Statements Presented:

On Population and Economic Development

Birth rates in different countries have declined not because of birth control but due to changes in attitudes, education, urbanization and economic development, a desire for a better way of life, and the tendency to marry late and have fewer children. Many developed countries are concerned that their population is now shrinking and are incentivizing young couples to start families and have more children. Countries with huge populations, like India and China, have grown in economic development and Research The HB&A-ARO

On Population and Economic Development
The Philippines has 90+ million people and because of our human resource talent, over 10 million are employed overseas. Because of OFW remittances, the country has been spared of the current recession that has hit many developed countries.

Features of the RH Bill
Statements Presented: The Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI has expressed the Catholic Church position, stating grave concern that the RH Bill may be passed. The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) expressed the same concern. The concern has to do with the resultant immoral society whose people will no longer follow Church teachings, which would result when the contraceptive mentality takes root in a country, leading to high abortion rates, high divorce rates, and increase in the number of teenage and out-ofwedlock pregnancies.
