and the Church keeps insisting contraception is wrong. 

My only surprise about the statistic quoted is “it’s that low?!”

Mind you, who’s to say that all births are properly recorded 😄

This survey from PSA shows that 54% use some sort of birth control.

More than half of married women age 15-49 use a method of family planning – 40% use a modern method and 14% use a traditional method.

25,074 women were interviewed. How many births do you think were not recorded properly and how much would that affect their report?

I wonder what type of method they consider the rhythm method to be, traditional or modern

Our helper got herself a bf. I gave her a peso and told her that would keep her from getting pregnant. She asked how?  I told her to hold it between her knees 

 Is that traditional or modern?

In 2011, 48% of married women used some type of contraceptive. In 2017, they're claiming 54%. What about the unmarried women?   

Rhythm is traditional. Here is how they define modern and traditional:
