What is the Reproductive Health Bill in the Philippines?

There are 6 bills pertaining to reproductive health and/or population management that have been filed for deliberation in both the House of Representatives and the Senate for the 15th Congress.

The most controversial of these bills is House Bill No. 96 authored by Rep. Edcel Lagman. House Bill No. 96, also known as the proposed "Reproductive Health and Population and Development Act of 2010," will cover the following areas:

  • midwives of skilled attendance
  • emergency obstetric care
  • access to family planning
  • maternal death review
  • family planning supplies as essential medicines
  • benefits for serious and life-threatening reproductive health conditions
  • mobile health care service
  • mandatory age-appropriate reproductive health and sexuality education
  • responsibility of local family planning office and certificate of compliance
  • capability building of barangay health workers
  • ideal family size
  • employers' responsibilities
  • multi-media campaign
  • implementing mechanisms
  • reporting requirements
  • prohibited acts
  • penalties

The bill is controversial, as it is being opposed by concerned citizens, especially the pro-life, pro-family and pro-God groups, regardless of creed or religion. The Roman Catholic Church expresses its opposition against the bill on many counts, most especially the procurement and distribution of family planning supplies for the whole country, when the available evidence from peer reviewed medical journals supports the hypothesis that when ovulation and fertilization occur in women taking oral contraceptives (OCs) or using intrauterine devices (IUD), post-fertilization effects are operative on occasion to prevent clinically recognized pregnancy. Hormonal contraceptives and/or IUDs directly affect the endometrium. These effects have been presumed to render the endometrium relatively inhospitable to implantation or to the maintenance of the preembryo or embryo prior to clinically recognized pregnancy. These make pills and IUDS abortifacient.

Pro-life groups, and many professionals in the medical and nursing fields, believe that physicians and policy makers should understand and respect the beliefs of patients who consider human life to be present and valuable from the moment of fertilization. Patients should be made fully aware of this information so that they can consent to or refuse the use of artificial contraceptives.

However, the position of the Catholic Church and the pro-life groups does not mean that they espouse the attitude of "natalism" at all costs, as if the "number" of children, in itself, were the unmistakable sign of authentic christian matrimonial life.

The sexual act, properly exercised within marriage only, is ordained primarily to the propagation of life. If there are reasonable motives for spacing births, such as serious medical conditions in the mother, or extreme poverty, then the Catholic Church teaches that married couples may take advantage of the natural cycles of the reproductive system and use their marriage precisely those times that are infertile (natural family planning).

Other aspects of the bill being contested by concerned citizens include the classification of family planning supplies as essential medicines when their safety/toxicity profile and legal permissibility are questionable. At the same time, more importance should be given to the prevalent diseases, the top ten leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the Philippines, namely, infections such as pneumonia and tuberculosis. Financial resources allotted by foreign donors to assist the Philippine government programs could actually be better spent towards pursuing health programs targeting communicable diseases than purchasing artificial contraceptives.

Very pertinent to the debate about reproduction rights is the right to life. The Philippine Constitution says that the State "shall equally protect the life of the mother and the life of the unborn from conception. If artificial contraceptives are medically proven to induce abortion as one of their mechanisms of action, then procurement and distribution of such family planning supplies are unconstitutional and illegal.

A portion Official protest (of the Philippine Republic) against the Paris Peace Treaty, December 12, 1898 delivered by FELIPE AGONCILLO, PARIS, 12th of December, 1898 says: "The Blood Compact" (Pacto de Sangre) of the 12th of March, 1565, entered into between the General Don Miguel ...Lopez de Legazpi and the Filipino sovereign, Sikatuna, a compact which was ratified and confirmed on the one side, by the King of Spain, Philip II, and, on the other side, by the Monarchs of Mindanao, Bisayas and Luzon and by the Supreme Chief of that Confederation, the Lakan Banaw Dula (Sultan Lacandola); proclaiming as a consequence, the autonomous nationality of the Kingdom of "New Castile", formed by the Philippine Islands, under the sceptre of the King of Spain."

The descendants of Lakan Banaw Dula are as follows:

1. Ancestral Cousins are the descendants of children of Lakan Banaw Dula: Batang Dula, Magat Salamat, Dionisio Capulong, Felipe Salonga, Martin Lakandula and Maria Poloin.

2. Ancestral Aunt, Auncle, Grandma and Grandpa are the descendants of the ancestors of Lakan Dula: The Ancestors of Magat Salamat and David Dulay (David Dula y Goiti) are as follows - Batang Dula: Father of David Dula y Goiti,Son of Lakan Dula and Mutya,Brother of Magat Salamat, Felipe Salonga, Dionisio Capulong;Lakan Dula (1503-1589): David's grandfather, Husband of Mutya, Son of Rajah Sulaiman I and Ysmeria, Father of Batang Dula, Magat Salamat, Felipe Salonga, Dionisio Capulong;Mutya: David's grandmother, Wife of Lakan Dula, Mother of Batang Dula, Felipe Salonga, Magat Salamat, Dionisio Capulong;Rajah Sulaiman I: David's great grandfather, Son of Rajah Lontok and Dayang Kalangitan, Husband of Ysmeria, Father of Lakan Dula and Rajah Sulaiman II,, Brother of Dayang Panginoan, Dayang Lahat and Gat Kahiya;Ysmeria: David's great grandmother, Wife of Rajah Sulaiman I, Mother of Lakan Dula and Rajah Sulaiman II;Rajah Lontok: David's second great grandfather, Son of Sultan Bolkiah and Lela Mechanai, Husband of Dayang Kalangitan, Father of Dayang Panginoan, Dayang Lahat, Rajah Sulaiman I and Gat Kahiya, Brother of Rajah Gappandan;Dayang Kalangitan: David's second great grandmother, Wife of Rajah Lontok,Mother of Dayang Panginoan, Dayang Lahat, Rajah Sulaiman I and Gat Kahiya;Sultan Bolkiah: David's third great grandfather, Son of Sultan Sulaiman, Husband of Lela Mechanai, Father of Rajah Lontok and Rajah Gappandan; Lela Mechanai: David's third great grandmother, Daughter of Sultan Amir Ul-Ombra, Wife of Sultan Bolkiah, Mother of Rajah Lontok and Rajah Gappandan;Rajah Gambang: David's third great grandfather, Father of Dayang Kalangitan;Sultan Sulaiman: David's fourth great grandfather, Father of Sultan Bolkiah;Sultan Amir Ul-Ombra: David's fourth great grandfather, Father of Lela Mechanai;Rajah Alon: David's fifth great grandfather, Son of Lakan Timamanukum;Lakan Timamanukum: David's 6th great grandfather, Father of Rajah Alon.

3. Ancestral Relatives are those carrying the following surnames in their bloodline: the Spanish persecutions of the descendants of Lakan Dula continued and intensified, but a lot of descendants maintained their native surnames like lakandula, dula, dulay, gatdula, dulalla, dulalia, dulayan, abdullah, rebadulla, dulatre, duldulao, dulayba, lakandola, lacandalo, lacandola, lacandula, dula - torre and many others revolving around the root word "dula".

Some of the descendents hid their Lakan Dula heritage by changing their names into the likes of guevara, aguinaldo, legaspi, aquino, mendoza, osmena, de Leon, estanislao, laurel, fernando, ejercito, delapaz, mercado, santos, bonifacio, de guzman, etc, while some adopted chinese surnames of their mother like lim, uy, go, tan, etc, but they continued to pursue a belligerant posture against Spain.

What was the reaction to the State of the Nation Address by Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo?

Although the country has been affected by the global meltdown, the President has been able to stir the economy clear of trouble. The President was able to put the country's inflation in check despite the global financial downturn. The President's fiscal reforms kept the country afloat. She has shown us that she has the foresight. She made us take the bitter pill to withstand the tough times.

CONFUSION The president tells the Phillipine people what they want to hear- that there will be an election in 2010. but then does not tell us the rest of it. she stays quiet on cha-cha and says nothing about her plans after her term expires in 2010.

President Ramos and the rest of the countrie's citizens say she needs to tell us her plans after 2010 but her palace spokesperson defended her silence saying it's something private- which is ridiculous because she is the President- a famous public figure- not a private citizen.

Well, I salute Pres. GMA for being a strong woman but not for being a president..

The Speech were badly written, and badly delivered.. It was just a waste of time knowing that lots of people were not really listening to her lies. If the SONA is traditionally used to set an agenda for the upcoming year, then she has left that one hanging on a cliff.
sona 2008 is good.. pero i hate it kasi we are obliged to make a s.w.o.t. (Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis na 20 pages.. so far di pa ako nakakalahati. strength??? una kong nalagay is yong well funded programs niya.. as she said, malaki ang kita from VAT weakness?? no clear strategic directions regarding ung 3 solutions niya for the complex challenges Opportunities?? ung positive outlook sa international finance...financially capable tau threatS?? ung bawas buwis.. threat siya though okei maxado kasi baka mabawasan ang fund ng govt.. meaning di niya na mafund ung mga subsidized programs niya na karami rami... un lang.. bow!!

As a student, I believe in President Noynoy Aquinos abilities to lead us from corruption to a better lifestyle. His year has been very memorable especially to those ones whom he helped. He said about those who were poor and those who don't eat would have a much better chance to live a much better life than the past. Every Filipino has been yearning for this kind of freedom and life. Now all of us Filipino's will have a much, much better life and no more corruption! VERY WELL SAID!


we should be the best .. no corrup. no!

Inauguration of noynoy Aquino reaction paper?

Majority of people are disappointed.

Yes, there might be flocks of people who attended at the Quirino Grandstand but that does not represent the whole population of the Philippines.

People are disappointed because we witnessed a concert, instead of a formal event.

People are disappointed because we are afraid that government will become a sight of entertainment.

People are disappointed because we heard rhetoric.

People are disappointed because we heard promises ripped off from previous administration.

People are disappointed because we witnessed a lousy president's speech with a "prompter".

People are disappointed because we heard a platform of division instead of unity.

People are disappointed because we did not hear concrete plans on how to achieve their goals.

And most importantly, people are disappointed because we have no choice but to listen to a biased media network like ABS-CBN who's obviously protecting their business interest. They have successfully installed a president, now it's payback time.
