Sen. Pia Cayetano's statement on the RH Law oral arguments

"I look forward to Tuesday's oral arguments on the RH Law where the petitioners will present their case. I also welcome the opportunity, when our turn comes, to present before the High Court our arguments on its constitutionality and legality.

"I am confident that our group - the respondents and the intervenors - have a strong case. As the sponsor of the RH Law in the Senate, I worked meticulously on each and every provision to ensure its constitutionality.

"To deny RH services from our people would be a denial of human rights and a grave social injustice, especially against women and the poor.

"Lastly, I call for the early resolution of this case. The implementation of the law has been restrained for 120 days and in the meantime, 15 women die each day."
