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.
