CBCP to P. Noy: Abandon ‘contraceptive mentality’

MANILA, Philippines – The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) wants President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III to abandon the “contraceptive mentality” as a response to fighting poverty.
In a statement made after the CBCP’s 101st Plenary Assembly, CBCP President and Tandag Bishop Nereo P. Ondimar said “poverty cannot be solved by promoting contraceptive education and programs. Education does not merely deal with knowledge and skills; rather it must promote values that are inherent to us as Filipinos.”
He added “parents have the primary right to educate their children and sex education is properly to be done in the family.”
CBCP has always been vocal about its opposition to the use of contraceptives and the implementation of the sex education program.
This time, the CBCP is pinning its hopes on the new administration.
“With the new government, we, Bishops, join the Filipino people in the hope that there will be changes that will truly bring good governance to the country,” Ondimar said.
The 2-day plenary assembly was attended by around 90 archbishops and bishops.
Among those who attended the plenary assembly were Archbishops Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales of Manila, Ricardo Cardinal Vidal of Cebu, Orlando Quevedo of Cotabato and Fernando Capalla of Davao.
