MANILA, Philippines – The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued a 120-day status quo ante order stopping implementation of the RH Law, and set oral arguments on June 18.

The restraining order was issued in response to consolidated petitions of various groups that sued to halt the law soon after its passage before Christmas.

Those who voted for the restraining order were Justices Presbitero Velasco Jr., Teresita de Castro, Arturo Brion, Diosdado Peralta, Lucas Bersamin, Roberto Abad, Martin Villarama Jr., Jose Perez, Jose Mendoza, and Bienvenido Reyes.

Those who voted against it were Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno and Justices Antonio Carpio, Estela Perlas-Bernabe, Mariano Del Castillo, and Marvic Leonen.
