The ban on contraception has been lifted, which I thankfully and gratefully agree with, and sigh in relief

While there is still sin and immorality in the world the world will need contraception.

Until we see nation wide revival, babies will be born in Baseco and other Developing nations unwanted and unloved.

Aborted, abandoned, starving, neglected and abused.

We must build a FENCE……

Legislators in the Philippines have defied the powerful Roman Catholic Church to vote in favour of state-funded contraception.

Both the Senate and the House of Representatives backed a bill that has been debated for 13 years.

Supporters say it is a vital human rights measure in the impoverished country with one of the highest mortality rates in the region. Source http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-20752851

This is  a battle that has raged for years in the Phillipines…….but for people who see first hand the damage multiple uncontrolled and unsupported birth has, this step is the first in a positive direction.

According to the government’s 2011 Family Health Survey, the maternal mortality rate rose 36 percent to 221 deaths per 100,000 live births between 2006 and 2010.

Many of those giving birth were girls between 15 and 19 years old, she said, and most were from poor families.

I thank God for this development, really I do.

I believe the tide of Abortion, unwanted and unplanned pregnancies will  begin to stop.

Thank God he has given us this tool to use in the meantime!
