Someone that is more polished should have pointed out the fallibility of condoms and suggested they be combined with another birth control method. Encouraging a health crisis epidemic in order to lower birth rate is not exactly the way to move forward. I don't know how you can even entertain defending such an outrageous statement. It's almost as bad as his rape joke.
I don't see that it is encouraging a health crisis when condom use is very low anyway, though it has I guess increased with his government giving out free condoms. Yes it should have been worded better and condom use not discouraged but of all the issues facing the government at the moment I don't see this as a major one.
By the way did you know after years of being big importers of rice the Philippines became self sufficient in 2017? Record crop due to big improvements made. Food security and feeding everyone is quite important.
This is relevant. These implants, provided free to the poor, are the major push from the government. A recent survey found poor women would like 3 children, the average poor woman has 10 kids. There are by my reckoning 8 million poor women x 7 unwanted kids = 56 million unwanted kids. Many of these will go hungry. This will destroy the country which is why it is one of the government's top priorities.
It could be a tactical call. I imagine their skin would be very tough and leathery after years of hiking in the Asian sun...the rebels I mean. Who did you think I meant?
The first face in the audience you see in the video is the Chinese Ambassador.
