Chinese Court Hears a Single Woman’s Quest to Freeze Her Eggs
BEIJING—An unmarried Chinese woman’s suit to be allowed to freeze her eggs resumed in court after a two-year hiatus, drawing fresh attention to how China’s quest to boost births makes few concessions for women planning children out of wedlock. The Chinese government abandoned its one-child policy in 2016 and now allows couples to have as many as three children. But even as Beijing takes a number of steps to lift sagging birthrates, single women keep running up against the same systemic barrier: In most parts of the country, births are only encouraged, or even allowed, within marriage.
