The proposal to adopt the 2-child policy here in the Philippines is news. I am against it and just really glad that from what I know of the country, it cannot be implemented anyway.

Aside from fearing that it will give way to more of the horrible abandonment of infants and aborted fetuses, I am taking it personally as I mean to have as many kids as I want, that my husband and I can afford (not just financially) to bring up. And it cannot be lesser than 3 kids for me.

And of course, the machismo-ridden Senate hasn't thought of conducting vasectomy on say, 1/4 of the reproductive population to complement the 2-child policy and the things women are forced to go thru (from pill-taking to ligation).
