|The blasphemous "HR for RH" image|
On his blog, Dr. Quirino Sugon of Ateneo De Manila University exposes this campaign for what it is:
Catholics for Reproductive Health (C4RH) using Mary and the Holy Rosary in vain
“Mary, you are still young. A good life still awaits you. That child will prevent you from attaining that good life. You have a boyfriend, Joseph, an honest and just man. You are already betrothed to him. What will he say to you when he finds out that the child is not his? He will despise you and leave you. What will your parents and relatives say when they found you with child and Joseph divorced you, you will be despised by all. Worst, they will hand you over to be stoned to death, according to the law of Moses.And even if you and your child will escape death by stoning, you will have a hard life raising that child. A Son of God? That’s a ridiculous title? No one will believe that. Surely, you don’t believe that. A prophet maybe, but not Son of God. There is no precedence in history that God became man. You are just deluding yourself that you are talking to an angel. You fast too much that you began to see things that are not there. Slap yourself in the face. Maybe that would awake you to your senses.
Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.
Though it is true that sometimes it is lawful to tolerate a lesser moral evil in order to avoid a greater evil or in order to promote a greater good,” it is never lawful, even for the gravest reasons, to do evil that good may come of it (18)—in other words, to intend directly something which of its very nature contradicts the moral order, and which must therefore be judged unworthy of man, even though the intention is to protect or promote the welfare of an individual, of a family or of society in general. Consequently, it is a serious error to think that a whole married life of otherwise normal relations can justify sexual intercourse which is deliberately contraceptive and so intrinsically wrong.
