Philippine: Roque favors same-sex marriage, divorce

Harry Roque, a UniTeam senatorial candidate, supports the legalization of same-sex marriage because everyone has the right to love whomever they want.
Roque, a human rights lawyer, said if elected, he will introduce legislation to make same-sex marriage lawful for the LGBTQIA+ community.
“Pabor po ako diyan,” Roque explained, “since hindi po puwede manghimasok ang estado pagdating sa isyu kung sinong mamahalin at sinong magiging kapiling sa buhay.”
The Supreme Court denied a plea to revisit its September 2019 decision dismissing a petition to permit same-sex marriage on January 6, 2020.
Roque also stated that he supports divorce in order to protect children from their parents’ ‘poor marriage.’
“Pabor din po ako dyan kasi talaga naman pong may mga taong nagkakamali ang nagbabayad po ay ang mga anak when the parents are stuck in a bad marriage,” he said.
In August 2021, the House Committee on Population and Family Relations endorsed a bill for full approval that reinstituted absolute divorce as an alternative mode for the dissolution of marriage in the Philippines.
The committee unanimously approved the unnumbered substitute bill that would allow absolute divorce in the country.
