Know Their Stand: Eddie Villanueva, Senatorial Candidate

eddie-villanueva-platforms-profile-pictureElections 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 Eddie Villanuevas responses on nine important issues, based on GMA News’ Mga Isyu ng Bayan.

 

Reproductive Health – FOR

“I’m always against abortion because abortion is murder. However, I’m in favor of some family planning, responsible parenthood, because the children must be properly guided and be protected as they grow up. Kaya we must have genuine concern for the future of the children.”

 

Sin Tax – FOR

“I’m in favor of that, nang sa gayon ma-discourage ‘yung mga gumagawa ng sin — kaya nga tinawag na sin eh. At the same time, mag-raise ng funds ang gobyerno para mabigyan ng tamang pondo ang hospitalization, medical care at saka ang education ng mga kabataan.”

 

Cybercrime – FOR

“Well, kailangan ma-repeal ‘yung libel provisions. I am in favor of regulating the Internet users to protect the morals of the young people, or else without morality, the nation will go to the dogs.”

 

Freedom of Information – FOR

“Absolutely. We have been supporting the Freedom of Information Act.”

 

Anti-Political Dynasty – FOR

(no comment)

 

Divorce – AGAINST

“Sabi ng Good Book, God hates divorce. However, there are some exceptions. Halimbawa, kung ang asawa ay nagkasala ng infidelity o domestic violence, ‘yun ang mga exceptional cases na pinapayagan ng bible ang divorce. Pero generally, God hates divorce, sapagkat ang family ay dapat proteksyunan, ang kinabukasan ng mga bata ang number one, hindi ang kinabukasan ng mga magulang. Iyong kinabukasan ng mga bata ang priority sa akin.”

 

Death Penalty – FOR

“Ang sabi ng Good Book, ang death penalty should be applied to heinous crimes nang sa ganoon, magkaroon ng peace and order ang lipunan. Kung hindi, kaliwa’t kanan ang chaos at anarchy, sapagkat hindi matatakot ang mga merong criminal minds na umabuso.”

 

Same-Sex Marriage – AGAINST

“I am for the protection and respect ng political rights ng lahat, regardless of gender. Pero pagdating sa marriage of same sex, sabi ng Good Book, huwag gayahin ‘yung nangyari sa Sodom and Gomorrah dahil darating ang paggunaw sa isang bansa pag ‘yun ay ginawa.”

 

Total Gun Ban – AGAINST

“I’m against total gun ban kasi walang bansa na merong total gun ban. Kung merong ganung polisiya, ang mga kriminal lang ang magmamay-ari ng gun. Kaya importante lang, strict enforcement of the rules and regulations with proper psychiatric and psychological test (para sa) lahat ng nag-a-apply.”
