Voting to end debates on the Reproductive Health Bill (RH Bill) is today instead of tomorrow, August 7. During the meeting in Malacañang, President Aquino asked the 180 House representatives present to move RH Bill forward. Both pro, anti RH Bill agreed to end debates today. Undersecretary Manolo Quezon shares this infographic on how a law is made. What happens after the voting to end the period of debate?

How a law is made, an infographic from the Official Gazette page on the Legislative Branch of government. For those discussing the August 7 vote on Responsible Parenthood, what the House will be voting on is to end the period of debate, to allow the period of amendments to start. You can find that period in the Second Reading portion of the infographic.

The vote to end the RH Bill debates is a preview to the final vote.
