In China: Using the Internet to Get Rid of Your Baby?
via The Atlantic:

A Guangzhou woman contemplating divorce attempted to give away her baby on second-hand-goods website, according to a Sina News article.
The mother, age 30, said that she was not ready to raise a child alone. She reportedly listed her 2-month-old baby boy as a “99 percent new” item, 100 percent free, and attached the above picture of her child on the site. She still hasn’t found a taker.

FJP: Wait, really?
