One Child Nation

After watching One Child Nation, I was completely shocked by what the Chinese government had done to its citizens.  I had heard of Chinese families only allowed to have one child but didn’t know all of the gruesome details.  It sickened me to know how they would abandon babies and leave them to die, and these poor women how they were forced to abort and be sterilized.  I could not imagine the pain this caused so many.  Also, how the government would come in and tear their roof off if they didn't follow the policy.  This all seems absolutely brutal.  It amazing how the government basically brain washed all the people by the propaganda that was in place, and that they felt this was for the good of the country.  Everyone who was involved in family planning just felt there was no other option and had to just do their job.  How was the Chinese government able to kill all those babies without anyone stepping in?  It really shows how powerful China really is, and that they are basically able to do whatever they want and not be stopped.  I’m grateful to see that so many babies were adopted and have at a chance to live their lives.  Hopefully, as the children age that they understand what was being done and are able to be reunited with family members back in China.  Being that this policy has ended very recently, I’m curious to see how this will affect their society in the long run.  It has already been mentioned that there are not enough people to care for the aging population.  I would think something like this would have a lasting impact for many years to come.
