Aquino in no hurry to sign RH bill

By |


MANILA, Philippines—President Benigno Aquino III, who had a falling out with the leadership of the influential Catholic Church for pushing for the passage of the reproductive health (RH) bill, seemed to be in no rush to sign the measure, which was finally passed last week by both chambers of Congress.

In a radio interview, deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said her boss has yet to sign the RH bill, whose bicameral version was ratified by the Senate and House of Representatives before adjourning for their traditional Christmas break last Thursday.

She assured the public, however, that the consolidated version of House Bill No. 4244 and Senate Bill No. 2865 would be definitely signed by the President “before the end of the year.”

 

Few more days won’t hurt

Valte said a few more days would not hurt RH advocates, considering that the measure had already hurdled 13 years of legislative debates.

“The long (awaited), the very hotly contested and acrimonious, the long been discussed—perhaps, for 10 million years—Responsible Parenthood Bill was passed under the leadership of President Aquino. He will sign it before the end of the year,” Valte said.

With the long weekend, the President won’t be back in Malacañang until the next working day (Dec. 26), a Wednesday. Monday and Tuesday have been declared as a nonworking day and regular holiday, respectively.

Valte said she has yet to receive advice from the Office of the President when Mr. Aquino is due to sign it.

Certified as urgent

The measure affords everyone universal access to modern family planning methods, giving a woman the choice to determine the number of her children, meeting a teenager’s need to be protected from an unplanned pregnancy and educating citizens about sexual health.

On Dec. 14, the day after the House passed HB 4244 on second reading, President Aquino certified the measure as urgent, ensuring the enactment of the controversial measure that had pitted the Aquino administration against many of the fiercely conservative leaders of the Catholic Church.

The presidential imprimatur cut short the process in the plenary, emboldening three women senators—Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Pia Cayetano and Loren Legarda—to press for the passage of SB 2865. The chamber eventually passed the measure, 13-8, late Monday.

No force more powerful

“There is no force more powerful than an idea whose time has come and that idea today is the RH bill,” Santiago said.

In certifying the measure, Mr. Aquino said it was time for Congress to decide on the bill based on a “conscience” vote.

In an interview with reporters in Malacañang last week, the President said he wants the divisive issue settled before the start of the new year.

The President had expected that the certification would ensure the passage of the measure in both chambers of Congress since it removed the three-day rule—or waiting period—between the second and third readings of the pending bill.

The President said that anti-RH groups had not put forward a viable solution to the runaway population growth, save for a blanket denial of the bill’s benefits.

“At the end of the day, what I heard from RH bill opponents is that they don’t suggest that if you have a problem, here’s the solution. They always say, ‘you can’t do that, you can’t do this, you can’t do everything,’” said Mr. Aquino.

 

‘There’s really a way’

“So if you have a problem there must be a solution, and I think the RH bill presents, especially this massively amended form, that there’s really a way to address a situation like this. Can anybody here imagine that this 18-year-old lady (in a slum area in Baseco compound, Tondo, Manila,) will be able to improve the lot of her three offspring?

“Is she capable of raising them and giving them opportunities? If we do nothing, the three (children), in their turn, will repeat the same mistakes, will be in a worse situation, will produce more children who will face a much harsher situation. That’s why I really feel that we have to address the problem, and not pretend we’re ostriches,” he said.

The President also shared his belief that “genuine leaders” could not put off a decision on a “divisive issue.”

“The issue has been divisive for too long; the time has come to put the matter to rest,” the President said.

        Spitfire is just too juvenile and petty to understand that. Besides, 10 million years ago is too early, as dinosaurs came much, much earlier, about 650 million years back.

    He didn’t really mean that way literally.

    I hope Pres. Aquino signs the RH bill into law on December 30, Rizal’s execution day in Bagumbayan.  For a bill with such historical significance, it is fitting he sign it on a day when our national hero had to give up his life for his country.

    Im aware of the arguments of the anti-RH that Rizal would have been anti-RH, but Im referring to the struggles of patriots against tyrants in the Spanish government and the Church hierarchy.

    It’s also for Emilio Jacinto, the Gomburza priests, Andres Bonifacio, etc who suffered under the Spanish regime and the Catholic church hierarchy at the time.

    • mad_as_Hamlet

      Yes!  100 percent agree.  And with a quill pen, too.  But if I may suggest to our good President, it would be more fitting and symbolic to just affix his right thumb mark on the bill.  The law considers it as equivalent to a person’s signature, especially if one is illiterate.  But the reverse symbolism is there.  It was the Church that, for centuries, kept the Filipino masses ignorant and illiterate; to keep their minds from advancing; to fill it with nothing much, except religious dogma.

    • Jane Tan

      That is a good idea!

    • quirinomayer

      “Im aware of the arguments of the anti-RH that Rizal would have been anti-RH, but Im referring to the struggles of patriots against tyrants in the Spanish government and the Church hierarchy.”

      How dare the anti-RH to say that Rizal would have been anti-RH. Rizal fighting on the side of Padre Damaso to suppress the freedom of Filipinos to choose the size of their families and the kind of life their families would live? Impossible!

      Second, Rizal said that “The youth are the hope of the fatherland.” Rizal’s idea of hopes of the fatherland are eight malnourished kids born and living in a barong-barong with no hope to see the inside of a classroom? Preposterous!

      Kung sabagay, the anti-RH even presume to own and speak for God so how much more they would not use Rizal!

      By the way, in the case of Rizal, all these anti-RH are sickeningly balimbing. Had they been alive during the fight over the Rizal Bill in the 50s, they would all have been on the side of Padre Damaso wanting to continue the ban on the works of Rizal from Catholic schools!

      Woe to these hypocrites and traitors!

    “There is no force more powerful than an idea whose time has come and that idea today is the RH bill…” But there is that idea which is constantly superior from the MOST POWERFUL … the source of force. Her idea is definitely NOT. 

    • superpilipinas

      that idea today is RH, the next “idea whose time has come” will be:

      legalization of Divorce, Same-sex marriage, Marijuana, Assisted-suicide, Incest.

      it’s exactly what transpired in some states in the US and some countries in Europe.

    5. Incest

    If this generation was able to cross the line, there’s no turning back and the next generation will push for more of this so called “progress”. This will be the “straw that breaks the camel’s back”.

     Yes, no harm in delaying the signing.  After all, Mr. President, you
    have “proven” once more that you are a “power” to contend with.  You
    have
    “proven” once more that no one can ever put one over you.  You have
    “proven” again that even the powerful Catholic Church has been “humbled”

    by your earthly power, your “popularity”, your “wisdom”. Bask then in
    the “glory” that you think you now enjoy.  and I, I will continue to pray for you,
    Mr. President because I and countless others know you really, really need it, for after all, at the final reckoning, it is eternity that really matters – not this earthly glory, not this seeming “win”, not this feeling of another “conquest”.

        Philippines is an AGRICULTURAL country, the more people the more progress, people is the strongest assets if properly oriented. NO TO RH BILL! Develop the countryside, organized strong agriculture to sustain growth, plant more crops, use the taxes to improve the countryside, use the money to improve agriculture for more people to plant crops means more food, more food less hungry, plant more harvest more. More trees no flood, less effect of calamities. Don’t waste money on waste matters & useless things!!!

        I beg to disagree…you are limiting your world? What I mean if I was the president instead of concentrating this useless ‘RH Bill’ and spend billions of pesos of ‘condoms and pills’ why not instead develop, expand, build up and cultivate the countryside send these poor people to the provinces develop idle, unproductive government lands into productive farm lands, aquaculture lands for  poultry  and acquatic fishes/ resources, make these people busy, employed, secured for the government at the provincial areas to create jobs, teach them to plant trees, crops, produce livelihood thru projects for local or exports. The money could be put to better use. ‘No street children, no beggars or orphans’ on the  concrete jungle called metro-manila for they shall be deployed in farms, developed lots, lots of lots of vacant lots in the countryside. Provide them homes. That way solve many problems like, squaters/ traffic congestions/crimes/insurgencies by NPAs/health/food and many more. To start with use the Military to assist them by bringing equipment, tools, build houses, water supply, access roads  in these remote areas that will be developed for Philippine for progress, the land is fertile & abundant!!!

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OHOD5EA75DBBUH53UKLRXRK764 Mang Teban

        Please allow me to set straight the words of Jesus that you quoted. It should be like this – “What does it profit a man to gain the world but lose his soul?”

        Another thing is this – the kingdom of God has already come. It has arrived since the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. It has been announced even by prophets that a Redeemer shall be born. When Jesus read the scroll of Isaiah at a synagogue about blind being able to see, lame being able to walk, prisoners being set free, etc,, the kingdom of God has come with the words of assurance from Jesus saying that the prophecy of Isaiah has been fulfilled at that moment.

        What you are probably referring to is what is called the Second Coming or the Last Judgment. By then, people shall know that GOD TAKES SIDES. He has always been. God is on the side of goodness. God shall separate the unrepentant sinners from the repentant sinners. All of us are sinners. We are asked to strive hard to remain holy and pure. It is easy to do if we follow God. It is not easy if we refuse to see the Divinity of Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of His Body and Blood that washes away sins.

        Christianity is not a religion but a categorization of those who believe in Christ Jesus. 
        Catholicism is the religion established by Christ Jesus by establishing HIS CHURCH upon his first community of disciples appointing Peter as the first human leader.
        The teachings of Jesus are taught to the members of the Catholic Church from age to age, from generation to generation, from all directions of the globe.
        Thank you for bringing this up to make ApoNiLolo able to understand..but, it seems, he tries to hear and hear but never listens; he tries to look and look but never sees.
        The effectiveness though of the Church comes on naturally and distinctly driven by the Spirit of God..thus it shall never be defeated or brought down to oblivion. Instead, the faith of a Catholic as small as the mustard seed grows in stages. God never fails and never abandons those who obey His Word.

      • Jane Tan

        He must be a fan of the exorcist movies. Note to Mang Teban, as much as I believe and follow the Word of God, I don’t think quoting from the Bible can send an invisible fist to your enemy’s face.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OHOD5EA75DBBUH53UKLRXRK764 Mang Teban

        Your “invisible fist” metaphor is a self-inflicted wound.
        What you sow is what you reap.
        Yes, even the Devil quotes the scriptures as in the temptation of Jesus at the desert for 40 days.
        But, Jesus himself assured his disciples not to be afraid of what to say for His Spirit shall lead them and whatever word they shall speak cannot be defeated for those words from God shall be as formidable as the house built on solid rock. If you believe and follow the Word of God, as you said, then do what must be done this time and not stay on as a spectator or a fence sitter. Act now for Jesus, if you mean it.

        You are really obtuse..if you don’t like the word “dumb”.
        Another Satanist in the works..Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us.
        Satan is afraid of Jesus, the Word of God.
        Evil has no friends..only more enemies.
        The Devil wants human beings to fight each other and kill each other like the RH bill that serves to propel the Culture of Death as John Paul II forewarned. Contraception leads to the breakdown of morality to the breakup of marriages to the devastating effect on the family as the basic unit of society and model of holiness for God. Without the family being one, Satan’s mission to destroy creation becomes easier. YOU make his job a lot easier with your obtuse sympathy to the Enemy of God.

        ka-awa-awa naman kayong pumapaling sa kasamaan.
        Dahil di ka naman naniniwala sa Diyos, ano pa ang ikabubuti ng mga sinabi mo?
        Isa ka rin ba na bulag na umiidolo kay Miriam Santiago?
        Pinagpalit mo na ang Salita ng Diyos sa taong mahilig magpa-epal..bahala ka.
        RH bill more powerful force? Yeah, evil force.

      nothing in the bible specifically talks about artificial contraception. that teaching is an interpretation of the Church, a human institution. don’t claim something to be God’s words if they really aren’t. Teachings released by the Church are results of meetings and decisions by cardinals and bishops. And these are not infallible and are subject to change.

    Ang bilis niyang pinirmahan yung palpak na Cyber crime law tapos ito pinaghihintay niya ang lahat? Baka naman kasi nakikipag-negotiate siya sa simbahan?

    • ApoNiLolo

      If he does not sign the bill and instead pass it back to the house for “revision”, then, that’s the time to speculate a negotiation was hatched between him and the church.

      Maybe his taking his time reading the provisions, at baka merong “salisi gang” na naman. Para hindi na mabatikos katulad sa nangyari sa Cyber Crime law. >: D

    hurry, tarry. 
    the world agenda is to make the abnormal the new normal; 
    1) dangerous drugs; 
    2) same-sex marriage; 
    3) man-beast union; 
    4) prostitution; 
    5) pedophilia; 
    6) abortion; 

    the agenda is being pushed around the world; 
    some countries have already legalized one or more of the agenda items; 
    the push is intensifying; targeting world leaders and people of influence; 
    uk, france, netherlands, spain, sweden, southafrica, argentina and canada have fallen; 
    obama, clinton and carter have fallen; the whole usa may fall soon; 
    noykapon has fallen; so do many ph politicians and academics; ph on the verge of falling; 

    everything will be redefined; 
    $sodomy becomes love; bestialisex is affection; a toilet bowl becomes a sex object; 
    a junkie is chic; a prostitute is enterprising; 
    adopting the agenda is equated to progress, prosperity and advancement; 

    the idea is to make the world one big orgy; all people thinking, behaving and acting alike; 
    one world order; the reign of the great pervert; 
    there will be no more right nor wrong; there is only normal perversion; 

    time to choose which side you are on; fence-sitting not recommended. 

    No to perversion! 
    No to rhbill.

       ”No to perversion! ”

      Tell that to some priests then.

      Do you live on this Earth? No country is attempting to legalize man-beast unions and pedophilia ANYWHERE. And if you think cannabis is a “dangerous drug,” you are in desperate need of a toke!

    Ms Valte, I hope you don’t mind. Our civil service code is very strict against immorality. You and your husband have not completed the annulment of your marriage yet. Pero you and Edwin Lacierda have been seen in public in intimate terms several times. Just to give you an idea, power plant mall early december. Ingat lang po kayo.

    The President is simply playing it safe.  He could be looking out the skies,  or over his shoulders,  just to be sure the Mayans were really wrong.   Giving them the benefit of a doubt.  What’s another day or two?  Or, a full week even?  There is no urgency now.   He could sign the bill at his convenience,  just as long as it is within the year.   The Anti RH Bill people could see it as a “period of reflection”,  and he really deserves it.

    But if something happens within the week (like Doomsday, for example),  then history will not say we got what was coming cuz PNoy signed the darned thing.

    • Jane Tan

      Sobra ka naman. Doomsday happened to the entire planet because 1 country signed an RH Bill. Lols.

         Doomsday happens when Coca Cola company becomes bankrupt.

    With a propensity for grand entrance, our president is up to something again.
    He will sign the s t u p i d bill because he is now assured that there are enough funds to pay for the purchases of condoms and other contraceptive contraptions, courtesy of the “sin tax” law.
    He does not give a hoot to the moral aspect of the devilish bill pretending to redeem the “irresponsible parents from the slums” from hunger and poverty.
    He is pressing his luck that majority of Congress loves him and what paid surveys make him believe that majority of the Filipino people is in favor of the Satanic legislation.
    Of 25 representatives who changed their minds in a matter of days from anti to pro and the additional four abstentions and 61 absenting representatives, I am amazed at the speed of backroom deals was able to muster the required votes to overturn what was supposed to be a close call to end the onslaught of immorality in our country.
    But, P-Noy commands so much “respect” (with the lure of pork barrel money) and make the greedy representatives kowtow to every whim of the bachelor president.
    Despite this, the fight ain’t over yet.
    Every Filipino should not play deaf and dumb now. Stand up for Jesus. Stand up for what is morally right. Stand up for the future of our country.

    See how stupendous he thinks!

    Sana i veto mo Mr. President. It’s not yet too late. No to RH Bill!!!

  • Stephen Christian Sy

    Im neutral when it comes to RH bill. Kung mas konti mga poor people-> Mas kokonti ang supply sa labor-> They can demand higher salary especially the domestic helpers, factory workers, etc.

    • Stephen Christian Sy

      pero mga contraceptives may side effects.. it can cause hormonal imbalance that is cancerous(birth control pill).. minsan abnormal pa ang anak. about sex education.. not so  bad just as long as they also teach children to avoid sex.. that it is bad when you are not yet married.

    The Baseco slum argument is the most stupid example I have ever heard. Imagine coming from  the President?  The govt is helpless and bankrupt in solutions to help the poor people in the slums? Except to give them free condoms? What about housing relocation? Job opportunities?  Education? The solution to their situation is CONDOMS !!! My Santa, give me more condoms this Christmas !!!

  • bundee

    Noynoy, ang henyo, is criticizing the Anti-RH that they have no solution to population growth but he focuses on another problem which is poverty. Genius talaga. Tapos ang solusyon ay condoms? Genius na tunay. Tapos sabi wala daw sila solusyon.  Sya mayron:  FREE CONDOMS !!!   Hohohohohohohohoho . . .  Brilliant solution !

  • bundee

    Kaya pala tayo di umuunlad.  Ganyan pala ka kitid ang pag iisip?  Hanggang ngayon Baseco lang ang basehan at condom lang ang solusyon?  Oh my orgazzzzzms !

    RH Law will never succeed as it was done in haste using pea brains & free condoms to address sensitive problems.  No brains – no gains!

    • Guest

      You clearly only heard about the RH Bill in the recent debates. In fact, it had been in discussion for more than 13 years. That’s hardly “haste.”

  • disqusted0fu

    well, thats president Aquino for you! break first before anything else. now that the ball is on his court, expect some delays. nonetheless, with the apparent lack of concern of the president for the welfare of others except for his own and his loved ones, he will sign the bill for sure as Valte said. its been a cliche now, but again, RH bill is just a band-aid solution to the problems of the nation. it will just cover up the wounds, but it will eventually wear off and we will see the wounds are still not healed.

  • Your_King

    That’s no shock. When is Aquino ever in a hurry to do anything? Every important issue that needs to be resolved or improved since 2010 has either been delayed or ignored or disregarded. The after the only thing Aquino does is make excuses and finds a way to blame and attack fpgma.
