I would say many do but they don't have access or sex education so they don't always know what to ask for. The Catholic church only teaches that sex is safe on the days when you don't ovulate but they seem to have missed that ovulation can start again when you have a orgasm and that only 12% of all women ovulate on the same day every month. The pull out method is no birth control method either since 1/4 get pregnant that way. Filipino women are like most women in this world and would like to have the option of using birth control. In the rest of the world the same % of Catholic and Protestant women use birthcontrol, 98%.
