In other news make sure to check out Laiba Haiza (Come On, Child), the new reality show about the miracles of child birth. Beijing Cream described it as possibly the best new tool to promote population control.
It's shockingly hard-lined approach is causing night terrors for sexually active people all across China. The program uses 64 cameras installed in the birthing room to accurately portray "the greatness of a mother’s love." Somebody give that lady an epidural.
