However, the SC is looking at the possibility of child abuse since some of his rights are being violated. While they are yet to defer a decision, the abogado said Leonen was firm in his stand that he took away his right to procreate while other justices dabbled on the complexities of various definitions.
But it was consensus among justices that abuse charges can still be filed even if he was already an adult.
Medyo stressful yung case!
