SC stops implementation of RH law, sets oral arguments on June 18

MANILA, Philippines—The Supreme Court stopped the implementation of the Reproductive Health Law and set the oral arguments on June 18.

During Tuesday’s en banc or full court session, voting 10-5, the high court issued a 120 day status quo ante (SQA) against the law’s implementation.

Tfhe 10 justices are Associate Justices Presbitero Velasco Jr., Teresita Leonardo De Castro, Arturo Brion, Diosdado Peralta, Lucas Bersamin, Roberto Abad, Martin Villarama Jr., Jose Perez, Jose Mendoza and Bienvenido Reyes.

The five justices are Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, Associate Justices Estala Perlas-Bernabe, Mariano Del Castillo and Marvic Leonen.

An SQA is issued to preserve the last actual peaceable and uncontested status before the litigation or filing of a petition which means it is as if there is no law to implement yet.

There are at least 6 petitions filed with the high court by James Imbong, et al., Expedito Bugarin, Eduardo Olaguer and the Catholic Xybrspace Apostolate of the Philippines, Serve Life Cagayan De Oro City, et al., Task Force for Family and Life Visayas, Inc. and Valeriano Avila, and Alliance for the Family Foundation Philippines, Inc.

Petitioners argued that the Republic Act 10354 or the Act Providing for a National Policy on Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health “mocks the nation’s Filipino culture—noble and lofty in its values and holdings on life, motherhood and family life—now the fragile lifeblood of a treasured cultured that today stands solitary but proud in contrast to other nation.

They said the new law violates the Constitution which upholds the ideal of an unconditional respect for life and aspires for the establishment of policies that create opportunities to harness the economic potential of every Filipino.

But Akbayan Partylist national chairperson Risa Hontiveros, in her separate petition, said the anti-RH petition should be dismissed.

In a 51-page motion, petitioners told the high court that the RH law will help the government stop maternal deaths and misconceptions about reproductive health.

Contrary to allegations of anti-RH advocates, she said the new law does not legalize abortion in the country.

“[W]hile the petitioners mistakenly allege that RA 10354 will legalize abortion in the Philippines, a plain reading of the text of the said law makes it clear that abortion is expressly and repeatedly proscribed therein,” the motion stated.

They said, all the arguments raised in the petition, from the issue of constitutionality to various medical and scientific details of contraception to the objections of various religious groups were discussed at length in Congress.

      • Javaman

        ang weak naman ng reasoning mo dapat kang nalagay sa contraceptives para hindi sasanay! OGGAG!

    • done_druff

      hehehe… gusto mo lahat ng batas na pinapatupad eh walang kokontra?

      • Javaman

        that law is good for the poor, ok lang sayo cause you can afford condom and other girls pero ang mga wlang kakainin eh wala clang magawa sa gabi kaya paglilibangan nalang ang katabi…so sad for the real Pilipinos

      • magiting78

        bakit mura lng naman plastik ng ice candy ah….lol

      • done_druff

        tsk tsk… hindi mo ma-gets ano? Ano ba ang good sa condoms para sa mahirap? Tingin mo sure kang pagbinigay mo eh susuotin yan?

        Kung pipili mga yan, gusto pa nila pagkain kesa condom! Paano naging pang mahirap yan?!

      • magsasakasanayon

        haha. typical ignoramus. have you read the RH Law? saang provision nakalagay na ipamimigay na lang basta sa mahirap ang condoms (or any other contraceptives, for that matter)? tsk tsk.

      • done_druff

        o sige para mutawa ka at para mag mukhang kang mahusay dito…

        kung kukuha ng condom ang mahihirap, sa tingin mo gagamitin nya yun?

        At ang 12 billion na pera para sa RH… wag ko na ngang itanong at alam ko na sagot mo!

      • magsasakasanayon

        were you born that stupid? your argument is illogical. ba’t ka kukuha ng condom from the health centers kung di mo naman gagamitin? the condoms and the other contraceptives are available for those who need/want them.

      • Crazy_horse101010

        only in the cities there is none here because ive been asking and none in the mountains because i asked my wifes family. there might be in the nearest city but thats 70 kilometers away and most people here are lucky to afford a tricycle. thats why every where there women with 8 to 10 kids and pregnant teenagers everywhere

      • done_druff

        eh bobo ka pala eh. iniisip mong lahat ng kumukuha ng condom eh gagamitin nila! hindi mo ba naisip na yung mga kukuha nyan pwede nilang ibenta?

        sus para kang hindi pilipino at hindi mo alam yan! obobs!

      • magsasakasanayon

        haha. napakatalino ng mamang ito. nag-iisip ka muna po ba bago ka mag-post? hindi po lahat ng tao kasing talino mo. libre na nga ang condom tapos bibili ka pa? where the hell is your brain?

      • done_druff

        talagang utak lamok ka rin.

        hindi kamo lahat may access sa condoms. at yung mga mahihirap na may condoms eh bebenta nila yan kasi 5 pesos isa para lang maging pera!

        dyan ka na nga! mas matalino pa sayo mga mahihirap!

      • magsasakasanayon

        i wish na konti lang ang taong katulad mong mag-isip. that’s your best argument against the RH Law? walang sense. tsk tsk.

      • done_druff

        hehehe… sorry ka at hindi pa ako nakikipag-argue nyan. Ikaw sweeping ang conclusion na pag nanghihingi eh may pangangailangan! sus! hindi ka na nasanay sa mga tao at pilipino.

        Sabi ko nga sayo, mas matalino pa ang mga pobre kesa sa iyo. Biruin mo hindi mo naisip yun?! Talo ka no!

      • magsasakasanayon

        LOL. nakakatawa talaga ang arguments ng taong katiting lang ang utak. thank you for wasting my time.

      • done_druff

        kita mo na hindi mo ako kaya no! that goes to show how minute and dehydrated the organ inside your coconut skull!

      • Magsasaka

        yon lang pre, nagkalat ang mangmang sa pinas kaya nga karamihan sunudsunuran sa mga kagustuhan ng mga damaso hehehe

      • Javaman

        anong pipiliin mo sex or condom?

      • Magsasaka

        ibebenta?eh alam nga ng karamihan libre iyan dahil RH law kaya sino ang bibili?pukang na pinatitingkad mo lang ang iyong kamangmangan hehehe

      • Magsasaka

        pagpasensyahan mo na kasi mangmang iyan, kontra lang talaga iyan sa RH law dahil iyon ang gusto ng mga damaso.

      • Crazy_horse101010

        like a ostrich head in the sand hoping the lion wont see him

      • Javaman

        oo nga nabasa mo ang RH ka kaya lang hindi mo naintindihan kaya comment ka mali naman..ay nako your part of the weak genes dapat sayo nasa condom nalagay your a parasite! anyway get an interpreter that superior that your genes, wag sa family line mo kasi lahat kayo parasite.

      • Javaman

        Use your common sense…kaya nga marami tayo kasi walang pagkain ang karamihan sa mga pilipino sa sex lang nila dinadaan. No brainer comment!

      • Magsasaka

        ang babaw mo naman pala, akala mo hanggang condom lang pala ang RH law, para sa iyong kaalaman kasama sa batas na iyan ang pagtuturo sa highschool ng sex education, kasama sa batas na iyan ang pagkakaroon ng tuloy tuloy na programa at mga seminar para sa mga mag asawa at para sa pagpaplano ng pamilya pero hindi kasama sa batas na iyan ang sapilitang pagamit ng condom at iba pang contraceptives dahil malaya ang lahat ng pinoy kung artificial o natural ang gagamitin nya, maging objective ka naman napaghahalatang kontra ka lang sa RH law ng walang dahilan dahil yaon ang kagustuhan ng mga damasong nasa paligid mo.

    • Cerise David

      Galit ka kay Sereno?

      • Javaman

        shes a weak SCJ! walang choice kasi si PNoy at that time!

  • Eddwardd

      • done_druff

        talaga? ano ang discrimination dyan? Hurt ka ba? Sige sooorrryyy na…

      • Manuel_II

        duh, for your information, i do not live along the stretch of Nueve de Febrero road, but i knew some people and i can call some of them friends and by the way you connect the place to your comment is discriminatory. For the rest of the people who doesn’t know Nueve de Febrero, this is the road where the National Center for Mental Health is located.

      • done_druff

        What is discriminatory with my comment? Please educate me. I supposed you know what that word means.

        And please paki-ayos din grammar mo ha!

      • Manuel_II

        You just discriminate a group of people and you still denies it. LOL, and for a guy who THINKS he knows what grammar is and not know what discrimination meant is plain stupidity.

      • done_druff

        Balik ka muna school at paki-ayos grammar mo at di kita maintindihan. Kung di mo kayang mag-ingles, tagalog na lang at maiintindihan ka naman.

        Ah di pa pala wrong grammar… barok inglis pa! Sus!

        So calling a mentally retarded person is a discriminatory?!

      • Manuel_II

        It would be useless to explain something to someone who has a small brain. LOL

      • Magsasaka

        it should be mentally challenged hehehe, kaw talaga

      • Crazy_horse101010

        in most countries that would be a big lawsuit

      • done_druff

        sus! kala ko naman sasagot ka ng may laman eh sablay eh.

        nandito tayo sa pinas (atleast ako) kaya wag ka ng magyabang about other countries.

      • Crazy_horse101010

    The suspicion of many has now been confirmed.

    01. When PNoy vacillated between casting his lot with the pro-RH legislators or not, he waited until his certification of urgency was no longer vital as the pro-RH already had the numbers. PNoy did certify RH bill as urgent only at the last minute in order to steal the thunder from the RH proponents and gain himself pogi points.

    02. Now that the Catholic Church is campaigning noisily against PNoy, the president is now pulling strings in SC to have the implementation of RH law suspended. As it stands, the suspension of the RH law’s implementation is temporary. Just to pacify and appease the Catholic Church until after May 2013 elections.

    03. Mr. Lagman warned the nation once, right after the signing of the RH bill into law, that the implementation of the same can be effectively stopped by SC or starved of budget to render it useless.

    04. From the foregoing, it is clear as light of day that PNoy never really intended to stand up for the RH law. He only did it when it suited his purpose. Now that it no longer suits his party’s purpose, the PNoy-controlled SC is suspending RH. If need be, they might even suspend it forever if ordered by the palace. The palace can pretend and claim that the SC is an independent body, but we should all known better.

    • done_druff

      Panalo pa rin si Pnoy sa pag-stop ng SC?!!!

      • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

        To appease the church. Namamangka sa dalawang ilog kasi si PNoy.

    • cowan2325

      first, the petitioners cited several violations of the constitution with the rpovisions embodied in this law…second, more of our youngsters have admittedl to promiscuity by going to confession…they knew they sinned, so what is the truth to the claim of lagman that most catholic have approved of this bill? how can the people approve of something they knew all along would only bring them to the confessionary box? the SC should look at the constitutional issues…that’s fair…

      • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

        You can email Lagman directly through the webmail in PH congress’s website.

    • ChinaObserver

      You said “PNoy’s SC appointees are suspending the RH” but his appointees are among the ones who voted against the SQA. Read carefully.

  • quirinomayer

    A sad day for Filipinos who do not know the blessings of bearing only the number of children they could afford to give a good life to. A day of rejoicing for those who call themselves pro-life – which means a life condemned to perpetual misery and poverty for most Filipinos.

    May the Supreme Court see the light in the end.

      • Andrei Mendoza

        napaka shallow naman ng pag-kaintindi mo sa RH bill, ang akala mo ba eh “pang condom” lang ang RH bill? ano kaya kung basahin mo muna ang bill, pero kailangan mo ng parental guidance para may mapag-tanungan ka kung sakaling hindi mo maintindihan at dapat may dictionary kang katabi.

    • done_druff

      aba dinelete ng mod mga sagot dito?!

      at ginawa pa nitong tao nito ang condom na blessing?!!!!!!

      Your statement seems to equate contraceptive funding to poverty cure. I doubt that. There are safer (and cheaper) ways to do family planning. The billions of pesos used to fund contraception could be of more help to the poor if spent on programs that truly address poverty.

  • angelo castro

    Well, from the very start Pia Cayetano and other officials are pushing the RH bill because of the money that they will get from pharmaceutical companies. Pia has lost children due to miscarriage and other birth defects so she wants others to experience the situation too! Psychologically -ill senator! If a married couple wants to space out their children, avoid becoming pregnant, or find the best time to achieve pregnancy then the best way for them to do so is to pay attention to the rhythm of the woman’s menstrual cycle. The female body already has a natural God-given method for determining the best time to achieve pregnancy or to avoid it – no artificial birth control measures needed! In simple terms, control your libido!

    • ordinaryo

      back to the dark ages and hungry children i wonder how many parents are going to ask me to buy their children now or give them away. i already have 3 that their mother didnt want and now this woman has 4 more. sad case is she is a drug addict and all her kids have mental problems including the 3 i adopted they will never function in the real world and she just one of many in the mountains so rejoice while i go out every day and look at kids who are full of worms and have rat bites all over their bodies kids who get one meal a day.celebrate you dont have to look at it or see them suffering and look at crying mothers when they try to give me their kids

      • boldyak

        the best solution is to educate the mother to have values in life…give her contraceptive and still she will be a useless citizen…

      • marienkind

        Even the priests who are supposed to do the educating can’t keep their childmakers outside their parishioners. How exactly is this going to work again?

      • Crazy_horse101010

        sorry im from another country that has had birth control for 60 years its called a 1st world country. not third world we are talking about children not mothers where are you going to put them on each others shoulders and where is this education coming from ive been around contraceptives all my life and know they work you think these mothers dont go to church its called desperation that people get this way not education can you eat education nerer will work

      RH law is more of the long-term while state subsidy for education is short to medium term, IMHO.

    • ganipecson

      RH Law na po because it was already approved by congress. I view the RH Law as an effective instrument of the government in solving once and for all our perennial problem on education, health, poverty, and other social ills. Remember the Malthusian Theory? It says that population grow geometrically while food production grow arithmetically. However, let me emphasize that such theory is unacceptable to the anti-RH Law people.

      • boldyak

        giving free condoms will make people more irresponsible and their attitude towards life will worsen, it will not solve the perennial problem you are talking about, change in the attitude of country’s leaders is required…it is a misguided solution to the problem of the country….our leaders blame the populations growth for their incompetence and corrupt practices, they are to be blamed and not the growing population…look at who are the principal author of the bill, politicians who failed in their family life…let us face the facts and not blame others, the real problems are not being addressed….

    The problem with most Filipinas especially those in the poverty level,they don’t pay attention to that so called rhythm of menstrual cycle.In fact they care less. They should be inculcated of the effects of bearing more children beyond their capability to sustain a family.Normally they are aware of that,but,they seem don’t want to face it..

    • Crazy_horse101010

      how do you tell a drunk husband lets wait its not time yet that is why i see women with black eyes and bruises in other countries where there is birth control only 2 percent of catholic women use the natural method the rest the pill are they all going to hell

  • http://www.facebook.com/garth.whelan Garth Colin Whelan

    Glad to hear this. By the way, it’s not only Catholic leaders who are anti-RH, but many pentecostal and Baptists are also. The areas of morality are ones that Catholics and Protestants agree on. Psalm 127 speaks about how children are like arrows in the quiver; and blessed is the man whose quiver is FULL of them.

    I have read the whole RH Bill, and on the surface it looks good; but many of statements are open for manipulation. For example, how many people here, want their children who are 10 years old, know how to wear a condom? They will ask questions in which the answers are for adolescents. If the genuine reason was to control the number of children born to couples who can’t afford to keep them, then why does a 10 year old need to know this, unless it’s going to suggest to children that they can get away with sex by using condoms to avoid pregnancy?

    • Crazy_horse101010

      funny protestants support it in other countries in case you havent heard the philippines is one of the world leaders in teen age pregnancies how many more do you want lets try for number one its close everywhere i see 13 and 14 year old girls who are pregnant or are carrying babies so when are you going to teach them i wish all of you lived where i do and see what is going on in the real world i would like to see you look a mother in the eye who is crying and trying to give you her child im a tough man but sometimes its heart breaking

        the point of the matter is… if they really wanted to help people, especially the poor then why put the bill at so high that only few can afford easily..or this is just their way of saying or showing that this is how Jesus Christ love the poor..

      Buwis galing sa lahat, may it be direct or indirect. Dito nililikom ng gobyerno ang pondo para sa basic services & investment of basic infrastructure. Look at the developed world, the government has the control of the basic services & infra development over the private sector. Their economic fundamentals are very resilient even though they’re encouraging the private sector to participate in the undertaking. Sa Pilipinas, ang oligarchiya mas may control sa gobyerno, dahil hawak nila mismo ang mga tao sa gobyerno, mapa-military, police at abnoy na presidente.

    2) use of natural birth control techniques (aka hit-n-run) to control population growth;
    3) encourage people to practice a life of celibacy (aka monsignor-fast) to control population growth;
    4) practice lgbt lifestyle (aka analysex): 25% increase in hiv/aids cases, negative pop growth;
    5) perpetual implementation of the cct (aka eternal-beggar) program;
    6) train the poor acquire skills and livelihood (aka sow-n-reap) using rh + cct budget (>17B total);
    and you say?

    the rhlaw is like up manila, cruel and deadly.
    No to rhlaw.

    Sa taas ng kuryente’t bilihin pa lang kahit mga OFW (na katamtaman lang ang kinikita) dama ang hirap. Malayo na sa pamilya, di pa sapat sa gastusin ang pinapadala.

    It used to be the NINE. The nine justices (the former chief justice and eight associate justices) who were appointees of Gloria Arroyo who stood as road blocks along the path of good government.

    Now it is TEN. The NINE plus ONE associate justices still continue to block the road to progress, the path to economic prosperity. They chose to listen to illogical arguments of those who insist that the Reproductive Health Law is pro-abortion. They refused to accept that the law categorically prohibits abortion.

    Associate Justice Bienvenido Reyes was appointed by President Aquino. But he studied at UST and San Beda, both Catholic schools. This prompted him to adhere to the Catholic teachings.

    The more poor children, the more the people will suffer. What actually mocks the
    nation’s Filipino culture is the corrupt political elite, bent on selling out
    the country’s natural resources, willfully destroying the ecological capital of
    a nation that in biocultural terms is one of the richest in the world. Striking
    is the hypocrisy with which this happens: their mouths are full of God, their mind
    full of dollars just like their bank accounts. In a couple of decades, the last
    Phillipine woods will be gone forever while in Manila he clowns keep on doing their
    daily show. Check Mr. Enrile’s backyard in Gonzaga for example where Chinese
    and Taiwanese companies are allowed to destroy the future of the next
    generations. Where is the padrino? Maybe it is time to stop pretending that the Philippines is a democracy. How do you call a country where corruption is
    part of every layer of society, where judges can be bought and politicians get
    away with fraud and looting and where human crocodiles are far more dangerous
    than the real ones? Anyone?

    At least the SC is still somehow independent from the authoritative President. Before any other new laws be implemented, the FOI should be passed first. With how shady the government has become, it is high time that the FOI be passed into a law. Otherwise, these new laws including RH could be used for personal interests.

  • veritatis_splendor

    Mabuti naman. Salamat sa Diyos. Ang dami pa namang lumusot na provisions na kahit pro-RH admitted went too far. (ex. Mandatory sex education, walang opt out). Government sponsored contraception outside of marriage, of contraceptives with abortifacient mechanisms, plus, forcing health workers to facilitate contraceptive access despite their moral objections (this includes requiring to immediately refer for these “services”.. i’m not against patients being referred so they can continue their treatment from another doctor of their choice, pero yung parusahan at ikulong yung health worker for failing to facilitate a referral for contraception, sobra naman yun. hindi naman emergent therapeutic intervention ang contraception.) Ganito talaga nangyayari kapag pork barrel at support from certain businesses ang nagpapasa sa batas. Aminin na natin, if “genuine concern for the poor” ang dahilan, e di sana di na kailangn i-“pressure” ng palasyo. Hindi tuloy pinag-isipan.

    • windhawl

      any health worker should be familiar with “informed consent”, health workers are mandated to cite reasonable alternatives and related risk and uncertainties. for a health worker to cite only options in line with his/her belief system is unfair and unjust to the client.
      even if we know the client is a member of Jehovah’s witness we still include blood transfusion in the option when needed.

      don’t put yourself in a place to be tempted. if being or maintaining a health care facility includes government mandated laws then why still maintain it?
