Have you seen children on the street hunting for food from morning till dawn? The kind of innocent faces who will block your way when your hands have something that can fill their aching stomachs. Have you ever seen little angels walking around the busy streets at night looking for a safe haven to settle and let the darkness pass? Yes, I do. I always do. And these children always made me go to work empty handed. What can I do, I’d rather let them have my food than see them roaming around hunting for a not so decent place to lay down while their parents are nowhere to be found.
While we're all sitting comfortably in front of our computers, innocent lives who's existence on earth was not of their choice are in great danger of sickness, rushing vehicles and famine out there.
Responsible parenthood and birth spacing is one of the hottest issue in the country today. The headlines in newspapers and the topic of the news every day. The government had seen that passing the Reproductive Health (RH) Bill is one of the solutions to lessen not only the percentage of street children and to alleviate poverty but also to to ensure that each child will not be deprived of his basic needs (food, shelter and clothing) and be given the chance to rightful education till he can support him/herself.
My curiosity on this topic leads me to reading the whole content of the said bill, and visit forums which are in much debate of the topic. The debate of the pros and anti RH Bill leads people on the rally streets and on the House of Representatives.
I have my opinion and my excuses to readers who may have different perspective as mine. If what I read was right, I don’t have reasons to say no to RH Bill. For me it will just serve as a guide on how to become responsible parents and to use birth control alternatives of your choice except abortion ( I’m against it too) but no one will hinder you for having the children you want for your own.
You can have 3, 4, 5 or 10 children and more than that if you want. But make sure you can provide them with clothes for them to wear, roof to protect them from sunshine and rain, food to feed their stomach, and ample time to show them love and affection…….if not, then try to reconsider.
