China child policy: China AXES decades-old one-child policy – what are the new rules?


People who infringed on this policy courted harsh punishment in the early days and skewed the country’s gender balance.

Last year, state media reported officials had levelled a 718,080 Yuan (£81,506) fine for a family that had seven children.

Chinese figures living in the west, such as Ma Jian, have claimed the state continued to enforce the policy through abortions and sterilisation.

Populations of males have increased to between three and four percent more than Chinese females.
