China ends its One Child Policy

Quote:
China will “fully implement a policy of allowing each couple to have two children as an active response to an ageing population”, a statement published by Xinhua news agency on Thursday said. There were no immediate details on the new policy or a timeframe for its implementation.

. . .

The government credits it with preventing 400m births, but the human cost has been immense, with forced sterilisations and abortions, infanticide, and a dramatic gender imbalance that means millions of men will never find female partners.


Chinese parents will still be limited to two children.

China's gender ratio peaked far above the global average of 107 (men per 100 females born) in 2004 at 121.18, and fell to 115.8 in 2014.

Having girls are preferred in China. Abortion past the 1st trimester is not uncommon to ensure couples having giving birth to the sex that they desire.


I have a wife and it's not my thing, but just look on Craigslist for all the ladyboys.


When will China finally allow gay marriage?
