking at a PICTURE make sure to LOOK & UNDERSTAND everything…not ONLY   the FACE, back , part or small area of it like  the FOREIGN imposed RH genocidal bill….look at the WHOLE PICTURE…!

  • Albert Einstien

    maybe because church is involved people tend to look at the ISSUE at hand as pro or anti life…..they keep on debating where life begins…..this kind of argument is just secondary…

    Now that’s it’s no longer a question of whether the RH bill would
    be enforced, the next question is would its nationwide enforcement
    produce the good results expected from it after all these years?

    Only one thing is for sure, the poor people’s sex lives will never
    be the same. And the Catholic hierarchy will be fuming over this
    endlessly, especially if legions of people want out of their

    Aquino is making a joke out of his ownself by infusing and using responsible parenthood as an excuse to embolden the less fortunate and less educated people to support the RH Bill. Why Mr. Aquino are cory and ninoy irresponsible that’s why you came out with that insinuation? Our parents most of us but one or two, are all responsible, the very problem when poverty struck to every household was due to the fact that we children did not do our role as they envisioned and advised us to do. Like me as a quintessence, I was stubborn as a mule not to be diligent in my studies as per advice so in short I failed to become somebody now nonetheless, I kept on prodding my kids and my grandchildren about education, discipline and values as their daily bread en route to a better life and harmony in the country
    and mind you Mr. Aquino my tact wasn’t taught by the RH Bill. 

    I am not an exception, I strongly believe that everyone is also doing what I’m doing and maybe better so in this context Mr. Aquino, you’re totally wrong in your postulation about responsible parenthood I have 9 children and many grandchildren and due to our strong faith though we as a family aren’t perfect in life, we are alive and kicking and very much doing well though. As believers we, condemn the RH Bill since it runs counter to the teachings in the Holy Bible. May God bless you Mr Aquino for your irresponsible advise to postulate on responsible parenthood

    • acidicboy

       I wish the squatter family outside our residence, who are allegedly drug users too, are as also “alive and kicking and very much doing well though” while their (at last count) 7 kids are half naked outside, taking a bath in the rain puddles, playing on top of construction materials and piles of garbage, and stopping and begging for money and food from every pedestrian walking by.

      May I pose this question and hoping you might not get offended. You say RH Bill runs counter to the teachings of the bible. If this is so, how come only the Catholic Church is doing everything to fight the RH Bill? How about other religions like JIL, El Shadai, Christian Ecumenical Movements, Protestants, Lutherans, Jehovah’s witness, INC, Mormons, Muslims, Aglipayans, and others who are silent on the issues of RH Bill. does this mean, they don’t know the Bible? Or the truth is that the RH Bill runs counter to the teaching of Catholic doctrine?

        Catholics are human beings, just like you and me. And I did not say or branded them as anything!

        For me, they are still precious people worthy of GOD’s grace.

        You accused Christians of “self righteousness” with malice. Yet, you are insinuating that we don’t care for our fellowmen in relation with the “freedom of choice”. Too shallow! and this can not hold water.

        I’ll tell you the truth, “darkness” can never be in association with the “light”. The “lies” can never be in agreement with the “truth”. And “evil” can never be allied with “good”.

        The choice is yours!

        One more thing. The “stability” of our own “backyard” had been strengthened with all the premises just cited above. In other words, we started in our own turf. That’s why Christian influence and views are projected globally to at least “reach” the lost.

        What is happening worldwide shall be in direct “collision” with Christian evangelism. We expected that!

    Hopefully, this RH Bill once implemented won’t in no way merit to scare  and make us wrangle again on its efficacy to showboat the mouthed words of the authors in both houses including their dyed in the wool supporters. Praying, though I’m a fervid Anti because of my firm belief that it’s against God’s words, that at the end of the day, all parents concerned will become responsible as Aquino stressed so that all of us with exclusion probably of a few  would be living in a condition of wellness and prosperity as inscribed by the proponents to be the goals of this Bill.

    But if it would be a reversal presupposing though but not praying for arguments sake, that after the rh’s implementation, it proved as the stones were turned to be a dud or fake from its maiden existence and simply was an invention of unscrupulous authors with minds to hoodwink the public just to foster their evil agenda then the nation would surely be singing the blues or be wailing out loudly like a wounded calf about to be eaten by ravaging lion.

    What would be their faces? Simply creating a metaphor which I, again as an Anti won’t ever pray for but in lieu of it, I fervently pray and hope that after the dust had settled, everything would be well as the proponents had imbibed to all in sundry as a reason so that our country and us can move forward to a better life

    Enrile seems to have conceded to the fact that the RH bill will most likely be passed in the Senate since the pro-RH bill senators have the numbers. He must also realize that the House and Senate votes should always reflect the will and sentiment of the Filipino people. 80% of Filipinos are in favor of the bill. With public support that high, legislators who voted against the RH bill can kiss their political ambitions GOODBYE!

      • raptor_d_lonewolf

        as i have said before to another blogger here…..the pork barrel or pdaf  is already in place (it is always in the annual budget & the lolongs are making sure of ti) way before the RH bill came into the fore. whether you take or not the pork barrel ti will still be given to these tongressman. not unless you return it or reject to accept the your pdaf.

      • EF2012

        I see. Thanks for the clarification.

        I can’t wait to see how this voting would turn out so we could all move forward. I support MOST of the provisions — good intentions — that the bill offers. On the other hand, I am a bit iffy about its implementation.

        Policy-making has never been a straightforward notion. It baffles me how most people think that everything is just an if-then-else brouhaha. Smart alecks.

    Do you really think the CBCP knows what morals you should be following, when they’ve exploited both the Connecticut killings and Typhoon Pablo to use against the RH Bill? (With the Batangas Archbishop comparing PNoy to the shooter, and another saying Typhoon Pablo was a sign from God against the RH Bill).

    Exploiting human death and suffering to further one’s agenda against the RH Bill, is that christian? Is that the morality this country should have?

    Breast cancer or other cancer (now or in the past, or family history). Oral contraceptives may make some existing cancers worse. Women with a family history of breast cancer may need more frequent screening for the disease if they decide to take birth control pills.Migraine headaches. This condition may improve or may get worse with the use of birth control pills.
    Diabetes. Blood sugar levels may increase slightly when oral contraceptives are used. Usually this increase is not enough to affect the amount of diabetes medicine needed. However, blood sugar will need to be monitored closely while taking oral contraceptives.
    Depression. This condition may worsen in women who already have it or may (rarely) occur again in women who were depressed in the past.
    Gallbladder disease, gallstones, high blood cholesterol, or chorea gravidarum (a nervous disorder). Oral contraceptives may make these conditions worse.Epilepsy, high blood pressure, heart or circulation problems. By increasing fluid build-up, oral contraceptives may make these conditions worse.
    God bless the poor who cannot afford healthcare for themselves but are given poison for their body instead of food on the table for their children!

      On the other hand, the inherent concern of some anti-RH compatriots lies on the idea of obliging them to “contribute” to what they think and believe is wrong — through tax payments. Unfortunately, our system does not allow us to personally appropriate to specific sectors our own contributions (taxes) to the government.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SPLUBLEOSERDBOIJTDOC6XIWGU mxsclxmxn

    Can the poor family properly follow this? Majority of them will be a failure. No food on the table. Less educated. They can skip and miss their pills resulting to pregnancy; unwanted pregnancy.
    PrecautionsNo form of birth control (except not having sex) is 100% effective. However, oral contraceptives can be highly effective when used properly.

        For your information, we know where our love offerings are going. I have observed our church from a small one without roof top to now with many Branches and 1 Church can accommodate a thousand church goers. they have their own schools now and are giving free education for elementary. We have sent more than a hundred scholars now and are already pastors with their own Church. More scholars are being sent to study at IBS. The Church lately have branched out in other countries including the USA.
        Now, what can I say to your Church? For as long as I can remember, your churches are still from the old spanish era and the expense of your priests are only renovations and up keep. So where are the millions being kept by your priests? The answer is in the above post you are rebutting. Your Church have even investments in illegal mining and logging that already brought calamities to poor people within the area of operation. Our churches do not have those kinds of investments as the money voluntary given by members are always in use for the good and expanding the word of Christ.

      RH bill is not serving the country good but instead destroying the very core of it.  Legalized abortion is legalize murder of unborn children.  These unborn children has the right to live.  Anybody that can see the video of an unborn child trying to evade the instrument to extricate him can really see the heinous murder happening in an abortion

      • Emmannuel Gozon

        m. While nothing in this Act changes the law on abortion, as abortion
        remains a crime and is punishable, the government shall ensure that
        women seeking care for post-abortion complications shall be treated and
        counseled in a humane, non-judgmental and compassionate manner.

        Now, explain to us how RH Bill legalizes abortion.

      • Emmannuel Gozon

        I doubt about your reasoning. RH Bill allows couples to have an informed choice regarding family planning, so that unwanted pregnancies and abortion will be prevented. And what are the signs that you are stating with regards to de-criminalization of abortion?

    Hindi naman nakikialam ang mga bishops sa gusto ng mag-asawa, dahil alam nila hanggang pangaral lang sila. Pero ang ayaw nila, maging batas as RH Bill na open sa interpretation para sa legalized abortion. Saka di na dapat gobyerno pa ang bumili ng contraceptives. Kung gusto ng mag-asawa, sila na ang bumili. Kung available ang condom na libre, pati kabataan gagamit nyan.

    Kaya ako di ko iboboto lahat ng UNA senotariables sa 2013 dahil di nila sinusuportahan ang gobyerno at marami silang GMA candidates.

    • Janch

      Binay is not making a stand on the rh bill.  he doesn’t want to be embroiled in the controversy that way he does not get criticised.  (His daughter in the house of reps, however, voted against it.) He will make a stand only after the bill is either passed or rejected.  That way he can assess which side is more popular with the voting public and claim to be on that side.  Ma-utak yan. 

  • floroy

    it is a shame that our catholic(?) president is really pushing for this bill. i’m sorry i voted for him. he did not value his mother’s heritage as well as the values and beliefs of our forefathers. He stepped over the bounds separating the Church and the state by promoting a bill that strikes the core of our catholic faith, the respect and the sanctity of life, that life is a gift from God that should be protected over economic or political considerations. So sorry Mr. President, you are missing something here.

        You said RH Bill is not the answer. The solution to that is seminars and teaching among the poor about good family planning.

        Your suggestion of seminar is but one of the many options that can be availed in the RH Bill. After the seminar, it will be the family who will decide what is good for them. If they don’t want any of the options in the RH Bill, they can walk away anytime. Seems you are in contradiction with your self.

      It’s irresponsible to keep rearing children you can’t provide a life for. When you can’t feed them, clothe them, give them an education, a future, you shouldn’t be having them. Some of it is because they don’t know about family planning, some of it is because they’ve been told it’s evil or harmful. Either way, we need the RH Bill because it’s not just about giving birth to children, it’s the responsibility of every parent to provide for them adequately. You don’t bring kids into the world to work for you as free labor

    I really can’t understand why Pnoy is pushing for this RH bill when all the other prosperous countries are junking their own RH bill.  This is a dangerous bill which will lead to the abuse and more abortions and murders of unborn children.  This will lead to more promiscuity among the teenage population because there is always that abortion that they can go to in case of pregnancy.  Enrile is right that the bill is unconstitutional because it is against the right to live of the unborn babies.  The people should remember all these pro-RH bill congressmen and senators.  They are heartless and have no respect for human lives.  They should be junked in the next election

    • Mark Philip Wu

      Leads to more promiscuity? In the US, states with abstinence only education are the states with the highest teen pregnancy rate. And is the Philippines not the country with the highest teen pregnancy rate in SEA? So much for abstinence and “christian values” being more effective

      • Mark Philip Wu

        Abstinence-only education does not lead to abstinent behavior, UGA researchers find -  States that prescribe abstinence-only sex education programs in public schools have significantly higher teenage pregnancy and birth rates than states with more comprehensive sex education programs, researchers from the University of Georgia have determined.
        The researchers looked at teen pregnancy and birth data from 48 U.S. states to evaluate the effectiveness of those states’ approaches to sex education, as prescribed by local laws and policies.
        “Our analysis adds to the overwhelming evidence indicating that abstinence-only education does not reduce teen pregnancy rates,” said Kathrin Stanger-Hall, assistant professor of plant biology and biological sciences in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences.

      • Mark Philip Wu

        Along with teen pregnancy rates and sex education methods, Hall and Stanger-Hall looked at the influence of socioeconomic status, education level, access to Medicaid waivers and ethnicity of each state’s teen population.
        Even when accounting for these factors, which could potentially impact teen pregnancy rates, the significant relationship between sex education methods and teen pregnancy remained: the more strongly abstinence education is emphasized in state laws and policies, the higher the average teenage pregnancy and birth rates.
        “Because correlation does not imply causation, our analysis cannot demonstrate that emphasizing abstinence causes increased teen pregnancy. However, if abstinence education reduced teen pregnancy as proponents claim, the correlation would be in the opposite direction,” said Stanger-Hall.
        The paper indicates that states with the lowest teen pregnancy rates were those that prescribed comprehensive sex and/or HIV education, covering abstinence alongside proper contraception and condom use. States whose laws stressed the teaching of abstinence until marriage were significantly less successful in preventing teen pregnancies.

    There is really NO independence in the senate/congress, all is about QUID-PRO-QUO and the PORK!  Come election time, use your vote wisely.  Don’t vote for TOOL senators and congressmen/women.  As simple as that.  And it’s not vindictiveness nor retribution (of the Tuwad Na Daan), it’s just an excercise of the right to suffrage (to choose/vote) as granted by the Constitution.

    Napansin nyo ba na ang against sa RH bill ay puro sa partido ni Binay? Political decision at di religious belief ito. Ayaw nila maging successful si Pnoy para sigurado panalo nila sa 2016. Ano ba stand ni Binay sa RH, Sin Tax at Impeachment? Silence and no support means against sya dito.
    Kaya ako di ko iboboto lahat ng UNA senotariables sa 2013 dahil di nila sinusuportahan ang gobyerno at marami silang GMA candidates. Walang kwentang politiko ang mga UNA kase gagawin nila lahat ng paraan para mabigo si PNOY para sa sarili nilang kapakanan at di sila nakikinig sa gusto ng sambayanan kagaya ng Sin Tax at RH bill. More than 80% Filipino ang may gusto ng RH at Sin Tax Bill pero ayaw pakinggan ng mga UNA at ni Binay. 
    I can see Binay worse than GMA if elected in 2016.

    I agree to most if not all your insights here. Might i just add that the key toaddressing this population issue is to develop regions, provinces andmunicipalites through equal distribution of nations wealth and prioritize thosethat generate much local resource or production for income generation.
    Equal or rationalized distribution will be much effectively implemented with a CHANGE TOFEDERAL FORM OF GOVERNMENT. Unlike in our system today that Local Governmentsjust receive IRA that beholdens them to the central government that it promotesmuch politicking and corruption. What we have today is a half-baked system of government. Kungkumukopya tayo dapat yung buo tapos i-improve to suit our tribal structures.

    Then we should focus on issues that encroaches on our sovereignity, like bordertrading and security issues. Masyado tayong divided, only an issue like Pacquiaogenerally keeps us in united.

    Dapat palakasin ang implementation ng CHILD ABANDONMENT as a criminal act. Imprison parents that commits abortion, parents that leave children out in the streets or dangerous environment, parents that leave children without adult care in homes, etc. Abortion should qualify for two(2) criminal offense, that is “murder” and “child abandonment”. Tingnannatin kung dadami pang unwanted pregnancy and vagrants. Itong CHILD ABANDONMENTang makakatulong duon sa CHILD PROTECTION LAW ni Sen.Pangilinan. Maramingsocial issues ang masasagot ng pinalakas at properly implemented CHILD ABANDONMENT Law or it should be INCLUDED in THE CHILD PROTECTION LAW of Pangilinan as an AMENDMENT

    • Jane Tan

      As I’m not proficient in such matters, how would you determine who an abandoned child’s parents are?

        In our goverment system the authorities to handle such identification cases or locating/determining persons would be the local community, Barangay, City Social Work Service, POLICE or NBI will be the prime moverss at different levels of implementation. So these authorities should be well trained to be registered CHILD ABANDONMENT expert.

    The numbers above clearly shows PH high population growth rate compared to other countries. The RH bill will not only balance the population growth of PH, but also raise the per capita  GDP of every Filipino, and therefore his living standards.

    Pass the RH bill now.

    • Emmannuel Gozon

        Very well stated. Our GDP is low compared to other countries. If the
      population of our country continue to rise with that growth rate, income
      per person will decrease and many families will suffer.

      Overpopulaton is a serious problem that we must address. I really don’t understand those priests why they are against this bill.

      Hahahahahaha!
      Ano ka International Statistics Office?  Ibig sabihin kung ang population ay rising, ibig sabihin na-overcome nito ang mortality rate sa panganganak pa lang at health risks…di ba yan ang isa pang sangkap ng RH Bill.  Ibig sabihin lang naman, talagang gustong controllin ang populasiyon.  Di man health o ekonomiya.  Numero kasi ng walang trabaho dadami kasi tutolog-tulog ang batugan na presidente.
      Padamihin mo na lang lahi ni Noynoy…kaya lang kahit babaero daw wala namang ebidensiya (gaya nina Dolphy at Erap).  Hahahahahaha!

      • Emmannuel Gozon

        RH Bill does not control the population. As stated in the revision, “To create an enabling environment for women and couples to make an
        informed choice regarding the family planning method that is best suited
        to their needs and personal convictions;”.

        I hope you understand the word “Informed choice”. The “couple” and not the government will decide the number of children they want to have as long as they can provide their needs.

    • mfdo

      You are right and then again, a lot of nay sayers will call on the wrath of Gods, in their defense, simply because they can’t be bothered to fix the wrongs in the country .. after all, the more population, the more poorer population, the better the opportunity to throw money and win them over .. and wonder what JPE is on – as if more population means more powerful defence – so tell me again, Singapore has 100 times more powerful air force, modern navy with submarines, and state of the art army – all with a huge bloated, hard to feed poverty striken population ?

      get real people – RH will develop the country to bringing in responsible parenthood, instead of baby machines and in turn breeding robbers, thieves and orphan children of the lesser previleged .. the lesser previleged who desperately need a universal health care to give them the option to not have a child, whether it happens by accident or by force (like rape or taken advantage of .. )

      All the old school of JPE must step aside .. and it at all there is something I salute PNoy for, it is for the staunch PRO RH stand ..

      Ask any doctor or medical professional – seek their opinion, and you will see how much they favour RH – not those of Clergy and politicians who are pulling stuff from the air and calling on God’s wrath ..

    Laws must have provisions setting objectives of the law and gauges for measurement of success in meeting the objectives within a specified period of time and if the objectives are not met within the prescribed period, the law must be nullified to avoid waste of public funds.

    When can we say that a nation is overpopulated?  Noynoy answers are these:
    1) When the resources is not enough to cover the population, as explained in GDP/per capita/and other factors;
    2) When the government cannot anymore think how to utilize the resources vis-a-vis the annual growth rate of the population;
    3) When I can’t think of the catalyst that would be necessary for the economic growth;
    4) When I am pushed by the UN to pass the RH Bill given irrelevant data and scare economic scenarios, a diplomatic QUID-PRO-QUO;
    5) When all the statistics, as explained to me, that I took hook-line-&-sinker, draws irrelevant conclusions that would mislead to the passage of RH Bill
    6)  Because I’m a tool, and would remain a tool…
    Hahahahahahaha!

    ” He warned that the country might not have a sufficient number of

    Here’s some news Philippines….they no longer do battle with sticks and stones and use nuclear weapons and other high tech instruments of death. Or Mr. Enrile are you suggesting we should breed like rabbits as we are expecting a land invasion, where we will sacrifice our endless numbers until their bullets run out?

    Napansin nyo ba na ang against sa RH bill ay puro sa partido ni Binay? Political decision at di religious belief ito. Ayaw nila maging successful si Pnoy para sigurado panalo nila sa 2016. Ano ba stand ni Binay sa RH, Sin Tax at Impeachment? Silence and no support means against sya dito.
    Kaya ako di ko iboboto lahat ng UNA senotariables sa 2013 dahil di nila sinusuportahan ang gobyerno at marami silang GMA candidates. Walang kwentang politiko ang mga UNA kase gagawin nila lahat ng paraan para mabigo si PNOY para sa sarili nilang kapakanan at di sila nakikinig sa gusto ng sambayanan kagaya ng Sin Tax at RH bill. More than 80% Filipino ang may gusto ng RH at Sin Tax Bill pero ayaw pakinggan ng mga UNA at ni Binay. 
    I can see Binay worse than GMA if elected in 2016.

    Lipa Archbishop Ramon Arguelles reportedly compared President Aquino to the Connecticut shooter for having supported the RH bill. 
    Do you remember that some Bishops stated that GMA is liked Jesus Christ?
    I think you also know that many Bishops received Pajeros from GMA and against People Power.
    Ano na nangyayare sa mga pareng ito? Para na silang mga modern day Damaso.

    @Psiitoon Charoenkrung
    I agree to most if not all your insights here. Might i just add that the key to addressing this population issue is to develop regions, provinces and municipalites through equal distribution of nations wealth and prioritize those that generate much local resource or production for income generation. Equal or rationalized distribution will be much effectively implemented with a CHANGE TO FEDERAL FORM OF GOVERNMENT. Unlike in our system today that Local Governments just receive IRA that beholdens them to the central government that it promotes much politicking and corruption. What we have today is a half-baked system of government. Kung kumukopya tayo dapat yung buo tapos i-improve to suit our tribal structures. Then we should focus on issues that encroaches on our sovereignity, like border trading and security issues. Andyan na ang China inu-unti unti na tayo dahil sa division natint at walang protocol na sinusunod tungkol sa foreign concerns. Masyado tayong divided, only an issue like Pacquiao generally keeps us united.
     
    Dapat palakasin ang implementation ng CHILD ABANDONMENT as a criminal act. Imprison parents that commits abortion, parents that leave children out in the streets or dangerous environment, parents that without adult care in homes. Abortion should qualify for two(2) criminal offense, that is “murder” and “child abandonment”. Tingnan natin kung dadami pang unwanted pregnancy and vagrants. Itong CHILD ABANDONMENT and makakatulong duon sa CHILD PROTECTION LAW ni Sen.Pangilinan. Maraming social issues ang masasagot ng pinalakas at properly implemented CHILD ABANDONMENT LAW
