National Law Committee Proposes to Remove Draft Ban on Surrogate Pregnancy in China

The national legislature of the People's Republic of China, National People's Congress (NPC) has suggested to delete a controversial provision on banning surrogate pregnancy in a draft law amendment.

The draft amendment which was submitted for review at the bi-monthly session of the NPC Standing Committee allows couples to have two children.

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.
