    Jinan Huang - Her 5 Out Of 6 Babies To Be Killed

    Jinan Huang of Shanghai has given birth to six babies. China's one-child-per-family law can only accomodate one baby. Jinan Huang has been given one week by government officials to decide which child she will keep. The remaining five babies will have to be thrown off a mountaintop to die. Jinan Huang is considering keeping the second-born boy. Jinan Huang has vehemently denied taking fertility drugs, the use of which is punishable by death in China.

    What do you say?

        Of course it is.  As UninvitedWriter pointed out above, The Onion is a satire publication.

          Even without that knowledge, it's hard to believe that anyone could read a story like that and find it credible.

      Thank you, Uninvited Writer.

      You say the website is Satire? But why should the law allow them to use lies and witty language to insults others? Either way, does China's one-child-per-family law allow multiple birth?

    Depends on where you live and what you do.

    Farmers, those living in rural areas, and members of certain minority groups are allowed to have more than one child under the law.

    I also read on The Onion that we will soon run out of Hannah Montana.

    Why should The Onion be allowed to use lies and witty language to amuse others? Uh -- I think it's something to do with the First Amendment or something like that.

    Now back to the moral issue at hand. First she should go to her Netflix account and put "Sophie's Choice" in her queue.

    Next she should immediately get in touch with Octomom. I bet she'd take the extra 5 er sher!

      The First Amendment is a US law.


      Fiction and witty language have been around for a long time all around the world. We use it for entertainment, social commentary, a coping mechanism...

    I dunno about that, Ron. Fierycj seems to be in an exceptionally good mood tonight. I'm wondering if he got a little fiery between the sheets last night? I think that's where he said he was going....

    Never heard of the Onion site. But someone posted me that news. Never believed a word of it.

    Not to long ago, I heard there was no ban on births in China. In fact, the government encourages future births.

    Under Mao during the Great Leap Forward having as many kids as possible was encouraged, to 'outbreed' any possible enemies of the state.

    I agree my friend is from Shanghai, They still do have a one child policy, but it is mainly because people have become accustomed, she tells me that in the Villages, many people have piles of kids just like in the Western Countries, Your Cousins are your sisters and brothers, but I think this is absolute rubbish. China would not sanction the throwing kids of a mountaintop. The richer people that have more than one child have to pay all that childs expenses. Unbelievable.
