How Pro-Life Are You?

12 Jul

Your stance as a PRO-LIFE is definitely distinguishably palpable and admirable. You fight with all your might for the welfare of the UNBORNS, and would prevent any factors that will harm them, right from the very point that LIFE begins. You ardently believe that life begins the moment the sperm fertilizes the ovum. Yes, so does the many (including us) agree with you on that, even if the definition indeed of when life exactly begins remain still to be controversial, even among those regarded as experts in that particular field of discipline.

But just how admirable your being a prolife is, that’s the same magnitude how disgusting you are spreading lies. You label contraceptives abortifacients. All experts, those who think rationally than you do, agree that contraceptives prevent fertilization to take place. If no fertilization happens, then there’s no life that forms. (You must agree with this as you emphatically annunciate it to be so). When there is no life formed, there is nothing to abort. Thus, how can a contraceptive act as abortifacient? You’re no experts in that field let alone have sufficient medical background, yet you act and talk superior than them. You are challenged to file a class suit against the manufacturers of these contraceptives. Yes, you can do that, with the billions you amass every mass. But why don’t you? Those that you are saying are of course LIES; you, who are so righteous, judgmental perverts and experts of morality, know that lying is an act of sin. Or doesn’t it matter anymore if you are committing an act of sin as long as you convince your clout to believe your lies?

BUT… until what extent of their lives will you fight for? Just until they’re born? What about afterwards?

Unplanned pregnancies are so rampant they comprise >50% of the total pregnancies. What do they end up with? Abortion, dumping of live borns at garbage bins or sewers and then left to die, street children, and then children being forced to join the labor force. Is this what you envisioned their life would become, after all your valiant efforts to fight for their welfare whilst in pregnancy? Shouldn’t being a pro-life also entails ensuring that their offsprings will have a good quality of life after birth?

EMPOWERMENT vs. CONTROL

During the time of Jesus, he said “give them fish, and they will live for a day. Teach them how to fish, and they can live a lifetime.” Since then, Jesus has encouraged EMPOWERMENT for his followers to survive. But how does empowerment apply?

Empowerment is:

  • When a family has free will and varied options on how to plan their family. Consequently because they were able to plan, without restriction,
  1. parents are able to provide for the family; parents don’t have to work overseas in order to augment family income, thus parents also performs their supervisory role over their children; parents are able to save for their retirement, and do not end up as nannies of their grandchildren
  2. children are able to receive all vaccines and thus fare better against these vaccine-preventable diseases; they do not contribute to under-five mortality burden; grow up as healthy individuals and thus a healthy society in return
  3. children are able to go to school instead of being forced into child labor; receive good education that will prepare them as they enter the labor force during adulthood.

Control is…

  • when you blind your followers and limit their options. Consequently, the options you have provided fail more than succeed.
  • impose your belief, whether rational or not, to others who do not necessarily share your views
  • when your followers keep on feeling indebted to you; when they always seek and rely on your approval;
  • when you use your position and blackmail your followers with abomination, excommunication and eternal damnation
  • when you label those who adapts a modern evidence-based, legal, ethically sound practices as terrorists, insurgents, filibusters, demons, just so you can get what you want
  • when you extend your duties and powers beyond pastoral and shepherding to governing.
  • when you suppress truth from surfacing and impose what was “traditionally” accepted truth as infallible.

My religion classes way back then taught me that one of the gifts of the holy spirit to us humans is FREEDOM and FREE WILL. Clearly, this is being contradicted, oppressed by some who thinks their power is limitless.

    “During the time of Jesus, he said “give them fish, and they will live for a day. Teach them how to fish, and they can live a lifetime.” Since then, Jesus has encouraged EMPOWERMENT for his followers to survive. But how does empowerment apply?”

    In the first place, you’re mistaken Jesus never said such a thing! He said to Andrew and Peter, “I will make you fishers of men”. Your quote is from a Chinese proverb.

    At any rate, if you don’t want to get pregnant, heck, don’t do the deed? Even animals which are driven by instinct only copulate to reproduce and that is dictated by nature’s fertility cycle. There will be no abortion if people sed their sexual capacity properly. According to the data of the Guttmacher Institutute, I think that 60% of those who go for abortion are contraceptive users. It is very easy to plan a family and it costs nothing, just abstain. When a husband loves his wife, he will temporarily sacrifice his urges in order for his wife not to get pregnant, THAT IS REAL LOVE! Good day.

      sex has its health benefit. if couples want to do it even not for the purpose of reproduction, why limit them? again, you are shoving your stern belief to those who dont necessarily share your views.
      FREE WILL!

        Excuse me I am not gay so I know what it is to REALLY enjoy sex and I am happily married. Me and my wife can have sex and enjoy it. NOBODY is PREVENTING us to do so. But of course, we know when our act can result to pregnancy and we are capable of having discipline which I guess is something that should be learned instead of just encouraging people without discipline to do it.

        well, my blog is “how prolife are you…” disprove first the points stated in the blog. dont deviate.
        but if you’re a responsible couple, good job. now allow the govt to reach to our poor fellowmen, dont deprive them of this very beneficial reproductive health access.

      why a myopic eyesight?
      sa negosyo, kailangan mo maglabas ng pundo para sa puhunan. pero kinalaunan, kikita ang negosyo mo.
      Ganon din sa panukalang RH Bill, sa umpisa, gagastos para sa mga kailangan. Kinalaunan, pag hindi na malaki ang populasyon, wala na masyado gastos sa sakit, sa mga pagkamatay ng mga babae dahil sa pagbubuntis, sa mga pagpapalaglag na di naman dapat nangyari kung nagplano lang sila ng kanilang pamilya.

        Excuse me but that is a pathetic, that instead of resolving the problem presently we are thinking of the future. I am not saying not to think of the future but it would be a very stupid since the problem is at the PRESENT and the solution is needed NOW. Instead of spending billions for RH why not spend it for education which anybody will agree as a real and genuine solution. And by the way, I guess your education has helped you live a self sustaining life, why wouldn’t you let the poor have it as well instead of thinking not to let them reproduce.

    Our belief in freewill is based on what it is and that is the will to do ONLY good not just what we want. Because when freewill was given, Adam and Eve still haven’t eaten the fruit of knowledge. Basically, now that we have inherited original sin we seem to be exploiting what freewill really is.

    “sex has its health benefit. if couples want to do it even not for the purpose of reproduction, why limit them? again, you are shoving your stern belief to those who dont necessarily share your views. FREE WILL!”

    Are animals less healthy than us given that they only copulate every cycle?? I think that statement is flawed. From a physical point of view, it sinks but from a psychological point of view maybe it can make sense. But the problem with OC’s is that it makes one’s psyche apt to confuse love with lust. Free will, hmmm an interesting topic. Are we not free to buy OC’s now under the current system? Where is the free will in mandating people to attend family planning talks as a requirement to get a marriage license or for the mandatory sex education of school children? It seems like the only “free will” you are willing to consider is the freedom to have sex on demand but then in those cases, where is the woman’s free will in refusing it? When is a woman more likely to be respected or when is a husband more likely to respect his wife’s request of refusing sex, if she is on the Pill or if she isn’t on it?

    “sa negosyo, kailangan mo maglabas ng pundo para sa puhunan. pero kinalaunan, kikita ang negosyo mo.”
    13 billion a year for RHBill, right? Question: How many years do you think will the Philippines see an ROI with this rather than placing it in rural modernization and development? It took about 1 generation for small countries to reduce their size and now that they hav done it, they want to increase it. Why? because once that contraceptive mentality is embraced, the next generation no longer wants to have children and then you go into a demographic decline. What the RHBill will do is kill the goose that lays the eggs,HUMAN RESOURCES.
