    Teenage pregnancy is fought with increased access to contraception, but the Philippines is too conservative for that. If you rise the age of consent from 12 to 16, what will happen is that 14-year-olds in consensual relationships will be unable to get access to condoms or pills without outing themselves. So, teens will have no safe sex options.
