China: Penjualan Istri akibat kebijakan satu anak

Akibat kebijakan satu anak, ditambah preferensi keluarga China yang lebih menginginkan anak laki-laki daripada anak perempuan, maka komposisi penduduk China lebih banyak pria daripada wanita.

Menurut catatan pemerintah China, ada 117,6 laki-laki untuk setiap kelahiran 100 anak perempuan.
Dan peneliti Australian National University, Terence Hull mengatakan lebih dari setengah juta bayi perempuan hilang!

Sangat mungkin kedua data diatas disebabkan banyaknya aborsi dan/atau penjualan bayi perempuan.

Dan karena sedikitnya perempuan dewasa, maka harga istri menjadi semakin mahal. Umumnya pria diharuskan membayar sekitar $64.000 kepada keluarga perempuan untuk “membeli” istri, belum ditambah dengan rumah dan hadiah-hadiah lainnya.

China has noted a significant disparity between male and female births annually since 1986. In 2013, the Chinese government reported that 117.6 boys were born for every 100 girls.
“Over half a million female infants are missing,” Terence H. Hull, an epidemiologist at the Australian National University, wrote in a recent study. As a result, by 2020, the National State Population and Family Planning Commission of China predicts eligible males will outnumber females by at least 30 million.
