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.
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.
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.

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 [...]

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…
