MANILA, Philippines – Both chambers of Congress passed on third and final reading Monday night the Reproductive Health Bill that would provide government funding for contraceptives and sexuality classes in schools.

The landmark measure was approved despite strong opposition by the Catholic Church, which said the measure would destroy family life.

Voting 13-8 with no abstention, the Senate passed the RH bill on third and final reading.

At the House of Representatives, lawmakers voted 133 to 79 with seven abstention to approve its version of the measure. There were 199 legislators present during the voting.

The 13 senators who voted in favor of the bill were:  Edgardo Angara, Joker Arroyo, Alan Peter Cayetano, Pia Cayetano,  Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Franklin Drilon, Francis “Chiz” Escudero, Teofisto Guingona III, Panfilo “Ping” Lacson, Loren Legarda, Ferdinand “Bong-Bong” Marcos Jr., Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan and Ralph Recto.

The eight who voted against it were:  Senate President Juan Ponce-Enrile,  Senate Pro Tempore Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada,   Majority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto III,  Senators Gringo Honasan,  Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III,  Manuel “Manny” Villar, Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., and  Antonio “Sonny” Trillanes IV.

Senators Serge Osmena III and  Lito  Lapid were  absent during the voting.

Arroyo said he voted  yes “conditionally” as he  threatened to change his  vote if the amendments   by the Senate will not be retained in the bicameral conference committee.

He noted that the original versions of the Senate and the House of Representatives  were “onerous’ and “so provocative” that  one, he said,  could not expect the Catholic Church   to surrender its doctrinal and moral position on such a life and death issue without putting up a fight.

The bill without amendments, Arroyo said, was “vulnerable to constitutional challenge especially on religious  grounds.”

“The Court  may strike down even the good provisions along with the bad,”  he said.

And to address those weaknesses,  Arroyo said the Senate  introduced reasonable amendments to make sure the measure ‘less dogmatic, less provocative and more constitutionally accepted.”

“Many of these amendments were mislabelled as killer amendments. I can see none that  are,” he said.

“I hope they will be respected in the bicameral conference committee rather than dismissed out of hand for I shall change my vote I cast today should that happen. I vote yes, conditionally,” Arroyo added.

Meanwhile, Bishop Gabriel Reyes told reporters in an ambush interview after the voting that he observed some representatives who previously voted against the bill had changed their vote.

“Some [lawmakers] whom I know had gone to the other side,” Reyes said. Others had simply not attended, he said.

He alleged that there was pressure from Malacañang on lawmakers by threatening to hold their pork barrel if they vote against the bill.

Reyes also said that they are planning to file a case before the Supreme Court to question the bill on the grounds that it violates religious freedom.

He also said that they will continue to educate the people on the evils of the RH bill and urge them to reject contraceptives even if these are given free.

The bill languished in Congress for 10 years as legislators avoided upsetting the conservative bishops, who helped mobilize popular support for the 1986 “people power” revolt that toppled dictator Ferdinand Marcos and the 2001 overthrow of another president, Joseph Estrada.

But in a sign of changing times and attitudes, particularly across generations, reformist civil society groups and Aquino threw their weight behind the bill despite the threat of a backlash.

An independent survey in June last year found 68 percent of respondents agreed that the government should fund all means of family planning. An October survey of 600 teenagers in Manila, the capital, also carried out by the Social Weather Stations, found that 87 percent believed the government should provide reproductive health services to the poor.

The United Nations said early this year that the bill would help reduce an alarming number of pregnancy-related deaths, prevent life-threatening abortions and slow the spread of AIDS.

The UN Population Fund says 3.4 million pregnancies occur in the Philippines every year, half of which are unintended while a third are aborted, often in clandestine, unsafe and unsanitary procedures. It says 11 women die of pregnancy-related causes every day. Nearly 70 percent of women use no contraception at all.

Reproductive health programs are patchy and often unavailable to the poor. Some local governments have passed ordinances banning the sale of condoms and their distribution in health clinics.

“Many Filipino women have faced difficulties and sometimes death because of the absence of a comprehensive and consistent reproductive health policy. This law can change that,” said Carlos Conde, Asia researcher at New York-based Human Rights Watch.

After initially approving the bill last week 113-104 with three abstentions, the House of Representatives was expected to vote in favor of it Monday. The Senate was to separately vote on it Monday, after which the two versions were to later be reconciled and signed by Aquino.

House Deputy Speaker Eric Tanada said that 60 more lawmakers who were absent last week were expected to vote, but that he believed the measure would pass. With a report from AP

    RH Bill finally approved despite the collective pajero bishops’ strong lobbying and attacks…The Catholic Church was finally rebuked by the Filipino people..I heard one bishop even planning to take the case to the SC on the ground it violates religious freedom, oh my God, ridiculouc, what is this bishop talking about???He is either ignorant or a psychotic, the church must follow with the law…The Church is not above the law, they must abide after the debates have gone through lots of discussions, debates, attacks and threats from these so called morally good church and bishops pweeh…..Congratulations to the Philippines, thank you senators and congressmen for passing this law…Philippines we all must now move on and implement the law for it is good…

    • indiosbravos2002

    With the passing of this Rh bill, so PROUD to be  a FILIPINO, though I’m Catholic but not proud of my religion,….it’s suck.

    • indiosbravos2002

      The Catholic religion is awesome. Its the people leading it that sucks.

    • Facilitator1

      Same here. But PROUD to be a Catholic but not necessary proud of the current leaders of our church. Unfortunately, most of our church leaders are perceived less than admirable or pious. Too many accusations of wrongdoings and no corrective/disciplinary actions are taken against them. Either the accusations are true or not, the faithful will equate the church silence as a tacit approval. Ergo, a perception of a culture of impunity amongst “men of the cloth”…

      And to make matters worst, our church leaders are meddling to the affairs of the state/government. As a result, more likely than not, our spiritual leaders are found wanting and out of touch with the modern times. Para silang mga gitara, wala sa TONO–sintunado ang tunog…PEACE

    Well the Pro-RH has the number and I hope that the Church must respect the law of man. The separation of church and the state must be respected as it is embodied in the constitution. God gave us humans freedom to decide and the RH Bill is one that many of us want to be supported for positive reason. Now how the government make the bill work when it is signed by Pnoy into law is still  to be look forward into. It could be one of those useless laws that after spending so much time to debate, time, effort and spending lot’s of government resources. it could be a dud and will just die in its natural death. Hope that corruption in its implementing agency, the DOH and releases by DBM will not happen. The Bishops need not go to the supreme court, I suggest that they better wait for the result of implementation, kasuhan nila nang plunder ang umorder nang billion pesos na condoms at pills na substandard. Still I have my finger cross, I know Defensor and Cayetano will not take the implementation of the law sitting down, it must succeed.

  • ofwme2807

    Its about time the poor Filipino families must be given their choices and support from the government…The Catholic Church simply does not want this law to control the population of the Philippines simply because of power, greed…As it is now, 80-85% of Filipinos are Catholics so they want 80-85% of all born Filipino babies to become Catholic and add to their population, influences, power and greed…The Catholic Church has done not enough to feed poorest of the poor babies and families in the Philippines who live and die before they reach the age of 5…They only want to add their flock to get money from the people from church collections, services which are supposed to be free, they want to construct new parishes, build private controlled montessories, schools where they earn moneys and not pay government taxes…

  • cogito728sum

    Now that this piece of legislation needs only the President’s signature to become a law, the Catholic Church would do well to regain the affection of the flock and fill in the wide and deep chasm it had created by honouring the decision of the elected representatives of the people.  Enough of this meddling in secular affairs of society and concentrate more on their spiritual obligations to the faithful.  This is the only rational course of action left to these meddling bishops.  This impending law is a proof of modern society’s partial success in uplifting the interests of women who, for centuries, have been relegated to an inferior status in society because of religious beliefs.

    To the Filipino wife, mother, and daughter, felicitations on your coming to the equal of your western counterpart in achieving this vital aspect of your life, the right to personally decide what is best for your body and family free of a bothering conscience.  Welcome to modernity but make sure you do exercise this right prudently and without abuse.  In every right comes heavy responsibilities, just a reminder.  Thank you!

    • indiosbravos2002

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5UOZM4PWIDKO7G64HL3PPMXUTM Constantine

      Not yet. Another bicameral voting will be held for the house and the senate for the married version of the bill. Once it passed the final voting then it goes to the President who will surely sign it into law. Bishop Soc Villegas must be storming the high heavens now with prayers. I just hope Bishop Socrates will recant his statement that he considers as heroes Imelda Marcos, Mitos Magsaysay, Mikey Arroyo and JV Ejercito, because definitely they are villains!

They are supposed to be the chosen people but in Israel, they believe in the Father as the only God and most of them are Jews. Remember, the Roman Soldiers who then became Catholics after so many years were the ones who crucified Jesus and put him to death. Israel’s religion is the true religion, period!

      Hahahaha the devil…..if that’s the case your god is weak or non-existent! Whatever happened to all those prayers and rosaries? I guess they’re just that…..prayers and rosaries. lol Your church has suddenly become irrelevant.

        lol..so now you’re declaring me a god? Well I couldn’t wait for the offerings to me..specially money offerings. lol Wanna join us in the rejoicing and celebration? lol

    • Tony Deb

      What is your basis for saying so, dear Garote? Did god talk to you directly? If so you are delusional. If not, then your claim to be in possession of god’s truth is no better than anyone else’s. Your mindset, which causes you to think that those who do not share your beliefs are the devil’s followers, is truly despicable. So protestants such as Methodists, Episcopalians, etc. are the devils followers? Do you truly believe that? In the distant past, thank god we no longer live in the dark ages, your mindset had caused thousands to be tortured, literally pulled apart, drowned, and burnt to death. It is the mindset of a the Grand Inquisitor Torquemada, the religious fanatic par excellence. BTW the alias you have chosen speaks volumes for that is precisely the device used to silence the three martyred priests, Gomburza.

      • Garote

        Do you think that budgeting P14B yearly to buy cancer-causing contraceptive pills won’t cause thousands, if not millions of Filipinos, women and babies, to be drugged to death? Do you think PNoy and you are different from the Grand Inquisitor Torquemada and his minions because they used different methods (burning, drowning, etc) of murder, while you are using drugs? Killing of innocent, helpless people is always the handiwork of evil, which has many names: devil, satan, baal, lucifer, etc. Because a person hates any and all forms or methods of killing innocent human beings, he would be branded as “delusional”? Just think of the cancer-causing pills to be bought in billions of pesos EVERY YEAR for as long as the RH law wiil be in effect? These death-causing pills would be flooding the 78,000 barangays. Millions of Filipino women, young or old, would be taking these pills thinking they are safe. No sooner, deaths then begin to creep in one after another amongst the women. The harrowing sight of ashen pale-faced women in death beds, stricken with cancer illnesses, spreads wide in all barangays. Coffins and burials become a common occurrence, as many tears would be shed by the loved ones who survived the dead. Is Pnoy, pro-RH bill lawmakers and advocators, including you, any different?

    Hold your horses Folks! Another bicameral voting will be held for the House and the Senate for the married version of the bill. Once it passed the final voting then it goes to the President who will surely sign it into law. Bishop Soc Villegas must be storming the high heavens now with prayers. I just hope Bishop Socrates will recant his statement that he considers as heroes Imelda Marcos, Mitos Magsaysay, Mikey Arroyo and JV Ejercito, because definitely they are villains!

    i am for rh bill. pero nirerespeto ko ang desisyon ang ilang mga senador na ayaw sa rh. kung pakikinggan ang arguments nila di naman nila ayaw sa responsible parenthood, kundi ang ilang provisions na nasa bill. wala nga naman kasing perfect na batas. maganda ang arguments ni koko kanina at ng amendments na gusto ni trillanes. ang di ko lang maintidihan ay kung san nakukuha ni sotto ang lakas ng loob nya para ipagmalaki arguments nya. napaka-illogical. si estrada naman bakit boboto ng ayon sa gusto nya at nang hindi ayon sa gusto at kailangan ng bayan?

    Tingnan mo nga naman itong anti RH bill na mga artistang Senador. Sila ang maraming mga anak sa labas at mga kalunya pero kunwari ay para sa Diyos sila. Dapat maintindihan ng Catholic church na maraming sekta ng pananampalataya dito sa Pilipinas. Hindi lamang mga Katoliko ang mga Pinoy.  May Iglesia ni Cristo, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Protestante, 7th day Adventists, Iglesia ng Diyos kay Cristo Hesus at iba-iba pang relihiyon. Hindi dominante ng Katoliko ang mga Pinoy dahil iba iba ang relihiyon natin. Dapat mamulat sa katotohan ang Katolikong simbahan. Kaya may freedom of religion sa atin ay para pumili ng tamang relihiyon. At isa pa at uulitin ko… WALANG UNIFIED CATHOLIC VOTE SA PILIPINAS!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VPSXDLCQEZGZDJSX32G7PYHNCI Noel

        Ang rh bill ay nandiyan para sa mga mamayan at ang mamamayan ang magdedesisyon alinsunod sa paniniwala nila.  Walang karapatan ang mga naniniwala sa turo ng simbahang katoliko na ipagkait ang mga serbisyong iniaalay sa rh bill sa mga taong may ibang paniniwala.  Lalo na sa mga pamilyang mahihirap na gusto, nangangailangan nito pero walang pera para dito.

        If it will be signed into law, the allocation for this law from the GAA is not all for contraceptives.
        Granting without accepting that all funding for this law is for contraceptives, which one will you choose? Gamitin tax mo pambili ng condom and other contraceptives para sa malilibog nating kababayan o gamitin tax mo pambili ng mga classrooms, books, chairs, tables, medicines, etc. ng mga magiging anak ng malilibog nating kababayan?

    So who says there’s a Catholic vote?  Where’s that?  Despite the intense pressure and lobbying by the Catholic Church, the only church that vehemently opposes the RH Bill while other Christian groups are in favor, the Bishops now have to remove their sheep’s clothing.

     

  • wawangpenoy

    The will of God has finally prevailed. The church, particularly the CBCP, should respect this. Now they know that PABLO was a message to CBCP and not otherwise. Don’t be sore losers. Be man enough (I guess this is a tall order) to accept defeat and better for you to concentrate on reforming your ways and making amends so that most, if not all, of the catholic prodigals may yet have a change of heart and go back to catholicism just like myself. 

    I will observe and be very scrutinizing about the ways of the church from this day on. If there’s anything worthwhile for me to go back to the fold of the RCC then I will, otherwise, I will remain a free thinker who believes in a loving God who is not punitive, not vengeful and can not be offended, but not in organized religion.

    I have a confession to make. I don’t really care about the RHB. Arguments from both sides have their merits but the only thing I’m really very interested in is to see the church relegated to irrelevance. Now I’m very happy. It feels like all  the oppressions that everybody from the DAMASO days of the spanish friars till today, has experienced in the hands of these pathological liars in cloth have been more than made up for.  Filipinos have now been unshackled from the chain of the myth that was the catholic church.

    Finally after many years of fight and straggling RH Bill is accepted. I think the Church did not see the sendong last year and the Typhoon this year. Simple question who died ? Poor families with 6-7 children they disappear in seconds. Why the Church does not take care of these people instead of involving themselves in the politics. Enough is enough .Time has come also to implement the divorce law, we are the only country left behind. Priests must be in the Church not in the streets. Why they accept cars ? why they try to influence the politicians ? Today the young generation is more alert, they have more information, and they understand the difficulties of life better. Let the people decide for themselves , let the family decide how many kids they want.
    Progress, discipline and perseverance are the key for this country to be successful in the future.

  • flip1sba

    I’m a father of two children. Originally we are already contended with our little son, but unfortunately, he’s by himself and has no one to play with, especially in our neighborhood, so we decided to have a 2nd child which became a girl.

    After that, we decided that 2 kids is enough. We don’t need any more.

    My wife had a hard time during her pregnancy with our 2nd child. She had gestational diabetes and was confined 5 days in the hospital due to bleeding caused by a low lying placenta.

    But with good healthcare, a good hospital and of course, good and caring doctors, she managed to give birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl a few days back and was able to recover fast and go home.

    Both my wife and I have good careers and have our proper education in which both of us graduated with a bachelors degree on the courses we chose. But even back in high-school, we have subjects concerning on health.

    Being educated, both my wife and I know how to properly plan a family. We both attended seminars from both government and our local church prior to getting married. 

    As with mentioning careers and education, what we earn is enough to sustain a decent lifestyle and provide the best for our children, both health, education, etc.

    But to do that, we worked hard for it and both work and being a parent isn’t a joke. You have to sacrifice many things and spend full-time to your family. That mean going home after work and not spending your time in the bar on in club hanging out with friends and enjoying yourself.

    What more to those less fortunate than us especially those who have 2 or more kids? How are they going to support their children or even give them the best in life? Honestly I feel sorry to the parents who allow their children to beg in the streets when instead should be in school or at home doing their homework. 

    What more if some these less fortunate would experience what my wife has been through during her second pregnancy, how will they afford such?

    And who will teach our less fortunate what is proper and what is not?

    Those in the church especially our priests and nuns will NEVER experience what me or my wife have gone through, the hardships of pregnancy, being a parent, the feeling of life and keeping a strong relationship. The only way these people will experience such thing is to leave their parish. But nevertheless when we stood up at the altar and expressed our vows, we are committed to do it for life.

    That is why for those who are single or are planning to get laid or the girls allowing themselves to get involved in this, better think the consequence cause being a parent isn’t a joke.

    And best, prevent it if we can that is why an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

      • flip1sba

        Best to PREVENT IT. The best thing that The RH can do is prevent such by EDUCATING our less fortunate on such. And this is the first step before even thinking of contraceptives, etc. Now it is up to the couple to decide and think what is right.

    Priest who had sex with boys now tells how to smuggle ivory

    National Geographic‘s new issue exposes the ivory business, which has been hiding in plain sight since a worldwide trade ban was enacted in 1989. And a major player in the magazine’s story is a priest in the Philippines whom I wrote about in 2005 when investigating another global-trafficking phenomenon — the Catholic Church’s movement of sexual abuse suspects across international borders to escape justice.

    The priest, Monsignor Cristobal Garcia, is now quoted as explaining how to smuggle ivory into the United States: “Wrap it in old, stinky underwear and pour ketchup on it.” And if an icon won’t fit in a suitcase? Here’s how National Geographic‘s Bryan Christy summarizes Garcia’s advice: “I might get a certificate from the National Museum of the Philippines declaring my image to be antique, or I could get a carver to issue a paper declaring it to be imitation or alter the carving date to before the ivory ban.”

    Garcia also made provocative comments when I interviewed him about why he fled the U.S. in 1985. He admitted having sex with altar boys and supplying them with drugs

    The RH bill has been passed. It is so many things aside from what it literally stands for in it’s contents.

    Time will come when there will no longer be any crowded class rooms and the students both in public and private institutions will be at the same tier at how classes will be distributed. Hopefully, I won’t be seeing those kids in the middle of the Cubao underpass, snorting rugby anymore.

    There’s so much good things in store when the next generations lives are planned more carefully so that all raw materials needed can be distributed closer to what we know as equitable.

    Age of reason. Freedom from dogmatic coercion. Liberty to see all the possibilities available to us to grow as individuals and as a people.

    The full fruition of the bill won’t be seen immediately. It may not be seen by even some who fathered it. But this is the Glory of humanity; when you do things that do not benefit you yet you know will benefit the greater good of the future and all those who may be in it.My country is growing!

    Most expensive schools, hospitals and dormitories managed by the
    Catholic Church cannot even admit a poor Jesus Christ, the son of a
    carpenter to a good education. It is He who taught Godly scriptures,
    gospels and virtues to these Pharisees at the synagogues. Even Mary who
    gave birth to the Son who will sacrifice himself and save the world from
    sins and wickedness will have to contend to a humble dwelling place, to
    a manger where animals are kept in the city of Bethlehem and cannot be
    admitted to a comfortable lodging because she and Joseph will be asked
    for a downpayment. How on earth that the priests of this nation, the
    Philippines, a Catholic country, doesn’t or don’t understand the love of
    God through the intercession of Mary, through the intercession of the
    Holy Spirit? Go forth and multiply doesn’t justify to over-populate the
    world with poor, slaves, and beggars or to point it out strongly… the
    P.D.O.M.E.S. (Poor, Deprived, Oppressed, Marginalized, Exploited, and
    Sufferings). Where are their consciences? they want real conscience?
    Hypocrisy! Let’s pray that Padre Damaso will not be reincarnated from the dead. We

    Even Christ was crucified in standing for the truth and He seems a loser at first. But mind you losing can not happen in God. He will always emerged victorious and glorious.  For us who are saddened by the victory of this Evil camouflaged as RH Bill, in this last moral frontier of the World, called Philippines, we will continue to work and pray for moral revolution. While the so called first world countries are learning from their mistakes, ironically we are following their mistakes. Not long there will be bills on same sex marriages and other unimaginable laws reflective of Godless minds projecting to be civilized, educated, intelligent proponents.

    When Jesus said to Simon (Peter the first Pope), “You are rock and upon this rock I will build my Church…The gates of Hell can not overcome it…Whatever statutes you bind on earth will be also bound in Heaven … What sins you forgive will be forgiven in Heaven’. Bretheren, that is the  Authority of the Church!!! Unless you are heretics, you can’t afford to disrespect the Lord.

    If this country is a true and obedient sheepfold of the Good Shepherd, Jesus, we must be able to know His voice and follow His Authority, the Church.    “Lord forgive us on this grave mistake our country has done today. Our leaders have resisted your Holy Will.  Don’t count this against our children who are innocent of this act, instead give them the strength and fortitude to correct what we may have failed to do in our time. To God be the Glory Forever!”

      Was Jesus crucified for the reason that He was fighting for the truth? And what truth was he fighting for?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PJTH3SHQU3B4TCUVRH2UXZCJDY Balahura

        Then you should seek the truth, since everyone who seeks finds the truth, if you don’t believe the sayings of Christ,  then your father is satan the originator of falsehood. Read the Bible especially the sermon on the mount to enlighten you about the truth, Adam and Eve did not stay in the truth, only Abel. Jesus was nailed on the post as a perfect man without sin to save the world from Adam’s sin. Adam sinned though he is perfect, he exercised his free moral agent but with consequences as if jumping from 10th floor of the building to the ground to defy gravity. (Gravity is the Law, in the same manner anyone should abide the Law of God and of the Human Government)

      • joshmale2004

        Yes I know. Jesus was spotless. What I was asking her is that she said Jesus was crucified because He was fighting for the truth. He was not fighting for the truth but he was propagating the truth and because of this, he was crucified. But this is secondary because His crucifixion was a well laid out plan by God the Father to redeem mankind from its sins. Even in the old testament God has been telling to Moises that His Son will come and will be redeemer. I believe all Jesus said and I am not propagating lies. Read carefully my reply and you will see what I meant.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PJTH3SHQU3B4TCUVRH2UXZCJDY Balahura

        What is the difference bet. fighting and propagating the truth? Fighting though not physically involves your deep conviction about fighting it out what you believe in, in the same manner propagating is spreading or informing the word. With regards to prophesy, God is only revealing the things in the future to show that God can foresee the future, that’s God’s power, we can say then that all the sayings or prophesy that is from the bible will come true 100%

      • joshmale2004

        fighting and propagating? I won’t go into a debate with you my brother. I suggest you read John 10:18, and John 3:16. Let the bible answer your question. With regards to prophecies, I agree with you 100% that they will all come true.

        You dear sir or ma’am are a religious fanatic, and deserve to have lived in the Age of the Inquisition rather than the 21st Century. You would have had a hell of a time (pardon the pun) torturing and burning heretics whose only crime is to put reason over dogma, and science over superstition. My only consolation is your tribe is slowly dying out as the light of reason illuminates the darkness that people like you have imposed on the rest of humanity for centuries.

        • Although both Roman and Jewish leaders could be implicated in the sentencing and death ofJesus Christ, he himself said of his life, “No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.” (John 10:18 NIV).
        • The curtain or veil of the Temple separated the Holy of Holies (where the presence of God dwelled) from the rest of the Temple. Only the high priest could enter there once a year, with the sacrificial offering for the sins of all the people. When Christ died and the curtain was torn from top to bottom, this symbolized the destruction of the barrier between God and man. The way was opened up through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. His death provided the complete sacrifice for sin so that now all people, through Christ, can approach the throne of grace.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PJTH3SHQU3B4TCUVRH2UXZCJDY Balahura

        the greek word for cross is stauros meaning a post or a straight pole, that is the hands are spread vertically above the head and not horizontally to form a cross just to emphasize the trinity doctrine dogma which is not a bible teaching, a teaching of satan indeed!

    • joshmale2004

      Some Christian denominations, such as the Catholic Church, interpret this verse to mean that Peter is the rock upon which the church was founded, and for this reason, Peter is considered the first Pope. However, Protestants as well as other Christian denominations understand this verse differently. Though many believe Jesus noted the meaning of Peter’s name here as rock, there was no supremacy given to him by Christ. Rather, Jesus was referring to Peter’s declaration: “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” This confession of faith is the rock upon which the church is built, and just like Peter, everyone who confesses Jesus Christ as Lord is a part of the church.
      New Testament Definition of the Church
      The word “church” as rendered in the New Testament comes from the Greek term ekklesiawhich is formed from two Greek words meaning “an assembly” and “to call out” or “called out ones.” In summary, the New Testament church is a body of believers who have been called out from the world by God to live as his people under the authority of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23). This group of believers or “the body of Christ” began in Acts 2 on the Day of Pentecost through the work of the Holy Spirit and will continue to be formed until the day of the rapture of the church.The local church is defined as a local assembly of believers or a congregation that meets together physically for worship, fellowship, teaching, prayer and encouragement in the faith (Hebrews 10:25). At the local church level, we are able to live in relationship with other believers—we break bread together (Communion), pray for each other, disciple, and strengthen one another. At the same time, all believers are members of the universal church. The universal church is made up of every single person who has exercised faith in Jesus Christ forsalvation, including members of every local church body throughout the earth (1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:22-23).So, Who is the Church?
      The founder of the “home church” movement in England, Canon Ernest Southcott, said it best:”The holiest moment of the church service is the moment when God’s people—strengthened by preaching and sacrament—go out of the church door into the world to be the church. We don’t go to church; we are the church.”
      The church, therefore, is not a place. It’s not the building, it’s not the location, and it’s not the denomination. We—God’s people who are in Christ Jesus—are the church.The purpose of the church is two-fold. The church comes together (or assembles) for the purpose of bringing each member to spiritual maturity (Ephesians 4:13). The church reaches out (scatters) to spread the love of Christ and the gospel message to unbelievers in the world (Matthew 28:18-20). This is the Great Commission. So, the purpose of the church is to minister to believers and unbelievers.
      The church, both in the universal and local sense, is important because it is one of the main vehicles through which God carries out his purposes on earth. The church is the body of Christ—his heart, his mouth, his hands and feet—reaching out to the world.
      1 Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

      Why oppose a divorce law? We are one of only two countries in the world (excluding the Vatican) without a divorce law…how backward can we possibly be? It’s about time you respect other religions and beliefs and not impose yours on others. There is a clear cut separation between Church and State and you should respect that.

    • catmanjohn

      Your wild imagination is taking you into rampant hysteria. The PH already has TV and radio shows with transgenders and gays that discuss their most bizarre issues, at least in Manila they do. On the more crucial issue of divorce, they call ‘annulment’, which is another hypocrisy of the church, because as long as you can afford one, it doesn’t matter if there was sex or not, which cases such a term should only be applied to.

    LONG LIVE RH BILL. Time for the bishops to go back to church and stop all of their nonsense.

  • pcosmachine

    For a very long time, the Philippine Roman Catholic Church has ruled the country with its strong influence on Philippine politics. From President Quezon to President Arroyo, they had dictated our lawmakers to pass state laws that would favor and benefit them. President Aquino is the only Philippine president in our country’s history who stood up against these controlling bishops.

    It is now time to expose how much is the Philippine Roman Catholic Church really worth considering all the cash and property donations that they have acquired being exempted from taxes and continuing to grow through investments. Their net worth is in the trillions making the Ayalas and Sys look like paupers.

    Congratulations to the Congressmen and Senators who voted not only on the passing of the RH bill, but on freeing the Filipinos from the slavery of the Catholic Church.

    I am not a bishop. I’m a husband with 3 kids. My daughter is 12 yrs old. My sons are 8 and 4 years old.  Now I see how you can easily make fun of Truth.  Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Every time you reject truth, you reject Jesus and no way you are going to the Father. Instead you are going the broad way to hell.  Scripture says, “Broad and easy is the way to hell while difficult and rough is towards Heaven. So few will be able to make it.”

    I hope you take a stop from the noisy influence of world in your life.
    And listen to the constant still voice of God in your heart.
    Bretheren, God will do everything to save us.
    But not without our cooperation.

    I still forgive you on being judgemental on my person.
    Unless you change and become pleasing to God, 
    curse, which God has commanded to be a natural law, 
    will be upon you.

      in Genesis 1:28  it says: be fruitful and become many and subdue it. What if they become many? The bible says subdue it, here’ s the merriam dictionary for the meaning of subdue:

      1 : to conquer and bring into subjection : vanquish
      2 : to bring under control especially by an exertion of the will 
      3: to bring (land) under cultivation
      4: to reduce the intensity or degree of,  tone down,

      Bring under control, Reduce the intensity , Tone Down !!!

      Conclusion: Over populating by means of CBCP and priests is a violation of God’s Law as the Genesis account says

      I dare you to find anywhere in the Scriptures that speaks out against the use of contraception!  I dare you to find passages that Jesus says people should not use contraception!

      JOHN 14:1-6   “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.  In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.  And where I go you know, and the way you know.”  

      Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”

       Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

    If the RH Bill is going to introduce in “Kalayaan Island” with a population of only 200,then AGAINST ako.But if the Kalayaan Island has a population of 2Million then i´m not against the RH Bill! The logic is simple! The proportion of their sources to survive is rather questionable and can´t assure the future of each family.So,paanong gagawin? I have only one question:
    Saan magagalit ang Diyos?

    1) Sa isang tao na gawa ng gawa ng anak at pagdating sa huli eh “Bahala na?”
    2) Or sa isang tao na pumayag lang na magkaroon ng RH Bill with the purpose of educating individuals,the meaning and awareness on how to survive decently?
     40yrs ago,our population was 40million …Now,it´s year 2012,we are almost 95million Filipinos…Now,let me add another 40yrs from now,or sabihin na natin na 20yrs na lang! By the year 2030-35,we will reach the population of 120Million (more or less).Let me say,our present President loan for 500Million Dollars to recover our economy with 95Million Filipinos (2012)
    TANONG:
    Kung ikaw ang magiging Presidente by the year 2030,MAGKANO ANG UUTANGIN MO PARA ISALBA ANG KINABUKASAN NG PILIPINAS?
    1) Now,ang pamasahe is 10Php(more or less),magkano ang magiging pamasahe by the year 2030?….20Php?..30Php?
    2) Kung ang anak mo eh 10?…Magkano ang ipamamasahe mo para makarating sa iskul nila?(back and forth)?
    3)Magkano ang magiging Tuition ng mga bata sa Paaralan?
    4) Magkano ang pagpapagamot sa Hospital?
    5) Magkano ang presyo ng pagkain?
    Let us all accept that poverty was the main reason! Let us accept na tumataas ang bilang ng mga walang trabaho! And the reasons are:

    a) Walang trabaho
    b) Namimili ng Trabaho
    c) Ayaw magtrabaho
    Ngayon,kung ganito pa din tayo in the next 40yrs from  now,eh malamang lulubog ang bansa natin!…..Hindi nangangahulugan na may RH Bill eh bawal ng mag-anak???…But masama ba yung maging responsable ang bawat isa at hindi lumaking mangmang?…Tao pa din ang masusunod kung ayaw mo sa RH Bill…Pero kung ayaw mo eh IKAW PA DIN ANG TALO dahil hindi ka makakasigurado kung mabubuhay mo ang pamilya mo sa binigay kong mga halimbawa.Just my 2 cents of opinion!

    i hope whatever the consequences will be, there will be no POINTING FINGERS among the people. God be with us T.T

    There will be people who will disagree, protest and oppose The Roman Catholic Church. Even in history with people like Martin Luther. 

    That is why these people became PROTESTants. Now, there are different non Catholic Christian groups and organizations around The Philippines and throughout the world.

      What is your point?

    Congratulations Pilipinas, thank you, senators and congressmen who voted for the RH Bill.

    Nakakatuwang kahit papaano eh nagkaroon ng political maturity sa isang bansang kagaya ng Pilipinas. Sa wakas nagkaroon na ng saysay ang separation of church and state. Wala ng talab ang impluwensiya ng mga Damaso ngayon. 

    Isunod na alisin ang mga trapo sa sistema. Mahirap, pero kagaya nito, POSIBLE PA RIN.

      ito na pala political maturity ngayon hahahaha what a drag. 

    • srvnts

      It’s moral immaturity instead!
      Age and political position are  not gauges for moral maturity.
      After all the Lord said, “what makes a man dirty is not what comes in, but 
      what comes out from his mouth.” What comes out from the minds and mouths of all this Pro-RH people are clearly moral garbage.  Shallow mindedness that can only see the glitters of so called economic progress but failing to see the moral degradation following 
      their decisions. A trap in which the west and rest of the affluent world is now in great dilemma. The young they are bringing up will no longer have the moral strength.  Soon they will no longer be affluent nor strong.  We are following suit. A wiser Philippines should have not compromised with laws that ignites immorality.

    naipasa na sa wakas… kung ito ang gusto ng nakararami then so be it.. pero wag naman nating ipako sa krus yung mga nag-no kasi for sure ang isinasaalang alang din nila ay ang kapakanan ng mga pilipino..baka lang merong mga probisyon sa rh bill na kakontra kontra kaya ganun…

  • disqusted0fu

    senators and congressmen will continue to get their pork, and the administration got what they wanted in passing the bill, everybody happy? not! its just them. this bill is just a band aid solution to the economic problems of the nation after all. its over rated!

  • Aleksander Boleslaw

    The Catholic Church can only state its opposition but no matter how strong they seem to be, they can only influence as much. The decision still remains with the policymakers.

  • David Fabian

    sana hindi nakasama dito sa rh bill ang paglelegalize ng abortion!

  • welmar

    RH bill maaring makalunas sa kahirapan?huh! its true? for me RH bill ay di magandang maidudulot sa katawan ng tao. Di ba natin naisip inalis na natin ang karapatang pangtao.. ang bata gustong mabuhay sa sinapupunan ng ina, pinipigalan ng RH bill na yan.. wala tayong karapatang pumigil sa nilikha ng diyos. at kung sa isip nyo ang kahirapan, hind kasalanan ng bata iyon, kung naging mabuting mamayan lang tayo walang nangyaring corruption sa bansa natin, di sana maaprobahan ang RH bill na yan. bakit ba, ang RH bill ang binigyan ng focus sa bansa natin, dapat ang tuonan ng pansin pano mapigilan ang corruption at ang nangyari sa compostella valley at saan pa man naging apektado ang pablo. binubuhay tayo dito sa mundo binibigay na ng Diyos saa atin ang lahat ng mga pangangailangan natin, ,pero tayong mga tao naging masama lang tayo, masyado tayong nag aabuso.

    I am against the passage RH bill primarily because they I dont want my kid to be exposed to sex education as early as grade 5. Pwede naman kasing 3rd or 4th year high school, bakit kelangan grade 5! 

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

      if that’s your only objection, then you’d be happy to know that age appropriate reproductive health classes in school will require parental consent.

      tapos ang problema

    • indiosbravos2002

      Para ka naman di dumaan ng elementary. Grade 5 or grd 6 students are already exposeed to informal sex educatiin through classmats or peers. I remember when I was in elementary in an all boys school my classmate would slip in a betamax tape of some older brother’s p@rn@ stash pag gawaan ng project. I wasnt interested then pero may peer pressure na manood, otherwise, sasabihin bakla ka. It better kung galing sa profesional or person of authority yong information kasi mas factual. Mas delikado yong nangyayari ngayon, IMHO. Its like the blind leading the blind.

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

        correct.

        the old world thinking is that by denying kids information about their own reproductive health then parents are protecting them.

        this is wrong

        what they’re actually doing is letting kids learn about sex from their peers, from television, and now, from the internet.

        what parents should be doing, is empowering their children with age appropriate information. with facts and knowledge from the experts.

        this is the 21st century, the information age, if you think 5th and 6th graders aren’t learning about sex on their own, then you need a reality check.

        No kid lives in a bubble anymore.

        tsk tsk shame on you using pope as your name 

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

        wala ka lang mai-puntos na argumento, kaya hanggang pangalan na lang kaya mong pansinin.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/W7PRBWHKZ3666OSFA2VUWAEGFM Veiz

        mga anak nila kasi hindi kagaya mo nung bata ka pa. talagang malaking kalokohan tong rh bill. wala namang mangyayari pag napatupad yan

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/MEI2VZOCPGKA62EEHMX3T5MQHI Roxanne

    bilang mamayan ng ating bansa bantayan nating mabuti ang kahihinatnan ng batas na ito.

  • Sophia Castro

    bilang nurse, ang concern ko lang dito ay pag dumating yung pagkakataon na ang isang buntis na babae ay pupunta sa hospital tapos sasabihin nya na gusto nyang magparaspa..nakasaad sa rh bill na pag nangyari ang pagkakataong yun hindi pwedeng tanggihan ng doctor ang naturang hinihinging procedure otherwise mapepenalize yung doctor… 

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

      ay mali yung nabasa mo

    • akramgolteb

      Oo mali nga ang nabasa. Basahin mo uli at intindihin. Baka hindi RH bill nabasa mo, baka Jueteng Bill.

    • indiosbravos2002

      Hahaha. Wag masyadong maniniwala sa sermon noong linggo. Either nagsisinungaling yong pari or nagmamarunong lang at tinamad basahin yong RH bago humarap sa altar.

    • MelorisV

      Iha, Lilinawin kolang sayo at pakitandaang mabuti. “The Philippines Constitution prohibits abortion and the RH Bill recognizes that abortion is illegal, punishable and not a method of family planning.” In short hindi ito papayagan sa anumang health center o hospital. Iba yan pagkakaintindi mo. Kung gusto mo ipost mo dito yung sec. or article at himay-himayin natin ng malinawan kapa ng husto at yung iba rin na hindi nakaka-intindi.

      Kung ang ibig mo naman sabihin ay ganito, yung buntis nagpa-abort na or nakunan (miscarriage) at nanghihingi ng medical help, yun yung sinasaad na kailangan lapatan ng lunas at hindi pwedeng tanggihan ng health center o hospital at nasa doktor na yun kung rasraspahin o hinde (palagay ko alam mo naman kung baket). Malinaw na? 

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/W7PRBWHKZ3666OSFA2VUWAEGFM Veiz

        kahit anong pang sabihin mo RH bill is another way to earn money
