    so this is the final content of the Bill now a law. Good chance for everyone to read the law in its entirety and decide for themselves on which, how and what.

  • FORTHE GOOD

    ang INDIA at CHINA.. maunlad sila dahil malaki ang population capital nila…TOP WORLD ECONOMIES sila…economic predictions by 2023 china will be at the top..but india will overtake china by 2048….

    ang RH ( Republic’s Holocaust ) pakana ng mga DAYUHAN yan..ANTI-progress, ANTI-patriotism,ANTI-country,ANTI-POOR & ANTI -filipino…

    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…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 INTERVENTION TO LIFE runs amuck to the bill of rights..RIGHT to LIFE, EQUALITY & EQUAL PROTECTION … clearly USE & FUNDING of RH is a PREVENTION…….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 “…(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 POLITKO 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 PATRIOT 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….. : > )

       Nonsense. Hundreds of millions of people live below poverty in china and india. despite progress in some segments of their society, poverty abound in the countryside and even in the metro areas. believe it or not, there are slum areas in china and india much bigger than those in other countries.

    • stromboli67

      It’s ironic that you cited China and India as paragons for economic progress.  But take note, these two countries have among the most aggressive population control programs in the world.  Yes, their economic ascendency is partly  being achieved via a sustainable population growth goal. 

      Ironically, you have put forth a strong argument for the RH law as one of the means for this country to achieve economic progress as well. LOL

      • Albert Einstien

        NOPE china is abandoning one child policy..& india..Population Growth? No Problem, Says Indian Think Tank
        “India and the Philippines reap benefits of the demographic dividend of having younger populations,” stated the Indian market-liberal Barun Mitra, Population control is often based on the argument that it is necessary for socio-economic development, and that parents are unable to rationally decide on their family size. The downside of enforced population targets however is that it not leads to an aging population but also to distortions in the gender ration because of a preference for sons, and to greater violence against women. “China is the first country in history to become old before becoming rich,” Barun Mitra stated. “A younger population is needed for a society to come up with new and innovative ideas, and also to able to care for older citizens. India and the Philippines will see this effect in the near future.” .

        both CHINA & INDIA  sees that POPULATION is a foundation of a  great nation..

      • stromboli67

        If you want to be taken seriously you should not invent your “facts.” China has not abandoned it’s one-child policy.  The China Research Foundation, a think tank affiliated with the government RECOMMENDED gradual phasing out the one-child policy, a policy which the government has not accepted. 

        India has adopted the National Population Policy 2000 (NPP2000) that sets a goal of 2-child policy by the year 2010.  The country continues to implement measures that would achieve the sustainable population growth targets.

        Barun Mitra’s ideas are just that ideas – they are not facts.  Anyone can cherry pick a think tank pronouncement that supports one’s argument.

    The Clean Air Act was passed into Law in 1999 by Estrada.
    After ~14 years, we still do not have clean air.RH Law will likewise not solve this country’s core problems.So don’t put all your misplaced hopes way way way up high on these laws specially the ones trying to regulate someone’s else’s libido.LOL.

    • kulittwit

      Stupid comment. air on earth is getting dirtier and dirtier. one result, climate change. clearly an argument of a loser trying to connect RH law even to air quality.LOL!!

      • boypalabobo

        Boy you’re naive….and…also stupid.  This country has tons of laws you have never heard of….and most of them are not enforced.  Go ahead and believe in this new law. I will laugh at you for the next 20 years when this country’s population reaches 200 million.  HAHAHA.

    “SEC. 18. Sexual and Reproductive Health Programs for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs).”

    While Congress did not explicitly mention them, “PWDs” definitely includes priests and bishops and all other persons whose membership in any organization, whether religious or not, require them to take a vow of celibacy and/or abstinence from sexual intercourse with their fellow humans, regardless of sex, age, race or creed. 

    For example, priests,bishops, and nuns must be educated on the proper, responsible, legal, safe, and satisfying  release of their libido.

      excuse me SIR! Wag niyo pong maliitin ang mga Nurses. We had pharmacology, Obstetrics and medical-surgical courses in College. OXYTOCIN is a VERY common and VERY basic drug you can always encounter on lying ins and any other delivery room. We  (and the midwives) were taught what it is, how much to give, when it is indicated, what it was for and what to expect. Eh mas tanga ka pa eh satsat ka ng satsat di mo naman alam pinagsasasabi mo

        Since your below than below average IQ wouldnt absorb anything here. Let me just remind you how it goes in an argument. Going as far as insulting means you ran out of defenses on trying to defend your really dumb argument. 

        and mind you, i missed 65% of my review classes let alone busy with something else for a month before my boards yet i was close to being a topnotcher.

        another bobo-quote from you

        “DAHIL BA SA LEAKAGE SA EAST TO THE NORT REVIEW CENTER OR DAHIL SA GAGAGAPOSIN KA WIKILEAKS?”

    ang INDIA at CHINA.. maunlad sila dahil malaki ang population capital nila…TOP WORLD ECONOMIES sila…economic predictions by 2023 china will be at the top..but india will overtake china by 2048….

    ang RH ( Republic’s Holocaust ) pakana ng mga DAYUHAN yan..ANTI-progress, ANTI-patriotism,ANTI-country,ANTI-POOR & ANTI -filipino..

    .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…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 INTERVENTION TO LIFE runs amuck to the bill of rights..RIGHT to LIFE, EQUALITY & EQUAL PROTECTION … clearly USE & FUNDING of RH is a PREVENTION…….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 “….(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 PATRIOT 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….. : > )

       Nonsense. Hundreds of millions of people live below poverty in china and
      india. despite progress in some segments of their society, poverty
      abound in the countryside and even in the metro areas. believe it or
      not, there are slum areas in china and india much bigger than those in
      other countries.

      If economic gains hardly trickle to the poor in the philippines, it is even worse in china and india due to the huge population.

      • Albert Einstien

        china is abandoning one child policy..& india..Population Growth? No Problem, Says Indian Think Tank
        “India and the Philippines reap benefits of the demographic dividend of having younger populations,” stated the Indian market-liberal Barun Mitra, Population control is often based on the argument that it is necessary for socio-economic development, and that parents are unable to rationally decide on their family size. The downside of enforced population targets however is that it not leads to an aging population but also to distortions in the gender ration because of a preference for sons, and to greater violence against women. “China is the first country in history to become old before becoming rich,” Barun Mitra stated. “A younger population is needed for a society to come up with new and innovative ideas, and also to able to care for older citizens. India and the Philippines will see this effect in the near future.” .both CHINA & INDIA sees that POPULATION is a foundation of a great nation..

      • kulittwit

        Go to both countries and see for yourself slum areas. what you see in the philippines is nothing. There are more poor people in india and china.

        The RH law is not an anti-population law. nobody is mandated to limit their children. those who can afford it can have as many as they want. for those who want to plan their family on birth spacing and limit their children, they are given information and choices.

      • boypalabobo

        It’s “slum” areas.  You have a talent for stating the obvious.  There are poor people in the USA too.  Oh and guess what…there are poor people in every part of the world.

        Right. That’s why having a huge population is not a guarantee of economic progress as what the impostor alberteinstein here would like to show.

    this is a landmark legislation. the filipinos should thank the president and those lawmakers spec. sen. pia cayetano, meriam santiago, edcel lagman to name a few who stood their ground despite the anger of the catholic priests. they should not interfere if they know nothing about economics and just want to impose their halucinations of their doctrines or dogmas. i think God would be happy at last the filipinos decided to take their fate in their own hands as freedom is also embodied in the faith of christians.

    Maliwanag na isinasaad sa batas na ito na illegal ang abortion at ito ay mahigpit na pinagbabawal. Wala akong nakikitang masama rito. 

    Maliwanag din sa nakikita kong dahilan nila na tutol sila dahil ayaw nilang baguhin ang kanilang makalumang paniniwala at iginigiit nila ang mali gaya noong araw na ipinagpipilitan nilang ang araw ang umiikot sa mundo. Ayaw nilang tanggapin ang natuklasan ni Galileo.
