BACOLOD CITY, April 12 — Re-electionist Senator Loren Legarda maintain her stand and support to controversial reproductive health law despite having been tagged as “anti-life” by the Diocese of Bacolod.

“I am not fazed nor threatened (by the church’s campaign not to vote for her). This is democracy,” points out Legarda during her recent campaign sortie here.

Legarda said the campaign not to vote her by the church leaders is making her strong and made her closer to God.

“I always wear my rosary and pray for it always gives me strength and I can’t go out without wearing it,” she said, adding that she maintained her respect to the priests and bishops.

In fact, Legarda vowed to visit the San Sebastian Church here and meet Bishop Vicente Navarra and other bishops that are against her after May 13 elections.

Legarda also noted that politics should not go beyond what is expected of a public servant and it should not hinder development.

Politicians, regardless of party affiliations, should instead support whoever wins and run the government for it will benefit all, she said.

The senatorial bet in recent surveys is leading the race and when asked about it, she said her only secret is to keep on working so that the people will know her accomplishments.

She said that everywhere she goes, she only wear her face. “No frills, no drama, no gimmicks, no grand campaign trails,” she said.

Importantly, she said is how much a candidate worked hard for the people.

So politicians must focus on developments and not the negative side of politics, she said.

They should also unite for the common good of the people and progress for the country, she stressed.(PNA)
