This man is hastening his trip to hell!
Another headache of a news from Interaksyon.com
Besides food, water, and shelter, the Philippine government should also consider reproductive health care services as among the needs of the victims of typhoon Yolanda, a former lawmaker and health advocate said. [What?!?!?]
Contraceptives, for one, are essential in evacuation centers, which the government should provide, according to former Albay Representative Edcel Lagman. [This maniac is trying desperately to make us believe that contraceptives are essential medicines! They are not!]
Lagman, one of the main authors of the Reproductive Health (RH) law, lamented that the implementation of the new law and its implementing rules and regulations (IRR) remain on hold because of a Supreme Court order.
"While the implementation of the RH Law and its IRR awaits adjudication by the High Court, the DOH (Department of Health) can make do with its general and residual health authority to address the maternal and newborn health concerns in the crisis situations as well as the contraceptive needs in the evacuation centers," he said in a statement. [The PR group of Lagman is working, obviously being paid for by the pharmaceutical companies who would benefit the most from this law, and of course including Lagman and Garin who got the udnersecretary post in the Health Department.]
According to Lagman, the RH Law provides for the "systematic and integrated provision of reproductive health care to all citizens, prioritizing women, the poor, marginalized and those in vulnerable and crisis situations.”
"The unprecedented disaster caused by Yolanda constitutes definitely a vulnerable and crisis situation," he added.
Quoted in a newspaper report, the World Health Organization (WHO) said it expects at least 12,000 babies to be born next month in the areas hardest-hit by typhoon Yolanda based on demographic statistics in the areas.
Julie Hall, WHO country representative, said the agency is concerned about the situation because pregnant women and newborn babies are vulnerable when it comes to disasters. [So when does the contraceptives come in here?]
Lagman said the RH law mandates the local government units and the DOH to ensure that a minumum initial service package for reproductive health, including maternal and neonatal health care kits and services as defined by the DOH, shall be given proper attention in crisis situations such as disasters and humanitarian crises.
“Temporary facilities such as evacuation centers and refugee camps shall be equipped to respond to the special needs of the following situations: normal and complicated deliveries, pregnancy complications, spread of HIV and STIs, and gender-based violence," he added. [Delivery facilities, no problem! I am for it. What about the condom suggestion of the condom minded Lagman?]
I did not print the other parts of the article as it just features the useless rants of Gabriela.
Lagman is going to hell with this kind of attitude.
People are dying from disease and hunger and he thinks they need contraceptives because they still would be having sex in this terrible time!
He is just sick!
What are our bishops doing against him? He is causing public scandal and they are not doing anything against him!
He remains a Catholic and the shepherds are not doing against this wolf in sheep's clothing!
Pray for him.
