“What kind of justice system, nay society do we have to let this inhumanity and injustice to mother and child happen?”
“The movant [Nasino] thus prays that she be placed on a furlough so that she may be with her baby during her last days.”
“There is nothing more heartbreaking for a mother than being separated with her child whose life is now at greatest risk.”
“Where is justice when a US soldier convicted of homicide over the killing of Jennifer Laude was granted absolute pardon while hundreds of incarcerated Filipinos languish in prisons because of fabricated and baseless charges meant to silence them from speaking against government injustices.”
“Amid the pandemic and the modified enhanced community quarantine, authorities are pushing for the heartless and inhuman act of separating a baby from her only source of nutrition and protection at this early stage of her life.”
“The decision to take away a newborn child from her mother is a callous, inhumane act against a person who fears for her life and of her child despite the concerning fact that Reina Mae doesn’t deserve even a single day in jail.”
