DE LIMA CONDEMNS LAW FOR SEXUAL CONSENT AGE 12 / awareness will challenge their innocence








Detained Senator Leila De Lima filed Senate Bill No. 1949 raising the age of sexual consent from 12 years to 18 years. The bill seeks to protect the minors from sexual exploitation and abuse.


De Lima condemned the law which allows 12 years of age to be sexually aware considering their manners. She also added that the law subscribed sex education at school which will give them the entry to fully read the script but its understanding is at stake since they are suffering from identity struggles.




“In putting the age of consent on the same level as that of the age of majority, the State would safeguard the innocence of the youth, prevent sexual predators from deflowering our children, and finally put a premium on the virtue of the hope of this nation,” De Lima explained.
