China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

Four­teen gov­ern­ment de­part­ments will fight sex-test­ing for fe­tuses to ease the high birth-sex ra­tio, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional Health and Fam­ily Plan­ning Com­mis­sion. Tasks in­clude for­bid­ding In­ter­net ads, putting staff un­der stricter su­per­vi­sion and pun­ish­ing ser­vice providers. The birth ra­tio of males to fe­males in China was 117.6 in 2013, one of the high­est in the world, the com­mis­sion said.
