Islands in Population Trouble Despite Birth Control Plan
Bv Arnold Zeltlin
MAMBA. The Philippines (AP) — Despite five years of a model birth control program. Philippine* women seem to fie having more babies than ever
The fecundity of the Philippine woman is rising, according to the preliminary figures of a survey reported bv Dr Mercedes Concepcion, tin* country’s most eminent demographer and director of the University of the Philippines institute of population
“We seem to have hod some success in encouraging women to marry later in life.” said Dr Concepcion, “but they seem to respond to this by having more babies ”
According to the figures. which Dr Concepcion and other family planners emphasized were preliminary the Philippine woman has about eight children in a lifetime. A similar survey in 19HK showed her with six children
Dr Concepcion conceded the new set of figures reflect more accurate survey work But, she added
“We thought that if the figure did not decline, at least it would remain the same."
Dr Concepcion's memorandum on the survey has provoked deep soul-searching among family planners here It has also illustrated the difficulties even model birth control programs face in the developing world’s struggle against rising population

“We’ve had about one million acceptors.” said Dr Conrado Lorenzo, head of the government’s commission on population iii a reference to the Filipinos who have said they were practicing family planning. “It seems that something has to lie happening
“Even if we assume that it is true fertility is rising. I am comfortable that we have the right approach. It only means we haven’t done enough
Population here. thought to grow by at ie ast 3.01 percent a year. passed the 411 million mark last year. Demographers predict that, if growth is unchecked, this poor country with an annual per capita income of $240 will be trying to support 90 million by the end of the century
The birth control program is well supported I S Agency for International Development (AID) provides more money for Philippines population control than for any similar program in the world Dr Lorenzo estimates B S assistance this year at $8 million to $7 million The Philippines estimates it will spend a total of more than $13 million, including B S help
The government has backed tin* program Puebla R Marcos, wife of President Ferdinand E Marcos, personally solicited a SI million private contribution for the $2 million new headquarters for Dr Lorenzo’s commission on population
Even the Roman Catholic Church, to which H5 percent of Philippines claim to belong, has cooperated as long as the government included the rhythm method of birth control iii its “cafeteria’ policy of offering families a voluntary choice of all methods of birth prevention
Stung by the inclusion of
sterilization in a presidential decree on family planning, the Church is showing signs of mounting its greatest opposition in years to the program In a pastoral letter, the Church’s bishops have ordered Catholic medical personnel to refuse to participate in direct abortion or contraceptive sterilization
"We are worried, said the bishops, “about the current massive campaign to talk couples into accepting a number of mechanical and chemical contraceptives
The Church claims the Philippines is on its way to enforced sterilization as a population control measure. Dr Lorenzo. Dr Concepcion and Information Secretary Francisco S. Tatad met Church leaders at the end of February to assure them no coercion was intended Bul Church officials point out the growing emphasis on such procedures as vasectomy in family planning publicity
In the meantime, social scientists, such as Prof Gelia Castillo, who works among rice farmers from her post at the University of the Philippines in Bos Banos, believe most parents set* children as a form of old age insurance The more children they have, the greater their chances of being comfortable in old age.
