Get it straight! Rowena Guanzon chimes in on lowered criminal liability age
Atty. Rowena Guanzon believes that the Philippine government has a bigger fish to fry. As the House moves to approve the lowering the age of criminal liability, the abogada wants the legislators to focus their attention on something else.
What legislators should raide is the age of a child n statutory rape. Make it below 18 , not 12 years old. https://t.co/if0DQEuvUM

Guanzon noted that it is worth looking at the age of consent. The abogada mentioned that the age involved in most statutory rape cases must be looked at if we are reforming policies relating to children.
The abogada suggested to “make it below 18.” She added that 12 years old is not cutting it anymore given the number of abuse cases in the country.
Hay nako, everyone seems to be thinking but them!
