How is it not a good comparison?

The one child policy was implemented due to the inability of china to feed all the people.

Incorrect ...............

The 'One-Child-Policy' was based on forward predictions of population rate  ................

And especially with regard to the 21st century ...........

Check your facts first ...........

Well if they do not have the means to control whether they have children or not, its hardly a matter of selfishness.

There have been many incentives used in Africa and India for birth control including free condoms and even ..........

A free radio for females having tubal ligation or sterilization ............

However ........

HR groups complained about this as it would seem they would rather have millions of dying babies .......

Indefinately though?

I think it is too much to ask.

You're basically saying then that you can't have sex until menopause.  That takes about 50 years or more.

Don't you think that's a bit unreasonable?
