reasons to fight the rh bill

Here are more reasons why concerned christians and true men of goodwill need to fight against this bill:

 It penalizes those who "“knowingly withhold information or restrict the dissemination” of information about “reproductive health,” which includes contraceptive measures that can cause abortions, especially the contraceptive “pill.”

*the ac...t claims that “conscientious objection of a health care service provider based on his/her ethical or religious beliefs shall be respected” it goes on to require such doctors to refer the patient to another doctor who will provide the service.

*The bill would also penalize “any person who maliciously engages in disinformation about the intent or provisions of this Act,” a provision that opponents fear will be used against them if they speak out against the law. 

*The bill also states that the “ideal family size” is two children and that couples will be “encouraged” to limit themselves to this number, while claiming that the goal will not be compulsory. In order to achieve this “ideal,” the bill mandates the creation of a “Local Population Officer” for every municipality in the country.

*Those who violate the prohibitions of the act will be subject to one to six months of imprisonment and a fine ranging from 10,000 to 50,000 pesos (more cash to buy more condoms perhaps).

so much for freedom in a democratic country...
