Said provision of the constitution expressly provides that the Church cannot infringe on the affairs of the State. In the same manner, the State cannot infringe on the affairs of the Church. This is plain and simple.
The church is apparently meddling with State affairs as regards the Reproductive Health Bill. The argument that “it will result in abortion” is narrow-minded. Abortion is the “termination of a pregnancy by the removal or expulsion of a fetus or embryo from the uterus, resulting in or caused by its death” (Gynaecology for Lawyers by Trevor Dutt).
With the use of contraceptives, there is no pregnancy to talk about. Hence, there is no abortion.
It is NOT PRO-LIFE and NEVER WILL IT BE PRO-LIFE to see your children hungry, without shelter and education, decent clothes, and other necessities of life. It is NOT PRO-LIFE to see your children suffer from extreme poverty. And, it is NOT PRO LIFE to see your children beg for everything and anything. LIFE, after all, NEEDS TO BE LIVED WITH DIGNITY.
I personally support the RH Bill because I am PRO-CHOICE.
