China babies 'sold for adoption


news.bbc.co.uk

Dozens of baby girls in southern China have reportedly been taken from parents who broke family-planning laws, and then sold for adoption overseas.

An investigation by the state-owned Southern Metropolis News found that about 80 girls in one county had been sold for $3,000 (£1,800).

The babies were taken when the parents could not pay the steep fines imposed for having too many children.

Local officials may have forged papers to complete the deals, the report said.

I am all for family planing but this seems to be a little to exstreem.
I am aware that there have been laws restricting birth rates in China for quite some time. This news article does go on to say that it has been an unpopular policy. Combined that with the unofficial freedom marches that have happened in Hong Kong, and one might wonder if China could see a change in home policy.

There is nothing new about this news unfortunetly. This has been going on for decades in China. I guess it's a step up though, they use to just murder them.

I'd like to see your source for that one? As far as I know, babies are taken away from parents and sold for adoption in Canada. Atleast not forcefully?

Wait so you mean to say that you know that human trafficing happens all over but babies are exempt?
