'Entire generation wiped out' as China counts toll of earthquake on nation's one-child families (Daily Mail, 14th May 2008)

Fears were mounting today that almost an entire generation may have been wiped out in the China earthquake as the death toll leapt to at least 20,000.

China's one-child policy, an attempt to curb the nation's soaring population, means the quake will have robbed many families of their only hope of a future.

With thousands caught in school buildings as the quake struck in the middle of Monday afternoon, children are among its most conspicuous victims.

And people wonder why conservatives are at war with Reason?
