Are you Pro or Anti the RH Bill?

One of the hottest topic in the Philippines today is the issue on RH Bill(Reproductive Health Bill).

What is RH Bill?
The Reproductive Health bill, popularly known as the RH bill, is a Philippine bill aiming to guarantee universal access to methods and information on birth control and maternal care. There are presently two bills with the same goals: House Bill No. 4244 or An Act Providing for a Comprehensive Policy on Responsible Parenthood, Reproductive Health, and Population and Development, and For Other Purposes introduced by Albay 1st district Representative Edcel Lagman, and Senate Bill No. 2378 or the Reproductive Health Act introduced by Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago.

While there is general agreement about its provisions on maternal and child health, there is great debate on its key proposal that the Filipino taxpayer and the private sector will fund and undertake widespread distribution of family planning devices such as birth control pills (BCPs) and IUDs, as the government continues to disseminate information on their use through all health care centers. Private companies and the public and private elementary and secondary school system will be required to participate in this information and product dissemination as a way of controlling the population of the Philippines.

The nation is divided. There are people who are against on the Bill. Most of them are Catholics and priests. There are also some Filipinos who are Pro for the Bill.

The anti RH Bill are against because of the moral issues and on the teachings of the Catholic church. Moreover controlling the population is not the way of solving our problems with the poverty. It is the Philippines problem on the corrupt officials.

The pro people emphasize that it is important that the bill will be passed so that our population will be controlled which is one of the reason of our poverty. Filipinos should be educated and should become responsible parents.

As of this time the bill is still pending. Whatever will be the outcome we hope that it will be for the common good.
