PIA Press Release

Medical doctor opposes RH Bill

By Robert E. Roperos

Butuan City (30 November) -- Following the controversial Reproductive Health (RH) Bill which is now seeking for approval at the House of Representatives, Dr. Rene Joseph Bullecer, a medical doctor and Director for Human Life International presented salient points why there's a need to oppose the RH bill during the peace forum held Tuesday (Nov. 30) as part of the Mindanao Week of Peace celebration.

According to Dr. Bullecer, originally, RH bill is not written by any Filipino lawmakers but crafted by the UNFPA and USAID. Also, he said, it is against our constitution as the highest law of the land promotes a pro-life.

Bullecer also said RH Bill promotes immorality as it implies fornification. It is also anti-child and anti-parent bill because it promotes abortion.

Bullecer added the bill is against one's religious freedom and "against our Catholic faith as it destroys our demography," he said.

He further said poverty is an economic problem which needs economic solution and the approval of the reproductive health bill is definitely not a solution.

Meanwhile, the young medical doctor from Camiguin province said the true cause of the so-called overpopulation is the increase of the human lifespan and curbing the infant mortality rate.

When asked why the country remained to be poor, he presented six reasons. He said the country is very poor in agricultural advancement, there is an uncontrolled massive urbanization, uneven or unequal distribution of wealth, bad politics, graft and corruption and the very reason whey we are still below poverty line is "because of our mega heavy foreign debt servicing," he said.

"We deserve to become a better nation. Politics decide what kind of life we can have. So, we must take politics seriously," Bullecer disclosed. (PIA-Caraga) [top]
