Joe Biden China's One Child Policy!

From http://dailycaller.com: Pro-life advocates are not pleased with comments Vice President Joe Biden made during his appearance at Sichuan University in Chengdu, China, Sunday. Following his prepared remarks about the U.S. debt, Biden answered a question about how America can reduce deficits and strengthen America's financial system. His response included a tacit acceptance of China's one-child policy — a mandate which has resulted in mass abortions, sterilizations and heavy penalties for violators. In explaining the demographic concerns of funding for future generations, Biden cited the Chinese policy:

But as I was talking to some of your leaders, you share a similar concern here in China. You have no safety net. Your policy has been one which I fully understand -- I'm not second-guessing -- of one child per family. The result being that you're in a position where one wage earner will be taking care of four retired people. Not sustainable. So hopefully we can act in a way on a problem that's much less severe than yours, and maybe we can learn together from how we can do that.
