The Chinese government isn’t getting rid of its one-child policy currently in place. It’s just making it sound better. China’s communist party newspaper, People’s Daily, reports that the government will revamp its abrasive-sounding slogans surrounding the policy.
…Some examples of the more offensive slogans currently in use include:
“If you don’t receive the tubal ligation surgery by the deadline, your house will be demolished!”
“We would rather scrape your womb than allow you to have a second child!”
“Kill all your family members if you don’t follow the rule!”
“Once you get captured, an immediate tubal ligation will be done; Should you escape, we’ll hunt you down; If you attempt a suicide, we’ll offer you either the rope or a bottle of poison.”Go to story
excerpt from conversation, Bombay, January 3, 1977:
…The children should be so trained up that no more birth. And that is life. They can produce hundreds of children, it doesn’t matter, but must be responsible that “The children should be saved. This is the last birth, no more birth. I’ll train the child in such a way that next life he’s going to Krishna, back to home, back to Godhead.” That is parent’s duty. Otherwise they should not become parent. That is contraceptive: “I am not fit to train my children in that way, so I shall not produce cats and dogs.” This is life. Why shall I produce cats and dogs? And Bhaktivinoda Thakura was grihastha [family man], he produced Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati. That is one… So in this way, if there is ideal institution, ideal mode of living, it is happy; everything is all right. That is grihastha. Produce Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati. My Guru Maharaja used to say that “If I can produce krishna-bhakta [devotees] as children, then I’m prepared to marry and produce hundreds of children.” And if we cannot, then we shall not produce even one child.
