A 'social experiment' gone terribly bad, at horrific cost to women

pregnant and ChinaChina has a serious problem – and it's not just the failure of communism.

In the late 1970s, China decided to deal with its ever-increasing population by instituting a one-child policy for the majority of its citizens. Women pregnant with a second child were required to abort that child, sometimes forcibly. After several decades and the resulting economic impact, China adopted a two-child policy in 2015.

According to Reggie Littlejohn, founder and president of Women's Rights Without Frontiers, the new policy hasn't had the impact the government hoped it would have in turning around an aging population and diminishing workforce.

"Actually, they just discovered that their birth rate has plummeted 15% during 2020, so their birth rate is going down under the two-child policy," she reports – adding that "some are calling this a 'demographic cliff fall.'"

Littlejohn explains why it's happening. "They brainwashed and browbeat the Chinese people into believing that one child is what they should have, so much so that that's the standard," she tells One NewsNow.

"Another reason is that you would think that China, because it's a socialist country, would provide free health care and free education. But it does not." Resulting, she says, in making it more expensive to have and raise more than one child.

China's "barbaric social experiment," says the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, "continues to wreak social havoc." The consequences, according to the SPUC, are "appalling" and apparent more than ever: an aging population, a shrinking workforce, and a chronic gender imbalance caused by a preference for male children.
