News: Babies for Sale on Chinese Ebay

While perusing as usual through The Drudge Report, this headline caught my eye. The BBC article says that there were advertisements where boys could be sold for the American equivalent of $3,450 and girls for $1,603. The report is still uncertain in that it could be a hoax, but given China's attempts at population control and birth control politicies, one must wonder if this was the next inevitable step in the slippery slope. Instead of killing your babies and disposing of them, why don't you make money off them? Sounds like a new business venture possible for some Chinese entrepreneurs.
