Science Facts on the RH law

Posted on : 19-08-2013 | By : TAG | In : Interesting Articles


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

 1. The pill and the IUD kill children.

When does human life begin? At fertilization, when the sperm penetrates the egg. This was the “overwhelming agreement” of top 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 young human being? 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 pill injures 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.   4It also causes stroke,    5/  and significantly increases the risk of heart attacks.   6/

3. Wide use of contraceptives leads to the destruction of families.

Will the greater availability of contraception improve the conditions of families?  Wide contraceptive use leads to more premarital sex, more fatherless children, more single mothers, more poverty, more abortions; and also a decline of marriage, less domesticated men, more crimes, according to the studies of Nobel prize winner, George Akerlof.    7/

4. Condoms 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. Other major science journals have confirmed this. Availability of condoms makes people take wilder sexual risks, thus worsening the spread of the disease. Green said that what works is fidelity to one’s spouse.  8/

5. The RH law is based on wrong economics.

Is there a correlation between population growth and economic development? “No clear association” 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, population control is not among the five ingredients found by the 2008 Commission on Growth and Development headed by Nobel prize winner Michael Spence. The growth factors are: governance, openness to knowledge, stable finances, market allocation, investment and savings.   10/  Our country loses 300 billion pesos to corruption every year.
