RATED SPG: Reproductive Morality Bomb
(Temptation or Abstinence ?)
The issue is said to be the argumentative turmoil between the state and the church. According to the Philippine Constitution under Article III Section VI, “ No law shall be made respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. The free exercise and enjoyment of religious profession and worship, without discrimination or preference, shall forever be allowed. No religious test shall be required for the exercise of the civil and political rights ”. The church has its own attitude to defend their so-called “ No to Reproductive Health Bill ” slogan. In this case, the government subtly let the church fight their own stand and developed it largely to the mass of people in order for people to be against the bill. But the government is widely concerned with the people of the state, especially about poverty, mortality rate and maybe, the payment for the baptism of every baby to be born.
It is immoral for people to undergo surgeries on permanent birth control. Birth control inventions like contraceptives are just like to be so much hassle depending how people would control the activity. Pills could have, well, the side effect before knowing it could control fertility alone. Do you know the birth control with a very small figure, which is really thin? About a half of matchbox wide and thin like a sheet of paper, the contraceptive is used for women to paste it anywhere like at the buttocks, back, or anywhere the prescriptions says. I knew about it when I spotted the contraceptive ad from a European Magazine. At the back of the ad, it’s been fully peppered with the very littlest of details of guidelines to use the contraceptive with security. To be nationalistic for a very short moment, it’s vaguely to see who are conservative and who are the liberated ones. During the Spanish colonial period, women in their baro’t saya and embroidered fans on their hands are mostly shy type and reserved in terms of being courted. Today, people are very modern especially in the Western Countries by which adolescent couples tend to plan a sexual activity in a prom night. Turns out, many experienced unwanted pregnancies and cried out after doing the lust of flesh. A taboo to mention, Western men we’re been told “ Don’t forget your rubbers! ” with their grin on their faces. Not to make you laugh but realize how really bad the world is. When a country allows every citizen to bring themselves with contraceptives, it equates on a situation that people could be abusive to have a intercourse with anyone despite of having bothered wives on the other hand. They we’re not only adults but also teenagers who are very curious and can’t wait to try the same. Focusing on the more serious procedures of birth control, vasectomy for men and ligation for women are just too painful to imagine to people who had undergone surgeries. In the Bible, it is mentioned that the Temple of God is our body, therefore, it should keep it Holy. Meaning, we have to take care of ourselves and even the private parts should be handled with more TLC. Therefore, the process of vasectomy and ligation are immoral though it could help birth control of whatever couples anted to do just to be good in bed. God invented sex only for married couples, and not given to the “ not- yet –married ” ones.
On December 30, 2012, the Manila Bulletin issued having the headline “ Palace Seeks Reconciliation: Prelate Decries ‘Moral Time Bomb’ As Aquino Signing Of RH Law Is Confirmed “. Highlighting important statements of the of the article, it says “ Malacañang called for reconciliation (yesterday) after the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health (RH) Act of 2012, Republic Act (RA) 10354, was signed into law by President Benigno S. Aquino III despite bitter opposition from the Catholic church. Church leader promptly criticized the move take taken by the President, with a member of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) saying that Aquino will be known as the one ‘ who planted a moral time bomb in a Catholic country? ”. Will the Philippines be like what Western Countries are ? Although it would help lessen the mortality rate and poverty, is it moral to have contraceptives on hand or undergo painful vasectomy or ligation ? Is it moral to have flings and be confident that you will never make someone pregnant ? The tools for anti-fertility may have the side effect of having not able to give birth the next time you planned to have an off-spring. What if you couldn’t able to give birth after you had abused yourself earlier in taking birth control pills ?
Unwanted pregnancies yield to abortion by pregnant moms who don’t want to continue their fetus’ lives just to save their careers ( if the carrier was required to a career for single ladies only) or just another thought of no mercy, bringing down the human seed ( read: embryo ) to the unmerciful, usually old-aged abortionists. Miscarriage is different from abortion. RH Bill not only talks about the control of human population but also the responsible parenthood. And the responsible parenthood shall in the wise and responsible family planning where in raising an offspring shall be a major priority from infancy up to young adulthood. Now the most significant leader of the Republic of the Philippines claimed RH Bill effective, still, I’m not favor of the usage of contraceptives and birth control painful surgeries. The key for good parenting is knowing how to plan every birth with even brighter future. No one ever dreamed to be in a squatter’s area. In short, it is only how you observe discipline in everything you do. With discipline, you can never go wrong to the very climax of happenings in the Temptation Island. You don’t play with your flesh . You become moral and dignified with your not anymore liberated moves. Therefore, I’m against the law. But it’s already a law, so you have no choice but to follow.
Abstinence. It works everytime.
