The ugly face of population control

opinions2-460x360

                        While the Solicitor General and his legal team are trying very hard to convince us that state-mandated contraception under the Reproductive Health Law is not population control, an aggressive vaccination campaign among the poor is reported to be causing an alarming rise in infant mortality in the countryside. Last weekend I listened to reports from family life workers assembled in Cebu City and came home feeling that a terrible crime was being committed against our people in the name of public health by the same government that is…

local news

August 14, 2013  Posted by: mongladz The Morality of the Pork Barrel Many of you, our Catholic faithful, have come to us your pastors seeking our moral guidance on the issue of the pork barrel. It is the object of an ongoing investigation due to accusations of corruption being hurled against some of our public officials.

How many traditional politicians have run and overspent and even killed for the sake of millions they will get as pork barrel once elected? We your Church pastors are not…

Where Fr. Bernas is right and where he’s wrong

opinions

By Francisco S. Tatad In a column on the Reproductive Health Law (PDI,July 29), our esteemed constitutionalist-friend Fr. Joaquin G. Bernas, S. J. complains  about having had to listen for 10 long hours (on the Internet) to the less than “scintillating” oral arguments on the validity of the RH Law before the Supreme Court en banc. Many who sat through the July 9 and July 23 sessions felt the same. But the petitioners’ counsels could not have shortened the proceedings.  At the opening, I spoke for  eight minutes, without any interpellation; but Prof. Maria Concepcion Noche  of Alliance for the…

Fullness of Life: Remembering Fr. Vic

full

  Rev.Fr. Vicente Cajilig, O.P., passed away  at the age of 63. For many of us in Pro-Life Philippines, it is as if we were orphaned. Again. Twice in two years. September 2012, our charismatic and beloved foundress Sr. Mary Pilar  Verzosa, RGS died unexpectedly. We were all shocked by her passing, perhaps because we were unprepared. We were always confident that what ever happened, Sr. Pilar was always there with us, for us. Sr. Pilar has always been the heart and soul of Pro-Life Philippines. She started this advocacy close to 40 years ago, and in many ways she…
