The Philippines' highest court suspended a controversial birth control law that had met fierce opposition from the powerful Catholic Church. Voting 10-5, the Supreme Court issued a four-month freeze against the law, which requires government health centres to hand out free condoms and schools to teach sex education, court spokesman Theodore Te said.
