Chinese baby girls sold for adoption
Published: July 2, 2009 at 11:55 PM
As many as 80 newborn baby girls from China's southwest Guizhou Province were sold for adoption by foreign parents since 2001, a newspaper probe found.
China Daily, quoting the Southern Metropolis News, said the babies were removed from their families by local officials in the province's Zhenyuan county. Most of them were handed over to foreign adoptive parents as orphans at a price of $3,000 each.
The report said one poor farming couple, who are among the affected 80 families, had to hand over their fifth baby, a girl, to local family planning officials because they couldn't pay the appropriate fine under China's two-child policy.
The report said the husband, like other fathers in the county, wanted and got a boy after three girls. The fifth baby was again a girl as the family struggled to support all five on an annual income of about $732.

We basically impose this quota on ourselves. The average birthrate is 1.6 per family.
The less fortunate have more children because they are rewarded by our government.
Another for the “Chinese are Barbarians” file.

How did foreign parents get Chinese babies to sell?
Well......thank leftists we have abortion,so we won’t needlessly suffer this kind of atrocity! (/sarc,big time)
I only wonder this because they are treating as terrorists those that have served in our Military.
“The less fortunate have more children because they are rewarded by our government.”
We have four boys that are healthy, happy and sound. We are not well off financially by any means and we DO NOT rely on any welfare, so there are exceptions.
In other words, the American government imposes a fine on those who do not have children...they must pay a surcharge, a fee, for the same income as those with kids.
Such tax policies are a way for the government to say, “Do as we say or we’ll fine you.”
The American people have gotten used to a Federal income tax (long ago), and now that they are lulled into deductions, credits, etc., look for this technique of government control to increase.
My apology for not being clear and no disrespect meant to working families like yourself.
I am trying to be PC.
Maybe I should have wrote, inner city, women having multiple children of different fathers are rewarded and encouraged.
Being PC sucks.
Just too bad more "traditional" families don't have more children.
No kidding. Foaming at the mouth for my next tax break. A real tax break would be to eliminate the personal income tax all together.
And you are correct, more taxes, fees and VAT's to come.
I understood your meaning, absolutely no offense taken. A working family does indeed have no reason to be offended.
I have witnessed from various places I lived the “families” you speak of and have even overheard the conversations about having more children so they could receive more welfare. Sadly there are generations of these people.
Those little Chinese girls with US passports and a good education will be highly sought after by millionaires in China.
Perhaps very partially true. Many have more children because they are intent only on having sex and not smart enough to use birth control effectively. The men are intent on making babies and, not having real jobs, don't even consider it part of their responsibility to take care of them. That's womens work.
I am so glad you are principled and pay your full share of taxes by not claiming that tax exemption government reward for having children!
Nearly all so-called “conservatives” on FR show their true liberal colors by supporting such governmental control measures, rather than standing up and saying that taxing people extra for not having children, a mortgage, etc., is unAmerican.
No doubt. In the quest to have sons, China will end up with a 10 to 1 ratio of men to women.
20 years from now you could end up with a big homosexual society. Otherwise come the US and meet the girls, now women that were put up for adoption.
Are they not also American citizens or are they just non abortions gone wrong and should be left to die as ObaMao would have it?
Do you take your exemption?
I don't see your reasoning that only some people should have exemptions and other not. Should we have to reach a certain age to have an exemption?
These people that have children and pay taxes are the working people!
