In an interview on the Filipino news show ANC Headstart, the recently crowned Miss World 2013, Megan Lynn Young, responded to questions about human sexuality.
Concerning a controversial anti-life law making its way through the Philippine courts, Miss Young stated:
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.
Asked about contraception, she 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.
Divorce. I’m actually against divorce, because I’ve seen, of course, that in my family. So I think that if you marry someone, that should be the person you should be with forever, through sickness and health, through good and bad, you should be with that person.
Then, get this question: “Now, a woman as gorgeous as yourself, how do you say no to sex? “
You just say no. If they try to push you, then you step away because you know that that person doesn’t value you, doesn’t value the relationship as much – and if the guy is willing, you know, to sacrifice that, then that means a lot.
Espousing those politically uncorrect views, how did Miss Young—born to a Filipino mother and an American father and living in the Philippines—ever get crowned “Miss World 2013”?
More to the point, doesn’t this entire line of questioning say a whole lot more about the interviewer–as representative of the mainstream media–than it does the interviewee?
The Motley Monk “kudos” to Miss World 2013, Megan Lynn Young, for her staunch defense of life! Hopefully during her year-long reign, this Miss World will be free to continue espousing her politically uncorrect views.
