China bans ‘nasty’ slogans in enforcing 1-child policy

Catholic World News - March 02, 2012

China’s National Population and Family Planning Commission has directed officials not to use “nasty” slogans in enforcing the nation’s one-child policy, according to a Chinese media report.

Examples of slogans that are now forbidden include “kill all your family members if you don’t follow the rule,” “we would rather scrape your womb than allow you to have a second child,” and “if you don’t have your tubes tied, your house will be demolished.” Another now-forbidden slogan states: “Once you are captured, your tubes will be tied. Should you escape, we’ll hunt you down. If you attempt suicide, we’ll offer you either the rope or a bottle of poison.”

Instead, the government is encouraging the slogan “caring for a girl means caring for the future of the nation.”
