After more than 30 years and millions of forced sterilizations, infanticide, and marital misery, China announced this week that it would end its one-child policy—easily the country's most unpopular rule.

Hi Gérard 
I have read that this law led to a lot of girl foetus abortions and even infanticides and that by 2020, there will be between 30 million and 35 million more Chinese men of marrying age than women....It was morally and legally monstrous !

China's government ended a one-child limit, but it already encouraged millions of abortions of females, causing lasting damage.
