Aiza Seguerra strikes Tito Sotto for opposing condom distribution to schools

SHARE:

The singer slammed the senator for opposing DOH's program to distribute free condoms to schools.

Long-time singer Aiza Seguerra is currently the chairperson of the National Youth Commission (NYC) and she recently criticized Senator Tito Sotto III for his disapproval of the Department of Health's proposition to hand out free condoms to schools.

Being the NYC chairperson, Seguerra felt the need to stand up for what will contribute to the betterment of the Filipino youth. She shared her opinion on Facebook, emphasizing on the increasing rate of HIV, AIDS, and teen pregnancy among the youth.

“Mabilis na pagtaas ng HIV/AIDS lalo na sa kabataan, laganap na teenage pregnancy at patuloy na pagtaas ng populasyon ang nagiging sanhi kung kaya't marami sa ating mga kababayan ang naghihirap at hindi nakaka access ng dekalidad na serbisyo ng gobyerno," Seguerra said.

"Hindi po ito haka-haka, Mr. Senator. These are facts. Based on science and research,” she added.

Seguerra dispelled Sotto's perspective that the conservative culture of Filipinos should not be destroyed by the DOH.

“We have an epidemic here, a youth epidemic. It is precisely because of this ‘sentiment of a conservative culture’ kaya lalong pataas ng pataas ang HIV. Dahil sa conservative culture na ito, the Filipino people were denied of RH services for the longest time," Seguerra said.

"Damage has been brought upon our people by this conservative culture because it makes us decide based on beliefs at hindi hard evidence. Would you rather people keep dying of HIV/AIDS as long as hindi na ooffend ang sensibilities ninyo? Now, sino ang nag iimpose ng beliefs sa nakararami?” she added.
