Chinese Policewoman Breastfeeds Orphans

Another nice story has come out of the tragedy in China. One policewoman who was breast-feeding her own child took it upon herself to breast-feed several babies rescued after the earthquake. At one point, she was feeding nine babies — five of them orphans. “It is a mother’s reaction,” she said, “and a basic duty as a police officer to help.” [CNN]
