  3. CBCP preach salvation for your people so that they will be saved, if you are truly God’s missionaries. Inject to them JOHN 3:16. In Mark 12:38 says: Beware of teachers of religion! For they love to wear the robes of the rich and scholarly, and to have anyone bow to them as they walk through the markets (Reference: The Way: The Living Bible Illustrated). RH Bill is not your business. Those behind your cause do not know the contents of RH Bill. Being with you, they feel save of their sins.


    • The controversy about this rh bill have taken up much time. Akala ko po ba ang goal ng mga politicians and other higher officials is to meet the better good of everyone. So why not think of a common goal. Instead na magdebate tungkol sa rh bill na ito, bakit hindi na lang sila magkaisa, and revise the rh bill that would promote a better development for all of us. Kailangan ba talagang either ipasa lang or ibasura? Bakit hindi na lang sila magharmonize. Meron na mang mga mabubuting laman yung rh bill na pwedeng makatulong. So sana po, maisipan na ng ating mga leaders na hindi kailangang magtalo. Magtulong tulong na lang sila na irevise ang rh bill so that everyone will have a benefit from it.

    • Iribesa na lang ang RH bill ng mga punong lider nang matamo ng lahat ang kagustuhan ng bawat isa!

    The church is pushing for the rejection of the RH Bill (Responsible Parenthood) saying ( in the pulpit and elsewhere) that it is all about ABORTION. Abortion including unintended abortion is ALREADY punishable as a serious crime under the New Revised Penal Code of the Philippines. There is Nothing in RH bill that even suggest that abortion is among the choices for mothers. The church is spreading this lie so that the Philippine hierarchy gets praises from the Vatican. The Pontifical Commission on Birth Control already submitted their final report on 1966. The report said that “artificial birth control is not evil and Catholic couples should be allowed to decide for themselves.” This majority report signed by 72 theologians, physicians, with the executive committee of 16 bishops and 7 cardinals was rejected by Pope aul VI. Instead adopted the dissenting opinion of 4 (four bishops

  5. This law is being pushed by the American government to be part of our constitution, partly they want to strengthen their economy by the amount that they will be exporting for their contraceptive drugs via american drug companies, and they really want to control the philippine population not because of overpopulation but they don’t want our natural resources to be used. All I am saying is that we might suffer more if we push this law, besides an individual person can take already this drugs without a law. Law is a waste of taxpayers money.

    hindi ako sang ayon sa rh bill dahil ang contraceptives ( e.g. pills) hindi lang nakakacause ng breast cancer kung di pati narin abnormal baby. kung maipsa ang rh bill baka after 10 yrs. produkto natin abnormal babies at ibang immoralidad lalo tayong magkaproblema pagdating ng panahon kung saan tayo kahit kailan hindi matutulongan talaga ng gobyerno. buhay at ang moral pinag uusapan dito.

  9. Bicolana girl

    As a school leader i could see that Sex education needs to be implemented as early as possible especially this time that modern technology is invading the minds of children. They must be guided accordingly reagradless of age..

    Sa amin na po ang pagpapasya…now alam na namin ang makakabuti…tama na ang mga datos na wala na naman kaming ordenaryong mamamayan idea kung saan nyo pinolut ang mga iyon…Fathers go back to the ultar and strenghten the teaching of values…because you’ll never be a real parent at the end of the day kami prin ang mag papasya…

  11. Ephraim Toche

    …Salamat ABS-CBN for the opportunity to get the entire country get access to be informed…nasa amin na po ang pagpapasya…ngayon alam na namin kung sino ang may sensiridad sa seryosong usapin tongkul sa RH bill. Ipasa na po ang serious penalty for ” Irresponsible parenthood” Ang tatalino ng mga taga Anti- RH bill…ibigay sa kanila ang mga batang walang makain….

  12. Is it the idea to teach Grade V students that Adam had sexual intercourse with Eve? Why not use the children of the exponents of this proposal as experimental subjects for moral degradation?

  13. joshua edwin daulo

    hindi solusyon sa kahirapan ng tao ang RH BILL dapat ang nhasa legislative branch ng gobyerno ay dapat sugpuin ang mga kurap na tao na nanunungkulan sa gobyerno at hindi dapat ipasa ang rh bill dahill pera gagastusin dito hamakin mo ilang billion ang gagastusin sa BILL na yan SA WALANG KWENTANG BILL NA YAN e kung ang pera ay gagastusin nalang sa mga prebadong paaralan hospital at ETC…..

  14. irene pontillas

    no to RH bill! we only owed our life to God so we don’t have any rights to kill life. hindi problema ang populasyon kung meron tayong sapat na edukasyon..put the budget of the philippines sa mga mas mahahalagang bagay.

  15. The problem is lack of productivity. The solution is productivity, and this involves four factors: (a) land, (b) labor, (c) capital, and (d) entrepreneur. Population accounts for the second factor of production. What then is the point in reducing the manpower component of productivity? Our policy-makers appear to be misguided. They bark at the wrong tree. The reason why we remain poor is that capital is not circulated. Our OFW’s bring in almost a trillion pesos yearly, but the government does not have a policy on how to harness this money, at least to create jobs for returning OFW’s. This money is being siphoned by the big banks to their headquarters in Makati, where it is circulated. If this is allowed to circulate in the provinces, interest rates will go down, capital access will increase, and jobs will be created.
