Know Their Stand: Nancy Binay, Senatorial Candidate

BINAYNANCY_UNAElections are coming. If you are a voter, you should know who you are voting for and where they stand, especially when it comes to issues of secularism. Here are senatorial candidate Nancy Binays responses on nine important issues, based on GMA News’ Mga Isyu ng Bayan.

 

Reproductive Health  AGAINST

“I think yung pera na gagamitin to buy contraceptives mas may pangangailangan pa in terms of libreng bakuna na sana dun na lang ginamit kaysa sa contraceptives. I practice natural family planning and it worked for us, tama yung spacing ng mga anak namin.”

 

Sin Tax  FOR

“I think ‘yung version ngayon I would have voted for it.”

 

Cybercrime  FOR

“May apprehension din ako sa penalty clause niya, ‘yung criminally liable ‘yung libel. Pero nagiging high tech na rin ‘yung mga criminals lalung lalo na ‘yung… human trafficking and nagagamit talaga ‘yang cyberspace sa ganung crimes.”

 

Freedom of Information  FOR

(no comment)

 

Anti-Political Dynasty  AGAINST

“At the end of the day it’s the people who will vote for us and hindi naman automatic yun porke’t may kapareho kang apelyido nananalo na. Maraming families na yung second generation, yung asawa o kaya yung anak hindi naman nananalo.”

 

Divorce  AGAINST

“I am not for divorce, I believe that government should strengthen the family, not break it up.”

 

Death Penalty  AGAINST

“Hindi rin ako for death penalty kasi dapat pag-aralan natin kung papaano made-deter ‘yung talagang deterrent ng crime at saka ‘yung talagang strict implementation of our laws.”

 

Same-Sex Marriage  AGAINST

“Ang paniniwala ko pa rin between man and woman yung marriage.”

 

Total Gun Ban  AGAINST

“Ako kailangan muna pag-aralan ‘yung proseso ng pagkukuha ng gun permits kasi di ba ang nangyayari ngayon yung mga crimes na nangyayari hindi naman yan committed by people who have gun permits, ito ‘yung mga loose firearms. So I think unang-una i-strengthen, palawakin muna ‘yung paghuhuli diyan sa mga loose firearms.”
