China to abolish one-child policy

Communist Party to allow all couples to have two children, says state media

Beijing: China's ruling Communist Party has decided to abolish the country's one-child policy and allow all couples to have two children, says the official Xinhua News Agency.
The country has been moving in recent years toward easing restrictions that were introduced in 1980 as a way to curb the population and limit demands for water and other resources.
The decision announced Thursday removes all remaining restrictions that limited some couples to having only one child.
