Aron sa pagpaniguro, akong binisaya-on akong mensahe aron dili dali nga masabtan sa mga langyaw.

Dili pa lang dugay, sa usa ka website nga akong nabisita, nagbasa kog mga balita bahin sa atong nasod. Sa mao nga website pwede pod ang mga readers maka kumentaryo. Ug diha'y usa sa ilang mga hisgutanan nga na-intresado ko mao nga misulay ko sa pagkumento. Apil sa ila nga pamaagi kung duna'y gusto nga mokumento mao ang pagpangayo sa email address sa gusto nga mokumento. Abi ba nako ug email address lang ang pangayoon nila, apil man pod diay ang password sa email address, mao nga nagpanagana na ko. Apan lagi tungod sa akong pagka intresado sa mao nga topic, ug tungod pod sa repotasyon sa mao nga website, mao nga nangarisgar ko ug hatag sa akong email address ug password aron nga maka kumentaryo ko sa usa sa mga init nga hisgutanan sa mao nga website.

Dili lang nako hisgutan ang detalye bahin sa akong gikatingad-an kay aron dili dali makabantay ang kung kinsa man galing ang responsable niini.

Kini nga nahitabo sa akong email account, usa kini ka dako nga leksyon para kanako (ug sa uban pa nga mga tig-gamitan sa Internet). Dili gayod diay angay nga basta-basta lang kita mosalig sa mga website maski na kung sikat o establisado na ang ilang pangalan.

Thailand's Unborn: A Case of RH Program Failure


The gruesome discovery of more than 2,000 foetuses in a Bangkok temple sent shockwaves across Thailand last November.

As most abortion is illegal in Thailand, the case has shone a spotlight on a massive backstreet industry and sparked national debate about the country's current abortion laws, which date from the 1950s.

Religion has played a significant social and political role in this debate. Theravada Buddhism in Thailand is a socially conservative force. About 95 per cent of the population are Buddhist and Buddhism remains closely tied to the state.

The Buddhist nation has strict laws on abortion and views it as a sin.
"In Buddhism, we see abortion as a sin. It definitely violates our religious belief. Killing is a sin. It doesn't matter whether the killing takes place inside or outside the womb, it's a sin," Phra Kru Wichitsorakul, the abbot of Phai Ngern temple, says.

Illegal abortion is a huge problem in Thailand, a country of 67 million people. Official statistics suggest around 300,000 abortions are carried out each year in Thailand, the vast majority in backstreet clinics.

And with hundreds of unwanted pregnancies illegally terminated every day, these foetuses have turned out to be just the tip of the iceberg.

Here is one proof that population control by means of government-sponsored contraception-only policies (no abortion is legal), like what is being proposed in our RH bill version, would also be a failure if it is only addressed at the physical dimension of the problem and not more on the psychological/spiritual dimension of it where the core of the problem resides. Thailand is an example where its people are resorting to abortion because the prevalence of unwanted pregnancies remain unsolved no matter how much contraceptives their government are providing. Another dismal case of inaccurate study of the problem that resulted to inaccurate solution which in turn resulted to ineffective result.


Character Formation: The Only Right Alternative to "RH Bill" for the Youth


Very uplifting is the message of their song. What the video portrays is a very good example of a small local community spiritually guiding their youth in the right path that they should go so that they would not be swayed by the negative influences of the worldly culture around them.

"For though we walk in the flesh, we don't wage war according to the flesh; for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the pulling down of strongholds, throwing down imaginations and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ." (2 Corinthians 10:3-5) 

A problem which has more of a psychological/spiritual dimension can't be remedied appropriately with solutions that are merely material in nature and it can't be dealt with effectively if it is addressed in the physical realm alone.

With all of its symptoms and consequences, irresponsible sex is more of a mental attitude problem than it is a physical one. Therefore to address this problem with the use of solutions such as those provided in the proposed Reproductive Health bill -- which primarily includes maternal-and-child healthcare products and services as well as birth-prevention products and services -- is to merely deal with the physical consequences of the problem and does not address the psychological dimension of the problem itself at its very core.

In today's instant-gratification world, the correct and proper teaching of the ABC's of sexual responsibility which is a big part of the most critical phase of youth development has been greatly declining in most of the societies across the globe -- already almost to the point of total neglect. Majority of the young minds of today's information age, on their own, are left freely learning wrong norms from the various forms of media they constantly are exposed to everyday -- the internet, mobile phone, television, radio, movies, magazines, etc. Both at home and in school, parents and educators alike have become seriously negligent of the responsibility of molding the character dimension of the youth. Today's educational systems seem to have failed to prevent the destruction of the balance between material prosperity and spiritual prosperity. More and more focus has been given to career and profession building while less and less focus is given to character formation.

And how about the religious institutions? How are they fairing with respect to the formation of the youth's character? So sad to admit, but they too have failed the youth of today in varying degrees. Many of them preach a kind of Christianity without cross. Others preach a kind of cross without Christ. While the rest preach on material prosperity more than spiritual matters, and this is perhaps why they are supportive of the contraception-based solution to the problem of sexual irresponsibility-related poverty.

If societies are to succeed in the fight against the consequences of sexual irresponsibility in today's nihilistic and narcissistic world, one key and major factor to be given big focus in the overall strategy is the [re]formation of people's character particularly in the young minds of the youth. Molding them and guiding them spiritually with right values and imparting virtues into their young minds. Approaching the problem this way targets the underlying psychological dimension of the problem of irresponsible sex right at its very core.

This is the only right alternative to the proposed U.N.-advocated Reproductive Health bill that can stand the best chance against the menace and consequences of sexual irresponsibility.

A - Abstinence. Teaching them the virtue of chastity and purity before marriage.
B - Be Faithful. Teaching them the virtue of marital fidelity.
C - Character. Teaching them the Word of God for the formation of godly character.

"Train up your children in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6)

Bakit ba halos na lang lahat ng pangunahing mga pangangailangan ng taombayan ay sabayang nagsitaasan? Mula sa langis, kuryente, pagkain, mga pangunahing bilihin, pamasahe sa train, toll fee, buwis, at itong tubig. Haaay nako mga kababayan, papano na kaya mabubuhay ang karamihan sa atin ngayon? Ang bigat na nga ng krus ni Juan De la Cruz dahil hindi na nga sapat ang kinikita niya sa araw-araw para sa kanyang pamilya, e lalo pang pinapalala ang kanyang kalagayan ng mga panibagong pampabigat na namang mga bagay na ito!

Panginoon, tulongan mo po ang aming bayan na makalampas at makatawid sa mga paghihirap at mga pagdurusang ito.

Sa susunod at darating na mga panahon, lalo pa ba kayang lalala itong mahirap na kalagayan ng taombayan, o ito na ba kaya ang sukdulang resulta ng masakim na pamamalakad ng mga makapangyarihang namumuhonan na nagmamay-ari ng malalaki at pangunahing mga kalakal sa ating bansa? Ano kaya ang magagawa ng kasalukoyang pamumuno ng ating bansa kaugnay sa bagay na ito? Sabi ng ating mga namumuno hindi raw nila mapipigil ang bagong pataw na buwis sa toll fee. Sabi din nila na wala raw silang kapangyarihan na kontrolahin o mapigilan ang halos linggo-linggong pagtataas ng presyo ng langis dahil ito ay "deregulated". E, papaano na kaya ngayon ang mumunting ikinabubuhay ni mamang tsuper na tanging inaasahan niya sa araw-araw para sa kanyang pamilya?

At tungkol naman sa tubig at kuryente, ang lugi ng mga pampublikong kumpaniya na nagnenegosyo ng tubig at kuryente ay parang walang awang dagdag na ipinapapasan nila sa balikat ng taombayan sa pamamagitan ng pagtataas ng singil sa babayarin na sobra na sa dapat na makatarungan at tama lamang na babayarin.

Hindi masama sa isang pamahalaan na alagaan ang interest ng mga namumuhonan sa bansa, ngunit kailangan din na maibalanse ito sa kapakanan ng taombayan. Pero sa nangyayari ngayon, at dahil na rin sa ikinikilos ng mga namumuno sa atin, ang pakiramdam tuloy ng taombayan ay parang mas pinapaboran pa ng pamahalaan ang interest ng mga namumuhonan na siyang naging dahilan sa pagkasira ng balanse sa pagitan ng interest ng mga namumuhunan at ng kapakanan ng taombayan.

Hanggang kailan kaya makakayang tiisin itong ganitong kalagayan?


RH Bill: A First Step Towards the Legalization of Abortion


Three pro-RH groups backing legalized abortion exposed
By Dominic Francisco

At least three non-government organizations have been found to be espousing the legalization of abortion in the Philippines, as senators resumed floor debates on the controversial “reproductive health” (RH) bill Monday.

One of the sponsors of Senate Bill No. 2865, Sen. Pia Cayetano, did not deny that groups such as the Family Planning Organization of the Philippines (FPOP), the Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights (WGNRR), and Likhaan have been campaigning for legalized abortion, under interpellation by Sen. Vicente Sotto III.

Sotto pointed out that FPOP got US$617,000 (P26 million) in funding from the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) – the world’s largest abortion provider – last year.

FPOP’s website carries a document titled “Medical and Service Delivery Guidelines for Sexual and Reproductive Health Services,” which describes medical and surgical methods for inducing abortion.

“Efforts should be made to inform the public that abortion is safest when performed early, and women who seek abortion should be encouraged to attend as early in the pregnancy as possible,” the document on the FPOP website states.

FPOP is also on the listing of “Sexual Health Services and abortion clinics Worldwide” by the Dutch abortion group Women on Waves (WoW). WoW takes women aboard hired ships to undergo abortions in international waters, to escape national laws banning abortion.

WoW states on its website: “If you live in a country where there is no access to safe abortion services and you would like to obtain a medical abortion with Mifepristone and Misoprostol, please go to Women on Web. This is an online medical abortion help service that refers to a doctor who can provide you with a medical abortion.”

Mifepristone and Misoprostol are abortion drugs, and both are not legal in the Philippines.

Providing how-to instructions for abortion

Likhaan, meanwhile, published last year a Filipino translation of the book “Where Women Have No Doctor,” Chapter 15 of which has a section titled “Mga Ligtas na Paraan ng Pagpapalaglag.” The book is available to the public on the Likhaan website.

“Tinatanggal ang binubuntis sa pamamagitan ng paghigop, gamit ang ispesyal na tubo (cannula) na pinapadaan sa puwerta at cervix pa-pasok sa matris. Puwedeng gawin ito na hindi pinapatulog ang babae, pero minsan, iniiniksyunan ng gamot sa cervix para makatulong sa sakit. Sa manu-manong proseso (manual vacuum aspiration o MVA), tinatanggal ang binubuntis sa pamamagitan ng ispesyal na heringgilya (syringe). Kung hindi, gumagamit ng maliit na makinang de-kuryente,” the book states.

“Mayroon na ngayong mga gamot na nagagamit ang mga doktor at health worker para magpalaglag. Pinapaimpis ng mga gamot ang matris at pinipiga palabas ang binubuntis. Ang ilang gamot ay nilalagay sa loob ng puwerta … ang ilan ay iniinom, at ang ilan ay iniiniksyon. Kung tama ang gagamiting gamot o kumbinasyon ng mga gamot, ligtas at mabisang paraan ito,” it adds.

Pushing abortion acceptance despite being unlawful

The Manila- and Amsterdam-based WGNRR, headed by UP professor Dr. Sylvia Claudio, talks about its “Abortion Rights Advocacy” on its website:

“Throughout its almost 30 year history, WGNRR has made abortion advocacy a priority.”

The Claudio-led group’s “specific goals” include the investigation of “ways to improve access despite the law,” sharing of “experiences and strategies about how to confront religious fundamentalists,” and finding the “best practices for linking abortion rights to other social justice and human rights campaigns.”

Sotto pointed out that the RH bill provides an “open door” to abortion – Section 3 paragraph 1. The provision states: “While this Act does not amend the penal law on abortion, the government shall ensure that all women needing care for post-abortion complications shall be treated and counseled in a humane, non-judgmental and compassionate manner.”

“People and organizations behind it, as far as I’m concerned, are the difficulties I am encountering [in this bill],” Sotto said.

“IPPF has lobbied worldwide for the legalization and repeal of all laws preventing legal access to abortion,” he added.

In reply, Cayetano said: “The fact that an organization has made statements inconsistent with public policy does not prevent them from making statements consistent [with public policy].”

Using a poor analogy, the pro-RH senator said that even if Osama bin Laden supported policies against climate change, environmentalist Sen. Loren Legarda wouldn’t want to be associated with the brains behind the 9/11 attacks.

Sotto, however, retorted: “Climate change – everybody will agree to that. Eh ito contraception and abortion eh!"

Watch comprehensively the full video posted above, because this is how "Family Planning" and "Planned Parenthood" mean to the three groups advocating abortion (Family Planning Organization of the Philippines [FPOP], the Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights [WGNRR], and Likhaan) in our country which Senator Pia Cayetano admitted are among the strong backers of the proposed RH bill. And passing this proposed "watered down" version of the RH bill ("watered down" because legalalized abortion is not yet included in the bill's provision) is merely a first step on the road to their ultimate victory -- which is the legalization of abortion in our country.

And to those who are subscribing to the idea that legalizing abortion will make the practice of it rare, see this annual abortion statistics record of the U.S.A. since they legalized abortion:

Total abortions in the U.S.A. from 1973 to 1998 alone is horrifyingly over 38 million already!

Over 38 million helpless innocent souls murdered in just 25 years with the full consent of the state?! If this is not grossly horrifying state-sponsored genocide, then what euphemistic term can it be called? Don't you think that the blood of these millions of innocent lives don't flood heaven's door and perpetually cry out for justice?

* * * * *
How do you think did many of the states in the U.S.A. and in Europe end up with legalizing abortion as part of their Reproductive Health program? Would you be surprised to discover that they have once started their Reproductive Health program just like how our own country now is  proposing this RH bill, no abortion as a first step? And look at how they have ended up now.

The practical reason for their legalization of abortion in their states is that no matter how much contraceptives their respective governments are providing to their people, still the problem of unwanted pregnancies remained rampant and prevalent. And owing to the desperate outcome of their initial population control programs, there was no other option left for these governments to choose except to allow their women to be able to legally eradicate their unwanted unborn children before these helpless little innocent human beings could even see the light of day.

Sa usaping "Reproductive Health"
(read: "population control") at "legalization of abortion", kung baga sa lakbay, ang Pilipinas ay hamak na magsisimula pa lang na tatahak sa landas na ito, samantalang ang Estados Unidos at ang Uropa ay sobrang layo na sa kanilang pinagsimulan -- ika nga, humanly speaking, they are already at the point of no return. Hindi na nila pwedeng gawing isang malaking krimen ang pagpatay ng tao sa loob ng sinapupunan ng ina. Hindi ba itong kalagayan na ito ay parang katulad na rin sa impyerno na kung saan ay walang pananagutan ang pagkitil ng buhay ng tao?

Ang sino mang tatahak sa daan ng bitag ay natural lamang na walang ibang hahantungan kundi ang kapahamakan. Kung ang U.S.A. at Europe nga sa bandang huli ay hindi pa rin nila naiwasang baguhin ang kanilang batas sa "Reproductive Health" (read: "population control") at tuloyang ginawa na rin nilang legal ang abortion, e tayo pa kaya? E kung kusa tayong tatahak sa daan na ito pasunod sa mga nauna sa atin, e aba ang tatalino naman kaya nating mga Pinoy kung sa kalaunan ay hindi rin tayo mahulog sa bitag ng "legalization of abortion" katulad nila.

This issue on "Reproductive Health" (read: "population control") and ultimately the legalization of abortion as the final recourse to the stubborn and prevalent problem of unwanted pregnancies does not matter whether countries are secular or religious, poor or rich, democratic or not, because the bottom line and common denominator here is the bad old problem of unrestrained irresponsible use of human sexual appetite.

While on the surface, contraception may seem to address the unwanted physical consequences of the problem, but what is of great danger here is what is unseen happening deep within the psyche -- and that is, the further eroding of sexual morality. And this is where the core of the problem is. Just like the problem of "Utak Wangwang" (the mindset of corruption), the problem of "Utak Libog" (the mindset of irresponsible sex or sex-as-I-please whenever, wherever, & whomever) really lies between the ears and no amount of whatever type of artificial contraception is able to tame this mentality.

If our government will not open their eyes to the reality that this deceivingly and euphemistically called "Reproductive Health" (read: "population control") program (which the "big brains" of the U.N. is desperately advocating as a "solution" to mitigate poverty by reducing the population of the world's poor) is nothing but a futile attempt to [inaccurately] address or treat the symptoms and never the underlying disease itself, then the problem would only worsen. And when the complications of this wrong treatment begin to manifest and show off their ugly monstrous heads, there would be no other viable option left for the government to choose except ultimately to legalize access to abortion.



U.N. to stop funding Philippine population plan

By Gil Cabacungan
Philippine Daily Inquirer

The country’s family planning program is in peril after the United Nations sounded off its plan to cut back its aid to the government’s population control program.

Iloilo Rep. Janette Garin said that she was informed that the UN would abandon its $1 million birth control program in the Philippines starting next year due to lack of funding from members.

Garin said that the fund was used to bankroll the use of injectable drugs to prevent pregnancy in three months or the distribution of birth control pills especially to those who just gave birth.

The vice chair of the House committee on health said that this has made the passage of the Reproductive Health bill more urgent to ensure sustained funding for family planning programs.

Without this regular UN-funded program to poor Filipinos, Garin feared that the Philippines could experience a spike in its population growth rate recently pegged at 2.4 percent per annum.


Whether people admit it or not, and no matter how much sugar-coating is done to it, the U.N.-advocated program which is so-called the "Reproductive Health" program is basically a world population reduction program. And whether people will like it or not, according to U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton (in her own words during a foreign policy hearing in their legislative house), "...Reproductive Health includes access to abortion..."

Passing our own "watered down" version of the U.N.-advocated RH bill in our country ("watered down" because abortion is not yet included in the birth control options to be legalized and offered) is merely the first step, because it has been proven time and again, as are the cases in many poor countries in Latin America, Africa, and Asia, that for a reproductive health program to be really effective within its program time frame and within the limitations of its budget, the option of abortion must be included.

Please see: World Abortion Policies

How can we be sure that our own country's proposed RH Bill will someday not lead to the granting of access to abortion? Is this part of the deal of the $343M grant the United States government has granted the Philippines during President Noynoy's first foreign mission with the world leaders at the United Nations? May we know the truth about this? FOI please?

Here are some relevant and significant information:
National Security Study Memorandum 200

But reducing the population of the world's poor is not that easy to accomplish as some so-called world experts may have thought. In fact many of these so-called experts are now even advocating another radical way of achieving their objective. Genocide! And of course to be carried out subtly through seemingly harmless products such as food, drinks, and medicines, and to be administered or delivered through food aids, medical aids, and in some forms of disease prevention measures through vaccinations. As the world's poor innocently and unsuspectingly take these "disguised substances" into their body system, either they will become sterile for the rest of their life, or their life expectancy is greatly reduced, or they will have both of those subtly intended adverse effects.

Global Overpopulation: The Making Of A Myth:

Here is another animated video on overpopulation myth:

* * * * *
Reduction of Birth Rate or Birth-Control? Whatever people may call it, one good way to achieve Birth-Control is to practice Self-Control. "Plan bago yugyugan." Or in other words, Family Planning. At "Kung didiskarte, maging responsable." Or in other words, Responsible Parenthood.

Talking about Family Planning and Responsible Parenthood. I am agreeable to the idea of managing birth rate for the sake of economic betterment with the aim of improving the standard of living of the population, no question about that. In fact some of the so-called "pro RH bill" might be surprised to know that many of the so-called "anti RH bill" are advocating Family Planning and Responsible Parenthood -- but in the true sense of the advocacy and in the right way, and not in the way that the U.N. is desperately advocating. The disagreement, I think, is not much in the objective or purpose but is more in the ways or means of achieving that goal. (If only there are "real" options such that both the Church and the State could agree, then there would be no significant obstacles in the legislation and implementation of laws on the objectives of Family Planning & Responsible Parenthood.)

While there are many points of disagreement, yet did you know that there are in fact some few points of possible agreement between the RH bill's proponents and some of those who are opposing the bill? One such point is the use of the Natural Family Planning method (NFP). Another is sex education for children provided there are agreements in the curiculum and in the age bracket.

But sad to say that the government seems to be subscribing to the United Nations' shotgun approach to World Population and is sold out to this so-called "solution" by [blindly] embracing the concept of Population Reduction.


* * * * *
Just because countries are implementing the U.N.-advocated version of the Reproductive Health program does not mean that the program will work for every country. In fact if you take a look at the record of the poor countries which implented birth-control programs for the past two or three decades, you will be shocked to discover of the very low success rate that these countries have attained with respect to their goal of achieving a better standard of living for the majority of their people.

Not everything in the Reproductive Health bill is wrong. But what makes the entirety of it wrong is that it combines into one bill both the population control program and the mother & child health care program that's been well promoted and talked about. This is where the seeming trickery of the United Nation's euphemism comes in. For it to have high global acceptability, they marketed it as a "Reproductive Health" program to conceal the inclusion of abortion in its original agenda because majority of the nations in the U.N. General Assembly did not agree to the idea of including access to abortion in the program.

Here is one video that might be of interest:

The Hijacked Agenda of the Nations in the U.N. General Assembly

Base on the data shown below (please see the link provided below), wherever there is considerable presence of Christianity, abortion is either illegal or rare. And the reason perhaps is obvious. When it comes to rare cases of birth that involves life and death situation for both the mother and the baby, Christians uphold the principle of what is known as "double effect." And these are isolated cases and do not count as to the category of legalized abortion due to unwanted pregnancy.

If according to Secretary Hillary Clinton's frank acknowledgment (please see my posted video above) that, "...Reproductive Health includes access to abortion...", then why do you think that the U.N.-advocated true version of the euphemistically called Reproductive Health program should include access to abortion and is made legal in many European countries as well as in the U.S.A.? It is because, let me repeat, that time and again, it has been proven in many countries which tried implenting contraceptive-only method of population control that without abortion the success of the program with respect to the global goal of improving the standard of living of the people is not that effective as they had thought.

Here is one article that might be relevant to the topic on abortion and notice how euphemism has been used also to attempt conceal the particular crime of murdering the unborn child.

There are demands worldwide for a procedure to reduce twins to a single pregnancy and it has grown steadily. “The Two-Minus-One Pregnancy” is one of the most twisted thinking that justifies the killing of the unborn, and the people opting for this procedure try to evade moral responsibility by calling the procedure a “reduction.” But the procedure so dishonestly called “reduction” is really not about mere “meddling.” It is murder. --Article Quote

And here is an article on the Principle of Double-Effect that is also relevant to the topic on abortion where rare difficult childbirth cases involve life and death situation of both the mother and the unborn child.
