    Default 10,000 Euros for a Baby

    Cabrera, María Trinidad Sánchez

    An Italian couple was arrested when trying to leave the country with a baby (4 months) whom they allegedly bought for 10,000 Euros.

    The mother of the child and four other Dominicans were also apprehended. They obviously are members of a criminal network selling children abroad.

    i see no problem. the adoption process is too damn hard. there are many people who would love to adopt but the paperwork takes too long. this way both sides are happy. birth parents get some support and adoptive parents get the baby they dreamed of.

    This was not an adoption, at least not by civilised standards.
    It was a sale organized by greedy criminals.
    I wonder how much money the mother of the baby was given...

    The second article states that the man had declared to be the father.

    I empathize with your point of view but once you head down this path it is a slippery slope. The stringent and strict adoption rules in place is for the protection of the babies. It should takes more than any Joe Shmoe with 10 grand to just come to a second or third world country and scoop up a baby and with good reason.

    Not necessarily. But when it comes to adoption background checks should be done. A financial assessment should be done. A feasibility study of the child's future home environment should be done. If you do not see the validity, the necessity and the benefit of these checks and balances then you are too far gone.

    The slippery slope that leads to baby factories, which has happened in some countries including Nigeria and Guatemala.

    My understanding of the article is that was how they would get the baby out of the country. That the foreign man would put his name on the birth certificate. Then get custody. Then, presumably, he would get an Italian passport for the baby.

    The DR does requires that couples be married for 5 years, be heterosexual.. no single parents.

    no such checks are done for everyone else to become a parent. all you need a spoonful of man juice spritzed into a willing womb. there is no qualification exam, background check or a financial assessment for biological parents. and it's not like they do not abuse, rape or kill own children. i think all this talk is just bullcrap to justify giant, greedy bureaucratic machine of useless jobs performed by useless people.
