Without a hukou, a child faces difficulty getting into kindergarten and school.Growing concernSingle women are becoming increasingly concerned about their reproductive rights, and the issue should be addressed urgently, Li said. The law should be adjusted according to changing social situations, she added.Li suggested that the family planning law be changed to allow each woman, married or single, the right to have her own children.Northeast Chinas Jilin province took a lead on the topic last year.Single women of marriage age who have no children and decide to stay single can have a baby via assisted reproductive technology, states an amendment to the provincial family planning regulation.”That, in truth, is more practical than just a human rights issue,” said Lu Jiehua, professor of sociology at Peking University.Due to the family planning policy and socioeconomic development, Chinese peoples perception about reproduction has changed as well, he said.Currently, the fertility rate (the number of children a woman gives birth to in her lifetime) stands at around 1.4, far below the rate of 2.1, which is necessary to replace the population.Lu projected that the number of women age 23 to 28 would decrease to about 42 million by 2024 from more than 73 million last year.”A shortage in the labor supply is looming,” he warned. “That will hurt economic growth as well.”Single women should be allowed to freeze their eggs if they plan to have children, and that would help address the population issue,” he said.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesFrozen assets may not beat the biological clockPhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsDelegation salutes Tibet anniversaryOfficials are told to act as anti-graft watchdogsGreat Wall safeguarded in united actionVice minister pledges more efforts to improve air qualityBeijing’s efforts to control air pollution start to pay offChinas military committed to reformNetizens rip singer over baby photosCentral govts growing support for TibetMonument to be built on Tianjin blast siteChina and Russia seal raft of energy dealsIn todays trending, pet dog turns out to be Artic fox, a modern recreation of Suzhous famous gardens sells for $78 million, a classroom is rented out as a hotel, and a public toilet is converted into a restaurant.HighlightsBeijing expects severe traffic congestion on next two daysWe have a heart for themBeijings preparations begin long before the parade starts8 interesting facts about the upcoming V-day ParadeHot TopicsGround level Rule of law Panda China youths Anti-terror drive Family planning Smog Fox Hunt Beijing integrates with Tianjin, Hebei China cracks down on graftSpecialGlimpses of Tibet: Plateaus, people and faith50th anniversary of Tibet autonomous region…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
