Beijing Youth Daily reports that the Chinese government is to do away with all crude and abrasive family planning slogans.
The paper says that many family planning slogans currently in place use prohibitive expressions, for example: "An unplanned birth will result in birth control surgery".
Although many of them are correct in content, they sound indifferent and overly stern.
Such slogans cannot successfully guide the public; mostly they cause aversion and even conflict.
China's family planning departments have, therefore, collected and selected about 200 new slogans that are more friendly and useful, like: "Our Earth Mom is too tired and cannot support many more kids".
In addition, the departments require that all slogans must be written in a unified size and format.
