After slaughtering millions, China joins world's population problem

Chinese Red Guards (B&W)China has a population problem of its own making that will grow worse as time marches on.

After butchering millions of its own people during the Cultural Revolution, China then continued its sordid history by reducing its swelling population with a “one-child policy” that increased to two in 2016. 

But it may be too late for the world's most populous nation.  

Allen Baldanza of the Population Research Institute tells OneNewsNow that China lost 25 million people from its workforce during a five-year period, from 2012 to 2017.

“That's larger than the population of Australia,” he tells OneNewsNow.

Moreover, since there's a preference for male children, there are 34 million more men than women, and women from countries such as North Korea and Pakistan are being trafficked into China.

By the middle of the century, Reuters reported earlier this year, China is expected to lose 200 million people for its workforce, which means loosening the one-child rule happened too late for a country with falling birth rates.  

“The Chinese Communist Party is guilty of the biggest crimes against humanity of any other government in human history,” Baldanza says. “You're talking 400 million innocent unborn children were murdered by the one-child policy.”

China’s women have been forcibly sterilized in an authoritarian environment that forces them to report for pregnancy checks and undergo forced abortions.
