The use of contraceptives
in the Philippines
What are contraceptives?
What does this have to do with me?
How does this affect us Filipinos?
They are produced in many different forms, but ultimately, have the same goal
Contraceptives are, by definition, is a drug or device serving to prevent pregnancy.
Contraceptives have been present in the Filipino community as early as 1995
It may surprise some, but the one of the reasons the RH bill took so much attention was because the audience it catered to was focused on the under aged.
Studies from the NSO show that there was actually a 'decrease' in contraceptive usage during the early 2000's.
But within the last 8 years, the growth of the Philippine population has reached a staggering increase, mostly from teenage parents.
In the last 5 years alone, the number of citizens incurring STD's have increased by 1/3. Most of the diseased youths.
Facts about contraceptives in the Philippines
According to NSO, from 2005-2009 there was an estimate of 12% increase in the use of contraceptives.
The Philippine population
Along with this "boom" of contraceptives came an alarming, and rather odd, increase in the population.
The RH Law
According to the WHO, the Philippines had a 2.8% increase in population from 2005-2008. The current population is lower by 1.6% of the population from 2008.
Most recorded pregnancies from 2008-2011 ranged from 13-28 year olds.
The RH law, or the "Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act of 2012 " aims to 'arm the poor' in terms of contraceptives to prevent an immediate population growth.
The law allows free choice among the use of contraceptives. The government also chooses the families that are given contraceptives by a regular NSO survey.
The RH law also defends (Article 15 - section 3 *Family*)
(a) The right of spouses to found a family in accordance with their religious convictions and the demands of responsible parenthood;
(b) The right of children to assistance, including proper care and nutrition, and special protection from all forms of neglect, abuse, cruelty, exploitation, and other conditions prejudicial to their development;
(c) The right of the family to a family living wage and income; and
(d) The right of families or family associations to participate in the planning and implementation of policies and programs
The State shall also promote openness to life; Provided, That parents bring forth to the world only those children whom they can raise in a truly humane way.
The RH law does not impose the use of contraceptives, but rather encourages its use to families who cannot provide for children.
Where does this place us now?
As of today, the use of contraceptives remains the same as that of 2008, where we buy condoms and pills at medical pharmacies and stores, yet the people who buy and use them get younger and younger.
Weeks after the bill was made into a law, a TRO was immediately placed upon it.
