The senators were given time to explain their votes on RH Bill. Each senator has their own reason on how they voted to the bill.

Sen. Edgardo Angara-Yes to RH bill because it is an affirmation of human rights. Provisions of RH Bill responds to challenges of the times. I acknowledge concerns of Catholic community. But RH Bill does not legalize abortion.

Sen. Joker Arroyo- This bill promises more than it can deliver, because sex is not the root of poverty, it is not the cause of underdevelopment.

Sen. Allan Cayetano-  If daughter who is a teenager now, gusto ko bang bigyan sya ng condom? Of course not. But as a parent, I can only do so much. We will fight not only to protect marriages. This is not an incentive to the married, this is also for the unmarried.

Sen. Pia Cayetano- This bill isn't for me, Miriam and Loren because we have the means. This bill is for every woman who don't have this privilege.

Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago- I vote yes. The Catholic church has steadfastly rejected RH Bill. No force more powerful than an idea whose time has come. Catholic church has made many mistakes because it is a human institution. God gave me a conscience, gave me a brain. He asked me to use it for the good of my fellowmen.

Sen. Jinggoy Estrada- Hindi ba dapat gabayan natin sila? We should not be propagating contraceptive mentality. Wag nating hayaan ang pagbaba ng moralidad sa bansa.
Sen. Chiz Escudero-Voting for or against RH Bill does not make a person good or evil.Pabor ako sa RH Bill dahil gusto kong bigyan ng pagkakataon ang mga kabataan na magpasya para sa kanilang mga sarili

Sen. Guingona- State should ensure people are given access. I want to defend the right of every woman to control her body.  This bill is about meaningful choices based on our dreams and aspirations.

Sen. Gringo Honasan- It is callous not to sympathize with issues of overpopulation and security of children. This proposed law is a band-aid solution. I vote against the RH Bill. 

Sen. Ping Lacson- This is the true essence of democracy. The majority prevail.

Sen. Loren Legarda- Our goal isn't just to lower infant mortality rate, but also to uplift their quality of life.The RH debate is not about a house divided, but about a country that wants to see the truth.

Sen. Bong Marcos- It became clear to me, we must do something for them. RH Bill is such an opportunity.

Sen. Koko Pimentel- This alternative expenditures can be used to reduce diseases suffered by people.Condoms are merely tools for people's erotic adventures. I vote no to responsible free sex.

Sen. Ralph Recto- RH Bill is not a rubber, not one size fits all. RH Bill is one small way in a number of measures for a nation to be prosperous and peaceful. I will vote yes today on the condition that some provisions will not be resurrected like zombies.

Sen. Bong Revilla- I cannot, in my conscience, vote in favor of the RH Bill. Life is a gift, not a curse. Lani and I lost a daughter due to complications caused by contraceptives.  I stand as the voice of the 
unborn. I will vote accdg to my conscience. I vote NO.

Sen. Tito Sotto- It seems the gov't is a lackey of intl orgs that would hinder the influence of developing [third-world] nations. Colleagues were made to believe the marketing strategy being used by groups abroad.

Sen. Manny Villar- I asked my conscience and decided to vote NO to RH Bill.
