MANILA, Philippines - Sen. Pia Cayetano took to Twitter to vent her ire on alleged plans to suspend deliberations of the Reproductive Health Bill until June 2013.

In her Twitter account, Cayetano said the Filipino people deserve a working Senate, adding that delaying the RH vote is irresponsible.

"Whether you are pro-RH bill or anti-RH, wouldn't you want your Senate to work and vote on this? Delaying a bill is so old politics," she tweeted.

"They're trying to condition the public that there's no time to finish RH bill. We are already in the period of amendments. Only need a few sessions days for this. Beyond that, it's just delaying tactics."

Cayetano and Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago are two of the staunchest advocates of the RH Bill in the Senate, while Senate Majority Floor Leader Vicente Sotto has fiercely opposed its passage.
