6 petitions vs RH law, still no TRO



ANTI-RH PROTEST A red ribbon hangs inside St. Ferdinand Cathedral in Lucena City as Catholics continue protest against the RH law. INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

There are now six petitions challenging the constitutionality of the controversial Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act of 2012, but the Supreme Court has not issued any order granting their request for a temporary restraining order (TRO) of the law’s implementation.

The SC public information office said that in last Tuesday’s en banc session, the high court merely asked the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) to comment on two new petitions that had been filed recently—Expedito Bugarin versus the Office of the President and Eduardo Olaguer vs the Catholic Xybrspace Apostolate of the Philippines vs the Department of Health Secretary.

“No action had been taken on the respective requests for TROs,” it said.

    “6 petitions vs RH law, still no TRO”

    RH LAW IS LEGAL AND CONSTITUTIONAL!!!!!

    That’s why

    NO TRO.

    At kailan man ay hindi magkakaroon.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Reynaldo-Quijada/100000740291153 Reynaldo Quijada

    The RH law is legal but constitutional? The Supreme Court should show its independence from PNoy. What I am worried about as a Father of our children is what will happen to them when they start to receive sex education from the age of 9 years old to 15 years old? Parental consent?? It is a a hood wink tactic of Lagman, Cayetano, Defensor and the rest pro RH because sex education will be intertwined in the basic nine subjects of our children and if as parents will not consent, where shall our children go fro school unless we can afford to send them to private  schools. RH is much worse than super typhoon Pablo because the damage caused by RH will be forever!!! Defensor now realizes that she is not God.

    • brunogiordano

      Tapos na ang boxing.

      Moot and academic na ang argumento mo.

      Walang TRO.

      RH LAW dapat lang ipatupad at sundin.

    • johnlagrimas

      Very sound and realistic argument. Repeal RH Law!

      • Jane Tan

        Argument stemming from unfounded fears and lacking in facts. Truly sound.

    • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

      what exactly do you think happens during “sex education from the age of 9 years old to 15 years old?”

      Tell me your honest fears.

      Kasi i don’t think it will be the same kind of topics one would expect as adults would be instructed, dba?

      What if it taught appropriate actions when dealing with the opposite sex? Like how girls should sit in proper company with boys. Or what a girl should know to identify if she is being taken advantaged (like hipô o chancing). Or what a girl should do if she feels uncomfortable to make it stop, including the levels of escalation to make it stop?

      Or what about dealing with menstruation and other girl stuff not necessarily part of the academic curriculum. Not all parents are there to teach it. We should have at least have a net if children have parents that work abroad, or not adept to teach such things.

      Not the same sex education that some people had in mind right?

      Sex, and protection, that too if necessary. Just exactly when is the best time to start? after they have done the deed and now are pregnant or worse, sick?

      • http://www.facebook.com/pgnelineman Daniel Nielsen

        recently i was walking down a beach and there on the sand was a little girl about 3 years old laying on her back clothed but there was a boy about 6 six years old laying on top of her humping away and another 5 or 6 boys watching them when they seen me and ran off. where did they learn that. i live among the poor and everywhere i go there is girls 13 or 14 years old pregeant and there lives ruined and it gets worse ever year

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        I would imagine from TV, movies or from watching parents if they sleep on the same room. Certainly experimentation or being made fun of by their peers or friends certainly comes to mind.

        Maybe at this point, if they still go to school they could be taught that these are not the way to go.

        “everywhere i go there is girls 13 or 14 years old pregeant and there lives ruined and it gets worse ever year”

        apparently, home schooling children about sex isn’t enough. it must be bolstered both at home and in school. Certainly not the church though.

      • http://www.facebook.com/pgnelineman Daniel Nielsen

        not many tvs here and no movies. according to the newspapers, the phippines leads the world in expecting teenagers there has to be some way of solving the problem.

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        Yes. And the solution should be multi faceted, and redundant if possible. Like if the parents wont teach, then let the school teach it, or the health centers teach it. Let it be known that if one aspect of information fails, there would be other means to teach it.

      • http://www.facebook.com/pgnelineman Daniel Nielsen

        i always thought it was hard for parents to teach their kids when they have 10 kids themself. its kind of like the blind leading the blind.i come from a country where they have sex education in the schools and no one has problems with it. some parents even give their daughters the pill to make sure they dont get pregnant especially if they date a lot, im not saying thats right or wrong just the way it is

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        Then you are in agreement.

      • marionics

        haven’t you ever played house with a girl before???? cmon man. i also had this experience with a girl when we were around 5 or 6 also. it was our landlady’s daughter who i was playing house with. but of course at that age i was not able to get any penetration going (thank god). but what i’m saying is that there is no age limit for sexual experimentation. that’s why there should be no age limit for sex education

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        “haven’t you ever played house with a girl before????”

        did, and that’s what scares me. lol.

        kids will play, no doubt. and they play without malice.

        its those that goes beyond kid play that we should teach our children to be wary of.

        “but what i’m saying is that there is no age limit for sexual experimentation. that’s why there should be no age limit for sex education”

        agreed.

      • marionics

        yup. it’s all part of the evolutionary process of procreation. it’s in our dna to instinctively know how to hump so we must educate ourselves as to the results of these instincts. haaaay naku masasabihan na naman akong manyakis pero i remember noong teenager ka pa e madikit ka lang sa babae e nagaapoy na balat mo e. atsaka grabe ang visual sexual stimuli sa lalake. makakita ka lang ng makinis e susmayosep!!!

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        ahahaha.

    • PinayArtistinBoston

      Your fears are unfounded. It is better to teach our children sex education in the schools so that they will be informed by trained and competent teachers. Do you want your children to learn it from the movies, from their priests, from magazines or from their friends?
       
      I believe your apprehension is that sex education leads to sexual activity. And all studies from different countries refute this.
       
      My two children who had sex education since elementary school and grew up in western Massachusetts and upstate NY where they had their primary to high school education became responsible adults and parents.

      • Jane Tan

        Agreed. I’ve had it early on as well. Proud to say that I respect my own sexuality and that of others.

        i agree my daughters had sex education and it never hurt them. talking to people here what happens is a boy will say to the girl. hey i want to show you something new then presto she has a baby that she never knew where it came. most parents will not teach their kids sex education because its a taboo subject.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/SPLUBLEOSERDBOIJTDOC6XIWGU mxsclxmxn

        parents will not teach their kids sex ed? holy cow? where did you get that idea? huh huh huh! bowowow…your pastors are really making things up! 

        your daughters? owwss you got daughters now? and they had sex ed. good! give them unlimited supply of condoms just in case.

        i know you wont miss that for sure!

      • marionics

        in our school when we were in elementary and highschool we were taught about the male and female reproductive organs as well as fertility cycles and systems and even contraceptives like condoms IUD and pills and i really remembered all of it so much so that i always had a condom handy in my wallet he he. that’s why i never got a girl pregnant or got STD he he

        man those were the days he he

        As the priest was leaving his church after the service, he accidentally
        bumped into a gorgeous blonde parishioner, knocking her left tit with his
        elbow.
        “I’m so sorry,” the priest gushed. Then after a moment of hesitation
        added, “but I’m sure if your heart is as soft as your breast, there’s a
        place for you in heaven.”
        “Well,” said the blonde, “if your cóck’s as hard as your elbow,
        we should go into those bushes and fúck!”

        hahaha…and your pastors never do it? 

    • Jane Tan

      1) I don’t think that they will be able to or aim to integrate sex education to everyday school curriculum. That’s weird, even for my taste. “Children, what is 3 x 10? Which is also incidentally the days separating a woman’s period.” Lol.

      2) I got sex-ed when I was at a young age. Even my parents thought it was okay. Why leave things to chance? In this day and age, children are exposed to sexual content in many different forms of media. Remind your kids, even at a young age. There is no evidence suggesting that teaching teens sex education will lead to sexual predators. Thinking it is inappropriate is just being paranoid and naive. If anything, they will just laugh when they hear the keywords.

        … u missed the point miss. 

        …that is what you have when you re exposed to sex education.

        Sex education not done proper to the right audience have a dangerous effect on young minds!

        But it seems you re all GO GO GO for your RH Law! So go girl go! 

      • Jane Tan

        Lol please sir, don’t intentionally make yourself look bad and then deflect it towards us.

        you ridicule priest talking about family because they dont have a family. now, you talk about kids, when you even don t have a kid! how is that?

        hor hor hor!

      • Jane Tan

        1) I never ridiculed a priest in that manner.
        2) I don’t think it was a priest who initially brought-up the issue of early sex-ed.
        3) Even if a priest should say such things, I wouldn’t need to use the “own-family” card. I don’t need to stoop so low as to deflect the issue back at said-priest when he doesn’t even have the facts to support his claim.

        Now that I think about it… common tactic for anti-RH.

        Fail.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/SPLUBLEOSERDBOIJTDOC6XIWGU mxsclxmxn

        ooowwsss quick to shift gear..never done it eh (#1)?

        …anyways, its not only you doing it…there are lots of your so called brothers here are doing it here!

        common tactic? what a word! just like you have your own tactic too as pro-RH. hohoho! 

      • Jane Tan

        I’d dare you to print-screen an instance where I said that a priest has no right to talk about having kids when they don’t even have any, but I already know you won’t do it because you know you can’t and you know I’m right when I say that I haven’t done it.

        Wrong. “Its other people doing it” is what you meant. Can you tell me their names or their aliases? Is there name/alias similar to mine? Just because I’m pro-RH, you assume all of us say that? Heck, if that’s your reasoning, since you and the bishops support the Church and some bishops sexually abuse minors, does that mean you abuse minors too?

        And since these people do it, makes it okay for you to do it too? You preach about following God’s Word yet none of us have yet to see you follow it. All we can see is a deluded man using God’s Word as an excuse to vent his anger and insecurities on others.

        See. Its so easy to turn your way of thinking against you. Because you have no facts.

        And, when you read this reply, you’ll probably just insult me in some other way, deflect the issue, maybe change the issue, downplay the outcome, call me your friend in the hopes of making it seem like it was a joke.

        Oh snap.

      I really doubt your daugthers would start stripping in front of strangers and start calling random guys to have sex in your house when they start receiving sex education. Quite far from it. On the otherhand, they would become more aware of the dangers of premarital sex, dangers of acquiring infectious diseases, what to do in case they are in danger of being raped or a victim of sexual/relationship abuse. They will be more prepared to face the challenges of the real world and not the naive, ignorant bunch.

      Interesting that you’re complaining you cannot afford to send your children to private schools. Well it’s totally your prerogative..it’s your decision to have so many children..like 10 or 11 when you know you don’t have all the resources to give the best there is for their future. NO one is to blame but you! So swallow it. If you only have half of them maybe….likely you would not be making the same statement. That is exactly why young families should learn how to plan their family either using natural or artificial methods based on their capacity to provide for their children. After all it’s the children that would bear the brunt of continuing poverty if they cannot even finish some form of education that are employable.

    Hindi legal ang mga arguments ng anti-RH kaya matatalo ito sa supreme court. 

  • andrew lim

    As Fr Bernas has commented, the anti-RH petitions can be summarized as follows:

    ” The RH law is unconstitutional because it does not hew closely to Catholicism.” 

    Which makes the arguments nonsense.

    The priest of a small congregation was about to start his sermon
    when he noticed a young woman in the front row, wearing a tight dress with her
    boobs almost hanging out.
    He couldn’t concentrate on his message to the flock, so he dismissed the
    service and asked to speak to the woman after everyone else had left the
    church.
    When they were alone, the priest said in his sternest lecturing voice,
    “just what do you mean coming to church dressed like that?”
    “Why father, ” the young thing replied, “all of my boyfriends
    tell me that they can hear the angels sing when they put their heads on my
    breasts.”
    “Hmm, well, let me check.” said the man of the cloth, placing his
    head between her tits. After several minutes, he raised his head and said,
    “I don’t hear any angels singing!”
    “Of course not father,” she said. “You’re not plugged in
    yet!”

    “Is it proper for one man to profit from the mistakes of
    another?” a bloke asked his minister.
    “Definitely not” was the clergyman’s answer.
    “Are you certain?”
    “Absolutely!”
    “In that case,” said the guy, “would you mind returning the $50
    I gave you after my wedding last year?”

    fearless forecast: 
    the rhlaw budget will become as anomalous as the senate mooe. 

    No to perversion!
    No to rhlaw.

      If you’re against perversion, you might want to start with Catholic priests and choirboys

    No TRO because the supreme court believes that there is a separation of the church and the state. The state is the people of ALL or LAHAT ng races, faith and denomination. If only the Catholic Church is saying that the RH Law is against their religion, it is still cannot dictate the welfare of other denominations.

    It is against the Bill of rights and the Magna Carta for women to whoever or a certain religion to dictate what is best for their own health. A catholic priest cannot say to a muslim or born again woman that they cannot have contraceptives because its against their catholic religion.not because they don’t want it, other religions will be denied access to RH benefits.

    • Mark Philip Wu

      Well the anti-RH position is: “F those other religions, we’re the majority, we’re the important ones here!” 

  • Mark Philip Wu

    Hopefully none of our judges have poor enough judgement to actually take any of these nuisance complaints seriously.

    There is NOTHING unconstitutional about a law that does not force anyone to do anything. Catholics are still free to follow whatever they want to do. If you don’t like the services, then don’t get them! 

    the Church and anti-RH people are afraid because they know that people will openly disregard what the Catholic church says. These self righteous people couldn’t accept that other Catholics may have different opinions from the church, and simply label them as “fake catholics” or tell them to leave the church, instead of questioning themselves and if they’re the ones that are wrong

    “Dad, I think the priest is a homosexual.”
    “What makes you think that son?”
    “Because he closes his eyes when I kiss him.”

    Even the neighborhood BALUT Vendor can file a case against the RH if he wanted to..

    The administration bullied hard in the passing of this bill. They will not just allow it to be stopped, even temporarily. With these kinds of bills being passed that could boost corruption, all the more that the FOI bill must be passed.
