Megan Lynne Young, a 23-year-old Filipino American beauty queen recently won the Miss World Philippines title and was later crowned as Miss World 2013 in Bali, Indonesia.

She is the first Filipina to win the title of Miss World but she also has another claim to fame: she is pro-life.

“I’m against abortion,” she says in a new interview. “I’m pro-life and if it means killing someone who’s already there, then I’m against that, of course. My beliefs are, no abortion.”

“Sex is for marriage, that is my belief,” she adds.
