Petition: We Stand for Filipino Morality (Re: My Husband’s Lover)

myhusbandslover

The good folks over at Sisters and Mums for Life have requested that we sponsor this petition for them.

We are publishing their petition in its entirety, as seen below. We also would like to express our official position as Filipinos for Life that we are against any and all shows that promote immorality, not just that as specifically portrayed in the show My Husband’s Lover. We need to continue asking our TV and movie producers to come up with shows and films that inspire us to better ourselves, our families, and our communities. And of course, we believe that ultimately it is our PERSONAL responsibility to keep ourselves on the straight and narrow, to impart morality to our children not just by words but by our own example, and if need be, to turn off the television set when the shows available to us are not reflective of the values and virtues we wish our children to embrace.

Addendum: The decision to host the petition here was also prompted by the My Husband’s Lover’s Facebook page blocking/deleting posts and comments from concerned viewers.


As defenders of faith, and family, the undersigned are compelled and strongly object to the decision of GMA Studios to produce and broadcast “My Husband’s Lover”, a television show that promotes homosexuality. We are also deeply disappointed with the sponsors of this show for supporting homosexual behavior. This show is being aired during primetime on weekdays at GMA 7.

The show:

1. Attempts to glamorize and normalize homosexuality.
2. Assumes the immoral premise that homosexual men are equal to women as a mate, suggesting that they are “worthy” rivals of women.
3. The premise is a debasement of women, and of true marriage.
4. Insults the dignity of marriage by showing the main character as someone who is “crazily in love” with a homosexual, and willing to sacrifice his time and family relations for homosexuals (feeding a false “gay” fantasy which further causes psychological and emotional damage to homosexuals).
5. Disrespects the sanctity of marriage by mocking the wedding ring as something that isn’t “magic” that will banish attraction and affection to people of the same sex, and implying that a valid and true marriage should not stop someone from pursuing same-sex attraction.
6. Portrays straight marriages as typically having dysfunctional family relations.
7. Demeans straight men by:
a. Depicting them as violent “homophobics”, a reflexive attack on people who oppose the immorality of homosexual behavior.
b. Misrepresenting straight men as boorish, in contrast to the homosexual character who is “well-mannered” and “meek”.
8. Advises homosexuals or men who have homosexual leanings to come out and be “true to themselves”, that being a “closet gay” or holding back your homosexual feelings is not good. In effect, instead of opposing this immoral and unhealthy behavior, the show encourages the viewer to maintain the inclination and continue with the damaging lifestyle.
9. Proposes the blasphemy that it is God’s will to have homosexual relations; that somehow the leading homosexual characters were “destined by God” to have a relationship.
10. Attempts to “condemn” adultery but not homosexuality. The husband character is allegedly in a dilemma because he is married already and should be committed to his wife only.
11. Encourages the homosexual lifestyle: An actual gay bar show is presented, with men flirting with each other and with barely covered boys gyrating on stage while the husband character is watching, and liking what he sees.

GMA 7 claims to narrate real-life situations with “utmost prudence and in good taste”, but it fails to acknowledge and convey the reality that homosexual behavior is immoral and unhealthy, and instead glorifies the same by portraying homosexuals as “victims” and somewhat “courageous and heroic”. The real courageous homosexuals are the ones struggling and fighting this!

Therefore it is prejudiced and obviously promoting the homosexual agenda. It is clearly a moral insult to those who are Catholics, other Christians, other people of faith and many people of good will.

For these reasons, we are resolved to demand that the producers along with GMA 7 immediately cease production and airing of “My Husband’s Lover”.

Until this has occurred, we will take the following steps:
– We will not watch ” My Husband’s Lover ” on television.
– We will not watch content / shows / programs produced by The Beki Chronicles.
– We will boycott sponsors who advertise during “My Husband’s Lover”.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and for protecting the core values which serve the common good, such as the sanctity of the family, the human person, and life itself, and for responding to a large and faithful segment of the Philippine population.

Comments: 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their
unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the
world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as
God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise,
they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and
creeping things.
24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25
because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed
forever! Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are
contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another,
men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29
They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit,
maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,
31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to
die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. -Romans 1:18-32

good values to children. Exposing them to these kind of shows will create a generation of culture of selfishness, lust, cheating,
infidelity and death mentality . A generation without God will fall. Other countries trying to correct the mistakes they had done. We
Filipinos are lucky to see the outcome of culture of death so why we should embrace that culture. Gising Pinoy!

draw the line on issues which distort and undermine Filipino family values. To support and glorify infidelity and the gay lifestyle is a
network choice that reflects poorly on the station and management giving a tarnished reputation of a morally corrupt and ratings
hungry organization.

wrong having a lover whose homosexual… kahit pa sabihing parental guidance ang teleseryeng yan, still GMA is liable to everyone
in demoralizing our culture. sana magkaroon ng konsensiya ang mga tao behind this teleserye. hindi sila nakakabuti at lalong higit

of ratings but instead recognize your role in the shaping of the moral fibre of the Filipino people and be true to your "serbisyong
totoo", where Truth supreme is a Person, i.e. Jesus Christ. Be an instrument then to preserve the sanctity of marriage and
strengthen family unity which can spell a strong nation founded on the solid values of our Christian faith.

Comments: The Christian specially the Catholic morality is the only morality today that withstood the test of time and is proven right
century after centuries. We stand not only in faith but we stand also by faith. We are Catholics. The TV show should not have been
aired in the first place but I hope that the petitioners should also watch how bad or even worst the other channel specially Maalala
Mo Kaya. Another reason why one should not watch TV anymore

"querida" in the teleseryes. I must say we denounce "Both." We acknowledge that both cases are immoral
and anti-marriage and anti-family. This TV show further tries to foster a behavior and value-change that is not even natural and not
according to the flow of life. We must help homosexuals overcome their difficulties. My Husband’s Lover does not in any way help
them.

relationships as represented in the show. I totally respect gays because I know they have dignity as persons. In fact, I know for a fact
that there are effeminate guys too. However, we should not say that homosexual acts are right and we should not promote them.

372. Name: Anonymous on Jul 22, 2013
Comments: This telenovela comes too close to home. A similar story happened to a friend of mine 15 years ago. Her husband
broke the news to her while they were in his car and his lover happened to be in the back seat. Not only is this show an insult to my
friend, but to gay people as well.
Though this petition focuses on the misrepresentation of straight men, I think that the show also misrepresents gay men as well.
This show promotes the breaking of the family unit in the name of love. We are supposed to love gay people, but this show
degrades them all the more. This is because the show depicts gay people as individuals whom everyone should shun, because they
also have the capability of breaking families and luring straight men into homosexuality. Moreover, the show promotes that these
gay individuals have no respect for other people’s lives. I think gay people deserve more than that false depiction. I have successful
gay friends who respect life, the family unit and the Christian beliefs of other people. The only reason why they continue to remain
my friends is because they RESPECT the fact that I firmly stand with my beliefs regarding homosexuality.
My stance on homosexuality is the Biblical stance. This show does not help teach/show Christians how to deal with homosexuality
through God’s love and guidance. I strongly disagree with what the director, Dominic Zapata says about the show’s main theme
(love). It is not love when it destroys and and emotionally damages individuals. The show promotes selfishness and lack of
responsibility. It is not beautiful when lives are destroyed or when you hurt other people in the process.
The values depicted in this show is something that our youth shouldn’t be exposed to. It is a vehicle of false teachings. It’s just so
sad that this is another show that parents should watch out for, lest their children be exposed to it – and another reason why
Philippine television shows should be just avoided altogether.

architecture as human beings has remained the same, we do not turn out "new models" every generation, there is a
marked need to conserve the good for the young and future generations. Media should use their unique position to influence towards
strong moral values, not towards uncommon lack of good.

Let’s Hear It Again for Humanae Vitae

All other things being equal, it doesn’t take much grey matter to realize that convenient, widespread access to contraception has made it easier to commit adultery.

…and a general lowering of moral standards. Not much experience is needed to be fully aware of human weakness and to understand that human beings—and especially the young, who are so exposed to temptation—need incentives to keep the moral law, and it is an evil thing to make it easy for them to break that law.”

Contraceptive Culture Vis a Vis Other Issues Related to RH Bill

by Hans Marasigan, I Oppose the RH Bill Facebook page member.

This controversial bill has been a subject of many debates for almost a year. It created several instances of fraction in different religious or secular sectors of our society. Some would even end mocking each other, using offensive alias as their counter argument or protest to those parties that have an opposing views from them, and sad to say, these do not excuse Catholic Christians. At some point, both opposing parties have been showing creativity to assert their dispute in a convincing manner, even to the point of spreading lies and controversy that might affect the reputation of the other. This kind of tactic is very common in Philippine political set up, to gain support one has to destroy the credibility of the opposing party, which is not the proper way of discussing things as delicate as this propose bill. Despite some differences on view regarding the said issue, one has to act in norms of civility.

I will divide my writings into two parts, the legality and morality issues concerning the bill. The controversial bill raised many good points on how to answer and give solutions to some of the current issues that our country is facing, especially maternal and clinical services for poor mothers and access to education. However, there are provisions in the bill that are questionable and subjected to further revisions. After listening to some of the arguments presented by the proponents of the bill, I was able to distinguish some of the important points often times exploited against the Catholic Church that needs clarification.

The Issue on legality of the bill

One of the most commonly mistaken used arguments from the advocates is this, we are proposing the Rh bill and seeking for its approval, because we want to give each couples different options and access to family planning, and give them the freedom to choose what they think is helpful for them in establishing their desired number of siblings, according to the personal dictate of their conscience, and not coerce by any institutions or religious sectors. I had a chance to conversed with my former college professor, whom I revered most. Our conversation took seriously and became an exchange of ideas until I asked him about his stand on the said bill. He gave me a different perspective on the issue that I never heard before to any law makers, whether pro or anti, not even to the bishops of the Catholic Church. He said, the contents of the Rh Bill is a question of conscience, one cannot legislate or enact any law which is directly related to conscience. It should be on the discretion of each couples, so they should pass it as a policy not a law. The moment the bill enacted as a law it becomes mandatory for each couples to follow some of the provisions of the bill, and its no longer according to the dictate of their conscience or any other institutions, except the government. Base on their arguments given above it’s more appropriate to consider it as a policy, since they are talking about personal predilection. There should be a clear distinction between law and policy, which the politicians and even the president himself, failed to explain properly, whether they done it deliberately or not.

The issues on morality of the bill

The topic on morality regarding the bill will not dwells so much about abortion or some contraceptives that are abortifacients in nature, or over population as one of the main causes of poverty in the country. Since those aspects are already answered many times by those groups advocating pro life and anti corruption movements, so it’s quite superfluous to include it all over again. Instead, it will just answer and clarify issues related to Catholic stand on morality and natural family planning as one of the main issues on Rh Bill, contrary to its teachings, which often times criticize because of lack of understanding or false notion from its critics. Another aspect that is commonly misinterpreted by the advocates of the said bill is, according to them the Catholic Church does not understand that using contraceptives do not constitute abortion, therefore it’s not immoral, why? According to their argument, the term itself “contraceptive” as the literal translation emphasizes, which means, “against conception or no conception” they further explain that the whole process block the sperm cells from men’s genetalia, in order to prevent the possible meeting with the egg cells into the fallopian tube of the women that might result to the transportation of the combine sperm and eggs into the ovary and uterus, that eventually might cause fertilization. The artificial means applied on both male and female, although the example and explanation that the author used is the masculine method of contraception. For them since the sperm and egg cells did not meet, no fertilization happened, therefore, no abortion.

From that perspective the pro Rh bill is correct and the church recognizes that argument from them, but what makes it objectionable is the fact that they ignored the holistic and responsible mentality in dealing with sexuality, in other perspective the church is against contraception not because it constitutes abortion, as what they are wrongly accused of by the advocates of the bill, but rather it promotes a culture that breaks the totality of human sexuality. Base on their contention they are trying to eradicate some of the important aspects of it and focus only in sexual act as a mere object of pleasure.

In Catholic moral theology, human sexuality is one of the most discussed subject matters since its part of human nature and creation, and it has the broadest sense of meaning and expressions. Lengthy of discourses were written since the time of the Church fathers until the present magisterium of the modern popes, the Catholic Church teachings on sexuality is rooted from three major sources; the natural law, sacred scriptures, and sacred traditions.

Human sexuality is sacred in nature and permissible for couples inside the bond of marriage, this is an act from where the partners can elevate their expressions of love in a human form activity, joining them as one with mutual and total self giving. Human sexual act has two major purposes; pro creative and unitive. Contraception as a preventive measure breaks the two fundamental elements of sexual act, first, refusal to the possibility of new life. Secondly, the unitive, because the couples deprived its purpose of giving oneself totally to each other, a conjugal expression of love and respect to the women’s body. The use of contraception degrades the dignity and personification of women to a mere object of pleasure, a commodity.

The church does not deny or set aside the reality that sex is a gift from God to married couples, and the benefit of pleasure in engaging into sexual act is part of it. That’s why the church supports natural family planning method for those couples who want to enjoy the benefit of sex without producing new life. In church teaching, God sets a natural infertility cycle or a rhythm to the women’s body so that a couple inside the bond of marriage can perform sexual act, without a chance of getting pregnant. (In layman’s term state of infertility) The only thing that the male partners should have to consider is the awareness of the menstrual cycle of their wives, and to make sure that they are in the state of infertility before performing the sexual act.

The pro Rh bill would argue that it do not apply to every women in general, since there are females that has irregularity in menstrual cycle and the chance of getting pregnant is highly possible when the couple engages in sexual act, since they cannot predict the exact infertility state. So if that’s the case, even married couples will deprived themselves with the benefit of having sex, if the women partners have menstrual irregularities and afraid to produce new life. Since the Catholic Church only recognizes natural family planning as morally acceptable. To some extent, their argument is valid. However, they disregarded the fact that it’s a natural disorder or deliberately cause by unhealthy lifestyle, on that case the element of gratification as a sole purpose for sexual activity will be removed due to its given condition to be morally accepted. The call for the virtue of abstinence or sexual discipline is the church given answer. Which of course, not acceptable for some.

I even heard some pastors of other religions favoring the bill would argue, that the pro creative aspect in sexual act is not always applicable and fundamental, since when the women reach the stage of menopausal period the procreative aspect is no longer part of the holistic and responsible sexuality that the Catholic Church is promoting. Again, they are correct in the earlier part of their argument, but the latter is questionable, why? Yes, the procreative aspect would cease when the women reach a certain age of menopausal period, but it should take into consideration that it stops as part of the natural cycle of their body, part of the natural rhythm in women’s different bodily stages of growth and decay set by God in nature, and it does not cease because it’s intentionally interfered or prevented by any artificial means, contrary to the bill that they are proposing, and that’s a different thing.

Human beings by nature are created rational, because of that rationality every actions that an individuals intended to perform are subjected to responsibility. That is far different from animals performing sexual act as a mere instinct, there should be a corresponding discipline and maturity in dealing with it. And that’s the essential aspect lacking in the propose bill.

PROMOTING CONTRACEPTIVE CULTURE

After giving those explanations regarding the moral teachings of the Catholic Church, even how convincing they are or not for some. Still, there are other sectors in society, like the relativist and liberal movements that would refused to accept those doctrines. The call in this advocacy is no longer a question of belief system, but rather cultural in nature. Advocates of the bill are promoting a culture of modernity, their dispute is that, Philippines remain a poor country because many of its citizens are still enslave by medieval thoughts and teachings of the church, and it is an impediment for progress. The point here is that, change in culture affects not only the mentality of the people, but it also degrades morality. A nation can advance in modernity in many ways by not sacrificing the moral norms of the people.

The contraceptive culture that they are promoting will only worsen the cases of unwanted pregnancies among teenagers, and more cases of pre marital and extramarital sex will happen. Why? Because contraceptive culture is a form of behavioral fixation towards sex, it is establishing a more confident and riskier attitude in exploring sex to different partners. Psychological studies showed that, once an individual starts having sex, it would be difficult for them to do abstinence, higher chances of getting engage into future sexual act whether it be with the same partner or exploring it to others is much possible, compare to the individuals who never been involve to any sexual activities, especially teens. Even if people are to educate to be responsible users of contraceptives, or even if advocates keep arguing that it will only be promoted to married couples and to the extent of educating the young people. Still, contraceptive culture promotes a potential phenomenon of risk compensation or behavioral disinhibition towards sex, as some psychologist would describe it, and most likely, subjected to many forms of human abuses.

I was able to read a research conducted by Dr. Edward C. Green, an American medical anthropologist, and also a research scientist at Harvard School of Public Health regarding the promotion of the use of condoms, he would argue, “if somebody is using a certain technology to reduce risk, a phenomenon actually occurs where people are willing to take on greater risk”.

Response to Mulat Pinoy Post Entitled “RH: Through the Eyes of the Youth”

in response to RH: Through the Eyes of the Youth

First and foremost, I would like to share my views on the quote “Ang reproductive health ay tungkol sa karapatan ng bawat isa” I would like to believe that, because I also am in a quest that all of us, young or old, fat or thin, big or small, girl or boy, share the same rights. It does sound really pleasing to hear, that reproductive health is about the rights of everyone. However, if you think about it critically, is reproductive health really the only right that we fight for? “Reproductive Health is a license given to married couples. A right is something that we must inherently have by the mere fact that we are human”, said a friend of mine. I am not against reproductive health, but I am against the taking away of other rights as a consequence of achieving that right which is only given within the context of marriage. What about the rights of the unborn child? What about the right of women to give birth? Should the RH bill be passed, reproductive health (which in fact is a license) will take away other important rights.

The youth is a major stakeholder of this RH bill. I very much agree. Issues are overwhelming when it comes to teenage unplanned pregnancy, rape, STDs, maternal deaths and so on and so forth. I agree that this should be addressed. However, RH bill is not the way to solve it. In fact it will worsen it. One can never let go of the anti-life mentality that is instilled in the RH bill. When contraceptives are being promoted, it will give an idea that it is ok to have sex with anyone, anytime, anywhere, as long as you are “safe and protected”. Moreover, it is a big misconception that contraceptives are safe because the medical field can state countless side effects of these contraceptives, and some are even abortifacient. If it prevents fertilization, it still has an abortifacient effect on the minds of the people because pregnancy now becomes unwanted. Should the contraceptive device or method failed, and a fetus is formed, it does not take away the fact that it is still unwanted, and this lead people to consider abortion. People say that by using contraceptives, one become responsible because you avoid pregnancy. Is this really responsibility? NO. Responsibility is taking the consequences of your actions. Sex, in its design should be for the unity of the couple (man and woman) and open to life. What happened to openness to life? If the problem happens to be rape and teenage pregnancy, then the most logical remedy would be to focus on values education, and to conduct parenting seminars so that the parents will be better equipped on raising their children on this very sensitive and important topic in which a lot are uncomfortable to talk about. Strengthen the values that these may be avoided, not provide an excuse that will justify something wrong. On the issue of healthcare and maternal deaths, the way to eliminate or lessen it is to fund health workers, improve medical facilities, be able to get regular prenatal check-up. This is where the money should go.

On sexuality education, it should not be done in a school setting. It is the duty of the parents and not the teachers to instruct the students about sex, as it is a very sensitive topic, and must only be explained to them when they are ready. Pro-RH bill advocates say it is age-appropriate sex education. How would one qualify age-appropriate? Each of us matures at different paces. Some may be able to deal with the topic of sex when he/she is 12 years old, while others may be ready at 14. It is very important that it is the parents who do the sex education because it is them who know their child best, and it is important that sex won’t be something malicious for them. In a large class, a teacher might not even know the student in a personal level, and may just go on and teach the curriculum. Do they care if the child is ready or not? I don’t think so. Besides, how would the teacher know if the student is ready to comprehend a topic that is very sensitive? It has been stated that it is not something easy to talk about, and that parents are shy, or they are not sure when the best time is to teach the child about sex. The solution, which the RH bill suggests, is a comprehensive age-appropriate sex education in a school setting. It is not only 1 subject, but what is scarier is that it will be integrated to Mathematics, English, and other subjects. Even if students are allowed to be pulled out by their parents who do not wish to take part of the sex-education part, it is not a feasible remedy. Students who are pulled out will miss out on skills, and his/her classmates will end up just talking to the student about what he/she missed, and now the source of information on sex will be based on the information and understanding of the classmate, which most likely spark wrong curiosity and malice. Instead of focusing on sex education, why not fund for better classrooms, better resources, and higher salary for teachers so that their proficiency in Math, Science, English, Filipino and other subjects may improve. Again, I am for sex-education, but this must be done at home, and only by the parents.

I do agree that all must be treated equally regardless of sexual orientation, but I believe that the RH bill will not be a solution to this. There can be a separate law that can answer to violence against LGBT, but this bill will only encourage more, who may be confused of their sexual orientation to be brave and live out what think they are. Attraction is a part of being human, so attraction to the same sex is not wrong, but it is an issue that should be addressed. We should be able to help them and guide them back, not make fun of them, disrespect them and be scared of them. They are part of the community, and there should not be any discrimination, but what the RH bill can do is in fact to give them encouragement. If it remains at a level of attraction, it is okay, but if sexual actions come in, it is a big risk. Studies show that most cases of HIV in our country is from sexual activities of people of the same sex.

Next I would want to comment on being marginalized. It is true that this is an issue that we want to solve. We want even the poorest of the poor to have all their rights. It is good to exercise freedom and have power to make informed choices. I have nothing against that, but this becomes a risk when and if the RH bill will be made into a law. Choices are good, but who does this information come from? Who is this someone who will inform the person? The government? The Church? The family? This is one question that is very important to answer. I do not believe that people really lack choices. It is precisely the lack of the foundation of values that mistakes are made. There is already informed choice even without the RH bill; it’s just that people are not strong enough to accept what is right. As a result, they find other ways in order to be able to do what they want, even if they know it is wrong.

The solution to the country’s problem is proper allocation of funds and the strengthening of the values we have. We are a nation that is pro-life, pro-family, and pro-God. We must be strong in these values at all cost. Though people don’t like the idea of using God too much in the arguments, one can never take away the concept of morality. Every law made should be for the common good. We must at all cost protect and uphold the family, as this is the basic unit of society. As a youth, a concerned citizen and as someone who loves our country dearly, I know that the RH bill will only make our country’s problems worse. Let us not sacrifice morality for money. Let us working on reviving the Filipino values, protecting the family and valuing life, and I believe that we are on a continuous uphill climb to progress in our beloved country.

MORAL na Kamalayan

Ang isinusulong namin sa grupong ito, at sa maraming pro-life groups, ay ang mga kabutihang-asal – tulad ng pagiging TAPAT ng mag-asawa, chastity education, pagtitimpi, pagsasakripisyo, atbp.– sapagka’t ito ang pangmatagalang solusyon sa tinatawag na “unwanted pregnancies” na laging bukang-bibig ng mga pro-R.H.Bill.

Nakasaad sa isang artikulo ng Philippine Population Review:

“…women who had unintended pregnancies or births were older, not living together with a partner, had no previous birth or had a closely-spaced birth interval, had both sons and daughters, rural residents, not well educated and poor. Moreover, these women were ever-users of contraceptives, had three or more living children and whose ideal number of children was lesser than what they actually had.”

Pagmasdan ang mga kataingan ng mga may “unintended pregnancies” – gumagamit ng kontraseptibo, wala sa nararapat na kalagayan ng nakikipagtalik –may lehitimong asawa at TAPAT sa asawa at sa asawa lamang kikilos ng ganito… [Sa mga single, ang chastity ay pag-iwas sa anumang aktibidad sekswal.]

Sa mga kababaihang sa kasawiang palad ay nasa ganitong sitwasyon (“unwanted pregnancies”), imumungkahi namin sa kanila ang Pregnancy Support Centers o Maternity Homes, na magpapayo na iluwal sa mundo ang sanggol at arugaan ito o di kaya’y ipa-adopt ito (pero hinding-hindi imumungkahing magpalaglag dahil ito’y karumaldumal na krimen!).

May mga Maternity Homes sa Pilipinas na pro-life, katulad ng:

Bilang pangmatagalang solusyon, aming isinusulong ang KALINISAN SA BUHAY at ABSTINENCE EDUCATION na napatunayan nang mabisa ayon sa mga pananaliksik:
