*Abstract*

Religion is central to the lives of billions, a guiding force that
influences not only individual spiritual belief, but public policy as well.
With the Catholic bishops having concluded the Extraordinary Synod on the
Family at the Vatican last October, Pulitzer Center senior editor Tom
Hundley and Filipina journalist Ana Santos look at how the Catholic Church
and the Media -- both local and international -- have defined the policy
debate on gender issues in the Philippines including family planning,
divorce, transnational families, and the global issue of abortion.
