Chinese Daughters: Abandoned at Birth
In 1979 the Chinese Government introduced the ‘one child’ policy which was designed to curb the growth of the Chinese population; today estimated to be some 1.4 billion people.
As with any Asian countries the Chinese have a preference for male heirs so that the family name may live on.
Over the decades the international community has be subjected time and time again to tales of Chinese Daughters being abandoned at birth.
In this video YuJu, meaning ‘Jade Chrysanthemum’ tells her story of abandonment due to the Chinese Governments ‘one child policy’.
