Ang Katotohanan Ukol sa RH Bill

(from a publication published by PLCPD and the Forum)

NAIS BA NG RH BILL NA KONTROLIN ANG POPULASYON?

Hindi. Layon ng panukalang batas na magkaroon ng population development o pagpapaunlad ng populasyon. Ang pagkontrol ng populasyon ay nangangahulugan ng paggamit ng pwersa o sapilitang pagpapatupad ng mga polisiyang pangpopulasyon na labag sa kagustuhan ng mga tao. Sa kabilang banda, and population development ay naglalayong tulungan ang mga mag-asawa na maabot ang gusto nilang laki ng pamilya habang isinasaalang-alang ang kalusugan ng ina at anak. Pinipigilan din nito ang mga kabataang magbuntis ng maaga at bigyan ng kakayahan ang pamahalaan na maabot ang isang balanseng distribusyon ng populasyon.

ISINUSULONG BA NG RH BILL ANG PRE-MARITAL SEX AT PAGIGING MAPANGAHAS NG MGA KABATAAN PAGDATING SA SEX?

Hindi. Ayon sa pag-aaral na isinagawa ng Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), ang mga kabataang naturuan ukol sa kanilang sekswalidad ay nagiging mas maingat sa mga bagay na may kinalaman sa sex. Pinatunayan din ng isang pag-aaral na isinagawa ng mga researchers na sina Grunseit at Kippax na ang pagkakaroon ng tamang edukasyon ukol sa sex ay nagdudulot upang ang mga kabataan ay maging mas maingat pagdating sa sex at huwag munang sumuong dito.

LAYUNIN BA NG H BILL NA GAWING LEGAL ANG ABORSYON?

Hindi. Malinaw na isinasaad sa RH Bill and pagiging labag sa batas ng aborsyon. Nilalayon ng panukalang batas na ito na siguruhing ang mga kababaihang mangangailangan ng kalinga para sa mga komplikasyong may kinalaman sa aborsyon ay tatratuhin sa paraang makatao at hindi mapanghusga.

Pia Cayetano: 5 Misconceptions About the RH Bill

MANILA, Philippines – Flower? What flower? Even as a child, Reproductive Health (RH) bill sponsor Sen Pia Cayetano knew her sex education.

“I didn’t understand why my yaya (nanny) called my private part a flower because I’m like, ‘A flower? Is that a flower?’ ‘Coz my mom called it what it was: a vagina.’”

On Rappler’s #TalkThursday, Cayetano stressed the importance of sex education and responded to misconceptions on the RH bill.

Cayetano told Rappler CEO and executive editor Maria Ressa she is relieved that the RH bill hurdled the period of interpellations at the Senate this week.

The interview was conducted on Thursday, June 7, or exactly a year after the senator delivered her sponsorship speech on the measure. Cayetano is chairperson of the Senate Committees on Health and Demography, and Youth, Women and Family Relations.

“I’ve gone through one whole year – 9 senators interpellating repeatedly….And although I am a very patient person, I’ve had to explain many times the same thing over and over again,” Cayetano said.

10 Things You Should Know About the Reproductive Health Bill

February 17, 2011

Learn the basics about the RH Bill. By Ana Santos

Reproductive health is not just a poor woman’s concern. Many brush off the need for the RH Bill thinking that it is only about sex and only for women who cannot afford to purchase modern contraception pills and condoms. But reproductive health is everyone’s concern. Think about every person you know (or are related to) who has had: a) an unwanted pregnancy, b) an additional pregnancy they could not afford, c) has considered terminating a pregnancy, or d) who has suffered from pregnancy-related complications and you will know that RH should concern every person who is able to bring life into the world and bear what should be the joyful responsibility of caring for it.

Read on for a no-nonsense run down of what the RH Bill means and why it’s relevant to you.

1. IT WILL STANDARDIZE RH POLICIES

Because there is national legislation on RH in place, varying RH policies are implemented in the local government unit level (LGU). These policies and provisions are often subject to the whims and personal religious beliefs of LGU officials.

In Manila for example, when staunch pro-life advocate Lito Atienza was mayor, he was able to pass the infamous Executive Order (E.O.) 003. This E.O. effectively declared the City of Manila as a provider only of pro-life methods. Thus, women were denied access to modern contraception methods (pills, condoms) and procedures (ligation) in government-run hospitals.

In contrast, Quezon City, often regarded as having one of the most progressive RH policies in the country, makes both modern and traditional family planning services available to its constituents for free.
