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, Im pro-life and if it means killing someone thats already there, then Im against that, of course. Im against abortion.
Davila then asked about contraception, and Miss Young said, I dont engage in stuff like that as of now. I think thats uh, sex is for marriage. Thats 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 thats my stand.
Davila also asked about divorce, and Miss Young said, Divorce. Im actually against divorce, because Ive 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 doesnt value you, doesnt 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.
Well, I guess the chaps in the re-education camps will enjoy her company!
(A preemptive strike)
beautiful and well-spoken... no hemming and hawing :)
WOW - and smart and wise, too!
Attack from the “Hail Satan” crowd in 3,2,1........
Sounds like a good kid.
Eh, she’s okay, but would she be willing to make a beer run in the third quarter of a close game?
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!)
She seems mean spirited, against eveything, how did she win?
Get out of the tree Yossarian!
Mom is a Pinay, dad is an American. What a combo — beautiful.
Boy are the PMSNBC folks going to whine about her...LOL
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.
