The Fight Against RH Bill Continues: KILL THE BILL!
Apart from surrounding himself with well-known Marxists and progressives, President Noynoy Aquino recently showed his determination to support the fascistic, evil Reproductive Health bills authored by socialists in Congress. Reports said Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. said he is prepared to face the rage of the Catholic church in making sure the bills on reproductive health pending in the House of Representatives are tackled extensively and voted on by lawmakers.
Let me make it very clear that I don’t side with the Catholic church’s argument against this infamous RH bill. The Church argued that this legislative proposal is anti-Life and against the will of God. This faith-based argument must fail. I believe we must oppose this evil, fascistic legislative proposal because it runs counter to our individual rights and freedom.
I find it very disturbing that even the speaker of the House is convinced that the reproductive health bills must be taken seriously that he and his cohorts “are willing to take the risk.” The mythical overpopulation mantra of the socialists in Congress and of their progressive and environmentalist cohorts is not the main issue here. The main issue is individual rights and freedom.
Socialist Rep. Edcel Lagman, the main proponent of this anti-population bill, once said that his proposal “simply recognizes the verifiable link between a huge population and poverty.” He believes that “unbridled population growth stunts socio-economic development and aggravates poverty.”
It’s not really surprising that all known leftists in Congress do their very best to keep their evil, anti-Freedom proposal alive and to see to it that it is enacted into law. For instance, partylist group Gabriela recently filed a comprehensive reproductive health bill, the sixth measure filed in the House of Representatives, which seeks to make reproductive health care a “prime responsibility” of the government.
Consider this Inquirer report:
This developed as Minority Leader and Albay Representative Edcel Lagman reiterated his call to President Benigno Aquino III to certify as urgent the pending RH measures to make true to his statement that he was open to supporting couples who would choose artificial means of family planning.
“He should concretize this by endorsing the RH bill,” Lagman, who authored another version of the RH bill, said, adding that he is pleased that the President made such advocacy on family planning.
In a separate statement, Iloilo Representative Janette Garin, who also has her own RH bill, lauded the President for his stance, stressing it is time for Congress to pass a reproductive health law.
Filing the Comprehensive Reproductive health bill, Gabriela partylist Representatives Luz Ilagan and Emmi de Jesus said the measure is seen to offer health care services that will basically benefit women, especially the marginalized.
“Advancing reproductive health rights in a comprehensive, available, accessible, acceptable, and democratic manner is a long-overdue mandate of the Philippine government to its female population,” the bill said.
It added that there should be no bias for either modern or natural methods of fertility management in advocating reproductive health.
The bill also provides for regular educational seminars and reproductive health education for students.
In the workplace, it ensures that employers are obliged to protect women workers handling or working with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm.
According to the bill, reproductive health care “is a prime responsibility of the national government,” putting the Department of Health at the helm of its implementation.
It is very much clear that the RH bill politicians want bigger government. Their altruistic proposal must be opposed because it will only lead to the gradual diminution of our freedom. Their statist plan will certainly lead to fascism or dictatorship.
I wrote in a previous blog titled Reproductive Health Care is NOT a Right the following:
This RH Bill is a proposal to breach reality and that moral concept of equality under the law or the Constitution. In a society claiming to be semi-free, this bill is a mockery of people’s freedom and happiness. A welfare legislation that conspires to diminish our rights and freedom has no room in a free society. This collectivist proposition is only possible in a statist or socialist society, where the mode of production and the goods and products created and produced by the people are all owned by the state. Under this system, everybody is enslaved to everybody. Under a statist regime, there’s no such thing as individual rights. Every individual in a socialist or communist society must work for the benefit of his country. Such a system is doomed to failure. Mao Tse Tung perfected this same ideological scam during his experimental “Great Leap Forward” wholeheartedly supported by the Chinese in the hope of propelling China to success and even exceeding the steel-making output of America and Great Britain. In less than a decade, in a country where education, health care and almost all basic needs were provided by the statist government, more than 20 million Chinese died in famine and starvation. Now this is our only direction if we continue to embrace this altruist-collectivist trend.
I also stated in a previous blog titled The Psychology of the Anti-Population Cult the following:
Population is not the enemy of global progress. Population can only waylay global development and prosperity if we let these anti-population advocates and environmentalists dictate a form of social system under which we would all live. If a social system were based on the morality of altruism, the successful and those who are willing to produce wealth would be reduced to mere slaves. The men who cherish individual rights and freedom will not exist in a society that enshrines sacrifice and altruism as a social system. The political slogan of these environmental- and population-altruists is that Marxist credo— “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.” A society that holds that man is a tool for the needs and welfare of others regards population growth as evil that must be condemned. If people begin to think that man is a helpless animal who has no capacity to improve his life on earth, they would not hesitate to resort to brute force to achieve their altruistic goal.
This is a battle of ideas. We are engaged in an ideological war against the collectivists and statists in this country. We should fight their reproductive health bills and defend our rights and freedom before it’s too late!
