The government of China, which has been very restrictive about the rights of pregnant females in college, announced new regulations which will protect them against being abused. Under a recent law, “Married student will be given free advice on reproductive sexual health and contraception, schools will cover part of the cost of antenatal and child care in accordance with relevant school rules, and female students will be entitled to maternity leave.” At present, female college students are frequently expelled if it is discovered they are pregnant.
This is an excellent sign of growing maturity on the part of the Communist government regarding the rights of students. Hopefully, it will be followed by extending all aspects of human rights to the population. At least, it is a first step.
