    Funny, I was thinking the same thing.

    not really, a separate article lambasted someone from UST for being pro-RH

    When the Varsitarian released its fourth issue bannering the headline “Kontrasepsiyon ay Korupsiyon,” it drew the ire of many, especially those from UST (students and alumni alike).

    One Thomasian Facebook user even commented on the Varsitarian’s front page photo online, saying “another biased article from the Varsitarian. Puro literary at opinion lang. Thomasians for RH!” His profile cover photo shows him smirking at UST’s pro-life poster and blatantly mocking it with a caption: “How come there wasn’t any survey conducted to get the side of the Thomasian Community?”

    No such thing.

    A parent of mine is a faculty member of the Ateneo and whose signature is among the 190 pro RH faculty members. That parent has not been sanctioned nor threatened with termination by the the school's administration for taking a pro RH stance.

    Lets just cut the bovine odeure shall we.

    I concur with this. My sister and some personal friends of mine are also signatories to the Pro RH stance and they are neither being intimidated nor told to shut up from what I know and see.

    Responsableng pagpiglas sa malayang pamamahayag

    Paano nga ba masasabing sobra na ang isang bagay? Paano masusukat kung lagpas na sa kanyang limitasyon ang ginagawa o sinasabi ng isang organisasyon? Ano nga ba ang hangganan ng kalayaan ng bawat isa sa pagpapahayag ng opinyon? Ilan lamang ito sa mga katanungang kailangang bigyang-linaw upang mapatunayang isang baluktot na pangangatwiran lamang ang lahat ng paratang na ipinahayag ng The Varsitarian, opisyal na publikasyon ng University of Santo Tomas, sa inilabas nitong editoryal kamakailan lamang.

    Kung tutuusin, napakaraming argumento tungkol sa paniniwala ng mga pakultad ng Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) at Pamantasang De La Salle (DLSU) ukol sa usapin ng Reproductive Health Bill ang inilahad ng nasabing pahayagan. Gayunpaman, bilang isang pahayagang may kakayahan at kapangyarihang maging boses ng isang pamantasan, hindi maikakailang nagkulang sila sa dalawang mahalagang aspektong kailangang isinasaalang-alang sa simula pa lamang. Una, tila nakalimutan ng The Varsitarian ang tunay na diwa ng pagkakaroon ng isang editoryal. Ikalawa, sa halip na direktang talakayin ang usapin ng RH Bill, tanging pangungutya lamang at pagbubuhat ng sariling bangko ang kanilang inihain sa madla.

    Sa puntong ito, naniniwala ang Ang Pahayagang Plaridel (APP) na higit sa isyu ng kontrasepsyon o kung ano pa man, mas mahalagang talakayin kung bakit hindi makatwiran ang paglalathala ng isang artikulong direktang umaatake sa reputasyon hindi lamang ng ADMU at DLSU, ngunit maging sa mga pakultad na bumubuo rito.

    Maituturing ang editoryal bilang kaluluwa ng isang pahayagan. Isa ito sa mga pinaka-esensyal na bahagi ng dyaryo sapagkat tiyak na naipamamalas nito ang kanyang pagkakakilanlan. Sa pamamagitan ng editoryal, makikilatis ng mga mambabasa ang mga pinaninindigan ng pahayagan ukol sa mga balitang nakalimbag sa bawat pahina nito. Sa inilabas na editoryal ng The Varsitarian, tahasan itong nagpahayag ng mga batikos at pasaring laban sa mga pakultad ng ADMU at DLSU. Kung susuriin ang mga argumentong nakapaloob sa artikulo, masasabing wala itong matibay na pinanggagalingan maliban sa pansariling opinyon ng mga nagsulat nito.

    Sa katunayan, tila isang boses lamang ang nanaig dito sapagkat hindi man lang nabigyan ng sapat na paliwanag ang kabilang panig upang masabing tama at makatwiran ang kanilang ipinaglalaban. Walang puwang sa anumang pahayagan ang isang editoryal na pawang ideya o kaisipan lamang ng iilan ang namamayani. Ano pang silbi ng isang editoryal kung wala man lang ni isang konstruktibong argumentong nakapaloob dito? Ano pang silbi ng isang editoryal kung hindi man lamang nito nabigyang-hustisya ang paksang nais nitong talakayin? Paano mo masasabing balanse at patas ang pagpapaliwanag sa isang usapin kung tahasan ang pagkiling nito sa isang panig?

    Bunsod ng isyung ito, mistulang nalihis ng landas ang debate ukol sa RH Bill. Nagkamali ang The Varsitarian sa istratehiyang ginamit nila sa pagpapabatid ng mensaheng nais nilang iparating sa mga pakultad ng ADMU at DLSU. Imbes na makapag-ambag ng isang makabuluhang kontribusyon sa debate hinggil sa RH Bill, mas lalo lang nitong pinasidhi ang pagkakahati ng ilang sektor ng lipunang nagbabangayan dahil sa isyung ito. Sa huli, kailangang tandaan ng bawat isang hindi kailanman maitutuwid o mareresolba ang isang isyu gamit ang mga baluktot at may kinikilingang pangangatwiran.

    Matindi pa rin ang debateng namamayani hinggil sa RH Bill hanggang sa ngayon. Gayunpaman, hindi ito nangangahulugang kailangang maging personalan ang labanan. Napakaraming mapangahas na bansag sa mga pakultad ng ADMU at DLSU ang mababasa sa editoryal ng The Varsitarian kaya nga, marahil, marami ang naalarma nang inilabas ang artikulo sa website ng pahayagan. Masyadong naging personal ang atake ng editoryal sa isang isyung mas mainam sanang napanindigan kung walang kasamang mga pang-iinsulto at panalalait.

    Hindi mo kinakailangang ipagdiinan ang kamalian ng iba upang iangat at patunayan ang katotohanan ng iyong ipinaglalaban. Mas magiging lubos ang kahulugan ng mga pahayag kung may sarili itong pundasyong magpapatibay sa kredibilidad ng mensaheng nais nitong iparating. Indikasyon ng isang progresibong lipunan ang malayang pagpapalitan ng kanya-kanyang opinyon, at responsibilidad ng bawat sektor ng midya, lalo na ng mga pahayagan, na maging daan sa pagpapaunlad ng ganitong uri ng diskurso.

    Kung susuriing maigi, nanggagaling sa kakulangan ng pagsasabuhay sa konsepto ng responsableng pamamahayag ang lahat ng batikos at kritisismo na inaani ng nasabing artikulo. Bilang isang publikasyon, hindi sapat ang pagkakaroon lamang ng lakas ng loob sa pagsisiwalat ng kanilang mga paniniwala dahil mas mahalaga ang pagkakaroon ng mga pahayag na patas, makatwiran, at hindi nagkukubli ng katotohanan. Naniniwala ang APP na dapat magsilbing aral ito sa bawat mamamahayag pangkampus dahil hindi lang naman ang kredibilidad ng isang publikasyon ang nakataya sa pangyayaring ito, ngunit maging ang imahen ng lahat ng publikasyon sa mga kolehiyo’t pamantasan sa bansa.

    Makapangyarihan ang mga salita kaya nararapat lamang na gamitin ito nang may lubos na pag-iingat at responsibilidad. Kasama ang napakaraming indibidwal, umaasa ang APP na ito na ang huling beses na magagamit ang pamamahayag sa hindi makatwirang pagtalakay sa mahahalagang isyung makaaapekto sa sambayanan.

    With all due respect

    We from The LaSallian did not release an official stand on House Bill no. 4244, otherwise known as the Responsible Parenthood Bill, despite numerous requests and pressure from a majority of our own members, as well as various University stakeholders. This is because we respected, and we continue to respect, every person’s right to have his or her own informed opinion, including our individual editors and staffers. What we stand for in many issues is the process of discernment, and for one’s personal stand and conviction to surface from rigorous research, contemplation, and discourse, before pursuing determined action.

    Precisely because we are members of a Catholic University, following Pope John Paul II’s encyclical letter Ex Corde Ecclesiae and its challenge to university students, we encourage our individual staff to make personal judgments that may guide them to truth. Perhaps we may make recommendations, but we would never impose on the freedom of conscience (ECE II, Art. 2, sec. 4).

    We did not feel the need to impose any stance to support or refuse a bill that would blatantly disregard the stances of some of our editors and staffers.

    In this publication, we believe in independent thought, and we encourage our staffers to go against any norms in public opinion and rightfully deconstruct, and discern their own beliefs through issue-oriented critical thinking, if and only if it is what they believe in, and for as long as they too would respect the rights of others to voice an opinion contrary to their own.

    In light of published content, we know for a fact that The Varsitarian is against HB 4244, and we respect the unified publication’s stance. Moreover, we applaud UST’s official student publication for declaring their stance with such great conviction. They do go against the grain, as they said, and what they did takes courage, and a lot of arguments. In our opinion, however, the method of expression used to express the matter veered away from the real issue, while creating new and unnecessary ones.

    The RH Bill is an important issue that deserves constructive discourse. None of this constructive discourse, however, can come from ad hominem lambasting from any of the parties involved, whether Pro-RH or Anti-RH. We believe in sticking to the issues, and backing conclusions with substantial, objective arguments.

    This is the nature of sincere rational dialectic. We advocate constructive discourse, and the search for truth that Catholic Universities so aspire for can, in our opinion, be only attained through issue-oriented critical thinking.

    DISCLAIMER: The LaSallian is a publication and a separate entity from the institution that is De La Salle University; hence, its views do not necessarily reflect the views of DLSU or the Lasallian institution. Its opinion is also separate from and independent of its members, stakeholders, partners, alumni, staff, faculty, and students.

    UST disowns Varsitarian's stance vs 'lemons, cowards'
    BY RAPPLER.COM
    Posted on 10/09/2012 7:54 PM | Updated 10/09/2012 8:43 PM


    MANILA, Philippines – The University of Santo Tomas (UST) on Tuesday, October 9, disowned its student newspaper's opinion against Ateneo de Manila University and De La Salle University professors who support the Reproductive Health (RH) bill.

    In a statement, UST said it supports its student newspaper, The Varsitarian, in opposing the RH bill. But it said it grants The Varsitarian editorial independence.

    "Thus, the opinion expressed in the Varsitarian opinion-editorial, insofar as it supposedly called the pro-RH bill professors of the Ateneo de Manila University and the De La Salle University as 'intellectual pretenders and interlopers' does not bear the university's imprimatur," UST said in a statement posted on its official Facebook page. The university's Sept 30, 2012 edition of the Varsitarian however clearly referred to the professors as such.

    The university, nevertheless, acknowledged that the bill is a "highly charged" issue that brings emotions to a "feverish pitch in the healthy exchanges of ideas."

    "The University of Santo Tomas has been steadfastly consistent in its opposition to certain provisions of the bill which are repugnant to the teachings of our Catholic faith," it added.

    UST's official student publication sparked heated reactions after it published the controversial opinion-editorial. The newspaper also challenged them to resign after their universities "treated them with kid gloves."

    “They have clung on to their faculty membership in Catholic institutions. They want to have their cake and eat it, too. They’re intellectual mercenaries, nothing more, nothing less," the Varsitarian said.

    The Varsitarian adviser Lito Zulueta, for his part, acknowledged that the editorial may have been "un-Christian." "We admit that, and we apologize for that," Zulueta said in an interview aired on GMA-7's Saksi newscast on Monday, October 8.

    Zulueta, however, stood by the newspaper's stance against the RH bill.
