Palace welcomes anti-RH suit

Malacañang on Thursday welcomed the suit filed in the Supreme Court against the new reproductive health (RH) law, but belittled the arguments raised by the petitioners.

Secretary Edwin Lacierda, presidential spokesperson, said it was “good” that lawyer-couple James and Lovely Ann Imbong filed a case because “now the government through the Office of Solicitor General will be prepared to defend the RH law.”

In a press briefing Thursday, Lacierda said the petitioners did not raise any new issues that had not been brought up and answered during the congressional debates.

“The contention that was raised by Mr. James Imbong is not something new, it had already been raised during the debates,” he said.

Budget Secretary Florencio Abad said it was the right of the Imbongs to question Republic Act No. 10354—the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Law—but “whether they would succeed was another matter.”

“They have to overcome the strong constitutional (as already cogently argued by eminent constitutionalist Fr. Joaquin Bernas), jurisprudential, equity and practical (both local and international experience) foundations upon which the much delayed responsible parenthood policy stands,” said Abad in a text message.

The RH law mandates the state to provide reproductive health services, including access to contraceptives and information on family planning, to couples that ask for it, and age-appropriate sex education to schoolchildren.

Arguing that this was unconstitutional, the Imbongs petitioned the high court to stop the government from enforcing the law.

 

Negating PH aspirations

In their petition for certiorari and prohibition, the Imbongs said the law introduced policies that “negate and frustrate the foundational ideals and aspirations of the sovereign Filipino.”

The law is to take effect on Jan. 17, or 15 days after its publication in a periodical of general circulation. It was quietly signed into law by President Aquino on Dec. 21, apparently to avoid stoking the passions that had surrounded it since its inception, especially on the part of the local Catholic Church.

The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said Thursday it supported the Imbongs’ petition although it did not have a direct hand in its filing.

Petition was lay initiative

 

Fr. Melvin Castro, executive secretary of the CBCP-Episcopal Commission On Family and Life, said the petition was a lay initiative and was not orchestrated by the bishops who had been blocking passage of an RH law for 14 years.

He said the fact that James Imbong was the son of CBCP legal counsel Jo Imbong was “only incidental.” Jo Imbong is a “collaborating counsel” in the case.

“We are glad the ordinary Catholic faithful are taking the initiative to further the discussion on the RH bill. Its enactment into law would not end our opposition to it,” Castro said.

The law’s principal author in the House of Representatives yesterday rushed to its defense.

Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman belittled the petition filed by the Imbongs,  saying it was “premature because it seeks to prevent the implementation of a law which is not yet in effect.”

“(It) is completely constitutional and will surmount any attack or test on its constitutionality,” Lagman said in a statement.

‘Flawed and fallacious’

 

Lagman also said that questioning the RH law based on the state guarantee of equal protection for the “life of the mother and the life of the unborn was flawed and fallacious.”

“The Constitution mandates the protection of the life of the unborn from conception. In other words, no less than the Constitution acknowledges that life begins when conception sets in, and it is upon conception that there is an ‘unborn’ which is entitled to protection,” he said.

Another coauthor said the challenge to the RH law gave its proponents

one more opportunity to further explain its merits to the people, including its critics.

“I see no legal infirmity or illegality in any of its provisions,” Akbayan party-list Rep. Kaka Bag-ao, a lawyer, said in a phone interview. “If they want to question it, this is a good opportunity to explain it more to them.”

Senators both for and against the RH law also welcomed the Supreme Court case.

Sen. Panfilo Lacson, one of the main proponents of the RH bill in the upper chamber, noted the measure survived intense scrutiny during heated debates in the Senate.

Subject to intense scrutiny

“The controversies and divisiveness attached to the measure while undergoing the legislative processes involved in lawmaking added more interest and caution before it was finally approved in both houses of Congress,” he said in a text message.

Senate Majority Leader Tito Sotto, who opposed the measure, said he believed the Supreme Court would intensely scrutinize the law but his concern was still that it was imposed on Filipinos by foreign powers to influence or regulate the Philippine population.

“That’s why even if my amendments were accepted, I still voted against it,” he said. With reports from  Cathy Yamsuan, Christian V. Esguerra and Leila B. Salaverria

    “In their petition for certiorari and prohibition, the Imbongs said the law introduced policies that “negate and frustrate the foundational ideals and aspirations of the sovereign Filipino.””

    The Imbongs do not owe their allegiance to the Philippines but to Rome and Padre Damaso and  here they are pretending to know the aspirations of Filipinos and  shamelessly presuming to speak for them. Very much like their all-knowing, hypocritical and power-hungry puppeteers, the CBCP.

        Judging from your reply, intelligent readers would more or less deduce who is lacking in mental abilities. By the way, it is poor form to demean people with developmental abilities – e.g. those with Down’s Syndrome (mongoloid to you).

  • speaksoftlylove

    “Welcomed the filing of the suit… but bellittled the arguments….” – another oxymoron. Will this Prevaricator-in-Chief just zip it for once and leave the Supreme Court to decide? After all, another prevaricator in chief is heading the SC ,so they should not worry any bit.

  • ano ikaw

     What alternative does CBCP have to minimize overpopulation? Oh yeah, these bishops and priests live in comfortable lifestyle and luxury. They eat /live freely while the poor are languishing in the streets with lack of food/shelter and education, and their population is growing.

    CBCP if you don’t have a workable solution to curtail poverty, support gender equality, protection of women and unborn children etc, then put and shut up.

  • WAJ

    I think the RH Bill that was recently passed and signed by the President does not have a mandatory concepts/restriction in regards to the implementation of the law. The people (women), still have the right to choose as to whether to use the contraceptive or not and that’s constitute to the constitutionality of the bill.

    • Jane Tan

      Maybe it is only right that the majority of the Filipinos become maids and caregivers, we all know how much they want their freedom to be taken away from them. Give them a choice and they see it as a dictatorship lol.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_POBZSV5PGTGUS3YA2KR2NZI3HA Alex

    CBCP will never change their stand on RH so no scientific explanation would make them change their view. It’s like convincing your father to get circumcised.

      Nothing is also written in the bible, that prohibits husband and wife from planning the size of their family.
      Nothing is also written in the bible, that says if you have many children you will become prosperous.

      • speaksoftlylove

        Of course, there is. You are just and ignoramus fooling everybody that you read the Bible. You are a clueless robot of the powers that be! If you have read it, you did not comprehend anything. Read the Old Testament aloud so that you can hear what you read. Read the story of Moses and what he told the Hebrews when they went back to Canaan (Palestine) and  ultimately renamed it Israel.

      Wala rin naman po sa Bibliya na kung mag-anak ng isang dosena ang mag-asawang kumikita ng isang daan isang araw ay magiging milyonaryo sila, di ba? May mga bagay na hindi na kailangang isangguni sa Bibliya – gamitin lang ang utak na binigay ng Diyos. Hindi po haka-haka na kailangang mag-plano ng pamilya. Praktikal po na mag-anak ka lamang ng kaya mong pag-aralin, pakainin, damitan, at arugain. Mas Kristiyano po iyon kesa mag-anak lang ng mag-anak na hindi iniisip ang kahihinatnan at kinabukasan ng mga bata.

        Well the bible also doesn’t know that the earth is a spheroid and that  it revolves around the sun.

      • simondj

         I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. basahin mo po ang Luke 17:34-36,,, sa rapture, (day of the Lord) gabi sa kabilang mundo, araw naman sa kabila.

      • tamumd

        Hahahaha I dunno about you..but those verses do not talk about the earth being spheroid and revolves around the sun….one bit!

      • simondj

        Bible says in Job 26:7 — “[God] hangeth the earth on nothing.” What a remarkable statement of fact. The earth is suspended in space. Nothing is holding it up.  The prophet Isaiah (40:22) spoke of the “circle of the earth.” Solomon wrote, “He [God] set a compass [circle] upon the face of the deep.” Proverbs 8:27.  In addition, 3,000 years ago the Judeo-Christian Bible spoke of the valleys and mountains of the sea. In Psalm 18:15 (NIV) David wrote of God being the creator of “the valleys of the sea.” God asked Job (38:16 NIV): “Have you walked in the recesses [valleys] of the sea?” The prophet Jonah was thrown off a ship and spoke of falling to the bottom of the mountains in the sea (Jonah 2:6).

      • tamumd

        If your god or the prophet who wrote your holy book could only come up with some poetic suggestion of how the earth and the whole universe work..I don’t think he is a god at all.An all knowing god would know the specific words and terms to describe what future civilization would call them. lol There’s nothing remarkable about that statement.  Sounds like a statement of a palm reader. Again all those verses you cited..not one mentioned a spheroid earth and that the planets revolve around the sun. A “circle” as you probably know is not a sphere. A sphere has a volume whereas a circle is flat and only has a perimeter and area.

      • simondj

        Eclessiastic 9:5  For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. try to argue this one if you do not believe in the bible.

      • tamumd

        Hahahahaha..fortunately I agree with this statement. I and you know that we’re going to die eventually. As the saying goes…”the only sure thing in life is death”. And I know the dead…really don’t know anything coz they’re…plainly dead! lol So I guess the writer of Ecclessiastis doesn’t believe in life after death too. lol I totally agree with him 100%. Still doesn’t talk about spheroid earth and that the earth and other planets revolve around the sun.

      • simondj

        Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment

      • tamumd

        Really? What is your compelling evidence that every person would be judged after each of us die? Or you’re just basing that from your fairytale book?

        ‘He stretches out the north over empty space, and hangs the earth on nothing” Job 26:7.

    ” Sotto,…  concern was still that it was imposed on Filipinos by foreign powers to influence or regulate the Philippine population.”

    Imposed or not imposed- we have to accept it, our population had gone way ahead not proportional to our resources. Unemployment is increasing  because of the rapid increasing population – let’s face the fact, unemployment is a worldwide problem. Our agricultural products are no longer enough to sustain our increasing population- we import rice. More and more are becoming illegal settlers- soon our country would become the SQUATTER COLONY of the world. More and more street children roam the streets. More and more are getting hungry. Our country could no longer sustain our growing population. 

    Sotto, GET REA!. We always asked for assistance in other countries whenever calamities hit us.

    • Hfxwst

      Silly reasons – why would foreign countries care about the Filipino population.  Those foreign countries want cheap maids and cruise ship workers –  Sotto is full of crap.

      RH Law should have banned 2nd and 3rd families for Senators and Congressmen and hidden partners of Bishops. – that also would reduce the population.

    nobody asked me, but….to those who would not follow the concepts of “responsible parenthood” aka family planning, i say “go ahead with all their heart contents”.  but in the near future and for the sake of good debate,  please do not use my and my fellow juan dela cruz taxes to subsidies the medical and other health services, food subsistence (as in CCT) and other govt. (as in “gratis”)  services to help those who has too many to take care and feed.  (t)hey all should go to “imbongs” and CBCP for help.

    as long as the “imbongs” are not infringing my individual right to practice “responsible parenthood” (aka family planning)  as afforded to me and is prescribe in the “law of the land”, and it would not make an iota of difference and any concern to my right, the”imbongs” can go ahead with their frivolous lawsuit.

    let the “imbongs” have their day in court to see for themselves the constitutionality of the RH law.

    Ang totoo ay kailangan-kailangan natin ang RH Bill. Dahil sobra-sobra na ang ating populasyon. Kahit sa pagaaral ng UN ay kailangan daw pigilan natin ang mabilis na paglago ng ating populasyon kung gusto natin mabilis na malalabanan ang kahirapan… Sa ating lungsod ng Maynila ay napakarami na talaga ng mga tao. Kaya ang basura ang pangunahing problema sadyang  wala ng malaking bakanteng lote. Dapat sana ay maraming malagong mga halamanan para makabawas ng init ng panahon… Mahirap ding linisin ang Ilog Pasig kasi yung mga nakatira sa tabing ilog ay sa ilog na rin itinatapon ang kanilang dumi,  pati dumi ng tao… Maging sa mga sementeryo ay magkasama ng nakatira ang mga buhay at patay… Kung ayaw ng mga taga simbahan gumamit ng contraceptives ay huwag na lang silang gumamit. Kaya pala marami sa kanila ang may anak sa pagkapari.

    • simondj

        ” ang kaharian ay bumabagsak dahil sa corruption at wickedness” hit your target my dear simondj. Dahil nga corrupt ang nagpapatakbo ng banal na iglesia katoliko kaya bumabagsak at isama mo pa ang pagiging wicked. The elected president of this republic ay ginagawang lahat ang maraming bagay upang itaas ang antas ng pamumuhay ng bawat mahirap na mamamayan, Now, kung hindi natin siya tutulungan at laging nega ang ating isipan at hangang langit ang galit saan kaya ang pupuntahan. I did not say na walang corrupt sa gogyerno but marami na ang mabubuti kaysa sa masasama.

      • rayingga

        Kaibigan ang tanong mo ay paano aasenso ang Pilipinas dahil sa kakaunti ang magiging anak… Tunay na buhay, we are 13 in the family kasama si tatay at nanay. Kahit anong pagsisikap ng aking mga magulang ay di magawa na kaming lahat ay makapag-aral. Sa tulong at awa ng Dios na buhay ay nakatapos naman kami ng H-school dahil na rin sa aming sariling sikap. Ako madaling araw pa lang ay gising at naglalako ng pandesal sa aming baryo (1979) yung kita na kakarampot ay ibinibili ko ng kape at biskutso ( hard bread ) para almusal ng aking mga maliliit na kapatid. Si tatay at nanay ay nasa bukid nkikisaka lamang.Napakahirap ng aming pinagdaanan dahil bukod sa kami ay mahirap ay 11 pa kaming magkakapatid na di malaman kung paano na ang bukas. Kung may magkasakit di alam ang gagawin dahil walang pera para sa doctor at gamot, namatay ang isa kung kapatid na babae sa kamay ng albularyo di man lang nakaamoy ng gamot wala talagang pera.Salamat sa Dios na buhay at ako ay isinilang pero kaming mga mahihirap ay mga tao rin na dapat ay may dangal, dahil ang Dios ay marangal.Madali ko bang natanggap ang RH law na yan? Hindi dahil labag sa aking paniniwala, subalit dapat nating harapin ang katotohanan ng buhay na ang pamilya ay dapat na nakaplano ayon sa ating kakayahan.Now, sa aking takot sa bukas, nagkaroon kami ng 3 anak at sa tulong muli ng Dios nakapagtapos sila ng kolehiyo at may mga magagandang trabaho na sa Maynila… From here isipin mo kung paano uunlad ang bansa kung kayang pakainin , bihisan, papag-aralin at mahalin ang bawat kaluluwang nasa iyong pangangalaga

        okay na,, dahil sa sinabi mo na,, sa tulong o awa ng Diyos, iyan lang ang hinahanap ko diyan. bakit? okay 10 kami na magkakapatid edad na 59 to 41 ngayon, taong 1970 to 73 naranasan din namin na walang makain, kaya alam ko iyan, nadanasan namin iyan, pero ngayon dahil sa tulong ng Diyos asenso kami lahat, righteousness lang ang turo sa amin ng aming magulang.

    Tito Sotto is one big conspiracy theorist. On the other hand, if it were true, I guess they have a point, after all RP keeps on asking for foreign aid and borrowing money from rich countries. It would be interesting for Tito Sotto to know what Vic Sotto does – the fact that he changes women like he changes clothes, somehow, you do not see so many Vic Sotto Jrs. going around.

    Overpopulation or increase of population as others would assert, is not a problem  local to us…
    we have to be above and out of the box to really get a grasp of this problem…

    “If we are honest there is only one root cause of the disaster facing the planet, and that is the appalling rate at which our human species has increased its population in recent centuries. … Who is to blame for the crisis we face? First and foremost, I accuse the religious leaders of the world. They have fed mankind with the dangerous myth that humanity is somehow above nature and that it is our god-given right to hold dominion over the Earth and subdue it. In many cases, they have actively encouraged over-population and have gone out of their way to prevent family-planning schemes. They are a disgrace. Secondly, I accuse political leaders, almost all of whom follow a policy of national growth, regardless of the consequences. … But we are not designed as a high-quantity species. We are a high-quality species, and all our social thinking should be directed to this thought” (Porritt R550).

    now to avoid plagiaristic attacks …this qoute is not mine…comes from a guy named desmond morris…

    “We’re now faced with this divisive, immoral law because of our
    collectivist culture and collective belief that the government should
    take care of us and pay for our basic services from womb to tomb. The
    law is immoral not because it’s against the Christian religion but
    because it negates individual rights! This is why the proper concept of
    rights is at stake here, as we currently have lawmakers and politicians
    who naively believe that rights are contradictory and cannibalistic.

    Nilikha ng Diyos ang tao ayon sa kanyang wangis at binigyan niya ng talino upang malaman ang mali sa tama. Simple lang naman kung hindi kaya ng sweldo ang maganak ng tatlo o higit pa ay bakit ka magaanak pa. Dahil hindi gugustuhin ng Diyos na maganak ka ng sobra pagkatapos ay hindi mo naman mabibigyan ng desenteng buhay. Kaya ka nga binigyan ng talino ng Diyos… Ang paggamit ng contraceptives ay hindi matatawag na abortion. Bakit? kasi ang punlay ng tao ay nasa porma pa lamang liquid at hindi pa nagsasama ang punlay ng babae at lalaki. At lalong wala pa sa porma ng solid tulad nag fetus para sabihin ang contaceptives ay pang-abortion… Ang totoo ang malaking kasalanan sa Diyos ay maganak ka ng hindi mo kayang palakihin ng tama kaya laging nasa kalye hindi nagaaral at paglaki ay kaaway ng lipunan at batas… Ang dapat ituro ng simbahan ay paano maililigtas ng tao ang kanyang kaluluwa sa paggawa ng kasalanan para mapunta sa langit at huwag na siyang makialam sa pulitika lalo na sa takbo ng gobyerno. Kaya nga maraming katoliko ang naliligaw ng landas dahil kulang ang pangangaral ng simbahan, kasi pakikialam sa pulitika ang mas inuuna… Hindi nila kaibigan si Pnoy kasi hindi na sila makadelihensiya ng SUV…

    some thoughts about population control:

    1. reduced size isn’t the same as prosperous;
    2. less quantity isn’t the same as better quality;
    3. a good population is healthy population, educated population, sustainable population, stable population and manageable population.

        RH law isn’t enough.

        1. what is the nation’s potential for grow, at what rate ?
        2. what population can the nation support ?
        3. how is the wealth distributed ?
        4. what is a good population model for the nation (size, age, sex, education, job…) ?
        5. changes are needed, but are they acceptable to the population ?
        6. what scientific methods are available ?
        etc..

        RH law isn’t enough. That’s true. Does that mean a that if any single law is not enough to address a huge problem, just a part of it, we shouldn’t enact said-law?

    “A secular state is a concept of secularism, whereby a state or country purports to be officially neutral in matters of religion, supporting neither religion nor irreligion.[1] A secular state also claims to treat all its citizens equally regardless of religion, and claims to avoid preferential treatment for a citizen from a particular religion/nonreligion over other religions/nonreligion. Secular states do not have a state religion or equivalent, although the absence of a state religion does not guarantee that a state is secular.”

    Ang Pilipinas ay isang SECULAR state(country).

    Mga argumento base o hango sa anoman RELIGION ay hindi dapat bigyan ng halaga o pabor.

    I don’t understand. All these people who are against RH bill are well to do, have few children, have access to reproductive health services & proper education about family planning which are all the main services under the RH bill & they don’t want to share this to the under privilege? Just wondering. They have few children because they practiced family planning & not because they have less sex than the poor but still have the nerve to teach/impose their so called take about morality. My question is, if they are doing it (they can afford), then why prevent the people who could not? Disgusting.

    May kinalaman ba ang CBCP sa petition o wala?

    Ayon kay Fr Melvin, “only incidental” lang daw na ang petitioner ay anak ng CBCP legal counsel, na siya ring “collaborating counsel” sa kaso.

    Di ba kailan lang, nagbanta pa ang CBCP na dadalhin nila ang laban sa Korte Suprema.  Tapos ngayon naghuhugas na agad ng kamay?

    Kung ang petitioner ay anak ng CBCP Legal Counsel na siya ring “collaborating counsel”,  maliwanag na hindi hands-off ang CBCP kundi hands-on!

    Masama na ang magsinungaling pero mas masahol ang maging ipokrito lalo na kung naka abito.

    Di nga ba nasusulat sa GENESIS na bagama’t napakalaki ng mundo at wala pang tao, ang nilikha ay ISANG lalaki at ISANG babae lang? Anong leksiyon ang itinuturo ng creation, responsible or irresponsible parenthood?

      “May kinalaman ba ang CBCP sa petition o wala?”

      Technically hindi nila aamin na nakikialam sila dahil sila ay pinuno ng isang religion.

      Ang PILIPINAS ay SECULAR state(country).

      Ano man argumento o petition laban sa RH law na galing sa alin man religion ay automatically na ibabasura ng SC.

      Dahil dito hindi masasabi ng mga petitioner na ang MORAL na ipinaglalaban ay MORAL ng KATOLIKO.

    Overpopulation or increase of population as others would assert, is not a problem  local to us…
    we have to be above and out of the box to really get a grasp of this problem…

    “If we are honest there is only one root cause of the disaster facing the planet, and that is the appalling rate at which our human species has increased its population in recent centuries. … Who is to blame for the crisis we face?

    First and foremost, I accuse the religious leaders of the world.

    They have fed mankind with the dangerous myth that humanity is somehow above nature and that it is our god-given right to hold dominion over the Earth and subdue it.

    In many cases, they have actively encouraged over-population and have gone out of their way to prevent family-planning schemes.
    They are a disgrace.
    Secondly, I accuse political leaders, almost all of whom follow a policy of national growth, regardless of the consequences. … But we are not designed as a high-quantity species. We are a high-quality species, and all our social thinking should be directed to this thought” (Porritt R550).

    Magandang example iyan si Rep Kaka Bag-ao, isa sa mga PRINCIPAL AUTHOR ng RH.  AKBAYAN sya, ginawang caretaker ng DINAGAT ISLAND at sa kanya ni release ang pork barrel LAST MONTH.  Sa May 2013 doon sya tatakbo sa Dinagat Island as LP CANDIDATE for Congress.  TAMA ang sinabi ni Bishop Gabriel Reyes LAST MONTH, pinagalaw ng Malacanang ang PORK BARREL para ma influence ang mga Kongresista.  Bakit nandoon si Secretary Abad and Roxas sa House gallery during the voting?  Para manood LANG?

Even only 5 out of 77 Congressmen will come out publicly and accuse the President of blackmailing will prove your claim on the pork barrel. But. alas, only our readers supporting ANTI and the CBCP are crying about the Pork Barrel and not the Congressmen who should have a first hand knowledge on Pnoy’s threat to use the pork barrel.

        There are OPPOSITION congressmen who until now have not received their pork barrel.  Do you know this?

Just plain gossip and the TRUTH HURTS when it is proven that you are just gossip mongering.

In this case, you have to present your proof so your claim could become convincing. TRUTH HURTS right?

      Cost of one condom is 10 pesos
      Cost to feed and educate one child from grade 1 to high school 1 million pesos

      Only Fools cannot see the difference.

      Revenue for the clerical class of one member of the church throughout their lifetime is 100 pesos x 50 weeks x 60 years = 300,000 pesos

      Look at the math

        Do you have children?  Did you also CALCULATE the cost of having them before you bore them?

        How about the COST of having a wife?  Did you also compute before you took a wife?

        Do you have a car?  Most cars EXCEED 1 MILLION nowadays – MORE EXPENSIVE than feeding and educating a child.  And after 10 years, the car starts to ROT.  Why then do people buy cars?

        There are COUNTLESS, USELESS WAYS to spend 1 Million in our lifetime from VICES to LUXURIES.  Why are so people so complaining in spending it on a child while so excited on vices and luxuries?  Why?

        And going back to condom…. an underwear is MORE EXPENSIVE than condom.  If I follow your logic, shall we now use condom instead?

    They should welcome this constitutional move. The RH bill goes against the tenets of Catholicism   and thus undermines this particular religion. It is like enforcing some believers to eat pork on the basis of health and progress; in the same token, the RH bill openly espouses the use of condoms etc, on the basis of reproductive health. Moreover, this bill was passed with the use of coercion and pork barrel and coming from a president who is deemed to be a Catholic.    

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/PPY3MIH6BDML3DUEKLBV7OEHYU Bing

       have you read the law? the law opens options and educates the masses. it DOES NOT IMPOSE. if true Catholics want to pursue rhythm method, then it is their choice. but if some Catholics would DECIDE to pursue contraception, it is their choice. belief and faith are personal. let us not educate our masses and allow them to make their own decisions dictated by their conscience and faith.

      the Philippines is not composed of Catholics alone. in addition, the last time i checked, more Catholics support the RH bill than oppose it.

    The CBCP is setting a bad example to its flock and the Filipino citizens. For CBCP, it is okay to lie in order to push their interest. Very obvious these couple are closely associated to CBCP. Nothing harm for CBCP to admit the truth that they are behind the petition but since they are not allowed to directly file as they are non taxable entity that they have to resort to proxy.

      If he gets voted back…, it just show the quality of the Filipino voters.

      The early Americans thought it wise to form an “Electoral College” in their National Elections because they believed the individual voters at that time to be intelligently unprepared.
      Note: the “Electoral Form” has also other advantages. 
      Foremost is that: No Region or State would have more representations in the Senate at the detriment of the others, who will have none.

      Metro-Manila (Imperial-Manila to many) Region and surrounding Regions/Provinces have more than their share of Senators

    ang INDIA at CHINA.. malakas at 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 direct violation to our PATRIMONY( our genes/race is our patrimony and should be conserved & devoloped not to weaken & eventually destroyed ) and to POSTERITY ( future generations) & unbridled INDEPENDENCE aspirations of our country & people.. we all know that this DEPOPULATION & POPULATION control system is brought to our people & country on the behest imposition by FOREIGN INTEREST( imf-wb, multi-national corps, imperialist countries etc acting in unison )….
    ” We, the sovereign Filipino people, imploring the aid of Almighty God, in order to build a just and HUMANE society, and establish a Government that shall embody our ideals and aspirations, promote the common good, CONSERVE & DEVELOP our PATRIMONY, and secure to ourselves and OUR POSTERITY, the blessings of INDEPENDENCE and democracy under the rule of law and a regime of truth, justice, freedom, love, equality, and peace, do ordain and promulgate this Constitution.”

    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……”SEC. 15. Certificate of Compliance. – No marriage license shall be issued by the Local Civil Registrar unless the applicants present a Certificate of Compliance…. . excessive requirement..the family code states that LICENSE to marry can be WAIVED & exempted..like in the cases provided in Articles 27, 28, 31, 32 and 34 of the Family Code of the Philippines, …. the same with wealth of jurisprudence… it runs counter to declared policy of RH law itself..about strenghtening of family… 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 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.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 which leads to DEPRIVATION 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 of the FILIPINO RACE …which is a SINE QUANON requirement of a going concern,continuing & immortal 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 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 & IMMORTALITY of the STATE doctrines……..condolence RH….. : > )

    Keep all Filipinos poor, uneducated and living in slums.  It provides cheap labor for those in power.  Education ruins this.  

  • jikanhinia123

    This is just the tip of the iceberg to showcase the fact that Aquino through the RH law had divided the Filipino people and this isn’t the last of the many problems it shall bring forth. Pnoy had been warned erlier about this chaotic comeupponce nonetheless he sealed the nation’s fate by signing the law.

    This severance of ties between the Antis and th government is totally blamed to Aquino for not using the solomonic wisdom in the resolution of the conflict that arose from the RH law.

    We, believers of God will never support any government that defies God’s words and do all means available to protect it from blasphemy as what Aquino and the rest had done. 

    To us believers, the RH law is an evil law invented by the devil’s hands to defy God’s words. Go forth, multiply and fill the earth. As we always had maintained the RH law has a good intent to help a needed family but the method it uses by using condoms, pills and etc are abortifacients that supplants the teachings in the Bible

      Solomonic? what the he ll are you talking about?  time and again, the rh bill authors and their supporters have publicly (and as far as I know, privately) seek a middle ground with the cbcp. and time and again, the stance of the cbcp was “rh is evil” and has used the pulpit as a means to threaten people who disagree with the bishops. 

      no, the cbcp’s stand was “no compromise” all along. and your stand is the same.

      so don’t cry “solominic” because you sound soooo much like a hypocrite.  lol…..

      By what “devilish  wisdom” give you the power to predict “a dark future for the Phil.” ..?

      & who gave the “warning” about “this chaotic comeupponce” (btw its “comeuppAnce”)..?
      When they themselves usually shove their problems 
      “under the rug” instead of solving them.

      It is more the duty of the religious and the clergy to approach the conflict/controversy with
      “Solomonic Wisdom” rather than the Aquino Adm, who must be “in the thick of the fray”.

      Where does it say that the RH “defies God’s words”…?
      Isn’t  this more an interpretation of the clergy, with mostly their “Hurt PRIDE” behind it.?
      And when did “Aquino and the rest” do any Blasphemy…?

      If what you quote in Genesis is still God’s Law up to the present…., 
      WHY didn’t Jesus “RE-CONFIRM” it like what He did with 
      the TEN COMMANDMENTS & the REST/Many…, in the NEW TESTAMENT…?.?.?
      (Note: Forbidden Foods in the Old Testament were no longer forbidden in the New Test’t.!)

    RH Bill is not the complete formula for economic problem of the Philippines, but it will help to educate millions of couple who don’t have the clue what is responsible parenthood. Lunatics are those people saying billion-mark population of India and China made them economic powers, political will yes, maybe. kinakamkam na ng Tsina  ang West Philippine sea ubos na ang kanilang land area sa dami ng population. Then, who likes to live in India? You must be kidding.
       God’s said; multiply and fill the earth, that was when the world was young and  Adam and Eve were the only world population. God gave us the ability to think and act what’s good for us and to our fellow-men. To CBCP-IPISKUPAL :  RHBill is already a law, give the Filipino people a break. Support or empower instead the Anti-paedophile and sexual abuses laws against your colleagues.

    PH is very comparable to India, in terms of population density.

    -Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they aren’t prepared for the answer.

    In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know me?’ She responded, ‘Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I’ve known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you’ve been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you’re a big shot when you haven’t the brains to realize you’ll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.’

    The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?’

    She again replied, ‘Why yes, I do. I’ve known Mr. Bradley since he was a
    youngster, too. He’s lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can’t build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.’

    The defense attorney nearly died.

    The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said,

    ‘If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I’ll send you both to the electric chair.’

    3) TRUE or FALSE: R.H. Law REQURIES all pregnant women to submit themselves for abortion to impede population growth

    what they did during and after:
    1. the case of Joan of Arc.., where the Lass was convicted and executed on orders of the Bishops and later declared a Saint, by the Holy See…, 800 years later;

    2. the case of Marco Polo…, where the powerful clergy put him jail for spreading lies about his journey, about the route he took which appeared contrary to the teachings and beliefs of the bishops. 
    Pope John-Paul 2 later apologized for the mistake the clergy made…, some 600yrs, later.

    3. The Crusades…,
    4. The Inquisition…, & Many More.
    All of which, the Beloved & Blessed Pope John-Paul-2 also apologized for the errors & mistakes.

    The Bishops, Clergy & Priest & Lay-Leaders were also citing the Holy Scriptures as their Shield in Truth in the cases above.

    The text of the RH law lacks sufficient legal guarantees to protect the health of Filipino men, women, and children from medical malpractice and unsafe or substandard pharmaceutical products. Scientific American reported: “Recent research suggests that the contraceptive pill—which prevents women from ovulating by fooling their body into believing it is pregnant—could affect which types of men women desire… Women who start or stop taking the pill, then, may be in for some relationship problems.”1 Science Direct reported: “Naturally cycling women exhibited enhanced memory of story details, but not of central information (gist), in the emotional compared with neutral story conditions. In contrast, women using hormonal contraception exhibited enhanced memory of gist, but not story details, in the emotional compared with neutral story conditions. Analysis of eye movements made while watching the stories indicated that the differences in memory could not be attributed either to a differential attention focus or to the degree of arousal induced by the stories in the two groups. These findings suggest that the use of hormonal contraception alters memory for an emotional event, perhaps by altering sex/stress hormone interactions in memory formation.”2

    For You To Know:

    Ignatius of Antioch (also known as Theophorus) (c.35-110) was the third bishop or Patriarch of Antioch and a student of the Apostle John. En route to his martyrdom in Rome, Ignatius wrote a series of letters which have been preserved. Important topics addressed in these letters include ecclesiology, the sacraments, the role of bishops, and Biblical Sabbath. He is the second after Clement to mention Paul’s epistles.

    He is also responsible for the first known use of the Greek word katholikos (καθολικός), meaning “universal”, “complete” and “whole” to describe the church, writing:
    Wherever the bishop appears, there let the people be; as wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church. It is not lawful to baptize or give communion without the consent of the bishop. On the other hand, whatever has his approval is pleasing to God. Thus, whatever is done will be safe and valid. — Letter to the Smyrnaeans 8, J.R. Willis translation.He stressed the value of the Eucharist, calling it a “medicine of immortality” (Ignatius to the Ephesians 20:2). The very strong desire for bloody martyrdom in the arena, which Ignatius expresses rather graphically in places, may seem quite odd to the modern reader. An examination of his theology of soteriology shows that he regarded salvation as one being free from the powerful fear of death and thus to bravely face martyrdom. Ignatius is claimed to be the first known Christian writer to argue in favor of Christianity’s replacement of the Sabbath with the Lord’s Day:Be not seduced by strange doctrines nor by antiquated fables, which are profitless. For if even unto this day we live after the manner of Judaism, we avow that we have not received grace…. If then those who had walked in ancient practices attained unto newness of hope, no longer observing Sabbaths but fashioning their lives after the Lord’s day, on which our life also arose through Him and through His death which some men deny … how shall we be able to live apart from Him? … It is monstrous to talk of Jesus Christ and to practise Judaism. For Christianity did not believe in Judaism, but Judaism in Christianity — Ignatius to the Magnesians 8:1, 9:1-2, 10:3,Lightfoot translation.

    For You To Know:

    Irenaeus of Lyons (2nd century – c. 202 CE)

    Irenaeus was bishop of Lugdunum in Gaul, which is now Lyon(s), France. His writings were formative in the early development of Christian theology, and he is recognized as a saint by both the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church. He was a notable early Christian apologist. He was also a disciple of Polycarp.

    His best-known book, Against Heresies (c.180) enumerated heresies and attacked them. Irenaeus wrote that the only way for Christians to retain unity was to humbly accept one doctrinal authority—episcopal councils. Irenaeus proposed that the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John all be accepted as canonical.

    For You To Know:

    Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus (c.160–c.225), who was converted to Christianity before 197, was a prolific writer of apologetic, theological, controversial and ascetic works. He was the son of a Roman centurion. He was born in Carthage.

    Tertullian denounced Christian doctrines he considered heretical but later in life adopted views that themselves came to be regarded as heretical. He wrote three books in Greek and was the first great writer of Latin Christianity, thus sometimes known as the “Father of the Latin Church”. He was evidently a lawyer in Rome. He is said to have introduced the Latin term “trinitas” with regard to the Divine (Trinity) to the Christian vocabulary (but Theophilus of Antioch already wrote of “the Trinity, of God, and His Word, and His wisdom”, which is similar but not identical to the Trinitarian wording), and also probably the formula “three Persons, one Substance” as the Latin “tres Personae, una Substantia” (itself from the Koine Greek “τρεῖς ὑποστάσεις, ὁμοούσιος; treis Hypostases, Homoousios”), and also the terms “vetus testamentum” (Old Testament) and “novum testamentum” (New Testament).

    In his Apologeticus, he was the first Latin author who qualified Christianity as the “vera religio”, and systematically relegated the classical Roman Empire religion and other accepted cults to the position of mere “superstitions”.

    Later in life, Tertullian joined the Montanists, a heretical sect that appealed to his rigorism. He used the early church’s symbol for fish — the Greek word for “fish” being ΙΧΘΥΣ which is an acronym for “Ἰησοῦς Χριστός, Θεοῦ Υἱός, Σωτήρ” (Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Saviour) — to explain the meaning of Baptism since fish are born in water. He wrote that human beings are like little fish.

      This reply is  actually to directed to ‘ mxscixmxn ‘ , not Mark. Sorry Mark.

       This is not the place to discuss religious dogmas, Bible teachings and Church histories. Please discuss these in the Churches, Seminary schools and/or Vatican conferences. Not here.  Be respectful of other people forums wherein lawyers don’t discuss the intricacies of laws, doctors don’t discuss medical cures and human diseases, and scientists and engineers don’t discuss the latest technological inventions. Just as Jesus has said  ” Give to Caesar what Caesar is due, and give to God what God is due.” 

      If CBCP and and it’s Bishops are really serious in helping the poor and their unwanted children ( about 1.7 million children of unplanned pregnancies in PH as reported by the UN ), CBCP and it’s Bishops should start distributing the stock dividends of their huge stock holdings of San Miguel Corp. and Bank of the Philippine Islands, worth millions and millions of pesos ( as reported by a blogger in another Inquirer article ) to feed, clothe and educate these unwanted children and their poor families now and in the future.

       Or else they should shut up in regards to the RH law, and stop the financing of lawyers, or groups of people to oppose the implementation of the RH law, which is really getting close to a violation of the  ‘ Separation of Church and State ‘ provision of the 1987 Philippine Constitution.

    For You To Know:

    Pope Saint Linus (died c. 76) was, according to several early sources, Bishop of the Diocese of Romeafter Saint Peter. This would make Linus the second Pope. According to other early sources Pope Clement I was the Pope after Peter. Linus is the only person specifically mentioned in the New Testament, other than Peter, considered by the Catholic Church to have held the position of Pope.

    The earliest witness is Irenaeus, who in about the year 180 wrote: “The blessed apostles, then, having founded and built up the Church, committed into the hands of Linus the office of the episcopate.” TheOxford Dictionary of Popes interprets Irenaeus as saying that Linus was the first bishop of Rome. Linus is presented by Jerome as “the first after Peter to be in charge of the Roman Church”, byEusebius, as “the first to receive the episcopate of the church at Rome, after the martyrdom of Paul and Peter” John Chrysostom says “This Linus, some say, was second Bishop of the Church of Rome after Peter”, while the Liberian Catalogue presents Peter as the first Bishop of Rome and Linus as his successor in the same office. The Liber Pontificalis also presents a list that makes Linus the second in the line of bishops of Rome, after Peter; but at the same time it states that Peter ordained two bishops, Linus and Cletus, for the priestly service of the community, devoting himself instead to prayer and preaching, and that it was to Clement that he entrusted the Church as a whole, appointing him as his successor. Tertullian too makes Clement the successor of Peter. And while, in another of his works, Jerome gives Clement as “the fourth bishop of Rome after Peter” (i.e., fourth in a series that included Peter), he adds that “most of the Latins think that Clement was second after the apostle.”

    The Apostolic Constitutions says that Linus was the first bishop of Rome and was ordained by Paul, and that he was succeeded by Clement, who was ordained by Peter. Cletus is given as Linus’s successor by Irenaeus and the others cited above who present Linus either as the first bishop of Rome or, if they give Peter as the first, as the second.

      christianity was a new kid in town during the time rome was at its finest…and judaism had been rolling for at least 2 millennia before this so called christians appeared…

      and undoubtedly, jews and that includes , probably the Christ, is not only a follower of Judaism but a zealot who saw some rotting business in their rigid religious laws.

    The fast-growing economy of the Philippines is being driven by its youthful population. Instead of being a detriment or a burden, the population growth of the Philippines is boosting the economy. Economies of scale, more efficient management of resources, and technological advances are helping lift the economy. Even top CEOs are bullish on the Philippines. In Time magazine, the Philippines is being advertised as a “New Asian Tiger.” Women and children will be the biggest beneficiaries of a more inclusive economic growth. It took Britain about 150 years to double GDP per capita, the US about 50 years, and Japan about 30 years. It is taking China and India about 20 years to double GDP per capita. The Philippines, with its fast-growing economy, is on its way to double GDP per capita in about the same period as China and India. The Philippines actually has a favorable demographic profile. Implementation of the RH law will have detrimental demographic consequences and increase the costs of healthcare for young workers, the elderly, and the general population. Countries with an aging population and population imbalance face the possibility of economic decline. Many countries are reversing their population control programs. The passage of the RH bill is a step backward for the Philippines. The RH law is against inclusive economic growth. The pro-RH special interest groups are the modern-day false prophets and profiteers of doom and gloom.

      You’re talking about the people who have the money to spend on birth control and condoms and family planning. Tell me, the fisherman who earns 100 pesos a day, is he a part of that tiger economy? The squatters, are they the ones building that tiger economy? What’s your plan for them? They’re the ones who need the RH Bill the most, since they’re the ones with the least access.

      The income gap in the country is still huge, with many families below the poverty line. They need the RH Bill. The people above the poverty line who are spurring growth, obviously they don’t require it. Do you mean to say we should sacrifice the needs of the poor because other people are doing well?

  • denky31

    Even if the suit filed by the lawyer couples fails in its objective but the fact remains to attest and advertise to Aquino that the nation had been abruptly divided when he signed into law the RH Bill despite the vigorous dissension of the believers or the true Christians.

    President Aquino if one sees from a vantage point is a queer guy maybe an alien as a metaphor of distinction for it’s only now that he came out of view to be seen with two legs, two balls, two hands, two eyes but weirdo, imagine two heads. Why two heads? Two heads because, one part aspired of unity among Filipinos which is admirable like what he did to invite the MILF to lay down their arms and be partners in nation building but it’s now horrific to note that he is instrumental to the division of the Filipino on his other head when he signed into law the RH bill to divide the people. Isn’t that not queer? You call for unity but forcibly dichotomized the Filipino People in another process.

    President Aquino may have the best of intentions for our nation but when he fought God via the RH law despite warnings, he was doomed to debacle.

    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;

    The palace is confident of this case going to the SC because the chief justice of the SC who is appointed by Pnoy, has the same way of thinking as Pnoy. Both are mentally unstable

    • joshmale2004

      Not so fast. GMA still has 7 appointed judges that may not favor Pnoy on this one. There are also 3 Senior Judges who were bypassed by Sereno. That makes 10 SC judges who are not in good terms with Pnoy while Pnoy have only 3 or 4 appointed judges. Judging on this scenario, the PRO RH Bill are the ones considered underdogs with this issue at SC. So if these 10 judges will rely on their bitterness against Pnoy, the ANTI RH petitioners could win this one.

  • Mark Philip Wu

    There is no case that the RH Bill is unconstitutional. Everything the RH Bill provides was already legal before it came around. Pills and condoms are readily available to anyone that can pay. All the bill does is increase accessibility. How does providing more access to legal products become unconstitutional?

    • ARIKUTIK

      RH law is unconstitutional. It is empowered with tweaking the morality of 10 years old. A dictatorial form of population control ideology. RH law is population control beyond reasonable doubt. Anti life ideology to be nailed in young minds of 10 years old is uncontitutional. They said it is not forced education. If that is so, why enact a law ? The public school principal and teacher of sex education will force the poor no choice 10 year old pupils to accept sex education under treath. The law forcibly enforced sex education in public schools. That is dictatorial, there is no more freedom to chose morality of God believing humans. The evil of population control ideology is illegaly enforced by RH law.

      • Mark Philip Wu

        And while you blabber on about that, you ignore that the Philippines has the highest rate of teen pregnancy among major SEA countries. Of 1.7 million babies born in 2004, 8% belonged to mothers aged 15-19. Tapos, magrereklamo ka tungkol sa sex education? 

        And bakit, learning sex education has NOTHING to do with morality, individuals are free to choose what and who they believe. Unlike the church, if you don’t believe in it, then you don’t have to

        Overpopulation or increase of population as others would assert, is not a problem  local to us…
        we have to be above and out of the box to really get a grasp of this problem…“If we are honest there is only one root cause of the disaster facing the planet, and that is the appalling rate at which our human species has increased its population in recent centuries. … Who is to blame for the crisis we face?First and foremost, I accuse the religious leaders of the world.They have fed mankind with the dangerous myth that humanity is somehow above nature and that it is our god-given right to hold dominion over the Earth and subdue it.In many cases, they have actively encouraged over-population and have gone out of their way to prevent family-planning schemes.
        They are a disgrace. 
        Secondly, I accuse political leaders, almost all of whom follow a policy of national growth, regardless of the consequences. … But we are not designed as a high-quantity species. We are a high-quality species, and all our social thinking should be directed to this thought” (Porritt R550).now to avoid plagiaristic attacks …this qoute is not mine…comes from a guy named desmond morris…

        The vast uninhabited fertile land of PH needs farmers to plant life giving foods for all. RH law will elimenate farmers who feed the monkeys in the city. Manpower is required to produce bras and underwear for ladies so that they may walk in the streets with out displaying those mind tweaker thingy. Consumers is required so that producdtion may create employment. RH law is unconstitutional for it shackles progress of production. Abnoy’s Sereno is intelligence flunker.

        The Naked Ape? That book caused quite a stir so many years ago! OMG!
        I tend to agree with your views, I think we as humans, blessed with cognitive thought have rather elevated ourselves to a position we know it all and have the answer to all the problems. Putting aside our proclivity to wage war and kill our very own species at the drop of a hat, or a bomb, and not even think about it, does raise a few questions about our sanity. That is just one issue, the other one is as you say this matter of religion, in particular one that encourages uncontrolled breeding and in fact a license to take anything on this earth and use it for our own ends regardless of the consequences. The bounty of planet earth is not limitless, we as a species have committed environmental vandalism on an industrial scale, and we are starting to pay for this, there is a price to be paid.
        All this was born out of arrogance, we have not tamed nature, the world in general cannot even feed itself properly, a basic need. It is equally true that the guilty are the politicians, this organized band we have put together to steer our lives.
        And I agree, we have assumed an idea we, as a species are above all of the balance of Nature, we can gain an upper hand- I don’t think this is true- evidenced by many a natural ‘disaster‘ which is only a disaster for us, it is simply an ’event’ People anthropomorphize nature, they say she is cruel, kind and so many other adjectives- she is nothing of the sort, she indifferent to the sufferings of any species-and that’s all we are -just another one amongst so many that have come and gone, we have given ourselves God, or gods, but at the end of the day it won’t make a dimes worth the difference. .

      • ARIKUTIK

        If nature is indifferent to the sufferings of any species, what gives a corrupt human government the right of genocide through RH law. Typhoons inflicts disaster to cleanse the land so that new growth will sprout. Poor humans exist so that there will be sweating muscled body to till the land producing food for all. Even then the rich and poor had their own share of laughter and God given right to exist and die in appointed time. The greedy wants to decide and take it all for themselves. RH law, genocide is greed of the powerful acting like little gods on earth. Only the true God in heaven who breaths life have the right to decide when a specie should exist. The little gods on earth are but ev*ls to be fought with out surrender. RH law is creation of evil creatures in corrupt government of an Abnoy. A pervert is an evil with out doubt.

        there is no genocide in RH sir, nothing or no one will be killed..

      • ARIKUTIK

        RH law is population control, everybody agrees on that. Even the president had admitted by his own tongue that RH bill is Population control. How would population be controlled with out depriving others to live. Depriving life of others or the targeted poor is genocide inflicted to poor Filipinos. RH law mask as health care remains population control no matter how it is called. RH law is greed of the powerful rich lead by an Abnoy in malacanang.

In others words RH pills is of no use for responsible couples in love of marriage with children to take care. Now the unmarried childless sex curious poor minors will use it including the midnight low fly pigeons who absolute needs it. They are the ones who will suffer with cancer to die alone in misserries. The minors will be inflicted with detroyed ovaries to produce freak babies with weak body and mind. They are poor Filipinos destined to be elliminated by RH pills. RH law is genocide of the poor.

Yang kinatatakutan mong sex ng mga kabataan nangyayari na yan.. maski noong mas conserbatibo pa mga tao sa pilipinas.. eh di mas lalo na ngayon na influenced na ang tayo ng western culture.
        Definitely it’s not genocide of the poor, it’s a way of helping them. But you may have a point that it’s “genocide of the poor” kasi nga baka dahil dito umayos ang buhay nila at di na sila mabilang na poor.. :)

        “RH law is population control, everybody agrees on that“ well for a start, this is not quite true. Or putting it more bluntly, what you said is a load of tripe………. It is not so, if people want to breed like rabbits they still have that choice, of course they can breed, there is no Law that says they cannot. In fact a girl of sixteen can knock out babies at the rate of one every nine months, and what are you going to do with this mess? Let me answer that question, you really don’t even care, it is not your problem is it…….

      • ARIKUTIK

        I have fond memories in every word that comes out of the presidents undisciplined tongue. He blahbered that RH bill is population control. Now, are you saying that the pres. is a lier by claiming that RH law is Not population control ? Let me remind that the pres. is the final signatory of this population control law called by other name. As for caring > I only care about my rights and that includes preventing anyone who dictates how my children will live. I don’t care about others love in sex affairs. With that I expect the government to respect love affairs and how life is to be. If a government stepped in my bedroom and morals of my children then their will be war between us. It my duty not to allow Evil of an Abnoy to reign.    

      • ARIKUTIK

        High quality species was once a policy of Adolf Hitler. He was able to fool multitude of supporters who genocide all those who were considered as inferior. Hitler was defeated along with the idea of high quality species. The earth can not exist with out day and night. The same is true for a society that can only exist with rich and poor. Carl Marx of equality communist ideology was proven wrong and counter productive. The same will be true for RH law ideology, it is counter productive. The rich and poor will remain to live along side each other like a day and night complimenting each other. RH law to inflict cancer to the downtroden and immorality to the poor children is counter productive aside from being unconstitutional.

It’s for better for Abnoy to arm twist Sereno to declare RH law unconstitutional or else the battle will be fought in the streets with out end, untill morals of humanity prevails.

      • ARIKUTIK

        Qoute: “Why worry for others ? we can just let people decide on how they run their lives..” Now you are talking with sense. The government is suppose to be a keeper of peace and Order, enact laws for fair playing feild of competing industries and most of all to jail in corrupt crocodiles. It has no business to decide how people run their lives. RH law is dictatorial law on how people shuold run their lives. It has nothing to do with peace and order or fair playing field of industries. In fact , it is Unfair to entice the poor to practice population control while the rich are exempted. The government has no business in invading the bed of roses much more on the morals of the citizens . RH law sex education is invading the citizens morals. The RH law on how citizens run their lives with forced budget for implementation is dictatorial and most of all it is outside a government mandate.

      • Observer_din

        NO, RH law is not dictating, it’s educating, it will help people decide on how to improve more on their lives, but not imposing on them on what to do, again it’s educating and if they dont want it they will not be forced. This is not only for the poor, but admittedly this will help them a lot. But for rich people they can raise even 80 children because they have money(just look at ramon revilla sr., hehehe).

      • simondj

        why make a law not applicable to all?

    I don’t know where other people here are getting their suspect information and statistics.
    But here are some good information taken from good sources on the relationships of some countries population growth rates, GDP ( the annual total goods and services produced by a country ) , Population, and per capita GDP, which is GDP divided by population ( in which the latter reflects the standard of living of a country ), for the information of both Pro and Anti RH folks : 

    Country            Population Growth Rate(%)     GDP           Population          Per Capita GDP
                  (Year) 2000  2005  2010   2012       ( $ US  )       (2011-2012)                ( $ US )
    Philippines        2.07   1.84   1.93    1.87      412 billion           92.3 million    $      4,214.
    India                 1.58   1.4     1.38    1.31     4.4 trillion         1.2   billion         $      3,693.
    Indonesia          1.63   1.45   1.1      1.04     1.1 trillion            237 million       $      4,666.
    Thailand            0.93   0.87   0.65    0.54       617 billion           66.7 million     $      9,396.
    China                0.9    0.58   0.49     0.48    11.3 trillion         1.35 billion          $     8,382.
    Malaysia           2.01   1.8    1.61     1.54      473 billion            28.3 million      $  16,186.
    South Korea      0.93   0.38  0.26     0.2        1.1 trillion             50 million        $  32,431.
    France              0.38   0.37  0.55     0.5         2.3 trillion            65.3 million     $  35,520. 
     USA                0.91   0.92  0.97     0.9        15 trillion              315 million      $  48,386.
    ( Sources, Pop. growth rates from CIA World Almanac, all other figures from Wikipedia )
    It is interesting to note that China which has the 2nd highest GDP in the world after the USA, has only  about  twice the per capita GDP of PH because of it’s 1.35 billion people. The same is somehow true for India.
    ………It’s up to PH now, to increase it’s GDP tremendously which is quite a tall order, and/or decrease it’s population growth rate with the RH law , if it is to increase it’s per capita GDP, and therefore it’s people’s standard of living.

    • ARIKUTIK

      A decrease of of population growth rate will also slow down the GDP. Although Per Capita GDP seems to increase it does not mean that massive employment in production was created because of the fact that GDP slows down. RH law to decrease population will only reflect good in data sheet but in reality, GDP productivity will slow down. RH law, population control  to result in per capita increase as economic progress IS > FAKE, it does not reflect the true situation of productivity or employment. This was already demontrated by countries who practiced population control for decades of which the GDP had gradually slowed down wrecking havoc to a nations economy.

        YOU ARE RIGHT,,, INFACT IF YOU REMOVED OR LESSEN THE POPULATION BY MEANS OF WAR, DISEASE OR CALAMITY BY GREAT MAGNITUDE, THE CIVILIZATION WILL COLLAPSE.

      • tamumd

        Hahahaha but the RH is neither a calamity, war or disease that does an indiscrimimnate killing. Your analogy is one of hyperbole or a non-sequitur all together.

      • simondj

        did i say they are equal? my contention is,,, if you removed/lessen the population by a great margin the civilization will collapse.

      • tamumd

        You did not say they are equal but you were suggesting that that would happen to us due to RH law. Just name one country in recent memory that perished on the face of the earth due to their RH laws.

      • simondj

        50 years has not yet passed the RH LAW to other country, wait for 50 years and you will see the results. in china the one child policy is only 30 years old, and now they are contemplating to review it, because its manual labor cost was doubled in a matter of 2 yearts.

      • tamumd

        So you could read from your crystal ball that that would happen in 50 years. lol interesting. What happened in China does not apply to us since they did an enforced one-child policy. Our RH law does not impose on anybody who refuse to avail its services or follow it all together. You could have 50 children if you want…no one would put you to prison or penalize you.

      • simondj

        sabi po ng iba,,, NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW,,, optional pala ang RH LAW? i like to think this is inferior law.

      • tamumd

        Call RH law whatever you want. Bottom line is..if you don’t wanna use artificial birth control methods..the government won’t be spying at you and then throw you in prison. Simple as that…it’s about choice.

        Did the civilizations of  Singapore, South Korea, Japan, Germany, or the USA because of  World War II and other wars, disease, or calamity, collapsed in these countries ? Or are these countries thriving because of low populations ?

      • simondj

        have you not read? the korea was divided into two after the war so as germany.

      • artz555

        Mr. Arikutik, the productivity of a country’s population in simple terms is the rate of increase or decrease of output per hour, ( or per day ), per person. In the US, the productivity grows 1- 5 % up or down per quarter which could mean the rate of  increase or decrease of the output in cars built per day, the number products manufactured per hour in a factory, or the number of houses built per month by builders.

        The productivity of the country increases when unemployment is low, and a few persons can produce a lot of products per day, or per month, especially with the use of high technology. Productivity does not occur when the population is high because a lot of people are usually used to produce a product, especially when the government encourages the hiring of people in order to reduce unemployment.

        The GDP ( Gross Domestic Product ) of a country is the total goods and services produced by a country per quarter or per year. GDP is directly related to
        the productivity of a country. The higher the productivity, the higher the GDP of a country, and therefore the higher the per capita ( or per person ) GDP. PH had a 7.1 % increase in GDP last quarter, but the per capita GDP didn’t go up by a lot because of the relatively high population for decades now compared to other countries with low populations.  

        The higher the per capita GDP, the higher the standard of living.of a country.One can prove this by traveling to these countries, ( or as you see these people in these countries on TV or in the movies ),.with highly different per capita GDPs.

        PH can either increase it’s GDP by a lot, and/or reduce it’s population growth rate ( with the RH law ), in order to increase it’s per capita GDP, and therefore the  standard of living of every Filipino. .

      • ARIKUTIK

        PER CAPITA GDP as measure of standard of living ? What are you talking about ! if that is true then there is no more CCT recipient in PH or beggars maybe. Is the wealth of PH equally divided to all citizens ? In PH 90 % of the bounties are eaten by 1 percent rich Taipans of foreign origin posing as Filipinos. The likes of an Abnoy. The remaining wealth of 10 % is divided among employed workers and the rest of the citizens survives on underground economy. Per Capita GDP !, eat your paper calculations. Monkeys knows the mountain view better than accounters. The truth is GDP is produced by sweating low paid laborers or the slave citizens but the profits is gobbled up by the monopolising Dynasty of Taipans. Now where is your theory that Per Capita GDP is measure of standard of living. What a Donk living inside crystal glass ! weeeeeeee…… nya….hahaha….. Peace >Y>>>>>>  

      • artz555

        Singapore has a per capita GDP of about $ 54,000, the USA has a per capita GDP of about $ 48,000, and, Japan and South Korea has a per capita GDPs of about $ 33,000. to $ 35,000 because they have low populations complementing their high GDP’s. China, PH and India have about $ 8,362, ,$ 4,214 and $ 3,693 per capita GDPs, respectively because of their higher populations complementing  their GDP’s. 

        You can visit all these countries and find out that the standard of living of high per capita GDP countries are contrastingly different compared to the low per capita GDP countries. Arkuitk, you can believe whatever you want, but everybody knows the reality. Also there are multi billionaires in these  rich countries, as there are multi billionaires in China, India and PH. Eat your heart out and your arguments.

    When the RH Bill was approved in ITALY, the pope was QUIET.

    Why are the lowly bishops so NOISY?

  • windhawl

    Jesus said..”give to Caesar what is due to Caesar, to God what is due to God.” if you give God money, do you question God where He plans to use it? so why do you question the state where they use the money they collect from the people?
    there is a process on how a state enact a law and that would be the time to stop the idea to become a law, but once its passed, signed, and implemented, we can no longer do anything but to obey.

    regarding sex education: who taught you about sex? magazines, adult movies, heard people talking about it, or your parents taught you or the leaders of your church?
    i think there are ways to teach sex in schools, i know that leaders of DECS and CHED will think of a way to make it age appropriate. i dont think that educators would directly teach the act itself to 10yr old

  • simondj

    why make a law (RH LAW) giving the government the right to introduce ways into the marriage bed? why make a law giving the teachers to discuss something which is to be discuss only on marriage bed? if the government can not solve corruption or discipline themselves to remove  corruption in their system,,, why they want to interfere in the affairs of the husband and wife.
    I THINK THIS IS TOO MUCH AUTHORITY. 

    • magisipngkonti

      So this means na dapat mga pari lang ng simbahang katoliko ang dapat sundin tungkol sa mga bagay na nauukol sa mga nangyayari sa kama? Katoliko ba lahat ng Pilipino?

      TOO MUCH AUTHORITY?  INTERFERENCE IN THE AFFAIRS OF THE HUSBAND AND WIFE?  Please read the law again…it provides for a freedom of CHOICE…

      • simondj

        did i say i am a catholic? i do not work for the catholic. my question is why allow the children to discuss for themselves the topics which is supposed to be discussed in marriage bed. why make them utter the words which 30 years or 50 years ago are forbiden by our forefather to utter by children? the bible is telling us,,, marriage shall be honor by all and let the marriage bed be not defiled,,
        MY POINT IS,,, IF THE GOVERNMENT CANT CONTROL THE CORRUPTION IN THEMSELVES WHY THEY INTERFERE IN THE AFFAIRS OF HUSBAND AND WIFE?
        now, if that is a choice, WHY MAKE THE LAW THAT IS NOT COMMON TO ALL MEN? God did not do that.

      • magisipngkonti

        wow…pls get in touch with reality . ONE the intents of the RH law is to educate the children to know what reproduction is all about. they will not be discussing it among themselves…a teacher will guide them in their discussion.  And the law has a proviso that if the parents of the child would not allow his/her child to attend an RH class then the parents has a right not to send their children to attend such class…clear? 

        As rejoinder to your second point…your premise about government which apparently cannot control corruption is a hasty generalization . Likewise it is also not interfering in the affairs of husband and wife because your point of view of RH is limited only to what happens in a matrimonial bed. Again, pls get in touch with reality…there are those who are not married who do it. AND MOST OF THEM ARE the same misinformed youth who have limited knowledge about reproduction.  This is exactly the intent of  incorporating it in the curriculum of the children so that they may know and be responsible.

        for your third point…It appears that you really dont have a grasp of what law making is all about to the extent of invoking God.

        Muslim men are allowed up to four wives each. The Revised Penal code categorizes bigamy as a crime…WHAT LAW prevails? 

      • simondj

        there is only one law giver, (God) but the law given by God is just our tutor, our guide to bring us to Gods righteousness. and nobody can fulfill the law (example you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony) so, God send forth his son to fulfill the law, so that he has the right to abolish it, so that whoever will have faith in him, will become righteous in the sight of God. all the law that man suggest is just experiment. plunder law,epal law, rh law, anti dynasty law, etc.etc.

      • simondj

        when God said, you shall not steal and you shall not bear false testimony,,, that statement is for all people. now this RH LAW you are telling me is optional? SO THIS IS A WASTE OF TIME AND RESOURSES.

      • Hfxwst

        .. .  bear false witness  – NOT Testimony.  You goof!

        How dare you suggest this is for all people just because YOUR preferred God  is quoted as saying that.  The God I subscribe to didn’t say that – want me to impose my beliefs on you?

      • simondj

        if your God did not tell you, not to bear false witness, so let it be,,, it is okay with me.

      • Rolly257

        Your testimony is false.

      • simondj

        nakasulat po sa biblia,,, you shall not steal,,, ano po ang mali kung sasabihin ko na sinulat iyan para sa lahat ng tao. ngayon may nagsasabi dito iyong RH LAW daw ay optional? SO, WHY MAKE OPTIONAL LAW?

  • simondj

    LIFE IS IN THE BLOOD,,,”And the LORD God…breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul”. (Gen2:7) “But you shall not eat flesh with its life – its blood”. (Gen9:4) “For the life of the flesh is in the blood…for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul”(Lev17:11) When Cain killed Abel, what did God say about Abel? “The voice of your brother’s -BLOOD- ‘cries’ out to Me from the ground.” (Gen4:10)
    Job speaks of “after my  body be destroyed..” in decay (Job19:26) yet I shall see God.

    • artz555

      Amen Father. But please teach these in Churches, in the Seminary schools, or in Vatican conferences. Not in this forum where 99 % of the people who writes or read in this forum are lay people, or non-clergy people, wherein people cannot understand the philosophies behind these qoutations.

      Sorry Simonji, just an opinion..
