The RH Bill Story: Contentions and Compromises
- About the Book
Truly gripping is the detailed narration of what actually took place during the Senate and House debates. This is valuable documentation for most civil society pro- and anti-RHadvocates who can only occasionally, or sometimes never, gain access to the floor debates. What was actually said, or not said—the assertions, the rebuttals, the continuing attacks and defenses—offer intriguing insights into how contentious laws are passed in this country. A compelling read for all.
