teampnoy-thumb400-trillanesElections 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 Antonio Trillanes IVs responses on nine important issues, based on GMA News’ Mga Isyu ng Bayan.

 

Reproductive Health – AGAINST

“I voted against it because of the provisions on sex education for grade six students and the multi-billion peso allocation for the procurement of contraceptives.”

 

Sin Tax – FOR

“I voted for it because it is a revenue measure to support our healthcare programs for the poor.”

 

Cybercrime – FOR

“I voted for it but I’m pushing for the removal of the cyberlibel and the DOJ’s automatic takedown powders.”

 

Freedom of Information – FOR

“I am the principal author of the Senate version and therefore, I am in favor of the bill. It is an instrument to promote transparency in government.”

 

Anti-Political Dynasty – NO STAND

“I am neither nor against it because it is irrelevant to whether a candidate will be corrupt and incompetent once elected.”

 

Divorce – AGAINST

“I am not for it because it is a policy option that would worsen the dire social dysfunctions that we have now.”

 

Death Penalty – AGAINST

“I am against it. Instead, I am pushing for a more effective law enforcement and a reformed justice system to curb rampant criminality.”

 

Same-Sex Marriage – AGAINST

“I am not for it.”

 

Total Gun Ban – AGAINST

“I am not for it because it is a policy that cannot be implemented. Instead, I am pushing for stricter gun controls, crackdown on loose firearms, and a more effective law enforcement.”
