one child policy in chinaThe new Population and Family Planning law will allow the couple to have two children in People Republic of China. The communist nation is popular for the slogan “One child for one couple” for decades after it had been into force from 1970.

The reason behind the makeshift in the major law is because of China’s growing old age population which houses more than 400million old people over 60 years. This old age people would become hurdles for government which is now reeling under the severe financial distress. The growing social welfare and hospital expenditure bill will further restrain the nation from recovery.

The one child policy had been slightly revised in 2014 allowing couples to have second child if he or she is the only child to their parents. In the meanwhile, the Human Rights commission people are slamming the government to disown the law as it has no business to regulate how many children people have.
