President Aquino asked the 180 House representatives present in today’s caucus to move RH Bill forward. Both pro, anti RH Bill agreed to end debates today. After a period of initial objections from Rep. Bagatsing, Rep Mandanas, Rep Rodriguez and Rep Magasaysay , Rep Biazon moved the motion. He asks ” WHo should we listen? He says let us listen to the people. 82% want the #RHBill.” The motion to terminate debate was then approved. More AYES were heard.

With 231 legislators present on August 6 at 6:06 pm, the ayes have it!
