In the Philippines chief censor Henrietta Mendez ordered three cuts of Schindler's List, due to its scenes that displayed female nudity and sexual intercourse, before it could be shown. As a result of these proposed cuts Steven Spielberg pulled the film from screening in the Philippines. As a result of Mendez's actions, Philippine senators demanded the abolition of the Philippine censors board. Senate justice committee chairman Raul Roco stated "such narrow-mindedness precisely shows the dangers of censorship." Mendez argued that "the sex act is sacred and beautiful and should be done in the privacy of the bedroom."
Nice one Tita Henrietta! Because of you, I was forced to rent a copy of this title a year after its screening, in the “restricted” shelves where porn films are located. Because of the likes of you, I am so proud to have stepped foot, alive and bludgeoned in this wonderful nation of hypocrites! apir naman!
