Babies For Sale

 It is a tawdry business - the selling of babies over the Internet. The most sensational case yet is that of Tranda Wecker. Wecker is the American mother who went online to auction off her newborn twins. She sold them not once but twice, taking them back from one set of buyers after another offered double the money. In their short life, the six-month-old girls have been abandoned, sold, resold and taken from America to Britain. As sensational as this case is it is not an isolated one. Tara Brown investigates how baby traders are using the World Wide Web to cash in on America's lax adoption laws and take advantage of desperate couples.
