Welcoming the 100 Millionth Baby

107

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pro-life Philippines would like to officially welcome the 100 millionth Pinoy baby named Chonalyn, born this week. How the government has determined this baby as the 100 millionth, we do not know. Regardless,  whether the baby really is the proverbial hundred millionth child or not, we would like to tell Chonalyn: we are glad that you were born. Happy birthday to you!

Our RH supporters, however, don’t seem too happy with  Chonalyn’s birth. Ever the party poopers, they accompany reports of her birth with their sense of impending doom due to ‘overpopulation’ and all those other hard words even they don’t understand. In short, they’re using her birth in order to push RH and the population control agenda once again!

Poor girl. Not even one week into this world, and she is already being used and politicized. But let’s not forget, the same can be said of their treatment of the poor in general and their “eradicate poverty by giving the poor contraceptives” tactic. Here’s what Edcel Lagman wants done, in lieu of Chonalyn’s birth:

1. Government extension and grant of reproductive health-care, services, and commodities to the marginalized sectors who are willing acceptors of RH and family-planning programs.

2. The procurement by the Department of Health of medically safe, legal, effective and nonabortifacient contraceptives and devices for distribution to the poor and to the local governments.

3. The retraining of barangay health workers so that they could competently assist in the implementation of the RH law.

4. The immediate formulation of an RH curriculum by the Department of Education for enrolled adolescent pupils and students, which may be adopted by private schools, so that RH good practices and beneficent results can be instilled early among the young.

5. Extensive training of teachers who will handle RH classes for adolescents in the coming school years.

6. Adequate outlays for RH for inclusion in the National Expenditure Program to be submitted to the Congress by the President after the State of the Nation Address.

7. Meaningful and responsive appropriations by the Congress starting 2015 to fully implement the RH law.

Mr. Lagman, the former congressman who was the godfather of the RH law in the last congress, must be in dreamland. How can they ask the court to implement the RH law when they have yet to provide everyone an IRR (implementing rules and regulations) which, we all know, is necessary for the law to see implementation?

Our pro RH friends also have one other problem to deal with: that the Supreme Court has left the FDA to decide which contraceptives are or are not abortifacients. Since the SC has determined that any contraceptive that has  abortifacient effects, whether primary or secondary, cannot be distributed to the people, they might be forced to settle with giving away condoms only.

Recently, we sent letters to the DOH and FDA asking them to determine with finality which contraceptives out there in the market do not have abortifacient effects. Since they were required to answer our queries, they did so but generally skirted the issue.

Here’s a copy of the correspondence between Pro-Life and DOH, and Pro-life and FDA:

LYCA GAIRANOD

http://www.pep.ph/guide/photos/4752/lyca-gairanod-the-voice-kids-champion-winning-moments/num/2

Lyca Gairanod overcame so much pressure at her tender young age in order to win The Voice Kids, a popular singing contest. Her story is the story of so many of our poor: they worked hard in order to make ends meet, even if they didn’t have a roof over their heads. Now, the family can enjoy being together under their new house, which was part of prize for winning the contest, along with cash, and a recording contract.

Like so many poor people, she had to work, and work hard, in order to succeed and make ends meet finally. Our politicians have the gall to preen and sashay their way to the SONA wearing very expensive outfits despite the poverty around them, and we could only shake our heads in disbelief. That picture of them looking pristine and regal, contrasted with the poor who have sent so many text votes to enthrone Lyca as their champion – if only to forget that they themselves are poor, even for a day or two – that’s the real situation we have right now. A government that does not give a hoot about the poor, except to hand them contraceptives so they don’t  breed and ‘overpopulate’ this country.

Chonalyn will suffer the same fate, most probably.
