Malaysia: Babies for Sale

YEAR: 2016 | LENGTH: 1 part (26 minutes)  |  SOURCE: ALJAZEERA

description:

The online message, complete with photos of a tiny newborn, advertises an underground trade where babies are commodities worth thousands of dollars. Malaysia is a hub for baby selling, with buyers able to choose their own baby based on gender, race and skin colour. Some babies are bought by couples desperate to start a family. Others are sold to traffickers and forced to become sex slaves or beggars.
