Paus: condooms mogen (soms)

A worker at a drugstore restock condoms for sale in Manila on November 22, 2010. Pope Benedict's endorsement of using condoms in certain cases has encouraged family planning advocates in the Philippines who are pushing for a bill that will compel government to make artificial contraceptives more available to the public. The Roman Catholic church, which counts 70 percent of Filipinos as followers, has blocked such bills in the past and has even threatened politicians who support such efforts.
