Reasons To Abolish The One Child Policy In China

Good Essays
Having a brother or sister could not only provide a company for a person but can also accelerate the progress of becoming mature. Having several children in a family seems to be normal in many countries. According to the one child policy, some serious problems like a skewed abolishment and gender ratio are still happening in currently China’s society. However, in China there are specific laws to forbid that from happening called one child policy. It only allows each family to have no more than one child. According to my perspective, I strongly believe that the government should abolish the one child policy. First of all, why does the one child policy exist? China’s population is about 1.4 billion people, the largest number of a nation’s population in the world. Due to the …show more content…
The SRB, which stands for The Sex Ratio at Birth, an organization, claimed that the ratio of males and females has risen over the past few decades. The ratio was 107(boys) to 102(girls) in 1996; however, in 2007, the number came to 125 boys over 101 girls. Until recently, the ratio was becoming 112 boys to 104 girls; the population of females almost stays the same within a decade (Susan. #par.11#)! Owing to one child policy, the abortion ratio in China is increasing. A firm called Gesellschaft Für Konsumforschung showed an annual investigation that more than 13 million of Chinese females have had an abortion (Li, #par.12#). Maybe you don’t know that more than 53 percent of females had an abortion more than twice (Li, #par.12#). For example, the Chinese males would be unable to find spouse in the future. Which will be increasingly difficult for Chinese male to get married currently, and it seems unlikely to improve. By 2020, it is predicted that there will be 49 million or even more males than females, which means many males could not build a normal family (Kevin,

    However this is not completely true. There are more kids being put up for adoption than actually being adopted. In 2009, 12,000 children were left without permanent homes because of this.

    The Chinese government has decided that couples are allowed two children per household. This is a drastic change from the old one-child policy, implemented after the rule of Mao Zedong. Since the population is 1.3 billion, we should not expect to see a lot of changes. Steven Jiang, a sociologist, said that the policy will affect 100 million couples and it is likely that twenty-three million more births will occur under the new policy. Although China has allowed people to have more choices in their lives, the one-child policy will not help many people.…

    Since the one child policy being enacted, the desire for boys in Chinese families has increased tremendously. It seems that even lawfully allowing more children, families seem to not want more children or only want the boys. The disparity between males and females in China is greatly climbing each year. Soon men will outnumber women by millions upon millions, and many men will be left without partners while many women will be at risk for the abuses that come along with lack of females within a society. This…

    Also According to All Girls Allowed (2013), “The One-Child Policy restricts the majority of Chinese families to one child each. The consequences of having a child without a birth permit vary by province, with fines reaching as high as several times the average annual income”. The one-child policy was extremely effective, in fact, it was believed by leaders that restricting births could lead to economic gain. Also According to All Girls Allowed (2013), “The One-Child Policy has prevented over 400 million births”, therefore it is extremely beneficial. China chose the one-child policy for economic reasons, but think if the entire U.S proposed this system for the benefit of the biosphere.…

    As a result, there was a dramatic decline in live births over the next 30 years. A large “son preference” arose, leading to an unbalanced ratio of males to female.
