Today, I choose to muster enough courage to break my silence especially on issues that have repercussions to a great number of people. I choose to develop my competencies by leaps and bounds so I can be in a better position to tackle social concerns. I choose to equip myself so I can stand for my convictions without worries of being hit. I choose to develop my character so I will have nothing to fear, nothing to hide, nothing to lose.
My husband and I signed the following position paper.
How about you? What’s your stand on this?
Let me hear from you.
We vehemently express our position against House Bill No. 1799, An Act Introducing Divorce in the Philippines.
We disagree with Gabriela Representatives Luzviminda Ilagan and Emerenciana De Jesus who emphasized that legalizing divorce would give “married couples in irreparable marriages another legal remedy that they can resort to in addition to the country’s existing laws on legal separation and annulment.”
