The one-child policy came into effect in 1979 in an attempt to stabilize the country's population. Now, a generation later, the policy has caused sex-selective abortion and infanticide within the country on a gargantuan scale. Due to the policy, there are currently 37,000,000 more males than females in China -- that's about the entire population of California.
The State Department reported that women and girls are currently being trafficked into China from the neighboring countries of Burma and Vietnam. However, Vietnam also has an imbalanced sex-ratio due to sex-selective abortions, and Burma has just imposed a two-child policy on it's Rohingya population. If current trends continue, sex-trafficking in the region will only deteriorate.
US President, Barack Obama, now has 45-90 days to decide on a course of action for the offending countries -- including invoking sanctions against China.
The State Department needs to recommend that China revoke the one-child policy. Repealing the policy will not heal the wounds already inflicted upon China, nor restore the innocence of the trafficked girls, but revoking the policy will stop the spread of the demographic disease which currently ravages China and its neighbors.
