外文标题：China to loosen one-child policy, end labour camps
BEIJING (Reuters) - China will ease its family planning policies and abolish a controversial labour camp system, according to a key document issued after a ruling Communist Party meeting, the official Xinhua news agency said on Friday.
Couples will be allowed to have two children if one of the parents is an only child, as part of an adjustment of the birth policy to promote "long-term balanced development of the population in China", it said.
Previously, a couple could only generally have a second child if both parents were only children.
The reform package will also see China abolish the labour camp system, which it calls re-education through labour, and reduce the number of crimes subject to the death penalty "step by step", Xinhua added.
Global food supply priority in china. Huh!

China IS the world's most populous country ... has been for a long time.
Followed by India and the United States.

China HAS TAKEN POSITVE ACTION to reduce the size of their population.
India and America continue to breed like RATS!!!!
They STILL have defacto SLAVE LABOR, in their factories, and on farms.
China has made an entire profit generating engine off of the forced labor camp system. I commend them for abolishing it but everyone should take a hard look at the abuses and conflict of interest that occur in a justice system that profits of of inmate populations. Including us in the USA.
The labor camps when ran correctly are a great idea. It forces inmates to work off their debt and allows them to contribute to society. When ran correctly, these camps can give valuable training, and help reintroduce criminals back into society with better outcomes.
Personally though, I don't have enough information on how China ran their camps.
So now they'll have two boys instead of one! Way to repair that gender disparity!
Wow! They're loosening things up, increasing personal liberties, while here, we're becoming more like thy were, becoming more of a police state. Look which society is thriving. Coincidence?

Chinese are MORE LITERATE than Americans.
Chinese have MORE MODERN CITIES, AIRPORTS, PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, CELL PHONES, RENEW ABLE ENERGY, and a STRONGER ECONOMY.
The differences are WIDENING!!!!
Thank the Republicans, and their determination to bring America BACK to the 1830's for this.

What is going to happen to all of Mitt Romney's factories if the Chinese end all his Labor Camps?
If the Chinese politicians aren't lying...and that is IF...then this is a big embarassment to Americans. While China gradually moves towards a property owning freer society, America continues it's lemming-like rush towards becoming the next U.S.S.R. Wake up people of the U.S.A. Our politicians do not serve us at all.
Chinese need to start making more pretty Chinese women to send to America. America has a attractive woman shortage.
How about you just move to China...problem solved.
So they can be a streetwalker?
No woman needs a man. Only a sperm donor and a vibrator.
The US needs re education hard labor camps for Political Corruptors and the Wall Street Banksters that they protect !
If China is getting better maybe we could send Obama over there to screw it up
It is a step in the right direction...But they have a long way to go.
there is more to come. Corrupted officials will be allowed to have multiple wives or concubines, just like the old days. HAHAHA
Always wondered what happened when a woman birthed triplets ??
soon we will have to go to China to seek freedom!
