Odd Much? Chinese Woman Arrested For Selling Newborn Baby

A woman in central China has been arrested for selling her newborn baby for $7,000. The 30-year-old woman, surnamed Huang, allegedly colluded with an obstetrician, Yang, in Xinxiang county, Henan province, to sell the baby boy, according to the Procuratorial Daily.

In turn, Yang sold the baby boy to a couple in the same county for 42,000 yuan ($7000). She gave 35,000 yuan to Huang and kept 7,000 yuan for herself.

The case would come to light last August after the boy’s grandmother alerted police.

The grandmother said Huang had left the village to go to her parents’ home after quarreling with her husband.

When Huang returned two weeks later, she said the baby had died but the grandmother grew suspicious after noting that her daughter in law did not appear sad. A relative would then subsequently discover that the baby boy had been sold.

Pressed on why she sold the child, Huang told that she had a son from a previous marriage and thought a new baby would be bad for the elder child, reports said.

The boy is now in the care of his father’s family.

The latest case to come to the fore highlights the burgeoning instances of child trafficking in China where traffickers seek to capitalize on the demand for healthy babies from adoptive babies here as well as overseas

The police said they had busted a trafficking ring involving at least 103 people, and rescued 37 newborn babies that were transported in handbags and suitcases to prospective buyers.
