Relevant paragraph of Sotto’s Turno En Contra speech against RH Bill (taken from the published copy found at senate.gov.ph):

Quote

http://www.senate.gov.ph/press_release/2012/0814_sotto1.asp

According, to Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, the use of the pill also causes severe gut dysbiosis. What is worse, drug induced gut imbalance is especially intractable and resistant to treatment either with probiotics or diet change. Gut imbalance brought on through use of the pill negatively impacts the ability to digest food and absorb nutrients. As a result, even if a woman eats spectacularly well during pregnancy, if she has been taking oral contraceptives for a period of time beforehand, it is highly likely that she and her baby are not reaping the full benefits of all this healthy food as the lack of beneficial flora in her gut preclude this from occurring. Pathogenic, opportunistic flora that take hold in the gut when the pill is used constantly produce toxic substances which are the by-products of their metabolism. These toxins leak into the woman's bloodstream and they have the potential to cross the placenta. Therefore, gut dysbiosis exposes the fetus to toxins. Not well known is also the fact that use of the pill depletes zinc in the body. Zinc is called "the intelligence mineral" as it is intimately involved in mental development.

And here's what was “lifted” from Sarah Pope’s blog:

According, to Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, use of other drugs such as the Pill also cause severe gut dybiosis.   What’s worse, drug induced gut imbalance is especially intractable and resistant to treatment either with probiotics or diet change.

What does this mean for your future child’s health?   A lot, as it turns out!

Gut Imbalance Reduces Absorption of Nutrients

First of all, gut imbalance brought on through use of The Pill negatively impacts the ability to digest food and absorb nutrients.   As a result, even if a women eats spectacularly well during pregnancy, if she has been taking oral contraceptives for a period of time beforehand, it is highly likely that she and her baby are not reaping the full benefits of all this healthy food as the lack of beneficial flora in her gut preclude this from occurring.

Not well known is the fact that use of The Pill depletes zinc in the body.  Zinc is called “the intelligence mineral” as it is intimately involved in mental development.   As a result, it is very important for women who have been using oral contraceptives to wait at least 6 months before becoming pregnant to ensure that zinc levels return to normal as low zinc is associated with lowered IQ and birth defects.

^note, pati yung misplaced na comma sa "According," - kopyang-kopya! :D

Sotto immediately denied that he plagiarized (obviously he didnt write that speech himself coz if he did, he would instantly know he's been caught):
http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/nation/08/16/12/sotto-denies-plagiarizing-parts-rh-bill-speech
Quote
But Sotto said he never hid the fact that the arguments he used in his speech came from a book of Dr. Natasha McBride, who is famous for developing a concept of gut and psychology syndrome.

"Yung blogger na sinasabi nila, pareho kami ng pinagkunan eh, si Natasha Campbell-McBride. In my speech, I've always said na hindi galing sa atin ito, messenger lang ako. Bakit ko naman iku-quote ‘yung blogger, ang kinu-quote ko si Natasha McBride," he explained.

Sotto added his critics are only bringing up the issue of plagiarism because they could not answer the arguments of McBride.

"Nauubusan [sila] ng sagot sa sinasabi ko so they attack me... Sagutin niyo yung sinabi ni Natasha McBride," he insisted on his critics.

Then last night, Sotto’s staff admits they (not the Honorable Senator!) did the lifting from Sarah’s blog:

Quote
http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/lifestyle/08/16/12/sottos-office-admits-copying-us-blog

Atty. Hector Villacorta, in a message posted on the Facebook page of Sarah Pope, said it was the senator's staff who lifted the content of the blogger's work without attributing it to her.

"I understand you felt slighted that your blog was not attributed to you which became part of the speech of the senator. Let me say that after asking my staff, indeed, your blog was used but only in quoting also from the same book of Dr. Campbell-Mcbride," he said.

Villacorta confirmed to ABS-CBN News and ANC that he indeed sent the message to Pope.

"We are both indebted to the book's author but if you wish that you also be credited with the contents of the book, let this be your affirmation. I can do it and by this message, I am doing it. Hope it satisfies you. But if it does not, what would you want us to do?" he said.

"What have we done to deserve your incriminating words. The senator did not lift it himself, we did. Did you want us to tell him to admit what he did not do? Who would you like to crucify for this oversight?" he asked after Pope lashed out at Sotto and directly accused him of plagiarizing her work.

"Forgive us our single trespass. We had no malice, we thought you would be happy about it. There was no injury. Hope this makes you feel better," Villacorta said.

Sarah Pope’s response:

Quote
http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/on-plagiarism-the-pill-and-presumptuousness/

"That is the issue and it was indeed plagiarism. If his staff did it, he condoned it.  He is responsible for your actions.   My blog was quoted, not Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. I put her work in my own words and you copied my words."

"A woman needs to know that the Pill can indeed harm her but this is NO REASON to take away this choice from her in the first place."

"I do not agree with Senator Sotto's position on this issue and he twisted the message of my blog to suit his own purposes against the women of the Philippines."

"Your lame comment does not make me feel any better."  

"A thief is a thief, Mr. Senator. Denying it won't get you off the hook.; it just makes you a lying thief..."


And apparently, Sotto’s speechwriter/s lifted from “5 bloggers and a briefing paper".  Here is Raissa Robles’ report:

http://raissarobles.com/2012/08/16/did-sen-sotto-copy-from-4-bloggers/

So why should the Honorable Senator quote the blogger? Maybe now he knows the answer to that. He should quote his source to avoid this kind of humiliation and ridicule he is now being subjected to. He (or his lawyer staff) should know by now that bloggers (the legit ones) are at a minimum, very internet-savvy, and they will immediately know how to find out if plagiarism was committed.

I guess this guy will now stop playing of being a smart ass because he ain't at all. A dumb and stupid didn't even do he's research before making he's so called privilege speech. I'm  just wondering why this guy still even in a senate. Plaigiarism in states faces a law suit this guy should have one.

I am sure sinasabon na yung gumawa nun.. Ang siyempre nahihiya din si Tito Sen.. Umiyak pa man din siya sa harap ng madlang people.. Carried away sa speech.. Ang galing naman nung nakapuna nun hano?

Sa nabasa ko sa book, kung nagpipills ang isang babae, at gusto niya magbuntis, dapat at least 2 years muna siya magstop na magpills, then after nun medyo safe and pwede na siya magbuntis para walang maging anumang defect magiging baby niya.. The book is What to Expect when you're expecting.. :)

Bakit kaya ako natawa nung umiyak si Senator Tito? 

Akala nya yata... Ready.... Shoot.... Action!

Ang galing kasi mambuntis ng mga babae....... kaya ayaw sa pills.... kaso ayaw rin umamin na nakabuntis.  hayyyy buhay.....

 :D Dumadami na kasi ang graduates at professionals na tamad! Kaya saludo ako sa mga nakapagtapos at nakakuha ng diploma noong panahong hindi pa uso ang google! OO kasalanan ng speechwriter na tamad yan pero kasalanan din ni Sotto yan. Una bilang magbabasa ng speech, ikaw ang tatayong Editor-in-chief/ copy reader ng babasahin mo. You have to make sure na well-researched ang topics sa speech at hindi plagiarized. May naencounter din akong ganyan, speech writer daw ng isang dating nasa gobyerno pero plagiarist din. Lintek na mga writers to, pinasusweldo kayo tapos ganyan trabaho nyo??? Bilang writer legal at ethical ang magquote ng ibang writers for purpose of 'referencing' pero hindi legal na akuin mong iyo ang sinulat o ideya ng iba. Ang pamimirata ng ideya ng iba ay masasabing pagnanakaw na rin. Pwedenamang magpara-phrase na lang at least lulusot yun. Pero pati sentence construction ay nakawin mo ibang usapin na yun. Hindi yun simpleng katamaran, iyon ay kabobohan at ang gamot sa bobo ay hindi nabibili sa mercury drug! :harhar:

Exposing Alfredo R. Melgar, the “blogger” credited for exposing Senate Majority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto III’s supposed plagiarism on the smear website of the neo-atheist Filipino Freethinkers, is no ordinary blogger after all.

Documents now show Alfredo earns his living from Likhaan2, one of the groups exposed by Sotto as having received thousands of dollars last year from the International Planned Parenthood Federation, the world’s largest provider of abortion services.---Anti-RHbill

eto pa hindi lang yata plagiarist, caught lying as well?

sourced from philippine star news:


Sotto erred in birth control pills claim?
 Home Updated August 17, 2012 06:03 PM 23 comments to this post

MANILA, Philippines - Amid his problem with plagiarism, Senator Vicente Sotto III may yet again be asked to explain on his claim on a birth control pill's brand that supposedly was the reason behind his son's death in 1975.
 
A pro-reproductive health bill Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/prorhbill) posted that the birth control pill brand -- Diane of Bayer Schering Pharma - mentioned by Sotto in his anti-RH bill speech last August 15 was introduced in 1978.
 
An entry in Bayer's website -- http://www.bayerpharma.com/en/company/history/index.php -- confirmed that the birth control pill brand was introduced that year.

In published stories quoting the senator, his son Vincent Paul died in 1975 or three years before Diane was introduced to the market.
 
"Diane po ang pangalan ng pills na ginamit ng aking asawa noon. Supervised po siya ng doktor habang ginagamit nya ito. Intellehente naman po ang asawa ko, alam niya kung paano gumamit nito. Malinaw po ang sinabi sa amin ng kanyang doctor, katuwang ang aking ina, Dra. Herminia Castelo Sotto, ** na ang pagbubuntis niya kahit may contraceptives ang maaring naging sanhi ng kumplikasyon, prematurity at eventually pagkamatay ng anak namin. Bakit ko po iimbentuhin ang katotohanang ito?" the senator said in his August 15 speech, which is a continuation of his August 13 speech titled "Turno en Contra."
 
The two speeches have become controversial, not because of its subject, but because of the supposed plagiarism committed by the senator. Parts of the speeches were supposedly copied from blogs.
 
Sotto had said that his son died five months after he was born in 1975.
 
The senator said that after his wife, actress Helen Gamboa, gave birth to their eldest daughter Romina in 1973, she was advised by her doctors to take contraceptives so as not to disrupt her schedule in doing movies.
 
However, the contraceptives did not work and Gamboa became pregnant with their first son.
 
He said that the weak heart of his son led to the need for regular blood transfusions, which went on until his death five months later.
 
“At that time I asked God why this happened to me. I badly wanted a son, why did you take him away from me? Thirty-seven years later, the Lord gave me his answer, it is my mission to stop this bill (from being approved),” Sotto said.
 
In the Facebook entry, pro-RH advocates scored Sotto for allegedly lying on the bill control pill's brand and date. Some comments said that the error was a result of poor research on the part of the senator.
