PostSubject: Philippines' birth control   Mon Sep 27, 2010 8:50 pm

The delegation of Philippines would like to inform its topic on birth control. Not only the Philippines but other countries also suffer this issue such as India that has its population growing constantly leading to other severe problems. Contraception is a life-saving investiment that should be made in order to reduce the high rate of unintended pragnancy that are impeding the development goals of the country. Investing in contraception will significantly bring advantages such as improvement of public health care or rise in annual family planning costs.

There is a big issue regarding this topic with religion. In Philippines 80% of the population is Catholic, so there are big influences in Catholic belief, which goes againt birth control. They already blocked a law once in 2008 that required the state to provide family planning to the ctizens. Today, it was decided that the government will provide contraceptive to poor couples, but still there is this big conflict with the Church.

Here are some sites you can get some feedback regarding this topic:

"The Philippines estimates its 2010 population at 94.01 million, up from 76.5 million in the 2000 census and making it the 12th most populous nation in the world." - http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20100927/hl_afp/philippinespopulationpoliticschurch_20100927053012

Birthcontrol is illigal in the philippines,
as is abortion;
so the Philippines grow crowded.
the population has doubled in the last 50 years, and it will double again in even less time.
the problem is not only the over-population, but also the possible spread of HIV
We think that this is a serious problem,
and we look forward to discuss this topic.

PostSubject: India's Population Control   Mon Sep 27, 2010 11:46 pm

As well as in the Phillipines, such as the delegate has already cited previously, India carries the issue of population control. According to information collected from research articles and newspapers, the population of India in March, 2010 stood at 1,027,015,247 people. With this, India became only the second country in the world after China to cross the one billion mark. The population of the country rose by 21.34% between 1991 - 2010. The sex ratio (number of females per thousand males) of population was 933, rising from 927 as at the 1991 Census; and in addition, the total literacy rate was returned as 65.38%. Therefore, India's population will beat China by 2025.

PostSubject: some background information    Wed Sep 29, 2010 3:38 pm

the philippines is a Roman Catholic country, where birthcontrol is illigal, as is abortion,
some women in the philippines are so desperate that they try to get a miscarriage by jumping down the stairs etc.
The population of the philippines is growing at an extreme rate, and there is nothing the women can do about it
some have 8 children, and no money to buy food, etc for them. some familly's have to survive with 50 cents per person, per day.
the country's population has doubled the last 50 years and it could possibly double in an even shorter time.
The country's population is growing at a rate of about 2.3% per year.
The rich people in the philippines can get birthcontrol by going to private hospitals, but this, for the normal inhabitants is impossible. the only advice women get is to purchase a thermometer, monitor their cycle, and abstain from sex on all but their least-fertile days. this ofcourse gives no safety. There are some herbal concoctions that are supposed to induce abortion, but these most of the time don't even show any affect.
The birthcontrol debbate doesn't even turn on economics, it most of all a religious issue.
Birthcontrol could easily help all of this problems out of the philippines.

The delegation of Japan is here to pronouce itself as in favor of this resolution. Unprotected sex can lead to unwanted offspring and worse of all diseases that can spread and cause public health issues on not only the Philippines but, as the nations today are worldwide, the whole world. It is a matter of extreme priority that a measure is taken to soften the impact caused by this problem, being the spread of contraception, the legalization of abortion, or a remarkable increase in the structuring of public health in the country of Philippines and neighboring nations. Again, Japan would like to encourage countries that are omiting themselves of the deal to vote in favor of not only this resolution, but the health of the human race.

The delegation of India look forward on discussing and coming with great solutions for this issue. India will play a big roll on this resolution, and would like to help the Phillipines coming with fast solutions.

You can count on India for help.

Yes delegates, its all about improving health and economic problems. Countries are being harshly affected with the spiralling increase in the population. This issue not only affects the citizens, but also the economy. Alleviation of poverty in the Philippines will remain weak unless the population growth is controlled. With one of the highest birth rate in the world, the Roman Catholic country is suffering with this issue in a time of high food prices. Due to this critical situation, lawmakers are trying to pass a bill that will make the central government promote artificial planning rather than only focusing on natural birth control methods supported by the Church.

"The lack of an unambiguous population policy reflects a lack of seriousness in promoting long-term economic growth and poverty reduction," said Ernesto Pernia, a professor of economics at the University of the Philippines, and one of the 27 signatories.

Considering the facts, this issue can be compared with Thailand. In 1975 both countries had similar population of about 41 to 42 million. Then, a major family planning effort was launched, therefore, now Thailand has a population of about 64 million and is the world's top exporter of rice, while the Phillipines with a population of 90 million is the world's importer of the grain. The annual income per capita of Thailand was of $7,880 in 2007, while in the Philippines it was $3,730.
"Our studies show that if the Philippines had followed the (population) growth trajectory of Thailand between 1975 and 2000 the per capita income would have been at least 22 percent higher and there would have been 5 million less poor people," said Pernia.

But with the Catholic Church taking this issue as an insult or violation of its religious beliefs, the Philippines will need to face turbulent problems in oder to combat birth rate control.

3.23 children born/woman
26.01 births/1,000 population
5.1 deaths/1,000 population
1.957% population growth rate
97,976,603 population,country comparison to the world: 12
These numbers speak for themselfs regarding the population growth.
This affects the economics to:
Economic growth in the Philippines has averaged 4.5% per year since 2001, when President MACAPAGAL-ARROYO took office. Despite this growth, poverty worsened during the term of MACAPAGAL-ARROYO, because of a high population growth rate and inequitable distribution of income. (CIA The World Factbook)
The unemployment rate is 7.5%, place 70 in comparision to the world. This might seem not so bad, but you have to recall that the averadge income of a poor family in the Philippines is 3,5 dollars a day. They are working, but this doesn't mean they have enough income to provide in the needs of their family.

Dear delegates,
The Israeli delegation is in favor of this resolution, since it would give many benefits for the world, and saving many lifes, that would be probably lost during childhood... The problem that the delegation of Philippines is trying to solve is an important issue, but it has to be in a way that it won't be agressive but at the same time effective!

Delegate of the Philippines,

The delegation of Cambodia fully supports your resolution since this is also an important issue in Cambodia. The birth rate is too high, making many women die and get some diseases. The contraceptives are the main key for controlling this issue, causing the women to suffer less and have fewer child complications.

If you have something to say about birth control feel free to say. In the meantime, please refrain from the war on drugs. The delegate can even create a new topic about this, but please delegate, as I said before, this is about BRITH CONTROL IN ASIA.

War on Drugs, has to do with birth control. The babies that we are trying to save are the ones that one day might will be influenced by the drugs. So lets stop the drugs for the kids. .

the delegates of mexico want the support of everyone, because we have proven to not be capable of handeling the war on drugs, against birth control which leads to a lot less murder, extorsion, fear, and the downfall of the mexican economy because of the negative impact the war has on the busnisses because they seem to shut down faster every day. we plead for the support all deligates to deploy the UN's peace corps into mexico to help them get control of their own country.

Is the delegate of Philippines aware that every country has its own issues and cultures? Its not that Cambodia is against birth control especially in Asia, where the countries are getting over-populated. But for example, China has its one child policy because it's home to billions, while in the other hand North Korean isn't that much populated.

What the delegate of Cambodia is saying is each country in Asia is different. Stereotyping birth control in Asia would be like making one resolution to solve all sanction in the world, but all the sanction were impose for distinct reasons.

Delegate of Cambodia,

I tottaly agree with what you just said, every single country has a different culture, different issues, but still would be a great idea to implant this program of birth control in the whole asia, but always keeping in mind the culture and local issues of the countries!

Dear delegates,

India resolutely agrees with the delegation of Cambodia, by the time it emmits the thought that "stereotyping birth control in Asia would be like making one resolution to solve all sanctions in the world", since all of the delegates present in this caucus are aware of each of their country's current situation, and not all of them are dealing with uncontrolled birth, that has been leading to nations' overpopulations as well, being included in this list countries such as India, China, and the Phillipines. However, the delegate must agree that what is being presented by the delegation of the Phillipines is the CONTROL of birth in Asian countries, not the EXTINCTION. Therefore, this resolution definetely applies to all countries that are part of this caucus, since prevention of overppopulation, which has been considered a global threat during the past few years, is something that is always welcomed to be adhered in nations, in case they look forward of the sustainable growth and development of their people.

Thank you for your attention!

Dear Delegation of Philippines,
The delagation of Australia would like to inform that our population rate has been of 12.4 out of 1000 and we have stayed that way for several years, showing that we have a steady birth rate for our country. However we fully support you topic of birth control in Philippines.
With Love,
