China’s Low Birth Rates Create Demographic Issues — Abortion Clinics Shutting Down

Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.8

China, the world’s most populous nation, is shutting down abortion clinics and ramping up government services to help couples conceive. After decades of Communist China’s one-child policy and strict enforcement of population control by means of abortion, China faces a demographic imbalance that could carry social and political consequences. A survey completed by researchers at Peking University indicates that China has a higher infertility rate than other nations because multiple abortions increase infertility.
