A mother walks into a Taco Bell...and what does she do? No, she doesn't order a Beefy 5 Layer Burrito. She peddles her three-day old to a customer. Some people just shouldn't have children.
Heidi Lynn Knowles, 36, of Vancouver, Wash., reportedly stumbled into the restaurant and started taking bids from customers for her newborn son. The asking price ranged from $500 to $5,000. The cops were later called and showed up at a motel where Knowles was crashed. She was charged with attempted child selling-buying, a Class C felony, and was held on $50,000 bail.
Some customers reported that Knowles seemed drunk or high at the Taco Bell, but in court she claimed to have been clean from methamphetamine for a year. She also said that she was trying to sell her baby so she'd have more money to leave town and start a new life.

If she was taking bids, get another person to hold a “bidding war” with you to stall for time while a third person called the police.
Yes, in that particular case. Altho I guess I was thinking, would anyone participating open themselves up for legal trouble? They shouldn’t, but I don’t always trust the system.
Save the baby, abort the thing that gave birth.
