Church hails SC ruling on RH: God is on our side

Catholic bishops welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court on Tuesday to suspend for 120 days the implementation of the controversial reproductive health (RH) law in order to hear 10 Church-backed petitions contesting its constitutionality.

Sorsogon Bishop Arturo Bastes said newly installed Pope Francis would be “very happy” with the tribunal’s order, pointing out that the former archbishop of Buenos Aires was against the distribution of free contraceptives in Argentina.

“That’s exactly the same as the RH law,” Bastes said. “I hope that in the end, that law will be abolished. I’m happy. To the lay people, let us continue our campaign against the RH law, particularly in the coming elections in May.”

Supreme Court spokesman Theodore Te told reporters the tribunal voted 10-5 to issue the four-month freeze order against the law, which requires government health centers to hand out free condoms and schools to teach sex education.

Te did not comment on the merits of the case, saying only the court in an en banc session had issued the suspension to allow opponents of the law time to present their oral arguments on June 18.

The 10 who voted for the freeze—and a status quo ante—were Justices Martin Villarama, Teresita de Castro, Jose Perez, Diosdado Peralta, Presbitero  Velasco, Bienvenido Reyes, Arturo Brion, Lucas Bersamin, Roberto Abad and Jose Mendoza.

Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno, Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio and Justices Mariano del Castillo, Estela Perlas-Bernabe and Marvic Leonen dissented.

“Praise the Lord. God is on our side. Our struggle against the RH law is correct,” Digos Bishop Guillermo Afable told Church-run Radio Veritas.

Palace reaction

Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said Malacañang would respect the court’s resolution.

“We are confident that the government will be able to defend the merits of the responsible parenthood law,” Lacierda said in a text message.

Communications Secretary Ricky Carandang said the court’s move could affect the country’s efforts to comply with the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals.

“This law was supposed to bring down maternal mortality. Ultimately, it will bring down levels of poverty in combination with other programs that we have,” he said.

“If we were able to wait for 14 years, then we are willing to wait some more but we hope it won’t be that long again because these are for our women,” Health Assistant Secretary Eric Tayag said, referring to the period the population control bill had languished in Congress.

President Aquino’s intervention led to the passage of the long-pending bill late last year. Aquino signed the measure into law without fanfare last December amid a determined effort by the Church to contest it every step of the way.

The Department of Health had earlier planned to begin implementation of the law on Easter Sunday, but Tayag said that even if the court did not intervene the program could not be launched because the rules and regulations to carry it out had not been hammered out.

Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman, principal author of the RH law, said in a statement he believed that the court would eventually uphold the measure, pointing out that it did not “defile” the right to life enshrined in the Constitution.

“The RH law does not legalize abortion. In fact, it acknowledges that abortion is illegal and punishable and is not a family planning option or method,” he said.

“The accusation that the RH law is offensive to religious freedom is a patent aberration. The act is replete with provisions upholding freedom of religion and respecting religious convictions. The guarantee of freedom of informed choice is an assurance that no one would be compelled to violate the tenets of his religion or defy his religious convictions against his free will and own discernment of his faith,” Lagman said.

More mothers dying

Iloilo Rep. Janette Garin, coauthor of the law, warned: “Every day of delay means more mothers dying every day, more children being orphaned, and many Filipino families being deprived of their choice to have a better quality of life.”

Ifugao Rep. Teddy Baguilat said he was disappointed. “Why wait until June for oral arguments to be heard when this has been one of the most debated laws in history of Congress? It could have been timed to hit pro-RH legislators in our (midterm election) campaign,” Baguilat said.

Sen. Gregorio Honasan said in a text message: “That’s good. The Supreme Court is showing signs of life.”

Sen. Tito Sotto, who mounted a spirited opposition to the law when it was being debated in the Senate, said that the court “knows what is best for the country.”

“Let them decide,” he said, reiterating his contention in three privilege speeches that the RH law “is against our prolife Constitution.”

Sen. Jinggoy Estrada described the court order as a “temporary victory for the Church and the anti-RH group.”

Sen. Francis Escudero said that while he disagreed with the ruling, “we should follow and respect it.”

‘The Lord is moving’

Marbel Bishop Dinualdo Gutierrez thanked God that the RH law was stopped, pointing out that the government had planned to fully implement it starting on Easter Sunday.

“The hand of the Lord is moving in the hearts of Supreme Court justices,” he said.

Fr. Melvin Castro, executive secretary of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines-Episcopal Commission on Family and Life, urged the faithful to be vigilant, saying the court order was just a “temporary victory.”

“This just means that we should be more active against the RH law,” Castro said. “This is also a challenge to voters to elect candidates who support life and the family. The high court heard our prayers that any law that is questionable based on our Constitution should not be implemented.”

“This is a victory for the truth. We thank God for inspiring the justices to vote against the RH Law,” Fr. Amadeo Alvero, spokesman of the archdiocese of Palo, said in a text message.

“This has been our prayer that people may realize the evil of RH Law. It has been heard. And we are praying and hoping that it be soon declared as illegal,” he added.—With reports from  Christine O.

    It is probably a reflection of the Catholoc hierarchy’s medieval mentality that a TRO is now an act of God. TROs are issued routinely by the courts to clear issues. Should the SC uphold the validity of the law – which it will probably likely do as there is nothing there that violates the constitution, what will these bishops now say? Appointing one’s selves as God’s spokesperson is an act replete with pitfalls, most especially if one only seeks to impose one’s religious edicts on what is essentially a religiously pluralistic society and a secular government. Good fathers, a lot of times, it’s simply a case of “walaaaang himalaaa”.

    • stjohnofthevatican

      I agree to that. I was also wondering what their god is doing while some of their priest are sexually harassing young children? God on their side again?

    • done_druff

      Hehehe… Medieval! hahahaha… Funny bro!

      Kung ayaw mong maniwala hindi ka pinipilit. So ang SC dapat ina-uphold ang batas kahit na sya ay mali or labag sa constitution?!

      So wag mo ng pakialaman ang mga taong naniwawala sa gawa ng dyos kung ikaw hindi naniniwala sa dyos.

  • jinx

    Hello? This temporary setback of the RH bill is not the work of God, nor of any invisible spirit. It’s just a man-made decision based on religious preferences by people who are riding on the popularity of the newly-elected pope. There’s no miracle involved here. It’s just a bunch of hoodlums in robes playing god.

    • Hfxwst

      I agree- tyranny of a religious majority, it is common in under educated countries.

      • cowan2325

        just defend the evil law before the court…and let’s see how educated you are…

      • Crazy_horse101010

        why does the rest of the world have that law including all catholic countries are they all stupid and you the only smart one i doubt it.

      • cowan2325

        well,.GOD taught people to be wise not smart…if it is something for the brain, it’s not going to last…if it’s something for the heart, it’s eternal…ain’t that so? this RH law can never prevail in our land…you can count on that…

      • Crazy_horse101010

        well some day you will be eating your kids just like the irish did during the potato famine. i can count on a lot of suffering oh hell there is already suffering in the provinces. what will happen if gobal warming persists austrialia is having droughts new zealand having a drought. heartland america where the most wheat is grown last year had a drought africa is having droughts. you dont grow enough food now what will happen if the temperature rises more. good luck. better stockpile a lot of food

      • cowan2325

        potato famine? droughts? and the RH bill can prevent that?

      • Crazy_horse101010

        no lets have 5 blllion kids are you for real guess not . if you cant understand economics and whats going on. you are to brainwashed to see whats under your nose. ps ive heard a lot of dumb remarks in my life and yours just made the top ten list pitiful

      • cowan2325

        thank you…but if you do understand economics you should know that 5 billion kids can also grow 5 trillion kilos of potatoes…

      • Crazy_horse101010

        in what the ocean i hate to tell you but i live near some of the veggie gardens and the soil is wasted that is the reason veggies are third the size here than anywhere else. and getting smaller their trying to plant corn where a goat cant hardly walk because there is no land, as i said go out in the real world not lala land i understand farming better than you know economics since i was born on one, god unbelieveable.

      • cowan2325

        relax…the government will be wiser then to spend on getting land for the 5 billion kids than to spend on getting condoms…right?

      • Crazy_horse101010

        i promise you your not wiser than the rest of the world they are wondering why you are willing to destroy your country over something from the middle ages you should have read the cnn forums when was announced that the philippines was going to have birth control it was finally they are joining the 21st century. its eternal until you run out of food and water then the whole things moot. the cardinals will go to the vatican and leave everyone else to clean up the mess. keep living in your dream world

      • cowan2325

        hehe…cnn forums? ok..

      • Crazy_horse101010

        yes haw haw haw

      • Hfxwst

        You forgot to say: “God will provide. . . “

      • Crazy_horse101010

        thats what the irish thought.

      • Hfxwst

        It took the Irish about 200 years to finally comes to terms with the truth about the Catholic Church. Last year they withdrew their Ambassador to the Vatican over the sexual molestation of young children by Priests and the protection of those Priests by Bishops – the code of silence with police was finally broken. This too will finally happen in the Philippines. Pray it will not take 200 years

      • Crazy_horse101010

        yes and a lot of irish american catholics left the church also. ivan the terrible didnt help their cause either or his real name ivan payne they even did a tv show on him. he raped a lot of kids in their hospital beds, i also read how they stole thousands of kids there like they did in spain and and 150000 in austrialia. they said gee sorry.

      • Hfxwst

        Yeah and there were others. Interesting the Archbishop gave him 30,000 Irish pounds to pay for damages to a victim and keep the case out of court. Betcha those were Parishioners’s funds and not Vatican Funds. Other settlements in Canada and the USA has cost $millions – more and more continue to surface. Policing Officials are also being faulted for the “code of silence” with the Catholic Church.

      • Crazy_horse101010

        he got a loan from the cardinal of ireland to give to the rape victims which never did and he disappeared they found him living in wales by a grade school he is still being paid by the church. ten million dollars more last week in america. it is over 3 billion dollars now

      • Hfxwst

        The Church is smart enough and have organized themselves such that it is the local parish that pays, and not the Vatican. In some cases, the parish has had to sell land and buildings to pay the fines. This will happen in the Philippines. The Bishops will sell anything before they will ever take a bus lol

      • Hfxwst

        Evil Law? I feel sorry for you – clearly under educated. We really do need to remove education from religious control and improve our international standing of our universities = those numbers speak for themselves.

      • scy.no.med

        So true. Even North Korea beats us in literacy, and they’re a bunch of godless heathens!

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

        I doubt that, most Filipinos I know speak at least three languages. Most Koreans know only Korean, and a bit of Chinese which is mostly names, and their English is very limited compared to Filipinos. Why do you think many international BPO companies come here? Simple; because of the high literacy of the Filipino population.

      • Hfxwst

        Philippine university degrees are not transferable to western countries, they require you to upgrade to their standards – S. Korea’s are. Koreans are in Manila to learn English because it is cheap.

      • cowan2325

        ok… and you are educated? good…give me numbers then…how much do you project this law can cut on the population growth rate? and give me figures not guesswork…

      • Hfxwst

        It won’t cut any from the existing population. It will diminish the growth of the population rate if women CHOOSE to use birth control. Do you realize this is a 1960’s issue – most countries (even Catholic 3rd world countries) have adopted family planning principles. The Philippines is last again.

        CBCP should be preaching from the Alter – not the SC. Not everyone here is Catholic.

        We should also stop 2nd 3rd, 4th families – that seems quite acceptable here – and against Catholic teachings – it is more like the Mormans.

      • cowan2325

        ok…by how much will the RH bill cut on the growth rate? numbers…

      • Hfxwst

        Didn’t you do this research before the RH Bill was passed and you decided not to support it? Or did you just make a decision based on singular religious doctrine. Why are you asking me these questions now, you should already know the answer – or are you just plain intellectually lazy?

      • Crazy_horse101010

        like talking to a tree

      • ARIKUTIK

        A Population control policy targeting the poorest of the poor was already in place since the days of Marcos. Those who were gainfully employed bears less babies but the unemployed or under employed remains poor. With that Pak, RH law is not the solution for poverty and population control. It is econjomic activity for people to be employed and get busy looking up at bright future.

        The downtrodden got no hope to look up to even with only one child. The best bet for them is to produce more children and hope that at least one will be lucky enough to make it through. That is the law of nature as demonstrated by tiny creatures that lays eggs by the thousand so that even if they are eaten by Big fish, some of the offspring will survive.

        Make the Filipinos become big employed creature then naturally they will produce less children.

        The framers of RH law are Donks with out knowledge how nature defends itself. Employment is the answer for Pop control. Not Poison pills for the pill will only be rejected. The poor will accept bread of employment but not the poison for them to die.

        Survival is instinct and tens of children is hope of the hopeless.

      • cowan2325

        oh no…i question the people who came up with this bill…if this is going to be good, give us figures…how much is it going to cuton the pop growth that will make the lives of the poor and by how much would it be better?

        Can you explain what you mean by educated countries? Do you mean USA? European countries? Yes, they have all these laws like RH Bill (or their equivalent name for it), and yes, they now have each committed millions of murders through abortions; same sex marriage; euthanasia; divorce; etc. and at the same time have pushed God further and further out of their constitutions and country. Look at the pitiful example they have become? The dollar and the Euro are the weakest they’ve ever been, just hanging on by the skin of their teeth; they have many natural disasters; their national debts are 14 figures long; their freedoms have been taken away from them through corrupt legislation. They are quickly becoming a byword. But, look at the Philippines! We have just included God in our money: ‘Pinagpala ang bayan na ang Diyos ay ang Panginoon'; we are the only nation where divorce is still illegal; one of the few nations where abortions are completely taboo; these are things to be proud of, not ashamed of. Look at the direction of the Philippines in the global arena. We had highest percentage growth rate than any other Asian nation last year; we were the nation least affected by the recent financial upheaval globally; the IMF no longer recognizes the Philippines as a borrowing nation, but a LENDER nation, as we have started to give billions of dollars to other nations – which isn’t wasting money by the way, but increases our influence amongst the nations; not to mention recently discovered oil in LuzViMin area in 15 different sites in which the volume of oil is second only to Saudi, and that is EXCLUDING the oil in the Kalayaan Isles in the West Philippine Sea, which we can harvest immediately (5 contracts have already been signed); not to mention also that we are among the highest natural sources of gold, nickel, copper, manganese, magnetite, deuterium, and billions of barrels of natural gas in the Bedham Rise. Look clearly and see; the nations which have forsaken God, are rapidly declining in wealth and influence, while the Philippines which still has a high respect for God and has high moral standards, is increasing in wealth and influence.

      • Hfxwst

        Well, you missed the point that all of those “educated” countries can feed themselves. You are also confusing religion with superstition as well as imposing a single religion belief on all rather than allowing freedom of choice. The use of contraceptives is a choice.

      Bro. Not really a temporary setback as this is just normal judicial procedure under a democratic system. the anti RH can use all its legal remedies. what is important is the final decision where no more appeal is allowed. And by that time, no more legal impediment can stop the implementation of RH Bill. It’s up to the RC by that time if they are man enough to respect the final decision of the SC and its implementation.

      • jinx

        Thanks for the assurance. I just couldn’t believe it’s the only law that went through a very long process, and after it’s been approved by both executive and legislative branches, we’re still back to the debating table where the opponents are expected to harness once again supernatural causes in their arguments. We’ve heard all their arguments and really, they’re just filled with unfounded, deceitful assertions that don’t merit any more attention. But the SC seemed to entertain another delaying tactics in conformity to their religious preferences and in sync with the precinct brouhaha about the newly-elected pope. I don’t have any problem with the pope. He seems to be much more humble than our own priests. But if one decides for the law of the land, he/she must not be influenced by his religious sentiments.

WHY DON’T WE JUST GO TO THE SC AND GET RID OF OUR REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT AND DO AWAY WITH THE ELECTIONS. This is one time I agree with Estrada these are Hoodlums on robes.

    This is one reason our system of justice is out of wack with reality and common sense and invite cynicism on our people when we have the SC having a veto power on everything Congress does. It is high time Congress and our people put pressure on these unelected people. We need to send a strong signal to the highest court of Republic and they should recognized the effort and constitutional power of congress and the executive branch to the wish of majority. They keep issuing this TRO and trying to legislate and these actions are unconstitutional. I am sick and tired of these people and this body for failing us in the past and continuing their trend. Do they ever THINK about their actions and their lack of courage??

    “There’s a difference between a deist and a theist. The deist (someone who believes in a creator that doesn’t intervene in human affairs) says: ‘It may not make sense without some kind of designer.’ The theist, says: ‘When I tell you what to do, I have god on my side!’ The theist claims he/she could tell what god wants of us, what length should I shave off the end of my penis if I’m a male (or of the clitoris if female), what what the dietary laws ought to be, who I should sleep with and in what position. In other words the theist knows the mind of ‘god’ and when asked “what proof do you have”, he answers “because a holy book says so.”

    And since god doesn’t ever directly appear and say, “Do it this way,” it’s done for him (this is really convenient) by human-representatives who claim to act in his name. So the standard of proof of these representatives must be a great deal higher because the reason why this point is so important for them is because it would mean REAL POWER in the only world that actually exists by these so-called “representatives of God” over the rest of us.” – Hitch

        It would be normal for GMA to appoint people that she can relate to; I do believe she’d choose people with similar beliefs and values.

    Well, that was an easy victory for the church. But come to think of it, PNoy’s administration wavered on the RH bill for so long. Even PNoy himself only cast his lot with the Pro-RH legislators at the last minute when the numbers were already secured. In short, PNoy’s belated support was no longer needed. He was never really intent on standing up for RH. Now that the church is flexing its muscle with Team Patay tarps, PNoy is all the more in no mood to support RH.

    The Pope lost the same case in Brazil. The Bishops will lose it in the Philippines. If the petitions are only based on the usual Catholic religious dogma the SC has no choice but to throw it out and allow the RH Bill to proceed. There is a constitutional separation of Catholic dogma and State in the Philippines. The CBCP lost the Holy Catholic war for supremacy when the constitution was passed – and like any constitution it will take forever to iron it all out. In the meantime the CBCP will whine, squeak and threaten, but they will lose. Pray for better education in the Philippines and to those of blind faith, please take it.

    Even while slaughtering and torturing people during the Inquisition, the Roman Catholic Church never wavered in its belief that God was on its side. In fact, it committed the murderous rampage in the name of Christ.

    The question now is could God be on the side of a fanatical group which only cares that babies be born but the moment they are, they no longer care if these newborn are condemned to a lifetime of misery and poverty?

    And how could these bishops say God is on their side when in insisting that the government bow to their teachings on contraception, they are violating the teaching of Christ to give Caesar what is due Caesar and the teachings of the disciples to respect civil authority?

    The Supreme Court of the Philippines is still tainted with Arroyo lackeys, and are truly pandering to the high and holy hypocrisy of the Catholic Church who has taken one issue of providing free condoms as their ‘bloody’ flag, to bring down the more important attributes of the RH Bill, which the whole world, except the Philippines, has adopted as a road to escaping out of poverty. The Catholic Church should crusade against all those brothels who are catering to foreign creeps looking for sex, the corrupt politicians whose neglect has forced impoverished Filipino women into that trade, and the punishment of their own priests for committing even graver sins against children, before the get hysterical about defeating the notion that some sexually active teenagers might be given a free condom. False self righteousness is another LIE that leads the Nation down the road to repression and despair. Never let their FEAR override REASON.

    • foreignerph

      As one of those “foreign creeps”, I had never had to go to brothels, even if I wanted. They are just lining up (real woman and less real woman) at mall entries, at ATM’s and near Manila hotels asking if I want “six”. Of course they offer room service and on their way out your laptop, camera and wallet are gone.

      The brothels I heard from friends, cater exclusively for Filipinos. Also, the prostitution quarter next to the port of Antwerp is very happy when a ship full of Filipinos arrives. Modest demands, modest size, friendly and good payers ;-)

    • Hfxwst

      But the Pope is infallible! hmmm, could it be it’s really about what you receive, and NOT about what you give?

  • Roger Wilcockson

    The question has to be asked “When are these justices going to inhibit themselves for having biased views based on their personal religious feelings and having a conflict of interest?”. Any decision needs to be based upon each member of the public having the freedom of choice to decide what he/she wants to do with regard to reproductive health and not be dictated to by any religious group – it is a fact that nobody (including Catholics) is being forced by the new law to participate in reproductive health or using condoms so there is no valid reason to challenge the law. It is like an admission that the Catholic church knows that nobody is listening to their anti-RH sermons inside their own churches so they feel that they have to force their own faithful to follow their dictated opinions through using the SC – all they will achieve is more people leaving the dictatorial catholic church and choosing a different democratically minded faith. Sadly, due to the 4 month delay in its implementation, millions of poor who urgently need access to reproductive health because already they cannot support far too large families will create thousands of new born poor who will be destined for a life of poverty – how hypocritical it is for the new pope to tell governments that they need to help the poor that his religion is going out of its way to selfishly create because it wants to control a larger and generally less educated population of poor people. The new pope needs to be reminded that helping the poor that you help to create begins at home – it is not a responsibility that you can wash your hands of and pass on to someone else. And lest we not forget – it is the poor and the weak children (often orphans or abandoned) that have in the past been exploited by the many paedophile Catholic priests who have been publicly exposed and shamed.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OHOD5EA75DBBUH53UKLRXRK764 Mang Teban

      You have what is called a chopsuey logic.
      Bear with me, sir.
      You asked “When are these justices going to inhibit themselves…..blah..blah..blah?” You seem not to know the distinction between personal opinion and jurisprudence. Go find out for the difference. Judges and justices do not put their inner beliefs in making court decisions. They are commanded to look at evidences, testimonies, summaries, and presentation of witnesses. So, you cannot disallow or let justices inhibit themselves…who is going to hear the petitions then? All human beings have discriminating views and opinions.
      You insinuate that the Catholic Church officials do not know that their members are not following what is being said in “anti-RH sermons”. The Catholic Church is probably the only religious institution that DOES NOT COMPEL members to follow blindly. In fact, members who leave the Church do not have to ask permission. Yet, there are still the majority of Filipinos who remain faithful to God. I am not saying that those who go to church are also against the RH law. But, it must be clear though that none of the so-called “surveys” represent the truth. You must be entirely clueless or naive not to think that these surveys were paid by the well-funded pro-RH campaign.

      You lament on the delay that “millions of …poor cannot support large..blah..blah..blah ..new born poor destined to a life of poverty” Then, what have you done? Did you do something that lessen the burden of the poor? Is it the solution to give condoms so the poor can heave a sigh of relief? Will food come to the table when daddy and mommy are having safe sex and no more babies to come? The RH law does not guarantee hunger and poverty to be licked. If you believe that big fallacious lie, then you really are hopelessly blind.
      You call the pope hypocritical to tell governments to help the poor and that “his religion is going out of its way to selfishly create..blah..blah..blah”. That is your territory. If you are biased, you are biased. Nothing worthy to appraise your
      comment on this as untainted and free from malice.
      Finally, you hit the pope again and forewarn that poor orphans and abandoned children are at risk from pedophile-priests…wow, you really have a fixation on priests who are bad. Let me ask you – What is the connection between the RH law being delayed and the possible sexual abuses by priests?
      Huh? You have put too many ingredients in your recipe. You tried to be cute with your insinuations and anti-Catholic remarks.. But, sir, you are a pathetic and pathological confused being. You cannot possibly make a single, decent argument for intellectual discourse. You won’t last a minute inside the Supreme Court if you were given a chance to speak to the justices. You will be declared irrelevant and out of order. Ask your lawyer.

    I am for the all out drive of PNoy against corruption and for good governance but he has to be more circumspect and be not arrogant on his stand for RH and his stand on the Sabah issue. I hope that he is only blinded on his prior commitments to some people on these last two issues and be humble enough in reviewing his initial stand. Corruption is best eliminated thru values and values are learned in the family and when measures such as the RH is allowed to undermine the integrity of families, corruption will never be eliminated. Political measures to counter corruption will be temporary and eventually old players will only be replaced with new players. But if values are well taught in the family, future leaders and mature members of our society produced by families will lessen the incidence of corruption.

    RH LAW is UNCONSTITUTIONAL! RH Law is evil!

    The Filipino nation consists of the born and the unborn. The born refers to:

    a) ourselves, and

    b) our ancestors or ascendants.

    The unborn refers to:

    a) the conceived, and

    b) those to be conceived.

    The 2012 Reproductive Health (RH) Law LIMITS its protection to the unborn from conception. It offers NO PROTECTION to the unborn before conception.

    That is the problem.

    The law

    1. Under the 1987 Constitution, the Government has the sovereign duty to secure to ourselves and our POSTERITY the blessings of independence and democracy (Preamble).

    Comments

    2. Posterity means all descendants of a person from the first (his children), second (grandchildren), third (great grandchildren), fourth, and so on up to the remotest generation (Black’s Law Dictionary).

    3. The Filipino race, like the human race in general, is made up—in constitutional contemplation—of the PAST, PRESENT, and FUTURE generations.

    4. The PAST refers to those who have been BORN but most of whom have passed away.

    5. The PRESENT refers to those who have been BORN and most of whom are still alive. It includes their unborn from conception.

    6. The FUTURE refers to the unborn before conception.

    7. What does the RH Law aim to do? Distribute contraceptives to PREVENT CONCEPTION. Hence, the law directly attacks FUTURE GENERATIONS by preventing their coming into being.

    8. The law, instead of protecting, will actually ANNIHILATE Filipino posterity, with the aggravating circumstance of adding ignominy to the natural effects of the act. There is ignominy or dishonor because the people’s own POLICE POWER is turned or used against them by their own government officials.

    9. The proponents of the law appear to have deliberately omitted the legal distinction between the:

    a) “unborn from conception” in the sense of Civil Law which is confined to FAMILY relations, and

    b) unborn BEFORE conception in the sense of POSTERITY and Constitutional Law which covers INTER-GENERATIONAL relations.

    10. What is the importance of the distinction? The first is subject to prevailing politics and therefor negotiable. The second is entirely above temporary political considerations and therefor non-negotiable.

    11. What are the blessings of independence and democracy which the State must secure to ourselves and our posterity? First, the right of self-determination which defines our distinct identity and way of life as a people and our role as a member of the family of nations. Second, the preservation and perpetuation of mankind —the Filipino race in particular.

    12. How can the State perform this sacred duty in favor of posterity if it implements the RH Law which attacks posterity itself? It cannot. Therefore, the law constitutes a betrayal of public trust.

    Conclusion

    Posterity, as a cherished subject of constitutional protection, has its roots in the 1987, 1973, and 1935 Philippine Constitutions, as well as the Constitution of the United States of America, which served as the model for the former. It is respected by the Supreme Court which refers to it as the “future generations” in the celebrated case of Oposa v. Factoran. And no less than the Charter of the United Nations accord it primordial significance by expressly declaring that the purpose of the organization is to save “succeeding generations” of humanity.

    Consequently, one cannot help but discern and sense that EVIL animates the RH Law. It is something like GENOCIDE by legislation.

    The Filipino people must be vigilant. The big fight for their rightful future is NOW.

      Insinuations will not help the intellectual discussion in this forum. But, yeah, there are comments unworthy even to be published. You are darned lucky to write anything that comes into your hollow cranium because this is the Philippines which is lax in moderating malicious remarks such as yours.

      If you have a grudge against the Catholic Church, take it up with the vicar or pastor in your local parish. Do not be obnoxious to press on your hangups like a screaming banshee.

      As for the Catholics to speak against immoral issues, that is also guaranteed under our nation’s charter. The problem with jackasses and wolves is that they do not think. They only salivate before they lunge on their prey. The common misconception is that the Catholic Church is dominated by the clergy. If you have this perception, you must be dumb. The clergy is only 0.01% (do you know your Math?) of the total population of the universal Catholic Church. Much lower ratio in the Philippines.

    RH LAW is UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Distribution of contraceptives is unlawful!

    The distribution of contraceptives is prohibited by Republic Act No. (RA) 4729 which was approved on June 18, 1966. However, RA 10354, or the 2012 Reproductive Health (RH) Law, commands such distribution.

    That is the problem.

    The law

    1. RA 4729 reads:

    “AN ACT TO REGULATE THE SALE, DISPENSATION, AND/OR DISTRIBUTION OF CONTRACEPTIVE DRUGS AND DEVICES

    SECTION 1. It shall be unlawful for any person, partnership, or corporation, to sell, dispense or otherwise distribute whether for or without consideration, any contraceptive drug or device, unless such sale, dispensation or distribution is by a duly licensed drug store or pharmaceutical company and with the prescription of a qualified medical practitioner.

    SECTION 2. For the purpose of this Act:

    (a) “Contraceptive drug” is any medicine, drug, chemical, or portion which is used exclusively for the purpose of preventing fertilization of the female ovum: and

    (b) “Contraceptive device” is any instrument, device, material, or agent introduced into the female reproductive system for the primary purpose of preventing conception.

    SECTION 3. Any person, partnership, or corporation, violating the provisions of this Act shall be punished with a fine of not more than five hundred pesos or an imprisonment of not less than six months or more than one year or both in the discretion of the Court.

    This Act shall take effect upon its approval.”

    2. The RH Law reads materially as follows:

    a) “… hormonal contraceptives, intra ultrine devices, injectables and other… family planning products and supplies… shall be included in the regular purchase of ESSENTIAL MEDICINES and SUPPLIES of ALL national hospitals…” (Sec. 9)

    b) “The DOH shall procure, distribute to LGUs and monitor the usage of family planning supplies for the whole country. The DOH shall coordinate with all appropriate LGU bodies to plan and implement this procurement and distribution program. The supply and budget allotments shall be based on, among others, COST OF FAMILY PLANNING SUPPLIES.” (Sec. 10)

    Comments

    3. Under RA 4729, the general rule is NOT TO DISTRIBUTE, while the exception is LIMITED DISTRIBUTION only by a duly licensed drug store or pharmaceutical company and with the prescription of a qualified medical practitioner. In other words, the general rule is NEGATIVE, while the exception is a limited POSITIVE.

    4. The obvious ratio legis or reason for the law is that contraceptive drugs and devices the exclusive or primary purpose of which is:

    a) to prevent fertilization of the female ovum, or

    b) to prevent conception

    – during sexual union – defeats the COMMON GOOD, PUBLIC INTEREST, and PUBLIC MORALS.

    5. Insofar as the COMMON GOOD is concerned, the law prohibits the artificial elimination of the PROCREATIVE PURPOSE of the sex act between the married couple contemplated by the civil law.

    6. The implication is that natural birth regulation is allowed.

    7. The law declares that, in general, PREVENTING CONCEPTION through artificial means is essentially WRONG or BAD. The prohibited act is malum in se.

    8. Insofar as PUBLIC INTEREST is concerned, the law seeks to ensure and protect the constitutional existence of Filipino POSTERITY up to the remotest generation in the future.

    9. Insofar as PUBLIC MORALS are concerned, the law upholds the inviolability of the social institution of marriage which legitimizes the natural union between man and woman.

    10. What does the RH Law do? It REVERSES the ratio behind RA 4729.

    a) It allows the artificial elimination of the PROCREATIVE PURPOSE behind the sexual union of the married couple. It also encourages ILLICIT SEX by eliminating any possibility of conception.

    b) It subjects an incalculable number of Filipino POSTERITY to ANNIHILATION BY LEGISLATION.

    c) It violates the sanctity of marriage by ABETTING ILLICIT SEX without risk of parenthood, responsible or otherwise.

    Conclusion

    The Filipino people must realize as soon as possible that their POSTERITY is under serious attack by the imminent implementation of the RH Law. They must raise their sovereign voice and call on their Supreme Court to UNDO what the executive and legislative departments have inflicted on them and their future generations. The spiritual and constitutional war is raging. Every voice counts.

    Of all the reactions we read in the news article about the SC’s order to give both parties more time to make their oral arguments, the one from Ricky Carandang says it all what is on the mind of Pres. Noynoy Aquino – [Communications Secretary Ricky Carandang said the court’s move could affect the country’s efforts to comply with the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals.]

    Never mind what the pro-RH and anti-RH supporters spoke about. The oral arguments will be the basis by the Supreme Court justices to make its final decision on the petitions to declare the RH law unconstitutional.

    The hand that signed the RH law is the only one responsible for contraception to be enacted as a national policy to minimize population growth. P-Noy is where the buck stops. He cannot point to Congress as the one who spoke. He has the power to pass or veto a bill. Therefore, the real issue is this – Will the Philippines as an independent republic kowtow the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals?

    We, as Filipinos, are not subservient to the United Nations. We can say NO and tell the UN that we will define our own Millennium Development Goals. What the UN’s MDG is all about (which was never highlighted in the RH bill debates) is to make the Philippines follow the will of the first-world economies so that the Philippines, like the rest of the 3rd world economies whose population total comprises more than 80% of the world’s population of 7 billion people, will NOT CONSUME THE FOOD PRODUCTION coming mostly from the first-world economies. On the other hand, no less than the UN Sec. General Ban Ki-moon spoke on the occasion of the milestone of 7 Billion people in October 2011 said “There is SO MUCH FOOD FOR EVERYONE and yet there is so much poverty in this world.”

    You do not have to have a high IQ what the UN Secretary General meant. Food produced is more than what the entire people in this world can consume but the distribution of food is not properly done and food producers purposely deprive those who are in hunger and poverty so that prices of goods are kept high and profits are ensured for the wealthy nations.

    Therefore, what we see here in this country is only the tip of the iceberg. The pro-RH congresspeople have been harping on hunger and poverty as reasons why contraception must be implemented. What they are not saying is that they want our country not to complain and just adhere to the BIg Business’ wishes that food will always become scarce and we cannot afford to defy the rich nations or else we will lose their financial aid or be able to borrow dollars from the IMF and World Bank and there won’t be the continued entry of multinational companies to invest in our country. But, I know some of our legislators do not know this either. They only see as far as their eyes are on their pork barrel.

    After 14 years, it can survive to wait another 120 days. Obviously, the SC still hasn’t made a decision regarding the petitions and, with the RH Law facing implementation, they do not want to incur the heat once it does.

    Anyway, after an SC ruling, whatever the decision is, it will finally be over.

    To think that laws takes this long to be finalized. One has to wonder what the SC has been doing with its time.

    The RH Law before becoming a law has been debated in congress for no less than ten years by knowledgeable law makers.

    The supreme court, by issuing a TRO is abusing it’s authority and like a slap in the face of the law makers.

    With the back logs in the supreme court of more important cases, this case should not be entertained.

    Those justices who voted for the TRO must be impeached one by one eventually for abused of their authority.

    • cowan2325

    Typical CBCP. When they lose the RH voting: No comment. When the SC holds it up: God is on our side.

    Uh, wouldn’t it have been easier for God to just not have the voting go for the RH Bill?

  • Jarred Pulido

    Temporary setback.

    • joshmale2004

      Bro. Not really a temporary setback as this is just normal judicial procedure under a democratic system. the anti RH can use all its legal remedies. what is important is the final decision where no more appeal is allowed. And by that time, no more legal impediment can stop the implementation of RH Bill. It’s up to the RC by that time if they are man enough to respect the final decision of the SC.

      • Jane Tan

        Considering that the arguments will now require legal basis and not opinionated responses, I’m much more confident. Unless, of course, our SC has no knowledge our laws.

    The RH law is unconstitutional only on one ground—its sweeping and unconditional prohibiton of abortion. Such an absolute prohibition is unjust and oppressive and infringes the liberties of women. It is a form of slavery and personal compulsion. In some cases, it can be a death sentence to the mother, or to both the fetus and the mother.

    The RH Law is a policy choice, a call by the two political branches of our government—the representatives of the people in a democratic and republican state. While all legislative enactments may be challenged as unconstitutional and are, in principle, subject to judicial review, the purpose of the power of judicial review is really to check and nullify arbitrary, unjust and oppressive laws that violate the Bill of Rights or the acts of any agency or department of government which exceed the powers conferred on them by the Constitution.
    The RH law is definitely not that kind of legislation. The fact alone that most countries have legislated some kind of RH law or another is testimony to its non-contentious nature as far as basic human rights and freedoms are concerned. Thus, the Supreme Court’s TRO against the RH law is a lawless and despotic act, an act of usurpation of the powers delegated by the people to the two other branches of government. It is an exercise of super-legislative power. A power it does not have, and should never have. But there is something worse. It is if—- by that TRO—-the majority of the Justices of the Supreme Court has bent backwards and become obeisant to the declared tenets of a religion.

      No one is singling out Catholics. Some Catholics are singling out themselves by going against this law. No other religion in the Philippines has voiced a complaint against this law. By catering to the claims of the CBCP, even the SC’s action will be deemed unconstitutional for violating the separation of Church and State.

      • Crazy_horse101010

        ihave to ask a question the church says mary was born without sin because jesus couldnt be born with someone who sinned does that mean marys parents were born without sin since she was sinles

      • Ari Putan

        Only Jesus was born without sin..

        But Mary was, just like us, born under reproductive activity of her parents. And she also give birth to other children aside from Jesus by copulating with her husband Joseph.

        The only difference in Mary was that she was virgin the time she conceived Jesus. The rest, she was like other women.

      • Crazy_horse101010

        i know im asking and ive done a lot of research on jesus brothers iincluding james the just who started the first church. yes the bible said mary was a virgin until jesus was born. and god said only one person was born without sin jesus i wanted him to explain the churches views 4 brothers at least 2 sisters even mary called jesus her first born son not only son

      • cowan2325

        the only difference eh? ok…

      • cowan2325

        well, first i think you have to find an answer why HE was born out of a virgin…then maybe you can also find an answer why people were born…why you were born…why everybody else was born…condoms are just a waste of money…

      • Ari Putan

        Mary is mother of Jesus but not mother of God.
        Jesus is 100% human and 100% God….. I believe on that.
        Therefore, Mary was mother of human Jesus but not of God Jesus.
        Because God is the beginning and the end…that is why Jesus said, ‘Before Abraham was, I am”. John 8:58
        Gets mo cowan?

      • cowan2325

        oh…so when the human Jesus said that HE and the Father are one, who is the Father HE is referring to then? HE was born out of a virgin, right?

      • Ari Putan

        The oneness of Jesus and God the Father is in Spirit and not in flesh and at that moment Jesus spoke it, He was speaking as God not as human.
        That is why the Holy Trinity is oneness of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
        By the way, for you to understand this Biblical teaching, you must be born again, otherwise; this is foolishness to those that are not born of the Spirit.

      • cowan2325

        and was it the human Jesus or the GOD Jesus who spoke that HE and the Father are one?

      • xrisp

        Jesus loved His mother so much. Could we not do the same to His Mother? When we show respect to Mother Mary, we imitate Christ in His respect to His Mother. Could we imagine how the Holy Family spent a day in their life? How about when Mother Mary was still nursing the baby Jesus? How would we view the moments that passed? Wonderful isn’t it? Reflect and contemplate on this brother. As Mary cared for Christ in His earthly life so she cares now for all of us as her children. She became our universal Mother when Christ, at the foot of the cross, entrusted John to Mary as her son and Mary to John as his Mother. Anyway, if this event may just be a theatrical play for you, just remember that Mother Mary loves us all and she is our most powerful intercessor with God always pleading for mercy for all of us because of our sinfullness. Mother Mary, since she was “full of grace,” was the perfect creation otherwise she would not be worthy to carry Christ, the Son of God, in her womb. The Incarnation of Christ is a mystery and one could be enlightened only approaching this mystery through deep faith. If this appears repugnant to your senses then I intend no further discussion on this matter. Just remember again that we are all children of Mother Mary. May God have mercy on us all.

Why not just zipped up his mouth and avoid dividing the flock a great many of them support the RH bill, now a law. What happens if after sometime the Supreme Court upholds the law?

    The SC cannot possibly find the RH law unconstitutional based on anything about abortion.

    If they deem that contraceptives covered by the RH law are abortion, as the antis claim, then that would affect not just the RH law, but all existing users of the contraceptives. They would in effect be making contraception unconstitutional.

    The RH law is not legalizing any new methods or contraceptives. Everything in it is legal and available at the right price right this moment. If you say it’s abortion, then you should be suing all the men and women who use and buy contraceptives right now for abortion.

    This is gonna go nowhere, there is no argument against it

    The Catholic Bishops are rejoicing for the TRO against the RH bill and are claiming it was the work of God? Are they crazy? It is the work of the devil instead. Even the Vatican has admitted that the Catholic religion has lost thousands of members because of the way the Church promulgate their canon law. Do these bishops think they can feed the millions of homeless kids, even without healthcare and clothing if the Supreme Court permanently reject the RH law? It is a scenario I dont like to witness. More nude children roaming the streets born by poor couples without jobs, more kids out of school and more and more people suffering from famine, hunger and the likes because of over population. The Church is the devil here. If they can assure that couples (esp. poor couples in the rural areas) will practice rhythm method religiously and wont have children again, then I would voluntarily join the church. But….. paano mo pipigilan ang mga mahihirap na magasawa na maganak ng maganak dahil kalimitan, pagsapit ng gabi sa baryo, matutulog na ang mga ito at ang kalimitan, it ends in sexual activities.

      The Supreme Court of the Philippines is still tainted with Arroyo lackeys, and are truly pandering to the high and holy hypocrisy of the Catholic Church who has taken the issue of providing free condoms as their ‘bloody’ flag, to bring down the more important attributes of the RH Bill, which the whole world, except the Philippines, has adopted as the road to escaping poverty. The Catholic Church should crusade against all those brothels who are catering to foreigners looking for sex, the corrupt politicians whose neglect has forced impoverished Filipino women into that trade, and the punishment of their own priests for committing even graver sins against children, before the get hysterical about defeating the notion that some sexually active teenagers might be given free condoms. False self righteousness is another LIE that leads the Nation down the road to repression and despair. Never let their FEAR override REASON.

    My question to those opposing the RH law is this…. How many Filipinos are there now in the Philippines?

    Not so fast in rejoicing CBCP. Do not take advantage of the Pope’s opinion on birth control. He is only a human being. He could be wrong about his opinion. Binay extended an invitation to the Pope to visit the Phil. If he does, hopefully, CBCP will show the Pope how the poor people live in the Phil. Inform the Pope how often these poor families with tons of kids eat and what they eat in a day. Take him around to visit the homes for the orphanage. Give him example of why student Kristel Tejada committed suicide because the family could not afford to pay her tuition fees. How the family (7 all together) has been several times kicked out of their dwellings because they could not pay the rent. This is only one good example. There are millions more.

    Between 5M to 15M (1% to 3% of the world’s population) are estimated to have died as a result of these wars.

    51 And behold, one of those who were with Jesus reached out his hand and drew his sword and, striking the body servant of the high priest, cut off his ear.
    52 Then Jesus said to him, Put your sword back into its place, for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.

    Put the Pope to “The Question” on RH. Then lets see who’s side God is on. History has continually shown the catholic church to be corrupt and devilish. The Pope says take care of the poor but he only takes money from them and gives only false hope. This is not Gods way people… this is catholicism.

    Forgive these priests Lord for they don’t know what they’re doing!

    rejecting religion is a rejection of false prophets… not a rejection of God

  • Dawn Dare

    The financial and political backing of the zealots of the Opus Dei are on their side, not God.

    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world he doesn’t exist in the Catholic Church.
