China's government could become more child friendly

A nation known for its two-child policy per family has removed references to family planning in a draft of sweeping civil code. Does this mean the end of birth limits?
This file picture taken on March 5, 2017 shows a child holding a national flag as he sits on the shoulders of a man after the flag raising ceremony on Tiananmen Square, before the opening of the National People's Congress in Beijing. China appears poised to scrap its two-child policy, with a state-run newspaper on Aug. 27 citing a draft civil code that would overhaul decades of controversial family planning rules.
