An Evaluation of 30 Years of the One-Child Policy in China

2318 Rayburn House Office Building
This year marks the 30-year anniversary of China's one-child-per-couple policy, which in some cases results in forced abortion or sterilization. The State Department's 2008 Human Rights report states that "[China's] population control policy relied on education, propaganda, and economic incentives, as well as on more coercive measures." The one-child policy has broader societal implications resulting in a disproportionate number of males per females born in China each year due to sex-selective abortions.
