    Atty. Jo,

    I”m not a lawyer and I learned that you are into the fight against RH Bill and helping the Catholic Church. There are questions I would truly appreciate if you could enlighten me about.

    The RH Bill has not been passed yet. What law enabled the approval of the RH Bill budget into the DOH budget for 2012? Why can the President, the DOH and the Legislators do that?

    I understand that some local governments were able to give out free contraceptives, vasectomy and ligation because of funds from other countries or the UN. How can we push for a law that could block even the use of funds from other countries/UN from being used for these purposes?

    I know that even if they are able to implement RH Bill, nevertheless, it should not become a law. How can we assure then that they will be unable to do this even if they are able to implement RH 100%? What are we to do?

    Now that RH is in the budget for 2012, how can we block its implementation, both nationally and locally? What should we do?

    I hope that God give you the grace and time to respond. God bless you, Atty. Jo.

    With Jesus and Mary,
    Tet de Mata
