The first ever Filipina-American to be crowned Miss World revealed her traditional values in a recent television interview.
Megan Young, the 23 year-old who was crowned Miss World on Sept. 28, said in a recent television interview that she is pro-life, rejecting both abortion and contraception.
Young, who was born in Virginia but moved to the Philippines with her family as a child, was interviewed on ANC, a Filipino news network, when she was asked about the country's recent adoption of a reproductive health law, which was signed by president Benigno Aquino III on Dec. 21, 2012.
The new law mandates sex education in middle and high schools and subsidizes contraceptives, including potentially abortion-inducing drugs.
