Winnie Monsod: PNOY, Handang Ma-Excommunicate para sa Responsible Parenthood Bill.
President Noynoy Aquino recently declared in a speech in the graduation rites of UP, that he is willing to face ex-communication by the Church for supporting Responsible Parenthood Bill. Are there really sufficient grounds for him to be ex-communicated?
What is Winnie's stand on the issue of Reproductive Health/Responsible Parenthood?
Arnold Clavio and Mareng Winnie also get to talk to Fr. Anton Pascual, president of Radyo Veritas and executive director of Caritas Manila.
Fr. Pascual declares that the Church is willing to adopt the babies of mothers who could not take care of them, and the Church is also willing to take care of the mothers. According to him, adoption is the solution to abortion. Why only now?
RH BILL AWARENESS: Contrary to the misinformation campaign being spread by some, the Reproductive Health (RH) - Responsible Parenthood (R) Bill does not allow abortion and will not force any contraceptive methods on anyone.
It will not dictate the number of children a family can have.
The Bill will respect the moral convictions and religious beliefs of all, but at the same time, protect the unborn child by providing health services for the pregnant mother and likewise save the lives of mother from dying at childbirth.
RH-RP Bill will protect, provide and access a full range of safe and effective family planning methods (both natural and artificial) to Filipinos regardless of their belief and non-belief.
The Bill is pro-quality life for the whole family. It ensures that more children will grow up secure in the knowledge that they were wanted because their births were planned.
It is not against the birth of children and does not advocate that couples stop having children. Rather, it only claims to help them achieve their fertility goals - to have the number and proper spacing of children that they desire.
Under the Philippine Law, abortion is illegal. The RH-RP Bill does not, in any way, legalize abortion.
In fact, this Bill will help reduce the instances of illegal abortions.
Currently 11 mothers unnecessarily die from giving birth daily as per latest estimates of the United Nations.
This Bill is committed to protect the health and lives of mothers.
It is committed to reduce maternal deaths and infant mortality.
It is committed to save babies.
