CHINA – SOUTH KOREA
Aborted foetuses from China turned into medications
The South Korean press makes the accusations. Hospitals in China’s Jilin province use human remains to make capsules sold in South Korea where they are used for incurable diseases. Seoul and Beijing launch investigations, but such an aberration stems from China’s one-child policy and the violence perpetrated by its Communist regime in the name of family planning.
Beijing "will not change family planning policy"
Zhang Weiqing, director of the National Population and Family Planning Commission, defended the "one-child policy", saying: "The problem is not the law; this has led to the prevention of 400 million births".
Party officials’ careers in jeopardy if they have more than one child
Communist Party officials in Henan have called for orthodox observance of government family planning policies. They warn that party officials who violate the ‘one-child’ policy will not be promoted. However, 30 years of forced population controls have had serious repercussions on Chinese society.
China’s one child policy won’t change despite causing skewed male/female ratio
Official data are in and point to the policy’s failure. Only one Chinese in three respects it, and the rich can always “buy” the right to have more children. Government will keep restrictions in place till 2010 but says it might drop them later.
Chinese government stealing children, demanding ransom for return
Farmers accuse family planning officials of taking away children born outside the 'one child policy' and demanding payment to return them. Victims are baby girls who are sent to unknown orphanages.
Beijing, more than 30 thousand families ask to have a second child
After the relaxation of the infamous one-child law, passed in 2013, the capital has seen a surge of requests. The numbers, analysts said, "are still low but will grow." By the end of 2015 China will touch 1.38 billion inhabitants.
