A wealthy Chinese couple have been evicted from their home, after the country’s strict one-child-family enforcers discovered they had eight babies.
The unnamed couple, from the southern metropolis of Guangzhou, had four boys and four girls over a two-month period last year – with the help of two surrogate mothers – but kept the children a secret.
The couple claimed they did not intend to have so many children. But the case has made a mockery of China’s controversial one-child policy, and the provincial government has launched an investigation.
The area’s deputy health chief said: ‘Why did they have to hire so many people to have babies for them? Did they think they had the right to bear children just because they were rich? Secondly, what respect to life did they show? Multiple pregnancies are super risky.’
