What do you think of China's one child policy? Do you think it's good or bad? Do you know a lot about it or not at all? I watched an undercover documentary on this the other night and now I'm fascinated. I've always known about the one child policy but things are so much worse than I thought. Some things I learnt: Over 70,000 children are kidnapped in China every year and sold on the black market. Due to the Chinese belief of men carrying the family name, everyone wants baby boys instead of girls. In the 30 years that the one child policy has been around there has been 40 million baby girls aborted because the parents want boys instead. Because of this there's now 40 million Chinese men growing up and finding it very difficult to find wives due to a shortage in women. In China men can't get married until they are 22, and women can't until they are 20. It's also illegal to have a child unless you first have a 'birthing permit' which you can only get if you are married. Many young couples are getting pregnant accidentally before they are married, which means that without a permit these children have no birth certificate and do not legally exist. Most of them are being sold in the black market. A lot of young boys are being kidnapped off the streets by traffickers offering sweets, as well as some parents selling their own children out of desperation. Young boys will always go for a higher price, and cute girls will go for a higher price than 'ugly' girls. Anyway that's just a bit of information off the top of my head. I was so fascinated by this. This documentary blew my mind.
