Chen Guangcheng, a human rights activist was planning to launch a class action lawsuit against the Chinese government for human rights abuses perpetrated in the course of its one-child policy in 2005. He was arrested, beaten, subjected to a staged trial and imprisoned.

Human rights abuses are wrong and the Chinese government carries out far too many of them.

But the one child policy was, is, and remains , absolutely right.
