From purchasing large items of specialist medical equipment to buying new toys for the Children’s Hospital, Derby Hospitals Charity has been able to make a real difference to the care that patients receive when they are in hospital. The birth rate surged in 1967 and returned to its previous trend as people found ways to circumvent the decree. Before 1967, the Romanian abortion policy was one of the most liberal in Europe. Because the availability of contraceptive methods was poor, abortion was the most common means of family planning.
Through a combination of modernization of the Romanian community, the high participation of women in the labor market and a low standard of living, the number of births significantly decreased since the 1950s, reaching its lowest value in 1966. However, the leaders saw the decreasing number of births mainly as a result of the decree issued in 1957 that legalized abortion. To counter this sharp decline of the population, the Communist Party decided that the Romanian population should be increased from 23 to 30 million inhabitants. In October 1966, Decree 770 was authorized by Ceaușescu. To enforce the decree, society was strictly controlled.
Contraceptives disappeared from the shelves and all women were forced to be monitored monthly by a gynecologist. Any detected pregnancies were followed until birth. Sex education was refocused primarily on the benefits of motherhood, including the ostensible satisfaction of being a heroic mother who gives her homeland many children. The direct consequence of the decree was a huge baby boom. Between 1966 and 1967 the number of births almost doubled, and the number of children per woman increased from 1. The generation born in 1967 and 1968 was the largest in Romanian history. Hastily, thousands of nursery schools were built.
