When the RH Bill seeks to open the doors to abortifacient contraceptives and abortion on demand under the guise of women’s reproductive health, is that a sign of true care and concern for women’s health? What about the other aspects of trauma involved, or the side effects, not to mention the moral consequences involved? Such a [RH] Bill therefore is questionable as regards its sincere concern for our people’s good, here or in the hereafter.
Consider too the offers being made by interested agencies in the pharmaceutical or medicinal field that may somehow be involved in the issue of reproductive sexuality. Then comes in therefore the corrupting factor of money which is being flaunted shamefully without any qualms of conscience, as if God were blind to these hidden agenda. Is that true concern for womanhood? We desire a bright future for a population that is young, alive, peaceful, productive, and hopeful.
That Bill therefore hides its face because, under the guise of population control; in reality it schemes to terminate life by allowing abortifacients, and abortion is in actuality an integral part of the culture of death that will not favor the Philippine growth and population but lead to its decimation and extinction. Imagine those great populations of the world that may be fast disappearing and self-destructing, because of disregard for God’s original decree: “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and conquer it” (Gen. 1:28). We will miss the children’s cries and laughter, when it’s the coughing elderly folk that we may generally get to hear.
