Public policy researcher Wang Feng slammed the One-Child Policy at an academic conference in Beijing last month. Wang, who works for the Brookings Tsinghua Center for Public Policy Research, delivered his bold criticism in an interview with Chinese media outlet Sohu Finance.
“I believe history will judge the One-Child Policy as worse than the Cultural Revolution,” Wang said. “The Cultural Revolution only hurt Chinese people for a short time, but the One-Child Policy will influence more than one generation. We have only seen the beginning.”
The US State Department this past week released its yearly, “Trafficking in Persons Report.” China received an automatic downgrade to the lowest ranking, Tier 3, for being a destination country for sex-trafficking.
The State Department acknowledged the one-child policy as the “key source of demand” for sex-trafficking and forced prostitution within the country, but remained silent regarding the abolition of the harmful policy in its list of policy recommendations for China.
A senior government official in Myanmar expressed support on Tuesday for a Two-Child Policy for the Muslim Rohingya minority. First implemented in 2005, the policy aims to control the Muslim population in Myanmar’s Rakhine State.
“This will benefit the [Rohingya] women,” said Khin Yi, Myanmar’s Minister of Immigration and Population, in an interview with Reuters. “Almost all of the [Rohingya] women are very poor, uneducated. It is not easy to take care of the children. The Two-Child Policy or Three-Child Policy is enough for these people.”
Recent reports from China show coercion in China’s infamous one-child policy is once again on the rise. Women in the southern city of Huizhou are being targeted for sterilization. Those who have one child are being forced to wear IUDs. Those who have two children are subject to tubal ligation. Those who bear an “illegal” child are being denied all government services. This means life without access to schools, hospitals, retirement benefits, etc.

Spanish-language network Univision will interview President Obama about his immigration pander plan tomorrow. We assume the anchors will pose as objective, neutral questioners. But the above tweet from the network reveals a rather biased, and rather shallow, perspective on the topic.
So most of us came from somewhere else.
