Q: What happens if a foreigner gets a Chinese girl pregnant?

Let me be clear. This is not about me. Just curious. I've heard stories of a few foreigners getting unmarried Chinese girls pregnant and then trying to run out on them. The parents go to the police and get the foreigner's passport canceled or something. Is there any truth to that?

Honorable and noble are attributives that characterize a good man with a healthy conscience.  If you happen to impregnate a woman, regardless of nationality, creed or race, you have limited options:  1) abort; 2) marry the damsel in question and have the baby.

If you are a scoundrel, you will walk out on the girl leaving her to fend for herself.  Naughty shit there.

On the other hand, if you both agree, abortion is a viable option in China since it is legal, safe, inexpensive, uncomplicated and expeditious (unlike many other countries that muddle the issue with morality and religion).  And you will pay for it, accompany her to the clinic, ensure she is comfortable, and console her thereafter if she needs it.

If you want to have a child, you love the girl, and you are young enough to see your own flesh and blood reach full term (usually around 18 yrs of age), then marry the girl and start a family.  Nothing wrong with that.  People have been engaged in such arrangements for millennia.

If marriage is not your cup of tea, fine.  Just don't walk out on her.  Man up and do the right thing.  Good luck.

If you don't want to marry them, you pay the abortion fee.

But after all you ("the foreigner") are assholes to make them pregnant in first place and then trying to run away without being a little bit responsible and not using protection. And then not to think about STD's.

Never heard if the police cancel's passports (VISA's) or get you deported for that, but for sure they can make your life hell and I'm fully agree with that. I would not have any mercy with those suckers.

Regarding marriage : the art. 6 of the Marriage Law of PRC stipulates that "In order to get married, the man shall not be younger than 22 years old and the woman shall not be younger than 20. Late marriage and late child birth shall be encouraged."

Regarding the "legal" age for having sexual intercourse, it's not clearly define in the Chinese law (except in the case of rape). According to the " Law for Protection of Minors in China ", citizens who are under 18 are considered minors and enjoy special protection by the law. However, the law also considered as a "rape", the intercourse with a woman under 14. Between 14 and 18, the law doesn't really specify in case of consensual intercourse.

Impregnating a Chinese woman (under the legal age of marriage) is also considered a very serious crime in China. The authorities may take a foreigner passport away.

The girl would need to prove that the baby is yours.  And without a DNA test, nothing would happen legally.  However, the family may hire thugs to beat and threaten the person, but aside from that, nothing.

As BFT said, the girl would probably be given money for an abortion.  They are a very common method of birth control here.

If they took your passport for that your embassy should raise hell. That all said, there is an alarming trend of Chinese girls getting abortions paid for by foreigners. Abortion, ain't birth control, people! Wrap it up or use the pill.

If you F some girl and get her pregnant, you have 1 of 3 choices.

1.) If you love her, and she loves you...marry her.
2.) If it was a mistake on your two parts pay for the abortion. (I hate abortions).
3.) If she is a skeezer (and there are many in China), and well connected  she will work you to the bone! You are doomed!

He is stupid and should have his balls cut off. Really though westerns have a higher level of sex education then the local and should exercise that higher level when partaking in the act. Those of you that say condoms don't feel right ot thing like that are just stupid and looking for trouble. By knocking up an unmarried girl here you are ruining her life and she should be your responsiblity. That measn you should support her or pay to get the problem aborted. Or just be smart in the first place and stop flipping coins.

Abortions are common here and the morning after pill is READILY available.  There isn't the huge Christian moral dillema here about terminating pregnancies, so it's a viable option.

As for cancelling passports, only an issueing country has the right to revoke a passport.  China cannot cancel, lock-up, or do anything to your passport.  They CAN revoke your visa however and kick you out of the country.

Getting pregnant before marriage here is a huge cultural no-no, so most girls I don't even think they'd admit it to their parents, unless they are young and maybe a little rebellious (HA!  I'm knocked up by a laowai!  What do you think of that!  We're going to get married and have 20 babies!), naive, or trying to do the "man-trap with a baby" technique.

There seems to be alot of people pointing the finger at foreigners and then saying that abortions are bad blah blah blah... Im assuming these people are chinese.
Well after being here for a while I am pretty shocked at what goes on with locals, personally I always use a condom and all of my foreign friends here do also, if it is their girlfriend then that is for them to decide but for casual sex, for sure always use one.
Since coming here I have learnt that abortions are really nothing to be worried about here, they are even considered pretty standard. I know that western view on abortions is quite controversial and alot of opposition to it, but here I have lost count of how many young girls in my business have just taken a few days off and popped for one. Sure they realise it is silly but it keeps happening and really they can only blame it on poor sexual education.
So I think a bit less finger wagging at foriegners because our society uses condoms, your society seems to giggle uncontrollably at someone buying condoms and then go "oh we didnt know any better, lets pop to the hospital" tsk tsk...

Not possible for a common person to have the ability to do that, especially it the girl is not a local from the province this happened in. But if the parents have connections, this is possible. Just don't understand, why would someone make a girl pregnant and just run. At least prepare to either take of the child in the future or figure out the best solution that fits both parties interest

well making a chinese girl pregnant will not cancel your passport at least. but helping her with abortion and just taking care of a her a little bit in those stressed time might help solve the problem. sex education shall be given to  girls. trust me they are completely dum about these things. Men need to take care about it. AIDS is popular in china. guy take care of yourself, life is precious....... enjoy and die with dignity.

How can an idiot say : "move to other location where she can't find you ...  "  Both of you are same responsible, sometimes men more than woman, idiots !!!!  If you would be a woman and happen this to you,  do you know at least how painful is a abortion ???   And was happen because you as man, no had a condom at you !!! And also because she trusted you when you said will not eliminate your sperm inside her vagina ! But at least you have ejaculation problems that you will never  recognize, but just remember how many times you was do it by yourself with your hand, then think why you have ejaculation problems !!!   World is full of animals as you ! think before to do it ! Condoms are made for men, woman no have penis, so you must wear it , why you men never buy condoms ??? You know only to ask " do you have a condom here? "  but you never think by yourself to buy one,  because you don't care what happen if she will be pregnant .. You have no brain to think ! you think with other head always.......

because of our tradition,so many girls are lack of knowledge of sex,so please be nice to them,they are really naive,,,about the question,yeah,i have heard that kind of things too,there are few results,A:they got married,B:the  guy offered a lot of money after abortion,C:he got beat until half death...but personally  i think it wont be as easy as just cancel  passport,if you can go to policestation before her whole family beat you then you are lucky...good luck guys,use condoms always^_^

I think the answer is the same as anywhere else - you either marry the girl if you love her or offer to pay for an abortion if you don't.  Of course if you are a reall asshole or coward you jump on a plane and go hide.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
