Entertainer-turned-politician Senator Tito Sotto went emotional saying he is against the Reproductive Health Bill. For this publicity, he is a precious gem to Congressman Mitos Magsaysay.

Sotto noted that his fight against the controversial RH Bill is personal. Personal it is, for a public man whose mission is to put public interest first before his own personal stuff.

The politician revealed that he and his wife Helen Gamboa lost a child. He believes they lost the offspring because his wife used birth control pills.

Aling Dionisia, mother of boxing icon and known RH Bill-hater Manny Pacquaio, might come out to mention that her daughter-in-law Jinky and Helen have similarities.


“Helen got pregnant again even while taking pills,” recalled the politician. He recalled that the unfortunate child was born with a weak heart. This year is the child’s 37th death anniversary.

That event happened 37 years ago. No findings can say that the child was killed by the pills his wife took. But he believed it was the contraceptive to blame, so his mission now is to stop the foolish RH Bill.

His emotional speech gained hatred from the public. He showed no strong basis to say that his being an anti-RH Bill is worth it. His claims are not sufficient to say that the pill was the killer. He did not mention if her wife really followed all the directions recommended by their doctor. It was plain and simple: the birth control pill was the villain, no more questions please.

Sotto is playing the role of an immature Filipino politician. He based his judgement on unsubstantial evidences. He daughter came to her senses to defend her father from Twitter bashers and critics.

Sotto’s move did not forward his political career. He gained more haters than followers. He spoke of something that is empty just to give his opinion about a serious issue. He should have cited a better story that will surely give the Filipino people how evil contraceptives are.

The politician wasted his precious time. He wasted the time of Filipinos. He just advertised how we Filipinos believe in unproven, unrealistic and unbelievable things. Time to grow up!
