According to Al Jazeera, China experimented with a town in China, which was exempted from the “One-Child” Policy. The idea was to confirm whether this Policy or the lack of it, would influence population growth. Some 30 years after the policy was introduced, this experiment concluded that even without the policy, population growth was lower than the national average. This policy which has led to lopsided gender demographics where boys outnumber girls, was not necessary. The harm appears to have outweighed any benefits.
