I am an unwed mother.

MANILA, Philippines — Insisting on their religious and academic freedoms, Catholic educational institutions are seeking exemption from a provision in the new Magna Carta of Women banning the dismissal of unwed mothers from employment or school. ~ Philippine Daily Inquirer Article

Do you know how hard it is to be pregnant with child in this day and age? Without a husband? Without a college degree? Without a decent job? (sad)

Pre-natal checkups. Hospital bills. Childbirth. Post-partum stress. If you think it’s hard then think again! Especially if you’re a man! Because it’s much harder than you think! (angry)

Look at me. Huhu. I’m so ugly. I have stretch marks. Nausea. Heartburn. Hemorrhoids. I vomit. I pee 24 times a day. Now you’re telling me that I can’t go to school? Or go to work? (insecure)

I did not have this baby via asexual reproduction! If you should really do this to me, let those unwed fathers have a slice of the bitter cake too! And for crying out loud, stop giving God a bad name! (beyond hormonal)

Speaking of cake. Does anybody have a cake? With strawberries and sardines on top? Yoohoo! Cake? (hungry)

    may kaibigan akong nasa ganayang kalagayan ngayon pero makikita mo talaga yung pagpu-pursige niyang makatapos. hindi tama yun.

      ano na lang ang ipakakain nila sa mga anak nila kung hindi sila makapag aral o makakuha ng trabaho. being an unwed mother is already hard as it is.

      hindi ba sila nanggaling sa tiyan ng nanay nila?

    may mga kakilala at relatives akong maagang nag aasawa..
    though may husband sila, un nga lang hs grad lang..
    walang trabaho..

    ang nakaka lungkot, maaga nilang pinasok ang ganoong sitwasyon
    dahil para lamang maiwasan ang mga hirit ng magulang..

      pero hindi naman siguro karapat dapat na i discriminate ang mga unwed mothers sa mga schools and institutions. education at decent work na nga lang ang natira sa kanila, kukunin pa ng simbahan.

      this is madness!

    women’s rights. children’s welfare, discrimanation….just among the many issues that sparks the fire in me. there is no reason for this kind of treatment in an already impoverished country…especially in a christian society. He “who have not sinned, can throw the first rock.” sad 😦

    hmf! may fetish pa naman ako sa mga buntis…how curvaceous, and soft, and mammary gifted(?) sila…tse! sinira mo happy place ko dahil sa emo mo!

    I agree. It’s unfair to dismiss unwed mothers from school/work – that would just make the situation worse for them and the child they’re bearing. 😦

    As for men who get women pregnant and not even give a small tinge of support – ban them from school and work! They don’t deserve to be there. It says a lot about how ‘responsible’ they are.

      kaya nga e. double standard. dapat mga tatay na pabaya managot din sa ginawa nila. so unfair.

    Favor ako na madismiss ung mga unwed mothers sa school lalo na ung mga menor de edad. Hindi kasi maiiwasan ung discrimination; ung macriticize sila hindi lang nga mga adults pati na rin ng mga kapwa estudyante. Baka magcause lang un ng maraming emotional probs at makaapekto sa baby. And since teenagers pa sila hindi naman lahat naiintindihan completely ang sitwasyon. Anyway they can go back naman after giving birth. Pero ung mga adults na nagwowork this is really difficult lalo na kung wala namang ibang masasandalan. just my opinion.

    Have a nice day. 🙂

      well that’s another way to look at it. 🙂

      pero ako anti pa rin ako. we have opposing opinions but it’s a good thing we are talking about it. 🙂

    Stupid yan sila talaga. Are they on a higher moral ground to really push for such a blinded understanding of norms? Pwe!

    • Nobe

      September 23, 2009 at 3:23 pm

      it’s not anymore a question of morals but the right of every pregnant woman to live a dignified life, regardless of the circumstances of how they got pregnant. yun lang yun.

    hello, as-to-date – may i know the stand of CSC on this issue? are they still banning unwed moms to work in the government office? what can unwed moms do if an administrative or civil service law was filed against them? do the Magna Carta for Women help them?
