BEIJING: Chinese authorities have banned single women from freezing their eggs to preserve fertility, a media report said.
The health ministry said single women cannot use “assisted reproductive technology” to preserve fertility, while couples must present their marriage certificate, identity cards and birth permits and prove that at least one partner is suffering from fertility issues if they want to use the technology, the Global Times reported.
Lin Ge, deputy head of the Reproductive and Genetic Hospital of Citic-Xiangya, said the technology started in the 1990s and has mainly been used together with in-vitro fertilisation (IVF).
However, following media reports of celebrities who go abroad to use the technology, a growing number of single women have been using the process in China.
Lin said since egg freezing does not necessarily involve IVF, it is not technically an “assisted reproductive technology”.
What is next on the ban List??
Ban or no ban, they can and will still use the technique. It is like prohibition, suh bans will fail, almost always.
It is ban in China and ban on them outside Chinna They can come to any neighbouring country like Japan, India to treasure their legacy !
In near future China puts on ban to progeny. No one will allow to reproduce as population is out busting. See our Indian politician they don’t worry at all … more population more votes.
so sad chinese
Appreciate Chinese strong hand tactics of Governance….Although we are matured democracy some critical laws must be implemented similar to chinese…..For example religious rights in open areas.
The day before yesterday,I saw on TV that it needs more laws to limit its use.
