Jesus was once an Unborn Child too April 25, 2011

Christ sanctified the womb and the innocent children who are its temporary residents. This artwork says it all.

Sadly, some of the proponents of the RH/abortion bill want to pretend that some unborn children aren’t even people. They say the fertilized egg must first be implanted in the uterus (which happens some three to eight days after conception) before it is considered a human life.

Some will even say that they become people much later than that. Worse, some even think they aren’t people until they emerge from the womb.

Worst of all, some don’t care at all whether the unborn are people or not — it’s supposed to be a “woman’s right” to decide to kill them or not!

Let’s not leave any doubt: abortion is murder (killing of the innocent).

Some contraceptives actually kill the unborn (for example, by preventing the fertilized egg — a newly-conceived human being — from implanting in the uterus. With nowhere to implant, the baby eventually dies. This is an early-term abortion.

Such contraceptives are called abortifacient contraceptives — meaning they can cause abortions.

HB 4244, the current number for the so-called “reproductive health/responsible parenthood” bill in the Lower House, will spend millions (or billions) funding these deadly abortifacient contraceptives. It should really be called the RH/ABORTION bill.

Pimentel replies to Robredo April 12, 2011

A few weeks ago, DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo overstepped his authority as he tried to nip in the bud a growing popular movement among local government units (LGUs) against the RH/abortion bill. He declared that barangays have no power to enact ordinances that restrict the sale and disribution of contraceptives (Robredo warns LGUs against making anti-RH law – Inquirer.net).

Barangay Ayala Alabang in Muntinglupa, followed by seven barangays in Balanga City, Bataan, have already passed such pro-life ordinances. More LGUs intend to follow suit.

Robredo’s blunder was pointed out by none other than former Senator Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel, Jr., the father of the Local Government Code that limits the powers of Robredo’s office. Pimentel’s response is reproduced below.

After reading Pimentel’s brilliant riposte, one has to ask: Does Rebredo even understand the Local Government Code?!!! As DILG Secretary he should!
