 (Submitted at the Public Hearing of the Congressional Committee on Women and Gender Equality of the 16th Congress held on 10 February 2015)

10 February 2015

The Honorable
Rep.  Linabelle Ruth R. Villarica
Chair, Committee on Women and Gender Equality
House of Representatives of the Philippines
Batasan Complex, Quezon City

Dear Hon. Villarica:

We appreciate the opportunity you gave us to share our thoughts during the last public hearing on the matter of the legislative proposal, AN ACT PROHIBITING DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTITY, PROVIDING PENALTIES THEREFOR AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES or the Anti Discrimination Act.

We wish to reiterate our position aired during the last hearing on the matter, which we believe is amply covered by the transcripts of deliberations, that there is no compelling need to enact a law to address an “issue” that is based on anecdotal evidence; largely based on claims; and with no orderly and scientific documentation and likewise absent any in-depth studies.

We likewise wish to emphasize that such proposed enactment may actually bring about more issues and problems resulting from the provision of special rights to what you regard as the LGBT community that are not and were never even contemplated by Congress for the rest of the other sectors of society.

We wish to emphasize too that we do not recognize the existence of genders outside the usual male-female or man-woman natural classification of sexes for which the fundamental law of the land and its subsequent laws were designed to address in terms of rights and welfare provisions.

We believe that sexual orientation and gender identity are concepts or even mental constructs deliberately coined to force the adoption of the same in our legal statutes and provide social and moral legitimacy to a lifestyle that is not natural, totally opposed to natural law and ultimately will bring about the end of humanity as we know it. The legal recognition of the same being forced upon society will certainly result in even greater issues that we may not or will never even be prepared to accept. This bill is a “trojan horse” that will lead this nation to destruction, literally and morally.

As to the bill’s constitutionality, revisiting the ruling of the Supreme Court on the RH Law can be very enlightening and instructive.

Having said these reasons, among many others, we wish to again stress that we reject any effort on the part of Congress to enact any law that will redefine the natural order of human relationships as well as the general moral order of social relationships in society. Human social evolution will not be justly served by this proposal and on the contrary will lead to its regression. Anything contrary to the dictates of natural law will certainly lead to the annihilation of humanity. And we do not want to be active participants to what in our mind is a despicable initiative.

 

Thank you very much.

 

With assurances of our highest esteem, we remain,

 

Faithfully yours,

ERIC MANALANG
President
Pro-Life Phil. Fdn. Inc.
