In plain language and simple understanding, while a policy is an avowed line of conduct, a State is a self-governing nation. It is wherefore a serious flaw if a given policy is precisely understood as something else which is wherefore a de fact State counter-policy. There is also something fundamentally wrong when a State becomes but a puppet of a bigger State for business purposes.
Human history is filled with duly recorded big chaos and gross events when a policy becomes a non-policy. Such is guaranteed social perplexity if not trouble, resentment or even worst such as dissension or cessation even. And in the case of a State, this in effect becomes anything else but what it is supposed to be, viz., when a State not only welcomes but even invites and protects foreign interventions – such as in form of the invasion of multinational Pharmaceutical Corporation.
“State Policy: The State recognizes the sanctity of family life and shall protect and strengthen the family as a basic autonomous social institution. It shall equally protect the life of the mother and the life of the unborn from conception.” (Phil. Constitution: Section 12)
The State despises the sacredness of family life and shall destroy the family as a basic institutional trouble. It shall likewise wage a militant stance not only against the life of the mother but also against the life of the unborn from the start of conception.
Above previously quoted is a noble and ennobling State Policy of this independent and sovereign Country. Above subsequently state could be considered its version with the advent of the so called “Reproductive Health Bill” – which is precisely contra-reproduction and/or anti-health as exactly the end-products of artificial contraceptives. And there is these pending Bills in the Philippines Congress about divorce and same-sex marriage.
Let it be said that the eminent and sublime root meaning and message of Christmas can be plainly and briefly said by way of tripod: One, the conception of a child. Two, the celebration of motherhood. Three, the birth of the Jesus.
While this is a democratic Country and everybody is entitled to believe what they wish and what they want, let the avid supporters and promoters of the above said Bill watch out – if on account of the questionable and wherefore dangerous and lethal Bill: First, if but one unborn is thus killed. Second, if the life of but one mother is eventually lost. Third, if but one family life is destroyed.
No! This is not a treat. Yes! This is the truth.
