Debates over RH bill may extend to next year, says senatorBy Tetch Torres
MANILA, Philippines — Debates over the controversial reproductive health (RH) bill may extend to next year, Senator Gringo Honasan said over Radyo Inquirer 990AM.
“Sa akin, mas mabuti na ipagpatuloy ang masusi at maingat na talakayan kahit magtagal pa ito ng konti dahil ano man ang desisyon na gagawin natin ay mararamdaman hindi lang ng kasalukuyan kundi sa mga susunod pang henerasyon,” Honasan said.
Honasan said senators would be filing amendments to the bill which he said may cause further delay.
“And there will be intense debate for every amendment,” Honasan said.
He added that some senators were also undecided whether to vote for or against the RH bill.
