China is not only ending their anti-natal policies but embracing pro-natal policies as it appears to have dawned on them that they can easily take over the planet demographically due to Western nations' suicidal open borders policies.
Families in China can now have as many children as they like without facing fines or other consequences, the Chinese government said late Tuesday.
The announcement ended, in practice, decades of restrictions on the number of children each household could have, as authorities attempt to encourage births in the face of a rapidly aging population. Births dropped 15% last year, a fourth-straight year of decline.
China began loosening its strict one-child policy about six years ago after imposing it in the 1980s.
That meant for more than three decades, local authorities seeking to meet population targets often took harsh measures such as forced abortions and sterilization. Families’ preference for boys, especially in rural, farming areas, resulted in a large gender imbalance.
Families violating the one-child, and later two-child, policy faced hefty fines and difficulty finding a job. As recently as last year, state media reported local authorities fined a family 718,080 yuan ($112,200) for having seven children.
What has changed since the 1980s?
Besides China seeing explosive economic growth, the West threw open their borders.
Whereas in the past China would have to take care of their own citizens, these days excess population can simply be sent to America, Europe, New Zealand, Australia, etc. and be wildly successful.
It's the "deal of the century" and they're happy to take advantage of it.
-- By 2025, China will basically establish a policy system that actively supports births with better services and lower costs in childbearing, care and education.
-- The country will scrap fines for couples who violate the family planning law to have more children than they are allowed.
-- To legitimize the three-child policy, China will revise the law on population and family planning.
-- A key task in implementing the three-child policy is to improve support measures and relieve families of their worries to unleash the childbirth potential, official said.
BEIJING, July 20 (Xinhua) -- China on Tuesday released a decision allowing a couple to have three children and rolling out a slew of support measures, ranging from tax breaks to more nurseries and flexible work leave to encourage births.
The decision on improving birth policies to promote long-term and balanced population development, dated June 26, 2021, was adopted by the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council.
China has been adjusting its one-child family planning policy over the past decade. The two-child policy was partially introduced in 2013 and fully implemented in 2015. According to the latest population census, this policy shift has resulted in the births of over 10 million more second children in the country.
Observers said the new policy mix would help ease the burden -- both physical and financial -- on young adults at childbearing age, contributing to sustaining a long-term and balanced population growth.
"It is of great significance to implement the three-child policy and supporting measures in China to further adapt to the new changes in the population structure and the requirements for high-quality development," the decision said.
The three-child policy and supporting measures will be conducive to improving China's demographic structure and implementing the national strategy of actively responding to population aging, it said.
According to the decision, by 2025, China will basically establish a policy system that actively supports births with better services and lower costs in childbearing, care and education. The gender ratio of newborns will be more balanced and the population structure will be improved.
By 2035, the country will further improve its policies and regulations securing the stable long-term population development, as well as its population structure, said the decision.
To legitimize the three-child policy, China will revise the law on population and family planning, the document revealed.
The government will no longer charge a fine for couples who violate the family planning law to have more children than they are allowed, the document said.
"The main purpose for implementing the three-child policy and supporting measures is to help achieve an appropriate fertility rate and promote long-term and balanced population development. It represents a fundamental change from previous goals of birth policies, such as curbing the excessively rapid population growth," said Yang Wenzhuang, an official with the National Health Commission.
Universal restrictive measures and fines in the country are no longer necessary, Yang said.
How many children an individual has will no longer be a reference when he or she registers for a household account, enrolls in school, and applies for a job, the document said.
The country will improve the public services related to family planning, particularly for children's upbringing, care of the elderly, and enhance demographic surveillance and forecasts.
The State Council has already submitted a bill to the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, the top legislature. It proposes including the three-child policy in the law on population and family planning, Yang said.
The legislature will review the bill and make a decision on revising the law.
Since the two-child policy, people's inclination to produce offspring has undergone significant changes, Yang noted.
A key task in implementing the three-child policy is to improve supporting measures and relieve families of their worries to unleash the childbirth potential, Yang said.
After the two-child system, many families who wanted to have a second child may still hesitate due to various reasons. They include the economic burden, the difficulty in looking after a new baby, and the predicament of women to balance family and career, Yang added.
China will ensure the health of pregnant, lying-in women and children, tighten supervision of human-assisted reproductive technology and related applications, and adopt comprehensive measures to prevent birth defects, the decision said.
The decision proposed measures to provide affordable nursing services and reduce the cost of births and the care and education of children, such as allowing tax deductions for expenses on children under three.
China will also continue to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of families with only one child, according to the decision.
The country will continue to implement its current reward and assistance system and preferential policies for families with only one child and rural families with only two daughters born before the two-child policy, it said.
Efforts will also explore setting up a leave system for children from one-child families to care for their parents.
They're copying the sane policies Western nations used to have to massive success.
According to our overlords, we mustn't pursue such policies today lest we produce "more white Christians."
So the economic case for pro-natalism is really weak — so you're left with some kind of "family values" argument (I mean, look at how fatherhood has mellowed and matured Donald Trump) or, not-so-hidden subtext, the need for more white Christians ... 10/
"In Europe and America, the birth rate of whites has fallen very seriously," Ambassador Yongchen said. "Is this the result of the genocide policy pursued by their leaders?"
He continued: "The Uyghur population in Xinjiang has exploded, but the Chinese govt has been accused of committing genocide by conspirators. Nosense! [sic]"
According to White House occupant Joe Biden, white people becoming a minority in America is "a source of our strength."
While speaking at a White House Summit in early 2015, Biden brought up how America is being flooded with an "unrelenting" "wave" of immigrants, which he said we should be "proud of."
NEW: We have another massive group of 250 illegal immigrants who are being let through the border fence in Del Rio, TX to be taken into BP custody. They are from all around the world. Mostly Haitians. Some from Africa. One man from India. Several pregnant women. @FoxNewspic.twitter.com/mPa67VaK8m
"It's not going to stop," Biden said. "Nor should we want it to stop. As a matter of fact, it's one of the things I think we can be most proud of."
NEW: Our FOX drone team in the Rio Grande Valley shot this video of Border Patrol dropping off bus loads of migrants at McAllen Central Bus Station where they are given bus tickets to travel out of town after they are processed & released from custody w/ NTA’s. @FoxNewspic.twitter.com/xbsvrRKwid
"An unrelenting stream of immigration," Biden continued. "Nonstop, nonstop. Folks like me who are Caucasian, of European descent, for the first time in 2017 [sic] we'll be an absolute minority in the United States of America. Absolute minority. Fewer than 50% of the people in America from then and on will be white European stock. That's not a bad thing. That's a source of our strength."
NEW: An absolutely massive group of 350+ migrants have arrived at the border fence here in Del Rio. They are from all around the world. Haiti. Africa. Brazil. Colombia. Very few from Northern Triangle. More are streaming down the path from the Rio Grande after crossing. @FoxNewspic.twitter.com/Cd4eHr7zCe
Another journalist here asked this migrant what she thinks about President Biden. She responded “Gracias al Presidente Biden por la oportunidad de venir aqui ahora.” (Thanks to President Biden for the opportunity to come here now.) Some tell us now is the time to come. @FoxNewspic.twitter.com/a4yAJ2BAdN
