Who do you think is the most pro-life presidential candidate for 2016?

Who do you think is the most pro-life presidential candidate? (Ang Pro-Life Partylist)

Two presidential debates have passed, yet it seems that it is still not clear who is the most pro-life presidential candidate, since the questions posed in the debates are all about mudslinging and less on the core life issues which affect the country:
  • Abortion. During the debates regarding the constitutionality of certain provisions of the RH Law related to abortion, pro-abortion groups organized the 7th Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health and Rights specifically for the promotion of abortion, as a way to influence the decision of the Supreme Court.
  • Contraception. The RH Law is already the law of the land, albeit with chemical contraceptives ruled out by the Supreme Court, since they have the secondary effect of abortion. Sec. Garin and their ilk wishes to include these chemical contraceptives in the budget, but the 1 billion peso allocation was stricken off by the Senate. The RH law must be repealed. It only makes premarital sex and adultery easy which leads to the breakdown of the Filipino family.
  • Divorce. Divorce destroys family's by separating the husband and wife, the father and the mother, and the children are torn between the two. The divorce bill which was introduced after the ratification of the RH law really attempted to rewrite the Family Code which has long protected the Filipino family.
  • Same-Sex Unions. The homosexual lobby is exceptionally strong: gay rights activists even stripped Cong. Manny Pacquiao of his Nike endorsement and prevented him from entering The Grove in Los Angeles. But amid the vicious fury of homosexuals like Vice Ganda and Boy Abunda, Manny Pacquiao remains adamant in his belief that  homosexuality is wrong as taught by Scripture. We need to support Manny Pacquiao in the Senate as a representative of the common people against the homosexual agenda.
  • Depopulation. The US National Security Study Memorandum 200, published in 1974 under Henry Kissinger, recommends the depopulation of poor countries with rapid population growth--Philippines included--so that the US can enjoy the steady supply of natural resources from these countries. That is why, US aids even today usually have accompanying conditions for the recipient government to cut down population via contraception and abortion: "No country has reduced its population growth without resorting to abortion." (NSSM 200)
  • Radical Feminism. Feminism is an ideology which espouses the supremacy--or at least the equality--of women over men, by seeing male-female relationships through the lens of Marxist power struggle and not through the Catholic view of complementarity, i.e. the woman as man's helpmate, as decreed by God in the Book of Genesis. That is why radical feminists wishes to be like men, not only in the workplace, but also in the male's incapacity of getting pregnant. So feminists advocate contraception and abortion as human rights: "I am pro-choice because I believe that the right to control your own reproduction is a fundamental right, and is protected both under our Constitution and basic human rights ideals — and I believe that fundamental right includes the right to prevent pregnancy, the right to get pregnant, the right to carry a pregnancy to term, and the right to terminate a pregnancy." (Everyday Feminism)
  • Sex Education. Sex education from Grade 5 to 4th Year High School is already mandated in the RH Law. It is easy how this can be abused to destroy the minds of the young by promoting contraception, pre-marital sex, pornography, and homosexuality, as the Americans' experience regarding the implementation of US Common Core shows us: "There is a heavy socio political content of sex throughout Common Core curriculum being taught in every grade and in every subject, the student is taught that there is a sameness of gender, there is no longer simply boys and girls according to Common Core.  The sexual content of Common Core crosses into every curriculum taught, from teaching sexuality skills in sex education courses by specially skilled and trained sex education teachers.  Sexual activities and content in included in every subject taught.  Sex is taught in the English curriculum, is included in the language curriculum, sex is woven into the science curriculum, in the math curriculum, in the social studies curriculum, and of course in biology." (Dr. Rich Swier)
  • Pornography. Pornography is objectification of men and women by reducing them to their naked bodies, copulating like animals in diverse positions for the sexual pleasure of the reader, the hearer, or viewer. Pornography is an addiction which destroys the relationships between men and women, between the husband and wife: "If you have been watching porn and masturbating excessively, chances are ‘regular porn’ doesn’t give you the same satisfaction. You may find yourself searching for ‘fetishes’ to give you that extra kick of pleasure. This is by far the best evidence of dopamine receptor damage. Having your minimum pleasure threshold increased not only leads to a desensitization of sexual pleasure, but all other forms of pleasure as well. It is no coincidence that the increasing numbers of internet users (who watch porn excessively) correlates to increasing cases of depression, social anxiety, confidence issues, and sexual dysfunctions – all of which can be attributed to a lack of healthy dopamine receptors in the brain." (Your Brain On Porn)
  • Euthanasia.Euthanasia is "mercy-killing," which means to kill the unwanted human beings in the society. Since abortion is not considered the killing of human beings by abortionists, euthanasia is limited only to those who were born alive, such as the dropping of babies over a cliff in the movie "300". But usually euthanasia is applied to those who have been in comatose like Terry Schiavo. In Netherlands, the Termination of Life on Request and Assisted Suicide (Review Procedures) Act of 2002 "states that euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide are not punishable if the attending physician acts in accordance with criteria of due care. These criteria concern the patient's request, the patient's suffering (unbearable and hopeless), the information provided to the patient, the absence of reasonable alternatives, consultation of another physician and the applied method of ending life. To demonstrate their compliance, the Act requires physicians to report euthanasia to a review committee." (Wikipedia: Euthanasia in the Netherlands). In the Philippines, euthanasia is limited to the dogs and other animals under RA 9482. Senator Miriam Santiago tried to file Senate Bill 1887 legalizing euthanasia for terminally ill human patients, but it did not progress.
Abortion, contraception, divorce, same-sex unions, depopulation, radical feminism, sex education, pornography, and euthanasia--these are the core life issues that the presidential candidates must debate on:
So I sing this song to all of my age
For these are the questions
We've got to face
For in this cycle that we call life
We are the ones who are next in line
We are next in line (After Image)
