Bakit nga ba talaga masyado silang pursigido sa RH Bill na yan? Kahit nga naman wala yan e libre namang nabibili ang condom sa 7-11 at contraceptives sa botica, hindi naman illegal... Meron na ngang seminar parate bago magpakasal tungkol dyan... MAY KIKITA KAYA?
An excerpt from Mr Avila's column in Philstar
“Dear Bobit, I have always wondered why the RH Bill is being pushed through even though with or without it, the consumer is free to purchase contraceptives in the counter. So I made some analysis. Based on National Census Statistics Board data 2000, about 24 percent of the Philippine population is above 20 years old. Based on the same statistics, about 50 percent of that are females.
“Considering we have a total population of about 90 million that means the total population of Filipinos above 20 years old is about 22 million. Half of that would be 11 million females. This is the present target market for contraceptives. If I am not mistaken, based on what I have found out from the internet, the cost of using birth control pills is about P1,000 a month.
“The total potential value of the market in the Philippines is therefore computed to be: 11 million x P1,000 per month x 12 months or a total of P132 billion per year. The problem for the contraceptive manufacturers is that 90 percent of the market belongs to the lower income who cannot afford to spend P1,000 per month. So in order to give this market purchasing power, the RH Bill is now being pushed to enable the government to use taxpayer’s money to subsidize these contraceptives.
“To further expand the market, the 10 to 15 years old will be given sex education in school and they will be allowed to purchase contraceptives even without the consent of their parents. That could mean another 4,000,000 potential users. The value of this additional market is calculated to be another P48 billion. Adding the two markets gives us a whooping valuation of P180 billion per year. Now I understand why the RH Bill is being pushed very hard. God bless! - Bobby Tordesillas.”
YUNA! Gagamitin na pambili ang ibinabayad nating buwis para sa contaceptive nila??? Pambibili ng condoms ang ating buwis???? HALA!!!! Ipapasa para kumita ang mga manufacturer ng gamot mula sa buwis na ibinabayad natin???? Aba libre silang magbembangan pero hindi nila gagamitin ang buwis ko dahil hindi sila marunong magcontrol!!!!
