Lately the gong of contraceptives is ringing again. Some say its our choice to use. The Church says don’t you dare.
Well, if I may, take my stand on this, I say, don’t you dare.
For narrow focus, it’s a matter of personal choice. But lets see it differently. Big picture view this time. Then its a matter of national concern.
For the unmarried, usage of contraceptives brings out a feeling of immunity for the consequence of doing something wrong in the first place. It alters proper thinking of the minds of young adults. Especially with the provocative advertisement we see on tv and billboards. Its basically suggestive to doing it without thinking of the outcome. It promotes a society with disregard for the rights of women. A condom is a bandage solution to a problem.
And why do we want to control our population anyway? Is it because we are afraid that we will become a nation of gaping mouth with nothing to eat? Damn! People are gold! The trick is make them all productive!
Give them jobs! Make them till the land and harvest the seas! Arestohin ang tambay and force them to farm! That one tambay will be able to feed 3 people at the least if he farms. Imagine all the able Filipinos working. Imagine a nation full of productive people. Why would you cut your hands?!! The more the hands the more the output! The better the economy! The stronger the Philippine nation!
So what does the government need to do to harness the potential of its people? Give more focus on education. Create more productive state owned economic institutions. Say, government managed farm cooperatives. Revise the penal law. Make the inmates more productive. You do the rest of the thinking… Point made….
MABUHAY ANG PILIPINAS!!!!!
