the case for the reproductive health bill – losyang pinays

the subtext behind this ad is violence against women.

women complain that when their husbands go home drunk, which is often, they normally want to have sex with them. and when their husbands are drunk, they are unable to control themselves to withdraw before orgasm that the risk of impregnating the woman is heightened.

they also will not dare refuse the husband. to refuse sex from a drunk husband invites being roughed up by the man. this gets them into a situation where even when the woman knows she is not safe that night, there is no way she can refuse a drunk husband to have sex with her.

many unwanted pregnancies have occurred because of this situation.

    This case is distortion of God’s notion that wives should submit to their husbands and couples need not to deprive each other.

    “Husbands, love your wives.” I don’t remember how much this passage is repeated in the Bible. Sex should be holy, with love, but sadly violence happens when men use the head below their waist.

    On a non biblical point of view, unwanted pregnancy can be prevented by the use of pills. The use of pills will enable women to decide when their bodies are ready for a child.

    The issue of this isn’t really the unwanted pregnancy but the irresponsibility of husbands towards their wives or fathers towards their families. Most RH bills talk about empowering women, but I personally insist we should focus more on the men. Our culture excuse men, saying that “it’s natural for men to drink alcohol or want sex, women need to be patient with them.” No, this is a lie, men are ought to use their strength to help women, not oppress them.

    There are no excuses for men not to be real men towards women.

    i agree. sex is not just a simple thing that a husband can request from his wife. sex must be considered sacred. besides, there is actually a law that can be sued to husbands who want sex without the permission of their wives.
