Legal Evening News: Excessive Births Abroad Will Be Fined upon Return

Legal Evening News recently reported that, according to the National Population and Family Planning Commission, if both parents are residents of Mainland China, then giving birth to a second child abroad will result in a fine upon return. The standard for the fine will vary depending on the couple’s residence location. Recently many pregnant women have traveled to Hong Kong to deliver their babies. The Chief of the Family Planning Committee of Guangdong Province issued a warning in this regard and declared that giving birth to a child beyond the first one in Hong Kong was illegal for Mainland parents. If a parent is a Communist Party member and a government official, he or she will lose that Party membership and the government work.
