Too Much of a “Good” Thing

Seems like China’s effort to limit their population growth has worked all too well. Now, China is actually concerned about the number of abortions performed in their country.

Straight from BBC News:

“China began restricting the number of children each couple can have in 1978. Officials say this has prevented 400 million extra births.

In many cases women are restricted to just one child, although in rural areas some couples can have two children if the first is a girl.

These rules mean abortions are used in some places to ensure the population growth is kept low.

Some women even complain that they are pressured into terminating their pregnancies.”
