Q.4 If you are the chairman of China Government, would you use the one-child policy to reduce the overpopulation problem Discuss.

Our viewpoints about Q.4
2 I

would use it if my country has too many people, I will be hard to take care them. If I use it, then many problem will be solved. Just like the food shortage and recourses for the children‘s study. This problem have many benefits e.g. population grow at slow rate.

Our viewpoints about Q.4
5 I

would use the one-child policy. It is because we can control the population and we can save the energy more. Also one-child policy can low down the birth rate. If the birth rate becomes more and more, the government will have a heavy burden.

Our viewpoints about Q.4
6 I

agree with the One-Child Policy. It is because this can reduce the people in China. If there are a lot of people, there will have a lot of problem. Like the environmental problem and the food supply. So I think the Chinese Government is done it right.

Our viewpoints about Q.4
 

me I would not use this policy to reduce the overpopulation problem because I respect to the right of my people to raise their families. It is human rights. The O.C.P. doesn’t control the growth of population in the rural areas. It is not fair to the urban families. It will damage the image of the government. The citizens will think that I am not democratic. I will lose their support. The people may leave my country. Other countries will condemn this O.C.P. and sanction my government. I may use other methods to reduce the overpopulation problem. For examples develop the western region. Encourage my citizens to born 1 to 2 children only by giving them educational price or other benefits else but not to limit the couples to born 1 child only.

Q.5 If you are a catholic student, how do you think about the one-child policy? Discuss.

Our viewpoints about Q.5
2  If

I am a catholic student, I will agree it because country problem are very important. If those problem doesn’t stop, It may begin wars or something else. So country in my heart is always important then catholic.

Our viewpoints about Q.5
5  If

I am a catholic student, I think the onechild policy is not good. It is because Jesus tells us all people are our friends, more people equal to more friends. If there is one-child policy, I will have fewer friends.

Our viewpoints about Q.5
6  If

I am a catholic student, I think the OneChild policy is inhumanity. It is because this policy makes the people in China cannot birth more children. And also they have the free so they can birth a lot of children.

Our viewpoints about Q.5
 11 I

don’t support the O.C.P. if I am a Catholic student. Catholics think that life is given by God, so they don’t allow themselves to kill the baby before birth. The Pope said we should respect to life but these thing is opposite to China’s O.C.P.. If I am a faithful Catholic student, I will follow the word of my lord.

Result of O.C.P.
 In

the past ten years, China’s population grew about 132000000 people.  The total population is about 1295330000 people.  In the past ten years, Chinese annual population growth rate was 1.07%. It decreased 0.4% from 20century the 80s.

Future movement of O.C.P.
 China

should not relax its one-child policy as it struggles to keep its population within 1.37 billion by the end of the next ten years.

Our feeling
After a long discussion, 3 people like one-child policy and 1 person doesn’t like it.  The main reasons why THEY support:  Overpopulation makes  1)the government can’t control.  2)Many environmental problems  3)Crowded  4) severe unemployment problem………
     

The main reasons why HE doesn’t support: This is a good way to train the government to use their citizens. China is in shortage of food? Put more people in the cultivated land and stop the desertification to affect the farmland. Birth more PERHAPS can have some experts to develop new resources. The major and the fastest way : Education the people. Build up their mind. Four of the teammates think the title (one-child policy) is special. The answer is YES or NO and gives REASONS. The main point is here. If we choose yes, the benefits are the same. If we choose no, it is difficult to create some reasons EASILY. Also we learnt plenty of words about one-child policy.
