Contraception is still tabu
The more years pass by the more children are still being born in the Philippines, despite extremely difficult daily life situations. One reason for the ever growing population size: contraception is still a tabu-topic, according to the Council for the Welfare of Children in Quezon City. The last Administration tried to push the so called reproductic health law through - so far without success. Sexuell education, including the proper use of contraceptives, should have been part of this progressive law.
