using contraceptives is killing people.


Didn't read that much into the bill, but it looks great. Seems to be about informing the public about how to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
I think in 5 years or less you're going to feel a whole lot differently about contraceptives.
Anyway, being Filipino != pro life and use of contraceptives has nothing to do with abortions except for the fact that it can prevent the situation from arising where an abortion is a possibility. Contraceptives don't kill people.

Wow. I just read up on it, but I never thought of the Phillipines not having sex education in school, or accessibility to birth control. I believe giving everyone the information and the ability to do as they wish when it comes to their reproduction as a good thing. There is nothing harmful in the knowledge to care for oneself...it seems a sin to me that someone wouldn't have an option to prevent themselves from having children if they don't want them, or can't care for them; where does that leave the child?
Birth control pills and condoms are not considered murder (to the OP)...the pills actually prevent a woman from ovulating, thus you do not even release an egg to be inseminated. Of course they are not 100% effective, and there are still women that get pregnant while on birth control (like my sister), however, she stopped taking the pills immediately upon realizing she was pregnant, and they had no ill effect on the child. Condoms basically do the same on the guys end...keeping the egg from being inseminated.

I know the Catholic church frowns on birth control, and I can't really speak on that topic (since I am Methodist). Anyways, birth control pills also have other uses...like in priming the ovaries in the result of infertility. In my case, I will be on the pills for a couple months and then put on hormones so that I can ovulate regularly. But in women with intense cramping and other fertility issues (endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrom, etc), birth control pills can help in making the symptoms less, and stop excessive bleeding. And of course, condoms do decrease the risk of contracting STD's from multiple sexual partners. I don't really believe in having sex with anyone you come by, so one night stands aren't my thing...but I did have sex before I was married, with people that I loved and was in a relationship with. And we were not ready for children, so birth control was the option for us.
Anyways, I think the RH bill sounds like a smart thing. Especially since from what I was reading, nowhere in the bill did it say people HAVE to use birth control, so it is still a choice for the individual person.

im not against it.I think the country is not anymore in control with either abstinence or the natural method. Therefore, if it if it stops overpopulation and spread of hiv in the country, then im in favor of it. But it shouldnt be promoted for the sheer reason of stopping unwanted pregnancies, that is already undermining life.
