Removing Section 377A threatens family unit
I SUPPORT the retention of Section 377A of the Penal Code -
a law criminalising gay sex - to uphold our moral and family values.

The petition by Nominated MP Siew Kum Hong does not serve
the interests of Singapore as a whole but only of one small sector.

In fact, the removal of this law will lead to the disintegration of
our social fabric, the family unit, which the Government has
been establishing pro-actively.

I believe that strong families will lead to a strong nation.

I fully support the Government in keeping Section 377A. Gross
indecencies must be penalised.

For the survival of our nation and the welfare of the future
generation, the petition by NMP Siew should be ignored.
