Anti-Child Pornography Bill in congress – pass this one, not cha-cha
this bill is much more worthwhile than the congressmen spending time on cha-cha. cha-cha has no value to the country. this anti-child pornography bill will benefit the country much more than cha-cha.
cha-cha is something nobody wants while this is something everyone, specially pinoy children need.

Tell them that it’s urgent If there is one great thing that President Gloria Arroyo can do with her awesome power in the Philippines is to use it for the well-being and protection of vulnerable children. All she has to do in her State of the Nation Address on July 27 to win a place in legal history is to tell her Congress that the Anti-Child Pornography Bill is “urgent.”
All the Representatives have to do is to vote “yes” and they will save thousands of children from rape and abuse in the years to come. That alone will be enough for the Congress to pass this bill, the Senate version has already been approved.
It’s very shameful that the Philippines, a nation where the vast majority of children are loved, cherished and protected by their families that the State has failed in its obligations under international treaties and protocols to protect them by law from the sexual abuse that is inevitable in the making and distribution of child pornography.
This is a moral issue of the highest order; the dignity of the nation is at stake before the world.
