Abortion in China

6 February 2017

Thursday 9th Feb, 6–7pm, Room 802, Institute of EducationHealth Humanities Seminar. Speaker: Cong Yali 丛亚丽 (PKU), introduced by Vivienne Lo.

Drawing from a PKU study in 2003, several general perspectives on abortion in contemporary China become clear. In contrast to perspectives in other parts of the world, the value attributed to the foetus depends on the individual judgment of parents and how its role is perceived within the constellation of the individual family. In recent times a transformation has also been taking place in sex selection and to the traditional preference for boys. Owing to changes in the family structure, and for reasons of personal liberty, more and more city residents now prefer girls. What, now, are the implications of recent policy changes permitting couples to have two children?
