Chinese Couples Will Not Need Approval For Second Child Under Further Relaxation Of Reproductive Policy

Reuters: China says couples will not need approval to have two children
“China will not require prospective parents to obtain approval to have two children under the new ‘two-child policy,’ in what appears to be a further relaxation of reproductive controls in the world’s most populous country. … The two-child policy is itself a relaxation of the ‘one-child policy’ that led to forced abortions and infanticides for decades…” (Rose, 1/5)
