Thoughts About the RH Bill

9:16:00 PM
I know this is quite late for something to be posted but I just want to share it.
This is my thoughts about the most recent talk of the town, the government and the church. This is my own opinion with the RH Bill or the Reproductive Health Act. So if ever I may touch someone’s ego or idea and belief, I’m already laying my apologies and hope for your understanding.

I grow up in a very simple family. I couldn't differentiate on what class of the society our family belongs to, we’re not rich and we’re not poor. I could not also consider our family as middle class because my parents don’t have any stable job. I can only say that we’re just in the middle of above poor and below middle class.

I only have one sibling, not really sure of the reasons why they did not add another one in the family but perhaps they are already contented having both of us, a boy and a girl. On my mother’s side they were supposed to be 12, two of which died during child birth and on my father side they were 8. So imagined living with that number of kids and the size of the family.

Now so much with the background and on with our main topic, the RH Bill. Right during the intense debate about this matter I got curious about the main thrust of the bill. I tried to get a copy of the bill and tried to read those long sentences and elaborated paragraphs. So here it is according to my understanding and some of my explanations.

The RH bill is not about abortion. If preventing the sperm and egg cells to meet during is already abortion then I can say that we’re all abortionist in some time of our life. You know what I mean.

RH Bill is not all about condoms. Though I’m standing on the side of PRO, still, there are some things that I don’t like how RH Bill is being portrayed to the public. Condoms are not the only picture of RH Bill. Read the whole article first.

RH bill is about women empowerment. I praise the women who stands firm on promoting the RH Bill. Imagine the emotion and physical baggage that women are carrying during pregnancy? Nutrients and physical health doesn’t just come up in a snap so please do give women a time to rest and rejuvenate their bodies. It’s really annoying seeing woman being left behind for another woman just because they are “losyang” (haggard looking). Who in the first place made that to them?! Just an understanding for the men, women are not objects. There’s always time for that!

RH Bill is not all about sex. Some people are just too paranoid about how teens can easily get condom and have sex. Hello! Are you all in the age of the dinosaurs? Before RH Bill was proposed condoms are already made available in the market in which can easily be bought by teens and the sex thing, well, the age of teens having sex are getting younger and younger and that’s because there’s no proper education. The more it is hidden to them, the more they become curious about it. Worst they learn it from the wrong source.

RH Bill is about management and organizing the family. When we say managing and organizing is not just the things, the food, the shelter, and the finances but also the whole being of each member of the family, especially the individuality of a child. If you will look closely most of the families who are raising five to ten kids can’t hardly manage each and everyone as a result some of them went on to the bad side of the road. The Bible did not just say in Genesis 1:28 to “…Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth…” it also got an instruction at the end of the sentence “… and subdue it.” So it does not just say multiply but it is also instructing to manage or control not only the creation that surrounds man but man itself as well.

Child play... The New Generation!

10:29:00 AM
This article was written for a company newsletter almost a decade ago.  Though I was writing back then, my work wasn't polished enough so there are still grammar error and other mistakes that may be found in it.  So I just want to share this and I hope that it will give some information for the readers.

Fight… Fire down the hole… Attach… Destroy them… Finish him!   Those are the voices that you’ll hear in video and computer games.  Shocking?  Yes, these words and voices are for real but the most shocking of all s what the children see.  But what drives children to still play these video games?

Video Games and there alike as a whole are created to entertain people, adult and children.  Most of them are fun to play with especially when you know how to play the game.  These games vary in their creation it may be as easy as Pacman and as difficult as Starcraft or Counterstrike but all in all they are all just click and play.  But what really drives them?  One thing for sure its visual, something look beautiful and appealing to the eye is worth watching plus add up the interactivity then viola!  You got yourself hooked up.

A lot of Filipino children don’t have this kind of entertainment showcase in their house.  So how would these children play as often as they want too?  Let me see… hm... video games.. where can we find these video games?  Well to name some, there are lots of Arcades in malls and play station in some computer cafĂ© or rentals.  So that’s where they get to play those games.  A walk away from their house and one ride of jeep to the mall makes every video game accessible to kids anywhere and everywhere.

I remember when I was still a child the first video game that I have played was made by Atari.  Shooting the parachute falling from above which are rendered in a black and white, the main objective was don’t let those parachuter land on your territory.  Too simple ha!  As a kid back then I was really amazed and that was a decade and a half ago.  Now, these video games had evolved and become more appealing to children and they can easily influenced by whatever they see and hear.  They are more likely compared to a computer what would be the input would be the output.

Just recently, I manage to read some article from the Philippine Pediatric Society about the effect of the video and computer games that children play.  It is said that most of these children who’s playing computer or video game lives a sedentary lifestyle.  What was a sedentary lifestyle?  According to the Philippine Pediatric Society it is a motionless activity of body parts and if children are living this kind of lifestyle it may increase the possibility of having a cardiovascular disease, obesity or morbidity.  Why?  It is because they don’t exercise and do something.   There are only few parts of their body does the movement.  Some of these are the eyes, hands, fingers and the butt.  Sitting for hours will sure give you a Guinness World Record.   According to the article these are just the physical effect, so meaning there are more side effects.   In terms of socialization children become socially inadequate and immature.  A child with a playmate instills the feeling of having a playmate unlike in video or computer games, they instill the feeling of competition and reset button whenever they fail to do the task.  Also according to the article children do have hard time coping with frustration and failure because of the idea of resetting.  It is also expressed in the article that children may become short-tempered, aggressive and prone to commit violence because of some gruesome scene in the game.   It is indeed true because you will really notice it to children in the community and it shocking to hear a six year old kid saying some of those words.   

The rampant increase of these video and computer games are incontrollable but if parents have established a deeper relationship with their child and having a parental guidance or a family conversation once in a while telling that this games are not good to play for their age.  It is also good if parents will encourage their children to play out-door games like run and tag or the like with this it will instill and restore the value of child play.
