Quadruplets in China!

Description

Last year, a Muslim family welcomed quadruplets. This was technically legal, but their doctor strongly encouraged them to abort some of the babies. Today's episode discusses attitudes in Chinese society that make multiple pregnancies so hard, and my guess about why quadruplets are so rare in China.

*After recording this episode, I found several more references to quadruplets in China. While quadruplets seem to be rarer in China than elsewhere, they do exist.
