Now that's an RH Law defunding analogy I can get behind

03.07.2016

Finally an RH Law defunding analogy that fully captures the gravity of it all!

"Removing funding from the RH Law is like watching a Destiny’s Child reunion without Beyoncé."

Coz I mean, really, what is even the point?

 

Other highlights: "When your choices are to 'lay and pray' in a non-MMA sense and to spend money for contraception instead of using it to feed your family, then no amount of knowledge would help you..."

 

YES Kel Fabie. Your piece on the recent defunding of the Reproductive Health Law finally puts the issue into proper perspective:

"In 2012, the long-debated and highly controversial RH Bill was signed into law. This was a law that designated basic reproductive health rights, education, and information that was meant to benefit people not so much as it is for population control per se, but to promote age-appropriate knowledge about the birds and the bees.

Ultimately, all that sex education goes to waste if you’re too poor to afford contraception, which is not unlikely for the millions of Filipinos living below the poverty line. You need to provide for them, given that they’re the people most unlikely to be able to provide well for the children they have.

Surprise, surprise: a significant chunk of that funding is gone. And the Senate just let it happen. And that’s a problem. A huge one. And we know that the detractors of the RH Law are happy this happened, but this is very narrow-minded, especially from a pro-life point of view. Removing funding from the RH Law is like watching a Destiny’s Child reunion without Beyoncé."
