Heroic Mom Rescued 30 Babies Left to Die in the Trash

The story of a woman in China who found and raised over thirty abandoned babies, and who is now dying herself, has revived the controversy over the country's one child per family policy.

Lou Xiaoying, a poor woman who has made a living by collecting trash, was 48 when she found a baby girl lying on a pile of garbage in the streets of Jinhua.
