Hindi maaakusahang namumulitika si Dingdong Dantes nang mag-react at kumontra sa ipinatutupad na policy ng Pines City Colleges na mandatory pregnancy test sa kanilang female students dahil hindi tatakbo sa 2019 mid-term elections ang aktor.
May mga pulitiko ring umalma sa polisiyang ito.
Heto ang reaction ni Dingdong na idinaan sa Twitter: “Despite the College’s intention to protect the health of the students and their child, and to contribute in resolving teenage pregnancy in the country, this act remains to be a concrete violation of the basic right to privacy and of the Magna Carta for Women.
“Imposing enrolment limitations and sanction to non-compliant students found out to be pregnant are discriminatory.
“I hope the school management will review the implications of the said memorandum, and support the Commission on Higher Education along with other women rights advocates who are into this case.
“I also hope that the National Youth Commission @NYCPilipinas will follow suit especially that this concerns young women.”
Kaya lang, sa latest news, tuloy ang pagpapatupad ng Pines City Colleges sa nasabing policy.
Sabi ng statement: “Pines City Colleges by its policy of pregnancy tests for female students who are enrolling in any subject that would endanger both mother and child. It is a policy agreed to by our students upon their enrolment in this institution. We believe it is a policy protective of our students while they are in our care and are deployed to internship programs in hospitals and to clinical practice.”
Samantala, tuluy-tuloy na ang taping nina Dingdong at Dennis Trillo sa action drama na Cain at Abel dahil sa November 19 na ang pilot.
May pinost si Dingdong na picture ni Dennis sa Instagram (IG) niya, may hawak na baril si Dennis at may caption na, “Kakampi. Kaaway. Kapatid @dennistrillo.”
Sumagot si Dennis ng, “Wow salamat kapatid @dongdantes.”
May clue sila sa role nila sa Cain at Abel, kung saan kasama sa cast sina Eddie Gutierrez at Dina Bonnevie.
Sina Mark Reyes at Don Michael Perez ang directors.
