I have removed my share of uteruses in my career. Hysterectomy is a pretty straightforward affair. Unlike having a brain or a heart, the presence or absence of a uterus will not be a deterrent to having a practicable human life. As readers with Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome know, it is entirely possible to have a rich, meaningful, lengthy, fulfilling existence without that organ whose primary function is nurturing a fetus.
So Janet Lim Napoles (whom I have written about here and here and here and here) has thought that telling her truth would probably set her free, so on the eve of her surgery, she went on to spill her beans at Secretary De Lima.
The story gets murkier because Janet is now waving her own list (as opposed to Benhur Luy’s and other whistleblowers’s) of pork barrel scam players among government officials. I can imagine people in the Executive Department and Legislative Houses craning their necks and going up on their toes, itching to know if (god forbid!) their names are on this List.
Oh Janet … were you thinking of doing a St. Paul-on-the-road-to-damascus stunt, or were you just biding your time playing everyone against each other with the goal of saving your skin (and/or your loot)? By now, nobody in this country believes that anybody in politics is untainted by corruption. So much so that any person on your list, however seemingly unlikely, will probably elicit sighs of resignation instead of surprise.
I found in the news that the reason for your profuse vaginal bleeding was myoma, adenomyosis and endometrial hyperplasia. Close call, but thank god it’s not cancer, right? Now if only prosecuting you and everyone involved in your scam is as straightforward as removing your uterus.
