Despite Country’s Relaxed Family Planning Policy, Many Chinese Say They Will Not Have More Than One Child

Washington Post: Chinese parents can now have more than one child. Why many say they won’t.
Lauren Sandler, author of “One and Only: The Freedom of Having an Only Child, and the Joy of Being One”

“…Until recently, having another child was only hypothetical to most Chinese parents. … Permitting more than one child is surely a step toward freedom, one that will curb the forced abortions and fearful abandonments that have characterized so much of family planning in China for the past 35 years. Still, many Chinese aren’t going to rush to have more children…” (1/10).
