The Catholic Church said that the safest and the righteous way to control birth is the natural way? The natural way, for those of you who doesn’t know it, is by means of rhythm method meaning you have to plan your sexual intercourse when a woman is not fertile. According to the people who practice this, a woman is ok to do it 4 days before and 4 days after her menstruation, but this is not always accurate. Like me for example, I have an abnormal menstrual cycle so if ever I plan to be a sex machine any time soon, I’d probably end up being a mother to 10 kids because I really don’t know when the hell are my “safe days” or if I even have any. They also said that giving away condom for free in health centers and in schools invites young people to indulge in early premarital sex. Hmmm, isn’t it that Snow White was only 16 when she married Prince Charming? That is a fact. And to think that Snow White is well loved by little girls…better look in to that, Church people!
We don’t have to prove that our country, the Philippines, believes in the teachings of God, or that we are the only Catholic country in Asia because we have proven this a long time ago in so many different events. In the near future, there will be 700 million Filipinos in a country that is consists of only have 7,100 islands… I don’t even want to imagine it. The role of the church is to guide us and not control us. God is very intelligent, let us not forget that. He gave us the freedom to decide on our own so we must use it improve our lives for good.
