If adopted, the draft will replace the decades-long "one couple, one child" policy. However, the draft stipulated that trade of sperm, eggs, fertilized eggs and embryos is forbidden. Surrogate pregnancy in any form is not allowed.

The Committee explained that this new draft will favor the new generation while older adults who obeyed the rule to have only one child will get affected. It said that more support should be provided for parents whose only child has a disability or deceased.

The NPC Law Committee suggested to adopt these opinions, delete the drafted ban and take away another provision of the punishment for violations of the ban.
