China’s long standing family planning laws could soon be ended under new laws that will be introduced by the state.
Although China originally had the one child policy law it was recently changed to two children back in 2016.
The long standing law which was introduced back in 1979 could soon be eradicated under a new civil draft code.
According to the Procuratorate Daily, the new civil code those not include provisions in regards to family planning meaning that that the current laws would no longer exist.
It is thought that the Chinese Government is looking to relax the laws which were first introduced to slow population growth, in order to address its growing problem of a shrinking workforce.
Chinese officials are also growing concerned about the greater gender imbalance which could potentially cause future problems.
The controversial one/two child policy law has caused immense issues and distress amongst Chinese families in the past as women have been forced to undertake unwanted abortion ans sterilisation procedures in order to avoid facing harsh punishment.
