武汉拟对未婚妈妈与小三罚款

2013-06-03    来源:China Daily    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

5月31日,武汉市法制网公布了《武汉市人口与计划生育管理若干规定(征求意见稿)》(以下简称《规定》)。据《湖北省人口与计划生育条例》,城镇(农村)居民超生1个孩子,将按所在县(市、区)上一年度城镇(农村)居民年人均可支配收入的3倍分别征收社会抚养费。

新规还明确,未婚生育且不能提供对方有效证明的、明知他人有配偶而与其生育子女的,都要按以上征收标准的2倍,缴纳社会抚养费。这对社会上俗称的“未婚妈妈”、“小三”来说,生育后都将面临缴纳社会抚养费的问题。

2012年,武汉市城市居民人均可支配收入为27061元。

造成未婚妈妈生育的男方该怎么约束

新规可操作性不强

罚款更多是“约束穷人”

New law would fine unmarried mothers

Draft legislation that includes fines for unmarried mothers in a city in Central China has sparked controversy among experts and residents.

The Regulation on Wuhan's Population and Family Planning Management, released by the city's legislative affairs office, imposes financial penalties on unmarried mothers, including those who give birth to a child for a married man although she is aware the man is married.

The aim is to intensify family planning management and keep the birth rate at a low level, according to the regulation.

Authorities released the draft online on Friday and will accept public suggestions and comments until June 7. If approved, the regulation will replace similar rules issued in 2010.

The draft states that an unmarried mother must pay a fine equivalent to at least twice the average income in the previous year.

According to China's family planning law, rule-breakers have to pay "social compensation fees", and government employees also face administrative punishments.

In many areas, the fine is equivalent to at least three times her average income for the previous year. A health and family planning commission official for Wuhan, said on Sunday that the national and Hubei provincial regulations also disapprove of unmarried women having a child, although the punishment is not as clearly specified as in the new Wuhan regulation.

"Wuhan's commission will take into account public opinion and submit the amended regulation to the people's congress for approval before it can be carried out," the official said on condition of anonymity.

Zhai Zhenwu, director of Renmin University's School of Sociology and Population Studies, said having children without marriage registration is a behavior not protected by law.

"Imposing fines on the unmarried who have children is, in fact, a common practice that has been carried out in China for a long time," he said.

Yuan Xin, a professor of population studies at Nankai University, said although the regulation is meant to check the number of children born out of wedlock, it fails to take into account the complexity of society and is difficult to be carried out.

As Chinese society becomes more open and diverse, families are also becoming diversified, and new problems have made family planning more complex, he said.

"For example, the number of people who choose to be single has increased rapidly in recent years," Yuan said. "If the regulation is carried out, such people will not be able to legally have a child, which is irrational.

"Besides, how can you define that an unmarried mother is or is not aware the father of the child is married?"

The regulation needs to be explained in greater detail before it can be carried out effectively, Yuan added.

The regulation also caused controversy among residents.

"The regulation is ridiculous," added Wang Qiong, a professor at Wuhan University. "What if a woman chooses to have a test tube baby without getting married? Should she also be fined?"(China Daily)
