In this Monday, Oct. 17, 2011 photo, Wu Weiping, 35, watches her daughter Wang Yile, 4, right, and her son Wu Yixiao, 2, play at home in Zhuji, in eastern China’s Zhejiang province. Chinese today are free to choose where they live and work and who they want to marry, but when it comes to having kids, the state says the majority must stop at one. China’s controversial population-curbing measure is facing a small but increasingly defiant community of parents who have risked their jobs, savings and physical safety to have a forbidden second child.
