I want this to be the first and the last time I write something about politics, and the limit of my knowledge about it.
I am not credible in terms of explaining the law, etc, etc, blah, blah, blah, and I also know that it is not easy running a democratic country, where every voice counts, every opinion is important, every word you said shall be heard and be considered.
But is it not right to apply simple logic to what we thought are simple things. Like the RH Bill. It is still a bill, you know. And people are making a big deal about it, and rightfully so, this determines the future of this country. I have a lot of questions of course, questions that I cannot even ask because the answer is all over the web, it is searchable, tangible, and well, people might just shut me up and even ask me to read the news.
I get confused. What is the real deal. Do I even need to participate in this? Do I have to state my opinion out loud, knowing that there are people that might be offended? Yes, I can, because this is a free country after all. But hey, there’s no need to argue right?
What I am questioning right now is, do we really need this to be passed as law?
Aren’t there laws already stating medical assistance to those who need it?
Laws that obligates medical institutions to attend to those who may need care, and needs saving,, and to not discriminate. To help whoever those who might need it regardless of their social status, religion, gender, etc.
Excuse me, I am ranting here. But I also have my reservations regarding the bill. If it is main purpose is to spread awareness and provide medical assistance to the majority, then I think we are being bullshit here. Because first and foremost, it is the responsibility of the government to address this problem.
I think they are pointing to the ability to reproduce of filipino women as the cause and they give RH BILL as the solution. Which is completely pointless for me. Is family planning not taught in small baranggays, health centers, and seminars for couples, for free? No?
And now, here we are, willing to cash out for a bill, that is already existing.
I know we are not stupid, but why this? Why do we let ourselves be bullied by those in power.
Now this is just a full blown rant?
What am I doing to help the country? What?
I am paying the fucking taxes, I obey rules, I respect men in uniform, I respect other people’s opinion, and still there are people accusing me of inaction, being passive?
I don’t know. I wouldn’t want to give up, because I am working for it.
(Now this is just a full blown rant)
