DOH ad hazardous to nation’s health

02:27 AM June 07, 2014

With due respect, please allow me to express what my conscience dictates.

The Department of Health (DOH) advertisement on family planning is unhealthy. It teaches the unfortunate, financially poor children to complain and eventually rebel and question their parents for having a big family. Vices are portrayed rather than values.

Thousands of children see this ad and thousands are taught how to fight back.

The government boasts of economic progress without considering the truth that human capital is what makes this country economically growing.

All of us Filipinos wish to have genuine “better lives.” I pray that the Lord up above bless the Filipinos who pray with a sincere heart.
