RH BILL: To SUPPORT or To ABORT? “Love makes life “This saying proves that our opposite attracts are the reason behind why you, me and them are here in the whole world. Humans are responsible to make new generations. That’s why as we get older every day, new lives our being born. As a negative reaction, population growth also grows thicker every day. That’s why RH BILL or Reproductive Health Bill was created. Having aired it in the media, most Filipinos talked about it and became RH BILL, their vocabulary. Why? Because it’s stated that, this BILL is the way for a better future. It deals with the controlling of population on a certain country. It also promotes two methods of family planning, Chemical and Mechanical method. Under Chemical Method are the use of pills, injectables and spermicides. While the Mechanical Method are the use of condoms, IUD or Intrauterine Device, Vasectomy and Tubal Ligation. All of these are concern for the prevention of life formation and giving spaces for parents to nurture their child. Having the idea about this act, makes you decide where to stand. But, are these reasons enough? What are the consequences?

For us teenagers were not very familiar with this topic, because it’s not in our stage to think of these thoughts or to put it into our minds. But, let’s accept the fact that were now only miles away in entering this stage, so we must have an initial idea on how to live with it. Besides knowing these things make us a wise man on choosing the right or wrong. Let’s go back to business. God created life, so we must respect his ways on how to deal with it. Lord thy God told us in His 10 Commandments, “Thou shall not kill”, which also synonymous that WE DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO KILL. RH BILL is concern in preventing life formation. Do killing lives and preventing lives aren’t the same? In Biology, it says that when the two gametes meet, it forms life. When you use any contraceptive, it’s either you prevent the meeting of the two gametes or you kill the product of such. These were the statements that Religious side what’s to disseminate. On the other hand, if there’s an Artificial Family Planning, we also have its opposite, termed as the “Natural Family Planning”. This family planning was obviously concerned in reproduction without the use of any chemicals or contraceptives. Its examples are Basal Body Temperature, Symptothermal Method, Cervical Mucus Method, Lactational Amenorrhea and Withdrawal Method. It is safe because from the word itself “Natural” meaning it is done by us humans with the help of our body instincts. If Science and Church have their own facts, it is time for us to decide. Where do we stand? Does RH BILL needs a support or it’s just a computer virus that needs to abort?

As I have said, I’m not mature enough to decide about these kinds of things. But also I’m not a numb to know what the right thing is. In my point of view, future must be renewed and poverty must be gone. So I’m saying that RH BILL is might be the answer. When you use any contraceptive, yes you prevent lives but no, you don’t kill them. It’s just that you choose what’s best for everyone. If you won’t use any contraceptive, unwanted pregnancy might happen. Which results to the absent of proper care or lack of food and attention. This act can also be the answer to reduce the population growth that causes poverty here in our country. They say that it’s harmful for our health, but not all the time, it can cause a bad effect only if two human beings abuse its objectives. Lord Thy God eyes don’t want to see his children suffering from the pain that we, humans did. All I’m saying is, building a family is not for those who are immature but for those who are responsible for all the happiness, trials and consequences that he and his family will overcome. To sum up all, Life is always a matter of choice; you’re the one who knows what’s the best for you. But having this freedom of choice, there’s always a right thing waiting to be chosen. It doesn’t matter if you’re PRO or ANTI in this Bill, what really matter is your future will be on the good hands, when the right time comes.

Both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought. -Anonymous

Rh Law

...The Reproductive Health law is Philippine law aiming to guarantee universal access to methods and information on birth control and maternal care. It is a way of helping people to be more advance, well prepared, and to widen up each and every individuals mind setting about our society now a day. There is this top agreement about its provisions on maternal and child health care, there is great debate on its proposal that we taxpayer and the private sector will fund and undertake widespread distribution of family planning devices such as birth control pills (BCPs) and IUDs, and as the government continue campaigning to broadcast a good information and effect on its use through health care centers nationwide. Everyone has been talking about this RH law, for some agreed and some don’t. In some part of each individual, RH law may help and it may bring into some point also that it may trigger to do such thing that will ruin someone’s life. But as the saying goes that every little thing that is too much is not good. So, it depends on how we’re going to take it and treat it as long as we are only motivated to do well and focus only to what could bring us a healthy and happy life. The bill mandates the government to “promote, without bias, all effective natural and modern methods of family planning that are medically safe and legal.” Although abortion is recognized as illegal and punishable by law, the bill states that “the government shall ensure that all women needing care for......

Rh Law-Political View

...Reproductive Health Act of 2012 or commonly known as the RH Law guarantees universal access to methods of contraception, the right to education and information, the right to reproductive health care and a solution the country’s mortal enemy: Poverty. But the question is; was it really made solely for the common good and social welfare of the Filipino people? Many Filipinos have commended the senate and congress for finally passing the RH Law, since its true nature is for the good of the majority. However, most of these people don’t see that this might serve as an avenue for corruption instead of a solution that would completely eradicate the issue of poverty in the Philippines. According to the press release given by the Senate of the Philippines, there is a whopping P21-billion in the DOH budget that seeks to address maternal and infant health. To have a culture that is family-oriented, do we really need this amount of budget for a law that declines our traditions? This law could possibly pave a way to any potential dictator by promising the people freebies and public goods. Yet what most people don’t know is that more freebies mean more opportunity for these politicians to gain power and do graft and corruption. We all know that some government officials are making these kinds of constitutions simply because they want their name to be publicized and for the people to remember them. The implementation of the RH Law might just be another way for some corrupt officials to......

Thus, the one of the causes of maternal mortality, that arising from unattended births, will be addressed. | Catholic Church teaches that married couples may take advantage of the natural cycles of the reproductive system and use their marriage precisely those times that are infertile (natural family planning); in which case the RH Bill provided otherwise. | The RH Bill can greatly alter the increasing percentage of victims of sexually transmitted diseases like HIV, Syphilis, Gonorrhea and more. | INSIGHT: It is not fair for me to make a firm stand on the issue of institutionalizing the Reproductive Health Bill for the very fact that I, like most of us, have not read the entire provisions of the Bill. And I know for sure, that most of those who continuously blabber about the negativity of the bill have not read the entire legislation as well. It is pitiful to think that most of us battle and argue about this bill when most of us are half-blind about it.

...reproductive health law Using the hashtag #Yes2RH, upload selfies on your Facebook and Twitter accounts from March 28 until April 8 in support of the reproductive health law Rappler.com Published 5:26 PM, March 27, 2014 Updated 5:26 PM, March 27, 2014 [pic] MANILA, Philippines – A social media campaign is underway to raise awareness in support of the reproductive health (RH) law, whose implementation has been put on hold by the Supreme Court for a year a now. Republic Act 10354, which would provide information on and access to reproductive health services, is under status quo ante order “until further orders” by the Supreme Court (SC). The law – probably the most polarizing national issue today – was passed on December 18, 2012, after 13 years in Congress. Anti-RH advocates immediately questioned the constitutionality of the law before the SC. The high court is expected to decide on the case in April, with insiders predicting the law could be headed for defeat in the Supreme Court. House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr has said that declaring the RH law as unconstitutional would be "a veto against the will of majority of our people." As decision time nears, frustrated reproductive health supporters are taking the fight to the social media world. The #Yes2RH campaign was initiated by Likhaan Center for Women's Health, in cooperation with several other pro-RH organization.It will run from March 28 until April 8. Likhaan calls on other RH advocates to......

Criminal Procedure

...Criminal Procedure Policy Order and liberty are two areas within criminal procedure that have tension among one another (book). Order is a stronger approach toward the criminal justice system than liberty. Liberty concerns an individual’s rights to due process, which means everybody deserves the same rights when arrested regardless of the circumstances such as poor person versus a rich person. The two models that were developed by Herbert Packer were the crime control model and the due process model (book). Both models have similarities as well as differences and not one is “good” and the other “bad” according to Packer. The two primary goals within the criminal justice system are the need to enforce law and maintain social order and the need to protect people from injustice (defenseinvestigator). The fourth, fifth, sixth, and fourteenth amendments play a signifigant role when analyzing both the due process model and the crime control model. This paper will further explore both models as well as how the models view the fourth, fifth, and sixth amendments and how the fourteenth amendment gives the same rights on a state level as well as federal. Crime Control Model The crime control model is a stern approach to the criminal justice system. As described by Hubert Packer, “the crime control model is like a conveyer belt, moving cases starting from arrest to conviction in a swift and fast process (Book).” Fact finding is what defines this model. If an officer makes......

Illegal Immigration

...that breaks the Immigration Law should be punished, even if they are not citizens of the country. According to Perez (2001), “In 1986 Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act that, among other things, granted amnesty to illegal immigrants who could demonstrate continual residence in the United States prior to 1982” (Perez, 2001). Because of this law, millions of illegal immigrants can use this act to become citizens of the United States. | According to Mirram-Webster (2012), “amnesty means that the act of an authority (as a government) by which pardon is granted to a large group of individuals” (Mirram-Webster, 2012). Therefore, amnesty is unfair and unconstitutional because all of the illegal immigrants that come into the United States are pardon after they have violated the laws in this country. Why do we continue to allow these illegal immigrants to go unpunished? If it were some of the U.S. citizens breaking this law they would not be granted amnesty; they would be treated differently, so why illegal immigrants should be pardoned? Robert Byrd (2001), a West Virginia senator, says, “Illegal immigrants who have worked for many years in the United States should not be granted amnesty” (Byrd, 2001). Illegal immigrants who work in the United States should be punished because they do not have green cards or permission from the United States to come to America. Although amnesty is an approved law, many peoples do not agree with this law. On the other hand,......

Few Good Man

...Few good man Time from time you may hear stories of abuse by the military justice "system". There are multiple destroyed and financially devastated families out there suffering heartbreak and loss at the hands of an uncaring, unfeeling and unjust process which makes a mockery of our Bill of Rights. Military justice for the majority is prefabricated according to the wishes of the local Commander, and the "trial" or "court-martial" is tantamount to a pre-ordained verdict of GUILTY. How could any court proceeding be considered fair when the "convening authority," by right of title, is given the power to select the judge, the jury and defense and prosecution attorneys? It may go "unsaid," but the implication is very clear - if the convening authority "sees fit" to bring about a court-martial, then the accused can be assumed to be guilty. What's special, or even topical, about A Few Good Men movie is it speaks to how military honor can be so readily suborned by the authoritarian impulse. And second, how the same honest pride - not to mention competence - is necessary to bring such posturing would-be tyrants to justice. The main issue the movie touches upon is military justice. A good marine abides by the following code: 1. Unit 2. Corps 3. God and 4. Country For this code to be at its effective best, it must be governed by truth and justice. What happens when truth and justice fail to be active participants of this code? Justice has been defined in many......

Stand Your Ground

...Stand Your Ground Gerald Makey SOC 205 Strayer University The “Stand-your-ground law validates a person in using any physical force including deadly force, when they are not involved in illegal activity and is in a place where he or she has the right be, they have no obligation to haven and have the right to stand their ground. A quick breakdown of this law is that it give a person legal cover in the event that they find themselves in a certain situation in which their survival, or the preservation of their family necessitates them to stand their ground and use a weapon for defense. This law can be referenced back to the Supreme Court case Beard v. United States, 158 U.S. 550 (1895). It is defined in this case that, “A man assailed on his own grounds, without provocation, by a person armed with a deadly weapon and apparently seeking his life is not obliged to retreat, but may stand his ground and defend himself with such means as are within his control; and so long as there is no intent on his part to kill his antagonist, and no purpose of doing anything beyond what is necessary to save his own life, is not guilty of murder or manslaughter if death results to his antagonist from a blow given him under such circumstances (www.justia.com). In Houston, Texas a “Stand-your-ground” case has brought a lot of attention, but also a lot of controversy. In this case Raul Rodriguez was found guilty of killing his neighbor over a dispute over loud music. Rodriguez who was a retired...

Marijuana: Medicine or Menace?

...Jacob Frederick 5-29-12 Buller Composition II Marijuana: Medicine or Menace? I have had strong feelings about this issue before it was even brought up as a topic for debate in our class. My opinion on the topic has not changed in the slightest, but I did learn a lot of interesting details concerning it. I have always felt that marijuana should be legalized, or at the very least, people with serious medical conditions should have access to it. And marijuana doesn’t even have to be legalized in my opinion, but it should definitely be decriminalized. I don’t think anyone who wants to smoke a plant that they grow themselves should have to suffer consequences, considering they are responsible in their recreational smoking. I do feel that if it were legalized, that there should be an acceptable age limit to buy and/or consume marijuana, comparable to that of alcohol. There are beneficial as well as harmful effects concerning marijuana, but that goes for a lot of things people do in everyday life. And I feel that a lot of time has been spent shining the spotlight on the harmful effects of marijuana, while little research has been done or even allowed, on the benefits of marijuana. While preparing for the debate, I encountered many sources on each end of the spectrum; including some in the middle. Many of the sources I looked at seemed rather credible, but others were most definitely biased. One example of a blatantly biased comment was, "Most pot smokers drink alcohol......
