A 28 year old woman in the Ukraine has reportedly tried to sell her toddler daughter for her organs. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, these types of human trafficking crimes are not uncommon in the Ukraine. The government is trying to crack down on human organ trafficking as well as children being sold into human slavery.
Can you imagine what would have happened, had the mother been successful? Do you think the type of person who buys a toddler to cut out their organs is going to…who wants to even think about it? It’s sick.
The toddler has been recovered and is now in a state run hospital and the mother has been charged, however, in the Ukraine, the toddler’s fate and likelihood of being adopted is very much up in the air. The media is still run by the state and poverty and unemployment is high.
