Kinumpirma ni Atty. Villacorta sa ABS-CBN News at sa ANC na nagpadala nga siya ng mensahe kay Sarah.
SARAH'S RESPONSE. Sinagot naman agad ni Sarah si Atty. Villacorta sa comment section din ng kanyang blog entry.
Aniya: “I don’t like the fact that my blog was used without my permission against the education of the women of the Philippines and their reproductive rights. That is the issue and it was indeed plagiarism.
“If his staff did it, he condoned it. He is responsible for your actions.
“My BLOG was quoted, not Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. I put her work in my own words and you copied it.”
Dagdag ng American blogger tungkol sa isyu ng reproductive rights: “A woman needs to know that the Pill can indeed harm her but this is NO REASON to take away this choice from her in the first place.
“I do not agree with Senator Sotto’s position on this issue and he twisted the message of my blog to suit his own purposes against the women of the Philippines.”
Sagot pa niya kay Atty. Villacorta: “No, your lame comment does not make me 'feel' any better.”
SARAH’S NEW BLOG ENTRY. Sa pinakabagong blog entry ni Sarah, dated August 16, 2012, inihayag nito ang kanyang pagkadismaya sa pagtanggi ni Senator Sotto sa bintang na pangongopya o plagiarism.

Sa interview ay itinanggi ng senador na kinopya niya sa blog ni Sarah ang pangalawa sa huling talata ng “turno en contra” speech niya sa Senado.
Sabi pa ni Senator Sotto, “Ba’t ko naman iko-quote yung blogger? Blogger lang yun. Ang kinu-quote ko, si Natasha Campbell-McBride.”

“Nice touch Senator. You almost had me convinced you were a nice guy with tears and all. Many of your citizenry have emailed me assuring me that was a put on, and I’m starting to think they are right.”
