Philippines, Congress not yet ready for same-sex marriage – Roman
Bataan 1st District Representative Geraldine Roman is proposing the civil union bill at the House. But she said the country is not yet ready for same-sex marriage.
The transgender politiko took to Facebook on Sunday, June 24 to explain why she has not yet pushed for the passage of same-sex marriage.
“To say that the Philippines and Congress are already ready for Same-Sex Marriage would simply be DISHONEST. For us to actually effect changes in our country, we have to keep our two feet on the ground and face the reality that civil partnership has greater chances of being approved in Congress,” said Roman.
“Should we fight for something that will never win at this point in time? Or should we lobby for something that will give us practically the same rights and obligations and that has more certainty of being passed into law? A dose of realism will definitely guide us in choosing the right path,” she added.
