Chinese Judge Rules Embryos of Dead Parents Cannot Be Inherited

China's One-Child Policy rears its ugly head yet again:

Guo said that there is no law in China banning embryos from being inherited. He urged the hospital to return the embryos to either of the deceased couple's parents.

"We just want to retrieve the embryos and store them at a hospital of our choice. Then we will cross our fingers and wait for the ban on surrogacy to end," said Hu Xingxian, Shen's mother.

Shen and Liu were both single children in their families. Hu said that as both their parents are already old, this is the only hope for them to have biological grandchildren.
