Undaunted By China’s Rule Book, Lesbian Couple Welcomes Their Newborn Twins

May 13, 2016

(NPR) – Chinese women Rui Cai and Cleo Wu gave birth to twins last month, following a successful in vitro fertilization. It wasn’t simple. Cai took two eggs from Wu, added sperm from a U.S. sperm bank, had them put in her womb at a clinic in Portland, Ore., then returned to China to give birth. The lesbian couple is one of the first in China known to have used this form of surrogacy.
