Interesting turn of events...

(CNN)It's official. From January 1, 2016 China will allow two children for every couple. Chinese lawmakers rubber-stamped the new legislation Sunday during a session of the National People's Congress Standing Committee, which governs the country's laws, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

"The state advocates that one couple shall be allowed to have two children," according to the newly revised Law on Population and Family Planning.

With China's logic of needing/wanting a younger and larger workforce for their still growing economy the added child act/law might be good news to some families who have wanted to have two kids. When reading some of the reports that some couples were forced to have abortions and or fined large monetary sums I couldn't believe that this kind of legislation existed. Like Japan's population China is finding themselves having trouble with some of their food sources. I'm going to give this a place on the back burner and se where things are in about six months - both food supply and the added child act.
