76) Punishment for discrimination (Inquirer.net)


Senator Paolo Benigno "Bam" Aquino IV


MANILA - A bill that seeks to prohibit and penalize discrimination on the basis of ethnicity, race, religion or belief, gender, sexual orientation, civil status, HIV status and other medical condition, among others, has been filed at the Senate.

In filing Senate Bill 2122, neophyte Senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV noted that while the Philippines was a signatory to numerous international agreements that seek to ensure respect for the human rights of all persons, some sectors continue to experience discrimination in schools, workplaces, public service, as well as commercial establishments.

“Unfortunately, reality has yet to catch up with the noble intetnions of these numerous laws and international agreements,” Aquino said in his explanatory note of the bill.

“In schools, workplaces, commercial establishments, public service, police and military, prejudicial practices and policies based on sexual orientation, gender and cultural identity limit the exercise and enjoyment of basic human rights and fundamental freedoms, as well as impede or delay the delivery of basic services,” he said.

He cited, for instance, the employment practices that prioritize single over married job applicants “despite the fact that there is no empirical link between a person’s civil status and his or her job performance.”

He also noted the continues oppression against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) community continues “primarily because of misconceptions and ignorance.”

“LGBT students, for instance, are refused admission or expelled from schools due to their sexual orientation or gender identity,” said the senator.

“Companies block the promotion of LGBT employees due to the deeply embedded notion that homosexuality is an indication of weakness,” he said.

Aquino said laws, such as the anti-vagrancy law, were also being abused by law enforcement agencies to harass gay men.

His proposed measure then seeks to prohibit and prohibit discrimination that is “indirectly or directly based on the actual or perceived ethnicity, race, religion or belief, political inclination, social class, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, civil status, HIV status and other medical condition.”

The bill considered unlawful discriminatory acts such as inflicting stigma; denial of political, civil, and cultural rights; denial of right to education; denial of right to work; denial of access to goods and services; denial of right to organize; inflicting harm on health and well-being; engaging in profiling; abuses by state and non-state actors; detention and confinement; and other analogous circumstances.

Under “denial of right to work,” the bill declares it unlawful for any person to deny employment in government institutions, including police and military service, based on the bill’s definition of discrimination.

The Commission on Human Rights, under the bill, should investigate and recommend the filing of a complaint against any person/s who would violate the proposed law.

Any person who would be found guilty of discriminatory practices as defined by the bill could face up to 12 years imprisonment or/and a fine of up to P250,000.

  1. Are you still ok pinoypositive?

  2. Pinoypositive please say that you are ok

  3. Internet Sites like Poz dating sites or support groups can be great places to meet with other people who already know what you're going through. Going into a date knowing that your partner has that in common with you can take a lot of the stress away. This can cut out Rule 2 altogether.

  12. All thanks to Dr. UTU if not for him I don't know what will have become of me today. I married my husband who was HIV positive like myself. We accepted it as fate since there is no cure. Two years after our marriage my life was torn apart when our family doctor diagnosed me of genital herpes virus I know it was from my ex whom I have dated years back. I became very worried because I don't know what will be my husband judgment when he finds out. I searched everywhere both on internet for cure but no success until my husband started suspecting but still he wasn't sure. I don't want to loose my marriage I prayed everyday with hope that there is a cure. I searched without rest blogs, websites, everything google says about herpes and cure and peoples comments one evening after work I was surfing the internet on herpes cure I saw a friend who was giving testimony on how DR. UTU have helped cured her of her herpes virus I immediately contacted her to confirm if her testimony was real. She told me it was. She also told me about African Herbs and Herbalist and Dr Utu. She then gave me Dr. Utu contact, which I contacted him immediately. He told me about his Herbal Medicines and how he has helped many people get healthy with fruits and vegetables and also cured many with his Roots and traditional Herbs, I was interested. He prepared and sent me Herbal medicine for both HERPES & HIV through DHL I used this medicines for both HERPES and HIV carefully as was prescribed by him for 1week and 4days without my husband notice. I waited for a month then went for medical test in a different hospital and I was both herpes and HIV negative I felt reborn. I showed my husband my result and told him everything including DR UTU. He contacted DR UTU who also sent him HIV Herbal Medicine. He used this Medicines for just 8days, then we both went to our family doctor who confirmed my husband HIV negative and me still negative. Our family doctor, Dr Paul is a good Christian and often advice his patients to use natural remedy. Based on confidential he do introduce some of his patients to DR UTU for Herbal cure.
