The church should stay away from RH BILL they're not the one going to feed your children when you have one. And all parents should be responsible to have children they should only have children that the can afford to feed. Not just having babies like rabit even though they knows the don't know where they're going to get the money support them. Filipinos tend to have children even though the can't even send them to school or feed them. Be responsible have babies only you can afford to feed. If you can afford to support 12 children then have 12. If you can only feed 2 then have 2 only.

Simple logic like this is too hard for many Filipinos to comprehend. It's like they are stuck in the Dark Ages where the Catholic belief of contraception is wrong etc. Even other Catholic-dominant countries such as Chile and Brazil are beginning to move away from this mentality as they are slowly becoming more educated with family planning.

I really hate government handling themselves already to fix anything, and the church is adding commotion to the picture which makes it worse.
I can still remember on the radio, a candidate trying to befriend a pastor so that the entire congregation would vote for him.
Most Filipinos still don't know what RH bill means. They should take time to know what it is, rather than following some radical icon.
