Nacionalista Party-Team PNoy senatorial candidate Cynthia Villar on Tuesday called on everybody to observe sobriety with the Supreme Court’s decision to temporarily put on hold the implementation of the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act of 2012 or RA 10354.
“We should respect the decision of the Supreme Court, being the highest court of the land. We should strictly adhere to the stay order on the RH law,” said Villar.
While the former congresswomen opposes the RH law, she, however, reminded the public that as law-abiding citizens, we should all follow the ruling of the High Court.
“Our justices have already spoken about the highly contentious law that divided our the nation and our people,” she said.
“Let us just wait for the final decision of the High Court since this is just a temporary ruling,” she further said.
Voting 10-5, the High Court issued a status quo ante order for 120 days or four months on the implementation of RH law.
The Department of Health (DOH) had signed last Friday the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) for the RH law.
