Debates on HB 5043

I participated in this lively debate on the on the RH bill, otherwise known as HB 5043,
otherwise known as "An Act Providing for a National Policy on
Reproductive Health, Responsible Parenthood, and Population Development".
(My, what a kilometric title).

The blog entry at filipinovoices.com is entitled "The Catholic Magisterium on Contraception".

We debated some very interesting points. Check it out here.

Meanwhile, Fr. Joaquin G. Bernas, S.J., writes in his Inquirer a column
entitled "Church, Constitution and the RH bill", detailing the areas that
need further discussion. Bulls-eye there, Father.

And now here's a quote from Albert Schweitzer:

"Ethics, too, are nothing but reverence for life. This is what gives me the fundamental principle of morality, namely, that good consists in maintaining, promoting, and enhancing life, and that destroying, injuring, and limiting life are evil.".

- Civilization and Ethics, 1949
