Chinese Party-State’s offer to remove the IUDs it forcibly implanted in women is too little and comes too late for those who have already lost their children, their health and, in some cases, their very lives.

Decades of stringently enforced population control policies have caused China’s birth rate to plummet. The result: rapid aging of the population and a shrinking pool of working-age adults.
The Chinese Communist Party has decided to increase the birth rate. Last year it relaxed the one-child policy. Chinese couples were told that they were now allowed to have two children.
There is only one problem with Beijing’s move to increase China’s anemic birth rate.
