South Korean Courts: Life Begins at Birth

Ruling a "Social Defeat," Says Bioethicist

The Western civilization should accept the teaching of the Chinese philosophers. The reason for this is that when a baby is born, the baby is already one year old!

So, when you ask a Chinese for his age, he will ask you Chinese age or non-Chinese age?

It is too bad the Koreans forgot their Chinese heritage.
