Literally speaking, I won’t bother to shed my thoughts with regards to this matter. First, I’m single I don’t worry my financial status for now for I don’t have a responsibility aside from myself.
Over the months or so, I always heard in the television news, read in the online news the propose of RH Bill (Principal Sponsor of the said bill is Meriam Defensor-Santiago). I’m into it. As you can see, the population in the Philippines is rapidly growing. People doesn’t have control in making/producing babies. And the entire world are suffering from economic crisis.
This morning, I read the article from Inquirer.net that one senator (Vicente Sotto 111) opposed the RH Bill, one of his reason was that this reproductive health bill:
“affiliated with an international organization advocating for abortion and whose founder was a known champion of “eugenics.”
I read from Wikipedia the life of Margaret Sanger (the founder of American Birth Control League). I fully understand too, why she really pursue the use of birth control. She was also opposed on the said abortion. You see, her mother went through 18 pregnancies and only 11 of them live births. Imagine!
For me, using birth control doesn’t mean taking into abortion. This mean, you enjoy your sexual life without worrying for the consequences because no life will begun. Aside from that, it helps also to women because they can plan the better time when to get pregnant. They can give more time to their family, enjoy every time with it.
We know reproductive health has advantages and disadvantages. I do respect too if people against with it, that’s their perception. But we need to educate that this bill will help protect our women, also it helps our society as well as the entire nation. We need to educate the people who live in the far areas. Like those who live in the mountains. We cannot simply, imply to them to use this kind of contraceptives.
But looking at the scenario, if we people won’t plan our family well. we will be one of the world’s populated country. As early as possible, we need to have discipline and have a good family planning.
SUPPORT RH BILL.
