China Ends Its One-Child Policy [VIDEO]

Beijing has decided to end its 35-year-old policy of restricting couples to one child. Because of China’s aging populace, the ruling Communist Party will reportedly now allow families to have two children, expanding upon a limited birth-rate set in 1979 in reaction to booming population growth. The law has been controversial largely for its punishment of couples who violated it, from monetary fines to forced abortions.
