Breastfeeding policewoman in China

I’m sure everyone’s already seen this by now, but my friend Jessica passed along this video. This policewoman considered it her duty to breastfeed the infants she found hungry after the earthquake in China, at one point she was feeding 9 babies in addition to her own. She says it’s such a small thing and not even worth mentioning. She’s a national hero in China.

You know the reaction would be different here in the US.

PS, interesting that the CNN footage does not show her actually nursing any of the babies, but there is a brief shot of her on the front page of the Chinese newspaper, and she is nursing an infant in the photo. A large photo. on the front page of the paper.

There’s a lot of bad about China, but this is definitely among the good things.
