Filipino women celebrate as Philippine legislators pass a landmark law that would provide government funding for contraceptives and sexuality classes at the Philippine Congress in suburban Quezon City, north of Manila, Philippines on Monday, Dec. 17, 2012. Philippine legislators passed the law despite strong opposition by the dominant Roman Catholic Church and its followers, some of whom threatened to ask the Supreme Court to thrash the legislation.
