Know Their Stand: Ricardo Penson, Senatorial Candidate


Ricardo-pensonElections 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 Ricardo Pensons responses on nine important issues, based on GMA News’ Mga Isyu ng Bayan.

 

Reproductive Health – FOR

“I think it should not be talked about anymore since it’s already a law, but I would have voted for it. It should be a choice for Filipino women.”

 

Sin Tax – FOR

“It’s long overdue. We need revenue and the sin tax law should be appropriated for health purposes.”

 

Cybercrime – AGAINST

“It should be repealed. We don’t need other law that will protect politicians from the public.”

 

Freedom of Information – FOR

“The right of reply should not be there. The law should allow public access to disbursement of public funds.”

 

Anti-Political Dynasty – FOR

“There should be no succession. The Constitution is clear about dynasties. Politicians have been making a mockery of our Constitution.”

 

Divorce – FOR

“This should be discussed. I will support this after proper education. Individuals should be given seminars on their responsibilities kapag nag-asawa.”

 

Death Penalty – AGAINST

“You don’t have to take somebody’s life just because he or she took somebody else’s life. That’s barbaric.”

 

Same-Sex Marriage – AGAINST

“Marriage is for propagating family, but it is high time for registered partnerships.”

 

Total Gun Ban – AGAINST

“There should be no total gun ban until our police forces become professional.”
