Twenty-three-year-old Megan Lynn Young, who was recently crowned Miss World 2013 at the Miss World Pageant, said she is pro-life, does not use contraceptives, opposes divorce, and thinks the way to avoid unwanted sex is to “just say no.”
Miss Young was born in Virginia to a Filipino mother and an American father. She lives in the Philippines and represented that nation at the Miss World Pageant held in Bali, Indonesia on Sept. 28.
In an interview on the Filipino news show ANC Headstart, as first reported by LifeSite News on Oct. 14, host Karen Davila asked Young about a controversial reproductive health (RH) law currently in limbo in the courts in the Philippines and related topics.
Davila asked, “When it comes to the RH law, are you pro- or anti-RH?”
Young said, “Well, I’m pro-life and if it means killing someone that’s already there, then I’m against that, of course. I’m against abortion.”
Davila then asked about contraception, and Miss Young said, “I don’t engage in stuff like that as of now. I think that’s – uh, sex is for marriage. That’s my belief. So, when it comes to the RH bill, as long as my beliefs are no abortion; it should be with your partner for life. Then that’s my stand.”
