Miss World: ‘I’m Against Abortion,’ ‘Against Divorce’ and ‘Sex is For Marriage’
CNS News ^ | 10/21/2013 | Michael W. Chapman

Posted on 10/21/2013 5:49:38 PM PDT by markomalley

Twenty-three-year-old Megan Lynn Young, who was recently crowned Miss World 2013 at the Miss World Pageant, said she is pro-life, does not use contraceptives, opposes divorce, and thinks the way to avoid unwanted sex is to “just say no.”

Miss Young was born in Virginia to a Filipino mother and an American father. She lives in the Philippines and represented that nation at the Miss World Pageant held in Bali, Indonesia on Sept. 28.

In an interview on the Filipino news show ANC Headstart, as first reported by LifeSite News on Oct. 14, host Karen Davila asked Young about a controversial reproductive health (RH) law currently in limbo in the courts in the Philippines and related topics.

Davila asked, “When it comes to the RH law, are you pro- or anti-RH?”

Young said, “Well, I’m pro-life and if it means killing someone that’s already there, then I’m against that, of course. I’m against abortion.”

Davila then asked about contraception, and Miss Young said, “I don’t engage in stuff like that as of now. I think that’s – uh, sex is for marriage. That’s my belief. So, when it comes to the RH bill, as long as my beliefs are no abortion; it should be with your partner for life. Then that’s my stand.”

Davila also asked about divorce, and Miss Young said, “Divorce. I’m actually against divorce, because I’ve seen, of course, that in my family. So I think that if you marry someone, that should be the person you should be with forever, through sickness and health, through good and bad, you should be with that person.”

Davila continued, “Now, a woman as gorgeous as yourself, how do you say no to sex? “

Miss Young said, “You just say no. If they try to push you, then you step away because you know that that person doesn’t value you, doesn’t value the relationship as much – and if the guy is willing, you know,  to sacrifice that, then that  means a lot.”

The Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act (RH) in the Philippines,  was passed and signed into law there in 2012. However, because of legal challenges to its mandates on controversial products and services, such as sterilization, contraception, and abortion-inducing drugs, the Supreme Court delayed implementation of the law in early 2013 and re-emphasized the delay in August.

In the Philippines, about 80% of the population identifies as Catholic and 12% as Protestant; another 5% identifies as Muslim.

In light of her statements, I’m willing to overlook the obnoxious photoshopping of her skin!

(Not to mention the fact I’m twice her age... we all need to make sacrifices!)

This young woman is a winner, no matter the outcome of the contest. She has good values.

Now I see that she actually won the contest. So that makes her a winner two times over.

If she was a melanin challenged American they'd attack her and take her crown away for being a 'hater'. Since she is from a third world country (well, maybe the Philippines qualifies as a second world, or one and a half world, country) they will try to ignore her and claim that she is 'unsophisticated' and ignorant,
I applaud her wisdom and courage for speaking plainly.

She’s claiming she’s 23? No way. If she’s really Filipino, then looking like that she is probably in her late 30s.

You would believe any of them? Did you learn nothing when you were dating?

Absolutely, and she defininately, works.

Okay, for the record, she is part Filipino. That puts her in the top five countries of feminine beauty.

1)Iceland (all of Scandanavia, really)
2)Japan
3)Poland
4)Phillipines
5)Ireland.

This ENDS this discussion. There are NO other right answers.
