The Philippines, being one of the most highly regarded Catholic country in the world tries to stand where many other Christian countries have failed or given up the fight for morality.
USA alone, being said to be a Christian nation has fallen into the philosophy of agnosticism allowing same sex marriages, experiments upon different types of anti-human life birth methods, and even legalizing abortion in many of its states.
This is not only true within the USA but it has rampantly spread all over the world. The acceptance of such modern philosophy has regarded the once illegal and immoral acts as okay and is now very popular that everybody, even the most intellectual people to believe that there is nothing immoral with such acts.
Morality is becoming more and more unpopular to our society. Let’s talk about divorce for instance. A couple was once very sure to get married because they are very much in-love, until the time they misunderstand each other and decides to break their vow to each other and there covenant with God. The Philippines had been listed as the Number 1 country not to support Divorce and until now, divorce is illegal. This is followed by Vatican being second and the 95% Catholic Malta, a country in Africa. But Malta is now undergoing there own process of legalizing divorce within this year making the Philippines as the only country to stand up against it aside from Vatican.
The society sees this as a foolish pride, but if you are really a Christian, you know that Jesus Christ forbade divorce and it isn’t a foolish pride at all but an unpopular moral truth that the majority wishes to eradicate.
The RH-bill is the same. By human weakness and standards, the use of contraception will help solve and control population, that’s what they say. This anti-life bill wishes to promote “modern methods” apart from the existing natural methods. The bill does not detail out what the modern methods really are but we can clearly say that these are things made by man to prevent the formation of a human life. In other words, these are methods that allow man to play God.
Within the RH-Bill Section 2 of the Declaration of the Policy, it states:
“The State recognizes and guarantees the exercise of the universal basic human right to reproductive health by all persons, particularly of parents, couples and women, consistent with their religious convictions, cultural beliefs and the demands of responsible parenthood. Toward this end, there shall be no discrimination against any person on grounds of sex, age, religion, sexual orientation, disabilities, political affiliation and ethnicity.”
Let me emphasize on the one I underlined and placed bold letters. According the statement, the RH-Bill guarantees that this will also be consistent with the person’s particular religious conviction and will never discriminate any person and the religion he/she practices. The statement is false and does not guarantee such because by the time you play God by preventing the possibility of human life to exist, it goes against any consistent moral standards and practice of a religion, particularly the Christian faith.
Section 3 of the Guiding Principles in the said bill points out that freedom of choice is guaranteed by the state. This is the one now being used by Pro-choice against Pro-life. I stand however that one does not dictate upon which person should be formed in someone’s womb and which one should be prevented. The form of life is God’s to make and not man.
The RH-bill has its good side, the promotion of life, but it also supports the dark side as well, the choice to prevent what God may have declared to blow life.
I have read the entire article of the bill and I honestly can say that it has very, very good intentions from very, very concerned people. However, the solution is blatant and goes against moral standards taught to us by God.
The biggest shame is to proudly say that we are one heck of a Christian nation that implements all sorts of immorality supported by human laws and approved by the majority of Christian law-makers.
Let God, not man.
