RH Bill... shh don't say bad words

RH Bill, RH Bill, you're the hardest thing to say. Like Sex, dick, cunt and vagina, you're like the new vulgar word of the century. Or at least, the Philippine century.

Even the president doesn't want to have anything to do with you and will call you by any other name, like how we call vaginas 'flowers' you are thus demoted to Responsible Parenthood.

I read an article about why you're the bad guy. It's coz you're undemocratic! See, this is why:
“In essence, if you support the RH bill, you are not pro-choice.  You’re not only anti-life; you are also not pro-choice because if you were truly pro-choice, you would give the choice for your fellow citizens  whether or not to use contraceptives.”  -Lanao del Norte Rep. Fatima Aliah Dimaporo
I dunno about you, but to me the connection was pretty blurry, but hey, they'll say anything, even cry "undemocratic" just to prove you're not the way to go. We shouldn't have the stuff you're supposed to provide, you know like: (1) Information and access to natural and modern family planning (2) Maternal, infant and child health and nutrition (3) Promotion of breast feeding (4) Prevention of abortion and management of post-abortion complications (5) Adolescent and youth health (6) Prevention and management of reproductive tract infections, HIV/AIDS and STDs (7) Elimination of violence against women.... etc. etc. Because if we had access to all this, apparently people are gonna have sex.

Let me repeat, people are gonna have sex!

Apparently, people won't have sex when they're kept innocent... or more of ignorant. That's an amazing conclusion, though for a while there I thought many of the girls got STDs or got pregnant coz they didn't know what they were in for nor how they could have protected themselves.

I really like the article Why the RH Bill is Bad. It clearly explains why we should just trash you now.

Horray for progress!
