Why a medical doctor is against the RH Bill

Kudos to Dr. Abraham Cruz for writing what is Making a Truly Informed Choice: Why I Am Against the RH Bill. Dr. Cruz graduated his MD from the University of Santo Tomas. He is currently an Instructor, Department of Pharmacology at the Far Eastern University – Dr. Nicanor Reyes Medical Foundation, Institute of Medicine and an
MS Pharmacology Candidate, University of the Philippines Manila – College of Medicine.

If your asking me how good the article is, here is how he starts his article:
While my stand against the RH Bill stems from the initial fact that I am a Catholic first and a physician second, this faith must be enlightened with reason, lest we reduce our faith to natural religiosity, sentimentality, and pious intentions.

And here is how he concludes his article by quoting Dean Tony La Viña of the Ateneo School of Government has said, it is:
“… the love between husband and wife, love for children and family that is the fruit of that love, and ultimately the love of God that forgives us and that enables us to be faithful to the Word in spite of our sinfulness and scarce resources. This is a beautiful message and the Church should not be ashamed of it.”
Since the good dean is from the Ateneo, I am hoping that some of the Jesuits there concur with what he wrote.
