On the day her first-ever solo album Schizophonic was released in the U.S., the Roman Catholic Church in Manila, Philippines, denounced former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell Tuesday for promoting the use of birth control as the U.N. Population Fund's goodwill ambassador, the Associated Press reported. Halliwell chose to visit the predominantly Catholic country specifically to target the church's stance on contraceptives. The pop singer had visited a suburban Manila high school Monday that is organizing a sexual-health education program with Marie Stopes International, an independent group that promotes contraceptive use.
