The National Health and Family Planning Commission has lashed out at a provincial office in Hunan for its plans not to harshly penalize those who gave birth to a second child before a new two-child policy is enacted by the China’s rubber-stamp legislature, South China Morning Post reported. The national commission stressed that the new policy cannot be implemented until the National People’s Congress Standing Committee amends the Population and Family Planning Law. Each province will then draft its own implementation plan for local people’s congresses to approve and change their family planning laws, usually done in the first quarter.
