Taiwan also Has a High Rate of Boys to Girls

By Kevin Stoda, Matsu Islands, Taiwan

Earlier this month, I wrote an article on ONLIES, i.e. on single child's households, their lives (especially social lives) and their attainments in career, in school, etc. The article was entitled A NEW WORLD OF ONLIES. I followedthis articleup by looking at the issues created by single-child policy in China over the past 3 decades.

This Republic of China (Taiwan) doesn't even officially have a one child policy--and the government is so concerned with the conniving of hospitals and parent that they will likely be taken to court or penalized for their contribution to the imbalance in society's gender make-up.

See the article from the TAIPEI TIMES here. It is entitled "DOH to Investigate Gender Selection of Newborn Babies".:
