Philippines Senate amends Reproductive Health bill

In an attempt to break a deadlock, the Philippines Senate has removed provisions of its version of the Reproductive Health bill that were thought to promote abortion and contraception.  President Benigno Aquino wants the bill passed because he considers it essential to his economic development programme, but the bill remains highly controversial.
