Alam ko ay ang responsibilidad ng estadong paglingkuran at protektahan ang sambayanan at mapalaya ang mamamayan nito sa kahirapan sa pamamagitan ng mga polisiya sa pagbibigay ng sapat na batayang serbisyong panlpunan, sapat na trabaho, mataas na batayan ng pamumuhay […]

In his annual National Day dinner speech to residents of Tanjong Pagar GRC and Tiong Bahru, Mr Lee kept his message on population simple: The country’s citizens […]
Warning signs continue to be ignored. Singaporeans need to marry and have children if they do not want the country to fold up, Mr Lee Kuan Yew warned on Saturday night. Read the rest here.
AGING PEOPLE: Not much is being said in the debate about the effects of eventually having an aging population. In its website last May 2, Ivy Funds called attention to low fertility rates raising a red flag in tiger nations. It said: “The world’s second and third largest economies, China and Japan, are managing a […]
From a personal level I believe in the freedom of choice and that choice belongs to the individual. We do not need a law for that. It is presumed in a free and democratic country. Even when the bill is passed it will not change. Educated women with means will continue to decide on such […]

From Carmen Pedrosa: Planned parenthood or population control? From a personal level I believe in the freedom of choice and that choice belongs to the individual. We do not need a law for that.

Female citizens of the country now give birth to about one child in their lifetime, a number that used to be much higher. (American women, by comparison, have about 2 […]
Enrile does what he does best, reveal the logic (or maybe we should call it “illogic”) of those who think population control = progress. “Are you suggesting (we) adopt … population control in the country?” asked Enrile, who attended a rally sponsored by the Catholic Church on Saturday in a show of clout—somehow dampened by […]
Passing the RH Bill would be killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. Already China and Thailand – still with relatively large populations – are suffering from labor shortages because of the rapid aging of their populations over the last decade or so.
