+ - China Plans End to One-Child Family Planning Policy->

Submitted by hackingbear
hackingbear (988354) writes "Pointing to China’s plummeting birth rate and numerous impending demographic imbalances in arguing that the one-child policy has outlived its usefulness, a think tank affiliated with China’s State Council issued a report saying the country should start loosening one-child restrictions in areas where controls have been strictest as a prelude to eventually doing away with child limits altogether by 2020. Chinese family planning authorities credit the one-child policy with preventing around 400 million births, but concerns over the economic implications of China’s rapidly aging population, a widening gender imbalance and growing rights consciousness have led increasing numbers of academics and regular citizens to openly question the policy, which is sometimes enforced in brutal ways. Citizens, however, express split views on this plan through online forums (in Chinese); some calling for faster termination of the policy while others argue the country still have too many people."
