Science Facts on the RH Bills in Plain Language

Posted on : 20-04-2011 | By : admin | In : Reviews

0

The world’s leading scientific experts resolve the issues regarding the systematic, nationwide distribution of artificial contraceptives.

1. The RH Bills will kill children.

When does human life begin? At fertilization, when the sperm penetrates the egg. This was the unanimous response of medical experts (including doctors from Harvard Medical School and the Mayo Clinic) at an eight day hearing of the US Senate.1

Do birth control pills and the IUD kill the embryo? Yes, the pill has a secondary “postfertilization effect”, according to the scientific journal of the American Medical Association.2 The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology pronounced that the intrauterine device brings about the “destruction of the early embryo.”3

2. The RH Bills will injure women’s health.

Is the pill safe? The International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2007 reported that the pill causes cancer, giving it the highest level of carcinogenicity, the same as cigarettes and asbestos.4 It also causes stroke,  5 and significantly increases the risk of heart attacks.6

3. The RH Bills will destroy the family.

Will the greater availability of contraception improve the conditions of the family? Contraceptives bring about the downgrading of marriage, more extramarital sex, more fatherless children, more single mothers, according to the studies of Nobel prize winner, George Akerlof.7

4. The RH Bills will promote the spread of AIDS.

Will the use of condoms lower the rate of HIV/AIDS in a country? It will increase it, according to the “best evidence” in the world, concluded Harvard Director for AIDS Prevention, Edward C. Green. Availability of condoms makes people take wilder sexual risks, thus worsening the spread of the disease.8

5. The RH Bills are based on wrong economics.

Is there a correlation between population growth and economic development? “No correlation” is the answer of Simon Kuznets, Nobel Prize winner in the science of economics.9 Many later studies confirmed this.

Is population control one of the ingredients for high economic growth? No. This is the conclusion of the 2008 Commission on Growth and Development headed by Nobel prize winner Michael Spence. The factors for high growth are: leadership, openness to knowledge, stable finances, market allocation, investment and savings.10

The ultimate experts and arbiters have spoken. Stop the RH Bills once and for all.

Help dispel ignorance of these science facts. Beware of the wealthy and powerful pro-RH lobby.

Life As We Know It

Posted on : 28-11-2010 | By : admin | In : Reviews

“Life As We Know It” is a now showing movie that every supporter of the Reproductive Health (RH) bill must see. Baby Sophie simply melts your heart and makes you wonder how anyone is afraid of having babies. The movie portrays the fatherly and motherly instinct that comes out naturally from a person, notwithstanding anger or resentment, seeing the helplessness of a baby, more so if he is still inside the mother’s womb. To hinder the growth of this miracle of life is unthinkable, causing monstrously bizarre problems.

Recent news mention about aging populations that can bring about untold misery in some Western countries wherein people aged 65 and over are about to outnumber children under 5, raising the minimum legal retirement age, and keep the elderly working. Older persons entitled to pensions and health care services will soon be more than the younger work force whose taxes help pay for those benefits. For us to copy their outrageous contraceptive mentality, with the despotic provisions of the RH bill that imprisons and fines people who oppose it, is simply playing dumb and blind to the realities of life.

Indeed, life as we know it starts from conception and there is a need to nurture a child within a stable and happy ambiance of a family consisting of a father, a mother and siblings. To accept the fact that every matrimonial act is open to life can give lasting, true happiness to husband and wife who give themselves totally and unconditionally to each other for life. Live-in arrangements foster selfishness not conducive to raising happy, responsible children and citizens.

President P-Noy should work double time to eradicate corruption and focus on food production and job creation to feed the youth who will be the future leaders of our country.

- Mrs. Ching D. Aunario

TV Review: Noah

Posted on : 23-07-2010 | By : admin | In : Reviews

Below is a TV Review by Mrs Gerly de Castro

TV REVIEW

TITLE : “NOAH” CATEGORY : TELESERYE

TV CHANNEL: ABS CBN   DAYS: Monday to Friday   Time Slot: 7:50 p.m.

LEAD STARS:   Piolo Pascual as Gabriel Perez

Zaijan Jaranilla as Jacob (son of Gabriel)

Jodie Sta. Maria as Ruth (wife of Gabriel)

Tessie Tomas as mother of Gabriel

Cherry Pie Picache as mother of Ruth

PRODUCER:     Emilio Siojo

DIRECTOR :     Malu Sevilla

Lino Cayetano

SYNOPSIS:

This mythical teleserye is considered as one of the biggest productions of ABS-CBN. Noah tells the story of a family whose lives turn upside down after one tragic accident. Gabriel is an outstanding police officer who gets into trouble when he spearheaded a major undercover operation which leads to the downfall of an influential organization. A serious threat over his son’s life convinces him to escape and as the family does so, they met an accident which hurled their car onto the sea. The son, Jacob got lost in the process and he ended up in a mythical island which supposedly has no contact with the real world.

REMARKS:

The theme of the story boasts of NOAH being … malapit sa kalikasan…walang inggitan, lamangan, may malasakit sa kapwa, walang gulo.. , the theme of harmony with nature through good relationships among the inhabitants and their surrounding environment. The inhabitants are called  Ungtas, or human monkeys. NOAH became Jacob’s home; he was renamed Eli by his adoptive parents and grew up believing that he is one of them.  Hopefully, we can expect a pleasant and interesting adventure as Gabriel pursues his determination and zeal to find his son.

At this point, the teleserye may be viewed by all ages.
