A ligated RH Law?

By

It’s easy to see why many in the prolife community are celebrating the Supreme Court decision upholding Republic Act No. 10354 or the Reproductive Health Law as “not unconstitutional.” The eight items struck down by the high court as unconstitutional are after all the very provisions objected to by the anti-RH camp.

Bigots

When does religious faith become bigotry? When it assumes the worst about those who don’t share the same religion or religious point of view.

Science’s final answer to when human life begins

The importance of the issue of the beginning of human life was clearly put forward by professor emeritus of human embryology of the University of Arizona School of Medicine, Dr. C. Ward Kischer: “Since 1973, when Roe vs. Wade was adjudicated, there have been many socio-legal issues involving the human embryo.

Tearing of the veil

By

It’s almost unbelievable that Pope Francis became pope only less than half a year ago. The changes he has ushered, or rammed, into the Catholic Church in that short time have been so sweeping you’re hard put to recognize it as the same Church it was a year or so ago. Especially given what his predecessor, Pope Benedict, had made of it, which lent the most ironic meanings to the phrase “the Rock.”

Humble strength

By

“Pope says pill OK” was a text message I got last week, and I knew right away it was a misinterpretation of a much-publicized interview with Pope Francis, one which has been picked up all over the world, with mostly positive responses.

The sanctity of life

By

The main roots of the moral controversy on abortion (the murder of God’s children) and contraception (obstruction of God’s will) among Catholics and other Christians, is when exactly such a sacred life creation process begins and ends, with a human person created in God’s image and likeness, together with an immortal soul infused by God deliberately in order to create a singularly unique person even before birth.

Abortion and motherhood

By

What does it mean to be “proabortion”? It means to favor abortion as the primary means of terminating or avoiding a pregnancy, to favor it above contraception, which seeks to prevent and protect against an unwanted or mistimed pregnancy.

Who promotes abortion?

By

“The single biggest promoter of increased abortions in the Philippines is the anti-RH movement,” says a coalition of reproductive health groups. The groups were reacting to statements made by “anti-RH” senator Tito Sotto, who, “based on evidence copied from Facebook, blogs and other similar sources … accuses several organizations and civil society leaders of promoting abortion.”

Sober, rational and still Catholic about RH

By

Given the heated arguments, maybe the title should end with a question mark. Is it possible to be sober, rational and truthful about reproductive health (RH), and still be a good Catholic? I, for one, certainly wouldn’t give up trying. My father was prefect of the Sodality in his student days at Ateneo (and member [...]

Message for anti-RH camp

By

The Reproductive Health (RH) bill is not what you say it is. It is not a proabortion, antilife, and immoral measure.

Blurred consensus

By

“If everyone helps to hold up the sky, then a person does not tire.” This Ghanaian proverb describes a paradox that undergirds today’s fractious debate over the Reproductive Health bill. Seemingly intractable differences blur deep-rooted agreements.

Here’s something to grossly entertain you before I go into other grosser details. A 1996 Inquirer news brief about a hacking incident could have landed in the Guinness Book of World Records except that…
