The writer of the letter “377A: Majority not always right” (March 7) implies that most people in Singapore are ignorant and naive and so our Government should make tough choices to run the nation according to what it deems best.

His assumptions are questionable. As a Singaporean and a grandmother, I love Singapore and believe that good values have kept our families and nation strong and prosperous.

This success can be attributed to Singapore’s judicial system and the enforcement of good laws. Let us not change what has worked for our nation.

There is no basis that repealing Section 377A would generate greater economic productivity. On the contrary, it may create greater health and social issues that may hamper economic growth.
