Sept 7 on Rock Ed Radio >> LIFE CHOICES

Let's talk about the Reproductive Health bill. Now on the table. Talked about in Congress, debated on in religious circles. Somehow discussed in schools.

What do you know of the Reproductive Health bill?
Do you support or oppose it?

Undecided?
Okay, at the very least - stop ignoring it.

Let's talk about this. Frank and forward will be the night's attitude. So please, join the conversation.

The Reproductive Health Advocacy Network (RHAN) will give us an overview of the bill. Express their opinion. Then perhaps we can decide from there.

The following guests will be there to talk to us: Elizabeth Angsioco (SecGen, RHAN also Natl Chair -Democratic Socialist Women of the Phils, DWSP), Earnest Zabala (RHAN), Ramon San Pascual (Exec Dir Philippine Legislators' Committee on Population Devt, PLCPD) and Kiko de la Tonga (youth organizer, Pinagsamang Lakas ng Kababaihan at Kabataan, PILAKK)

Rock Ed Radio believes that we should never oppose nor support something without (even just a marginal amount of) understanding it.

So post. Comment. Complain. Choose.

Ask.

Sabi sa school namin na ang RH daw ang hindi lahat okey, kasi may ibang parts daw na may provision na magpa-abort, totoo ba ito? Eh hindi talaga ako naniniwala sa abortion, pero gusto ko sana ng may kaalaman ang mga tao sa pagpa-plano ng pamilya. Ano ba ang mga kung baga favorrite parts ninyo doon at ano ang puwede pang pag-aralan o palitan?

xxpach said...

okay lang magpakarami (lalo na kung katoliko), pero un responsable lang ang dami. basta kaya mo silang buhayin lahat, okay yun.

moogle said...

di ba po malinaw naman sa constitution na separate state ang church at government? hindi ba yun maintindihan ng church o nagbubulag-bulagan lang sila? yung ibang officials naman bakit parating dapat isaalang-alang ang sasabihin ng church? pangpa-good shot? ang labo..

i support reproductive health bill. sa status ng ating bansa ngayon, parang need na for every couple to engage in family planning.
but then, ang problema nito, marami ang hindi lubusang nkakaalam sa content ng bill, including me.
so i guess, bago ipasa ang to, kelangan munang i-educate ang people regarding the said bill.

aabot kaya ang simbahan sa tamang tugma ng panahon?

Pransis said...

Going through the short article posted by Inquirer on the internet, mukha namang maganda ang laman ng bill.

Siguro kailangan lang talagang maiparating at maipaintindi 'yung nilalaman nito sa mga tao (lalu na sa iba na medyo over-reacting pagdating na sa reproductive health, family planning etc.)

I particularly like 'yung isang line from Congressman Lagman:
"The bill is not antilife. It is proquality life."

Sandbox said...

You haven't even gleaned on the proliferation of STD's. Some STD's don't even exhibit symptoms for some people who become carriers of these diseases. The most effective way to prevent these diseases are abstinence or condoms. If the youth found out how easy it was to catch these diseases and what they do to your body, they may think twice about having sex.

mahirap magreact dahil hindi naman inihahayag ng klaro kung ano ba talaga ang nilalaman ng bill na 'to, lalong-lalo na sa mga younger generations since maaaring kami ang maaapektuhan nito kung maipapasa man ito. kaya sana, bago gumawa ng mga pagpapapirma kung sang-ayon o hindi, maging edukado sana ang mga Pilipino tungkol dito. Wag pairalin ang kabobohan.

felixcute said...

Pano naman kung mali yung pagtuturo ng sex education ng mga schools?

azea said...

Kelangan talaga ng sex education sa lahat, especially sa youth.

Anonymous said...

Maayung gabi. Mabuti nalang we can hear you live on the radio. Where's Lourd? Sabi ng lolo ko, sex education encourages the youth sa pre-marital sex.

Pano po kung bawasan nalang ang tao? Kasi nga po sobrang dami na.

jeffrey of davao said...

Good evening sa lahat. Ano po ba ang mga objections ng Romas Catholic Church?

boysaksak said...

Ano bang stand ng simbahan sa RH bill? Ano bang problema ng simbahan, bakit galit na galit ang church sa anything about family planning?

felixcute said...

Hi Tado and Gang! Tanong ko lang - ano ang kaso ng nag-aabort? At nagpapaabort? Ano ang parusa sa kanila?

rayzelle said...

Then it's a good bill pala. Do you think may iba pang rason sa pagtutol nito aside from religion?

rakenrol said...

Hi Gang. What a choice of co-host. Nobody could be better. If Lourd's listening, for sure,he'll agree with me. Tado will make a great host.

zeus said...

I don't think I agree that if you don't support a big family, you are allowed to do so. How about your obligation to the environment? Population really takes its toll on earth.

adrian said...

I believe in the RH bill in order for our people to have modern knowledge in family planning. Kaya sana naman wag na masyadong nakikialam ang simbahan.

king said...

May guests po ba kayo from the religious group? Sila kasi talaga ang ayaw sa contraceptives eh.

Anonymous said...

May mga tao po kasi na gustong i-give up ang sarili, isa sa reason is ang hirap ng buhay at lalo na siguro dahil sa gobyerno.

android said...

What does the RH bill have in store for couples who already have many children?

azea said...

Immoral ba ang pag-aabort?

jeffrey of davao said...

Bakit po ba ang karamihan sa mga contraceptives ay pambabae?

felixcute said...

Anong bansa ba ang legal ang abortion? Ano naman ang feedback ng simbahan nila?

Anonymous said...

Siguro one of the reasons is hindi na madagdagan yung pera ng kani-kanilang simbahan. Reaksyon ko po yan sa tanong.

Anonymous said...

Gusto ko pong malaman kung ligtas pong gamitin ang contraceptive sa tulad ko pong 14 yrs old lang. Wala po ba itong bad effect?

Gina of Cebu said...

I'm a Catholic pero somehow against ako sa mga leaders ng church namin.

Anonymous said...

Speaking of condoms, may kwento sa kin ang mom ko na may nakita syang mga high school boys na nagbibilihan ng condoms sa drugstore nung Valentine's Day.

boysaksak said...

Everytime I buy condoms sa drugstore the girls in the counter always give me a funny look, why is that? Are w e Filipinos really sexually immature?

Kay aba natin maging tulad ng China? Yun kasi lagi nila sinabi na imbis kontrolin ang population, gawin itong tool to progress.

Accdg to Rousseau, in general, the church always teaches to love more the kingdom of God than their own republic. In general, I have nothing against the teching of Christ.

riot gal - zambales said...

Dapat talaga grade school pa lang may sex educ. kasi ngayon late na yung pagtuturo nila. Mas marami pang alam ngayon yung mga students kesa sa teacher na magtuturo about that.

Anonymous said...

Nageeducae nga po? kaso lang saan? sa sarap lang po siguro pero pano naman yung hirap? matututo kaya? kailan? sorry po sa message ko ma'm Gang kung mali man yun.

Magandang gabi po. Ang katotohanan sa ating lipunan eh hindi na natin maalis ang pre-marital sex sa ilang kabataan. May konsepto si Plato na separation of the Church and State luma na pero magagamit pa.

Anonymous said...

May possible danger na ba magpaanak ngayon sa kumadrona? Bakit ba walang 'kumadrono'? hehe

zeus said...

Would the bill serve as a basis for a separate agency that would be in charge with dispensing the services to the masses or would it still be through DOH, etc?

pepeng buraot said...

The best way of family planning is "ABSTINENCE".

motley said...

Baka po maaari nating gamitin ang people's initiative na nasa consti po sec. 32, art. 6.

adrian said...

The church is bragging about abstinence. but they miss one reality: anything can happen.

joycieluvspink said...

If were going to think about this bill, isn't it promoting "indirect abortion" ?
Kahit sabihin nating hindi nito pinapatay ang hindi pa naiisisilang na sanggol, ay kumikitil pa rin ito ng buhay. Sa oras na magtagpo ang sperm at egg cell ay nafefertilize ito at nagkakaroon ng panibagong buhay. Ano ang ginagawa ng mga contraceptives dito? Kinikitil nila ang mga ito para hindi maform na baby... Parang pinatay na rin nila ang hindi pa nasisilang na sanggol. Hindi nito hinayaang magdevelop ang nasabing fertilized egg... :(
Kaya mas maganda pa rin ang natural family planning. Wala na itong masamang epekto sa katawan, nakasisiguro ka pang walang buhay ang nawawala...
