BEIJING (AP) — Nearly two years later, an unmarried woman suing Beijing for the right to freeze eggs filed a rare legal objection on Friday to national restrictions on unmarried women in reproductive health. His case is being heard in the court.
Teresa Xu has been waiting for her second hearing at the Chaoyang People’s Court in Beijing since December 2019. She is suing Beijing Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital at Capital Medical College, a public hospital that prohibits her from freezing eggs, citing domestic law.
Xu’s victory could be an important step for unmarried women in China who want access to the public interest. However, unlike the United States, Chinese court decisions do not rely on priority.
“Three years have passed since 2018, my eggs are growing with me, and the deadlines are getting tighter,” Xu, 33, said.
The latest census data shows that while population growth is slowing, the proportion of older people is increasing. The number of newborn babies has been declining every year since 2016. According to national data, 12 million babies will be born in 2020, which is 18% less than 14.6 million in 2019.
Beijing said it would respond by allowing families to have a third child and would renew policies to support families who want to have children.
