China's 1 Child Policy
China increasing the male population
To increase China's male population, China wants women to only be able to have 1 girl. China's population laws are threatening baby girls and favoring baby boys. China wants a bigger male population so they only allow women to have one girl. In some cases officials would force pregnant women to have abortions. Others would take sledgehammers to towns and threaten families if they didn't pay their fines for having children.
Chen Guangchen need to escape
When someone decided to speak out about China's forcing women into abortions they had imprisoned. Chen Guangchen was a lawyer who was thrown into jail after wanting to help the women forced to have abortions. "I come out of a small jail and entered a bigger one," and "I can be jailed again at any time, it is very easy. They can say that I am a criminal and just lock me up" stated Guangchen. Chen Guangchen after being thrown in jail was released and then was under house arrest.
Now, families are able to have two legally children. IUD, sterilization, and abortions are China's most known type of birth control. Women being forced to have abortions or families forced to pay fines to have children need help. They are in danger of China's authorities.
