Couple sells daughter for an iPhone, proving that some folks should be sterilized
China! What is going on over there? Seriously! Between reports coming out of you and Florida I am continually getting shocked and not in a good way. A young Chinese couple are facing criminal charges for selling their baby girl. Shanghai prosecutors brought a case against the couple for illegally putting their child up for adoption and accepting money for her. You would think that if parents are desperate enough to sell one of their children, they must be in financially dire straights, right? So what did the couple allegedly use the money they got from HUMAN TRAFFICKING for? To buy an iPhone, expensive tennis shoes, and some other stuff. Really?!

I am absolutely appalled and I am totally not buying the excuse that the heartless couple gave to authorities which was, "Giving away the child was not for obtaining benefits, but giving the child better guarantees." First of all, you did not GIVE AWAY the child, you SOLD the child and then you used the money to buy materialistic crap. Is that what "better guarantees" means?
It is unclear how much the couple received for their daughter, but their online posting asked for about $4,900 and $8,200.
Seriously, what is going on China? I get poverty, I totally understand desperation, but trafficking children for electronic gadgets, yeah, I do NOT get that at ALL. Ugh, and then trying to claim that you did it for the good of the child. Shame on you!
