UNITED STATES: Filipino Catholics Launch Voting Campaign

The Associated Press on 8 April reported that Filipino Catholic groups launched a campaign to try to muster millions of votes for senatorial candidates who opposed a controversial contraceptives law passed last year. The Philippines has a population of 94 million and one of Asia's highest birth rates. Nearly half of all pregnancies in the Philippines are unwanted, according to the U.N. Population Fund, and a third of those end up aborted in back-alley clinics.
