I have seen and heard the most dreadful cases on this,
Esp with the need to produce Boy's over girls, and people disposing of baby girls...even when born healthy.
I believe they have it totally wrong from all angles.
They need to find a better solution...than the 'consequences' that are given to people, 'if' they have a female baby, or a second baby.
Aborting babies at the 8 month stage is devastating to the Mother.
People in the western world are horrified at China, and with good reason!
Birth and death seems to even things out so far. Those countries like China that try to have population controls usually have a population deficit at some point and end up basically "importing" people to fill the gap.
I believe there has to be some kind of population control. We are quickly over-populating our planet and we do not treat it in a way that will allow the earth to survive as our population grows. Admittedly, this is really only one part of a much larger problem but it is still a part that we, as a species, needs to examine.
