Since when is it any of our damn business what China does? How would you like it if China interfered with our government or "family planning?" Clean up your own mess before you start condemning others

I don't believe abortion is moral, and to me it doesn't matter if that abortion takes place in the U.S. or China. However, abortion is legal in both the U.S. and China, and as long as that is the case then we really don't have any right to take a moral stance on how China addresses its "family planning". I'm betting that from the Chinese point of view they are the ones who are moral and ethical. They are addressing the problem of a global population boom while we are not.

A Chinese couple who managed to avoid authorities long enough to actually birth a second child were fined 1.3 million yuan ($204,000) after family-planning authorities deemed them 'rich in assets', reports. So far this is the highest fine on record. Even worse is that the amount was compounded because the baby turned out to be a girl.

Local family planning authorities worked with commerce, industry and township officials to investigate the couple’s finances. The parents were deemed “rich in assets” and hit with the highest fine on record.

The shock of the amount is compounded by...
