Singapore Democrats support repeal of Section 377A

In accordance with our party principles, the SDP supports the call to repeal Section 377A of the Penal Code.

In the section What We Stand For on this website, we stated: “As a nation, we must not only show tolerance but also acceptance of our fellow citizens regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation, or political persuasion. Discrimination of our fellow human beings has been one human frailty that has wreaked much destruction and misery.”

We stand by our words and say unambiguously that Section 377A discriminates against a segment of our population and that discrimination, in whatever form, has no place in society.

We therefore call on the PAP Government to repeal the law.
