‘Life is life’: Mayor Isko says he’s against legalization of abortion, even on rape-related cases

Presidential aspirant Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said he is against the legalization of abortion, even those rape-related cases.


During the 2022 Presidential One-On-One Interviews with Boy Abunda aired on Thursday, Jan. 27, Domagoso was then given a scenario where a woman got pregnant from rape.

“I don’t like taking life, so ayaw ko ng abortion. But I am pro-choice in terms of other things like ‘yung kung ano ‘yung mga accessible na pwedeng ibigay ng estado para sa family planning (so I don’t want abortion. But I am pro-choice in terms of other things like what are accessible that the state can provide for family planning),” he said.

“Dahil ‘yang bata na ‘yan na nasa sinapupunan ng nanay walang kakayanan ipagtanggol ang sarili niya. Buhay na ‘yun eh, life na ‘yon (Because that child in the mother's womb is incapable of defending himself. That's life, that's life),” he pointed out.

Domagoso also maintained that only God can take one’s life and not human beings.

“Life is life... When there is life already, nobody should take it away kasi ipinagkaloob ng Diyos ‘yan (because God gave it to us)."
