PSIP Description: 
The effects of the population explosion and staggering birth rate in Philippines are examined.
Long Description: 
On Sunday, amid the country's population explosion, NewsHour Weekend returns to the Philippines to examine the effects of its staggering birth rate, caused partly by little or no access to contraception or family planning advice. NewsHour Special Correspondent Mark Litke follows mothers and newborns from one of the busiest maternity wards in the world to the overcrowded slums where families live in poverty. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.
