Yes to RH Law

Ako hindi, pabor ako jan sa RH basta't mabigayan ng freedom of choice ang family for their own good kaya lang they must be properly informed.
 
Yes to divorce

I belive in the saying that what God joined together let no man put asunder. Tama sana yan pero we already violated that ano eh because we passed the annulment law. Diba eh ang annulment is just like divorce? Eh ganun din yun paghihiwalayin mo rin yun and that’s a long process compoared to divorce.

Divorce is much better it's not a welcome--not a happy--resolution of the case but it's better to end a bad marriage than to prolong the agony of a miserable marital union.
 
No to same-sex marriage

Ay no-no satin kasi talagang predominantly Catholic. We follow the teachings of the Catholic Church. Hindi talaga pwede yang same-sex marriage. It’s not in consonance with our norms ideals, beliefs of the Catholic Church. Ultimately you cannot it will boil down to morality instead of individual rights.

No to death penalty


Ako no to death penalty for simple reason na kapag yung nasentensyahan ng death e innocent later on di mo na mababalik ang buhay niya at saka para sakin ang sarap ng buhay niya pagkatapos niyang magkasala papasayahin mo kasi din siya... Kailangan magdusa muna sya
 
The only good thing about death penalty na sinasabi nila na nadedecongest yung jails and also to prove the sincerity of the government to bring justice to the victims.

On territorial row with china

Dalawa lang ang pagpipilian natin. Either to give it up or die for it. Kasi kung tinatayuan na ng structures yan atin iyan papanoorin mo lang? Di mo papadalhan ng  batas natin mga forces natin to drive them out dahil takot tayo eh wag ka nang lumaban. Give up mo na lang ganun ang mangyayari dun pero kung talagang atin yun talagang ipaglaban mo yan kahit mamatay atin yan eh.
