Single women in China are not allowed to give birth, reports humanitarian organization All Girls Allowed at a Congressional hearing Thursday, Sept. 22.
The One-Child Policy has “prevented” more than 400 million lives since its start in 1980, and was supposed to end last September. This anniversary is a surprise for some.
“We must remember that the policy is One-Child-Per-Couple,” says Chai Ling, founder of All Girls Allowed. “No marriage certificate, no birth permit. No birth permit, no baby.”
