A long-term mechanism should be created to crack down on the underground surrogacy industry, with regional legislation and grid-style social management based in communities, according to local political advisers in their proposal to the Two Sessions.
Last week in a post on Weibo, Zheng Shuang, a popular Chinese actress, was accused by her former partner, producer Zhang Heng, of abandoning their two babies born to American surrogate mothers.
Zheng allegedly refused to sign documents required for Zhang to take the babies back to China. As a result, Zhang and the babies remain in the United States.
In a recording Zhang provided, Zheng allegedly expressed frustration that the surrogates, who were seven months pregnant at the time, couldn’t have abortions.
