Fwd: China from reverses from requiring abortions to restricting them

China has a demographic problem due to its former one-child policy.  The high ratio of old people to productive workers is going to be a big problem.  Other countries like the United States also have this problem, but not as bad.

Monday, the Chinese State Council issued new guidelines governing non-medical abortions to try to slow down an increase in procedures to terminate pregnancies—effectively forcing women to keep unwanted pregnancies except under certain circumstances.

Between 2014 and 2018, Chinese doctors performed an average of 9.7 million abortions a year, according to the country's National Health Commission. That's an increase of 51 percent over the previous five years before the relaxation of China's one-child rule governing family size in 2015.
