CHINA...1.3 BILLIONTH CITIZEN USED TO PROMOTE BIRTH LIMITS
BEIJING --
Greeted by national television coverage of his first
bath, a boy born Thursday was declared China's
1.3 billionth citizen in a blaze of publicity to
promote the government's controversial "one child"
birth limits.

The infant was presented with a certificate of his
status after his birth at 12:02a.m. at Beijing
Maternity Hospital. State TV's evening news showed
his mother, Lan Hui, a 31-year old employee of
Shell China, receiving flowers, and the newborn
getting a bath and a massage.

"I am the happiest guy in the world, and my boy will
be blessed all his life", the father Zhang Tong, 37,
who works for Air China, told the official Xinhua
News Agency.

The baby is the star of a campaign touting what the
communist government says are the successes of its
decades-old policy limiting most urban couples to
one child.

"The family planning policy of the past 30 years has
effectively controlled the over-rapid increase in
China's population", the official China Daily
Newspaper said.
