Reproductive Health Bill: Sen. Miriam Santiago vs Cong. Manny Pacquiao

The House of Representatives started the argument on Reproductive Health Bill, the agenda is to pass or not to pass the said bill.Once the pro RH Bill gathered enough votes to pass the bill, it will be turnover to the Senate.

Sen. Miriam Santiago is the author of the RH Bill in the Senate, she is going after Cong. Manny Pacquioa, he might "misleading" the debate she said. The lady Senator is saying. "Kaming mga senador nga hindi pumapasok sa boxing. Pero kung gusto mo, puwede rin." (We senator can't enter boxing but if he wants to,maybe we can").

The lady Senator gave her own interpretation of the biblical quote "Go forth and multiply". "The Bible does not say, 'Go out to the world.' It sounds very much like God is encouraging us to go out and copulate in public. God said in the Bible, "Go forth and multiply." That meant that God wanted man, not necessarily to literally multiply, but to go out to work with the rest of the human beings of this planet and to apply the stewardship theory. Meaning to say, taking care of each other, who are all in the planet living together.
She felt that, there is "element of hypocrisy" on Cong. Pacquaio's stand. Sen. Santiago revealed that Jinkee, Cong. Pacquiao's wife, was caught saying she used contraceptive pills to prevent pregnancy.

When Cong. Pacquiao was asked about Sen. Santiago's revelation, he said "dati yun di na ngayon" (that was before not anymore"). The pound for pound king wore a violet tie yesterday (violet is the color of pro RH bill), when he visited CBCP  . When asked about his tie he said "Heto yung tie na hinanda ng wife ko" and  "Hindi yan sa tie, sa puso at pananampalataya yan" (This is the tie that my wife prepared, and It's not about the color of the tie, it's in the heart and faith).

CBCP will not used Cong. Pacquiao's popularity, the church is thankful that they have someone as popular as him, that support their good intention.
