The posters shrugging off China's 330 abortions are ignoring that many of these abortions were forced and late term and that the vast majority of them were of female fetuses. The practice is also controversial to many Chinese who have pointed out that other countries have controlled their population without resorting to mass abortion.

So many people on earth who can't have babies, and there just killing them so they won't be crowded?

Certainly beats having wars to control the population

Population control is needed world wide. China is not perfect but they try to keep it sustanable

Anonymous at 15:24 says China does not have enough females? 500 million isn't enough?

Ben, abortion is NOT killing babies. An unborn is just that until it is given birth to.

This deeply saddens me. So many lives lost before they even got to experience anything.

I think China earned a carbon credit. Because of the abortion policy, they should be allowed to burn all the fossil fuel they want.

China are on brink of a population disaster if they do not stop this. They have not enough females.

resist the NWO!

If China did not do this, they would have a demographic disaster. Many more people there would be in much worse shape with less resources to go around. I have nothing against this policy.
And shut up about "Human rights!"
