    China is about to relax it's "one child" policy they implemented about two decades ago to control it's population growth rate. China is doing this to increase the number of young people in the population and the work force to offset the demands of it's rapidly aging population.

      Yes it is a good sign because there are lots of abortions happening because of one child policy. If they know that they are going to have a daughter, most women abort their babies, Like most societies China has son preference.
      Women should be given with the partners consent the right to have how many children as they want without neglecting them -- giving them quality of care.

        I agree with prettydarkhorse. People should not be penalize by fines and be forced to abort their babies because of this policy. There are less painful and less emotional ways to control population growth.

      Realy? ...but then what difference does it make? World population of we humans will increase to about 10 billion within the next 50 yrs.
      I won't be here, but if ya'r, ya think we have problems now? They will pale in comparison to those in the yr 2060.
      Doubtful tho. Human population will be reduced considerably by then.

    I hadn't heard about this but you can't blame the chinese- i think this has more to do with the rapid growth rate of all its industries and having young chinese workers to fill the positions needed.

    I think that the problem of overpopulation is overrated. The main problem in different countries are in-migration to cities, overcrowding, meaning redistribution of people brought about by job seeking, intermarriage etc.
    Population density is a better measure when it comes to problem of populations.

    In European countries and Japan, there is problem of aging of population, the resources are depleted because of high demand for old age pension and caregiving resources, like personnel and money to take care for this aging population, that is why there are incentives for couples to give birth.

    In other parts of the world, mortality rate due to infectious diseases and HIV AIDS is very high -- most in impoverished African states.

    The main thing here is that population issues should be relegated to the right of couples to bear children -- not sacrificing their quality of care -- quality of life of children and the entire family, plus the woman so that she can have time for herself as well not just give birth to as many as she wants.
