China Lifts Ban On One Child Policy

China will now allow willing couples to have two children each, not more, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported Thursday, a move that would effectively dismantle the remnants of the country’s one-child policy that had been eased in recent years.

China, now a nation of more than 1.3 billion people, instituted a policy of one child per couple to control population growth in the 1970s. When its propaganda didn’t work, local officials resorted to abortions, heavy fines and forced sterilization.

Do you think the government has a right to regulating how many children people have?
