    A Thai veterinarian prepares male macaque monkeys before their vasectomy procedures in the town of Lopburi, 155 km (96 miles) north of Bangkok, August 19, 2009. Thailand started a birth control programme to sterilise male monkeys with the aim of controlling their population in the famous monkey town of Lopburi. The programme took place after many villagers complained about the increasing numbers of monkeys and their aggressive attacks on people. Picture taken August 19, 2009.

    A newborn baby sleeps beside a prayer booklet inside a ward of a government hospital in Manila July 23, 2008. An estimated 50 to 60 deliveries occur daily at a government hospital in Manila, forcing staff to discharge new mothers as early as 12 to 24 hours after birth. In the face of a burgeoning population growth rate, women's rights groups and members of the Philippine Congress are currently pushing for reproductive health and birth control legislation, but strong opposition remains in the form of the influential and staunchly traditional Catholic Church.
