A Chinese man who was fined 2.6 million yuan for having 8 children reduced to 90,000 yuan

A Chinese family with eight children was slapped with a 2.6 million yuan fine for breaking China's family planning laws. This was later reduced to 90,000 yuan, Chinese news site Jiemian reported on Monday.
 

In their quest for a son, 50-year-old farmer Liu Mouhua and his former wife continued having children. The couple from Anyue county in west China's Sichuan had five daughters before giving birth to two sons in 2006 and 2010, and a daughter in between the boys.
 

In China, many families have a preference for sons because they are the ones who pass on the family name. However, the country also has a strict population planning policy, under which families who exceed the number of children allowed are fined or have to pay "social support fees."
 

These fines and payments are usually calculated based on annual income and decided by local governments. In Sichuan province and before 2016, the fine was between six and eight times the family's annual income, reported Jiemian. The fine was later reduced to three times the family's annual income.
 

All of Liu's children were born before 2015 — at which point China relaxed its one-child policy to two — so he was fined for every child born after the first. The 2.6 million yuan fine was a penalty for Liu's sixth, seventh, and eighth children. It's unclear how much he paid in fines or "social support" for his other children.
 

After local authorities spoke to the local court and lawyers, the fine was lowered to 90,000 yuan to be paid in installments, Jiemian reported.
 

The father of eight told Jiemian he was resigned to paying the fine but admitted it was a struggle with five children who are still in school and two in college.
 

Liu's story has caused a stir on Chinese social media as China suffers from a rapidly aging and shrinking population. Earlier this year, the country expanded its two-child policy to three to encourage more births.
 

四川男子生8胎,被征社会抚养费从266万降到9万

最近,三胎政策的放开成了人们热议的话题,有些人更是直接付出实际行动,想要生个三胎,完成有个儿子的梦想。没想到,第3胎确实是儿子,而且还是4胞胎。近日,河南周口一位孕妇产下罕见四胞胎男婴的新闻引起了很多关注。孩子的爸爸得知妻子生下四胞胎男婴之后,更是喜极而泣。
 

本来以为,一个家庭有6个孩子就已经很多了。不成想山外有山,四川省安丘县一户家庭竟累计生育了8个子女。因为生育的孩子太多,已经超过了计划生育的要求,相关部门拟定对其征收266万元的社会抚养费。
 

据安丘县卫健局政策法规股负责人介绍,当事人刘某华与妻子生育这8个子女均是发生在全面放开二孩政策之前。按照当时的法律规定,除了第1个孩子之外,其余的7个子女都要征收社会抚养费。
 

刘某华的第2个孩子和第3个孩子出生的时间比较早,而且已经被征收过社会抚养费。后来因因为发过几次洪水,刘某华的一些资料也被洪水冲没了,他们也没办法确认刘某华生育第4个孩子和第5个孩子的行为有没有被处理。后来经过商议,相关部门决定只对他第6个孩子,第7个孩子以及第8个孩子征收社会抚养费。
 

这三个孩子分别被征收的社会抚养费金额为27.8万余元、71.8万元和166.6万余元,合计征收266.3万元。
 

此事一经曝光,引起了社会人士的广泛热议。计划生育的实施就是为了控制超生的问题,如果违反法律规定要征收社会抚养费,大家也能理解。但是抚养8个孩子压力本就很大了,现在又要被征收200多万的费用,一个家庭哪里拿得出来。
 

7月5日,安丘县卫健局对此事作出了回应,经过协商,卫监局决定将这户超生家庭的社会抚养费降至9万元,目前这个征收决定已经获得了当事人的认可,对方也已经在征收决定书上签字,他们约定这笔款项会分期缴纳。
