This year, China stated that they limit families to only one child. But, when this is happening, it could unlikely start a baby boom and liven up economic growth. However, the policy, cause a sex-selective abortion where pregnant women abort their child if there baby was a female because they thought that having a son could pass on their ancestral line. Even when parents had a choice to have 2 kids, parents would likely to stick to one. Thousand of people were living longer than ever before thanks to the advance technologies and the concern of the human population growth. In 1970s, Chinese leaders starts giving out policies that re related to reducing births
12% of China's population is over the age of 60, the lack of youth to help economic and social support. China's youth adults are not going start for the hoped of a baby boom because most men can't find a women to carry because of the sex-selective abortion, there are 62 million missing girls from sex-selective abortion. One-third of pregnant women started to abort their child when they learned that its a female, the same result as India. Sex selection had been connected to 1950s population controls, parents kept having China since the there have been an unbalance between gender. In 2013, a different government in China is concerned about the working age adults, couples had a permission to have second child if one of the parents are an only child. The priorities of a normal Chinese citizens had changed over a decade because of the takeup was indifferent. Even when the policy could lead into a baby boom, China's statistics could reduce since there is an imbalanced on sex ratio. Even if the sex ratio beginning to be normal, that 10% of working men still lack a female to marry with in 2050, marrying younger women would likely to help offset the gender imbalance. In 2010, Chinese had 118 boys for every 100 girls, far above average of natural sex ratio of birth. China's birth rate is so low that less young women are entering into marriage market. The lack of marriageable women had disturbing social suggestion, like the increase of sex trafficking and bride buying. In the year 2030, China could overtake Japan as the world's aging society, and lack of women for men to marry.
After reading this article, I never thought that China has problems on to what gender they are giving birth to and it surprises me that China has also a problem regarding to sex-selective abortion. It is really painful for me to read this article because many pregnant women in China is aborting their child if it was a female. And later on, there will be consequences since there are less female than male to marry. Since China has most populated country in Asia, there will be likely to have a one child policy, and I was wondering to how the parents are feeling when they aborted their child. I hope that China will find a solution to this problem that more males than females and the parents could have their children to whatever the gender is
