Chinese Women Pregnant After Losing Kids in Earthquake

Nothing is more devastating than losing a child. For parents whose kids died in the Sichuan earthquake last May, China's one child (in some cases two child) policy meant that the moms and dads might not only be without their offspring, but the possibility of having another. Ten thousand families suffered the loss of a child in the natural disaster and to help them deal with the tragedy, the government granted exemptions to their policy. One report said:

Population officials said 5,724 mothers who lost children were given free reproductive services, including counseling, guidance, health exams, sterilization reversals and fertility treatments, Xinhua said.

On Friday, it was announced that 757 of those women are pregnant.

If you have twins, you have twins. You are not made to give one up or kill it. Same goes for triplets etc. Many people in China nowadays have more than 1 child. Rich people just pay the fee. People in the country side are allowed 2. Minorities are allowed 2 or 3 depending on which minority they are. This is to keep the minorities from disappearing.

It is hard to lose a baby in an accident after a mother carried her child in 9 months. How sad but what we can do is to pray for them. Wow cute babies on the photo.
