Abstract:

Adopting children from poor countries is becoming more and more popular. Pop stars and actors have made inter-country adoption trendy and the reduced fertility rate in the West leaves many families desperate to have a child. The pressure on the international adoption market is intense and the competition for the children is tough. A Baby Business reveals how cynical child traders in India are willing to do anything to provide children for waiting adoptive parents in Europe, America and Australia. It reveals how children have become a precious commodity worldwide and how inter-country adoption has become a lucrative baby business. The reporters go under cover as representatives from a European adoption agency and reveal how money - and not the best interest of the child - is the most important factor on an adoption market riddled with corruption on all levels of the adoption process.
