"Kochi, Sunday, September 25, 2011: The State-appointed Commission on Rights and Welfare of Women and Children has recommended the setting up of a Kerala State Commission for Children and a Commission for implementation of the Population Regulation Policy in the State.

The recommendations have found place among several other key clauses under the Kerala Children’s Code Bill, 2011 and Kerala Women’s Code Bill, 2011 proposed by the committee headed by VR Krishna Iyer, a former Supreme Court judge.

In a 94-page report submitted to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy here on Saturday, the committee suggested the adoption of family planning and birth control as a secular policy of population regulation in the State.
“Within the scope of a lawful wedlock, solemnised after the date of commencement of this Code, each unit of husband and wife shall limit its children to two for entitlement to the advantages the State grants to the members of a family and for avoidance of the legal disqualifications provided under this Chapter [provisions intended to encourage population planning for well-being and children's development]. If, on the legal termination of a wedlock, one of the spouses lawfully marries again, the children born by that wedlock shall be members of a different family for the purpose of this Chapter,” the report said.

The committee recommended that any act or omission, movement, campaign or project, which induces or tends to induce the violation of the family norm of two children as prescribed under this Chapter, or in any other manner abets the violation of the provisions, shall be regarded as a ‘legally disqualified person.’"

let us see, if kerala can now lead the way ...
