China’s one child policy was established by Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping in 1979 to limit communist China’s population growth. Although designated a “temporary measure,” it continues a quarter-century after its establishment. The policy limits couples to one child. Fines, pressures to abort a pregnancy, and even forced sterilization accompanied second or subsequent pregnancies.
China had proclaimed that it would continue its one child policy, which limited couples to having one child, through the 2006-2010 five year planning period. However, as of February 2011, this policy continues.
China’s population growth has slowed down recently, mostly due to their one child policy. However, it IS still growing, especially due to increased standards of medical care. China has about 1.3 billion people and is expected to have 1.4 billion by the end of the decade.
