Report: 336 million abortions under China’s one-child policy

posted at 8:41 pm on March 18, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

It’s difficult to know exactly how many abortions — voluntary or otherwise — have been performed in China to get everyone to comply with their notorious one-child policy, because a lot of this stuff occurs off the grid and under the radar — but China’s health ministry just revealed their four-decade tally of 336 million (and I’d rely on this being a very low-ball estimate):

The figure illustrates the enormous impact that the one-child policy has had on China in the four decades since it began.

Official statistics showed that in addition to the terminations, Chinese doctors have sterilised 196 million men and women since 1971. …

There are more than 13 million abortions a year, or 1,500 an hour, in China, according to government researchers, who blame the high figure on a lack of sex education.

Fewer than ten per cent of sexually active couples regularly use condoms, according to the state-run Science and Technology Research Institute. By comparison, there are roughly 11 million abortions each year in India.

Ouch. There’s been some speculation that China is considering eventually backing off of its often brutally enforced one-child policy, rumors that the Chinese regime has said are not going to see any sort of fruition any time soon — but the realities of an aging population are slowly but surely starting to materialize, and China’s might very well be looking at the mother of all demographic problems:

China is facing a critical shortage of workers caused largely by 30 years of restricting family size. Last year, the working age population of China shrank for the first time, threatening a mainland economic miracle built upon a pool of surplus labour.

Debate over the future of the policy is increasingly public, with duelling experts predicting in Chinese newspapers that it will end soon – or last for ever. …

According to the 2010 census, the number of people over 60 has risen to 13.3 per cent of the population compared with a little more than a tenth a decade ago. Children under 14 comprise less than a sixth of the population now, down from almost a quarter previously. …

But even if it is only a matter of time before the policy disappears, no one is predicting exactly when change might come. “We have been waiting for the other shoe to drop for a long time already,” says Cai Yong, a demographic expert at the University of North Carolina.

It boggles my mind that over the last 40 years, China alone has wiped out a population nearly the size of the United States and very few people truly care.

JadeNYU on March 18, 2013 at 8:47 PM

Along with gender selection and infanticide against the female babies. Good luck with those 100 million men who don’t have so much as a whispered prayer of landing a woman, ever.

Hey wait a minute, Russian men are dying young in droves leaving behind a surplus of women. The next 50 years should be a good ol’ time on that shared border.

China’s policies are harsh and brutal. But at the time I’m not sure they could have done much differently. They could not have continued growing their population at the same rate without suffering a complete societal collapse. At the time population was increasing 12% per year, which means China would have doubled its population every 6 years.

AngusMc on March 18, 2013 at 9:00 PM

It’s why people who say that China is going to rule the world are waaaaaaaaay off the mark. They can’t even rule themselves. Imagine what’s going to happen to their businesses with an aging demographic. The elderly will become the constituents, the young will be disenfranchised, turning them sour on state-run communism…it’s going to be a mess and don’t wish it upon their young, as it’s always the children who suffer the most.

It’s an issue that goes beyond just how many men there are. Sadly, many poor men probably will never have the opportunity to marry or even have dates. There’s always prostitution, I suppose. There does seem to be an encouraged attitude that if you can’t “afford” a wife, you should just reserve yourself to being single.

Regarding the gays, I’d say Chinese male adolescents seem more open to the idea. But that’s just a generalization based on certain encounters.

[B]ut the realities of an aging population are slowly but surely starting to materialize, and China’s might very well be looking at the mother of all demographic problems

What about the 40 million young men who won’t be able to find mates because of this barbaric policy? What are they going to do with all those frustrated men?

A sex ratio at birth of 105 males for every 100 females is average. There are slight differences in trends and patterns, by year, by age of mother, live birth order, and race/ethnicity of the mother. “The reason you need 105 boys—and this is perhaps a demographic universal—is because of the longevity, the survival advantage that women have,” Poston said. “So by the time they marry, there’s a balance.” The sex ratio at birth in China is 120 males per 100 females.

Poston and his colleagues produced estimates of the number of excess males by applying survival probabilities from China life tables to actual numbers of males and females born every year from 1983 through 2010. Males are survived to age 25 and females are survived to age 23 because these are typical ages for first marriage in China. The difference between the number of 25-year-old males and the number of 23-year-old females in any given year represents the number of excess males or bachelors. Poston’s research finds that between 1983 and 2010, the imbalanced sex ratio at birth in China has resulted in a surplus of 40 million males who will be unable to find appropriately aged Chinese women to marry.

There are more than 13 million abortions a year, or 1,500 an hour, in China, according to government researchers

This is in an evil, brutal, Communist oligarchy.

How many abortions per year in a supposedly free, supposedly enlightened, supposedly Christian nation with less than 1/3 the population of China?

A) 10
B) 1000
C) 10,000
D) 1000,000

Tragically, E is closest to being correct.

Murder is murder no matter where it happens….those who support these policies against the most vulnerable will pay a heavy price on the day of judgment…..

The equivalent of the entire population of the United States….gone.

If truly double, then an abortion for every White man, woman and child.

To strengthen your point, the US actually has less than 1/4 the population of China. If half of the abortions in China are forced, the voluntary abortion rate in China is actually considerably lower than that in the US.

No Abortion!

By comparison, there are roughly 11 million abortions each year in India.

The government that can compel you to give birth against your will, is the same government that can force you to have an abortion against your will.

China is the other side of the “compulsory childbirth” society anti-abortion activists would like to see established in this country. Two sides of the same coin.
