One-child policy or family planning policy has been one of the basic national policies of China since late 1970s. To achieve the goal of birth control, Chinese government keeps conducting heavy propaganda and has emblazoned wall slogans reflecting strict family planning laws on buildings across the country. Here are some collected birth control slogans.

The one-child policy was introduced in 1978. The initial aim was to alleviate social, economic, and environmental problems in China, and Chinese authorities claim that the policy has prevented 400 million births from 1979 to 2011.

The one-child policy (simplified Chinese: ??????; literally "policy of birth planning") is the one-child limitation in the population control policy of the People's Republic of China . The Chinese government refers to it under the official translation of family planning policy. The policy is controversial both within and outside China because of the manner in which the policy has been implemented. The policy has been implicated in an increase in forced abortions, female infanticide, and other rampant abuses by the local family planning officials, and has been suggested as a possible cause behind China's gender imbalance and rapid population aging.

The policy is enforced at the provincial level through fines that are imposed based on the income of the family and other factors. Population and Family Planning Commissions (Chinese: ???????; pinyin: Jìhuà Sh?ngyù W?iyuánhuì) exist at every level of government to raise awareness about the issue and carry out registration and inspection work.

The one-child policy has been strongly enforced in urban areas, but the actual implementation varies from location to location. In most rural areas, families are allowed to apply to have a second child if the first is a girl, but second children are subject to birth spacing (usually 3 or 5 years). And the policy only applies to the Han Chinese, many of the minorities do not have to follow the rules, such as Tibetan, Uighur, etc.

The social fostering or maintenance fee (simplified Chinese: ?????) are usually called by Chinese as family planning fine. Families violating the policy are required to pay monetary penalties and might be denied bonuses at their workplace.

Although China outlaws the use of physical force to make a woman submit to an abortion or sterilization, but it is not entirely enforced. In the execution of the policy, many local governments still demand heavy fine, abortions, sterilization, or do not allow the children to be registered, if the pregnancy violates local regulations.

As one of the method to implement the birth control policy, Chinese government keeps conducting heavy propaganda to bombing Chinese poeple with short but easy remembered slogans. The state level slogans are usually soft, but harsh, intimidating, coercive slogans reflecting strict family planning laws emblazoned on buildings across the country.

Chinese government is aware of the harsh slogans and posters and wants to make it sound better. In February of 2012, Chinese government annouced that it will revamp its abrasive-sounding slogans surrounding the policy. The newly instituted program, slugged the "face-washing project," will offer more proactive slogans to help enforce the policy. Reminders of the policy's harshest excesses are being scrubbed away in an effort to create a softer message, with officials phasing out older, threatening slogans in favour of more upbeat ones.

Following are some example birth control slogans of China:

If one family gives more birth, all villagers will be sterilized with tubal ligation.

The more humane slogans: left: Efforts of you, me and us all are required to stabilize the low birth rate; right: Limit the population number and enhance population quality.

Let's sow seeds for the hope of spring and care for the growth of girls.

Fetus sex identification and selective abortion of the fetus are forbidden if unless medically required.

Rather let blood flowing like stream than let more babies be born. Note: the Chinese character more (?) was erased and less (?) was added possibly by local unhappy villagers.

If you travel to other places to evade birth control policy, your properties and assets will possibly have vanished when you come back.

Husbands, you should share the reproduction burdens of your wives.

Caring for the girls is amount to caring for the future of our nation.

Girls and boys are all hope of our nation.

Family planning policy connects Chinese peo ple, rewarding and helping the parents that abide by the law are warmly welcome among the people.

You keep your words, I keep my words, a harmonious family birth control situation will be jointly achieved.

Giving birth to boy and girl are the same, for girl is also the descendant.

Great revolution of family birth planning will drive you crazy, even cocks and dogs will not in peace!

The husband is also responsible for family planning.

Smash! smash! Smash (their house) for those that refuse to have intrauterine device implanted, be sterilized, or pay the family planning penalty.

Strike it ! Abort it! Sterilize it! But never allow it to be born!

Stabilize the low birth rate, speed up the development of new countryside.

Those delaying the check whether they have contraceptive device implanted for one day will be fined, those give one more permitted birth will lose all their family property.

Fully conduct the activity ensuring zero extra birth in our town.

One of the top nationwide birth control slogans: Marry later, give birth later, fewer birth, improved birth

Those giving one more extra birth will be fined RMB 5000, another one more birth RMB 25000, one further more will be fined RMB40000 and those refusing to pay the fine will be transferred to court.

Those giving more births or multiple births will lose all their family fortune!

Those refusing to have contraceptive device implanted as required or refusing to get sterilized as required will be arrested on sight.

Those having given one birth should have contraceptive device implanted; Those having given two births should be sterilized with tubal ligation; Those trying to give the third birth is required to have the baby aborted and then be sterilized with tubal ligation; Those giving extra births will be sterilized and fined.

The first choice for those having given one birth is to have contraceptive intrauterine device implanted, for those having given two births, the first choice is to be sterilized with tubal ligation.

Grow more tabacco, give less births

Grow more trees, but give birth to fewer babies; raise more pigs, but give birth to fewer babies. Note: the Chinese character "?" (fewer) was changed to "?" (more) apparently by some unhappy local parents.

Get pregnant only when you have the (marriage) certificate; give birth only when you have the (birth) permit.

Subsidy of 2 Yuan will be offered for each examination whether a contraceptive IUD is implanted.

Reach a new height in birth control planning during the summer.

If sterilization or abortion demands are rejected, houses will be toppled, cows confiscated.

If your first baby is a boy, stop there; if your first baby is a girl, try again four years later. Complying with family planning policy is a glorious obligation of every citizen.
