In China, some find ways to beat one-child policy

In China, some find ways to beat one-child policy | Population Control | Scoop.it
Something isn't quite right with this picture. There seem to be too many children here. Isn't this the country famed for its one-child policy? Aren't there big fines and penalties for having that second child?

this video shows how families in China are finding loop holes in the population laws. It is known that China is an over populated country, although you are allowed to have children. the law of the land is if you are rich you are able to have two children and if you are poor you are only allowed to have one child. The citizens of China have found loop holes like registering some of their children as twins and also paying people to fabricate other paper work

i like this story because it shows that not all people agree with the one child every household law.  It all shows that people are willing to pay fines up to 20,000 dollars to have more than one child.  In this story this man had lost his job and a hefty fine just to have a second child.

Many in China Can Now Have a Second Child, but Say No | Population Control | Scoop.it

This article is saying that the rich or those in power use population control as a tool to keep their wealth and the reign of power. They figure if they can control the birthrate of the country or monitor the population within a country they can still remain in control.
