#Hashtag: China decides to end one-child policy


According to BBC News, it has been reported by Xinhua, China’s state-operated news agency, that China is to end its one-child policy, allowing couples the option to have up to two children.

The one-child policy, which was nationally applied in 1979 to delay population growth, has been estimated to have averted approximately 400 million births.

Twitter users shared their opinions on China’s decision.
