    1. CBCP, paano ninyo ma proteksyoan kami, e, mga mahihirap at halos walang makain sa araw-araw. Samantala, kayo’y may malalawak na lupain kahit saan-saan sa bansang Pinas-maraming pera ang inyong tanggapan- Matagal na…Kami ay mahihirap pa rin. Malaki at malayo ang pagitan natin, paano nyo kami ma proteksyonan? RH Bill ay inayawan ninyo, e, hindi naman kayo nagkaroon ng pamilya dahil bawal sa mga obispo ang mag-asawa, tama ba?

    2. It is the “moral imperative” for parents to watch over their children and provide them with food, shelter, clothing, proper education, religious, and moral training.

      Hence, parents have a moral obligation to plan the number of their children and keep it under control. The Bible states that a parent who does not provide for the
      needs of his own household is worse than an unbeliever.

      Since modern methods of contraception — by preventing married couples from
      having any unplanned pregnancies — assist in supporting this Christian
      principle, we should support their use as long as these methods are empirically
      not abortifacient,”

      In fact, the natural method should not be supported. These methods are not only unnatural and ineffective but they are also immoral, since they contradict the commandment that God has given to married couples… not to deprive one another of intimate marital relations for long, extended periods of time.

      Any abstinence at all for a married couple is supposed to be with the mutual consent of husband and wife and not for the purpose of preventing pregnancy.

    3. It’s only the Catholic Church that vigorously opposes the RH Bill.

      Among the faith-based organizations who are supportive of the measure – as members of the IPPRP – are:

      Iglesia Ni Cristo

      the National Council of Churches in the Philippines;

      United Church of Christ of the Philippines;

      Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches;

      United Methodist Church;

      Philippines for Jesus Movement;

      Iglesia Filipino Independiente;

      Christian and Missionary Alliance Churches of the Philippines;

      Seventh-Day Adventist;

      Salvation Army;

      Catholics for Reproductive Health, and

      Episcopal Church of the Philippines.

    4. CATHOLIC-CENSUS PROTECTORS
      The Catholic bread basket (potential newborn into the fold) is being threatened unless they (CBCP) can patch up the leaking-hole (RH Bill) before it’s too late.
