Reproductive health is not just a poor woman’s concern. Many brush off the need for the RH Bill thinking that it is only about sex and only for women who cannot afford to purchase modern contraception pills and condoms. But reproductive health is everyone’s concern. Think about every person you know (or are related to) who has had: a) an unwanted pregnancy, b) an additional pregnancy they could not afford, c) has considered terminating a pregnancy, or d) who has suffered from pregnancy-related complications and you will know that RH should concern every person who is able to bring life into the world and bear what should be the joyful responsibility of caring for it.

Read on for a no-nonsense run down of what the RH Bill means and why it’s relevant to you.

    I hope the RH bill survives the onslaughts of the Catholic Church.Couples should be able to decide how many children they can afford to feed and educate properly! Remember, A Catholic education does not come free!

    Prevention not abortion!

    I prefer quality to quantity anytime!.

    The dialectics is all good. But I've researched the results of implementing RH bills in other countries. Most of them have been harmful to women, psychologically and physically. The culture of the people are also affected. They don't value life as much.

    I personally agree that RH Bill should be implemented for it could gives a lot of benefits to all of us. Too bad,some information given by our theology teacher in our school about RH Bill are mistakenly being taught.

    This is a very misleading article and individuals should do some real research to make an informed decision. These 10 items are exactly what the PRO RH camp would like the general public to think about the bill. However, once you actually read the bill and the proposed amendments it does not take much to realize it is a population control bill at its core. The RH Bill won't affect the middle and upper class as much as those living below the poverty line.

    All the items in the bill, when it comes to contraception, are already available to anyone anytime but the bill wants to make these items free (targeting the poor) and mislead people to think that this is a best solution to unplanned pregnancy and STDs. Planned Parenthood a major backer of the Bill already had to announce that the major cause of unplanned teen pregnancy is not failure to use contraception but the failure of contraception to work. If you support the bill because of the 10 items in this blog post then you have been mislead.
