China To Allow Couples To Have Up To Three Children To Avert Population Crisis

Charlein Gracia

On Monday, May 31, 2021 China announced that it will allow married couples to have up to three children making the policy of two children per family to be lifted in a bid to avert demographic crisis the country faces.

This comes after a census showed it population is rapidly ageing hence the need to boost birthrate in the country.

According to the National Burau of Statistics China recorded 12 million births in 2020 despite governments efforts to encourage couples to make babies.

This alarmed the sitting President, Xi Jinping to come up with a new policy that allows couples to now have three children instead of the previous two.

“To actively respond to the ageing of the population … a couple can have three children,” Xinhua said, citing a Monday meeting of China’s elite Politburo leadership committee hosted by President Xi.

The Communist Party has enforced birth limits since 1980 to restrain population growth, and the dwindling population is partially a result of a one-child policy imposed in 1979. Couples who didn’t abide by its family planning laws faced losing their jobs and being fined. In some cases, mothers were forced to have abortions or be sterilized
