RH, ‘desaparecidos’ bills now laws

President signed without fanfare

By , |


Without fanfare, President Benigno Aquino III signed the reproductive health (RH) bill into law last Dec. 21.

It was signed together with the Anti-Enforced Disappearance Act.

The highly contentious RH law provides “universal access” to reproductive health services and supplies such as contraceptives.

Unimpeachable administration sources confirmed to the Inquirer late Friday an initial report  from House Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales II that the measure had been signed by Mr. Aquino in Malacañang before the four-day long weekend began,  four days after it was passed by both chambers of Congress amid staunch opposition from the Roman Catholic hierarchy and prolife organizations.

The measure is now known as Republic Act No. 10354.

A member of the President’s inner circle, Budget Secretary Florencio Abad, however issued an unequivocal confirmation to the Inquirer.

“I think RH has been signed, but I’m not sure when,” said Abad in a text message at 9:17 p.m. on Friday.

A Senate staff member said by phone that Mr. Aquino said he did not want “fanfare, so that it won’t be a controversy anymore.”

“It should be Malacañang that should announce it, not us,” said the staff member of a senator who voted for the passage of the measure. The staff asked not to be named due to the sensitivity of the matter.

Earlier Friday, deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte had been evasive when asked to confirm or deny speculations, which had been rife since last week, that the bill had been signed.

“We haven’t been advised yet by the Office of Executive Secretary or OES (Paquito) Ochoa. Allow me to explain also what happens (when a bill is up for the President’s signature).

“When the President signs a bill into law, it gets sent to the Office of the Executive Secretary for the RA (Republic Act) number, and for processing,” she said, referring to the process in which a signed copy of the law would be stamped with a barcode and go through “other validation.

The task of announcing the enactment into law of the controversial measure fell on the lap of Valte  during her regular interview with state-run Radyo ng Bayan at noon on Saturday.

Although Mr. Aquino signed the measure before the close of office hours on Dec. 21, it took “some time” before the private office of the President and the Office of the Executive Secretary completed the process, said the administration sources.

 

Not to antagonize Church

“The reason the Palace is announcing it (Saturday) is because it took sometime to process it, and the Palace didn’t want to (antagonize) anti-RH people during the Christmas holiday season,” said one source.

“The bill had to be processed after signing,” said the other source, saying that the process had been completed on Dec. 27, giving Palace officials a day or two to announce it.

The sources confirmed that the Aquino administration was trying to avoid yet another confrontation with the Catholic Church in the run up to Christmas.

“The understanding was to announce it tomorrow, precisely, to avoid this (complication),” said the source.

The source was referring to an agreement to allow the Palace to make the announcement ahead of the House of Representatives. This, however, had not been followed.

Mr. Aquino could not be reached for official comment. He and Cabinet Secretary Rene Almendras are scheduled to return to the Palace on Saturday after a four-day vacation in the summer capital.

House Majority Leader Gonzales  confirmed the signing on Friday night, saying the measure officially became a law “without fanfare.”

The President was credited for providing a belated push to the RH bill, which was facing stiff opposition in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

He certified the bill as urgent soon after it was passed on second reading at the House, allowing the Senate to pass it on second and third readings on the same day.

Cornerstone

The cornerstone of RA 10354 is the State guarantee on “universal access to medically-safe, non-abortifacient, effective, legal, affordable, and quality reproductive health care services, methods devices, supplies.”

But it comes with the condition that they should not “prevent the implantation of the fertilized ovum as determined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).”

It also defines “reproductive health” as the “state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, in all matters relating to the reproductive system and to its functions and process.”

“This implies that people are able to have a responsible, safe, consensual and satisfying sex life, that they have the capability to reproduce and the freedom to decide if, when, and how often to do so,” it adds.

An apparent compromise with anti-RH bill lawmakers is the guarantee that “reproductive health rights do not include abortion, and access to abortifacients.”

RA 10354 defines abortifacients as “any drug or device that induces abortion or the destruction of a fetus inside the mother’s womb, or the prevention of the fertilized ovum to reach and be implanted in the mother’s womb upon determination by the FDA.”

    Good job Sir! Let’s follow it with Divorce law! Philippines is now on the right path…

    • batid

       MERRY CHRISTMAS PRESIDENT AND PEACE SA LAHAT. SANA MAGTULOYTULOY NA ITONG PAGBABAGO SA PAMUMUNO NGATING BANSA. LAW THAT IS REACHABLE BY ALL PILIPINOS. DIVORSE YES NOW NA RIN.

    • littlesoulxv

      yup.  right path to destruction.  after divorce law, same sex marriage. 

  • LabkoPinas

    We are now entering the era of enlightenment and out of the dark ages. We hope and pray that the church will do the same thing which will endear it to the young which will allow it then to be the bastion of our faith.

    • WAJ

      I think what the church going to do next is to convince the women that it will be a sin to take the contraceptives.

    • littlesoulxv

      we are now living the era of chastisement.  loss of faith is worse than nukes.  

    • $39764945

      To say the Church should come out from the Dark Ages and be “Enlightened” to endear herself to the young is not only preposterous, but stupid to say the least. First of all the Catholic Church was founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ while he was here on earth. His teachings and doctrines handed to his Apostles from generation to generations up to now and to the end of times are immutable that can never be changed. It is so because he is the Creator of all things on earth and the whole universe. If some Church Officials erred in some of these doctrines which are obviously manifested today, just remember Clerics are only human beings subject to errors like you and me. That does not mean all Bishops, Priests, etc. are all bad. Going back to the issue, it is the world and the people who must change and conform to Our Lord Who is The Light of The World so those in the dark will come out and see The Light. 

      • LabkoPinas

        When you say that the people have to conform to God and his laws is not an argument here. But what I disagree with is a church that has not kept up with the times and the needs of its constituents and followers and misinterpret the words of God to their advantage. I have never said that all priests and bishops are bad but there is also no argument that some of them have stolen fromn the coffers of the church, been pedophiles and womanizers. I studied with the agustinians, the jesuits, the dominicans and have seen that even some of our parish priest have done the above. I do not condemn them but I pity and pray for them but I will not allow the priests to control how many kids I should have. Mabuhay ang RH bill!

  • innit1

    This will be one of Mr Aquino’s  legacies. Job well done Mr President! Hopefully it will be effectively implemented with education of many poor women who have misonceptions about contraceptions.

    Next: politicians under investigation of crimes/corruption will be banned from entering governement service.

    Whether the bill will be signed on Christmas day, holy week or April Fool’s day, it won’t matter to those who are against it.  It is, however, incumbent upon those tasked by the electorate to do their job regardless who’s spit is the farthest.

    In this regard, the president should not and ‘ought not to give meaningful regard to the sentiment of a disgruntling minority group over the anticipated improvement in life covering a wide range of citizens long been shackled by these churches with their false beliefs.

    Obviously, there’s a huge difference between Pnoy and his late mother Cory in dealing with the Catholic Church.  While his mother obeyed or was dictated by the church particularly the late Cardinal Sin, Pnoy is not afraid to go against the church’s dictates.  If only for this, I salute Pnoy.

      REVERSE THE BRAIN DRAIN (From Bangkok_Post).

      More than eight
      years have passed since Her Majesty the Queen lamented the effects of
      the brain drain caused by the mandatory retirement of civil servants at
      the age of 60. The Civil Service Commission agreed with her suggestions
      and in 2008 a legal amendment to the Civil Service Act was approved to
      allow a select number of senior civil servants in the legal and medical
      fields to continue working until they reached 70.

      Those
      qualifying were mostly judges, and the regular exodus from the civil
      service continued each September as 60-year-old retirees filed out the
      door.

      It is now clear that this change in the law did not go far enough and that the country is wasting productive human resources.

      Specifically, it failed to take into account declining birth rates which will gradually shrink
      the pool of eligible young candidates, the greying population and the
      country’s long-term needs in providing a growing number of public
      services. Nor did it take account the fact that the mandatory retirement
      age of 60 was set in 1941 when the average life expectancy of a Thai
      citizen was 52. Now it is 74 due to better health care, but retirement
      for most government workers and many in the private sector continues to
      be at 60.

      Statisticians also note the average age of the
      nation’s 2.7 million civil servants is 43 with medical expenses alone
      running to 60 billion baht a year, of which roughly half goes to
      dependents over the age of 60. That health care bill can only increase.
      It is all part of a worldwide trend as governments question their
      ability to meet eventual social security obligations given a gradual
      decline in the available workforce.

      Japan is pushing its
      retirement age to 65 in March and many European Union countries are
      increasing their pension entitlement age from 65 to 68.

      The
      Civil Service Commission is aware of the problems that lie ahead and is
      likely to recommend an increase in the retirement age to 62 and the
      recall of recent retirees with exceptional skills, such as engineers and
      university lecturers. For this plan to work, an even greater reform is
      necessary; one that would bring about an end to promotions based purely
      on seniority, and have them replaced by those based on ability and
      performance.

      Birthdays alone count for little and age-based
      retirement has been phased out in many countries because it is
      discriminatory. Enforcing arbitrary retirement ages instead of using a
      real appraisal of a person’s competence ignores the fact that some
      people are ineffective at 65 and others at 45. Many people today are
      achieving new goals well into their 70s and beyond.

      The number
      of seniors, or those over 60, is expected to increase to 22% of the
      total population over the next two decades, up from 12% this year.
      Demographers warn that within three decades, Thailand could find itself
      in a situation where there could be just two working people bearing the
      tax burden for each elderly person with migrant labour no longer
      available. Each successive generation is likely to be smaller than the
      last.

      The process is a gradual one, but the spectre of zero
      growth looms, paving the way for a society in which the old outnumber
      the young. Such radical changes in society would have to be sustained
      through well-funded social welfare schemes. But where would the revenue
      come from to finance them? This is a ticking time bomb and action is
      needed to defuse it. There is no better time to start than the New Year.

     Reverse the Brain Drain (From Bangkok_Post)
    More than eight years have passed since Her Majesty the Queen lamented the effects of the brain drain caused by the mandatory retirement
    of civil servants at the age of 60. The Civil Service Commission agreed
    with her suggestions and in 2008 a legal amendment to the Civil Service
    Act was approved to allow a select number of senior civil servants in
    the legal and medical fields to continue working until they reached 70.

    Those qualifying were mostly judges, and the regular exodus from the
    civil service continued each September as 60-year-old retirees filed
    out the door.

    It is now clear that this change in the law did not go far enough and that the country is wasting productive human resources.

    Specifically, it failed to take into account declining birth rates
    which will gradually shrink the pool of eligible young candidates, the
    greying population and the country’s long-term needs in providing a
    growing number of public services. Nor did it take account the fact that
    the mandatory retirement age of 60 was set in 1941 when the average
    life expectancy of a Thai citizen was 52. Now it is 74 due to better health care, but retirement for most government workers and many in the private sector continues to be at 60.

    Statisticians also note the average age of the nation’s 2.7 million
    civil servants is 43 with medical expenses alone running to 60 billion
    baht a year, of which roughly half goes to dependents over the age of
    60. That health care bill can only increase. It is all part of a
    worldwide trend as governments question their ability to meet eventual social security obligations given a gradual decline in the available workforce.

    Japan is pushing its retirement age to 65 in March and many European
    Union countries are increasing their pension entitlement age from 65 to
    68.

    The Civil Service Commission is aware of the problems that lie ahead
    and is likely to recommend an increase in the retirement age to 62 and
    the recall of recent retirees with exceptional skills, such as engineers
    and university lecturers. For this plan to work, an even greater reform
    is necessary; one that would bring about an end to promotions based
    purely on seniority, and have them replaced by those based on ability
    and performance.

    Birthdays alone count for little and age-based retirement has been
    phased out in many countries because it is discriminatory. Enforcing
    arbitrary retirement ages instead of using a real appraisal of a
    person’s competence ignores the fact that some people are ineffective at
    65 and others at 45. Many people today are achieving new goals well
    into their 70s and beyond.

    The number of seniors, or those over 60, is expected to increase to
    22% of the total population over the next two decades, up from 12% this
    year. Demographers warn that within three decades, Thailand could find
    itself in a situation where there could be just two working people
    bearing the tax burden for each elderly person with migrant labour no
    longer available. Each successive generation is likely to be smaller
    than the last.

    The process is a gradual one, but the spectre of zero growth looms,
    paving the way for a society in which the old outnumber the young. Such
    radical changes in society would have to be sustained through
    well-funded social welfare schemes. But where would the revenue come

    to defuse it. There is no better time to start than the New Year.

      Hey bundee, aren’t you aware that in PH there is a two-tier retirement scheme? A government employee can retire either at the age of 60 or 65 with minimal difference in benefits. In the judiciary they peg the retirement at 70 years of age. I don’t have the statistics but based on the accounts of friends and relatives, almost all opt for 65 years. So, what’s the difference with Thailand or Japan?

That, way, those who should have been aborted during their conception but given a chance to be born only to grow up as hardened criminals will again be given the opportunity to be eliminated from the face of existence.

    Im neutral because I didn’t like contraceptives. it could have negative effects like cancer from pills because of hormonal imbalance. If you get impregnated and you drunk some pills, your offspring might suffer from abnormalities. But sex education that will be mandatory in public schools is good because teacher will more likely teach students that premarital sex is bad besides teaching them how to use contraceptives. they will also be taught the negative effects of being a single parent, etc. Theoretically, population control is also good since.. the supply of labor will decrease and then employees, laborers, maids, helpers, factory workers may demand higher salaries simply because there’s a shortage of them. The wealth gap might also shorten, Crime rates will lessen. These might also decrease inflationary pressures since there would be less consumers. The prices of house and condos might go down as well since fewer houses are needed. People can easily be accommodated and easily be provided with good healthcare because of the lower population. But there are negative effects also.. since there will be less OFWs thus lesser remittances which is actually the one which is sustaining our economy right now. also, there are fewer people who will take care of the old ones.

    Now the table is turned.  That for more than 13 years, any semblance of a “reproductive health bill” had languished in Congress, should have made us think why.  Now, if in the past, the voices of the anti-reproductive health bill advocates, the pro-life heroes, had been muffled by so much fanfare, noise and lobby money, the “reproductive health faction” of this sharply divided, confused country should prove that their wisdom, against the collective wisdom of pro-lifers to safeguard the sanctity of life, marriage, the family and sex, would not adversely affect the economy, balance demographic realities in terms of urban development, inter-migration, labor and employment, education, social and medical care, and wealth distribution with social justice in mind.

    Unless this government and its “reproductive health agenda” mainly focused on the legality of contraception to suppress human births can give impactful results, it would have gone to show that we have not learned from the experience of Thailand, Singapore, Japan, China, among others and were just trying to tout a law, we haven’t really understood could put this country in the future into virtual extinction, socially ill and welfare-dependent.  I hope that we have prepared for this situation!

    Enemies of the Church have always thought that the Church is for the quick and fast propagation of the poor because she sees this as insurance for “abuloy” continuously.  It is, of course, an emotional issue, because most of the poor cannot even go to Mass on Sundays and if it is just “money” that the Church is after, she would be better off with the rich.  The Church would like this government, to focus and prioritize impact programs to improve the lot of the poor and sustain development.  The well-being of all constituents can be achieved in a more natural, not in a sweeping, artificial way that normally brings human and social ills in its wake.  By improving the quality of life of all constituents, recognition of “responsibility” normally comes.  No one has seriously asked the question why a very poor family normally had more children than its more economically privileged counterparts and just immediately proceeded to provide them “cake” in the form of contraceptives and condoms, rather than the “bread” they need.

    The new RA10354 is the product of selfishness, representing a backward step even, seen against revival trends in the family of nations.  Please surf on reports of C-FAM over the net to analyse for yourself current happenings in the United Nations. Keywords: The Friday Fax, Catholic Family, Human Rights, International Organization Research Group.

    Here in Australia, the government is giving cash money to parents whenever a new baby is born, obviously to encourage mothers or parents to produce more children as the population is aging… Same situation is happening in developing and developed countries. They envy the Philippines.
    Another fact, the government of Australia is spending billions of dollars supporting houses and institutions caring for many people suffering from intellectual or mental disability. Study here shows that those suffering from mental disability is the effect/result of pills and contraceptives being taken by the mothers while the child is in her/his stage pregnancy….

        recall of recent retirees with exceptional skills, such as engineers and
        university lecturers. For this plan to work, an even greater reform is
        necessary; one that would bring about an end to promotions based purely
        on seniority, and have them replaced by those based on ability and
        performance.

        Birthdays alone count for little and age-based
        retirement has been phased out in many countries because it is
        discriminatory. Enforcing arbitrary retirement ages instead of using a
        real appraisal of a person’s competence ignores the fact that some
        people are ineffective at 65 and others at 45. Many people today are
        achieving new goals well into their 70s and beyond.

        The number
        of seniors, or those over 60, is expected to increase to 22% of the
        total population over the next two decades, up from 12% this year.
        Demographers warn that within three decades, Thailand could find itself
        in a situation where there could be just two working people bearing the
        tax burden for each elderly person with migrant labour no longer
        available. Each successive generation is likely to be smaller than the
        last.

        The process is a gradual one, but the spectre of zero
        growth looms, paving the way for a society in which the old outnumber
        the young. Such radical changes in society would have to be sustained
        through well-funded social welfare schemes. But where would the revenue
        come from to finance them? This is a ticking time bomb and action is
        needed to defuse it. There is no better time to start than the New Year.

        Before your “the sky is falling” alarmist phenomenon even would be apparent in our country if eveyone stops having babies today, would take another 50 years. Yet I don’t think that would even arrive…coz the RH bill won’t be dictating people to quit having babies all together. Our TFR is still way above the replacement rate. So..go ahead you’re free to daydream..but spare us your baseless, alarmist b…s stories.

      • bundee

        You talk like a fake scientist or a false god? That’s the actual experience of Thailand which is similar to other developed countries that promoted it.

      • tamumd

        I am a false god? Sure ..wanna worship me? lol Again in your naive, ignorant little knowledge about those misleading findings…you randomly cherry picked countries with aging population and make a sweeping conclusion that whatever happened in those places would also happen to the Philippines. Well hello…it’s not that simple. You have to consider the context and other factors specific to those places why those things are happening in those countries. If you look at the TFRs of those countries..they’re way lower than ours. Japan’s 1.39 while Thailand’s 1.5. The Philippines on the other hand is still at 3.14…. way above the replacement rate of 2.1 set by the UN. That means even if we get to 2.1 we would still not have the problems those countries have coz we would still hover around the replacement rate. So again…you have your “the sky is falling” alarmist diatribe are baseless and no empirical basis whatsover.

      • bundee

        You are stressing only on your Condom gods vis-a-vis the population. What about clean government, corruption, economic productivity, etc. Have you been to those countries? The problems are coming up.  The moral fiber of the people have been eroded which is immeasurable and irreversible.

      • tamumd

        Who said we are against clean government, extinguishing corruption, increasing economic productivity?. To help push our country to progress…we have to do all those including the RH bill. The problem with you anti-RH ilk is you dwell on false dichotomy fallacy. The issue is not choosing just between two options…we could actually try everything that needs to be done to help our people and elevate our standard  of living.

        Yes I’ve been to those countries and more. Don’t be naive….what moral fiber are you trying to protect in our midst? The Filipino moral fiber has been rotten for a long time now. Heard of the almost daily murders, robberies, scam, corruption, homicides, rape, prostitution? In fact we have the highest teen pregnancy rate in the ASEAN…that means our kids are having sex even before they have the means to raise a family. So what kinda moral fiber are you so dearly trying to protect? There’s nothing to protect. It’s already kaput. Snap out of your pipe dreams.

      • bundee

         And who say we are against progress? You are evil. You accuse the Church of something from your evil mind. You see how divisive the issues are?  It means the approach is blatanly wrong. Do you think you can solve all these problems by RH E-bill and just condemning the Catholics? Never in your dreams.

      • tamumd

        Actually the obstructionist stance of the catholic church on matters of national importance..is hendering our progress. Funny how you label people “evil” if we say something against your church when it’s actually your church and its hierarchy who have long history of committing evil deeds to humanity including the still ongoing child sexual molestation cases. The top hierarchy including the pope were in cahoots of hiding the evidence and dragging the investigation to render swift justice to the children victims. Isn’t that more evil? If not…I dunno what is.

        Read again what I said. solution to poverty are all those that you mentioned including the RH bill. I never say only the RH would solve all our society’s ills.

      • bundee

         You are anti-Catholic that’s the summary. Case is closed. You will always argue according to your tiriring. parang yong isa doon sa Senate. If a member of the administration is corrupt does it make the whole govt corrupt? If Aquino investigates, does it make him obstructionist? If you fight for what you believe, are you obstructionist? Good luck to your anti-Catholic sentiment. Hope it will bring you Good Luck.

      • tamumd

        To you the case is closed. To me it’s not. Hahahaha..the problem with child sexual molestation is it involves the higher ranks in the hierarchy of the catholic church as I said even including the pope. So yeah that makes the whole drinking water..not potable anymore.

        FYI ..your church is maligned because it is the only one that is rabidly opposing this important legislation. Good if you guys are just voicing out your opinions. Oh no….there are calls for civil disobedience, excommunicating the president, tying stupid red ribbons, contesting the newly passed law in the supreme court. If that’s not wasting time, resources and being an obstructionist…i dunno what you wanna call that.

      • Loggnat

         I wish the Philippines has those kinds of problems and I also wish the country will get to that point where they can afford and has the resources to correct and rectify those problems. Right now, the country has a different kind of problem that daydreaming about those progressive nations ‘demographic winter’ is just it pipe dreams. There is a long and hard journey to get to that point  to worry about that thing, ‘demographic winter’ when we’re still in the middle of a third world ‘deprivation summer’.

      • bundee

        They have not solved their problems.  They are frantically looking for solutions. The RH Bill was not well-thought.  We could have a better Law integrating the unique Filipino cultural and moral aspects without creating such pains and divisions now. Reducing corruption plus a sound social and economic programs could have done  better results.

      • Loggnat

        At least they are looking and trying out some solutions that other countries had tried and seems to be successful that they are in their ‘demographic winter’ instead of not doing anything at all. It is not the overall solution but small steps and small solutions to portions of the whole problem may require more fragmented, complicated and various solutions that when put together may eventually solve not all but most of the problem. And this might be enough to push the country towards better and higher standard of living and a bullish economy. Let’s hope that the powers that are in position now will continue to search and implement more solutions to the nation’s economic problem.

      • bundee

         You are selfish a dude.  You create a situation for the future generation without foresight and without care for their plight. Those future Filipinos are your future children of your children . . . Our politicians are selfish and they blame the Catholic Church?

      • Loggnat

        If I’m selfish, you’re a cog on the wheel who who whine and criticize those who are trying to make the wheel turn. Failing when honestly trying to solve the problem still still eliminates one solution that will not work, thus lessons are learned and the search for the ones that work to solve the problem has one less non-working solution to deal with. Without care for the plight for the future generation, you say, those who dwell on ‘status quo’, sit on their hands while criticizing those who tries, and fear to try other solutions are the ones who have no foresight and with no care for the flight of the future generation. Those future Filipinos deserves more than what is in store for them if the economic condition does not improve. I never mention the Catholic Church in my posts and I believe they have a vital role to play in the progress of the Philippines as long as they stick to the spiritual side of the people and leave the governing and solving the economy problem to the government. If those who believe in the Catholic Church and wants numerous children, nobody is forcing them to limit their children. It comes down to the choice of the family on the number of children they wanted to have. Plain and simple.

      • bundee

        I pardon your misreadings. The Catholics do not support Irresponsible Parenthood. The  good intents are similar (e.g. space out children according to parents’ plans and capacity) but in a natural way. Why make RH the solution for all when the same problem can be approached in another less divisive way with similar results? For the poor. for women. For progress. Those who say that the Catholic Church is against all the good aims are evil, no less.

      • Loggnat

        The RH will not coerce anybody not to use condom or contraceptives nor will they force those who are using the normal way to stop or desist their preferred method. The RH will not force anybody to do anything that they do not want to do nor do they have the power to do so if the woman/family refuses to do it. The choice is still there and will always be there plus the education and knowledge on the selection of whichever method that they chose. It will better serve the Catholic Church or any other religion who prefers the natural way to assert to have a representation in the RH clinics to properly present the normal way of spacing birth so the family will be better educated in their choice.

      • bundee

         Miscalculated nila. Di ma solve ang poverty at di ma solve ang divisive issue sa Rh. Good luck po!

      • Loggnat

        Only time will tell. As I read from some wise individual…. They should hope for the best result and also prepare to alleviate for the worst. Wish the country all the luck, good ones…. in the universe.

  • JUDGE

    Let us see if there is an effect of this Republic act in controlling the population of the country.  The government will now FUND and UNDERTAKE widespread distribution of family planning devices such as condoms, birth control pills (BCPs) and IUDs, as the government continues to disseminate information on their use through all health care centers. So expect that next year, you can see all these devices in every household. I just hope that only MARRIED couples will have an access to these or else it will just promote premarital sex to teens. Since we are going to import these things from multinational suppliers, we hope that there will be no CORRUPTION in the acquisition of the said devices. Goodluck to all of us. I hope tama ang naging decision natin to push through with this RA. I hope hindi totoo ang sinasabing binayaran ng mga suppliers ng contraceptives ang mga senators to support this Act. Kung ginagwa lang sana ng DOH officials ang trabaho nila, we don’t actually need this law.

      Demographic winter is a small problem compared to demographic plague of having more people than the economy can support. It is a far off bug too, and we have plenty of time to prepare for it. And yes it it is a concept often used by bishop-backed anti-RH  canines to scare off people from supporting the bill. You know, a way of twisting truth which is a trademark of the anti-RH group.

    Good work Mr. President!

    Survey shows drop in approval of Aquino

    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    4:23 am | Saturday, December 29th, 2012

    The results of the SWS poll, conducted from Dec. 8 to 11, showed Mr.
    Aquino’s net satisfaction rating falling from plus 67 (77 percent
    satisfied minus 10 percent dissatisfied) in August to plus 55 (72
    percent satisfied minus 17 percent dissatisfied).

    . . . . . . . . .

    The President’s aggressive support for the reproductive health bill “may
    have been a contributory factor,” too, said Coloma, although this was
    not to blame for the decline in his satisfaction rating. (Rationalization?)

    • joshmale2004

      Rationalization? Well, the 55% satisfaction rating of Pres Aquino is far mor higher than the highest positive rating garnered by GMA during her term as President.

      • bundee

          Bakit GMA po? We are talking of Aquino that has received a decreased rating. You are Rationalizing. It is from Inquirer, my dear!

      • joshmale2004

        Why? GMA was also President. So I want to compare them for my thesis and no law says I can not compare.Besides, the issue in this news is about the RH Bill. then why also include Aquino survey if you don’t mind. If you can include other topic like Aquino survey, I can also include to compare with GMA.

      • bundee

        Ok. So because of GMA bumaba ang rating ni Abnoy? Yon ba ang logic mo? Kung corrupt si GMA corrupt din si Noy? Tama di ba?  Inquirer ang nag publish ng survey hindi ako. Nabasa mo ang sa bandang huli: The President’s aggressive support for the reproductive health bill “may have been a contributory factor,” too, said Coloma, although this was not to blame for the decline in his satisfaction rating?

        Yan! Maliwanag po ba?

      • joshmale2004

        HEY!!!!! Don’t put words in my mouth that i never said. Ikaw ang nagsabi ng mga sinasabi mong yan. Whatever my purpose for comparing the two Presidents are for my personal use and not for public kaya wag kang mag insinuate ng di ko sinasabi. In the first place, wala akong sinabing ikaw ang nag publish ng news. In the first place If for whatever intent and purpose, why did you post that news when the issue at hand here is the RH bill?

      • bundee

         May comment sa bandang huli about RH Bill po. Sorry kung the truth hurts po ha?

      • joshmale2004

        Ikaw yata ang nasasaktan sa pagka compare kay GMA. The President’s current 55% rating is still high and very acceptable compared to the negative ratings of GMA’s 10 year rule. I am very happy and I will celebrate this today.

      • bundee

         Awa ako sa yo. Wala akong connection kay GMA. Kita ng buong mundo ang logic mo dito. Truth hurts kasi pro Aquino ka. Ako ayaw ko sa kanya kahit binoto ko sya noon dahil sa forced RH evil.

      And nationwide? Baka nga pare-pareho lang ang tinatanong nilang mga tao sa bawat survey nila..

      • bundee

      • bundee

         There was a comment at the end about RH bill po!

      • joshmale2004

        There is a comment. True. But a side comment in another news item which is not related to this news at hand. Even the side comment of Coloma is he is not sure if there is really an effect of the RH Bill. You are trying to start an out of place topic and issue here and creating an intrigue of which now that GMA is also mentioned and compared with Pnoy, nagagalit ka na.

      • bundee

         What’s your problem? Truth hurts? Bakit ako magalit about GMA? Walang connection. At di naman ako kampon ni GMA. Kayo mga mahilig sa pulitika ang nagsimula ng lahat. Gusto nyo hatiin na lang natin Pilipinas. Suggest mo kay Abnoy mo.

      • joshmale2004

        See? I don’t have problem and I did not vote for Pnoy. I voted for Gilbert and accepted reality na talo manok ko. But you people seem to have personal problem with our President. You think it’s proper to address any person a maligning name “Abnoy” instead of his real name if you do not have grudge with him? I don’t do and name call like that even to former President GMA. I address her as he should be out of respect.

      • bundee

    Mabuti na lang meron tayong presidenteng inuuna kapakanan ng karamihan, hindi pansariling interes. Kung pansariling interes ang sinusulong ni Pnoy, malamang yung mga batas o policy na namang pampasikat uunahin niya. Yung mga patchy solutions ang gusto ng mga obispo at trapo, para dumami pa lalo gutom s Pinas. Kasi pag gutom mga tao, di na makapag-isip ng matino iboboto na lang mga walang kwentang pulitiko. Si Pnoy, bihira lang mangyayari sa kasaysayan ng pulitika sa bansa. Nanalo siya dahil sikat ang mga magulang niya. Pero swerte na lang natin dahil at the same time, siya’y hindi trapo tulad ni erap at gma. Happy new yearand peace na lang!

         So pag matagal nang mali ay i legalize na lang kahit mali? Kaya may Rh Bill?  Yan ang argumento Pinoy style? Sige lang. Bahala na. Ok na yan. Ang mali ay tinutuwid kahit panalo sa Congress at Senate at kahit may interference sa Executive branch.  RH Ev-Bill will cause further poverty and moral disintegration.

      • tamumd

        That means the old and the status quo are not working….like the fake moralizing of your church who turns a blind eye on corrupt, evil activities around them as long as they gain patronage from those involved. So it’s time to try other solutions.
         
        Ah..another one-sided whine from a bonafide anti-rh ilk. If those corrupt bishops were given due respect by allowing them to hubnob with some congressmen during the deliberations in full view of the TV cameras, how much more government officials from the administration? After all those bishops don’t even pay income taxes..so they should have no business to being in the halls of congress.

      • bundee

         Singilin mo sila. Eh yong corruption naman sa gobyerno. Kung ilabas nila lahat ng kurakot para gamitin ng mga mahihirap sana wala nang gulo ang RH na to. So kung naghihirap ang mga Pinoy Katoliko ang may kasalanan at hindi ang may hawak ng budget at palakad sa gobyerno? Anti-Katoliko lang ang kaya nyo at hindi talaga ang para sa mahirap at anu-ano pa sa Rh daw.

      • joshmale2004

        The final RH Bill version has just been published an hour ago here. Better read it in full and cite which part of the bill to support your claims and not just ranting without basis. Let us be subjective and objective instead of using pressumptive arguments.

      • rbrtsmith

        they won’t read it..they are content of the presumptive ‘pandora’s box’ of rh bill.

      • tamumd

        I think that’s the law that we should pass next…tax the church. The corruption in government is being addressed  by the current administration. We already got rid of the midnight appointee CJ. The previous president is in house arrest, governor of Cebu is in suspension, the governor of Pangisinan is being investigated for his link to jeuting. So yeah..solving corruption which is entrenched in every Filipino psyche cannot be accomplished overnight. We are not blaming the poor…we are actually coming up with a solution that they could use if they want to. However no one would be forcing people to avail contraceptives and sex education if they don’t want to.
         
        Again….let me make the obvious apparent to you. The catholic church is the lone obstructionist group that is h..ell bent of hijacking the implementation of this law.. so it follows that your church would bear the brunt of being maligned for being the lone obstructionist.

However it is well known to the entire world that your church hierarchy are the evil ones..from the crusades all the way to the still ongoing child sexual molestations.
        If you don’t know that.. certifying a piece of legislation urgent is within the legal purview of the president. He also has a veto power. Your bishops on the other hand is not part of our government whatsoever. They don’t have any business in that hall of congress. Period.

    Sa lahat ng anti RH, I am wondering ilan ang mga anak nyo? 5? 6? 10? 12? 18? Why did you stop having children at 18 (or whatever number)? If indeed the number of children has nothing to do with available resources. A man and a wife (exclusive to each other) could potentially yield 30 children if absolutely no family planning is taken. So why are you still peddling the LIE that OVERPOPULATION is not a problem?

    • bundee

       Catholics are for Responsible Parenthood not Irresponsible.  It is the moral aspect approach to sexuality that is the problem. Catholics are not anti poor or Anti-women. We are not anti-progress. The devil twist your minds to accuse the Catholics to be otherwise.  Malalim ang pinaglalaban kapag relihiyon ang pinag uusapan. Kaya good luck kung di natatapos ito sa pag publish lang ng RH law.

      • Don Dee

        You did not answer one question. Is OVERPOPULATION good or bad? Ilan ang anak mo? Na max out mo ba ang potential ni missis? If not, why not if “overpopulation” is so good? OR is the argument of the bishops all LIES?

    To those Senators & Congressmen who voted for the passage of the RH bill & Desaperados Bill, I salute all of you from the bottom of my heart!  You showed an exemplary act, you have the guts & the balls to stand on your principles without fear of repercussions!  I am a catholic, but I will vote for you when the time comes.

    Why so sensitive on the sentiment of the Church by avoiding confrontation?  Does the church represents the Filipino people?  Now is the time for the church to be afraid and start changing their ways.  They must pay more attention to the spiritual needs of their flock or suffer a mass exodus of their memberships.  Religion in the Philippines is no longer the dominance of the Catholic church!

    When I went for seminar before my marriage (2004), the priest told me to plan the size of my family and choose a method of family planning… he said he would not say which one because its my choice and responsibility… He was very open minded and said “choose the lesser evil of using contraceptives than bringing out a child that you cannot support.”

    Responsible parenthood.. contraceptives helped me and my wife.. give credit to where its due.. I don’t know what others experienced, but mine is reason enough to support this LAW..

    Obviously, they cannot read in-between-the-lines.  Operationally, the effect of the RH Law is just the floodgate of the 3rd world (captive) market on condoms & pills.  Other provisions, pertaining, thereto, are just “smoke & mirrors” flowery/sugarcoated advertising provisions, which were already embodied in the other existing laws.
    I personally experienced a lot of practicing physicians and the frequent visiting medical reps.  When the physician issued an Rx of a pharma that he/she favoured (for some commissions), although most of the contents of the products are placibos & steroids, and one that causes stomach pains, the physician would issue a prescription, even if the meds are not that effective.  The pharma then included in their database the name of the issuing physician for their record and for the tracking of the commission due.
    Back to the obvious operational flaws of the RH Bill, is that, it would be the supplier/manufacturer and government official collusion.  Would it include a BID/TENDER PROCESS? Hahahahahaha, that alone is a whole lot of loopholes. 
    Hahahahahaha! Juan Tanga magising ka na kasi. 
    In reading the provision of Law or any contract it’s always the PAYMENT TERMS that matters most.  The Bill of Quantities when not boken down/detailed/and fined tuned would pose a big problems in the future.
    Pag issue kasing ganyan, dapat hindi lang EMOTION ang GINAGAMIT.  Dapat yong Techno-Commercial aspect din ng mga ito.
    Hahahahahahaha! Sa pag-sign ni Noynoy, yari na kaagad ang signing commission niyan.  Akala mo ba para sa mga mahihirap.  Hahahahahaha! Wala lang silang merkado para sa mga gawa nilang plastic balloons at placibo na birth control pills.

    .UNCONSTITUTIONAL..ARTICLE VI Section 26 (1) Every bill passed by the Congress shall embrace only one subject which shall be expressed in the title thereof…
    .A bill must relate to only one subject matter which must be expressed in its title…AN ACT PROVIDING FOR A NATIONAL POLICY ON RESPONSIBLE PARENTHOOD AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH ..clearly TWO TITLES….responsible parenthood & reproductive health…

    UNCONSTITUTIONAL & it RUNS counter to its DECLARED policy..PREVENTING occurence of LIFE…by means of STATE INTERVENTION……which is sacred in our CONSTITUTION and as a nation…EQUALITY extends to right to be BORN ALIVE without STATE or outside intervention ..STATE funding the means of PREVENTION, INTERVENTION & DEPRIVATION TO LIFE runs amuck to the bill of rights..RIGHT to LIFE, EQUALITY & EQUAL PROTECTION … clearly USE & FUNDING of RH is a PREVENTION & INTERVENTION to continuity of life…….SEC. 2. Declaration of Policy Pursuant to the declaration of State policies under Section 12, Article II of the 1987 Philippine Constitution, it is the duty of the State to protect and strengthen the family as a basic autonomous social institution and equally protect the life of the mother and the life of the unborn from conception. The State shall protect and promote the right to health of women especially mothers in particular and of the people in general and instill health consciousness among them. The family is the natural and fundamental unit of society. The State shall likewise protect and advance the right of families in particular and the people in general to a balanced and healthful environment in accord with the rhythm and harmony of nature. The State also recognizes and guarantees the promotion and equal protection of the welfare and rights of children, the youth, and the unborn

    UNCONSTITUTIONAL yan..CLASS LEGISLATION against the POOR & FUTURE generation of filipinos…(o) Poor refers to members of households identified as poor through the NHTS-PR by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) or any subsequent system used by the national government in identifying the poor. .& GENOCIDE of FUTURE generations of full blood filipinos which is INIMICAL to country’s interest & survival as a race….with the INTERVENTION of the state to right to life & POPULATION as requirement for STATEHOOD ..the ENTIRE gamut of the CONSTITUTION ( from art 1 to art XVIII) are RENDERED INUTILE & GROSSLY VIOLATED ……..!

    UNCONSTITUTIONAL..the LAW specifically TARGETED POPULATION GROWTH…which is a requirement of a STATE……(people, territory & govt )…p) Reproductive Health (RH) refers to the state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, in ALL MATTERS relating to the REPRODUCTIVE system and to its functions and processes. This implies that people are able to have a responsible, safe, consensual and satisfying sex life, that they have the capability to reproduce and the freedom to decide if, when, and how often to do so. This further implies that women and men attain equal relationships in matters related to sexual relations and reproduction…SIGURO kung meron ng RH ng ipinanganak ang mga POLITIKO na pumirma dito..ABORTED ang law na ito…malamang nasa basurahan sila katulad ng condom…dapat ang TARGET lang ng RH yun me MENTAL & PHYSICAL problems HINDI yung poor at filipino race in general…

    GO PATRIOTic LAWYERS i-TRO nyo na agad ibase nyo dito sa arguments ko ABORTED agad yan RH…by natural death…ipasok nyo INTERGENERATIOAL INTEREST, PUBLIC INTEREST, CLASS LEGISLATION,RIGHT to life, equality & equal protection to all & SURVIVAL of the STATE doctrines……..condolence RH….. : > )

      Kung ayaw mo talaga ng RH bill may choice ka naman di ba? If you despise the RH bill that much, then you should make a vow not to use any form of contraceptive. Di ka naman siguro ipakukulong pag di ka gumamit ng condom. The choice is yours. :)

         population is key if it can be harnessed.  for example if they have skills and education.  what does it say about our people’s education when people shoot guns in the air and blow their fingers off every new year?  PH has had a large population for a long time and there were no benefits over that time

        The National Statistics Office reports a simple literacy rate of 93.4%…..one of the HIGHEST in the WORLD..

        our people re-invented themselves..since our political leadersare corrupt, useless & elite hacienderos..the PEOPLE trying to escape hopelessness..luckily such self re-invention help the COUNTRY tremendously…now even we put a LUNATIC, pig or a dog in the palace,senate or house our ECONOMY will continually grow due to EXODUS of EDUCATED & TALENTED FILIPNOS who send their hard earned $ in the country….
        that is why we are NO.1 BPO now in the world…our  business process outsourcing have been identified as area with some of the best opportunities for growth for the country & OWF’s are requested by foreign govts & people. we have now 12 million ofws’ & migrants…that is why we have $84 billion fc reserve because of educated & youthful population…without them our economy now is in BOTTOMLESS PIT….in fact our youthful educated  labor force is the envy of the world…..the more population the stronger OUR ECONOMY & our nation… MY FRIEND

        I am glad that you are optimistic about the future of the country, but I still do not agree that a large population alone is enough to create jobs or create an economy that can benefit all people of society.

        The BPO industry only employs college graduates while there are many more unskilled and semi-skilled workers who are unemployed. That is why many people encourage the growth of manufacturing and industry to soak up this vast labor pool.

        The large number of OFWs is an effect of a poor job market in the PH. though OFWs send money back home, a percentage is paid in taxes to the host country and the worker spends money there benefiting their economy. OFWs should not be seen as commodities, they are people who sacrifice time with their families and probably benefit the host country more than they are paid.

        To make matters worse, the highly educated OFWs find ways to stay in the host country, taking away talent and knowledge from the PH, in other words, ‘a brain drain’. That is one reason why we can’t boast the best healthcare in the world even though we have so many trained nurses.

        Instead of going abroad, skilled Pinoys should stay here and let companies come to us instead. In this way, foreign direct investments can pour into the country and create jobs. entrepreneurial pinoys with experience abroad could use what they learned and open business in PH.

        But you should also think of the morality of seeing people just as warm bodies that are used to generate income.

         singapore, leichenstein, luxemborg … many of the tiny countries are richer per capita.  in india and china there is a big discrepancy between the rich and the poor

      I’m not sure why I’m still bothering replying to you, but India is nowhere near #3 in terms of top economies.  There’s also so much wrong with that economic ‘analysis’ that I could write a book about it.

      Also, I’d ask why exactly the RH Bill is unconstitutional, but we both know you’re just parroting the CBCP propaganda you see being thrown around.

      Seriously, please change your misspelled name.  You’re an insult to an intelligent man.

        lol …….something is wrong with you my friend…seek professional  help… : > )

        Replying to IDIOTJose,

        You are still an IDIOT.  OLOL

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

        Hi IanAloser.

        You done crying over the RH Bill being passed?

      • IanAlera

        Replying to IDIOT Jose,

        YOU SAID — “Well, neither he nor I are actually propagandists, so that’s probably not very much… For the record, I don’t think you’re a propagandist either, as I figure even CBCP propagandists must have SOME minimum IQ requirement.”

        I SAY — Your post is proof that you are an IDIOT. — So you are not a ‘propagandist’ by virtue of your IDIOCY? BOBO
